The problem with Non-sequiturs in humor is that they tend to degenerate into randomness quite quickly, and while being wacky and unpredictable is fun, it's not necessarily funny. A good non-sequitur must be subtly produced, not just randomly garbled together. It's important to keep a tender brain while doing so; simply simmer them gently for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the altitude, in a mixture of spices.

(There's probably also need to distinguish logical non-sequiturs, which are logical fallacies and are not really funny at all.)


That was a horrible non-sequitur!

Also, I have this cake.

On a related note, Mr. posted 6 posts before this one, I was thinking of hitching up the cat wagon, but then remembered the squirrels in the caboose of the 4chan train, and seeing as no mortal should ever have to face the horrors within that I just used a couple mongooses to power the cats and it all worked out surprisingly well.

...because I only had one spacesuit.





(Sidenote: who said a running series of non sequiturs was going to be funny? I'm totally in agreement otherwise, Alex².

Oh, and on a different board, we call this "Random Babbling" and simply use it as a 'miscellaneous' thread for minor issues, comments, etc. that aren't worth starting threads of their own.)

A driveway and walk covered with 60cm of snow, drifting to higher amounts in places, and coated with maybe 1/2cm of ice 'glazing' is NOT something most people desire to shovel.

I caught the dog, and the dog's done,
I caught the dog, and the dog's done!
Amidst the mists and fiercest frosts,
With barest wrists and stoutest boasts,
I thrust my fists against the posts,
And still insist I see the ghosts.

McMuffin, you are DISQUALIFIED for using BREAKFAST FOOD in your non sequiteur less than five posts after Citin's 'I'm eating a bagel'

By breakfast food, I mean the food you actually named, not the term 'breakfast food,' connected to 'I'm eating a bagel' by the fact that bagels are breakfast food, and...yeah. You get the point.

Sorry, and play again next time.

Current winner standings are the same.
