Superman Stood

In Drabbles, Fan Fiction, Fiction, Short Stories on November 22, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Superman stood atop a hill, watching.  He no longer fought, as he once had, to protect Metropolis.

A boy climbed the hill and asked Superman, “Why don’t you help us?  No one could stand against you.”

Superman replied, “Like everyone, I follow the path of least resistance.  But which path shall I follow when nothing can or will resist me?”

The young man thought.

“How about the path of greatest good?”

Superman looked at the boy.

“Don’t lecture me, you little snot.”  And he batted the kid off the hill.

Did I mention, this was bad Superman from Superman III.

New Terrorist Weapon Devastating, Extremely Tasty

In Drabbles, Fiction, Short Stories on November 21, 2012 at 12:39 pm

The Defense Secretary released statistics today revealing increased deaths overseas due to proliferation of what experts are calling PCFs, or poisonous candy frogs.  Enemy militia released a thousand of the insidious bio-weapons into allied military bases last month, resulting in everything getting sticky as well as persistent allied casualties.  “They look so tasty,” said one sergeant, “all bright stripes like one of those big lollipops.  You can’t help but lick them even though they’re poisonous.”  Licking one as he spoke, the sergeant did indeed die shortly thereafter.  I am also licking one right now.  Tell my wife I love her.
