A Fine Vintage

Photo by: Roger Bultot

Gargoyles on a synagogue were unusual, but Rabbi Ibrahim liked them, and joking about it with Father Augustus was fun.

While people prayed inside, a man with a twisted mind and a black heart approached the synagogue with a heavy black gym bag. As he reached for the door, a stoney hand snatched him up.

Crunching sounds ensued.

As the final songs were sung inside, Bonk the gargoyle licked blood and gun oil off his claws. “The guns are the tastiest part,” he noted.

“Indeed,” said Biff, patting his distended belly. “The AR-15 rifle was a fine vintage. A ’98 I’d say.”

Author’s Notes:

To everyone who has lost a loved one in attacks on the places of worship, my heartfelt condolences. For the perpetrators and enablers of these horrific acts, there is a special place in Hell reserved for you.

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  3. Dear Eric,

    I’d like to be first to order my gargoyle. 😉 Love it. Funny but, sensitive tribute.

    Gargoyles rule. If only there were more of them, the world would be a better place. That’s a kind of happy ending I very much like.

    If only… every place of worship needs a Biff.

    My story – ‘This way that way!’

    I bet Biff and Bonk would be great friends with Chummy. So very sad what is happening. Sadly, I can only see it getting worse.

    Gargoyle appreciated Rabbi Ibrahim’s love and reciprocated by eating up the killer.

  15. It seems the gargoyles work for free and all the killers and weapons they can eat. That’s a good deal. Good story and writing, Eric. 😀 — Suzanne


  16. That was fun.
    Gargoyles Rule!

    If it were only that easy. Enjoyed.


  18. Go gargoyles! We need more of those these days.


  19. The world needs more gargoyles like Biff and Bonk on patrol!


  20. List of X says:

    How dare these evil gargoyles dare to kill a law-abiding gun owner! It’s not like he killed anyone yet! We should immediately pass gargoyle control laws and let everyone carry guns for everyone’s safety!

    Ha! Ha! Loved this! The gargoyles just need to be wary about getting Glock coma.
