Speeding away from yet another botched robbery, Johnny realized the truth: it was time to divorce his partner in crime.

After two weeks work raising, grooming and riding ponies, it dawned on me: It really does have to be YOUR OWN dream job...

I got kicked out of the kills stuff with his bear hands club, they said using trophies from the grizzly hunt was cheating.

Was the barista a precog? Telepathic? Did it really matter? His coffee was waiting for him on the counter every morning.

Gus is excited to have someone to kiss at the stroke of midnight this New Year's Eve. She's waiting for him in the freezer.

We've all finally agreed to a resolution for the New Year. And about damn time, too; New York is already running at 1080p.

Oh, there's nothing ambiguous about Bruce's gay-ity.
Chris O'Donnell, who portrayed Robin wrote:it wasn't so much the nipples that bothered me. It was the codpiece. ...a big deal, especially with Joel directing. ...going back and looking and seeing some of the pictures, it was very unusual.
Also, your version loses at least one of the "bird" entendres.

Yeah, but it also loses the misogyny, so on the balance, I prefer Batman. :wink:

I suppose it could be misogyny, but I prefer to think of it as philogyny. :)

Eh, it hits a little too close to home to be funny for me, but of course YMMV.

Seems appropriate?

My shrink said that to love others, I must grow to love myself.
But when I loved myself in front of her, she called the cops!

You bastard! You sniped an idea I had in my reserve pile...

She had a lovely temperament and a pure heart.
Which she kept in a jar.
That's why I loved her dearly, but safely from afar.


Admit it, you've been snooping around my crawl space. :shock: :)
ASiD,
I take personal issue with you accusation of inept espionage! If I’d been snooping, you would have seen or suspected nothing, as I still have my Ninja Merit badge from the Cub Scouts (I’m sure it’s around here somewhere, and not in that box of figments I keep in the forefront of my mind…) And any way, if I’d been pillaging, my submission would have been much better, because your Twab is far more poetic than what I submitted. Great job again.

That's pretty impressive! Normally, Cub Scouts can't earn Merit Badges; they have to advance to Boy Scouts for that. I don't have a Ninja Merit badge (can't seem to find any record of them existing), but I do have a Stalking merit badge (no shit). I wonder why they discontinued that one? :twisted:

Also, your twabble was just as good as mine, just less rhyme-y. (Probably doesn't have a cheesy, beat-box soundtrack, either.)
