A Well-Earned Break, by Bruce Arbuckle

Jimmy won’t stop complaining. “I wanna break!” he whines. “Let’s get this wardrobe up the staircase first,” I say. He sighs, liberates a hand to scratch his arse, and I feel the heavy lump of furniture slide. He screams, a bone snaps. And just like that, Jimmy gets his break.
