FEMME FATALE

Charlie Barker has an eye socket for the girls today, my friends.  It’s ladies day at the circus.  All women get in free.  Now, getting out…that’s another story.

Why should men have all the fun?  Murder and the macabre aren’t a man’s sole domain.  Case in point is THE GODDESS OF DEATH.  Next, the matriarchal head of a crime syndicate battles the undead trying to prove that you DON’T MESS WITH MAMA KESS.   And then, it’s a futuristic fable of a time when men are the endangered species.  Trouble is, female DESPOTS are running things now.

Next time, Sideshow of the Surreal showcases the unexpected as we wrap up August.  Please come back then.  That is, if you dare.

TASTY TERRORS

If Charlie Barker had a tongue in that boney old skull of his, you can bet it would be planted firmly in cheek.  But there are better uses for tongues, ladies and gentlemen.  In a literal sense, it is a matter of taste.

On the menu for this time are a trio of tasty terrors.  First up, it’s a monstrous good time as two fantastic creatures debate the merits of human cuisine.  More precisely, humans AS cuisine.  You can bet that it TASTES LIKE CHICKEN.  Next, how do you spice up a vampire’s bloody awful diet?  Find out in DELIVERY SYSTEM.  Then, we finish it all off with dessert because THE ICE CREAM MAN IS COMING.

Once you’ve filled your gullet, it’s time for the sideshow to close.  Fear not, there will be more treats next time.  It’s just too bad old Charlie didn’t get his fill.  Yeah, he doesn’t have the guts for it.

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?
