That was pretty much my reaction as well... Any drabble that can wrench such emotion is such short a time is a good one, methinks.

Whiskey

You don't need whiskey to drink away sorrows if you can't remember them. I have a hard time remembering. I wish I could drink to remember, because I have many more good memories than sorrows. My memories are fading. I'm doing my best to keep it from slowing me down as it slowly erodes my memory. I'l...

I don't know where they go, but I don't believe you turn criminals into people that help the poor, and me and my bat here are going to settle this little disagreement. The thug swung the bat. Th...

The Popular Mechanic

Lenny fixed everyone's car. The competitor, Charles, had to close shop because Lenny's such a popular mechanic. Charles is still bitter. Lenny used to swear constantly. Even a slight bang on his knuckles would get him cursing. When his wife gave birth to their baby, he made the promise to stop cussi...

Faces

Sad Betty crawled down the shelf. She walked across the aisle and stole a knife from a commando. He never paid any attention to her. She slunk back to her spot on the shelf. Beside her was Smiling Sarah. She giggled as the commando waved to her. When no one was looking, Betty pulled Sarah into the s...

Best Ever

"OK kids, who wants a balloon hat!" "This clown is lame and scary!" "How about you Timmy, it is your birthday after all!" The clown twisted together some balloons. Little did the children know that the balloons would be twisted into an evil shape that would eat the mind of Timmy, feeding the clown. ...

Thor Goes to Ikea

Thor and Loki gathered a pencil and a store map. In the Ikea showroom, Thor wrote down row and bin numbers for the desired items, asking Loki for advice. Ikea was the best place to get magical weapons and armor in Asgard. Down in the self-serve warehouse, Thor gathered up his items. Mjöllnir, a migh...

O!

Ollie ordered an ostrich omelet but asked they omit the onions. Oliver the waiter gave the order to Otto the chef. Ollie ogled at the opulent onyx ornaments adorning Lady Olivia's ornate outfit. From outside entered an overly obese officer of the order. It seemed that Lady Olivia obviously overstepp...

Once you pop ...

"Please, can I touch it, just once?" Timmy's father shook his head gravely. "It must'nt ever be opened. To avoid temptation, you mustn't touch it." Timmy kept staring. "Pay it no mind. We must guard it, but we needn't stare at it." His father slept. Timmy stared at it, then touched it. Open me! The ...

Uhm, that was the most disturbing, awkward, cringe-inducing and off-the-wall story in a long time, if not all time.

I liked it.

I don't understand why it's a "zombi infection", though, since the infected don't turn into shambling people-eaters. It would seemed better if you just called it "the plague." I guess that depends how you define a zombie. "Zombie" has its own visual imagery built in, where "plaque" does not, so I'd...

Arthur's Wife

Arthur's wife, Yvon, had the zombie infection. The greening skin made it impossible to hide, but it could be slowed. They abstained from physical contact. The scientists working on the cure didn't know why, but this slowed the spread of the infection in the body. Even a small touch accelerated it by...

The main story didn't really go anywhere that off the beaten track* (aside from squid relations). Girl means guy, guy proves to be unfaithful, girl eats guy for dinner, literally. The plot wasn't all that amazing. It was amusing though, and I was bummed that it ended as soon as it did. An enjoyable ...

I agree with StalinSays, a sad ending. I'm not an animal rights activist by any means, but I think you should be nice to animals. Growing up we had a neighbor with a tiny yard and a giant great dane. It never seemed happy, always whimpering and sad. They took it on walks for sure, but I don't think ...

Yeah, I heard this on Clonepod too. This version was far better. I just read a story for Clonepod ... I hope I did ok. I learned a lot about my audio hardware after I did that recording, so, I hope it isn't bad.

Not only is this a top Drabblecast story in recent history, it is a top story in many of the short fiction podcasts I listen to in recent history. Cool sci-fi gadget, believable and interesting characters, a good chickle ending, a pop culture-retarted TV mashup spinnoff series joke, and good readers...

I saw the ending coming before he was going to off himself, then thought I was wrong, then found out I was actually right. I'd say I kinda enjoyed the story. Not great, not bad, bits were funny. As the guy in UHF said: "Guns don't kill people, I do." Or as some real person said "A well armed nation ...
