You Can’t Stop Eating Junk Snax! (flash fiction)

You Can’t Stop Eating Junk Snax!

“Hey love?” Rachel asked as Natalie grabbed another handful of Junk Snax.

“What?”

“Since the lockdown began, all you do is watch constant news coverage while eating countless bags of snack food.”

“But I like Junk Snax. I can’t stop eating them!” Natalie replied.

“Okay, but your sweatpants and loose fitting top are the only clothes that still fit you.”

“It’s my way of coping. You still love me don’t you?”

“Sure, but could you at least take a shower?”

Above the Earth aliens looked down. The human race was fattening up nicely. Soon it would be harvesting time!

  1. Aliens wouldn’t want to eat us, LOL. Particularly not if you consider the belief many societies have that you take on the traits of the animals you eat (which is why eating predators isn’t kosher or hallal actually).

    LOVE the story though. πŸ™‚

  2. Have you read a book (probably published in 1960s) called Come Hunt the Earth-Man by Phillip High?
    Has certain resemblances. And you know it made an impression on me for me to remember the title and writer all these years on. Same author wrote Butterfly Planet, which was a sequel. Dated no doubt, but if you can find copies, you might enjoy them
