The Blue Air Compressor

Gerald Nately is a young writer who writes a short story about his friend’s wife, Mrs. Leighton. Mrs. Leighton is an enormously obese woman, so Gerald calls his short story “The Hog.” Mrs. Leighton finds the story and mocks it, saying that she was too big for him to write about her, so he shoves the nozzle of an air compressor into her mouth and overinflates her, causing her to explode.
