The ancient, ravaged sorceror flish was pleased with how the spell was developing, until his idiot assistant stuttered his lines and blinding yellow light punched through the cracks in the wall.

Nathan felt that to truly make an impression, one should say a line about the character of a person, rather than try too hard for a laugh, unless you said something about character and it was still pretty funny.

Nathan left a lasting impression, often better than the one he was shooting for.

Nathan was as deep as the ocean, even if people managed not to see past their own reflection.

The critic relished the chance to have at the film, as it was all he had left to keep him going.

When confronted with deep philosophical questions, Flish liked to belt out the themes to James Bond movies.

to Nick posting [Confused] it's an identity-free, "alls good" thread. enjoy it as such.

Even while surfing the tubes off Maui, Bob insisted on wearing his water-wings.

Morbo tended to let his emotions run away with him, which was cool as he often needed help fending off frisky hoboes.

Even though Scott was cool and intelligent, spell-checker seemed beyond him.

Scott was the type of person who would futilly hit the refresh button every thirty seconds, in hopes that some one else was just sitting on their computer writting things on the Hatrack Forum.

Morbo as well had worn a groove into his refresh button, but as he loved to talk to himself, it scarcely mattered to him if anybody was listening or not. (not true)

There once was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.

Herwig Schlunk bided his time in high school, seeming to ignore the jokes but actually writing them all down every night in a little notebook he treasured.

(Herwig was a grad student in mathematics at U of Chicago when I went there briefly. Either name is bad enough, but put them together and its a real train wreck. Cool guy, though) [Big Grin]

Bob held out high hopes of one day meeting his maternal aunt in a dark alley and giving her an anonymous note about what a mean person she is, or maybe whispering this to her after she fell into a coma.

(I went to school with kids named "Lansing Pillsbury" and "Bud Weiser" -- wonder what his mom and dad were doing when he was conceived...)

Morbo had always wanted to join the circus, but when the Ringmaster led him into the elephants' cage and told him to get crackin', he bailed like a French soldier with no wine.
