I got an idea for a li'l game:

Respond to this post with a sentence fragment. Make up a full sentence, randomly chop a bit out of the middle... and I will attempt to guess what the complete sentence was. You can chop it anywhere; even in the middle of a word!

(Disclaimer: I'm leaving town on Monday, so any comments posted before I go to bed Sunday night will not be responded to for about a week, if at all.)

"As I passed the futuristic house and wondered what physics genius had designed the door, imagine my surprise when I was met by none other than the famous Charles Darwin, who informed me that it had been designed by no one, but evolved by a series of metarchitecturocosmophysical properties that mere humans couldn't begin to understand, although fortunately I was a cat."

Bobbi Jo had a bouffant beehive hairdo that was literally a beehive as was self-evident, that all got messed up with honey and larvae, and that made the McAllisters and O'Haras down the street all give her the stink-eye every time she went down the market.

I'd be much obliged if you'd refer your friend Edmond to this post with a sentimental letter -- preferably one daubed with perfume and sealed with a kiss.

Sadly, Edmond reacted in less than a second to this post with a sense of deep loathing and malapropism.

"Although she tried to entice me into normal human sexual relations by swinging her hips, I did it bacterium-style."

I hoped you'd like it! Otherwise I might have to flagella myself.

He thought maybe Gene Ray, cubic, had stolen it, but before he managed to ring timecube.com, he found his brainteaser book under the sofa.

Pizza delivery takes even longer than transforming electrical appliances into marine mammals when there's fighting going on, which is why in no less than twice as much battle time as it takes to seal a lightbulb, he was given his order of deep-dish pepperoni and calzone.

I was sure the tiny demons who had taken over the world were from the Underworld, despite the headline that read, "Administrator living in shiv slit denied was chthonian".

Close, indeed. But I would never have given you headlinese in a game like this; it just wouldn't be quite sporting. The sentence I had in mind was:

The deity that the skeptic whose throat the fanatic with the shiv slit denied was chthonic.

Though I admire the elaborate grammar in your sentence; it's similar to the title of my LJ friends page, "Things people KT likes said".

Here's a harder one, unless you leave your creativity at the door:

Thanks! It just popped into my head.

We sailed over naughted-and-crossed oceans of timberland and forests of saltwater looking for the Lost Treasure of Darth Blackbeard, the Scourge of the Alpha Atlantic.

The giant snail trapped the guard dog and the security guards around the dog knee-deep in something sticky and the cat looted the pet food store; what a fiendish pair of criminals they were!
