The Farmer

Post by LajesticVantrashellofLob » Mon Aug 03, 2009 3:47 pm

My wife and I stared out the dirty window as the rain finally stopped.

I grumbled, pulled on my boots, grabbed my spade and headed outside. The field was a mess after this morning’s rain, and we worried that the extra water would ruin the crop.

I dug up the first one I came to. I pulled it out by the hair, checking to make sure it was still healthy.

The head stared back at me, its bloodshot eyes wide with terror. I shoved it back into the cold earth before it could scream.

“Good crop this year.” I muttered.

Yes! This is the sort of drabble that I like :)

I envision a normal kind of guy climbing naked out of his pumpkin shell with the caption: "Out of his gourd".

Given the drabble, that is both hilarious and very, very creepy.

Great pun. Or, as Mr. Tweedy would say, Boo! Hiss! :D

Your Drabble pretty much summarizes the plot of "Motel Hell" quite nicely in 100 words.

"Motel Hell", huh? Never heard of it.

*googles it*

Ah. Your comment makes sense now :D. Sounds like a decent (if low-budget) film... I'll have to watch it sometime.
