Halloween is upon us again, here is my offering for the occasion.
Happy Halloween everyone. Bwuhahahahahahahahaha!!
Having the palms of your hands nailed to a table is probably not the worst, or most painful thing that can happen to a person, definitely not the most pleasant, but still probably not the worst.
Unfortunately for Jimmy Diggs his problems were a shade more numerous than that.
Someone had also hammered eight inch nails through his thighs and into the chair he was sitting in, the heads of more nails protruded from the tops of his shoes.
Several two inch ovals secured his lower jaw and chin to the table top, leaving his neck bent and strained at an unnatural angle, adding further to his discomfort.
His eyelids were stapled to his eyebrows, giving him the 'surprise-eyes' look, and leaving him staring across the table at the TV screen opposite.
Jimmy moaned occasionally, the pain was not so severe any more, three days of sitting here like this had taken a numbing effect.
Even the panel pins through his fingertips, which had given him the most excruciating pain had lost most of their effect.
His brain was also numb from watching “The joys of wallpapering” DVD which was on repeat play.
Jimmy had been a naughty boy. He had borrowed money, lots of money, from some very unsavoury characters, in order to prop up his failing chain of 'Home decorating' shops
And of course, when the present economic climate had seen the further decline of his business, the money had not been paid back.
The bad guys had visited Jimmy, the money had become unimportant now, Jimmy was worth more as a warning to others.
When he was discovered, the medical team which arrived shortly after were about to administer a powerful morphine dose to knock him out before the he was freed from his predicament.
“Can you just hang fire for a few minutes with that syringe?” Croaked Jimmy.
“Why?” Said the medic, incredulously.
“I'd just like your opinion on whether that wallpaper pattern really does go with that shade of green.”
