Extremely short fiction by Lucian Janik

Shirley the Silly Squirrel

"Dad is in jail."

"Again? What happened this time?"

"He crashed a cartoonist birthday party."

"They put him in jail for that?"

"He stole their piñata."

"Okay ..."

"And he assaulted one of the cartoonists with a wheel of cheese."

"Cheese is not a weapon."

"He hates cartoonists."

"I think he is still bitter about the squirrel."
