A home for the bits and pieces of my mind.

Special note of thanks to Micaela Lattanzio, whose work can be viewed at

There once was a show Bewitched
whose star was a pretty witch
she became an actress
to eased her distress
caused by a nose with an incurable twitch

Two fireflies go to a tavern.  They order Red Bull.
The barfly serves the drinks and says, "because it give you wings!"
The lady firefly smiles and says, "no silly, because it lights us up."

"Ouch," said the blind man as he bumped his head on the tree trunk. He took one step to the left and two steps forward.

The wand was four feet long.
"What happened?" asked the Wand Maker.
"I was telling my marlin fishing story when the wand began growing," replied the Wizard.
"Hmmm, odd magic indeed,” said the Wand Maker, consulting his Compendium. “Lore declares the Core came from a creature called Pinocchio."

Ho-Ro's sleepy head fell on the transporter console. Animals from the Aswan Zoo appeared three seconds later in a biological jumble. A creature, half lion half eagle, arose. To hide his mistake, Ho-Ro transported the Gryphon back three thousand years to Ancient Egypt, thus a myth was born.

A Wolf met a one-armed man. “What happened to your arm?”
“A sharknado bit it off. The impudent sharknado told me it was tasty.”
“Terrible. How is your other arm?”
The man showed his arm. The Wolf bit it off.
The Wolf nodded, “the sharknado was right.”

Father Robert was a secret of the Vatican, a priest gifted with magic.  For a priest, he was a superstitious man.  Well, who would not be if their work was battling demons.  Father Robert always began his assignments with, "bring forth the Holy Wand."

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Gone Shopping

Dracula escorted his newly created undead aide into the store.

"...and you need to sleep in the daytime," he explained.

"But what are we doing here in Sleepy's Mattress store?" asked his aide. "I thought we slept in coffins."

"We are modern now," replied Dracula. "We use a mattress like anyone else. I tell you, after two hundred years of sleeping on rock and dirt, this is a joy. So much more comfortable and you don't have to haul it around from place to place."

"Amazing," said the aide.

"For a newbie like you, maybe you want to go traditional. Sleepy's has a Posturedic that will fit inside a coffin."

"What do you use?" asked the aide.

"I have a sleep-number bed. I love it. Mrs. Dracula can toss and turn and I don't feel it on my side."

"Now that you mention the ladies, I think I will skip the coffin. A moo…

Girl Fantasy

by The Urban Blabbermouth
I am binge watching Lost Girl on Netflix.  It's a fantasy television show where the main character is a succubus.  A succubus is a demon who feeds on sexual energy.  You can imagine, with a premise like that, why this show was on TV for five years or so.  It's a light show, not much heavy drama or violence, but then I have only watched three episodes.

There are issues with Lost Girl.   Let's start with the obvious.  The succubus is a woman, not a man.  If the demon were a man, we would be uninterested in the show.  As we all know, men have that famous second brain that controls them.  It's just men being men to like, want, and actively pursue sex.  That's boring. 

There is a another reason that the succubus is a woman.  This implies that women who like, want, and actively pursues sex can only be demons.   I've got news for you, women have that second brain too.  It's just tiny compared to men's.  Maybe that's why …
