I liked this story a lot, short and creative. Seemed like a horror story and read like one till the end. Very cool to see what can be done with such few words.

Crikey! This was hilarious! I loved the surprise ending. I almost balked at reading this because I'm not one for gore, but I'm glad I stuck it through. Great use of flash fiction writing succinct-ness. (Is that a word?)

Congratulations on winning the Flash Fiction contest. I admired the drama and sound effects and the unexpected ending. You certainly had me going with the details of mutilation! Well done- Joan

Impeccable writing, Humpwhistle; great, grisly story. I take it we won't be hearing your recipe on the food channel. Congratulations on your win. You deserve it.

This is a great flash fiction and hearty congratulations on your win. I twigged early in the story that there was going to be a 'catch' but it didn't detract at all from the pleasure of reading this.

Hello, Humpwhistle :)
I loved this almost as much as actual coleslaw!
Enjoyable for horror and food enthusiasts alike - you wrote it well (and I almost got a recipe out of it too!)
I love the head wobbling on the sacrificial oaken block - great imagery!
A fun an entertaining read - Good luck in the contest.
Best wishes, Debra :)

    Thank you, Debra. I'm a big fan of coleslaw, too. Horror is not my thing, but the 'head' misdirection was too good to pass up.
    Actually, that is my recipe--but I add toasted caraway seeds, and sometimes substitute half-sour pickle juice for the vinegar.
    Glad you enjoyed. Thank you again. Peace, Lee

    Sounds tasty :) Hungry now!

This is excellent and very, very clever. I like the way you begin this little grisly tale. It does appear that this man is lopping off heads. You keep us engaged and in suspense until the very end. I applaud you Humpwhistle on presenting and bringing forth this well written poem. Very well done!

OK, I've been away too long and this is the first FS post I've read in well over a year, maybe longer. So, I let my guard down and you suckered me right in. I was in a "lab" somewhere with that white coated head basher, thinking maybe he was doing some medical research, albeit not too neatly. Then, my thoughts turned to disgust. Then, to thinking I should make some coleslaw to accompany a nice piece of salmon for dinner tonight. I should have known, remembered, that you would take me on a delightfully diversionary path to find the truth and the humor. Very well done!

    Thank you, Judy, and welcome back! You've been away too long. I expect you'll be much more difficult to gull next time. I caught you when your guard was down. But I'm delighted you enjoyed . . . and I haven't spoiled coleslaw for you. You got any of that salmon left? A little fresh dill on the salmon, and some in the coleslaw ...

    So good to hear from you. And thanks so much for the 6. Peace, Lee

    Dill on both - you betcha!

Really solid work on this piece, Lee. Quite a bang flash story that I didn't see coming. Good luck in the contest.

Unfulfilled, he --Not that it really matters but there is an extra space here. Word count looks good.

Take care,
Russell

    Thanks so much, Russell. I'm glad I snuck this one past you. One never knows if you're giving away too much, or not enough. Glad you enjoyed. Thanks again, Lee
