Black Coats

“There are no doctors in black lab coats,” the doctor said. The patient looked behind the doctor at the man in the black lab coat causing the fat patient to moan and scream. “You were bit… by something. We gave you morphine. You’re hallucinating. That’s all.” A thin man in a black lab coat approached the patient’s bed
“Please, doctor,” the patient said. “Please stop him.” The doctor looked tired. He shook his head and left the room. The thin man in the black lab coat smiled.

The man in the dark red pickup waited until the child was in the middle of the street. He hit him then. “He is not human,” the man said. In his rear view mirror he saw a small gray mass claw its way from the street. He heard a woman on the sidewalk scream. The man put his dark red pickup in reverse.

Out of Service

“Sir, there is no elevator,” the bellhop said.
“Impossible,” the man said. “I saw my wife and boy step in.” The bellhop pulled the man away from the lobby into a dark corner.
“Gone, sir, gone. My condolences.” The man grabbed the bellhop by his collar and threw him into the wall. “There was an elevator, sir. Unholy thing. They’d go in, and it would not appear again until they’d starved to death or dehydrated. Their fingers turned to stumps of dried blood from clawing at the door. We destroyed the elevator and dry walled over the doors.”
“I saw them step in.”
“I know, sir, I know.” The bellhop said. “My condolences.”

Doublet Game Solution: Black into White









This one took me awhile to come up with. I also couldn't decide if I should use "shite" or not. Luckily there's not an international rules society for doublets.

Doublet Game: Black into White

Can you turn black into white

Premise 1: If refrigerators existed, enough people would carelessly leave them open, and cause the world to descend into a new ice age. 

Premise 2: The world is getting warmer, not colder. 

Conclusion: There are no refrigerators.

The Executioner

His television came on at night and spoke in static. It flashed and whispered the addresses of rapists, of the drunk driver who killed that girl whom justice never found, of fathers who beat their children. He could not sleep. The same names kept coming. So he killed. All of them in search of his lost sleep. But new names came. The wicked did not sleep and neither did their executioner.
