TIM SEVENHUYSEN: Victor

Plop.

“Eat up!” said Mom.

Victor stared at his plate. Yuck. What was this slimy, moldy, mushy gunk?

“Don’t you like it?”

“Gross!” said Victor. “Is this rotten food?”

“It’s your winnings,” said Mom. “The ones you gloated about after Monopoly. Like you said, to the victor go the spoils!”


I’m happy to announce the birth of my second son, Victor! This story is for him.

Side Effects

“Any questions, sir?” says the clerk.

“What are this medication’s side effects?” asks the customer.

“There are none.”

“None? Impressive. Three bottles, please.”

The customer pays and leaves.

Another clerk says, “You didn’t tell him it turns people into pathological liars?”

“I couldn’t,” says the clerk. “I’m taking it myself.”


This story was based on the prompts “side effects” and “pathological liar” at TypeTrigger.

Batman Goes to the Zoo

One day Bruce Wayne brought Dick Grayson to the Gotham City Zoo.

While they were there, they got caught up in, and foiled, a mobster’s nefarious mammal-smuggling scheme.

“This city is full of animals,” said Batman.

It was that kind of writing that threatened to kill the comic book industry.
