A bright man who worked as a candle maker for Elster's Candle Works was let go today for missing his period. In light of poor candle sales, many felt Old Man Elster waxed the poor bloke for omitting what only can be called an unfortunate bit of bad luck, leaving out the period at the end of a sentence!
The hourly man, Winston Morerod, was attempting to place an advertisement in the local ledger when misplacing a 'period' caused the sale price to be doubled.
This of course brought piss upon old Mr. Elster who hated and detested lost time and money. His immediate response was a good tongue lashing, and the unforgettable words, you are terminated!
Determined to leave the small shop with honor reserved through years of professional service to loyal customers, Morerod thanked all his co-workers and proceeded to slash Mr. Elster's head from his body with a small medieval sash sword. Elster and staff were equally surprised!
Elsters Candle Shop will be closed until further notice.
