Okay, here we go, first one, thrillers, ready, how ‘bout this: NotFlix: a group of teen thugs goes around taking peoples movies out of their mailboxes, but one of ‘em they get is a sex tape DVD of the governor's mistress, and now they’re mixed-up in an attempt to blackmail this guy as he’s running for president?


Fine. Next. Drive-Through: this lady, she goes up to a drive-up window, to get a burger, ok, only she gets a bag of cash because the guy thought she was there to pick up the payoff to his loan shark and now he's gotta find her before they kill him.


Nope? Maybe they fall in love? Romantic comedy thriller? No? I got more. Here's another: Stop Sign. Ready for this one? Guy’s all in his car, stoplight, and he sees this scared-looking guy in the backseat of another car get shot so our hero, he goes to the cops, only the cops tell him he's gotta go into hiding but, turns out the guy that got killed was a higher-up mafia guy and the mafia, they want to know who the cops were that killed this guy, so the mafia kidnaps our hero from the cops. Only hero, he doesn’t know the mafia’s kind of on his side so he keeps trying to help the cops find him, not knowing  they’re going to kill him!

 ...Don did you think all these up on the drive over to the studio?

In 250=1, I write stories that are... come on you know this, don't you? About how they're all 250 words long, exactly, including the title? About how you can find a list of them all right here? About how the fact that you read this whole sentence now requires you to send me $100? GOTCHA. That's a binding legal contract there, buddy. You back out, I'll sue you. I swear I will.  Wait, what're you... don't go! I was only kidding! Look, I just needed the money.  It's been an expensive summer. You have no idea... COME BACK SOON!
