  • El Chupacabra

    Ayer, mi perro desaparecio. No deje la puerta abierta y no habia un ojero en la tierra—simplemente desaparecio. Subi a mi bicicleta y busque en las calles por mi amigo tan fiel. “Panzon! Panzon! Donde estas?” De repente, el anciano qu...

  • EotB: Last Man Sitting

    At this point I considered breakfast. You’d be surprised how quickly SPAM loses its novelty. After 3 months of the stuff, I was more inclined to build a fort out of the remaining cans (87) than open one and brave the pink horrors within. But I still ...

  • EotB - The last Bacon-Ranch

    I was puzzled as to its origins. I couldn’t decide whether it had been a normal piggy, somehow protected from the bombs but eventually mutated, or – and this is where skepticism and science-fiction appear – if it had beenin the grocery’s i...
