virtual cake and candles for us all

To celebrate PicFic’s 2nd birthday, current editor Casey Murphy has selected a list of seven stellar stories from our archives. This means the next seven issues on Twitter will link back to the originals. Can’t wait two weeks? Want to know which stories made it NOW?

Mouthpiece by Christian Ward
Intermission Snipe by Robert Laughlin
Revenge Served Cold by Eric Berg
Think by Bruce Harris
Global Warming by Ben White
In Vino Veritas by Kevin Bishop
An Agonizing Choice by Tom Mahony

The creation of this list was an agonizing choice. If your favorite stories didn’t make it, please share which ones you would have chosen. The point of this celebration is to remember what an incredible collection of words and wordcrafters this archive holds.

Bon anniversaire to all our contributors and readers!

In Vino Veritas

“That rainbow jello comes from unicorn hooves,” Bill said. The boy stopped eating. “You’re drunk, Uncle Bill.” “Doesn’t make me wrong, boy.”

I stepped on a stingray. Pain ravaged my leg. A bum offered to piss on it for ten bucks. I declined. He said it was my loss. Hmm. Doubt it.

Think

The 3rd grader stared at the word. His teacher connected the “h” with the cross of the “T.” It dawned on him. Rules were made to be broken.

Global Warming

The proof is in the pudding. No, I mean I literally dropped it inside this vat of pudding. Please, we need to hurry. Start eating.
