Krampus at Christmas

Post by GreatNorthernTroll » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:29 am

I'm hearing of this Krampus dude a lot. He does things that Santa just does not! If it's true, I'm leaving candy in my shoe!

He knows if you've been bad or good, but why take the chance

You better watch out. You better be spry. If Krampus gets you, you'll find out why. Krampus is gonna take you down to Hell!

"Holly Carp"! A twabble from Norm! I think that's a first.

PS, Girls: I ain't so picky. You wanna call it magical or bionic, it's all good, pants-wise. :)

Translation? She said you rolled a critical fail against your sword thrust skill and failed to connect for 2d +1 damage.

Spread by a Christmas tree vector, temps above 65°F triggered hatching; 98.6°F was ideal for the aliens' larval stage.

Should have been aliens', not alien's. I should know better than to post after midnight. Argh.

This had me thinking of the Discovery Kids show "Bigfoot Presents: Meteor and the Mighty Monster Trucks", and Drabblecast B-Sides' "Exploring" by Bryce Albertson ^_^

You know you can "ninja edit" your post to correct such things. ;)

I did NOT know that! But I do now, and that worked. Thanks!

Making the Most of Airline Safety Instructions

Post by HR_Duff_n_Stuff » Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:16 pm

Something stuck in my head when I had to listen to the United cabin spiel four times in 24 hours.

Airline Safety

Infant Buoyancy Devices Available, the crew said.

In the water, four babies kept me nicely afloat.

Charming sentiment, but it is not a proper twabble length!

Don't beat yerself up over Aliens vs Alien's... Either one works. It just makes it plural vs singular.

Nice one. :D Fix the length and it could be a winner!

:shock: OOPS, I see now from my home copy I'd been watching the total characters, rather than the payload characters. Lets try that again, same idea, slightly more non-spaces.

The cabin attendant said that Infant Buoyancy Devices Were Available.
