Okay, I had a weird suspicion about something just minutes ago and had to check. This isn't mine. Rather it's two lines, from a song* I like, that just happen to total up to 100 characters.

You have heard the exhortation, "Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers", and taken it to heart; so much that when you now hear lame lyrics your first reaction is not "lame lyrics", but "Hey! That's 100 characters!"

All the intrigues of Earth -- the wars, famines and schemes -- mattered not one wit to the universe.
No, the soaps were on.

Yeah welcome, but there's been a diplomatic incident! ...

"Damn bike's faulty!"

Ze plane turns left and right, mon vieux, non?

Unless, of course, there are Snakes on the Plane, in which case the plane can also go down.

plainly

Post by Undervoice » Tue Jun 08, 2010 11:46 pm


=In front of the orangutang=

A plain plane was plainly a pain to plane the plane's window panes on two planes. Meanwhile, the plane ate the plantains.


i'm too much of a noob for the comments,
geesh. 'plane' is also a genus of crab

Non, ma gerbille!

Ze front plane must break the back plane, or from turning you will abstain.
If Physics you disdain; that's plain insane.

The rain can't mainly stay anywhere, otherwise that place would be miles underwater (See Kirchhoff's Laws).
Naw, such rain flows into the sewers -- which carry it to France and the Evian bottling facility.
Drink up! ;)

Had a run-in with Dora the Explorer in Calcutta. Only one of us made it out alive. Boots still at large. Swiper owes me big.

They found me hours later, catatonic, face frozen in unspoken horror, still at the table, my bowl of Cthul-Ohs uneaten.

This is very good, but 4 subclauses makes for a little choppiness.

Little Red heard barking and ran to Grandma's home. She found Nana vacuuming the rug, while the wolf cowered in a corner.

I survived the crunch; mass compressed, energy conserved, and as I walked among giants through a hole there came a bang.
