The Bus crashed into his love.

Scott Sigler finished the last page.

A glorious, if short, final flight.

The armour deflected the incoming laser.

The prisoner was weak, too bad.

Terrorist suspect escapes from police custard.

"What's this button for?", he asked
And God said "Nah, screw it"

Ha ha ha.  I love it.  How about:

Taken in part.  Machine reconstitutes man.

We came, we saw.  Logger orgy.

Valentine's Eve.  Walmart's bare shelves ransacked.

J.R. DeRego: Wolverine's Angst-ridden son.

Cybernetic dolphin.  New Kingdom of EEEEEEE.

The day the cheeseburger bit back.

Plant, taking exception to fertilizer, spits.

I was inspired by the Wired article to put two in my webcomic:

"Specifically, he'd asked for her brains."

"Sarah Jane, fetch my sonic screwdriver."
