Flash Fiction (a Hundred Words or Fewer) #25: Calvin Praying

You know those bootleg car-window stickers in which Calvin, from Calvin and Hobbes, prays before the cross?  Well, my cousin, Milo the Millennial (his beard extends past his clavicles), owns a pickup whose back-window sticker shows Calvin praying before Cthulhu.  Amazingly, no one in this heavily-red (and heavily-redneck) area has threatened to whup Milo’s ass.  Either Cthulhu has lots of followers, or a well-developed sense of irony can win over even the most rabid reactionary, or (my choice) people don’t consider Milo’s ass worth whupping.  He does look homeless, and the homeless can get away with demonic worship, I guess.
