Drabble: Consumed


“I told them this would happen. But did anyone listen? Of course not.”

“So what is it?”

“There are certain kinds of noxious waste that, when concentrated, can breed creatures of great power. You remember last fall’s toxic smog monster, or the nuclear lizard beast a few years ago.”

“But they’ve solved those containment issues. Besides, this is so much more.”

“What is it?”

“Do you watch television ads?”

“Well, yes.”

“You know how bad they are. But of course, the ads you see are the very best ideas – so many are thrown away.”

“Then this monster?”

“It’s the rest.”
