I've heard of streets paved with gold, but please tell me where the asphalt roads look like this:

The Magic Sparkle Cupcake Kingdom? Did a bus full of fairy princesses get T-boned by a troll driving his Hummer (I know what you are thinking, environmentalists, but don't worry--it's powered by wishes) to the Bridge-Dwellers Tenement Union? They try frantically to swerve out of the way, but Peter Pan is hovering outside talking on his cell 'phone. In a tragic Icarian flip-flop, he is just too low for safety. He smashes against the windshield, his body desecrated by a last futile effort of the wipers before the blinded bus smashes into Timmy, the Talking Tree. Tinkerbell floats on in a solitary haze. Tears and fairy dust drift slowly to the ground and settle upon the asphalt.

  1. OMG, that is hilarious! I'm going to try to use "Magic Sparkle Cupcake Kingdom" in a sentence today. Also "tragic Icarian flipflop"! You should be writing children's books (you know, the kind with double meaning so adults enjoy them, too?).
