For the record, I do not and have never had a Reddit account! A friend sent it to me.

Are Drabblecast Demerits something collectible? For Drabblescouts? Is someone going to mail me one? :D

Sure, you can buy 'em at $5.50 per box, plus postage. Checks payable to "ASiD".

But be careful, mocking the demerit system can get you placed on Double Secret Probation at your nearest school and/or Moose lodge.

He said, "You'll join the club,"
and I was, at first, flattered.
But then he swung a mace at me;

They say, "Write about what you know." So she heeded the advice, and had an excellent career writing rejection notices.

I woke to see a dead girl at the foot of my bed. I stare, horrified, and wish that I had forwarded that chain email last week.

No, that girl was put there as a warning for even thinking about spamming a chain email.

A fulginous ocean crashed upon the ashen shore of bones as seagulls wheeled overhead. And here I am without alka seltzer

Ah, but you can crush up the bones and, using a little sea salt, make various bicarbonates -- the key ingredients for that product.

Grammar Nazi notes: fuliginous is mispellerized; proper name not treated properly; poor "punctuality" at the end. ;)
