Teeth

Post by Phenopath » Sat Oct 03, 2009 12:00 pm

As the insipid morning light filtered through the bedroom curtains Chad sat on the floor and wept. His hands held the blackened teeth which he had collected from his pillow and bedding. Inside his raw, empty mouth his tongue felt nothing but rotting stumps. Choking, he wretched up a bloody mess; the lining of his mouth which had sloughed off during his sleep.

In misery Chad remembered the night before. He had been out with his buddies, hanging out at the mall. He remembered drinking the can of Koca-Kola. He had had no idea.

Don't be a fool. Drink Pepsi!

I thought it was just a gross-out story until the very end, at which point it became quite funny. I imagine a couple of empty Coke cans sitting on the table by the bed, and the big Pepsi logo filling the screen at the end, accompanied by its happy jingle.

Tweedy, surely you mean Koca-Kola cans?

We are two-dimensional characters talking about how to become three dimensional... wait a minute... seems I read something about that in a drabble or somewhere...

Hmm Strawman, hmmm.

I think that there may be legs in hyper-aggressive advertising, it is the way of the future.

I am perpetuating nothing. Whilst I may refuse to go to the dentist, my teeth are in tip-top condition. This is because I drink nothing but Pepsi Cola :D

I hear it tastes twice as good if you swallow a Mento before you drink one.
