just pulled a piece of till paper out of my pocket. it says "oath worm" on it. i thought during work today that this would make a good post

not to be confused with oaf worm: useless, clumsy fool of a worm

so apparently it did make a good post. i've never started a meme before

i'm intrigued. what can you tell us about this oath worm?

@DMX @jackdaw_ruiz i know nothing except that it's not a libertarian. i believe it's a cross between an earth worm and an oh, worm?

@DMX @bryn

🤔 i like to imagine it's a tiny worm you tell your oath to, and then it burrows underground to grow up. and the longer you keep your oath, the bigger and better the worm gets until the day you need it to return to the surface for some reason. like maybe to devour your enemies, or just to ride through the drive-thru?

but i'm just spitballin here. there's a lot of directions and possibility for oath worm.

@jackdaw_ruiz @bryn the oath worm keeps track of every time you break a promise, and then shows up to your arguments with receipts

@jackdaw_ruiz @DMX @bryn the oath worm is mortality, it awaits us all. at birth we swear to it to return

we accumulate our experiences, we live, we love, and at the end, we give the gift of our lives to the oath worm, who takes us in and recycles us for the benefit of the soil and for all living things that grow

@applebaps @DMX @bryn

brb off to lead a rich and fulfilling life so i can be mad tasty for that worm when i go.

@jackdaw_ruiz @DMX @bryn such is our duty as those who swear the oath. wormspeed to you

@jackdaw_ruiz @DMX @bryn related species does treaty enforcement, holds both parties to a reciprocal oath. If either breaks it the worm will rampage upon their household

@bryn @bryn swearing a vow by the oath worm to protect the earth at all costs

@bryn trying to rearrange the letters into something fun but the best I have so far is "wat hormo"

@pig @bryn

Oath Worm: A hot worm, wart homo, moo wrath, oo warmth,


my profile is an

@bryn ah i found the og post. i can finally take the oath. my journey is at an end

@bryn I can't help but imagine an accent that would turn "earth" into "oath"

Yarr, we goit some oath worms in stork, ye be plonnin a gorden, eh?

@bryn just a sloppy 'earth warm' climate change complaint. ;)

They till the oath one cubic centimeter at a time. Cool, dark, spongey oath shot through with oathworms.

@HYPERLINK @bryn I have taken the oath of the worm, I will not marry or bear children. I will not fail the worm until my dying breath.

@starwall @bryn just took the Oath Worm Challenge, which means I say "oh worm?" instead of "oh word?" until all my friends get tired of Hanging out with me anymore,

@bryn one time in middle school i picked up a piece of paper that just said "i hat carpet" and i still remember it today

@Katie one time i was walking on the beach with my family and we found a message in a bottle. we were so excited. the paper inside said, in a child's handwriting, "this is my interpretation of a pig man with a bered" accompanied by a drawing of their interpretation of a pig man with a beard

@bryn a cousin of the vouchworm (a harbinger), the oathworm is a squishy herald of nemesis to come
