Mission Briefing, A Micro Flash Fiction Story by Raymond Daley

On the journey to the frontline we watched a comedy, our ancestors made them so well, they were still funny over a thousand years later. “What’s this one called again?”
“Starship Troopers. It’s hysterical!”
Our platoon leader called us to attention.
“Listen in, we don’t know how but our ancestors left us this combat instruction film against the enemy.”
We watched in amazement, how had they known so much over a thousand years ago?
“Sir, who was that hero defeating the enemy back then?” a trooper asked.
“It says his name was Charlton Heston. He sure knew how to kill Apes!”

THE END.
