(ok, who else counts the syllables on their fingers like I do?)

He laughed evilly
Until with a start he realized
that Penny was dead.

(for you Dr. Horrible fans).

that Penny was dead
and the mad scientist laughed
He hated her cheer

(is there a way to do this without counting? )

I guess read together it really doesn't make sense, since he stopped laughing before. Oh well! I could do this all day long! Thanks Mean Mr. Mustard for getting it started!

"Too bad it's backwards,"
thought Obama, listening
to GOP jive.

In honor of the healthcare summit at Blair House.

The tourists in Roswell ask
