  • The Porno Theater Usher by Will Steacy: "The boss didn't come, nor did the police, but two creepy guys did and they bought tickets with quick movements and looked around after they got their ticket to see if anyone was watching them. I was."


"I had a hillbilly neighbor once who didn't pay his electric bill. When they shut off his power he pulled his meter, did something, replaced his meter and restored his power. The power company shut off his power at the pole. He shimmied up the pole and re-set the breaker. The power company took his meter. He stole mine. I called the power company, they called the sheriff. When he got out of jail he apologized and gave me a pig."
