Well damn, that just inspired another.

Pretty good; I like it. It's always the bastard sneaking up behind you that stabs your kidney, while his buddy is picking a fight in front of you.

---Add an "up" between "sneaking" and "behind", and you've got yourself one heckuva little Twabble in your reply to me, too!

He can't help himself. It's an effort for him to not express himself in exactly 100 characters...

I bet his password is 100 characters long.

Don't fear, noctem93. Lots of people peruse this thread on a daily basis. But like most other forms of entertainment, most just sit back and enjoy, nary a word of encouragement passed along while we chuckle. But rest assured, we are chuckling.

Facing the raving crowd he shouted: Saints alive and snakes be damned! A twibble, a twaddle, my kingdom for one twabble.

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday!

This is my very first Twabble submission - enjoy!

I asked him to give his heart to me completely. Later that night a bloodied box appeared at my doorstep. It was still warm.

Perhaps our new friend isn't late, but rather just really early for next Valentine's Day. Thinking ahead, and all that.

Uh oh, that was exactly 100 characters. I see a pattern. Let's hope its only in forum posts, or bye-bye writing career...

^^
Hmm, so was that. OK, I'm done twabbling now. Back to full length sentences where I'm not worried about character count.

^^^
That one was too. Gosh, this is SO ADDICTING! I promise I'm done now. Really. No more Twabbles. Especially not this line.

For some reason, the last few posts have me thinking about creating monsters...

The Japanese were right. Atomic technology DOES breed huge monsters: The scare mongers crushing our news and schools.

I like "working hard" and "largely enjoy", but
I don't care for the extra syllable in the second line.

What nine syllables and then nine syllables? The syllable count is fine (at least on the first 2 lines), although I admit that the flow is a bit rough (I like it rough).

But, some compromises had to be made. Tradeoffs. What's a few million dead if it leads to a better society?

Anywho, can you make it better? Less-stiff? Sure I wasn't being "meta"? 8)

Bobby the Bull eagerly pulled his new remote-control matador out of the box. "Charge before use," he read. "Well, duh!"

My girlfriend gave it only one "hee," so that reply was a huge improvement! Thank you, sir! :-)
