A Grotesque Circus

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

Oh man, not these guys again! Geez. Their show is weird, barely entertaining at all. And the kids couldn’t sleep without a parent in the room for a month.

What genius thought birthing these horrors for entertainment was a good Idea? I mean, I get that these organogrow companies have to keep their uterofactories busy with something. But this? Aren’t there other, better uses for a technology that can make custom-designed lifeforms? Something cute at least?
