World-weary, he sat at his desk, unable to bring his thoughts into focus.
Unfathomable depths of despair.

Hunger. No food.

I can't draw to save my life! He'd always said it never guessing it would be tested. Hand shaking, he picked up the pencil.

One of our eye's is missing

After an impromptu jazz session, Alfred realised he'd mislaid an eye. He found it skewered on the trombone's water key.

Nothing much

I really have no idea what this one's about. Probably best to skip it and move on to the next one which, I'm sure, is better.

He read the nonsense in the previous posts and sighed.
How many more of these do I have to read, for pity's sake?

You're familiar with the million monkeys with a million typewriters eventually coming up with Shakespeare. What's the over/under on a hundred monkeys producing a twabble?

Hey, keep it down, back there!

*Do you have any idea how noisy a hundred monkeys are?*

I think it's an infinite number of monkeys :roll:

Yeah. That was at the back of my mind as I posted the above... There's a lot of junk in there... I really must have a clear-out sometime :|

I reckon it's still an infinite number, even for a Twabble, just a different kind of infinite :wink:
