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.

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."

He pressed the button... game over.

The sun died. The end.

He played with glue. Got stuck.

What the hell?  This isn't Jello!

That activates the robot! Don't touch!

I shouldn't have eaten those nanites.

These pants have too many legs. 

That deactivates the robot! Don't touch!

She turned on her left side. (oldie, but it happens to be six words)

"Infinite wishes!" *POOF* We've traded places...



"Regrets? Only getting caught cloning her."



He extended his dripping tentacle. "Deal?"



Adam smirked. "The apple? Just dessert."



Gone. I shoot up with memories.
