Drabble: Setup

Setup

Zozo the Clown was quite dedicated to his work. Even more so than most clowns (and believe you me, clowns are a dedicated bunch). So it came as no surprise, when they read his final directives, that he'd carry it forward in death.

The tombstone was handsome and rather tasteful, with the usual dates and figures, and a tasteful engraving of Zozo's face. A combination of pressure and proximity sensors in the area would trigger a tiny, hidden spout to spray seltzer in the mourner's face.

Sure, a rather jerky thing to do, but it truly was his spitting image...

Okay, I actually laughed out loud and startled the boy. Well done!
