Birds screech in the sullen sky. I search the unbroken walls of cloud. No hawk or kestrel can pierce this alabaster haze.

I pulled The Sword from The Stone! I would be king!

The aliens said that humanity is too violent to join the Federation. Of course we couldn't let an insult like that stand.

I died 50 years ago and have haunted my killer ever since. I think that banana peel is finally starting to get the message.

The first working bullshit detector was outlawed as a threat to the public good. Of course we all knew that was bullshit.

I finally decided to cook rabbit yesterday. The smell of burning hare still wafts throughout my house.

That's not bunny! :P

Seriously, it is too short to be a twabble.

Ah, must have accidently counted the spaces. By the way, the article I'm working on goes live in a couple days. It's shaping up pretty well

It was news when geneticists reverted chicken beaks to dinosaur jaws. Continued research made it into emergency news.

Gardening Season!

My neighbor's back yard was filled with Irises. That explained his phone book collection. It's not that popular a name.

Better, but a twabble is exactly 100 non-space characters.
Check it using our handy "sizing" tool.

Also, try very hard to use/keep proper punctuation.

13 years ago, my daughter was fun. A lot of fun. All night. But 9 months later, she was born. It's been down hill ever since.

I wouldn't eat Soylent Green. It's nasty stuff. The meat has way too many hormones and preservatives in it to be healthy.
