end of the world

FOR THE BIRDS

This episode is fowl.  It is all about the feathered fiends who frolic in the unfriendly skies.  You guessed it.  This one is for the birds.

Charlie has an avian anthology in store for you.  First up, we find ourselves between a ROC AND A HARD PLACE.  Next, you never know what those crafty cockatiels will pick up in DUBIOUS MIMICRY.  Lastly, it’s a feather or a fabulous fowl that leads to fearsome folly in BUT SHE MEANT WELL.

Now, it’s time to take flight.  At least until you can roost again in the Circus of the Unknown.

IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT

All good things must come to an end, ladies and gentlemen.  CreepyGram and the Mourning Show examines this eventuality in a trio of totally true tales today.  Stories that show how the civilization of man crumbles like a sandcastle at high tide.  As they say, life’s a beach.

There are many ways the world may end.  First on that list is the porcine apocalypse.  Yes, it’s all reflected IN A PIG’S EYE.  Zombies have long been the culprit on the way things go down.  But what if it isn’t just the rising undead but an unhealthy dependence on technology that contributes to the end of times?  Find out how that looks in OPERATION RAZOR WIRE.  Thirdly, another implausible force of finality.  Light and fluffy FOAM takes over.  No, it ain’t those scrubbing bubbles.  This is something worse.

Charlie Barker will return next time.  Assuming, of course, that the world doesn’t end before then.  If it doesn’t, please come back to the Circus of the Unknown.

POST APOCALYPSO

It’s the end of the world as we know it.  Charlie Barker examines what could be or will be in three tales of the end of times.  The apocalypse arrives at the circus today.  What happens in the post apocalyptic nightmare that follows?

In THE BOTTOM OF THE SIXTH EVENT, a subterranean baseball player warms up to pitch as the world unravels.  Next,  THE POST-APOCALYPTIC PSYCHIATRIST offers to help a young woman who fears the end of the world.  Finally, it’s a great BIRTHDAY SURPRISE as the last man on earth gets a birthday balloon bouquet.  Now, who was left to send it?

If we’re still around on Thursday, come back to visit the sideshow yet again.  Char has some more he want to show you in the Circus of the Unknown.  Or don’t.  It’s not like the world is going to end if you don’t.  Or will it?
