From the smart ass collection – Curiosity Killed the Chat (for Trifextra)


For my weekly stab at satire, I wrote this third and final entry for the Trifextra Weekend Challenge.  Here are the bloody rules – Entrants must write a horror story in 33 words exactly, without the words blood, scream, died, death, knife, gun or kill. But enough with the gory details.  This contest slays me.  I hope I don’t beat it to death. Waiting ’til Monday for the results will be murder.

Trifextra Entry #3 – Curiosity Killed the Chat

“What’s your plan?”

“Don’t know.”

“What about ‘bludgeon?'”

“Fine.”

“‘Axe?’ ‘Chainsaw?’ ‘Hook?'”

“All FINE!

“Dude, there’s lots of words left.”

“Not anymore.”(WHACK! … THUD!…) (spoken to camera) “I’m gonna need a bigger post.”

The inspiration for that famous line.  It scared the daylights out of me.

“I need to write about it?”

“Yes.”

“But I can’t say it?”

“That’s right.”

“What the … ? Who am I , Lou Costello?”

“Sorry. I don’t get it. That reference is completely … wasted on me.”

Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. Costello.
