BIG POINTY THINGS OF DEATH

Have you ever had a conversation and then thought, "Now, THAT should be in a book"?

Last night, Slayer asked what I'd been up to during the day, and I said, "I did some blog interviews. Got to talk about you some too, and how sexy it is when you hit shuriken out of thin air."

"You've seen that?" he asked.

I wonder if he thought he was invisible too.

"Yep. Not this black belt test, but the last one."

"Oh." He shrugged. "Well, I don't understand what's so impressive. I mean, it's just hitting things out of the air...BIG POINTY THINGS OF DEATH."

I'd like to write a book named BIG POINTY THINGS OF DEATH. Any ideas on what it could be about? Other than an invisible guy who can hit things out of the air, of course.

Uh...my first thought was the old cartoon Tranzor Z...he was a robot who shot his hands at targets. The phrase "Big pointy things of death" made me think of the female robot, which shot her boobs at targets. NOT KIDDING.

I can't think clearly enough to help after watching that Hoffwash. I kept thinking, why the heck would he do that commercial? Then I saw that it was a roast and I died dead of laughter.

It could be about baby proofing your house. I would totally buy it! Especially if you had crude drawings of what NOT to do.

That's the great thing about that title. You'd HAVE to peek at the book to see what it was about.

Little girl with m91/30 bayonet. Awwww.

And to take that one ^^^ and modernize it a bit, I give to you the chainsaw bayonet.

I was going to post a pic of Madonna in this, but I figured A - this was less PG-13, and B - you're a glee fan, so I think this one will do.

Also, NO book that includes big pointy things of death can be complete without referencing the fact that ...death awaits you all, with nasty big pointy teeth! Incidentally, how's his bunny avoidance technique coming along? I wanna be there for THAT test. Behind a 2 foot thick piece of lexan, of course.
