Dan had the broad shoulders of a bodybuilder, in a glass case in his basement where nobody ever saw them, without buying a ticket

Dan could smell genius from a mile away, but since they could also smell him, he never got to meet any.

He had a face only a mother could love, unless it was his mother.

His grandma, like his grammar, was his constant violent enemy.

He was more ugly than mean, and meaner than he was ugly: a walking feedback loop that screeched against the eyes and souls of all who had to endure him.

When they found what was left of Charlie, only by deducing what the remains could not be, was the almost comedic truth made plain.

Robey Hates it when goods threads die.

Robey was was once known as the thread ressurector as well as the thread killer because at one time he seemed to have the last post on every thread that died

Robey would learn to become good friends with disappointment, very good friends, very very good friends (wink, wink, nudge nudge) if you know what I mean.

(PS Thanks. I love these)

Dan could see the future, could see what was coming, could see all of the answer's to life's questions, he just couldn't see the semi-truck barrelling down on him.

Dan thought that if he could give his headache a name, think of it with a personality, a history, as an individual he could communicate with, the headache would soon realize that it could do better than Dan and leave him.

Humor was his strong point, so he set out to prove himself totaly pointless.

He was so afraid of being exposed to potential ridicule that he would often balk at communicating in even the most anonymous of situations.

Norman had many hairs in his collection, his most treasured was the brown hair he garnished from the very first victim he had murdered.

Norman had planned on killing Reuben, adding his toe hairs to his collection, and extracting the magical properties contained within said hairs, but much to his surprise, Reuben was already dead, sprawled on the floor with a look of pure agony upon his face, his right hand clutched tightly upon what, curiously, appeared to be a heart made of solid gold.

Robey would laugh out loud at posted comments then get really quiet as he relized he was alone in the room and laughing to himself yet once again.

Alex was a friend through thick and thin, but was only a fairweather enemy.

Alex is pitied by everyone but Mr. T., who hasn't heard of him yet.

Alex was the kind of guy who took five flights of stairs to buy a chocolate bar. Or two.

Alex is convinced that his beard makes him sick. His beard believes otherwise.

Jerry had a problem, he couldn't keep a secret. Which wasn't that bad of a problem in itself, but Jerry loved secrets. He was always trying to hide the fact that he was a blabbermouth but even that secret was out. In fact I'm Jerry, and I couldn't keep a secret to save my life.

Jerry Spartacus (you didn't know that was his first name, did you) couldn't stop himself. When that Roman Legionaire asked, "Who is Spartacus" of course Jerry raised his hand.

The only secret Jerry knew was that he knew a secret. He forgot the original secret and told the secret about the secret to his online buddies on hatrack. Jerry is secretless.

Bob wished for time travel so that he could find out if dinosaurs were as tasty as they looked.

Bob was known as a hunter's hunter -- that's pretty much why he's locked up.

Dan caught a bad case of the flu, and kept it in his basement next to the case of Amontillado and the case of whooping cough that just wouldn't be quiet.

Ok, She was not the smartest girl in the room, even a room full of boys.

(actually happened to me. High School girl at a scouting event was happy they had a "bassoon thing player" refering to the bagpipes.)

Really?! I'm very interested in this, but I can't find anywhere that states when the policy changed.

真的嗎? 我對這個有多新出。 我找不到在那裏有這個改變。

Venturers is awesome. I was a Venturer (and am a girl) [Smile]

Although here in NZ, girls can be Scouts anyway at any age. Venturers here is just the name for that age group of Scouts. It goes Keas, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Rovers, for both boys and girls.

We have Girl Scouts as well as Boy Scouts; but they are separate organizations run under separate guidelines.

Venturers is open to boys and girls, but there are both Boy Scout and Girls Scout troops/classifications for the parallel ages.

Dan worked for the Hatrack railroad, fighting the losing battle to put wayward threads back on track.

Dan was the type of person who greatly appreciated really silly threads, especially in his tuxedo.

Dan thought that the "One line description of people" predated Twitter, but would make a good Twitter Game.

That's right, I'm putting these up on twitter--eventually.

Dan fought hard against the commercialization of St. Valentines Day, preferring the historical symbolism of mass murder, tommy-gun deaths in a dirty gas station, and an ode to organized crime.
