    I had always said the only good boss was a dead boss and I knew that for sure now as I smiled at the corpse in a suit sliding down the desk in front of me.

    When the bum at the corner said he wanted to "eat me", I thought he was just one more pervert, at least until he aimed for my head.

    Damn good lesson, that.

    The average human body holds about 6 quarts of blood, which is quite a lot when you see it smeared from one wall to the other.

    Steve could not begin to imagine, didn't want to imagine but couldn't stop himself from replaying again and again the image, even as a part of his mind balked and cowered, the thing that poked out for the briefest of seconds from behind the tree--stalking him.

    The trouble with home cooking is that by the time the fire dies, all the good parts are charred.

    Oops! Looks like I've been busted. Have to post another opening as penance. Let's see...


    Removing the bastard's teeth probably would have been easier if I'd gone through the mouth, but where's the fun in that?

    Still agitated, the parrot at the crime scene climbed the sides of his cage, squawked and called out, "Is that the bogeyman?"

    When my CEOs son took up the desk next to me at Monday morning, I knew his blood would have to be spilled onto his monitor by Friday afternoon.

    John was a bright guy, and an excellent worker with a great future, but his habit of killing our CEOs and their children didn't fit in well with our business plan, so we had no choice but to murder him.

    Oh, no! This post has no entry! Please edit your post to include an entry in the game. This is not a chitchat thread, scribbler!

    My entry:

    I woke up naked under the golden gate bridge with my mouth full of blood and torn flannel pajamas.

    edit to add:

    Thank you, scribbler! Go in peace and sin no more.

    Edit to add an entry because this is not a chitchat thread:

    My fingers wouldn't stop strangling people.
