We really underappreciate that, of all the things in the universe rain or snow could consist of, both are made of water..... I mean, what are the odds?

I've had this one floating around in my head for a while, but finally got round to actually organising it :)

The body lay on the table, ready for autopsy.

"What is your favorite element?" The student asked. The professor shouted "Surprise!" and then he pulled on the lever.

A Roman walks into a bar and orders a martinus. “You mean a martini” says the barman. “If I wanted 2 I would have ordered 2.”

More a joke than a twabble, but still funny.

I heard that on Prairie Home Companion a few weeks ago. Still funny.

Don't get much more highbrow than Latin punchlines.

She smiled at me and I knew: I'd love her even without the spell she had cast on me.
I don't know why she terrified me before…

Length Nazi says that this is too short. It's supposed to be 100 chars, not counting spaces.

David sighed as the light flickered in the bedroom again. It was just so damn hard to get rid of those human infestations!

I think I might set myself a challenge to compose 1 twabble a day for a week. Just so I can get better at plucking ideas from my head, rather than waiting for them to appear at inconvenient times, before slinking off when they suspect they might have to do a little work. I'm worried that I might experience a drastic reduction in quality if they are forced though, which is something I can ill-afford with my current standards. I can always tell myself that I'll eventually try doing it for a month, and then try drabbles for a week, and then a month, and then I'll be a creative genius, and will finally be able to write those faction descriptions to the standard I want them! Right, that's it - I'm doing it. Starting today (where today is yesterday) I'm going to write a twabble a day for a week. Please slap me (virtually) if I don't. Plus I'll give myself a 10 minute time limit from conception to completion so I don't start idly perambulating through my head to catch some ideas unaware whilst in lectures.
