Posted:Do what it tells on the tin!



one sentence only... or else I'll BITE you for being an idiot ;-)



eg.



The Wizard Of Oz

Goody twoshoes girl Dorothy throws a wobbly at her family so get sucked through spacetime, squashes nasty old hag and the walks down a yellow road with three freaks, kills another nasty old hag with a bowl of water before shouting at a wizard and then finally realising she could have gone home all along by saying "no place like home" repeatedly.
