Feeding the Sharks

Bubba carefully wrapped his boss’ body parts in newspaper like he’d seen the fishermen do down at the wharf. He was going to put them in the aquarium freezer and use them to feed the sharks. Maybe the piranha keepers would want some too. They always seemed to be looking for protein for the little flesh eaters.

He hadn’t planned on killing his boss; he just wanted to teach him a lesson. No one said anything bad about his momma and got away with it. He knew they were going to tell him he needed to go to anger management classes again.

He looked down at the hand he was wrapping and saw the help wanted ads. "THUGS: Morally unhindered individuals wanted. Apply in person at Pauly's Deli, bring work samples."

Hmm … maybe instead of the classes I just need a second job,” Bubba thought as he finished his work. When he was done he set his boss’ hand and left leg to the side and put the rest of the body in the freezer then locked the door.

Before he left, he tossed the leg into the shark tank and watched the feeding frenzy. He patted the hand in the bag and headed downtown to the deli for an interview.

After work, he had a big Reuben sandwich for dinner and his first assignment: kill a mafia snitch and dispose of the body.

The sharks would definitely be eating well in the future.
