Careful or you'll hurt yourself.

Fashionably Feh

He came vaguely from eastern Europe.  The only book he'd seen depicting Americans was a 1920's excercise pamphlet.  He assumed most common US men wore mustaches and gelled hair, and figured he'd fit in damn well.

You Did What?!

I am absolutely appalled at what you are telling me.  Horrified and appalled but I am attempting to mask it.  Still though...I am horrified.

Come a Little Closer

Many men claimed to see her standing out on the widows walk waiting for her husband at sea.  There was something haunting in her beauty and it was always awkward when she turned up during a sailors' party.

Novelty Shirt

Sure he said it was a joke.  They all thought it was--just the same way he always joked about wearing his sunglasses at night (as an excuse to do so).  No one raised an eyebrow, until he brought home Kelli, proudly clutching a Bratz purse in one hand and his arm in the other.

Bend Over, Charlie.

His name was Charlie and he'd done nothing noteworthy in his whole life.  Yet because of his endlessly compliant and almost whipped nature, his name became a wussy insult across the world.  He was the first Bend Over Charlie.
