Bad Posture

by Ari Collins

The spindly green little monster glared, growing to surpass my height as his shoulders broadened to frame a convoluted new musculature. Elongating legs bent awkwardly; a second knee, a third. His head loomed, buttressed by five additional necks. "The other trolls say I shouldn’t slouch. Now what’d you call me? A spindly green little what?"

*sounds of a balloon inflating*

Haha, perfect.

In retrospect, there's a little too much of Frieza from DBZ here.

Only if the monster gets huger again, then shrinks down to the protagonist's size and dies.

Hah, I figured Jackson would get the DBZ reference.

I thought about the show for the first time in a while and said to myself, "Man, I have never watched the entire Frieza fight. I should do that now!"

Then, after watching it for a moment, I remembered why I have never watched the entire Frieza fight.

Holy crap, that's a daring endeavor. How many episodes does that giant hilarity-fest actually span?

Jackson said...

I think it works as kind of a subtle DBZ parody.

Ari Collins said...

@Zel (I assume): I never want to find out how many eps it is.

@Jackson: I don't think anyone has ever before used "subtle" and "DBZ" in the same sentence.

That was a classy achievement, Jackson. And Ari, for even letting the entirety of the Frieza fight reenter your mind, you're a braver soul than I.
