meeting :: Keith :: 0
Scrine and I met in the oddest of places - the library - where I was searching for information on Depression era footwear, and this strange, metal bird, with a book on world domination tucked under one wing, was searching for a better way home; we hit it off immediatly and went for pie.

If I’m not mistaken, there was a time when hitchhiking didn’t seem quite so much like begging.
rodentia blues :: Keith :: 0
Two sentences were sitting at the bar, discussing meditation over glasses of scotch, when one says to the other, “You know, I agree with you about corporations destroying your will to live, but I’ll have you know, the result of working for yourself, and maybe this is also the out-and-out goal of the large corporation, is the destruction of your ability to live.”
condor :: steve :: 0

yogurt :: Imaginary Keith :: 0
After reading the Fungi or Bacteria Exclusion included in his company’s Commercial General Liability Coverage Policy,

Fungi or Bacteria, a. “Bodily injury” or “property damage” which would not have occurred, in whole or in part, but for the actual, alleged or threatened inhalation of, ingestion of, contact with, exposure to, existence of, or presence of, any “fungi” or bactrea on or within a building or structure, including its contents, regardless of whether any other cause, event, material or product contributed concurrently or in any sequence to such injury or damage

Imaginary Keith knew he should test the backbone of the policy, and immediately called up his agent, threatening to inhale an unusually large amount of peach yogurt.

printers :: Imaginary Keith :: 0
Sure the world almost ended with over-crowding and mass starvation, but that was before they enacted the Windows Related Printer Problem Act of 2034, which guaranteed the elimination of one human for each and every printer problem found to be Windows related - these days people everywhere are free to breed like rabbits and there’s still plenty of food to go around.
cooking right :: 'mouse :: 2

I can’t believe this shit that “Cooking Light” subjects me to every month, ‘Mouse moaned (while Bakerina nodded sagely), “The original recipe was an embarrassment of riches:  Two sticks of butter overloaded the shortbread crust; one cup of whipping cream made its way into the custard; and an additional cup of whipping cream plus 6 ounces of full-fat cream cheese weighed down the topping,” what kind of scrawny excuse for a human says something like that about good, healthy, heavenly old-fashioned rhubarb custard bars?
