[Editor’s note: I was always a reluctant subscriber to the “new quips at the top” system for PUNY posts but since the rest of the world seemed compelled to stack them this way, I eventually fell in line. In the case of Limerick story threads, I sometimes still will go back and re-stack them for better presentation. In the case of these free association threads, (a.k.a. “Double Petunias) it also makes far more sense to present them in a top to bottom format, thus I have reworked this current one below. 


Since I was forced to go back in and attempt a “repair” of this quickly splintered exercise, I’m hereby offering my own additions to both Doug’s and Cyn’s branch, effectively creating parallel threads. If the next player would like to attempt to bring these back together in some efficient and humorous way, I’d be satisfied to play on just a single trail. Otherwise, feel free to add to either or both and we’ll see what happens.]


ROGUE RIDDLE 1000 has been locked and loaded since last Sunday, when Gary told me I was the winner. It will be unleashed in the pre-dawn hours of tomorrow.

A loud noise can be very scary




Cyn – who’s next




[Gary continuing Cyn’s branch]


It’s Scary who started this game and now it’ll be up to him to repair it.


“Reparrot” is what you may need to do when you have a broken cockatiel.


“Cockateal” is a fairly normal condition for the Incredible Hulk.


“Ink readable Hallock” might be a good title for my autobiography.
