Acrostic Twabble Challenge

Postby Algernon Sydney is Dead » Tue Mar 02, 2010 12:11 am

Amy butchers cats daily, explained Fred. Gets her idiot Jewish kids live meat. Now, other people quail regarding such.

That twabble uses the alphabet, in order, as the first letter of each word. Think you can do better, be-yotches?

Rules:
  1. Must be twabble length.
  2. Must have correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
  3. Should be coherent and should attempt to tell a "story".
  4. Must be an acrostic of something suitable.
  5. Special bonus points if it's in alphabetical order, not necessarily starting at 'A'.
    So, ABCD... and XYZA... are good. BADC, etc., is not.

Winner gets ?? and also gets to use the twisted smiley ( :twisted: ) with impunity.

Anthony brutally cuffed Dorothy's ear for gripping him incorrectly, just killing little multitudes, not on purpose.

Excellent 1st phrase. Then it gets cryptic.

Unless... Gripping his *what*? Something that releases little multitudes?! :shock: :oops: :?

But how can any of that not be on purpose? Rather, it would be damn (literally, per many religious texts) the consequences.

Peterson once nastily made leering kindergarten jack-o-lanterns in his gardens, for every day children backed away.

Double entendres filled Gertrude's hot imagination. Just knowing Lenny's manly, nevertheless oily, passion quest.

Rosa "Queasy" Perez only needs more little kids, just in her gullet. For evening dessert, consider bringing antacids.

Ever feel giddy, having inadequate justification?
Kindly listen; my notions on purely quality reasons should tally.

I'm just sayin the chalk lines still show through the paint. Mixing metaphors horribly here, but sure, there may be an acrostic Shakespeare out there that will build a Taj Mahal out of this form, but you've got the channeller of Miss Grimsley fudging on grammer, for goodness sake.

The Atlantic jester made Agra's heritage a letdown.
At the least, a negative tribute in class. 'Cause it's too yokelly.


(Taj Mahal, Atlantic City). Note that the original compound is in Agra, India.
For those unfamiliar with Trump, he has a thing for "class".


PS: The acrostic for "Atlantic City" seems apropos. Chamber of commerce, call me! 8)

ASID, you may never get Shakespeare from this, but it you can import some Chinese egg timers and a truckload of Bananagram letter tiles, and somehow incorporate your TwitFic Sizing Tool, you will be able to present it to Milton Bradley for a pretty decent game.

Hmm. Can I incorporate elements from Operation? The player would get tazed if he went over length -- good times!

Sure! And for extra joy, you could decalibrate your sizing tool.

Zoe yodeled Xanadu while Vic unsuccessfully tried singing random quotes. Pointing out notes missed, Liz kept joking.

"Veritably", Einstein lamented after. Surely quarks utilize energy zanily. Relativity's useless; let's eat sushi.
