20 more mini-ficlets. Had to add a word to two of them - you could tell what was meant to go in the spot, but it annoyed me that I'd missed the error in getting them down to 140 characters, so bugger it. Two go over, deal with it!

Folks called Bert an idiot- he couldn't read or write. But he enjoyed life, could make any engine purr, & build an entire house from scratch
"I know this is a little confronting," said God to the scientist, "But welcome! I only let people with open & enquiring minds into heaven."
The wolves closed in. Suddenly a figure appeared in a nearby tree. It was his Procrastination Fairy! Quickly, she pulled out a book, & began to read.
The zombie paused, sniffed Sid, & turned away. He was relieved, but couldn't help feeling insulted too - most people were funny about Vegans
