Welcome a'oard, thefictionalist!

Alas, that was not a twabble; it was too short.

Also, the last word should be 'read, or perhaps 'eads if you are craft-y. ;)

I'm not an invisible tangerine I'm an unseen tangerine. It's just that no one ever notices me—I sat right behind you yesterday.
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.

Thanks - I was reading the wrong number of characters. I also clearly can't spell "bread". This does not bode well.

Her: a pretty, blonde virgin; Him: a crazed cult leader. When they met she fell in love. When they parted she fell in lava.

Perpetual War

Post by oneadem » Tue Apr 15, 2014 9:57 pm

The war began with the shriek of rockets, then ended years hence so quietly that no one even noticed, and so it continued.

Twabmentia

Post by oneadem » Tue Apr 15, 2014 11:44 pm

Although Alan's twabmentia had consumed 99 others in short order, he felt compelled to sacrifice one final character.

(Gang: please note that I had initially pasted in the wrong version. This explains any comments about word shortage.

Here is what I had originally posted: Although Al's twabmentia had consumed 99 others, he felt compelled to sacrifice one final character.

Above is the correct version I wanted to post. Please forgive a newbie's missteps.)

Bonus for coining "twabmentia", but demerits for that not being a twabble. (You sacrificed 14 characters. ;) )

Hmmm. And they were both more "accomplished" in legend than in actual life... (Counting only Star Wars movie canon, anyway)

Living in Tango

They made love, until they hated each other; they hated each other, until they made love again, forever living in tango.

A clause is a clause if you obey the laws to write, giving pause to some because they read. But faux pas withdraw applause.

A phrase conveys ideas in many ways but not always. Raising a great phrase can daze; it stays in mind and pays with praise.

A verb that's superb can perturb and disturb. A pronoun is renowned for wearing the crown. Some words have four letters.

The Switch

Sparks and dimming lights ended eight years on death row as the dyslexic jailer realized 6 and 9 had switched positions.

Cockroaches ate him alive, swarming, an oily mass preening afterward, eggs laid, fertilized, beside my mounting pin.

I triple-dog dare Norm to read this one on the podcast!

But there seems to be some errors. You've got "Bite be". That should probably be "Bite me", or "Byte me". Punctuation is also missing as is any of the necessary string packaging -- this would cause a buffer overflow! (But never mind that. Just download this nice, safe, twabble onto your machine. And while you're at it, turn off that pesky antivirus. :twisted: )
