I dressed to the nines watching my Ps & Qs when the board lit up from my six. I did a smooth 180 put the eyeballs on the target, a sweet sweet 36-24-36 (Classical numbers), coke bo ttle from before the Cola Wars. But when you get a closer look you realize it is the Maltese Flacon disguised as a prewar coke bottle. Nostalgia was never the answer after all. You hook your hands behind your head and lean back in your chair to think. Finally you decide to hawk the Flacon as it were. The highest bidder buys the black bird-bottle for 562 bit-coin, but you don't know how many $$ that is, so you stand up, shove your hands in your pockets & pace behind the desk.

He prepared the pamplets and arsenic-laced Kool-Aid and changed into his white gown. He counted down the seconds until the rest of his brothers and sisters would arrive. But they never did. Three hours later, as the arsenic-laced Kool-Aid began to discolor and give off a foul odor, a telegram came. "As if!- Love, your former congregation" it read. The arsenic laced Koolaid was donated to the rats, who dropped like flies. Mayor Phlemn was able to focus on the potholes and save his chances of reeksction

Woab - Your humor never fails me; it jiggles my jello and rarely fails to get a couple of Knarf, Knarfs! out of Pinky.

Dhanthecat - Eeep! (I guess I should have expected rodent mayhem from a cat, Knarf!)

I added my line the day the last one ended, I think.
