Ah well. I guess I should be thankful. Things could be worse for me.
Example 1: instead of coffee, I could be drinking tea.

It was meant to convey the many missed opportunities... not that they were all missed :)

Edit: Oh, and I wouldn't want anyone to think this (or anything else I post) is in ANY way autobiographical. :roll:

The anti-gravity unit hummed as the ground spun rapidly away beneath him.

The seal creaked and splintered. She stepped over the lunar soil, stretching. "After 10,000 years, I'm finally free!"

They longed for each other but could never be together until the night Lady broke her leash and leaped into his back yard.

He pulled out scissors, needle and thread. He found an empty page then delicately added another friend to his Face Book.

Good idea. Note that Dookiedan already posted a kickass, and winning, version of this meme.

In PB&Jelly's defence, that earlier Twabble was posted before PB&Jelly registered with the DC forums :)

It's hardly surprising that this meme should appear now and then, given the omnipresence of Facebook and the weirdness of DC forum participants' minds. :D

If we are all expected to be totally original in our posts, I for one would probably walk away.

WHAT?!! Everybody hasn't read (and memorized) all 400-ish pages (in many different subforums) of twabbles?! :x :( :D

Seriously, many do do due diligence with a 30 second search. It's not required, but someone may point out duplicates otherwise. :wink:
Plus, that particular twabble was very widely tweeted and also published in the podcast.

Apologies to PB&Jellyphish320. I did not mean that as harsh or a personal attack.

Jonathon loved his new game. He put all the pieces into the large plastic lined box then wiped the knife clean and smiled.

I tried to tutor Jedd in higher math, but Complex Numbers were just too complex for him. "That shit ain't real," he'd say.

Looks like it's true. There's nothing new under the sun. Or the moon, for that matter. :lol:

Nah it's cool. I was afraid it might have been done before, but thought I'd give a try away just in case it hadn't. Thanks for looking out.

The grading of Algernon's Complex Number exercises ended prematurely. The teacher lacked the required imagination.

Cain, the original badass, slew Abel, his only sibling. If only their mom had stopped asking them about grandchildren…

Historical note: Seth was born after the murder. Any others were born a while after that.

I think if they just stopped talking about begatting(sp?) and simply accept that getting laid is just plain fun ...
between consenting adults ... in the back of a Ford Crown Victoria ... in summer of 1978 ... ahh geez ...Make love not...

We could just take the 'Bible according to Hollywood route' and let Russell Crowe work it all out... but maybe we just don't want to go there... yes lets just leave Russell out of it. Mums don't like Russell at moment.
