The Apocalypse of Explosive Diarrhoea

by khushi17bansal


It began as all apocalypses do.

It began when a dangerously bald, dangerously powerful, dangerously rich man, granted a dangerous amount of obedience, standing in a dangerously tall building got a ridiculously stupid idea.

This man was none other than Parlon Rowe, the CEO of WaterWorks, which controlled the water supply of Asia.

Mr Rowe and his company was facing a rather large problem.

Water scarcity was real.

It was real.

WaterWorks was running out of water to supply to its consumers and the investors were putting pressure – pushing for a solution.

It was up to Mr Rowe to find a solution.

Mr Rowe delivered, oh yes he did.

Two sleepless nights, a cup of coffee, a trip to the toilet and the thought of losing a few billion dollars of profit did the job and by morning Mr Rowe had come up with a solution to his water crisis.

A cheshire cat smile graced his face as he excitedly flurried through his office like a headless chicken, extolling his great plan.

Mr Rowe planned to solve WaterWorks water scarcity problem by recycling domestic sewage water. This was the only type of contaminated water that was not treated.

Mr Rowe was very happy that he had thought of this untapped asset, this abundant resource.

Mr Rowe was a dangerously bald, dangerously powerful, dangerously rich man, granted a dangerous amount of obedience, dancing in a dangerously tall building, with a ridiculously stupid idea.

Who could deny him?

So, preparations were made, his plan was implemented.

It was kept top secret because Mr Rowe wanted to surprise the investors.

He wanted to be the knight in the shining suit with a PowerPoint presentation.

As the next meeting with investors was just around the corner, Mr Rowe pushed everyone to work extra hard, and insisted that the water be sent out without proper testing.

The recycled sewage water was sent out without testing. 

The water was sent to the entirity of Asia. 

It was done.

Thus began the apocalypse of explosive diarrhoea.

Explosive diarrhoea.

Mr Rowe was very sorry.

Oh yes, yes he was.

He was very sorry the investors couldn’t see the PowerPoint presentation he had had his PA make.

Mr Rowe now believes that the medicine industry is where the money lies.

Hi there! I'm reviewing using the YWS S'more Method today!

Hi again! Let´s go to the review, now.
Top Graham Cracker - What I Know
What is immediately clear to me after reading it? It was a fun story. I like the well-chosen first sentence, which immediately drew me into the plot.

Slightly Burnt Marshmallow - Room for Improvements
It's hard to say - the story has a clear narrative style that it adheres to, so criticizing it is pointless. However, each sentence may not always have to be in a separate paragraph (some of the sentences could easily be joined together, and it would still appear fluid). So I don't see much to criticize.

Chocolate Bar - Highlights of the Piece
It was a piece with a specific type of humor, whic I just enjoyed. And the using of sentences... almoust every single one just fit next to others.

Closing Graham Cracker - Closing Thoughts
It is a silly little story whic made me smile.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night(whichever one it is in your part of the world),

Hi! I'm here to leave a quick review!!

First Impression: Well this was a really funny little story here. I think you do a wonderful job creating a lovely exaggerated character there and a lovely little tale to go along with it. Its a simple idea and its done very well.

Anyway let's get right to it,

It began as all apocalypses do.

It began when a dangerously bald, dangerously powerful, dangerously rich man, granted a dangerous amount of obedience, standing in a dangerously tall building got a ridiculously stupid idea.

This man was none other than Parlon Rowe, the CEO of WaterWorks, which controlled the water supply of Asia.

Mr Rowe and his company was facing a rather large problem.

Water scarcity was real.

It was real.


OOoh well that does seem like quite a big problem there to be dealing with especially given the business that they seem to be running, it'll be quite intriguing to see how this goes.

WaterWorks was running out of water to supply to its consumers and the investors were putting pressure – pushing for a solution.

It was up to Mr Rowe to find a solution.

Mr Rowe delivered, oh yes he did.

Two sleepless nights, a cup of coffee, a trip to the toilet and the thought of losing a few billion dollars of profit did the job and by morning Mr Rowe had come up with a solution to his water crisis.

A cheshire cat smile graced his face as he excitedly flurried through his office like a headless chicken, extolling his great plan.


Well that is definitely the face of someone who has come up with the worst possible solution to a problem judging by the look that we're seeing on there. Let's see what this offer is going to be.

Mr Rowe planned to solve WaterWorks water scarcity problem by recycling domestic sewage water. This was the only type of contaminated water that was not treated.

Mr Rowe was very happy that he had thought of this untapped asset, this abundant resource.

Mr Rowe was a dangerously bald, dangerously powerful, dangerously rich man, granted a dangerous amount of obedience, dancing in a dangerously tall building, with a ridiculously stupid idea.

Who could deny him?


That seems like a bit of a desperate plan there, not one that can end well cause I'm sure that particular water is left alone when it comes to recycling for a very good reason, that reason being all the contaminants being a bit too much.

So, preparations were made, his plan was implemented.

It was kept top secret because Mr Rowe wanted to surprise the investors.

He wanted to be the knight in the shining suit with a PowerPoint presentation.

As the next meeting with investors was just around the corner, Mr Rowe pushed everyone to work extra hard, and insisted that the water be sent out without proper testing.

The recycled sewage water was sent out without testing.

The water was sent to the entirity of Asia.

It was done.


Well it seems the plan worked very well for Mr. Rowe, just wielding all that power and all that baldness being just completely unstoppable. I just adore that description that you used there.

Thus began the apocalypse of explosive diarrhoea.

Explosive diarrhoea.

Mr Rowe was very sorry.

Oh yes, yes he was.

He was very sorry the investors couldn’t see the PowerPoint presentation he had had his PA make.

Mr Rowe now believes that the medicine industry is where the money lies.


Well that is quite the end there, looks like naturally he takes this disaster and blames it on someone else before of course finding a way to then somehow turn it into profit.

Aaaaand that's it for this one.

Overall: Overall I think you've done a wonderful job here of creating a very funny little tale that absolutely does leave a smile on your face and at the end for a silly piece like this what more could you ask?

As always remember to take what you think was helpful and forget the rest.

Stay Safe
Kate
