The story was an absolute killer.
As he read the opening line the hook sank deep into his nose, puncturing gristle and cartilage and slicing completely through to the other side.
He was drawn kicking and screaming into the plot as the storyline developed.
As he reached the end of the final paragraph, his face split, bones fractured, snot and blood geysered, iron-hard knuckles repeatedly slammed into him as he was beaten to death by the punch line.
