Kidnapped

"Where were you last night?" yelled Marcia.

"Monsters kidnapped me," said Harry.

"Lying sonovabitch!" she hollered, swinging a rolling pin at his head.

"Honest. Giant, mutant praying mantises grabbed me. They were hiding in the dark, right outside Clancy’s Bar."

"Oh yeah? Well, Jerk-o, tell me this: how did you manage to get away?

"I promised them a bunch of Bugs-R-Us gift certificates and you."

"Me?"

The roof flew off. Giant tentacles grabbed the gift certificates and Marcia.

Harry heard horrible screams, followed by a monstrous burp.

"Thanks, guys," he yelled. "Now I can collect on her million dollar life insurance policy. Next time you’re at Clancy’s, drinks are on me."
