Yeah, I think my best twabbles were largely overlooked.
And there's no way, in Heck, that Norm reads all of this thread.

PS. I'm down to 70%. Jebi has taken over much of the bulk-posting duties. :wink:
Glad I can help with the heavy lifting, but I will not post my second Twabble-Drabble until I get at least one comment on my first one. I thought it would be impossible to do one that worked, but I've got another, and I'm saving it for my 100th post. :)
Then I might take a little brake to recuperate my creative juices.

ASID and I had a twabble Showdown a while back. We exchanged twab-fire on a theme and ended up with this twabble/drabble:

We regretted it when the laws of physics were amended by The Committee and all the kittens and puppies turned inside out.

Kittens and puppies are cute and harmless. But, when turned "inside-out", they became unstoppable killing machines.

"My killing machine isn't working," complained William. "I pull on the trigger mechanism and all I get is hair balls."

"That's the problem, Billy. The killing machine was set to 'Evil', not mass murder. There should be no more hair balls."

Officer Dwyer never got the chance to regret his instructions to the little boy. Lil Bill had already reset the kitten.

Tasty cakes weren't people, urine, or hazardous waste. The ingredients were cute wubbles. The outrage was deafening.

CURSE OF THE TIME BENDERS:

Bits of fragmented reality fractured and shattered angrily as I slammed the emergency stop button on my time-machine.

Wondering where I had materialized this time, I looked through the porthole and saw a foul scene. It seemed I was in hell.

A charred and desolate landscape reaching to the horizon was all that I could see, until the winged creatures appeared.

The Infernal Demons ascended to smite God. But found that no such creature existed, and so they too become nonexistent.

Then, realizing that I was this God who didn't exist, and briefly fathoming everything, I faded away into nothingness.

This one's a bit more coherent. Not bad.

Well okay there's my two Twabble-Drabbles. And that second one is my 100th post. :)

But F5iver, I show your collaboration Twabble-Drabble as two characters short... :(

I feel a great weariness coming upon me now... Those SOBs are hard to get right! 8)

Pam remembered her mom's wedding toast: "May all of your problems be little ones."
Pam stared at her octuplets and wept.

"Snakes"
The old man crouched; naked and alone in the swamp water. Long ago the snakes had gotten to him. Now they lived in his head.

I guess that the snakes are in his head both literally and figuratively there, right? Nice.

Also, I checked your site out and voted some, good simple site, I've been thinking about getting a little place of my own on the web to show my work... or lack there of. :?

He dropped his bombs in no predictable pattern, but covering maximal area.
Yes, Barfy pooped like an expert mine layer.

Oh so silly, but I appreciate the the name Barfy. A play on barfly I would guess.

"Barfy" is a 5-letter name that hopefully has you thinking dog. It's also the name of a dog in a couple of comic strips. (Damn kids these days, don't take the newspaper!)

"Bark", "arf", barf up the partially chewed mouse, etc.

Having octuplets was hard enough. But when each had horns and cloven
hooves, the questions and stares were unbearable.

Ah, I see. For some reason my mental image was of some sort of flying creature. But I should of course have guessed dog by the "land mines".

I agree, pretty good. Although they are just parts, instead of a single twabble-drabble, like ROU challenged us to write... nudge, nudge. :)

I'm the baddest rappin zombie
No I don't wear abercrombie.
I'm so bad cause I'll eat your brains
Leave dogs your remains.


OR:

I'm the meanest rappin' alien
No I'm not episcopalian.
And I'm so hard because my body's metal
Your children I unsettle.


OR:

I'm a bad rappin squid
I'll pull out your heart n show what I did.
Don't come down to my place
Or I'll squirt ink in your face.

Is that what they mean by a "bum rap"? :D I kid; I kid!

Props for referencing Episcopalian. Of course, you're going to Hell. :wink:
