So the cops received a mobile call from a guy, to report that someone had just attempted to mug him.
Two of New York’s Finest duly turned up at the location he had given – an alley, next to a cinema – to find a little guy standing over a big guy, the latter of whom was holding his throat, gasping hoarsely.
Upon being asked what had happened, Little Guy stated he had just left the cinema and was heading down the alley to the car park, when Big Guy had stepped out from behind a dumpster and demanded his cash.
Realising he did not have more than small change on him – and no debit card – Little Guy knew from experience that muggers rarely shrug their shoulders and leave when told this. He figured he was in for a beating.
And so, having nothing to lose, he had opened his hand into a scythe and yelling “HOO-WAH!” – had rammed it into Big Guy’s windpipe, with the result the cops could clearly see.
Suspiciously, one cop asked, “Are you a registered martial artist?”
“No,” replied Little Guy, “I’d just watched a revival of ‘Enter The Dragon’ and in that, Bruce Lee did the same thing to a big guy and I figured what the hell – it worked for Bruce…”
Now as a story, the above is admittedly unremarkable – but what IS remarkable is that I just DREAMED it. Really.
Oh and by the way, it helps if you play the following while you read it…
