Doody Calls (Season 2, Episode 11)

October 5th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Did you get the title?  It's "doody" instead of "duty".  Because it's a bathroom joke!

That's right loyal listeners, this week our hosts are explaining all of their jokes!  After complaints that the humor has become too sophisticated and high brow everything is getting dumbed down just a little more.  Can you believe it!?

Heather is reading this week, and Ken chose another short story from recent fan and host favorite author Mack Reynolds (Season 2, Episode 3 "Sex Fly").  The story is called "Potential Enemy", and once Heather gets through reading the title, it moves along nicely, with only slight diversions to talk about things like:
Our plan to end climate change.
The greed of wanting friends AND money.
And the difference between callouses and hemorrhoids.

And the moral of the story is...

Probably something we missed entirely.  But let us know what you think anyway.

"Potential Enemy" was published in Orbit SciFi in 1953.  Extensive research has been unable to find any evidence of a current copyright.  If you know of any reason this story might not be in public domain, keep it to yourself.  No one needs that negative energy in their life.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

Now sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
