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.

STITCHES IN TIME

Hello, all you clock watchers.  The circus is back.  The sideshow is open for business.  Let’s just hope you have time to do it justice.

Time is the operative word today, ladies and gentlemen.  The three stories for today all have to do with time and our perception of it.  First, what would happen if your memories were all scripted for the sake of some ulterior motive?  We examine that in MEMORY REIMAGINED.  The EERIE EDITION give headlines of tomorrow – but why do they all have to be so grim?  Third, it’s time to SPRING FORWARD.  Here, you set your clocks forward an hour and your life back to nothing.

My, but time flies.  It seems like you just got here and now the sideshow is closing.  There’s always next time.

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?

FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED

Char is sure glad you returned to his sideshow of the surreal.  This time around, we are giving you fair warning in three fables plucked from the bowels of alternate reality.  Tales that will give you an example of what not to do.

Another “State of Fear” is first on the list.  We visit South Carolina today as we warn you DON’T LET THE BOO HAG RIDE YA.  Then it’s an out of this world tale that tells us not to attempt to deny fate in JONAH’S LAMENT.  Lastly, two young children discover that THINGS WOULD BE DIFFERENT once they figure out just what happened to them.

Thursday awaits when the circus returns.  Charlie Barker will be touting his usual fare.  Make sure you’re there.
