* My imaginary friend Kate built her own replicator by cobbling together bits of information from various Star Trek episodes and a few Calvin and Hobbes strips and while working on this replicator she caught her leg in some of the hardware and had to request my asistance, which I gladdly provided, and I was able to extricate her in short order with one unexpected side effect in the output hopper: I now had an extra Kate.

(OK, it's a run on, but I couldn't help myself :)

* This story about how Rudy the Cat needed to be extricated from a garbage disposal wherein he'd stuck his head chasing some leftover salmon is quite amusing.

* Roxy the call girl couldn't figure out what happened to the doughnuts she'd left on the kitchen table. As it turns out, an extricate them.

* I was going to submit a sentence, but now I'm too astounded by Rudy's adventure to think...

* As the angry mob pressed in to lynch me for using 'ineluctable' in a serious sentence, I considered how best to extricate myself from this pickle.

* "When I returned Mary Jo and the car were gone."

Yes, Senator Kennedy, but why didn't you extricate Ms. Kopechne from this dangerous situation before you ran for help?

* Borrowing heavily from the brilliance of Matt above:

Ric Ocasek showed up disheveled on my doorstep sans Paulina and claimed to have learned that consumption of large quantities of leather had become inextricably linked to his continued survival. First he ate my watch and nEXT RIC ATE my shoes
