Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for September 14, 2002
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The Outer Reaches of Plot Twists Please don't tell your friends the shocking beginning, middle and ending! Host: Submitted for your approval: Wes Shelby. An ordinary man about to undergo a record-setting number of reality-bending and utterly shocking plot twists! Wes: Something about my life feels very spooky, slowly paced and poorly lit. BUT WHAT IS IT? Wes: Argh! So that was a LIVING DREAM I had, while robots harvest my body! Wes: But wait! The lighting is still creepy and tone is somber and foreboding! WHY? Aha! It's all coming back to me! Wes: I'm a DISEMBODIED BRAIN being electronically stimulated into believing it's a formerly deluded POD-PERSON! Wes: But...could there be yet ANOTHER startling revelation? Ah, it's obvious now -- I'M DEAD! Host: Shocking? Yes, but NOW this GHOST-BRAIN must wake up to the realization that its FALSE-REALITY SHOCKS were actually mere illusions...! CONJURED FIGMENTS of a hack screenwriter's limited imagination! Computer: Good lord! I'm FICTIONAL! The End?
