Today's #flashfiction The Massive Artifact

 “You spin me right round, baby. Right round like a record, baby. Right round round round.”

Originally only my friend Jessica was coming over, but now CJ is as well. That means it's going to get really, really crazy. So crazy that we'll have to resort to Operation Spaghetti to feed everyone. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Massive Artifact

          Professor Johnson and his team unearthed a massive artifact. Something so impractical must have been ceremonial, religious. In all his years the muscular, shaved scientist and his colleagues saw nothing like it. Their theories ran rampant while they looked at a huge weapon they dug up. Vikings must have made such a thing for their halls. It would fit a warrior culture to create something like this to put on display.

          But Professor Johnson was wrong. He attributed to many ancient cultures since he didn't have any other items to reference it to at the time. However as he began dusting the item off to reveal the details of the boat-sized weapon it was revealed. The axe that laid before them had a name etched into its handle. And it was Paul Bunyan.
