Well, it would have been a more effective BOOM!, if the gun had actually done something rather than just click.
I looked at the gun, feeling mildly bewildered, when Laverne started laughing and dropping a handful of bullets to the dust.
“Saw that one coming didn’t I, Jody?” he said. Pulling out his own gun from somewhere behind him. “Now, what where you saying about the shortage of food?”
“Uh, only that with the two of us now alone we need to band together to protect our families and supplies and, um, it will be much more efficient if the two of us scavenged together rather than on our own.”
“Nice try, doesn’t win the banana. Okay,” he pointed his gun at me. “Now it’s my turn to inherit your perfect life, loving family, great friends, all that now completely useless money and a lifestyle I’ve only ever dreamed about and can never have anymore.”
“Hey, Laverne, can we talk about this a little bit?”
“Is it a four letter word with B, M! and OO in the middle?”
“Then, sorry,” he grinned.
