Watching Jim and the vials containing the nerve gas crash to the floor, Dan realizes hiring a narcoleptic was a mistake.

Studying the master's music, I felt as if his spirit possessed mine. Only then could I understand his Demon's Serenade.

I like this second version better. It's an old meme, but a goodie. :)

Good one. It reminds me, back in the late '70's / early '80's, there was this great cartoon showing a lab full of scientists gasping as they fell to the floor, dying. At the feet of one was a smashed test tube. Another scientist was glaring at him and choking out "Butterfingers".

Anyone got a line on that cartoon? My GoogleFu has failed me.

I don't think so, but I had searched for it that way too. IIRC, it was more in Gahan Wilson's style.

Damn, old-fart cartoonists! Don't have the courtesy to scan and post all of their old work onto the ultranet, for free! :roll:

Hello, everyone! First post here. Saw the format and had to give it a go:



It only takes a tablespoon of water to drown, say, a cheating spouse. And it takes even less if you're married to a cyborg.

When I die, I want to go out like my old man: drunk, dressed as Hello Kitty, and riding a lawnmower through a crowd of mimes.

They shut down government "services" (like they ever really worked). But, they didn't shut down the fleecing service!


PS: These last two twabbles are not related. Really.

There are an infinite number of ways to die. Unfortunately, there are only a finite number of worlds in which they count.

The tortured screams of the people dying in agony are muffled by thumping Swedish disco music, here in my ABBA-ttoir...

The food replicator was great when we bought it, but it made less and less every time.

Both hungry, we shared a raspberry.
