Trifextra #65 – #UndeadWorldProblems

So, the fine editors over at Trifecta gave us free reign to write this week’s Trifextra on whatever I want!  I just have to use at least one of these confangledCompound Modifierslike “fine-toothed” or “hot-buttered”.  But the benefit is that they only count as ONE word!  Isn’t the English language confusing terrific?! 😉

As Always… 33 word limit will be strictly enforced.

I dub this entry: #UndeadWorldProblems

*********************************************************

The well-dressed man and the one-armed zombie wrestle in pitch-black darkness. 

His wing-tipped shoe connects with the zombie’s flame-engulfed skull.

I wonder…

How does one clean an Oxford covered in tar-like, char-broiled brains?

*editor’s note: I incorrectly labled this entry as Trifextra #64.  It is actually #65.  The writer regrets the error and has been sufficiently flogged.  Thank you for your understanding.

    I guess that’s not mentioned in “Hints from Heloise”. Walking away from a zombie fight should be reward in itself. lol

      You know I had to Googled who the heck Heloise was and yes, she really needs to include a section on Zombie etiquette for situations like this!

      But hey, nobody said you have to go thru the zombie apocalypse looking less than perfect! 🙂

    Reblogged this on The Cheese Whines and commented:
    Uber coolness!

    Award for most compound modifiers in a unique and cheeky well written story. Didn’t know Heloise was still around.

    • lennygore says:

      I sure didn’t even know who the heck Heloise was to start, but I’m sure Miss Manners has to have a section on Zombie Ettiquette somewhere…

      When addressing a Zombie, always aknowledge their former humanity by calling it Sir or Madam. Then apologize courteously before separating their head from their body with your weapon.

    Love it! Especially the flame-engulfed skull. Great use of the prompt!

    I love a man in wing-tips, and I loved this too-for all its flame-engulfed tar-like char-broiled brain goodness;)

    With gloves, hopefully 😉 Ooky piece haha

    I’m not sure if a well-dressed man and a one-armed zombie is a far fight, but if the man gets away, I’d say just ditch the shoes and get a new pair. Maybe running shoes, in case the zombie finds him again 🙂

    • lennygore says:

      It’s quite fair I think!

      And yeah, you’d think he would switch out those Oxford wing-tips for some functional Steel Toe boots or something! But hey, the man’s got taste! 🙂

  9. Ha ha! I love it. Love the comments, too. And yes, the English language is certainly confusing. 🙂
