“I’ve murdered thousands and only felt the slightest hint of remorse,” said the little old man. He fidgeted with a bowler hat in his lap.
“Well, audience?” asked the game-show host.
Bleep. Bloop. Blorp.
The host gestured towards a digital display. “The numbers are overwhelming, audience says... exterminator.”
The little old man’s lips twitched into a smile beneath his white, walrusy mustache. He chuckled and nodded. Lifted himself from the chair, and shuffled towards the exit.
“Next up on Name that Profession: I like big butts and I cannot lie.” The host winked at the cameras. “Stay tuned.”

That’s hilarious. Had me at first. Now I’m really curious what occupation “likes big butts.”
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I’m so glad you liked this micro-fiction. I originally thought of the “likes big butts” profession as a plastic surgeon that specializes in gluteal augmentations. However, another reader (on Instagram) thought of a cigar-cutter, which is also a brilliant possibility. Thank you again for reading and commenting, I hope you have a great week!
Well done, I didn’t picture that twist that you threw in!
