No one better

Post by strawman » Thu Jul 16, 2009 5:50 pm

Mary fell in love with Josh because she was attracted to confident men. Josh’s parents, strong believers in self-esteem, instilled in their son that no one was better than he was. Josh often told others, “No one is better than Josh McDaniel.” It won Mary’s heart. At their wedding, Mary raised her glass and said, “Because no one is better than Josh.” Everyone agreed, and drank to the happy couple.

Over the years, Mary often heard Josh repeat his mantra. When Josh died, she wrote on his headstone, “Now that I live with no one, I know it’s the truth.”

The end was a little awkward. I had to read it twice before I got it, but then the LOL came strong.

Also, needs more strange.

What if Josh and Mary were zombies? (No wait, that would be my solution to that particular problem...)

It's funny because it's true. Josh's douchebag vibe came across strong, well told.
