The Question

by DragonSkulls

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. When
they came down, someone killed them both and sold their
flesh on the dark web.

The buyer carved, sewed and tailored their tender skin so it
would fit snuggly.

One day, on the subway, someone asked him a question.
The skin on his face stretched tight when Pinocchio lied and
answered, "Why yes, I'm a real boy. Why do you ask?"
