Rules:
1.)Don't put your signature on the bottom of the post.
2.) Thats it.

But I was just trying to explain to my brimstone-breath friend here the difference between heads and tails. Hey, as long as you're here, can you show him your...

"HEY!" little coppery Lincoln yells, to which the woman drops him back on the table.
"I'm so sorry Lincoln. I thought you wanted to ride around in my pockets again."
"Well yeah- who wouldn't? Anycoin who wouldn't want to ride next to those . . .

I think that the bomb may actually be a mind-control device from KAOS....no-no-no-not them, I mean from Dr. Smith -"Warning. Warning. Warning, Will Robinson! Alien invaders are approaching." See what I mean. I cannot even carry on a conversation. I start breaking out into old T.V. show bits. It is radiating a mind-altering sound wave. And that's a fact. "Just the facts, ma'am, just the facts." Oh, there it goes again.

...but I stopped abruptly as I realized no one else was singing along. People just don't sing anymore. The waitress turned a deep shade of crimson, grabbed a piece of banana cream pie, and headed for the old couple in the corner. The dragon slithered behind the counter to brown the egg white topping for the lemon merangue pie. I went back to flip more burgers. The door opened. In walked...

A six-foot leather coin purse with a big brass snap on his head and an attitude in his eyes. "Hey, Lincoln!" he shouted at the coin, now flipping himself all over the table of the couple in the corner. "Flip your tail (and your head) outta here! I told you about this place, didn't I?" He turned toward the elderly gentleman in the corner and asked.....

...that little guy with the pointy ears and the green suit come from - over there - sneeking out the back door?!?!?!?!?!?
We all rushed to the door, just in time to see the little guy disappear around the corner, along with what seemed to be a rather large man in a crushed red velvet jacket and pants with shiny black boots.
