Kip and Dredge, Attorneys at Law

I’m early again! It’s almost time for Friday Fictioneers, when writers from around the world post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog.  This week’s photo is by EL Appleby.

The last time we saw Kip and Dredge attempting to join the workforce, they were shoveling manure. Now we see their progeny in the 22nd century–as lawyers! Are the two jobs really all that different? You decide 😉

As always, I encourage you to read other Friday Fictioneers’ work by clicking the link that appears below my story. Enjoy!

Kip & Dredge, Attorneys at Law

Log Recording: Partners’ conference, downloaded from Attorney Dredge’s implant.

Note to IT: Attorney Kip’s brain implant had insufficient power—again.

“What the heck is that?”

“It’s a Horned Septet. Haven’t you been keeping current with patents issued for our clients’ living toys? The Horned Septet is produced by Appleby Toys’ brilliant BioSlice™ process.”

“I never agreed with the concept of patenting life forms.”

“Plants and microorganisms have been patented since the twentieth century. This isn’t a biological weapon; it’s just a kids’ toy.”

“But it’s part tiger!”

“That’s why we’re here today: the Wisoff-Fields’ lawsuit….”

  1. I think your story was a class-y action.

    Loved it all because it was so detailed-ly creative – but most of all I liked the:

    Appleby Toys’ brilliant BioSlice™ process. (especially the BioSliceTM – that was great!)

    as an aside when I typed the BioSlice the first time I had a typo of BioLice – now there’s another good worry in selling children’s bio toys and another lawsuit waiting to happen. Randy.

    • Hahaha, so Furby’s been a tad annoying, has he? They probably should have provided a parental remote control device with a mute function….

      Thanks for reading and commenting. Have a great weekend!
