Today I feature a short tale from Canadian author Tom Halford. I warn you, it’s not for those of a queasy disposition! This sort of thing doesn’t happen in Huddersfield ….

Swizzle Stick

for James Fletcher

by Tom Halford

Orson shot, skinned, and gutted the bear. The bones of the animal were crumpled in a hug, and the intestines looked like swollen sausage links. He left that and everything else he didn’t plan on using next to a pine tree.

Three days later, he got a
phone-call from his brother-in-law. The brother-in-law wanted the bear’s penis. He asked Orson to boil it down to the bone so he
could use it as a swizzle stick.

The brother-in-law planned to mix
rum & cokes for his buddies. As they were drinking, he would tell them that
the swizzle stick he’d used to stir their drinks was
actually a bear’s cock.
