Frank
J. Edler
My
mother was an alien and my father was a lamp post. I was fed a steady
dose of soap bars as a child as punishment for my foul mouth and
incessant pranks. Little did anyone know the soap only made me
stronger, faster, more agile. My brain filled with bubbles that were
99.9% pure. It was an amazing time. I left the city and moved out to
the country where I heard tell there is an amazing banana bread
store. I never found it, but I did find love. I loved that tuna
sandwich like no other and we were married on the Fourth of July,
just like Tom Cruise in that one movie about said date. It was a
magical time but alas was not meant to be. I ate it. I tried to move
on, writing books and sharing them with the local townsfolk. They
would tell me to shut up and make sure I flushed before I left. Never
once did I wash my hands like the signs demanded. So here I am, dirty
handed and telling my tales. Wanna hear one?

And now, an interview with the star of the short story Mr. Giggles, part of the Project Entertainment Network’s My Favorite Story Podcast Anthology, the one and only Mr. Giggles.

Nameless Interviewer:  Tell us, how did you land the prestigious role of Mr. Giggles in the blockbuster short story, Mr. Giggles, Mr. Giggles?

Mr. Giggles:  Do you want to play with me?

NI: Well, yeah, sure. But first I’d like to get this interview with you. Mr. Giggles, what was it like working on set with actual vile, putrid demons from Hell?

MrG: I love to tell jokes. Do you want to hear a joke? It's a very funny joke!

NI: Okay, but then we really need to finish up this interview. I have a deadline you know.?

MrG: Knock, knock.

NI: Who’s there?

MrG: Bannana Pants

NI: Bannana Pants who?

MrG: Banna Pants with peanut butter and farts!

NI: Okay then. On with the interview. The rumor mill has been buzzing about an in-story romance that may have brewed when the pen wasn’t writing. Is it true that you and your demon co-star, Mooga, got rather friendly?

MrG: Ewww! Cooties!  Tag, you’re it!

NI: Honestly, I don’t want to play tag. I have a job to do. I’ve got five more press junkets before lunch. Can’t we just get on with this, Mr. Giggles? I’m sure one of the other journalists will be feeling more spry and will join you in a game of tag. The guy from Rolling Stone sure looks like he’d rather be playing tag than writing for that rag.

MrG: Hug time!

NI: Ugh, no! Mr. Giggles, please! Personal space! No, you can’t initiate that type of physical contact in our current social climate. Oooof, thats a little too tight. Ow, yeah, you’re actually starting to kinda hurt me. This has gone well beyond any legal thresholds in this state. Oh my God, you’re squeezing me so tight your flesh is melding into mine! Stop! Stop! Arrrrrghhhhh!

Nameless Interviewer: Teeheeheehee! Do YOU want to play with me?

Editor’s Note: This report was filed via live electronic transfer. The reporter, who shall remain nameless, has not reported back for duty since this assignment. The editors hold no responsibility for the shenanigans, or tomfoolery, or antics, capers, horseplay, funny business, high jinks, mischievousness or frolicsomeness any of our independently contracted journalists take part in. Our legal department advised the editorial department to state unequivocally that reading Mr. Giggles or any of the other stories in Project Entertainment Network’s MY FAVORITE STORY Anthology may lead to a sense of elation, wickedness, mirth, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, uncontrollable winning of the Pick 3 lottery, odd-looking skin-eating worm infestation, unreasonable sexiness and unexplainable ability to use a spatula as a weapon of the ninjitsu discipline.
