    He’s an ex-alcoholic beat cop. She’s the Pope. They solve crime.

      “What are you going to do with that damned thurible? Beat the perp into submission?”

      1. Mike says:

        Heh. More bells and smells until he confesses, methinks.

  2. ghosttie says:

    Oh his deathbed a man realizes that everything he’s ever been told was a lie and he doesn’t have to die, so he lives forever.

      “Telomeres? Everything? I can just shed this like a skin, get up, and walk away, like a fucking psychic snake?”

      1. ghosttie says:

        Especially telomeres.

        This is actually something I thought of as a child – the vast majority of the information we have is not first-hand, so how could I really know that I would grow up to be an adult? Maybe adults were actually an alien species enslaving the child race. Maybe if you don’t believe in things they won’t happen. Lots of magical thinking as a child. Reality is a harsh mistress.

    A werewolf, a football player and a turnip walk into a bar.

    1. Jay says:

      My shotgun was loaded with silver buckshot laced with myrrh, Lacey on bar back was a former cheerleader with the assets up front to prove it, but I sure as hell didn’t have a Cuisinart big enough for that strapping young turnip.

  4. In the end, it turned out the cat was right after all.

    1. Jay says:

      Fluffy tucked her shiv into her duct tape belt and crept along the outer wall of the ruined Walmart.
