His tinfoil hat blocked Their probes, but Hal baked a potato in it. That's how They found him.

At least the potato's safe.

It seemed to me yesterday that I was getting too old to seize the little buggers. Days were like little Roadrunners dashing between my Wile E. Coyote legs. Grab at 'em all you want, but "Meep!" you always end up

Sweet. Graphical Twabbles. Although, I think we may need to count the pic at 1,000 words, which average out to how many characters?

I see what you did there. Perhaps we can settle on pixel count to determine validity.

She's the woman for me: Smart. Cute. Thighs strong enough to break a man's neck. Now she's insisting on a demonstration.

Jeesh. Yet another woman out to kill me! But for that MO, you can probably skip a few slots in line.

Okay, tell me how to make the little music notes appear, and I'll call off the thigh-neck-breaking woman?

Who says I want you to call her off?

The notes are just characters, just like ۩ is. You can copy and paste them.

Or, if you speak Unicode (and who doesn't), then you can type them with +266a and/or +266b.

Would it make a difference if I say her name's Oasis? (A guy with your avatar better get that reference!)

Of course! I know how to manipulate Oasis, I might even live through the experience.
I was afraid you might say "her" name was "Divine" or somesuch...

Hi! Interloper here. Pardon the amateur exuberance. :mrgreen:

Extending the drabble "nagging" theme to twabble-dom:

Later, lizard-woman gave her errant husband such a strenuous tongue-lashing, that it went in one ear and out the other.

Do hope I haven't shoved anything where it's not supposed to go. Or dug up old potatoes.

Leaving the field, promptly, without being asked. :wink:

Beware the tentacled Drabblecast, all ye who google nearly bare, lest "yer panties" end up in a dubious twabble, there.
