Email viruses are worse than ever. Yesterday I clicked one that promised, "Hot girls in your area!"
It summoned a demon.

Hmmm, too bad you couldn't fit "succubus" in as the punch-line.

I think demon works better -- it conjures fire and peril quite readily.
A Succubus might be hot in only one sense of the word and doesn't command as much respect.

But here's a version, just for you...
Email viruses are worse than ever. Yesterday I opened one that promised, "Hot girls in your area!"
A succubus appeared.

Pinocchio was the first to suffer a paradoxical aneurism. His last words; "My nose is about to grow."

This idea has potential.

Nit-Nazi says it's a triple foul, though... "aneurysm" is misspellerized; it's only 84 chars long, by twabble rules; The full character count is 101 chars -- so it's too long if the rules are ignored.


Every human's nose grows a little bit over each year. Silly fools think it's aging; it's really an accumulation of lies.

"More better".

How come no one ever talks about Pinocchio's boogers?
Are they sawdust, aphids, or tree sap?
"Mmmm. Smells pine fresh!"

Sorry, ASID, but you need to correct to 'boogers'.
As you undoubtedly know, 'buggers' refers to the act of sodomy, not the little greenies. In fact, the Wikipedia entry has this tantalizing bit:

Etymologically, a "Bugger" was a "Bulgre" (French Bougre). Originally, it was derived from the French word "Boulgrerie" ("of Bulgaria"), meaning the medieval Bulgarian clerical sect of the Bogomils.

Apparently, the abuse scandal goes back a ways.

Man, I've got to remember this one the next time I play 'Dictionary'.

Bugger all!
An innocent mistake; I'm sure Pinocchio's nose is not brown. (Where's that damn halo smiley?)

The Pinnochio series of twabbles and rejoinders is a high point in this art form. I particularly like your "accumulation of lies" bit, even if the booger (bugger) one was funnier. Kudos to myke for starting that meme. I'd give the "win" to him on the basis of originality (oh wait, my vote doesn't count) but they are all excellent and epitomize what is best and strangest in this thread.

“Marry me.”
“No.”
“Why not?”
“I’m dead,” said the zombie.
“Dead?”
“Dead.”
“So?”
You’re not.”
“But baby, I can change.”

Edward is a nice enough vampire, I admit, but we aren't exactly friends. I mean, I'd likely never go for a pint with him...

Ooh. Just realized what a monkey wrench it'd be to keep that part in its original form. You'd never even get to the reception
