Cirkus Insanium #3


See them?
Longlong Josiebelle’s a midget, works the freak tent, stagename Howlin' Ladywolf. Frightens kids, howlin’ realistic like a wolf, Josiebelle.
Matchstick Marty? People pay a dollar to fight him. If they knocks him down inside three rounds, they wins five dollars. See his wooden leg? He twists it into the ground and nobody ever knocks him over!
Well, Josiebelle and Matchstick they got wedded.
Funny thing is, when they argue, they fights like dogs. Matchstick can’t get down at Josiebelle, and she kicks shit out of his good leg until he’s the one howlin'.
He’s howlin’ now, see him?

    LOL, this is very funny and left me smiling. I particularly love Matchstick Marty, Drew! You've hit paydirt with the concept for this series. :-)

    Yes, I think so lol. Once I'd done the first I couldn't help but think of Ray Bradbury and those characters in his stories where travelling fairs and circuses play a big part.
    Thanks again for commenting Horrorshow, glad you enjoyed it.
