Humor       THE LIZARDS AND IBy Conda V. Douglas

Humor       DromedaryBy Samuel Mae

Being the self-sufficient person that I am, when I ran out of bread this week, I thought I'd just whip up a loaf in my kitchen.

Humor       Zombie PsychologyBy Sarina Dorie
I'd been expecting my ex-boyfriend to show up sooner or later, and when he did, I knew he'd probably want to eat my brain.

(Or How I Cooked An Alien And Nearly Started A War Of Worlds)

No answer.

The stove was on and...

Humor       Six Feet BlunderBy S.E. Batt
Out of all the places that Louis had awoken after an accident, he'd put his own grave high on the list.

Humor       Frying CabbageBy Sheila Crosby
Sometimes I enjoy cooking, but this wasn't one of those times. I was chopping up a cabbage for lunch. (I fry cabbage with a little bit of bacon and garlic - very good) And I was bored, bored, bored.

The knife hit something hard. There, in the very center of the cabbage, gleamed a massive pearl

Humor       Not just for ChristmasBy Owen Smith

'An angel.'

Humor       Beware! Space Pandas!By Will Ross
I think the greatest environmental threat to the human race is if super smart pandas had lasers and they came down from space where aliens trained them to be smart, but also shoot lasers. This would be a drastic change of environment. Because it would be a bear, which is harder to shoot than a person,

Humor       PopcornBy Richard Beland
The galleon returned from the New World loaded with corn, and the little country of Wolverton found a thousand and one uses for this new product: they ground it into flour and made porridge and bread; they made starch and oil and syrup; they ate it off the cob and washed it down with corn liquor;

Humor       The Thing Under The BedBy Beki Muchow
It was my first apartment, a sublet actually, and I was terribly excited. I rang the buzzer and was greeted by the tenant, a scruffy, greasy-haired fellow, his arms loaded with boxes and a donut in his mouth. He was on his way to study bugs in the Amazon or some such thing.
