Today's #flashfiction The Best Metric

 “You put your right leg in and you shake it all about!”

Went out to eat with my parents today. I ate a French Omelet. Do you think French Omelets have ever gone to war with English Muffins? Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Best Metric

          A bunch of starving artists lived together as roommates. There was one pizza slice leftover from last night and they couldn't decide who could get it. Before they started beating each other with their canvases, Ted, the shortest and wisest in the group said.
        “We could draw straws.”
         It made sense to them. So they all took out their sketchbooks, their pencils, and began to draw straws. Whoever drew the most convincing, beautiful, realistic straw would get the pizza slice. What's fair is fair right?
        Soon they finished their art. All of their drawings could make angels sing. They all agreed they needed an impartial judge. They asked the landlord of the apartment complex and he replied,
        “You did this over a pizza? I knew you guys were a bunch o' loons.”
They still wanted an answer.
         “Eh, ennie, meenie, moe!” The landlord said while picking a piece. Bill, the most timid of the artists, had his selected. All the other artists gave him a pat on the back, despite their intense malice for his victory they remained the best of friends.
