Just think of those monkeys (NTBCW "Monkies") riding horses, in the circus, and all should be right in your world. :P

Wolfman lawyer knew the contract wouldn't hold up as written. Luckily he had just the right clause to correct the issue.

Ever since Jarod was a tot, he made awful jokes that made people groan. His parents referred to him as their little cereal punster.

The moonlight shone on the bloody ruin of my right hand. Joe smirked and I had to admit I no longer lived a life sans regret.

40 years, alone in my lab, & I'd encoded the char set into 4 bits! Oh, the punch card savings! My work was called half ASCII.

Thank you! I've been listening to The Drabblecast for a couple years now and have wanted to try to write a one hundred character story for a while. It's not as easy as I expected it to be!

O'Riley threw back another pint. Six more and he collapsed dead in peanut shells. Doc Sean determined he died of thirst.
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.
