The Tale Of The Reaper


“You're either quick or you're dead around here -- he's both.”


Wilbur Junior swallowed hard, his eyes narrowing, too afraid to speak.


“They say he rides with the Devil, down in Hell. Riding a horse of bones, a six shooter on his hip. When he comes, and you hear that hammer ****, there ain't no time for running. Ain't no time for nothing, except death.”


The candles flickered and died. Darkness entombed them.

Judge ROY BEAN

"What day is this?" a sleepy Colorado Kid asked from his cell. "The day Judge Bean comes to hang your sorry behind" answered the deputy.

Judge Bean heard the charges then questioned the Kid. "You robbed the bank and shot two citizens, correct?" "Yup", said the Kid, "the safe only had eight dollars, so I shot the manager". "What about the other guy?" asked the Judge
"He was a LAWYER", the Kid said !

"CASE DISMISSED".

Fair Fight, Now

He's nervous, I reckon.

Should be. No one better than me. All in the reflexes, ain't it.

Sun's gonna appear. Any second. My hat's low, coat wrapped tight, ready for it. Ain't touching me, no how.

'E's got one eye on the horizon. The idiot. Can't shoot 'fore we're told.

“Sun up!”

I draw.

Front of 'is coat explodes open.

Why, the cheatin'-!

You can't beat a guy holding twelve guns!

The Yellow Rows of Texas


The fence –- gone. Wire cut, posts ripped up. Corn cattle-trampled in the dirt.

“Them ranchers ain’t ever gonna let us farm here, Pa. We gotta find us another place.”

“Over my dead body,” says Pa.


Pa dies that night. We buries him in the cornfield like we was told. Then put in more posts, string up more wire, plant more corn.


When the cattlemen come back, Pa’s waiting. In the cattle-trampling corn.

Bonanza


“Itzawl Mine!”

“Sez who?”

“That sign,” said West.

“Where’s De Gap?”

“Tunnelling through from his mine.”

“Unbelievable,” said Artemus. “Little green men.”

“They come in peace.”

“In a pod.”

“There’s our inside man!” said West.

“Why’s he emerald?”

“The grass is greener on the other side...?”

“Hola,” said Tharg.

“Well?” asked West.

“Drier than Mars.”

“They accept? A dollar a day?”

“Yes,” said Tharg.

Artemus smiled. The best saucer profits west of the Mississippi.

The Real Danger Came from the North



'Witch of the West, you have been found guilty of crimes against the Frontier Town of Munchkin, including, but not limited to, the causation of drought by magical means, thereby leading to starvation and death. You are sentenced to death'

Elphaba raised her arms, whereby all could see ripples undulating beneath her skin.

'Fools! I’m not your Wicked Witch! But I will save you.'

The violent undulations erupted.

*Silence*

Dissipation.

Dispersion.

And the rains began.
