Tiny Tuesday – “Caught, Red-Handed”

24 Jul

Morgan Freeman pulled up to the pump, practicing voices. “The beauty of the polar bear,” he was saying, “will soon be gone from the earth.”

His hybrid’s cap was open. “It is man’s reliance on fossil fuels which will spell doom for this majestic sentinel of the ice.”

A monstrous black Escalade honked at him. A wheelchair rolled away from the next pump, and he locked eyes with Dick Cheney.

Cheney grimaced, recoiling, a hobo caught eating trash. Freeman reached out to him, eyes wet, smile on his lips. Cheney growled.

“But…the bears,” Freeman said, and Cheney sped away laughing.
