I'm participating in Spooktoberfest.  A thank you and a handful of black and orange jellybeans to Jackie Felger of Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand of Entertaining Interests for hosting! Here are the rules:  The flash fiction piece cannot be any longer than 300 words and it must contain these five words: cobweb(s), cauldron(s), jack-o-lantern(s), ghost(s) and razor(s). 

Weekly Wrap-up of TV Highlights on Channel Spook

Voiceover: On The Bleary Springer Show, two pumpkins face off when they find out their "pimp-kin daddy" boyfriend has been playing the patch.

Footage Shown: Two Pumpkins with straw hair are oozing out of their bright sequined halter tops, denim mini-skirts and cowboy boots. They had just jumped out of their seats and are now up in each other's faces. 
"Your face looks like a jack-o-lantern carved with arthritic hands."

"Your face is fit for a scarecrow."  

Pieces of straw fly, heads roll, and pumpkin puree splatters across the screen.

Voiceover: On Witch Chef, a couple of judges discuss a chef's entree of spider crepes.

Footage shown: A panel of judges are seated at a long table smacking their lips. 

"The pieces of cobweb left on the spider was an oversight and it compromised the textural competence of this dish. 

"But I am impressed with how well the cast iron cauldron cooked the bug juice broth- it was buttery yet as light as a ghost."

Voiceover: On The Werewolf Bachelorette, a rejected suitor thinks aloud as he rides away in the limousine.

Footage shown: A suited man sits alone in a moving limousine.  

Rejected Suitor: "Really bummed I didn't get a rose. She was so warm and fuzzy whenever I held her. I probably shouldn't have made that joke about getting her a razor for the next full moon."

...and that's my flash fiction. Happy Halloween, everyone!
