Frankenstein’s monster could never get a date.  Every time he went to ask a girl out, he just fell apart. 


The Incubus had fallen in love with one of the three Graeae sisters, but he couldn’t tell witch.


Unknown to most, Medusa had a short career in Hollywood.  She earned a bad reputation early on, Clashing with Titan producers, and never seemed to make enough money because she always worked for scale.

I can't get "Zombies are dead boring" out of my terminally softened brain.

PP??: Some Things Don't Wash Off- This one left its mark right on my heart.

Just a reminder, submissions are accepted until midnight, server time on Jan 23rd.  Then Alasdair gets to narrow it down to 3.  A little undead birdie told me that Al is not immune to bribes...

The punny thing is, I ghastly over estimated the number of submissions this would generate.  I thought this was something people would really sink their teeth into.

And not longer after that, I turned up and said 'Oi! Zathras!  Tell 'em I'm not immune to bribes!  No, BRIBES!...BRIBES!...BRIBES!...The things that you give people when you want them to do stuff for you!  BE SUBTLE TOO!'

I'm not sure about Ep. 125: Scavenger but can't really explain why. Something about it is just picking at my brain.

We're down to the last 36 hours and 12 minutes or so for submissions.

Gosh, I wonder if I have time to go to a job interview first.

Ok, I'm just closing things down now.  I'm online for now and might not be later.  Good luck, gentlemen and may God have mercy on your souls.

Alasdair put the poll up, it's at the top of this thread. 

Woot!  One of my 3 thousand submissions made the cut.

I personally thought my Killing Jars pun was my best.   ;D 

I've decided that if we get 25 votes or more to award a prize to both first and second place.

I would've gotten more votes if the forums hadn't been down all weekend.

Never got a chance to get my relatives signed up to vote for me.   ;D

Congrats Kevin.

Thanks.  Mom always said I was punny. 

Yeah, what happened to the forums this weekend.  I also couldn't pull up pseudopod.

Congratulations everyone:)  I actually caught myself, earlier, looking at some of the stuff on the slate and wondering what you'll come up with for the next or next but one Zarga...
