Eat Your Ice Cream, Bart

“Eat your ice cream, Bart,” said Mom.

“But I want more broc’li!”

Bart grimaced grumpily.

“I’ll put carrot shavings on it,” Mom offered.


This story was based on a title suggested by my sister Catherine.

Every member of the cannibal collective oohed and aahed.

“The volunteer provides dessert, right?” Milos beamed. “Now you get to eat me twice!”
