    Strange happenings at writing forums

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by Chinspinner, Oct 20, 2011.

    Was gonna write it like a blood stained magpie stood on my shelf, but chose not to. Anyway, I was sat in my chair with one leg crossed over my other knee and a book in my hand, when suddenly a rattling at the window drew my reverie.
    "Why do you need to register twice?" Twice, thrice, three blind mice I rhymed and it was so well timed it could have been mimed, it was sublime, but there was no crime, I do not know why I need to register twice: by the way why do I need to register twice?

    What does miming have to do with well-timed rhymes? And what do bloody birds have to do with anything? Also, is it even possible to leave a stain on a bird? So many questions.

    Question 1: Nothing
    Question 2: Everything
    Question 3: It depends on the staining agent and the color of the bird... if you dip a white bird in bleach, it wont stain him. Until he dies from the bleach exposure and starts to rot and all of his feathers come out... but thats not really a matter of staining, its more a matter of decay, which in my opinion is different. At that point, the bird would likely be bloody which is why I answered question 2 the way that I did.

    How dare you insult our fellow creature, the elegant bird, with that disgusting simile. May you die of cholera sir.
