Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

What to make of it?


I found this on the street yesterday while walkin’ the dog.

Let me ask you: Cheerful omen of wonderful things to come? Or, hideously ironic symbol of nihilistic hopelessness and the inevitability of an icy void?

    Cursed item that will open a gateway to hell on Halloween?

    Have you read the graphic novel Watchmen? There could be superheroes on the loose…

      I haven’t read that. I wouldn’t mind some superheroes popping in!

        You wouldn’t want these ones. Don’t be put off by Superhero or Graphic Novel. It’s a very intelligent look the abuse of power and what having superheroes would mean in a real, credible environment

    I’m thinking there’s a sad little kid somewhere wondering where their smiley-face went…and it will trigger some deep psychosis, spawning a future serial killer.

    Quick! Put it back!!

    It’s a South Pangean Giant Yellowback beetle. Harmless, unless you are allergic to cyanide.

      I’ll squish it, then call in the hazmat team.

        Put aside 90 days and $20,000 for the jail time and fines. It’s a Yellowback for God’s sake!

    Smiley faces like that one are on a par for me with clowns … I would have stepped on it, made sure it was crushed, then walked away!

    You sure can read a lot into a smiley face 😉 It looks creepy. I don’t think I could stand to have it in my room at night …
