The HBDC Story Meme

Today's post is going to be a little different, boys and girls. Today, I'll be participating in the Humor Bloggers First Annual Story Meme, created and conceived by none other than Spaz over at The Mind of Spaz. The deal is this: There's a story. Each of the participants in the meme will contribute a small amount to the story and then pass it on. The resulting gelatinous mess will then be hoisted high in the middle of the town square and subsequently hanged for indecency and witchcraft. I think that's the basic gist of it. Ok, no, I've been told that's incorrect. The final story will be published on HumorBloggers.com. Without further ado, here is the story's humble beginnings, as written by Spaz himself:

Wanda was always confused. Not about work, because she loved what she was doing. Not about her friends or her hobbies,because her social life was great. It wasn't her looks either, because she was tall, lean and had an absolutely perfect rack, the best money could buy. No, Wanda was confused because she has a penis.


And so here we go.

It had come wrapped in several layers of newspaper, stuffed into a tube typically reserved for delivering posters. It wasn't just any penis, either. Judging from its length (11.2 inches), scent (formaldahyde and tree sap), and coloring (burnt sienna), it had belonged to T. horridus and dated back to the late Cretaceous. In layman's terms, it was the penis of a Triceratops. Standing in her driveway, watching as the UPS guy hopped back into his truck and flipped down the visor, Wanda said something she'd thought many times before, but never said aloud.

"It's smaller than I thought it would be."

Venom, of Venom, Secrets, & Lies is next up, so make sure you head over to her blog to see how she continues this timeless tale.

I've been waiting all morning for this and you didn't disappoint! I cant wait to see the next installment

Dave said...

What a great concept! I am not a member of HB-ers, but I think I will follow the story nevertheless--while simultaneously working on the accompanying screenplay that I will ceremoniously pitch to movie execs as a product of my own work. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. *cough*

Phillipia said...

I love this idea...and count on you, Shawn, to take it in this direction.

Soda and Candy said...

I've seen a meme like this before, but that was an excellent twist!

ReformingGeek said...

Love it!

Shawn said...

Dizz: Should be pretty fun to watch.

Dave: If it sells, I want a cameo at the very least.

Phillipia: That direction being down.

Soda and Candy: Nuh uh, Spaz was the first person to think of it, ever.

Reforming: Thanks. :)

Me-Me King said...

Triceratops?!? This is so bitchin', Shawn.....great job!

Mind of Spaz said...

DOOD.

You took it and you BROUGHT IT.

That was AWESOME.

I'm impressed.

This story is going to rock.

Vic said...

Excellent! I love the twist you put on it. Waiting for Venom...:)

Shawn said...

Me-Me King: Sometimes a story just calls out for a Triceratops.

Spaz: Cool, I'm glad you liked it! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what happens.

Vic: Venom's up! She's brought some class and intrigue into the tale.

otin said...

It took me a minute to figure out what was going on, this is my first time here. It is a great idea! Is that 11.2 inches flacid? If so, maybe that explains Wandas dissappointment! LMAO!

Dave said...

Great start - shark. Not sure what i'm going to do with a triceratops penis when it comes to my entry......

brookeamanda said...

LOVE IT! Can't wait to read the finished story!! I like exclamtion points!

Shawn said...

Otin: I don't even know she's disapointed. Just confused.

Dave: I would be more concerned if you knew right away what to do with it.

Brookeamanda: Me too!!1!!

Lady Sarcasm said...

LOL! Right on man, you did a great job. :)

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Sounds like Wanda got a very rare, mummified, focil penis. Did they account for shrinkage back in the stone age?

Shawn said...

LS: Thanks, Chica!

CDD: I don't know, my science classes never covered that topic (regrettably).

Wanda said...

You just better not freakin ruin my life, that's all I have to say. And thanks for the t. horridus because I was about to be really annoyed if I had to be a hermaphrodite in this story.

Shawn said...

Wanda: Don't thank me yet. There's still some twisted bloggers who have yet to have their way with you.

Ann's Rants said...

Shawn, I know...and I'm askeered to see what I must post on my blog. Thanks for stopping by. Wonder if that means its my turn.

Tina said...

I LOVE where you took the penis element. I can't wait to read more!

Shawn said...

Ann: No, no, there's quite a few to go first.

Tina: What an unlikely sentence, lol.

bearmancartoons said...

What was the T doing with his penis before he died that it smells of tree sap?

Shawn said...

bearman: Some things are better off lost to history.

Jenn Thorson said...

Ah, you are a clever fellow! Nice job coming up with that creative twist, Shawn.

dani c said...

So Rocks !!!!!

lilaphase said...

I think I'm scared?

George said...

Wow. I've gotta read the rest of this story.

Shawn said...

Jenn: It's all from my neighbor, Bob Satan.

Dani: Thanks.

lilaphase: Oh, you should be.

George: It's only gotten crazier.
