EP Flash: Night Off (http://escapepod.org/2005/12/24/ep-flash-night-off/)

By Jason Erik Lundberg (http://www.jasonlundberg.net/).
Read by Stephen Eley.

The fat man coughed again and rolled over onto his side. He wheezed and his lungs rattled. A few thousand years of being overweight had caused innumerable cardiac and respiratory problems, but the job demanded it.

“Who can you think of to cover you?”

The fat man pondered for a moment, then said, “Lo ho ho?”

His wife frowned. “You know Loki would just cause a mess, and probably light some children on fire. Who else?”



Rated R. Contains profanity and some disturbing imagery.

(Note: Mr. Lundberg has directed that his payment for this story be directed toward Heifer International (http://www.heifer.org/), providing impoverished people with animals and other resources to become economically self-sustaining.)

Fun and silly, though the graphic image warned of in the beginning caught me quite off guard, though it didn't end being as bad as it sounded.
