Fried in Butter

Post by andyd273 » Wed Sep 10, 2008 8:55 pm

The phone rang. I answered on the second ring.
"Serial Killers Guild, Ed speaking."
My boss answered "Ed, we have a problem. It's the Park Side Strangler. He went hunting without a license."
"That sounds bad."
"It's worse, the vic was paid up on his protection for the year, so we're going to have to pay damages to the family."
"Any special instructions?"
"None, choose your own methods, and trophies are allowed."
I hung up the phone, then grabbed my hockey mask and chain saw.
An honest serial killer has to eat, and the hearts are the best, I say.

Even murderers follow rules and regulations.
Is nothing sacred?

I love how the title fits in with the ending. Brilliant!
Philosophy is a game with objectives and no rules. Mathematics is a game with rules and no objectives.

You're always the hero in your own story - life is about not being the villain in anyone else's.

It's inspired by the Ankh Morpork guild system...
Make the criminals enforce the rules...
If you aren't part of the guild, then the guild is the one that has to hunt you down, and if you are part of the guild, then the law knows who and where you are.
