A man walking along a deserted road near his home in a backwoods and out-of-the-way place had a mild shock this weekend, when, much to his surprise, he found a billiard ball in the middle of the road.

The ball was the number 11 ball.

All kinds of strange thoughts came into his mind:

"What a poor shot!"

"Why did the billiard ball cross the road?"

"How did this ball get here, and was it used in a violent attack on someone, in the same way Ray Winstone's character, Carlin, carried out that 'sock attack' in 'Scum'?"

All this and more careered through a kaleidoscope of intricate shifting patterns inside the fabric of the man's brain.

As he drifted mesmerically along, paying not the slightest attention to his surroundings, he remained blissfully unaware of a roadside bar which doubled as a billiards club after 9pm.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
