:pointr:  A Tale of Two Buttocks (Community Project Results)A Tale of Two Buttocks:
in which we meet Anna Beth, knife-guy as WB Yeats in Disguise,
and Honey Boo-Boo who is immune to zombie attacks.
+++++++++
It always came down to choices, and if Anna Beth had chosen to squish herself into the half a seat not occupied by the left buttock of the rotund woman in front of her, she would not be in this situation. Anna's eyes darted around the train's interior as the hooded man behind her shoved the knife deeper into her back. He twisted the knife screaming insanely "Welcome to hell - you whore," wiping away the blood that splashed back into his forehead. Anna Beth was grateful her attacker had no idea the knife he used was like a pinprick in her seat partner's left buttock, a woman who never registered either the knife or the man.
The passengers continued looking in front of them, ignoring the psychotic man that only Anna seemed to notice. None on the bus wanted to draw the man's attention or knife towards them. But it was the last stop, a

Some Participation Prizes!

Though I did not mention them in the project announcement, I rarely pass up the opportunity
to give away points! So here are a few prizes associated with this project:


RUN-ON SENTENCE MASTER


:icontonepainter:

While neither dawning nor sudden, the awareness that grew in Sean was itself aware that it lacked
an appropriate adjective, and the emptiness that attached itself thereto (to the meta-awareness, that is) was like
the vacuum energy of space-time--in other words, it was huge and indeed bigger the further away you were from it;
"of course," he realized, "you're that Butler: not the Butler who did it, nor the ubiquitous sidekick of lovesick
(and sometimes crime fighting) billionaires--nay, you are William Butler Yeats himself, dead Irish poet come back
to torment a half-assed Scotsman!"

BEST ONE-LINER


:icondamonwakes:

"You can stay here," said the buttock (with the voice of Sean Connery) to the rest of the rotund woman, "but I'm leaving."

LIMERICK


(Because how did a poem end up in here?)

:iconscfrankles:

Anna Beth didn't think he would harm her -</span>
he'd been transformed into a charmer:
sure, he'd wielded a knife
and threatened her life
but Yeats was always a man for the drama.

BEST TWIST


:iconwyldhoney:

"Say," Anna finally turned to the insane man, "have you ever tried spooning?"

Congratulations! You'll all receive 25 points and a feature of your work in my journal sometime this week! :clap:

A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated and made this project the rousing, hysterical success that it was.
This community never ceases to impress me.

:heart:

This was a hilarious event: it was great to have been able to contribute. Love the title by the way! :giggle:

And I'm really chuffed for that sentence to have been picked out: there were a whole lot of good ones in there.

As soon as the llama made its appearance, I knew this story could not be created anywhere else but on deviantART. :lmao: Had to stop snorting into my cornflakes the whole time. I think your project could rival the Odyssey Project! :B
