A taste of justice

I can see you Henry Roy James, and I know you can see me!

But you don’t recognise me.

You still think you got away with it, but really, you didn’t!

The jury may have believed you, but natural justice shall prevail.

You killed me, and I’m going to kill you.

Then I’m going to eat you!

Their twin grandchildren walked everywhere with them, always a few paces in front.
The gap increased each year that passed.
Their daughter, and her husband, had been killed outright in a head on crash 8 months into her pregnancy.
The first responder wept as she declared all 4 dead.

Laura the lamb was really embarrassed. 
Late for school, yet again!
It was bad enough that her Mum insisted on taking her every day, always waiting outside the gates, there for everyone to see.
No other Mum had 2 bodies;  and why did the legs always try to go in different directions?

Away with the fairies

Mary placed fresh flowers by the picture frame every Friday, the day that her 4 year old son had jumped into the picture.

He’d always insisted that the fairies talked to him, and said he could join them. She’d played along, and said how lovely it would be.

She regretted that now!

The Happening

It was a strange community.
They never seemed to get together, or even to communicate at the most basic level, until someone suggested they arrange a happening.
Maisie keenly arranged it all.
Just what is a happening? Jack asked.
Think of it as a play, she said.

Let’s face it!

Peter, the pumpkin, was feeling really glum. You could see by the look on his face.

He’d been in this pile of pumpkins for 2 weeks now and, despite having worked his way up to the top and front of the pile, no-one had chosen him to be their Jack-o’-lantern for Halloween. Sad face!

An educated palate

The crows all knew that it was only a matter of time!

The boarding school was absolutely chock-a-block with small, tasty, children.

The birds were salivating with the sweet smell of young flesh, rising up on the thermals.

They had to come out soon.

It was only a matter of time!

Retired hurt!

The naturist tree huggers club had chosen their site really badly for this year’s convention.

The forest was mostly made up of young oak trees and the bark was really rough.

The opening “get to know your tree” dance resulted in multiple injuries and most members had to retire hurt!

The party

She hated the Christmas party.

They said it was good for staff morale and all that crap!

She hated it!

All that posing. The bling. Yuk!

Then the boss started to come on to her. She lost it.

Smack!!! Right on the nose. It looked broken.

He was a bully, and pretty ‘armless.

What a dummy!

The Sand Fly Typing Pool

The experiment had been tried before with monkeys.
Now, working with sand flies, it was thought that, eventually, their landing on the row of keyboards must lead to a work worthy of Shakespeare.
What a pity Charlie, the office junior, had forgotten to load the platens with paper!

Those new contraceptive tablets were great.
The instructions were really clear.
I just had to make a sheath out of the intestine of a goat and stretch it over my organ, before ravishing all the handmaidens I desired.
I didn’t have an organ, or a piano, so I stretched it over my lyre!
