Last Man Standing.

Post by Astroguyz » Fri Mar 08, 2013 9:30 pm

The apocalypse came, as they always knew it would. Zombie plague, alien invasion, killer comet, did the source really matter? It all equated to the same muted ending, a systematic extermination of mankind. He thought of the irony, the endless parade of hipster magazines that had trumpeted his anticipated demise and the legion of life insurance companies that once wouldn't go near him. But he’d outlived them all, one by one. The Universe didn't have a twisted sense of irony, he thought. It is in fact, completely bent. The last example of Homo sapiens, Keith Richards surveyed the twisted landscape.

'There's a ledge. Keith found a ledge!'
'Hey man, pass down that guitar, I've got a riff.'
They made Keith out of the same stuff as the Queen Mum and black box recorders.
