A collection of short stories from David Bernstein. Here we go:
The Trojan Plushy –

Another revenge tale that combines the werewolf with witchcraft and the Trojan Horse. Has a Twilight Zone-kind of feel.

4 out of 5 stars

The Booglin –

You’ll think twice the next time you have a booger stuck and it won’t come out. Fun, silly story.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars
Potty Mouth –

This is one messed up story! I won’t even try to explain it. It’s simply something you’ll have to experience for yourself. Kudos to Bernstein for probably the most far out there original tale I have ever read! You need professional help, sir!

5 out of 5 stars

STD –

If you weren’t convinced to practice safe sex before, you will be by the time you finish this story.

5 out of 5 stars
All in all, a nice collection of macabre tales. There were only a couple that didn’t do it for me. The rest were fun and there were even some that I have to question Bernstein’s sanity or blood alcohol level. Good stuff.

Overall:

4 1/2 Bags of Blood out of 5
