The Ultimate Failure Of Graphic Design

Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

“What is that thing?”

“What thing?”

That.”

“That’s a stop sign.”

“You sure?”

“It’s red. It’s octagonal. It says ‘STOP’ in white letters.”

“Not like any stop sign I’ve ever seen.”

“You know that the kids attach explosive toy caps to the bottoms of your shoes when you sleep?”

“They do?”

“Yes. What did you think all that noise was?”

“I thought I was walking real fast and VC were shooting at me.”

“No.”

“I better call the cops.”

“Why?”

“I told ‘em VC were shooting at me.”
