Trying to write Twabbles about Halloween is easily the hardest topic I've tried yet. It feels like everything has been done already :-/

Doesn't matter; if JMiriah's awesome Halloween twabble doesn't win, then we'll know for sure:
  1. There is no God.
  2. There must be Payola going to Norm and/or Drabblecast minions.
  3. Always clip your toenails before picking your nose.

Aw, thank you for that vote of confidence, Algernon!
Must go clip my toenails now...
“It’s what you do with it that counts.” But, one look at his twabble convinced her. A double entendre’s size does matter.

Actually, you're screwed, even if you don't think that.

We hide our selves, on this day
from vile fiends, come to play.
But if you think this is a mask
then God's favor you best ask.

Walking past a crowded corner where a coroner was having a coronary, I demanded from my deity a death less alliterative.

Using the Weight Watcher's food tracker is so frustrating. Gingerbread: 7 points per serving. Child: not even listed!

What I loved most about Madeline was her eyes. Deep blue, so expressive. Satisfyingly soft crunch and bursts of flavor.

"So many dusty cobwebs in here. I really should clean up this place." I thought to myself as I munched on my mates abdomen.

Laying on my couch, I read the tag sticking out from the cushions. "100% Italian leather.
Made from 100% real Italians."

It sounded funnier in my head when I wrote it. No offense to anyone. :oops:

Mis-dialed Psychic Hotline yesterday. Got the Sidekick Hotline instead. Man, that Gabby Hayes is hard to understand.

I should think so, since he's been dead longer than you've been alive! (probably) ;)
But, thumbs-up for the Gabby Hayes reference. :)
