I think it's only fair that we speculate wildly on what happened to Sean during his disappearance. Therefore, here's a special edition of the Short Story Challenge. Use your artistic license to predict what happened to our plucky hero...

he was in a meeting.

Maybe it would be better in the one sentence story format. As Shakey demonstrated :D

Sean was in the longest meeting ever recorded in the annals of history!

26-04-2004, 09:23:44
It was longer than a lying down crane on the back of a truck, previously thought to be the longest thing in the world.

26-04-2004, 12:35:53
Even longer than the Great Road of China and the Berlin Path put together.

26-04-2004, 13:17:59
Suddenly, our plucky hero stopped when he heard a knock at his door.

It was his mother, in her hand a telephone.

26-04-2004, 14:11:48
"Sean" she said in that annoying voice mothers reserve for asking you to do something totally boring and pointless that's going to interrupt your important being bored doing nothing time, "I've broken the telephone by using it to knock on your door again, can you fix it for me?"

26-04-2004, 14:21:47
Sean reached for the stereo remote, and paused the Theo Thonnessen remix of Four Tet's "My Angel Rocks Back and Forth" which had been playing for the past 45 minutes.

26-04-2004, 15:01:05
"Mother?" he gasped (in a kind of question that broke the one sentance rule), "but we just buried you this afternoon... you must be.... undead!"

"Actually Sean, forget the telephone for the moment, it's nearly tea time. Could you go and lay on the table? Your brain is the main course."

26-04-2004, 16:15:55
"ok Mother" Sean groaned, wondering why his life suddenly seemed like a really poor one sentence story.

26-04-2004, 16:22:04
"But first, Mother" Sean asked, "how did you become a zombie?"

26-04-2004, 17:27:08
Meanwhile, the Reading gang was in a quandry, as none of them dared call his house, for fear that someone might answer!

"Golly Gee," said little Phillip, "I do wish they'd all just die, I do, I do!"

27-04-2004, 16:24:18
Funko, seizing the moment, hit on the perfect plan, "Let's get a young school girl to call him!" and after declining K_G's attempt to play this role, selected Alsi to make the call.

27-04-2004, 17:17:54
Our young brave heroine giggled at the fear of the men and dialed Sean's phone number.

27-04-2004, 17:33:35
Little did she know that Sean's zombified mother had ripped out his phone and used it to knock on his door.

27-04-2004, 17:52:06
Unknown to the Reading gang, at that Very moment, Lurker was calling from the NY lockup, trying to raise bail money after being arrested for public smelliness.

28-04-2004, 22:22:47
"Hello, hello, I want to order an extra large double garlic pizza with extra anchovies and navy beans."

29-04-2004, 11:35:48
As usual, Lurker couldn't even get a phone call for help without ordering food, and thus, he was destined to remain behind bars, at least till they came round and hosed him down.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, George Lucas overlooked his zombie horde.

01-05-2004, 17:37:06
Deep in the tunnels under Skywalker Ranch George Lucas plans plans that will bust Lurker out of the joint.

02-05-2004, 15:37:14
"Lurker, with his overwhelming stench and tiny easily controlled brain will be the perfect leader of my Zombie army! ", jeered George.

George slowly stroked his cat with one hand and laughed, evilly, as he casually cancelled another eagerly-expected adventure game.

02-05-2004, 17:20:38
"Nobody really wanted to play 'Ewoks, the Zombie wars' anyway, he mused."

Scabrous Birdseed

"The Fools," he continued, "little do they know the cancellation of Sam and Max: Freelance Police was really a cornerstone of the plan to replace ALL CG POSTER WITH ZOMBIE POSTBOT AEs!!!!"

02-05-2004, 18:11:20
Of course, Lucas could not guess that it was the stench of Lurker, worse then any corpse could ever be, that would ultimetly destroy his carefully laidout plans.

"Ahmmhmmhmm... Squidy," he called his giant, invisible squid minion, "It is time to put operation "Sewer Bunnies" into play!"

03-05-2004, 01:16:01
If Squidy's eyes could blink they would have blinked, once, twice and thrice before he burbled,"Ummmm, George, have you been taking your medication today?"

03-05-2004, 13:12:24
Back in his room Sean also blinked as he wondered why his story didn't seem to have much to do with him...

However, he only got halfway through the blink before his mother-zombie's hand burst through the door, showering the surroundig area with splinters.

03-05-2004, 15:26:11
"You...had...a...callllll...from...the...CG...gang" the zombie stated, which was surprising, as Sean knew the CG gang where terrified of calling anybody, lest they actually have to talk to someone they didn't know.

However, Sean quickly stopped puzzling as the subsequent maternal uttering was the more familiar "Braaaaaainnnnsssss!!!", which she had regularly moaned even in her pre-zombie days.
