Photo finish Friday: “To boldly go … where the winds blow”

Young Captain Kirk battles a Marshmallow Monster.

Young Captain Kirk battles a Marshmallow Monster.

In the next installment of the Star Trek re-boot, a very young Captain Kirk battles a giant Marshmallow Monster in a sailor suit, only to defeat it by kicking the air out of its sails. Barely escaping with his boats still intact, Kirk then faces the giant Balloon Entity of Tritium Two. The title of this movie, Star Trek: Air Apparent, features fifty aliens blown in from all corners of the Milky Way. The exact release date hasn’t been established, but plans are to release it on a Winds-day.

Photo finish Friday: “Half baked”

The fortune cookie may have not been half-baked, but his fortune was.

The fortune cookie may have not been half-baked, but his fortune was.

Private Eye Sumpter finished his General Tso’s chicken and opened his fortune cookie only to find half a slip of paper inside with the top half of these words printed across it: “How about another Fortune?”

How about another Fortune, indeed.

It was a clue, but Sumpter did not know what to.

Photo finish Friday: “Heat wave”

Some things you shouldn't let slide.

Some things you shouldn’t let slide.

Oh, poor mannequin
let things slip again.
You say because you’re thin
that they just slide.

You stand there headless
and couldn’t regret less
if you create a mess
because of your body pride.

But dear mannequin
though the times are thin
we can’t let you begin
to leave nothing to hide.

So, pull up your bottoms
or starting this autumn
you’ll only flaunt them
in the dumpster outside.

Photo finish Friday: “Look up”

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a lamppost.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a lamppost.

Photo finish Friday: “Chicken”

A special delicacy, if you can stomach it.

Chicken

by David E. Booker

Boneless Skinless Children’s Thighs.
Picked up a pack and to my surprise
The taste just hit me right between the eyes:
chicken.

Didn’t matter how I had them made:
Sautéed, fried, or in a marinade.
One small taste did all to persuade:
chicken.

I even tried eleven herbs and spices.
Mixed in rice, lettuce, and tomato slices.
It did not matter what culinary devices:
chicken.

I consulted a cannibal from a foreign land.
Who said such boneless thighs would not stand.
Children were not on his diet plan:
chicken.

Boneless Skinless Children’s Thighs.
I saw the ad right before my own eyes.
I handed the neighbors’ kids over with no good-byes:
chicken.

Photo finish Friday: “Waiting for Dr. Godot….”

The time is now. The place, your doctor's examination room. The reason: your doctor is somewhere else, somewhere in ... The Twilight Zone.
