I did recalculate the character count and realize I've come up short by 1 character. My character count algorithm incorrectly counted an embedded newline I had in my file. I've since revised my character count script (http://drabblecast.freeforums.org/char- ... tml#p14742" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false) to take this into consideration.
On the upside, you can get your 100th character by changing god's gender to female. :D

I feel cheeky as a nudist. But there are horrors on the beach -- blinding terror among full moons. That's the naked truth.

Staff Infection

I called the fury from the depths. Snow. Ice. Driving winds. A storm not seen in a hundred years. Anything to get out of a meeting.

Bless you! You also prevented our DC masters from "helping" us for a few days. :)

I do what I can, but mostly for myself. If others feel helped, so be it. I mistakenly believed that punctuation didn't count, but clearly see now that it does. Mea culpa.

As penance, I'll throw this one out:
Sphincter Reaction
The Punctuation Police were coming. I could hear their footsteps in the hallway. They yell, "Drop it!" I empty my colon.

Hey, at least the character count's right.

You mean, "Squeeze this one out"? :D

Anywho, penance nothing. That twabble was worthy and the first solid chuckle I've got from someone else's twabble in days. :P

I'd go as far as to say, it was a gas!

Norm could do worse than to make this a winner.

Okay, have mercy now, please. You guys probably like the Matrix because of the sexy code streaming down the monitors. And I realize that, in it's raw form, the Drabblecast is just The Matrix, nothing but ones and zeroes. But damn it, I want my steak and cigar, and a nice glass of red wine. And I don't care who has to die to get it for me. Mr. Smith has promised good to me.

By the way, Strawman could tell you a thing or two about the benefits of a high-fiber diet. But you'd need to EAT ME!

Moth Man would hang around streetlights when not fighting crime. The town didn't mind, until their sheep went missing.

The public's outrage got bloody and took to the streets. Angry posts were posted. Facebook changed their layout again.

nice 100 character story. Perhaps if it were more clear what was happening to the sheep. Were they more afraid of Moth Man, or was he eating them. Just that much more clarity would turn it into a fantastic 100 character story. i am also 100% sure that 100 characters it difficult and good job. Welcome to the forum.

Squirrel Boy was popular in town, he would climb almost anything. Then he got totally fat and ruined all the power lines.

Bitten by a radioactive beaver, Bill grew a beaver tail and dammed the mississippi.
Then the radiation gave him cancer.


Struck by lighting in a port-a-potty at the county fair, Turd Boy received super powers, very disgusting super powers.

The aldermen noticed an evil trend and sent all the boys far away.
But it was in vain. Tampon Girl was spawned the next day.


PS, I especially liked the Squirrel Boy one.

Tampon Girl's irrational crime fighting methods were forgiven when she absorbed the town pool saving the mayor's son.

Alas, Tampon Girl's ignoble career was cut short when the senior prom and her "monthly visitor" came in the same period.

Tampon Girl? Psh, she doesn't stand a chance against the PMS Avenger :wink:
