OneWord - so little time! [vacuous]

At first glance, his facial features were so vacuous that I thought he was dead. Turns out he was just so absorbed in the webcomic he was reading that he hadn't heard me enter the room. I remember thinking that it couldn't be that funny of a comic. He certainly wasn't laughing. I walked around him to see what was on the screen. It was "The Adventures of Hypnotoad!"

Oh, LeftUnsaid27! ROTFLMAO! I really had to take a moment to compose myself before I started writing this one. The second I saw your choice of word, my mind was flooded with Graham Chapman shouting, "Shut your festering gob, you tit! Your type makes me puke, you vacuous, toffee-nosed, malodorous pervert!" in The Argument Sketch!

Ah, I remember 'The Argument Sketch'.

Chat after my vacation.

Hey, I like your contest idea. I had a similar one earlier this year (but a story version) and turned it into a website. It's www.sixminutestory.com. It’s still in beta, and we’re looking for bloggers to spread the word. Seeing as you definitely like writing, I think you'll like this. Cheers!

I can't say I know this "argument" of which you speak, but I'm glad I could aid in a hearty laugh.
I had a better word planned, but I get excited in the moment and can never think of what I really wanted.
and sorry about my last word being a repeat! What were the odds of that?

Thanks, Galen, I will check it out!

Sounds like you need to brush up on your Monty Python, Lefty. The Argument Sketch is hilarious!
