Humor, Science Fiction, Feghoots | Comments

A story pun (also known as a poetic story joke or Feghoot) is a humorous short story or vignette ending in an atrocious pun (typically a play on a well-known phrase) where the story contains sufficient context to recognize the punning humor.   It can be considered a type of shaggy dog story.  The following is a Ferdinand Feghoot story written by Spider Robinson in homage of the creator, Reginald Brentnor.  It might be the only TRIPLE FEGHOOT in existence!

In which we read a wonderful short short story by Mr. Avram Davidson, giving us a new twist on an old legend.

The original is a bit long to quote here, but you can read along at the Art-Anima site which has been kind enough to quote the text in its entirety.

Alternative, you can visit SLIDESHARE for the PDF.

I had a fun (and difficult) time conjuring up the voices for this one.  Enjoy!

Once again, we visit the twisted world of Mr. Frank Key.  I had planned to do a reading of a dadaist writer that I much revere, but I kept blowing the pronunciation in rehearsal, so back to Mr. Key I went.  It seems fitting, doesn't it?  Frank Key always delivers.  Don't believe me?  Go visit Hooting Yard, you'll see!  Youuuuu'llll seeee!

In this piece, Mr. Key shows us a new twist on an old song.
