Lightning Strikes Oriental Pearl Tower In Shanghai

British MP Renfield R. Renfield was conversing with his friend Amadeus Emanon via Skype.

“So what’s The Hooterville Cannonball up to?” Amadeus asked Renfield.

The Hooterville Cannonball was the name of the London-based billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set’s eco-friendly environmentally friendly cannabis oil powered dirigible airship.

“Well, she was in the Philippines yesterday buying a whole bunch of giant clams for Set’s proposed clam bake in September (unless it’s outlawed by the Boris Johnson government for fear it will violate social distancing),” Renfield was coincidentally eating some West Philippine Sea giant clams as he said this.

“I heard reports from an eccentric Australian named Uncle Ernie that I met in a pub yesterday that, according to the short wave radio that’s hidden in his tin foil hat wearing desert cactus plant that apparently smokes pot according to him, that the Hooterville Cannonball was flying in the direction of mainland China after purchasing the giant clams from Philippine fishermen,” Amadeus helped himself to some marijuana laced oysters.

“That’s true,” Renfield nodded, “Set Enterprises received information that a Chinese Ministry of State Security official wishes to defect to the West and specifically Britain because he apparently enjoys the idea of eating fish and chips while picnicking in the park which is a quaint British pasttime.”

“What inspired him to defect?” Amadeus asked.

“He apparently encountered the legendary immortal Princess Kwan Yin (who’s venerated as a goddess of mercy in some branches of Buddhism) outside a cave in a rural area of southern China and she smiled at him causing him to faint because she was so beautiful,” Renfield explained.

“When did this happen?” Amadeus inquired.

“Yesterday,” Renfield explained, “His old fashioned wireless put in an emergency distress call that was in fact picked up by the short wave radio hidden inside Uncle Ernie’s tin foil hat wearing desert cactus plant that smokes pot and Uncle Ernie’s cactus communicated the message to Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster’s lobster antennae. Since the Hooterville Cannonball happened to be in the vicinity, Set ordered it to China to pick up the defector.”

“I hear China has been undergoing all sorts of extreme weather phenomena the past few months,” Amadeus noted.

“That’s true,” Renfield unveiled a weather map of China he happened to have behind him, “There has been extreme flooding in many parts of China causing many dams to burst which makes the situation even worse.
This past July 28th snow actually fell in the city of Beijing on a hot summer day. Although Chinese Communist party officials denied it was snow because being good Marxists, they deny objective reality. Then yesterday a very bizarre series of unusual looking lightning bolts struck the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai which is the 6th tallest tower in the world. So naturally the China Daily which is the Communist Party of China’s daily English language newspaper immediately issued a story that lightning did not strike the Oriental Pearl Tower.”

“Another denial of reality,” Amadeus commented.

In Beijing, China’s paramount and officially atheist leader Xi Jinping commented to no one in particular, “The Emperor of Heaven is not against me despite all appearances.”

A seagull came down and laid a one thousand year old egg in his hair.

    “…because being good Marxists, they deny objective reality. OMG. The gov’t creates reality. Nothing happens unless they tell it it happens. Nothing’s real until they tell you it’s real. There are no floods. There is no lightning. And my favorite line from my favorite movie: “There is no spoon.” More dracul brilliance. And since there no profile of a beautiful Asian woman here, yes, I could focus and read.

    Well, their news on TV says the floods are mere “illusions.” Most images of the floods are taken by drones, and news anchors say ” Don’t they look beautiful? ” You can’t make this up.

      It’s like the CCP and all their mouthpieces and branches have adopted the lingo of George Orwell’s novel 1984 verbatim.

  6. Apple Rae said,

    Hahaha your humor and imagination is just superb, Chris!! And oh, the giant clams from the Philippines are the best! Have you tried one? πŸ˜‚

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      No, I’ve yet to try them.

      I’ve just read about them.

    Snow in July? Whoa! And sadly even if I grew up close to the coast buying fish straight from a fisherman’s boat I haven’t seen or taste a giant clam πŸ˜„
    Marijuana laced oysters 🀒 but I wish to chat with Renfield over that giant clam hehe 😁

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, snow in July in Beijing.❄

      And yes, you’d probably enjoy eating giant clams. πŸ˜‹

      • Jessica E. Larsen said,

        I just remember seeing it, but we were poor we couldn’t afford it.
        Don’t tell me you’ve taste it? That’s unfair! I’m from the born in a country that has it. πŸ˜‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        No, sadly I haven’t tried them yet.

        But I’ve heard they’re good. πŸ˜€

        Renfield R. Renfield who used to be Chief of Security and Intelligence Gathering For Set Enterprises and is now a British Member of Parliament – obviously he can afford them. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

      • Jessica E. Larsen said,

        Damn it, now I want a dinner appointment with Renfield over giant clamsπŸ˜‹ 🀣

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’ll ask his Executive Parliamentary Assistant Mirabella Francesca Franconia to see if an appointment can be arranged. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

      • Jessica E. Larsen said,

        Now, this may be rude, but is Mirabella just Renfield’s assistant 🧐 jealous fangirl! πŸ˜‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, MIirabella is just Renfield’s assistant. πŸ˜‚

      • Jessica E. Larsen said,

        Kehehehe 😁
