Cannibal Ken

Post by ZuSquared » Sun Jun 20, 2010 9:31 am

Ken dashed past his mother, at the stove, and down the stairs to the basement. His haste might arouse suspicion but she could never see what was under his shirt. She'd never understand why he couldn't have normal tastes like her.

Unwrapping the contraband, lingeringly, he breathed in its aroma. One that would leave others, like his mother, heaving in the sink. Slowly he brought it to his lips...

"Ken!"

His mother, pan in hand, was at his door, face contorted with disgust.

"How could you eat an... Oreo?"

Boy Scout soup dripped on her shoes.

Freaky. Reminds me of this picture: presents unwrapping people.

Hmmm...a picture worth a hundred words?

Is it bad that when I originally read the title to this one I instantly wanted to rebut with BBQ Barbie?

Nice Drabble! :)

BBQ Barbie sounds great. In fact Mattel, or whoever, should embark upon a range of "Alternative Lifestyle Barbies" with a cannibal themed dolly right there in the mix, somewhere.

It's bad that, for my 8 year son's school "Sandwich Making Contest", I had him make a sandwich in the shape of a skull with a side of salami zombie fingers complete with little red capsicum fingernails.

I like the idea of 'salami zombie fingers'!

Wow. I'm glad you saved it too, Strawman! Leftovers are underrated, I say.

Yes, I removed the royal ring, of course. Wouldn't want to chip a tooth. May I ask how you knew?
