I looooved this one.  I think the reading made it even better than it would have been on paper.  Yay Graeme!  :)

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

I think this is my favorite of the whole bunch.  It's like Tales from the Crypt, as written by Dr. Seuss.  I loved the rhyming, and the dark subject material told in a singsong manner.  I agree with Bdoomed that I probably liked this way way better in audio than I would've on paper, a great reading by Graeme.

Awe.  Some.

I also really liked the singsong meter of the gruesome subject.  :)
