My neighbor gave me a hand while I was cleaning out my gutters. I didn’t want to know where he obtained severed appendage.

She massaged my kidney

The clouds looked like mad mutated marshmallows. The first raindrop fell, scorching the ground. The attack had begun.

I don't think it's as good as my first one, but maybe it will better complement a story? You're welcome.
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

No you're not. You're good but for that first word (which you can edit in your post (hint, hint) ;) ).

No you are not. Billygoat Gruff was just an old story inspired by ASID.
You just happened to catch him in a particularly fowl mood.
