Very nice! Morally despicable but twabble-y delicious.

Do you need to edit the title? "The" what?

Wow, that's great, made me LOL.

That's either too cute to live or over my head. Sure it's not "Thee"?

Edit: I guess not. This is like the first version of the "who's on first" joke -- doesn't really stand scrutiny but, hey, it was before The Simpsons.

How to fix without killing the joke? ... "A girl named 'The'"?

Not counting the name confusion, this is still a great twabble.

:lol: I suspect it was more under rather than over. It's closely related to a pun in a sense.

I hope it's just too cute to live. :lol:

I don't think that the Ko Rule would apply here, unless it's possible to re-embowel someone?
Actually, some of the most painful disembowelment happens during Ko's. You think you're just fighting over .5 points, then he kills your whole dragon.

We'll be sad if dogs and cats transcend sapience and leave Earth. What will we do with their squeaky toys and catnip mice?

What Every Mac User Knows

The help desk people didn't inform me that when I zapped my PRAM, it might zap me back. Now my brain is stuck in 'safe mode.'

Good one!
It's 101 characters, though.

Remember that when the cats and dogs are gone, people will foolishly take chimpanzees, apes, etc. for pets.
We all know where that leads!

I bet I missed the period at the end. Thanks for the catch! :) I have revised.

This one is a little too autobiolgraphical, but I guess you have to go with what inspires you.

Images of champagne and kisses filled her as she made final tweaks to the Machine. All she needed was some of Norm's hair.

Excellent! Your first post to the forum is our first stalker-twabble. :D

Welcome aboard. Norm's a lucky guy. :P

Thanks! xD I'm thinking about writing all of my twitfics about Norm, at least until he gets creeped out and bans me. Or I was thinking about this one:

Garin recalled their last night together, her grip on his bare shoulders, his sighs, and her passionate cry: "Oh Norm!"


You don't think I'm being a little too forward with Norm, do you?
