I think Robert is trying to send us a message. If that is indeed Robert.

I think anyone capable of creating a long story can create a long story with those words. The easiest way is "At the corner there was a lunatic, shouting: 'ICE SCREAM™! Catheter, Mauve, Bed!'" and then just go on with the story.

There once was a man that came up with a new horror-themed dessert called "Ice Scream!". Unfortunately the ingredient he used for colouring Malicious Mauve had some unfortunate side-effects, resulting in all his taste-testers being confined to bed with catheters fitted. The resulting law-suits bankrupted the company which is why you've never seen that particular brand on the shelves of shops.

How's that?

P.S. @rlpw. If your aim was a haiku then I'd say you did it right.

Thank you. I thought I might have missed a nuance of the form.

Well, I'm not aware of any of the classic ones using the word "squat" in that sense but otherwise.

Alternative version

Howard Phillips was a sceptic, determined to prove the superstitious wrong. When he came across stories of the Mountains of Madness, an area of the frozen north from which few had returned, it seemed an ideal subject for him. Gathering like-minded individuals, he set out to show that the "Ice Scream", a hideous sound emanating from that locale rumoured to drove men mad, was naught but hysteria. As his expedition lay in bed in their first night at camp, an unearthly mauve glow suffused the area. Sure that one of his rivals was seeking to discredit him, Phillips set out alone in the dead of night to trace the source of the glow. No-one knows what happened to him that night, but he was found by his team-mates the next morning, stiff with catatonia and bearing an expression of absolute terror. He now spends his days being fed by a tube with his wastes removed by a catheter.

I just accidently snorted Coke...(No joke). It wasn't real Coke (just pills ground down) and I was doing it for a scene in a movie, but still...it burned.

Muahahaha!

It wasn't a real movie, just something me and three other people put together for a presentation for my Abnormal Psychology class. We decided to do a skit, and I was the antisocial personality disorder case. If he gets it done and posts it on Youtube, I'll give you a link.

That'd be cool! I'd like to see you sniff Coke


In other news: tomorrow I will start with The Whispered World.

Oh, I thought you snorted the drink, you know, Coca-Cola. I thought you had a full glass when you suddenly got like a hickup (or whatever that's in English) and snorted it in.

Kinda like milk comes out when you laugh hard enough. Even if you're not even drinking milk

You know, when I was a kid some of the other kids used to think they were cool and snorted this salmiac powder sometimes. Man, how stupid is that... And it didn't seem that stupid when I was a kid, though thank goodness I wasn't one doing it.

It ain't no joke, I'd like to buy the world a toke, and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.
