Deep Fried Fig Newtons

She had a burning but unrequited love. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so she transformed herself into a microorganism and crawled up his intestines.

She discovered some deep fried fig newtons in there, which intensified her affections.

She lived in his heart until he died.


Based on a title suggested by Dan Hingston via Facebook.

Poor Bill

They found him in his living room.

He was known to drink to excess, but this was different. Everyone knew two things about Bill: he never wasted alcohol, and he kept his newspapers immaculate.

He’d spilled beer all over the paper. That’s how they knew it was a heart attack.


This story was based on a prompt from @davefp via Twitter. I asked for two nouns and a verb, and he supplied paperheart, and drink.
