…so there I knelt, drenched in the blood of my enemies. On a related note, why do my enemies insist on throwing blood at me?

It's funny, since I had to change the wording to fit it in! Just for you, Algernon, just for you...

Much confusion at this year's Running of the Bulls; they scheduled the annual Viking Convention over the same weekend.

"Running of the Bulls"... Is that what Bernanke is doing? :shock: (Besides stealing our life savings away with stealthy inflation.)

On a related note; there has been a marked increase in bovines-with-beards, in Spain. :)

Someone kept leaving poo on Bob's doorstep. Deep in the sewers, the ghost of his dog Corky enjoyed this new game of fetch.

No-one said "Remember to smell the roses" on planet Demeter. No-Nose Ned reminded everyone to respect flower power.

Alone, we didn't stand a chance. Together, we could hope it wasn't too hungry, and that the others had flunked gym class.

C. Crabbe fell into radioactive waste. Now he fights crime...by standing nearby and glowing at it until it gets cancer.

I pelt bad:
I typed in a fever
'Twas writer's beaver
My plot was in a jam

I couldn't have that

I don't give a damn
