Ms. Congeniality

Art by Rob Goldstein
Eat Us

Joe is soft around the middle but that
doesn’t bother Pattie.

She nibbles some bits and waits for him
to finish.

Pattie scrolls through the evening news:

“Today in an action reminiscent of the worst
excesses of the 1960’s, a feminist icon burst
into flames!”

“Oh me, oh my,” Patti sighs, “She’s so nuts
and so obnoxious!”

Joe watches T.V.

The Ms. America Pageant is over;
Ms. Arkansas is crowned.

“I will use my beauty to heal the World!”
she sobs.

The audience goes wild with sincerity.

Tiny red lights roam the crowd as paid
snipers randomly shoot people for
emphasis.

As Ms. Congeniality stalks across the stage to
snatch her check from the emcee Pattie
pulls a knife on Joe.

“You’re such a cynic I could
kill you!” She says.

And she does.
