A Girl With Brains, by Maria Kelly

“Men!” Barbara shouted indignantly, to no one in particular. “They’re so thickheaded. They only love my body and not my brains.” Barbara’s latest failed relationship had left her feeling somewhat jaded.

She pondered the absolute pointlessness of her love life. She’d had many lovers recently and none of them had understood or really satisfied her. But they were smart, and she’d learned something new from each one of them.

“After all,” she sighed, “I loved them for their brains.”

She lifted the oozing skull of her latest lover to her lips and, making loud slurping noises, sucked the brainpan clean.
