Bubba Ho-Tep

Bubba Ho-Tep - Joe R. Lansdale This has got to be one of the best opening lines for a story ever. "Elvis dreamed he had his dick out, checking to see if the bump on the head of it had filled with pus again."

An Egyptian mummy in an oversized hat and cowboy boots runs amok at Shady Rest Convalescent Home in East Texas, picking off the geriatric residents one by one. It’s up to Elvis and black JFK to put an end to the menace. That is if they can come up with a plan that doesn’t include them getting their souls sucked out their assholes.

A funny, twisted, classic short story from one of the masters. Excellent. This is how short stories are done.
