Two men awake within the confines of an electrified chain-link fence. Machine guns point at them from every direction. Fanged beasts stalk the outside. An hourglass shows they're running out of time. They have no idea why they're here.

Great short story. The title makes sense after you finish reading it. Best of all, Joshua Scribner's work is mostly free! Read this one, he's a talented writer.
Very interesting and intriguing short story.... a good read for those who like twisted reads.
I'm not exactly sure how to classify this short story. It was an interesting read, dealing with the situations life sometimes places us in and the choices that bring us to those situations, but it wasn't all introspection. There's real action to this story, complete with a ticking clock, a deadly and possibly inescapable trap, and man-eating cows. Hissing, fast moving, man-eating cows.

An interesting short story with no actual ending. It's more left up to the reader to decide why certain events occur and what their meanings are. Very strange with no real plot but actually had me thinking about it for a while after I was done with it. I will be looking into other works by this author.

Very interesting... the beginning had me wanting to put the book down and walk away but luckily, it was short. From there on it was a very good story filled with suspense and confusion... Man-eating Cows?!
Crazy story that had me on the edge of my seat. Very short and sweet. Makes you think because initially you can't tell why the characters are in the predicament they are in.

Not bad a short story. It kept me reeled in until the last word.

Like I needed another reason to fear cows.
Another chunk of mind candy short story. Not too bad!!
