Superfluous

In which children should definitely be heard somewhat less


Walking through the town centre, I heard a piercing scream, loud enough to make me jump. “What the hell?” I thought, worried that something horrible was going on.

Turning the next corner, I found that something horrible was going on. “HOW LOUD IS YOUR CHILD COMPETITION,” said the sign. “WIN A BEAR.”

That’s really not necessary, I thought. Children are loud enough already. They don’t need encouragement to scream as loud as they possibly can, because it happens often enough in any case. If only it was a real bear.

    It wasn’t? How I loathe false advertising

    It looked pretty much stuffed to me.

    If it were a real bear, I would so have entered myself. I always wanted my teddy bear to turn into a real bear cub when I was a kid.
