Flash Fiction #224


PHOTO PROMPT © Jeff Arnold


No-one had ever actually died because of eating the “I’m Game”® sausages, from Rudi’s little plant, made with meat that he bought from hunters, and the nearby petting zoo.

He was very careful about the production hygiene, but perhaps less so about what went into his products; reindeer, moose, venison, goats, turkeys, rabbits…. perhaps a touch of horse-meat…. 50/50…. one rabbit, one horse.

Someone really shot a unicorn??! He thought those were mythical. He wondered what it tasted like, probably too sweet. He’d have to check, and spice accordingly. Well, whatever. Into the grinder it goes. Oh, look! Free publicity.

        Yes, as in that. I had a Chinese/American Combo Restaurant (actual name not withheld) where my family would get together on Monday nights. One day it was on the news because the dumpster was discovered to be full of dog and cat carcasses. Seems I’ve eaten much fefe. Although the idea of that is disgusting to me, the family there made great food.


  2. Yikes! I’m not game where the I’m game sausages are concerned! Great take on the prompt. 🙂

    It’s amazing how so many of this week’s stories are both gruesome and funny. Great job 🙂

    If the meat is fresh…

      A young man takes his lady friend to a very upscale restaurant when he can first afford it. Unused to any place that doesn’t ask, “You want fries with that?” she cannot make up her mind what to order.
      The poufy waiter suggests, “How about a young squab, drowned in a ramekin of crème gravy?”
      She replies, “Don’t tell me how you killed it! Just bring it.” 😉 😆

  6. So glad that I’m a vegan. All that sweetness and sprinkles from unicorns would surely spoil the mix.

    Are you sure Rudi isn’t friends with The Tiger King?


  8. Hey, meat is meat, right?


    • Archon's Den says:

      Well, mostly! I’ve never knowingly been served dog, cat or horse. I don’t think that I would have trouble with the donor, only the feel of it in my mouth. Chewy fat and gristle, and rubbery things like snails and calamari make me gag. I’ve had emu burgers and roast moose.. Ground-up meat for sausages or burgers seems okay. 🙂

    One way to dish up another virus? Maybe his one will give us magical powers….
