Vorpal Botch (Because Nerd Bits #11)
This week on Because Nerd Bits:
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One… OH FUCK!!! I BOTCHED MY ROLL! I ROLLED A One! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
It left me dead, and without my head
As it went galumphing down my back.
