Best Ever

Post by Chivalrybean » Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:53 pm

"OK kids, who wants a balloon hat!"

"This clown is lame and scary!"

"How about you Timmy, it is your birthday after all!"

The clown twisted together some balloons. Little did the children know that the balloons would be twisted into an evil shape that would eat the mind of Timmy, feeding the clown.

The clown raised the diabolical balloon hat to Timmy's head. Two bright glints of metal flew through the air, slicing through the balloons, popping them, then burying into the clowns chest.

The clown toppled over, dead.

The children cheered.

"This is the best party ever, Timmy!"

Yay, a happy ending.

Best Feel-good drabble ever.

Seriously, I'm in awe.

Are these a collection of works over time, or have you just had an incredibly amazing creative jag going?

Almost all (or all, perhaps) are from my entries into the 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge.

Oh good.

If you had said you wrote them all in two days I was going to give up.

Even if I had, giving up would have been silly {;0)

I speak hyperbolically of course, to emphasize my admiration of your talent.

I still whistle even though Mozart did his thing.

Great stuff. I love the phrase "bright glints of metal". It just sounds... right.

Also, you mean to tell me that there's been a 100 word story contest and no one told me? Time to whip up some more drabbles...

You've inspired me to give a try at a clown drabble.

Be warned, it's all your fault :)

Clowns are evil. Even a 'good' clown is like when someone reads the Necronimicon 'just for fun'.
