The Showdown

Post by Ellen M » Sat Nov 27, 2010 9:09 pm

The Minhotops, Bandersnatch, and Boris walk into a bar on a Sunday night battle weary after two weeks in combat. Boris suddenly swatted at the embedded splintered battle remnants off as though a swarm of cockroaches had engulfed him. ‘Snatch bobbed his head to the non-existent blare of music hoping he was on beat and Minho glided into a booth and absently grabbed from the bowl of fava beans. He looked up at his companions. “So, truce, right? I’m buyin’.”

Sir Hopkins polished his cleaver and stepped from behind the bar and smiled to himself as the clock neared midnight.

(I couldn't resist)

Sir Anthony would be better, but the fava beans give it away. But I like the intro. Sounds like a joke setup.

Thanks for the nod. I've never...drabbled...before, much less in public. :oops:

It could've been more carefully crafted, indeed.

Not in Georgia, they don't, thanks to blue laws.

But Minhotops says to Bandersnatch, "Hey look at that, a tiny piano player!" Boris then finds a magic lantern, rubs it, and asks the djin for a million bucks. The bar is suddenly cram full of mallards.
"What's the deal with that?", Boris says to the bartender. "I ask for a million bucks and get a million ducks!"
The bartender tells him, "And I didn't ask for a twelve inch pianist."

At which point Bandersnatch kills Boris and Minhotep.
