the "similarity to dril" ordering on this is so good otherorders.net/ my picks from the most dril-like sentences in Grimm's Fairy Tales:

* look at the shoe!
* Was it not enough to clip off the end of my beard?
* Perhaps the unknown man will show himself.'
* The second, 'Who has been eating off my plate?'
* 'I set it on my head and it kicked my face.'
* Then the man said, 'I knew not that the garden belonged to you; can nothing save my life?'

Most Eroticism as an Approximation of Similarity to a Sentence by Anaïs Nin in A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

They had just reached this point when the young man seized his two companions and dragged them down into the shadow, where they lay silent and trembling.

@aparrish Two from eroticism in "The Communist Manifesto":

"Thus the aristocracy took their revenge by singing lampoons on their new master, and whispering in his ears sinister prophecies of coming catastrophe."

"They had to be burst asunder; they were burst asunder."

@aparrish Also Gothness in "The Communist Manifesto": "WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!"

@aparrish hmm
1) Cinderella (the birds about the stepsister's bloody shoe)
2) That's the dwarf from Snow White and Rose Red
3) I dunno that one
4) one of the dwarves from Snow White
5) aaaa. I know which story it is, but I don't know the title. *duckducks* Clever Hans https://www.grimmstories.com/en/grimm_fairy-tales/clever_hans
6) Is that Rapunzel's father?

@aparrish I’m crying, this is excellent. Also I fed Ulysses to the dril sieve and it was pretty much as I hoped.

@aparrish this would be really lovely integrated into a fedi client. I wonder how hard that would be to do.
