The pen dispenses napalm instead of ink. When you’ve written your manifesto on the side of the courthouse, subway car, or whatever, use the self-contained igniter and whoomph, your words burn brilliantly for a moment before they’re indelibly burned into the surface.

...draws pictures using gunpowder, so I guess napalm could probably be made to work. [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       “Can I have my pen back?” Charlene said.
I fished in my purse for it, then found it in my pocket. It had leaked napalm all over. I reeked of it.
She took the pen, examining it closely, frowning. She shook it.
“Dang it, pluter, it’s empty, what you been doing?”
I smiled, pointing to the big letters burned into the stone of the Arc de Triumph. We were sitting in the shadow of it at one of those Parisian street-side tables. She twisted her neck to look.


“Ah, I see you made yourself plural.”
I looked again, and felt suddenly heavy. My mind whirled, making up excuses—
It was late,
I was dizzy, ditzy,
they ran through my brain, wagging their little tails, but the real reason was...I was stupid. This time there was no escaping it.
