Don't Look at Zeke

Post by DoctorBanzai » Fri Apr 12, 2013 2:38 am

I watched in horror, hidden under the dealer’s table, as the heavy set man with the “My Name Is Zeke” sticker on his shirt methodically pulled the rotting, blackened teeth from the walking corpse’s mouth. On either side, each holding one arm tightly to keep the creature from moving, Zeke’s friends egged him on, cheering and chanting as he pulled the teeth with the rusty pliers clenched tightly in his right hand.

My horror grew as I realized what this was doing to good-old Zeke; his left hand thrust down the front of his stained jeans, grinning like a madman.

I'm starting to doubt that you are a real doctor.
I'm beginning to think you're about two drabbles short of being added to the TSA's No-Fly list.
But worst of all, I'm beginning to suspect I might want to keep my suspicions to myself.

For the sake of the wife and kids.
And pets and neighbors.

Strawman, your suspisions may be correct.

At least I have 2 Drabbles to go before my addition to the No - Fly List. I'll have to make them really good ones. :wink:

Believe it or not, this is the tamed down version of the drabble, which is actually a clip from a longer story in the same series that my earlier drabble, The Butcher, came from.

For my part, I doubt you are an actual bonsai.

But he's clearly been pruned.
