Symbolic

by on February 13, 2015

Rob needed a symbol. Superheroes had to have symbols. He would strike fear into the hearts of the evil-doers plaguing his city. He swore to assume the appearance of the first creature to appear in his dorm room.  He hoped for a bat.

But then his roommate Sam walked in with a leftover oyster from a university dinner.

Oyster Man struck fear in no one’s hearts.

This was written for the Chimera 66 writing challenge at Grammar Ghoul Press. Thanks for reading!

  1. HAHAHAHA! OysterMan. Good one; a real pearl!

  2. Haha! Yeah, I think he needs to keep looking for a symbol. On the other hand, if he could hook up with Tabasco Girl, they would be a great team. Made me laugh out loud. Well done!

  3. Poor Oyster Man. I’m sure he’d frighten people with shellfish allergies. Maybe?

    • He’s got that going for him, at least. Now, what percentage of the criminal underworld belongs to the shellfish allergy community, well…

  4. Haha, but I bet he could make a slippery getaway 🙂
