My name is Alan Turing. I have broken a tooth, on a watch inside in my apple and appear to be fucking overdosing on Lithium.

Alas, it's way too short to be a twabble.

An effect of the witch trials in Europe that is seldom reported was the devastation of the thriving German hand-carved voodoo doll industry.

The Mohel was horrified when he saw his garden after several rainy days. Some "clippings" just should not be composted.

With apologies, but I figured since I put the work into drafting it I might as well post it.

That's way too long to be a twabble.
Also, it's "action figure" not "doll". :wink:

Yes, yes. *slow clap (one-handed)*

Of course, it would take Norm 2 tweets to post this and we, sadly, probably can't trick him into reading it on the podcast. :(

Humbug. I had it properly sized with the sizing tool, but must have pasted in my twitter-length version by mistake.

She gave me her heart. The rest of it, I kind of helped myself to. The spleen was easy, but the pancreas was a serious bitch.

She raced home from school, lifted the bedskirt and peered underneath. Writhing, undulating, slurping. It was ready.
