Chief Superintendent Lookout: "Briefer"?  Good grief, did none of you people ever learn how to use a modifier??

I think comparatives use -er and -est for words of 1 syllable. With some notable exceptions.

And the person who quickly informs you of the facts of a certain issue would be a briefer.

I once found a book called something like "101 Great Short, Short Science Fiction Stories". My favorite was one titled, "Sign at the end of the universe"

Northern: That was the moment that we collectively realized Foreigner and Loverboy were in fact not the same band.


Oh please.

In their finest hour, Foreigner never made anything half as catchy as Loverboy's "Just Won't Splice."

"We have created a monster, Doktor Frankenstein!" screeched Igor, the doktor's right and left hand man, his little body quivering with delight, and before the good doctor could stop him Igor waved various human limbs and organs in the patchwork face of the giant, howling, "Tell me, stranger, are you from these parts?"
