On the Trail of the Blobbit (FF)



As they arrived in the clearing, Hayes and Biggins were certain they had at long last found what they sought.

"We've done it, Biggins!" said Hayes. "We've finally succeeded in tracking the Blobbit's lair by following his nightly call."

"And to think," replied Biggins, "neither you nor I has ever actually seen a Blobbit." 

"I'm going to inspect his dwelling place," ventured Hayes, as he cautiously approached the dwelling's entrance and entered.

"No, no, Hayes!"  cried Biggins.   

It was too late.  The entrance closed around Hayes, fully enveloping him.

"Blobbit!  Blobbit!  Blobbit!"

"Darn it," said Biggins, "another second and I'd have recognized the Blobbit's eyes and mouth!  But I'll bet you Friday Fictioneers saw this contrived ending coming a mile away."

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yeah, this is kind of your standard issue "wild creature or alien unexpectedly turns out to eat people" story.  I think it's registered as Lame Storyline No. 37A in the annals of "Friday Fictioneer Desperation," last published Feb, 2013.

But what do you want from me?  I haven't had my laptop in a week. I'm lucky I still remember how to type!  At least you have about 100 other stories to chose from, none of them hopefully mentioning the Blobbit or any fascimile thereof, by clicking here.

"Blobbit!  Blobbit!  Blobbit!"  I gotta say that Hayes was tasty!

  6. Dear Blobbit,

    I love your shameless use of lame story lines. I never saw this one coming.

    Aloha,

    1. Thank you, Doug! I can ride a weak, lame, shameless story line like none other. Even the guy who was eaten was annoyed. But glad you liked.

  7. A real knowing piece. But I missed it. Still a lot to learn, I guess.

    1. Yes, it's a real knowing piece. We'll get together one day over a brew and I'll explain it to you.

  8. Any kin to Lorena Bobbitt? Tell me more about this nightly call. Does that mean he gets up three times a night to go pee?

    1. Who is Lorena Bobbit? Is she some backwoods chick that you used to .....? The nightly call is "Blobbit, Blobbit, Blobbit" when he's eating and maybe peeing also.l Actually I make that sound when I'm peeing as well.

      Delete
    2. No, no, I would never do her. She's the gal who chopped off her husband's pecker.

      Not to brag, but I had an all-nighter last night--meaning I went all night without getting up to pee. Okay, so I am bragging, but an event like this doesn't happen very often.

    1. Unless I have him assuming a new life as a super spy, don't hold your breath.

  12. I thought a Blobbit sounded rather like a frog, but then I do have a twisted imagination. Like you.

    1. I think you may be a little more twisted.

  13. Dear Perry, You are so clever Blobbit. Great writing as usual, Nan

    1. Thanks, Nan. Just for that I will forestall the Blobbit from eating you!

      "BLOBBIT, BLOBBIT, BLOBBIT"

      I failed.

  14. Perry, you're done it again. This was hilarious. Anyone dumb enough to walk right into the Blobbit's lair probably deserves to be eaten. Is Biggins going to go in after him. Please say, "No." Do you really number your jokes? Well done. :D --- Suzanne

    1. Thanks, Suzanne. Yes, I do number my jokes cumulatively from the first one in my career. I am up to 7; I promise 11 will be great! Biggins is here with me now, but we're both thinking about going in.

  15. Was it Peter Blobbitt.
    Did he have a cotton tail?
    Is this some F*** ed up Easter story?

    (And I can't believe you don't know who Lorena Bobbitt is?)

    1. Well, I remember the story but I didn't know the names. I think she just wanted to give him a bris and her hand shook a bit. So he's not Jewish, big deal!

  16. :-) Ahh, Perry, good to know some things never change.

    1. Yes, it's true. Critics have hailed me as "the Master of Contrived Endings." In my next story I'm having a guy suddenly realize he loves a girl who's on a plane for Europe and he'll run after her and stop the plane and they'll both profess their love and kiss. I am good!
