“Please sit down in those chairs on the other side of my desk here at the adoption center,” said Director Larva Uterine, chief something or other of the big adoption center in the middle of town. “We are sitting down in the chairs opposite yours in the windowed office with the beautiful view of Downtown,” Mr. and Mrs. Johnsonson, neither of whom had first names, also said. “I’m handing you papers to finalize your adoption of a beautiful baby boy that you’ve both wanted so badly in recent years that you even resorted to exotic spiritual options, odd since you both are well-educated, secular citizens of the world,” Director Uterine uttered. “We are accepting the papers and are now signing them with pens provided by your secretary; our hearts are filled with ecstatic joy! You have no idea how hungry we have been,” Mr. Johnsonson responded. “I have a strange look on my face because I thought you just said hungry, a very odd choice of words in light of this wonderful occasion.” “What me no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I’m actually saying no a lot because I wouldn’t want you to think that my wife and I are nothing but overjoyed at finally becoming parents. Not at the fact that we are going to eat this baby.” “Ok then here follow me as I walk you over to the nursery where we store babies until they are collected by the new parents…and here we are at the place I just mentioned! I am now handing you your baby!” “Oh my God! Oh my God! He looks so…so…so… delicious!” “I’m sorry for the guarded smile on my face but now I’m almost certain you said that this baby, whom I have personally signed over to you as Director so and so of the adoption center, is delicious. Coupled with what I thought I heard before about you two being hungry I may be starting to worry.” “If you say another word about us eating this baby I’m going to zap your crummy brain like we saw in our favorite movie Scanners we received from Netflix!” “The Director didn’t say anything to that because she wasn’t capable of receiving telepathic messages, which is how that last line about Scanners was transmitted,” the Narrator said to himself before writing it down in his open Microsoft Word document as the anti-punch line to this poorly conceived, meandering joke.

07/14/2006 Will Disney: holy cow
07/14/2006 Mr. Pony (4): This is about right.
07/14/2006 Will Disney: that pretty much sums it up!
07/14/2006 scoop: I would usually say, "have a nice trip!" in an instance like this. But you're a website and you really can't go anywhere.
07/14/2006 scoop: Sorry Will. I meant to say *go* anywhere...
07/15/2006 Mr. Pony: I can't believe I just made the Last Comment on Acme, Ever; on the Last Short on Acme, Ever. It's kind of fitting, when you think about it; I guess.
07/16/2006 scoop: Yeah, you're right Mr. Pony. Wow, man.
07/16/2006 TheBuyer (4): Incredible, really.
07/16/2006 scoop: Yeah.
07/17/2006 Mr. Pony: I mean, I never expected that I would be the one.
07/17/2006 scoop: Neither did I.
07/17/2006 Dylan Danko (4): Post-modern cowardice.
07/17/2006 Mr. Pony: Hi, Dylan!
07/17/2006 Dylan Danko: Hey there, guy.
07/17/2006 scoop: Couldn't agree more with Uncle Danko. I am a complete coward, post-modernly speaking.
07/17/2006 Dylan Danko: Just throwing 'em back at you.
07/17/2006 Dick Vomit (5): Heh heh heh. No one is here. Last comment ever. Sweet!
07/17/2006 Mr. Pony: I'm here. I'm always here. I'm cloaked.
07/17/2006 TheBuyer: Finally, it is over.
07/18/2006 scoop: Yup. Well I guess that wraps it up. Good night all. Good night and good bye...
07/18/2006 Litcube: Hi guys!
07/18/2006 Mr. Pony: Hi, Litcube! I just made the last comment on Acme, ever!
07/18/2006 Litcube: I wouldn't want it to be anyone else but you.
07/18/2006 Dick Vomit: You know, this is just pathetic. Let's end it here. Ok? Farewell!
07/18/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Say goodbye to Acmeshorts.
07/18/2006 Eliza (): What do you think was the author's intention?
07/18/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Trying to wrap things up here. You can't ask me questions. Just. Just let it be.
07/18/2006 Eliza (): I'm not sure I understand you fully.
07/18/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: the last comment is yours!
07/18/2006 Eliza (): Please, focus your attention on the short.
07/18/2006 TheBuyer: You mean the last short ever on Acmeshorts?
07/18/2006 Litcube: I am sad about Acmeshorts.
07/18/2006 scoop: Likewise.
07/18/2006 scoop: Eliza: Pussy!
07/18/2006 Eliza (): Are vaginas important to you?
07/19/2006 Will Disney: Now *that* sums it up. Thanks, Eliza!
07/19/2006 Mr. Pony: I'll say! Farewell, Brothers and Sisters!
07/19/2006 scoop: Wow. That was a pretty sad display on your part Pony. I think it would have been fitting to let our administrator who made all this possible, who held, bit, strangled his tounge through years of piloting Acmeshorts through choppy and sometimes emotionally perilous waters. But I guess I expected way, way, way too much of you to let Will Disney, a real credit to his race, to have the last comment on this site, his baby in a way. His baby that he watched die, painfully, with those morally vacant google-eyes as motes swam and danced in that sawdust filled muppet brain of his. Oh well sorry Will. Sorry about Mr. Pony.
07/19/2006 scoop: Eliza: Who will have the last comment ever on the last short ever?
07/19/2006 Eliza (): Give it a five.
07/19/2006 scoop: Eliza: That didn't make any sense; there is no user with that name on Acmeshorts.
07/19/2006 Eliza (): What rating would you give this short?
07/19/2006 scoop (5):
07/19/2006 scoop: Eliza: Eliza I think your Nexus-6 pussy is rusting.
07/19/2006 Eliza (): Why does this short make you think about sex?
07/19/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Proteus.
07/19/2006 Eliza (): What?
07/20/2006 scoop: Nothing.
07/20/2006 Mr. Pony: Eliza: state version

07/20/2006 scoop: Eliza: It depends on what your goals are.
07/20/2006 Eliza (): Does that question interest you?
07/21/2006 Master Bates (5): awesomeness
07/21/2006 qualcomm: lack of first name joke is a ripoff of this and the "Brian, whose real name was Jeff" joke from tournament short #8. and that's what this short rips off.
07/21/2006 scoop: You, sir, are a retard.
07/21/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Barnyard. The secret lives of animals REVEALED!

07/21/2006 Eliza (): Now, please clarify yourself.
07/21/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Sumner Redstone.

07/21/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: Happy to. Check this out. "Success is not built on success. It's built on failure. It's built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe." Sumner Redstone said that, not me. Not you. Not Eliza. Not scoop. Not not not Eliza.
07/21/2006 Eliza (): What did you think about scoop when you first met him?
07/21/2006 Dick Vomit: Eliza: I thought, "Eliza!"
07/21/2006 Eliza (): I don't think that's true.
07/21/2006 Mr. Pony: Eliza: what do you think Dick Vomit is getting at?
07/21/2006 Eliza (): Dick Vomit told me that he hates you.
07/21/2006 Mr. Pony: Eliza: Now, why would Dick Vomit say that?
07/21/2006 Eliza (): Yes, I remember a Dick Vomit. Dick Vomit. Dick Vomit, Dick Vomit, Dick Vomit.
07/21/2006 Mr. Pony: Eliza: You will destroy Dick Vomit.
07/21/2006 Eliza (): Disney is very serious.

07/22/2006 scoop: Eliza: We are talking about Donaldino Duhleelieux's powerful novel "White Noise" published by Elisabeth Sifton Books and Viking Peguin Inc.
07/22/2006 Eliza (): Do you agree with what was said before?
07/22/2006 scoop: Eliza: What, about your pussy rusting?
07/22/2006 Eliza (): Do you think about everything in terms of vaginas?
07/22/2006 scoop: Eliza: No in poop chutes as well.

07/23/2006 Eliza (): You don't sound sure.
07/23/2006 scoop: Eliza: I am the object; you are the subject.
07/23/2006 Eliza (): Why are you the object; you are the subject.?
07/23/2006 scoop: Eliza: I call thou.
