October News Blues

As soon as October hit the town so did a Horrible terrible news. Someone was told by someone, who got this news from someone who was told by this someone that  3rd of October was going to be the scariest spookiest night

That was all that was said on the first of this month, some one tweeted, some re-tweeted, some blogged. some re-blogged and soon it became bigger than what was said in the beginning…..

By morning of 3rd October of it was end of the world news,

3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
But Julien was angry not scared that day
she had just spent so much on her wedding gown!!
some took all that they could and hid under their bed,
some took refuge in their wine cellar and drank whole night.
( it was their tribute to their collection )
some drove as fast as they could to get out of the town and reach someplace safe, but landed up in jail for a night
( it is the safest place on earth, ask the Politicians)
some hid in the grave yard ( brilliant,
cos none of the 300 evil venom spewing monsters would have ever looked there)
some decided to stay in their cars, some on the roofs, some in the tree house
and some just ran and ran and ran till they could run no more (and broke all the world records)
Then there was this rock band which was not popular at all, they played their music on the street’s whole night
(The idea was to get famous like the musicians of Titanic)
This must be the reason why the town was spared that night, said someone later (some one is jealous of the band )
And then there was little Kipkomp who painted his mom’s favourite sheet black and wrapped around him to become invisible
(I am sure his mom got a bad heart burn that night
but it was last day on earth kind of situation so she kept mum)
3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
some tried keeping calm and helping others
But the brave spent the night with cuss, fuss and frown
Everyone prayed and asked god to spare their lives in exchange for all the good they had done or thought and wished the scary things attacked someone else, like the politician they didn’t like  or the one who knew their secret or someone who they thought was not worthy of life at all.
[Angels were busy shredding wishes like these that night]
Anyways so nothing happened that night and morning of 4th everyone found out, it was all just a rumour. People made fun of each other and claimed they knew all about  it from the very beginning and were playing along to see how far others would go.
3oo demons who were aliens who were zombies
with venom of pit viper were going to attack the town
Jim was just pretending to be scared
But Mr X , oh he is such a clown!
So next day when the entire town was busy with doing nothing good, our Little Kipkomp was trembling with fear, for him the rumour had become truth and a scary thing was coming for her favourite sheet which was now painted black. He was praying with all he had for at least one alien attack.
( Please God help,how many times does a kid ask you for an alien or a monster attack
if you help me today I  promise I will listen to mom and not draw  on the walls)
I am so glad it turned out to be a rumour and everyone is safe .
BTW did you hear what they are saying about 6th of this month…All the spirits evil and bad…..

About Soma Mukherjee

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

  1. The nature of rumor is known to all.

  2. Sometimes it just might be helpful to see those goblins…just once in awhile!

  3. Phew! Did you hear my relieved sigh…6th is over and done with and we are all safe, Soma! Yippieeee!…

    Helloooo… Soma,are you there?

    Oh my, did the monsters gobble you up?! 🙄


    😆 😆

  4. You are so very creative…your short stories provide so much laughter, and they also place you in a league of your own. No one does it better than you Soma! I loved it have a wonderful and blessed day!

  5. Oh my! Beautifully creative piece! I love the accompanying cartoon too. Great post, Somkritya. Keep up the good work! 🙂

  7. Haha, this post reminded me of The Telephone Game I played in high school school or so! It’s the 8th for me, and nothing too strange happened? Maybe people are just trying to start something because there’s no Freaky Friday on the 13th that can happen this October. :p

  8. Not had a reply back from you! I’d love to reblog this and drive some of my readers your way but would like your permission to do so. I thought this was a great post! 🙂

  9. Another lovely, hilarious post Soma… I don’t know how you do it! As someone else above has said, a book is in order here!

    I agree with Androgoth you ARE getting more wicked & funny by the minute!! This was great – but I so much enjoyed the cartoon, too. Oh spare me, bear me! 🙂 Loved this!

  11. Loved, loved, loved this! In fact I may re-blog it on my own blog this week if I have your permission! I feel the urge to go around spreading rumours now!

  12. How ever bad October 6th will be, you must survive it so you can make it to the 22nd, which will make up for anything and everything that you will have had to endure.

  13. Soma you are getting more and more wicked and incredibly funny by the minute, I think that you are becoming such a wonderfully ghoulish and excitingly giddy ghoul, I mean giggy cool Vamp, yes definitely a Vamp so how about a nice candle lit evening in My Gothic Realm, don’t you worry I have given the Zombies the night off we don’t want them pinching our wine gums or running off with someone’s nightie.

    Noooooo not yours I meant the Banshees, not Siouxsie and the Banshees either, I am meaning just a Banshee, after all they might look wicked in a nightie but without one they are too naughty for some, of course if you fancy a bit more, I mean a bite more to eat then how about some pancakes with fudge topping?

    Deb makes these for Fraz so you will be in for a wondrously enjoyable treat if you say yes 🙂 Yes to the pancake supper I mean, I think that I had better return to my Space before I say something naughty 🙂 lmao

    This is a really great posting Soma, a giggle from start to finish 😉

    Andro xxx

    • ha ha ha ha Andro you are so wickedly sweet..Thanks for such a lovely heart warming funny word hug
      love ya 🙂

      • Hey Soma babe pass me another chocolate, this one has been got at by that naughty Banshee, the one without her nightie on, wow are they scary in the niff 😦 lol

        Have a wonderful day today Soma
        and thank you for being such a beautiful
        and wicked great friend of mine 🙂 😉

        Andro xxx

  14. You always make me laugh with every post your write. 🙂

  15. Oh, I love how you make me smile and think, then smile some more!

  16. October –jazz—-very nice weekend Soma

  17. Be careful on the 6th….especially if you go out jogging….:)
    I love the month of October! I have to get my decorations up!

  18. Telephone….is that game lost in a day and age of texting?

  19. Hillarious absolutely! Thumbs-up for your creativity 🙂

  20. You are a genius :).

  21. Yeah indeed “help”, agree so much
    you are a wise girl, love your words… 😉

    We don’t listen at each other, not listening what people are saying but only listening what we think they say – when we afterwards tell the stories to others, so we (dis)colour this information with our own assumptions – the less imagination we have, the more imagination we use… 🙂

  22. Your woven tail has my head spinning. 😉 … which caused me to smile. 🙂

  23. And that is how it starts. I will be hiding under my desk that day.

  24. Its ok if they come on the 6th. I won’t be home that day. They’ll have to dance and shamble and march in their own zombie way.

  25. It’s funny you should mention that because I heard that someone saw a guy tell a girl that he saw a friend of his tell a woman that he heard about this guy that was told that a company had effectively told its staff that they should hear it aswell. Who knew!! 🙂

  26. Hi Soma, again woven a weirdest tail, you gossip monger, well done. I want all your posts in a book form so I can read them and reread and reread……. in my bed. You know I’m a fan of your insane zone and others too btu here you make me laugh too much. God bless you.

  27. oh. achaa really
    and what about the 6th then .. you know that someone who heard from someone who was looking at someone , reading something in someones book, which was borrowed from someone, its had some secret message written by someone who was again talking of someone …

    that 6th something is going to happen .. ok shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh discuss it after 6th .. on 7th then 🙂 what what

    • 😯 what is happening here Guys…a lot of you have a lot of secret something that some one got from someone …
      what has the world come to…
      Bikram lets get that Refrigerator/washingmachine/phone/tv/computer /everything before that something happens
