Flash Fiction #121 (Exactly 121 Words): Good News for the Human Race

The musical combo Sparks once released a song called “Tryouts for the Human Race” and an album called Balls, though neither product has inspired the following fiction-related content from Matthews Creative Industries, a subsidiary of Stinky Sam’s Used Llama Emporium.

“Y’wanna know why the Democrats are gonna lose big this election day?”

“Crime? Inflation?”

“Nope. They’re too freaking nice. Republicans, on the other hand, are mean as hell. Even when they look nice, they always act like they wanna stomp your balls into the ground, no matter who you are. But voters don’t mind. If you’re mean, you usually have power, and voters love power. They respect power. No PC crap, just punch down and punch hard.”

“Sounds a little like S&M.”

“It’s a lot like S&M.”

“Right. So how about you? Do you like having your balls stomped into the ground?”

“No. I wanna keep them healthy. I might have children someday.”

“Well, that’s good news for the human race.”
