“Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock,” Robert said, standing across the table from the Suspect. “Do you hear that?” He pointed to a bare spot on the wall.

10/12/2005 anonymous: “Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock,” Robert the Seaman said, standing across the galley from the Mutineer. “Arrr, do you hear that?” He pointed his wooden leg to a bare spot on the wall. How nice that wall would look with a mosaic clock he thought. But the Captain never asked him how he’d like the whaling ship decorated; now did he.
10/12/2005 Will Disney (5): Nicely done!
10/12/2005 Will Disney: maybe it would have been funnier if i had said 'nicely done' and given a 1/2 star? but also, maybe it would have been less "true"?
10/12/2005 Litcube (4): It is possible, Will Disney. This short is kind of funny, almost. Perhaps a little more than almost.
10/12/2005 Mr. Pony (3): Punctuation! Using moderately proper punctuation does not make one look smart, but it does make one look not dumb! Otherwise okay. Pony three!
10/12/2005 Streifenbeuteldachs (4): Puncutation aside it was a real galumpher.
