…………Thetica Zorg courts a coiffed synoglyph, cum
argot, first in line at the ingénue boutique for surplus
grammatology. Charmed, for sure, but we’ve met.
Automation by divorcing the exergue from the tryst
is subaltern. We’re focused on a ribbed mouth cavity
…………and take credit for בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם,
וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ. Tune the spar. If (conn->state != SC_CLOSED
&& (fake_time – conn->last_recv) > timeout). Drone
…………warfare aims for rogue monomania. The Imps
choose jellyfish tazers, gelatinous polyp paralyzing
muscular sacks. We are the Old English wē, the Old
High German wir and Sanskrit vayam. Take that brut
…………archi-I, nominative plural with obscene chemical
glands. We demur to our godbot eπi = −1 in spandex
and latex catsuits. Thetica Zorg’s sui generis is a gigolo.
He spurts succub(āre) on pigmy hautboys and yells “free
hell ticks!” Casing explosive and shrapnel on contact.
Please leak the jaw’s hylè. Fuck realität. Can you spare
…………de nugis curialium? Urgency in meltwater.
Opposite conclusions include dissoi logoi, gentility, noise
and l’immaginazione senza fili. Saran dispensers are sold
…………at the kiosk. Quick, call cavaletto supplejacks.
Define cyborganic parasitism. Thetica’s synoglyph
broaches her rat in its calcite shell. As for heaven,
the kingdom is a Corpus Hypercubus. Carbofiliaments
replace fingertips, ready for strangulations.
