Capriccio

 

 

 

Fungi are neither

plant nor animal.

 

They tendered

cash incentives.

 

We have opted

for otosis.

 

This could ruin

his afternoon.

 

 

 

She's like a bowl

of turkey gumbo.

 

I just want to see

him think it.

 

You decide to

leave the palace.

 

Let it snow.

Let it snow.
