#DeadSealChallenge by Nikki Noir & S.C. Mendes
“Here we go. On three.” Looking at the infected penis on the cutting board, Gary fought back a grimace. He held the cock steady with his gloved left hand. His right hand held a cleaver. “One…two—”
Marley was dead, to begin with. But Gary and Lee didn’t kill him.
They did, however, rummage through his trailer, intending to rob him. There was nothing of value though, until they found the carcass.
With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, Lee concocts a get-rich quick scene with their friend Johnny Ciao—the mukbang king. Things quickly spiral out of control, and if the boys don’t reign it in, their actions could lead to a global catastrophe.
If you like dark humor and extreme horror, take the #deadsealchallenge today!
A collaboration of fiction from Nikki Noir and S.C. Mendes
short, funny and a bit gross
This little story reminds me of the Tales from the Crype show, short, funny and a bit gross, I like it.
Long live the Dead Seal King!
Coming into the #DeadSealChallenge, I thought I knew what I was walking into. The idea struck my funny bone, and I knew that if it was taken to its limit, it had the potential to be pretty fucking heinous. From page one, though, Nikki Noir and S.C. Mendes let me know that all my presumptions were completely wrong, and the story was way darker than anything I could have imagined. And I loved it! It is one of those stories where everything that can goes wrong, does go wrong. You find yourself rooting for the villains, and you laugh while you cringe through their pain.
My husband read this to us during out nightly "splatter punk hour". Funny and dark. Grossly awesome.
Foul and darkly hilarious
Loved this one! Started off intense, gave an engaging and fun mukbang back story and closed out nicely with some possible answers to what happened to these foolish, greedy kids. Definitely recommended!
I don't know that I'd recommend participating in the #DeadSealChallenge, but I'm sure you won't end up like Gary or Lee. You certainly won't end up like Johnny Ciao--the self-professed mukbang king. You know what, come to think of it. I think you'll probably be fine. Never mind the fact that Food Network's Andrew Zimmern wouldn't touch kiviak; he's never been fond of fermented meats. How did we get from fermented meat to the different piece of meat #DeadSealChallenge opens with? It's a long story. Well, it's not that long of a story, but it's a fun short story that you'll need to read for yourself if you want to figure out how we find our way from the discovery of fermented birds stuffed into a dead seal carcass to a rotting penis on the chopping block. There might be some light necrophilia involved in the process of getting there, but you didn't hear that from me. Nikki Noir and S. C. Mendes are a match made in hell, or maybe Greenland? Is Greenland that dissimilar from hell? It's unnerving how real the characters feel as they embark on the most ludicrous get-rich-quick scheme I've ever witnessed. It's unfortunate for Gary and Lee that the story's descent into madness and body horror is so damn entertaining because it makes it hard to feel bad for them when you're enjoying it so much as it unfolds.
