We cheered as the 12 torches spun in perfect synchronization above the clown’s head. Then he caught them, 3 in each hand.
Alas, he (it) caught the flame end. Right? Right?!

Welcome aboard, Mr. Invalid! :)

I dunno. It didn't work out so well, in this old (¡Classic!) tale:

Seems my boss's "open door policy" was for a trap door.

My first Forums visit, so I'll try a Twabble:

Near death, the aged Zen master toppled. His last, ragged breaths muffled by the deafening sounds of one hand clapping.

"The shadow of your smile will color all my dreams."

Fine first effort, LazarusLong.
But two problems: (1) the typo and (2) Twabbles are exactly 100 characters not counting spaces. See the twabble sizer.

Finally: Welcome aboard!

Not bad, but Length-Nazi says it's now too long. It needs to be exactly 100 characters. Perhaps this edit:

Don't worry about the teething issues. Many of us have had hiccups as our fangs came in. :twisted:

Did anyone ever mention how suitable one of the short stories of Philip K. Dick that is in the public domain would be for an episode of the drabblecast? If not, and you elect me as your Tempodent, I promise to go back in time and mention it to Norm.

What the hey?!
  • I can't post a video of anyone singing "Happy Birthday" without paying a $20,000 advance royalty.
  • Every time I say "That's Mickey Mouse", jackbooted thugs from Disney Corp©®™ (#$%&*!) kick in the door.
Yet Philip K. Dick works are free?!!!
That's positively Dickian.
