Fortunately the progress of evolution is magically speeded up by an explosion in one of those Radioactive Factories that Cause Superpowers and Stuff, causing iguana gnomes to spring into existance in less than a week

unfortunately, the old, strange gods of cookie rain turned out to be very old and strange, and kept asking for sacrifices of chocolate chips and for their worshipers to speak up, please, and pass the reading glasses.

The tyrannosaurus rex was called the tyrannosaurus regina, which is indeed a better name for a dinosaur. unfortunately, this deeply offended Regina, a somewhat fierce paleontologist who assumed it was named after her. In her annoyedness, she had it renamed the tyrannosaurus Wuffles, after the curator's very annoying small dog, which is a terrible name for a dinosaur.

I wish that I felt resolute and full of energy when I woke up in the morning, as opposed to right before I'm ready to go to sleep.

Fortunately, silly string is a phenomenon mostly limited to earth- so on most planets, the Mushroom's demands of TAKE ME TO YOUR SILLY STRING resulted in confused silence, which the Mushroom soon began to find very embarrasing

It's all calculated using complex algorithms based on the ratio of
old people+horse brasses+pints:tourists+hipster decor+cake mysteriously described as 'artisan'

what even is an artisan cake???

chicken nuggets

chicken nuggets: yes or yes?

Fortunately, at this point, the Mighty Mushroom was mainly interested in what on earth silly string was, as it had never seen such a substance before

unfortunately, the sucession of the rapid response squad made the bandits very jealous - they were formerly the most revered squad of any kind in all of Somewhere That Isn't Spagetti Western Land But Could Be.

may i recommend our latest product, anti-wild metaphor repellent*, three quick sprays on your jacket and the metaphors won't come near! only 3.99 and available in all reputable pharmacies and trail shops!
*not to be confused with anti-wild meteor defence spray, which will render an attacking metaphor unconcious, but will have the same effect on you if you try and spray it on you jacket.

how can i make my fantasy stories simultaneously both highly original and exactly what the reader was hoping for???

your ocarina is no longer out of tune, because it is no longer a musical instrument- reality has been shaped to my perception of it, namely a wild misunderstanding of the zelda games, which i do not actually play, and all ocarinas are now magical time portals and also do not actually exist.

I wish the people who write fantasy tv shows and reboots always got the continuity perfect.

I can absolutely guarantee that every letter in the Chronicles of Narnia also appears in the UN conventions. The problem is with the words. At a first glance, one cannot see the words 'Aslan' or 'parallel universe' occuring with any frequency in, say, a resolution on nuclear disarmament. However, this is looking at things in an entirely too simplistic way. One has to ask oneself - are we concerned with the letter of the law, or the spirit of the law? International law is intended to establish principles which everybody should, theoretically at least, be able to agree on. The Chronicles of Narnia consist in large part of principles of this kind, including such wisdom as 'it's probably best to stay away from dragons', 'fish and chips are always welcome, even when being chased by homicidal ice mages', and 'if you run towards danger then at least you don't risk finding it behind you where you weren't expecting'. Therefore, if one reads international law with a sufficiently open mind, one is able to see through its mere mortal print and into the very soul of the thing - which is, of course, the Chronicles of Narnia.

Prove that Batman was the inventor of custard.

You can. Unfortunately, the characters from your stories ask you such deep metaphysical questions about the nature of reality and their own existance, the question of free will and determinism in fictional worlds, and how much jam costs in Uzbekistan, that you get confused and spend the next week firmly convinced that you are, in fact, a small jar of Uzbekistani marmalade.

I wish I could get Chinese takeaway at 3am without waking my housemates up.

Unfortunately the wild new financial sucess of this small town has attracted a problem- bandits. Specifically, armed with silly string.

Obviously, why has no one thought of this sooner??

What is the best metaphor to describe the nature of reality? I'm not sure a cat in a box quite covers it for me.

oh gosh yes, 'probably ritual' as code for 'we have no idea' is one of the funniest things in archaeology XD
I'll take that
