Sample Sunday: "The Wonderful WonderWoods"

The Wonderful WonderWoods, the fifth and final part of the "TOONS" series, is now available on Amazon. Here's a sample:

At that moment, the president stepped through the curtain and onto the stage. His footsteps echoed across the raised, wooden platform, drowned out by the thunderous applause of his executive staff. The elves in trench coats remained silent.

The Masked Executive acknowledged the applause with a wave of his hand as he took his place behind the podium at the center of the stage. "Good afternoon, gentlemen. I trust you all slept well, so let's get down to business, shall we?"

The audience chuckled and leaned forward as one. Some got their notepads and pens ready.

The Masked Executive shuffled through his notes. "At this point in our fiscal year, I believe it would be most prudent to begin the reorganization of our management positions to more clearly define our goals. I shall now begin by reading our previous financial records and contrast them with our projected income."

After a moment of silence, the audience burst into gales of laughter. Elves slapped each other on the back, wiped tears from their eyes, and rolled in the aisles. The Masked Executive watched this spectacle with a blank expression, even considering the fact he had a mask over his head.

When everyone quieted down, and crawled back in their seats, chuckling to themselves, Jingles frowned, stood up, and said, "I don't get it."

The Masked Executive blinked. "What do you mean, 'You don't get it?'"

Jingles glanced over at the other executives for support. "I mean, I don't get it. Maybe if you told the punchline again, slowly, so we get the full effect--"

"You fools! That wasn't a joke! It was the introduction for my financial report!"

"Oh." Jingles scratched his head. "Well, when do you get to the jokes?"

The Masked Executives threw his papers to the floor. "There aren't any! This is a corporation, not a comedy club! Let me make this very clear. You will enjoy yourselves on your own time! From now on, you are here to work!"
