Adam Prince, “The Triceratops”

One undergarment inspector wants to see his co-worker’s triceratops.

There were so many times when I thought this story was teetering on the edge of wackiness and predictably weird humor. Maybe the word I’m thinking of is carelessness or thoughtlessness. But it never went that far, and so was a very pleasant, funny reading experience. It helps that it’s really short. Too long and the strings would have showed, it would have fallen into the abyss.
Here is a picture of the author, Prince Adam.
