After years in zero gravity when legs became less important to move from here to there everyone started farting around.

His remains were placed with others of their kind, in The Great Incinerator. He was deemed unfit for human consumption.

:P
So they became ass-tronauts?
When they entered a room they were said to "butt in"?
Collisions happened when someone was "boweled over"?
"It's a gas, man!"
And, of course, "Flame out" could have a whole new meaning.
Finally, none of this would work without the right kind of underwear: "Flighty whities"
:mrgreen:

Metamorphosis

Post by Algernon Sydney is Dead » Mon May 25, 2015 12:41 am

The first line of Metamorphosis (by some old dead dude called "Kafka") makes a pretty good twabble:

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.”

Coincidence? Surely not.

"Ass-tronauts" Great rejoinders. Could have made a drabble out of it.

Holding his mask, Erik looked over the city. They had taken his family with guns. He'd take their freedom with his fists.

They put fifty monkeys in a room with a typewriter and waited. And so the monkeys dramatized the painful demise in print.

As I held my bulging belly she fumed "You should have just used toilet paper; the package even says "Magic Eraser" on it!"

My blade is red, the heart cut free. The goddess is not pleased. "Are you going to finish pitting those cherries or what?"

Took me a bit to get this one (I think).
Is someone in urgent need of a catheter and worse? :shock: :)

Seemed like a good idea at the time

Okay, so putting the goldfish in the DNA Enhancer wasn’t the brightest thing I ever did. But he’s much happier as a T-Rex.

Yeah, the alternative version mentioned waiting for surgery instead of a bulging belly. Maybe that would make more sense?

Nah. The first version's better, IMO, more disturbing.
Nothing wrong with making us readers think for our squick. Makes the groans that much louder. ;)

That's a fun concept but, alas, it is too short to be a twabble and the punctuation is off.

Perhaps? :
