Born Under A Bad Sign...

Post by ROU Killing Time » Fri Oct 03, 2014 6:21 am

Twain was born under Halley's Comet and died the same -- I arrived under the missiles of October. This causes me concern.

Trepidaciously, Brian sat in the darkened booth and leaned close to the screen.
"Bless me father, for I have Twabbled".

Twabble at t'Mill

Post by pondspider » Fri Oct 03, 2014 11:20 am

Since moving in, he'd had twabble with his mouth; he couldn't stop drabbling.
He was living in The House of the Awful Pun.

Drabble twabble

Post by pondspider » Fri Oct 03, 2014 11:24 am

Brian was having twabble with his mouth; he kept drabbling.
And his typos were worse than ever, despite the medication.

Theologians in the Vatican parse the venial twabbles and mortal drabble... Can 100 devils can stand on the head of a pin?

I'm going to passover a twabble about the Vatican. I think I should try for comedy that's a few shades lighter than Ebony.

As Capt Kirk famously said, "Second star to the right and straight on till morning". That should get you there. Failing that, try exploring the back of your wardrobe.
