Most Unusual Brownies

Photo by: J Hardy Carroll

Efrem inherited rare mystical magic powers from his father, but his true love was cooking.

The test to enter the School of Cooking was simple. Make brownies. So, Efrem put every fiber of his being into the food. When he finished, the cooking judges stared at him open-mouthed.

Efrem panicked. Something was wrong. “What is it?” he moaned.

Chief Judge Penworthy murmured, “Well, this is rather unusual…”

“Too much sugar?”


“Batter too stiff?”


“Then why do you all look like that?”

“Well, ah,” stammered Penworthy. “We’ve never seen anyone summon a fire-breathing dragon to cook brownies.”

About EagleAye

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.

    I hope they don’t deem him a fire hazard and deny him entry 🙂

    Oh, cool! Sort of Harry Potteresque 🙂 I was certainly not expecting a dragon.

  15. Ah, ha, ha. No, I don’t imagine too many people have seen a dragon conjured up to do baking. I wonder if Efrem has his own cookbook. 1. Mix the cookie ingredients. 2. Summon the dragon and give instructions. Well done, Eric. 😀 — Suzanne
