Toot

Does a Twabble have to be funny? It is a question that lies at the soul of every question and in the answer but one tiny fart.

Put the "Art" in fart
and people still don't think you smart.
If it's a good thought
don't spoil it
by invoking the toilet.

I decided to trace my family's history. In the process I discovered some Grizzly. It was just so completely unbearable.

"Quit leaving the toilet seat up!" she screamed, "I'm sick of cleaning up the slime when those tentacles come out of it!"

It cannot be repeated too often: Never ever shake your baby. Everyone should know by now that they taste better as malts.

When Dr. Bill Kronen turned on the intangibility device he fell through the floor, all the way to the center of the Earth.

When Dr. Bill Kronen turned on the invisibility device the light passed right through his retinas. He was struck blind.

Dreamers that don't do starve us of the fantastic. Doers that don't dream choke us on the mundane. Proud to be the former.

Dr. Bill Kronen took the time machine back to kill his grandfather. He had life in prison to think about the damn paradox.

I understand you may be related to the famous Mr. Potter, but it doesn't change the fact that your patronus is a dust mite.

The Universe wasn't only expanding. It was obtaining more matter. It was found that instead of collapsing it would just Pop.

That's too long to be a twabble. Check it with the sizer.

It was discovered that our expanding Universe was also obtaining more matter. Instead of collapsing it would just Pop.

I didn't know punctuation counted.

Out of the Black Hole they came. Dense as Neutron Stars absorbing everything in their path. They were here for the light.

I just clicked on the moderator's profile and saw the option to "add foe". I think other sites should have enemies lists.

Lot's of sites do and most phpBB installations too.
Good to know you consider me a foe, though. :| :wink:

Note that the friend/foe functionality is almost useless... You can't see what your enemies are saying about you and your friends have no indication that you have actually friended them.

I didn't add you as a foe. It's just that when I looked at your profile was the first time I saw the two options and I thought it was cool. Maybe you are tho. You've greeted every other new twabbler with "welcome aboard" or something but not me. Then again, you've also been very prompt about approving my posts and getting them on the board and visible within seconds sometimes. So right now my feelings are mixed but definitely lean more toward friend.

Belated welcome aboard!
You caught me on a bad day when you first posted; sorry.

PS: You're only supposed to need approval for the first post. The last few days, the board has been refusing to graduate newly vetted users.

Ah, well I'm still gonna keep you in the friend category. You seem pretty cool and I'm not one to stand on ceremony, so being denied a greeting really doesn't effect my opinion about someone. I'm really enjoying making these twabbles, especially my Dr. Bill Konen series, about a scientist who fails exposing the flaws in various sci fi tropes. Anyway, keep up the good work and I will go back to hundred character posts from now on. Pardon the digression.

It was unsafe after dark while Johnny Depp developed his character for Dracula. Method acting does that to some people.
