HUMOUR. WEIRD. FLASH FICTION. IS THIS AN ATTACK ON THE PATRIARCHY? THE MATRIARCHY? OR JUST PLAIN STUPID?

Legless

 

- Mum why haven't I got any legs?

- Well Jimmy, I cut them off. That's why.

- But why Mum? Why'd you cut them off?

- Well you don't need legs do you Jimmy?

I look after you don't I Jimmy?

- But Mum, I want some legs!

- Well you can't have any!

- But why not Mum?

- Well you might run away!

- But Mum why would I do that?

- I don't know Jimmy, but I couldn't chase

after you, and rescue you.

- No Mum? Why?

- Because your Father cut my legs off!

- So has Dad got any legs Mum?

- Not when he's drunk Jimmy, then he's

legless...

Just as well these comments are submitted in writing, for I find myself speechless. These little stories of yours, Tom, are unique and entertaining. I don't always comment, but I do so every now and again just to let you know that you are appreciated.

Your comment is much appreciated Vance, It makes writing worthwhile! I'm headless, legless and what do you suggest next?

What do I suggest? Well, Tom, that depends on whether you pose a threat to society. If you do, I suggest cutting off your arms to render yourself 'armless.
