Drabble: Dog Food
Spamming slightly; ffutures made a comment on the drabble that I just posted that inspired me to write another one. This time a straight Buffyverse one, again a 200-word double drabble in 2 equal 100-word parts.

Dog Food


Willow frowned as she watched the TV news. Recession, devastation in Gaza, auto workers facing job losses; apart from the inauguration of President Obama everything was bleak. She sighed.

“I wish everyone in the world could have lots of hugs and puppies,” she said.

Behind her a girl, supposedly a new Slayer, morphed into demon visage and grinned fiendishly. “Wish granted,” she said, and vanished.

“Oops. Big oops,” Willow said. “Bad Willow. I used the ‘W’ word.”

“No biggy,” Buffy said, stepping over a yelping puppy and giving Willow a big hug. “Hugs and puppies? How bad could it be?”

The newsreader exchanged hugs with her co-presenter, brushed a puppy off her desk, and faced the camera. “Hello, and here is the news,” she said. “The plague of puppies continues to spread chaos across America and the rest of the world. The hungry canines are eating everyone out of house and home. Food stocks are running out and President Obama has announced that he is being forced to consider introducing rationing.”

She paused for another hug and continued. “A surprise development may ease the situation. America has received an unprecedented offer of food aid from an unexpected source. North Korea.”

The End

I have no shame. And I'm a carnivore.

Hee! Though I suppose it would put the current "What dog will the Obama girls get" dilemma into perspective...

Hopefully a tasty one.

I suggested that? Good grief!

You said "Ooops... Be careful what you wish for." I thought of a wish that seemingly only had an up side - and the rest is history.

I presume the food aid offer from NK was to buy up lots of the puppies...

Oh dear...I DO hope the deal does not involve any trades!!!!! LOL

Very funny. You never fail to amaze me with your quick and beautifully twisted mind.

A trade of tasty meat dishes for some of America's surplus puppies... or perhaps just an offer of some kimshee pickle and a recipe book.

I prefer the 'Pony and Ice-Cream' Party but this is close. *giggles*

Pony and Ice-Cream? That doesn't go together very well, unless the ice-cream is a rather odd flavour.

Thank you!

A chance for the sheep to get their revenge on the sheepdogs?

Special Korean dog dishes I presume.

You are twisted, sir.
