"Ah, to hell with it! The best remedy for your own misery is to inflict it on someone else. The pecking order. Kicking the cat. Kicking the Mudcat - there's an idea.!
"I'll make them make it up to me for wasting my time reading their manic threads by challenging them to write short stories. And I'll make it so insidious that they'll still be caught up in the same thread until...I know, how about 2005! Yeah! Or even 2010!** And to make it worse, when they think they can finally get away from this thread I'll give them another challenge to write a story of 100 words, no more and no less.
"Nah, it'll never work. They're not that gullible, are they? Are they?"
**Or 2008 at least!
Can't help it. The 100 word challenge always reminds me of this thread.
