Published 4 years ago

There are more ways to have fun with words than just writing overly wordy sci-fi epics. How about illustrating their meanings? Or how about interpreting phrases a little too literally?

Writes like a mad dervish, rolls to dodge responsibility, might have bitten the Moon once.
