About this submission


A conservative commentator suffers from uncontrollable stomach pains before his appearance on a national news program... But there may be something more to his discomfort.


I spent most of the month mulling over ideas upon seeing the challenge, and this one eventually popped into my head when I was "alleviating" some stomach pain of my own (that's code for on the toilet). This is my take on a Cronenberg -type body horror, tackling a very real feeling in the zeitgeist when it comes to certain types of opinions and how they may apply to the very real lives of the opinion holders.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider "XYX" - hope you enjoy it!
