Dial M for Murder

Fed up with your wife?
I want rid of mine, too, but I want to keep my house.
Thing is, she bores me.
And her taste is utterly appalling, she’s just so kitsch.
So let’s do each other a favour.
Get yourself an ironclad alibi, call me, and I’ll bump off your missus.
Then you eliminate mine.
But remember, don’t try to cross me.
I know where you live.

  1. Dear CE,

    I’d love to know what his wife thinks of him. Oy. If kitsch were grounds for murder I’d be in big trouble.

    Kitsch as a motive for murder! Well, why not? I’m sure it’s been done for less. Good one, C.E. By coincidence, we had re-watched this Hitchcock thriller just a few days ago.


  3. Very Hitchcockian.
    An extremely … erm … interesting piece of art from Mr B this week!


  4. notestowomen says:

    This reminded me of the movie, Strangers on a Train, another Hitchcock classic.


  5. jenne49 says:

    Nice one. It fair gave me the chills!


  6. Iain Kelly says:

    Even better if he’s a painter-decorator too, could come in and get rid of the kitsch decor after the exchange is complete :-).
