“Suddenly I find my hand around her neck and it’s all I can do to contain myself. Then I stop, somehow, and I think, this woman has no idea how close she just came to being strangled to death. If I’m being honest, I know the only thing stopping me is my nosy neighbor, Mrs. Alvarez, and how she somehow knows everything that’s going on in the building. Getting rid of this girl’s dead body after I BTK her is going to be next to impossible, what with Mrs. Alvarez constantly lurking around. Sometimes I think the only thing stopping me from serial killing these days is that nosy old woman next door.”
Imagine Charlie Manson, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffery Dahmer, and Ed Gein in recovery from serial killing and going to twelve-step meetings together. What a scene that would be.
Serial Killers Anonymous is the latest in the Flashbytes series from worst-selling author Philip Loyd.

FLASHBYTES: FEED YOUR HEAD
by Pachydermy Philly…
“Billingham Bokstock was born with an elephant’s head. A real, live elephant’s head. Not only was he the first ever trunk-swinging, tusk-bearing, floppy-eared candidate to run for president of the United States, he was twelve feet tall. The first time he walked into a press conference, his head went crashing into the doorway and right through the ceiling. For real. The whole place nearly came down. It would prove to be a problem throughout his candidacy.”
Apolitics Now is the latest in the Flashbytes series from worst-selling author Philip Loyd. Not to be confused with the Man with Small Hands, or Rinos, or the Elephant Man even, Billingham Bokstock is nonetheless the very first actual elephant candidate.
