He pressed his hand against his chest. It was growing in him, feeding on him, but he still had time.

AstroKnothead

Thinking with his genitalia had gotten Crispin Snatscatcher in trouble many a time. Though none of his planetary invasions had proven fatal thus far, most of the habitable worlds in the galaxy were teeming with unviable mutants that were the results of his, shall we say, alien encounters.

Were They Strong?

Yes, I knew Anna quite well, and I can tell you before you even ask that she definitely wrote the six cello suites in 1721 because Bach told me so; and he also said that she could out-write him on any stringed instrument… “NO question!”, he would yell it out.

No I didn’t know her well… no one did actually, but I know she was 23 when she died.

Grilled Sleaze Sandwich
