“I was in a motel in Reno and, er, the Thought Police were spyin on me. So, just for fun I took a jar of scaldin hot jalapenos out of the refrigerator and, ah, pretended to rub the juice into my groin or my genital area while I said this: ‘Jalapeno juice is the best treatment on earth for genital crabs -- clears them up overnight.’ The next day, I identified three of the bad guys all the way up the block and, uh, across the street because they were doddering like ancient bow-legged cowboys with forty-pound testicles. They were movin so slow they were quickly passed on the sidewalk by a couple old ladies usin walkers. The pain must have been horrible -- ha ha.”

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...
Kevin O'Kendley is the owner of Carbuncle Moon, and the author of all original material -- cartoons, blogs, shorts, essays, articles -- on the website (there has been a very limited editorial input in some of my work). All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).
