You really spend too much time around the twabble thread, ASID. ;-)

True, but I've got 1800+ posts to go, to get my "Notorious Forum Hog" status. :wink:

I don't think I could stand spending much time in the other threads. The temptation to write a drabble would be too great and I waste enough time here as it is.

I hear the podcasts 2 to 6 weeks after they come out, and hours away from my 'puters -- so about the only feed back I can remember when I get back would be to repeat one or more of:
  • "Me likey."
  • "Good audio production, but what's with the &$#@! story choice(s)?!" (Although, admittedly, this applies to PodCastle much more often than Drabblecast.)
  • "Hey Norm, too much of your breath noises, especially inhales, are coming through."

You deserve a title, and I'd be happy to share NFH, but something more tailor-made seems appropriate.

Twabble Nazi comes to mind as a suitable moniker.

Godwin's Law, so soon? Really? If I was a Nazi, then you might be shipped off to {censored} -- after a "fair trial", of course. :wink:

At least call me a Twabble Troll, it's got the alliteration bonus.

Or maybe you meant it like GreatNorthernTroll did... I'd make a t'wabble, t'wabble Nazi (but a fair-to-middlin' troll).

ASID, I don't know how you do that, but it does prove that the twabble is memorable. Woulda been foul if he had rephrased someone else's. But one of the few benefits of senility is to laugh every day at the same punchline. To lose your virginity again and again. No wait, that's two benefits. :roll:

Nice. :D
No, not nice. This is a reposting of an earlier twabble.
Lots of extremely good twabbles (not saying I'm fond of this one) get overlooked for the "contest". I don't think that should be a license to repost them here.

Maybe start a different thread: "My favorite overlooked twabbles", or some such -- maybe.
Whoops, sorry. I hadn't marked it as green in my list, and suddenly thought it appropriate.

They're all memorable! Can't. Get them. Out. of. my. head.
You know that affliction where you start thinking in headlines, sound-bites, and twabbles? My nurse says they going to name it after me.

As for that virginity thing, I think there's a surgery for that... :?

You mean you hadn't realized a variation was already posted?

And yes, it was appropriate to Lovecraft Month. I just didn't want a pattern of repostings to get started (at least not in this thread). Although something like "I posted a variation of this here (give link). This is an improved version." is probably okay.

In a way, this sounds to me like a sad comment on the state of the economy.
It is forbidden that working adults witness these Initiation Rituals.

Yep. I found a bunch of twabbles I had previously written when I opened it up to try some more, and I had marked all the ones I'd already posted in green. Apparently I forgot to change that one, so jumped on it when I thought of lovecraft month. I am suitably chastised, and should probably check I marked all the others correctly.
