If you are one of millions who suffer from the overwhelming urge to burn your bridges behind you (pyroconnectivus), talk to your doctor about Zoqix, the first prescription drug developed for bridge burners. With a daily dose of Zoqix, your bridge burning syndrome can be overcome. Do not take Zoqix if you have flat feet, dimples, knobby knees, moles, ingrown toenails or a unibrow. Side effects may include runny nose, rash, weak knees, warts, drooling, blindness, deafness, and spontaneous combustion. In rare cases, fatal hiccup attacks have been reported. Stop burning bridges today and start building bridges to the future.

“What’s that thing?” asked Doug’s girlfriend.

“A model of the planet Aloha.”


“Yeah, it’s where my sci-fi novel happens. It’s a world where evil surfers enslave young girls on pineapple plantations. Sort of like Hawaii.”

“Sounds dark and . . . gnarly.”

“There’s romance too. A hula girl falls for an old submarine captain and he rescues her from the surfers.”

“How could an old guy defeat all those young buff surfers?”

“He has a laser-guided Frisbee loaded with toxic poi.”

“That reminds me. Are you coming to the luau tonight?”

“Can’t. Too many Friday Fictioneer stories to read.”
