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!
