Spaceship Effect

I found Jim’s entry a little late but as they say – better late than never!

A Unique Title For Me

It looks like something out of a classic sci-fi film, but this is actually somebody’s house made to resemble a flying saucer that is hovering over the Earth’s surface in this Alpine village.  It is nothing more than an optical illusion, but it must be serene living up here.  This was achieved using an architectural concept known as the forced perspective.  This technique manipulates our brains by employing a series of small adjustments that alter our depth perception making a space look larger, or smaller, or farther, or closer than they really are.  Its curved design and oval windows on all sides creates this spaceship effect, because of the decorative windows that look like mirrors from the outside which are positioned to reflect whatever is outside.

Twiglet #300: Dogs in Jackets

Join in here

dogs in jackets

Dogs don’t like jackets!

Have you ever seen one?
A doggy in a coat?
Like water in the ocean
Like buoys on a boat
They wear them in the winter
They wear them in the fall
They wear them made of denim
Those dogs will wear them all!
The arms are a bit shorter
The tail is different too
There isn’t a long zipper
They wouldn’t have a clue
It isn’t like they want them
or bark until its on
Its just what owners do to them
those coats they’re forced to don.
So if you get too see them
dogs in jackets out about
Tell them that they are special pups
and rub them on the snout.

Advertising Sells

Di puts a little twist on why this woman is at the bar!!


What’s she doin’ here?
We don’t sell sex.
I know that dummy!
Then what’s she doin’ here?
She’s the key to our fortune.
You’re joking, right? How is SHE going to make us rich?
She’s pretty, yeah?
I s’pose so.
She’s not one of us is she.
No, but I don’t see how that’s going to work.
Because she’s not one of us, she’s got brains, see?
No. I can’t see her brains! Sheesh. You’ve lost it.
No I haven’t. If punters see that she’s not brain dead, they’ll automatically assume it’s because she has been partaking in the brains we have on offer.
I’ve got another idea. How about we open a strip bar and serve cocktails………….

This is a picture of a woman dressed provocatively standing in front of a bar where the bartenders are zombies and they are advertising they serve brains.

Considered a Delicacy

Jim has given us a gross drink recipe idea!

A Unique Title For Me

Alisha had heard nothing but good things about consuming brains, although she was a bit disgusted by the idea.  She had eaten livers and kidneys before, so Alisha didn’t think that this was going to be all that different for her.  She had hoped to try brains in a taco or a quesadilla, but that Mexican food truck was closed down by the Board of Health.  The zombie bar was the only place in town that was serving brains, and she figured that with the brains being mixed into an alcoholic concoction, that they might go down much smoother.  Brains are more liquid than solid, so drinking them made more sense than eating them.  She didn’t really like the undead, but the drink was delicious being made into a creamy consistency, and as long as the zombies weren’t trying to eat her brains, she figured that she would order another. …
