Michelangelo’s Prophetic Vision of The Middle East

Renfield R. Renfield still feeling blue over his loss of leadership of the British Transhumanist Techno-Progressive Anti-Bio Conservative Party decided to go down to the Set Enterprises lab to see what chaos he could unleash on the world down there.

He realized he hadn’t seen what Michelangelo the genetically created psychic lobster had been up to for quite a while.

Michelangelo (a special genetic creation of Set Enterprises’ resident mad scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher) had the ability to enter people’s dreams and see what they were dreaming.

He also had the ability to pick up radio transmissions from the future on his lobster antennae.

Renfield decided to see what the future held.

He hooked up Michelangelo’s lobster antennae to a computer that had the ability to track and interpret what the lobster was seeing and hearing.

Renfield then threw a pair of dice on a poster showing Albert Einstein after he had stuck his finger in a light socket while discussing the space/time continuum.

Michelangelo’s antennae started to sizzle and crackle and discharge electricity.

“I think he’s picked up something,” Renfield remarked to Amadeus Emanon who had come into the lab to see what Renfield was doing.

Renfield put up the volume on the computer loudspeaker to see what radio transmission from the future was coming in on Michelangelo’s antennae.

It turned out to be a news story from the very near future.

Radio news announcer: And so the entire countries of Iraq and Syria have now fallen under the control of ISIS. ISIS militants are now crossing the border into the neighbouring countries of Lebanon and Jordan…

… Meanwhile in Washington D.C., U.S. President Barack Obama told an interviewer that he still does not believe that the United States is losing the war against ISIS…

To be continued.

    van Morrison: “We don’t need no psychic vampyres round here”. From the album “What’s wrong with this Picture?” Good album, good story – thanks!

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Thank you. 🙂

      I’ve never heard of that particular quote from Van Morrison before.

      Quite apt for this particular story.

      Renfield R. Renfield is a genetically created shapeshifting hamster/ human who serves as the Chief of Security and Intelligence Gathering for Set Enterprises.

      Set Enterprises is a multi-billion dollar research and development company owned by the London-based billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set.

      Set of course is best known for dismembering his brother Osiris in Egypt millenia ago in what was obviously a very violent outburst of sibling rivalry.

      Amadeus Emanon is a cloned human who was cloned from the DNA of composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, British actor Alan Rickman and California mass murderer Charles Manson.

      He works as the billionaire Vampire Set’s personal concert pianist for despite whatever homicidal and psychotic tendencies Set might have, he does have excellent taste in music so one might be tempted to forgive the Egyptian vampire’s other shortcomings.

      Michelangelo of course as this story shows is a genetically created psychic lobster who has the ability to enter people’s dreams and pick up radio transmissions from the future.

      All of these beings (with the exception of Set of course) were created by Set Enterprises’ resident mad scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher or to use a more politically correct term “sanity challenged scientist Dr. Cadbury Rocher”.

      Thank you for your comment. 🙂

        Eehaw! as Alan might say.

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        You remind me of this cartoon, that features a so-called Mad Scientist. Every time the narrator mentions him, the man turns, irritated, to the camera and complains: “Angry scientist! Angry!”

      • draculvanhelsing said,

        LOL ! Nicholas. 🙂

        Actually you don’t hear the term mad scientist (meaning insane scientist) very much anymore.

        You mainly heard the term in the old Hollywood horror movies of the 1930s and ’40s.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, Alan would probably say that all right.

      LOL !

    Lobsters seem far more accurate than the public affairs team that feed The Naked Emperor his uplifting words for the masses.

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, perhaps it’s time for a lobster to serve as an aide in the White House.

      Given the activities of certain hypersexualized Presidents in recent American history, I’m sure crabs were let loose in the Oval Office.

      Perhaps it’s time for a lobster to occupy a position in the West Wing.

      • Randstein said,

        Chief of Intelliegence comes to mind right away 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,


      A lobster would make a great Chief of Intelligence for the White House! 😀

      • Randstein said,

        Things would improve drastically with a lobster in that position. It could sweep the 2016 elections because we desperately want something more intelligent than the current field of politicians we seemingly elect with glorious whimsy.

      • draculvanhelsing said,

        Sounds Iike things are ready for a glorious press conference in Maine where a lobster announces he’s running for President. 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      And naturally a lobster as Chief of Intelligence would wish to avoid being grilled by House and Senate Committees.

      • Randstein said,

        Bwaa haa haaa! Lobsters instinctively try to avoid getting into hot water. It will have to be very sneaky and not tweet state secrets on his smart phone. Nobody will suspect his antennae

      • draculvanhelsing said,

        Lobster antennae will come in handy for picking up and sending cryptic messages. 🙂
