Ultra Short Stories IV

 

31 - 40

 

 

31 : Gift

   

The members clubbed together and presented the local antisensei a voucher for a free autopsy.

 

 

32 : Realism

 

In order to increase the undisturbed flow of kata presentations, prompters were placed in unobstructed view of the participants.

  

 

33 : Incentives

 

The budo association tried to stop the member drain by introducing weekly rank promotions with new belt hues.

 

 

34 : Substitute

 

Damn, I forgot my belt.

 

Take mine, I've got a spare one.

 

But the rank color is three levels above mine.

 

Doesn't matter; no one will notice.

 

 

35 : Tax Office

 

Dear Mr Club Chairman. The deductability of your expenses for belt examinations is not possible because these are regarded as donations.

 

 

36 : Alternative aka Famous Last Words

 

"I am the sensei, I am the sensei.

 If anyone doesn't like it, he should"

 
  

 

37 : Insight

 

After having studied the failure statistics, the examinees realized that exam nerves are irrational.

 

 

38 : Advice

 

In view of the announced raise in value added tax, consumers are recommended to buy a new rank still in this year. 

 

 

39 : Fiat

 

The self-promotion by members was rigorously declined by the budo association because the correct payment of graduation fees could not be secured.

 

 

40 : Improvement

 

Field tests show that substituting the current examiners by a coin toss would render the quality of rank examinations 75% more accurate.
