The Man Who Could Not Die!

Depending on your frame of mind when you read "The Man Who Could Not Die!", this could possibly be the funniest story ever posted here at THOIA, or most pathetic. I mean, can you imagine the level of mindbreaking frustration for poor Mike Kyle as time and time again he... well... let's not spoil the fun now and jump the gun, eh?

From the June 1953 issue of Adventures into Darkness #10.

Argh! Thanks for catching that Prof... actually what I had was two page #4's so page 5 is actually now page 4B. Don't ask why, we do things all kookaburro around here.

"The Man Who Had No 'Alone' Time"...frustrating indeed. I'm surprised he made it from 13 to 14 without going mad.

So, assuming the Mike Kyle completed his contract, what was he going to do with a 10,000 dollar bill torn in two? How exactly do you go about passing one of those?

"Uh, yeah. I'll take a pack of double-mint, one of these racing forms, and -- say pal, you wouldn't happen to have change for a $10,000? I seem to have left my negotiable bonds in my other suit."

"Sir, this $10,000 bill is held together with Scotch tape. Are you a contract killer?"

"Why I've never been so insulted in my life! I'm taking my business elsewhere!"

Poor Mike Kyle really was a pathetic schmuck who couldn't catch a break. I liked it. I LOL'ed. Out loud, even.

Nice comments, thanks everyone... and nice to see people making use of the new blogger "reactions" options at the end of the posts. Hopefully this doesn't stop you all from actually leaving a worded comment of your own thoughts though. I'll try this function out for awhile and if it works I'll keep it, let me know what you think.

More horror coming right up...
