1. franchise logic

If you're a tourist
then a mixed media
installation which
explores the incidence
of chronic disease in
locally made souvenirs
is something special.

***
2. almost identical to the dulcimer

Plucked by a plectrum of
crow quill, aluminium, with

its vibration-dampening
characteristics, makes an

ideal material for creating a
fortified gun battery where

the 3rd, 5th, 6th & octave
intervals are dissonant.

3. In the clinic

Pixel domain matches
are defined by re-
fined gangue minerals
that must be sampled
at least twice to
effectively armor the
lounge-like environment
against the commercially
worthless but persistent
egg yolk flavor that
would otherwise prevail.

4. Android scuttlebutt

The mango harvest in Hungary imploded
        rather than being overthrown.

The movie has a hole in the bottom.

I've had my fill of plastic cups this summer.

Ignoring the presence of futanari has neither
        entertainment nor educational value.

The communist system is not getting any younger.

***
5. a lumbering monosyllabic behemoth

The first Yu-Gi-Oh!
video game for the

Nintendo DS features
two hours of hit songs

from governmental
bureaucracies under fire.

***
6. How philosophers spend the summer

Nietzsche's sideshow
is spectacular

but can only be
accessed through

the permanent link
in his mustache.




***
7. The brochure perpetuates stereotypes

Prime pheasant hunting land. No

singing, merely recitation in a


natural manner with no artifice.

The Yin to a shiny Rolex's Yang.

***
8. Honoring The Present & Soaring Into The Future.

I have put a
picture of a dish
of kimchi
on the wall &
obsess over it.


***
9. 
5-Speed Ultra Power

The soft organic cotton
baby bodysuit was

illustrated by hand

as an educational
aid for the clinician.

***
10. Avoid lifting the boat

The Deputy Governor has
a deficiency of magnesium
or potassium & is only

accepting bagged household
garbage & small homeless
dogs scheduled for death.
