Nuthsells, dollhouses of the damned. Before CSI, we had crime scene doll houses to help train investigators. Cool history. (Grokked from Phiala)
Operation Track Santa is back up and operating. We'll get the bastard this year. If not, our plan to flood him out by removing the ice under his secret layer will be complete in about 10 years. Either way, Kringle will bite the big one. This is the true war on Christmas. (Grokked from Absolute Write)
Wait a sec, Herman Cain is running an ad about how we should elect him as "America's CEO" so he can create jobs. Hey, isn't he running for the nomination of the party that believes Government can't create jobs? Shark is jumped. Oh, and the "apologize for America" thing has been well debunked. Hey, conservatives, could we have some options from people who aren't into conspiracy theories and maybe have been paying attention for the last four years?
Okay, Dear News Outlets, because a crime is committed and then tweeted doesn't mean the story is about twitter and who is following what. It's that a felony occurred and should be prosecuted.

Not that it was a tweet.

Double dip tweet
@ChuckWendig: Writer tip: find that number one excuse you parade about like an ugly pony, the one that keeps you from writing. Then fucking burn it alive.
