What is This S**t!?

By Mike Stevens

"Welcome to another edition of 'Flash Time', brought

to you today by 'Binge Beer. 'Get Your Binge On!'.

Del Manson slumped down into his worn and ripped-up recliner

chair, after yet-another bulls**t day at work. His bastard boss; oh

how much he longed to make him eat it! As he gazed around at

his run-down mobile home, which he rented, not owned, he felt

the despair wash over him, the despair unaffected by the Binge

Beer* he held in his hand. He was already on his 5th, and he felt

nothing. Look at this dump! he thought. This represented the

sum of his worthless life so far, and he was all-too-sure he wasn't

ever going to break away from the chains of hopelessness

holding him down. Well, he'd think about that tomorrow, right

now, there was T.V. to watch. He went into the hovel of a kitchen

and pulled his microwave Salisbury steak T.V. dinner out of the

microwave, opened another Binge Beer*, flopped down into

his recliner, grabbed the T.V. remote, and turned on the T.V., and saw,

what? A showall about scavenger hunting! "What the hell is this s**t?"

he said towards the screen. "Why would I even

give two s**t's about this?" He then changed the channel until he came to

coverage of the big tractor pull. This was more like it!

The End

*Binge Beer, The Official Beer of 'The Stomp-A** Tractor Pull"
