The Embarrassing Pimple on The End of My Nose


This story is not for the faint of heart. The details contained within are so vile and so disgusting that they have been known to make small children cry, stop the birds in the sky singing and drive sane men insane with torment. It is said that this will be the last story ever read at the end of days. This is your last chance to turn back. You have been warned; what has been read cannot be unread:

I have a pimple. A really big one. On my nose.


This might sound like a small matter but it is not. This pimple is so large that scientists are re-classifying it as a separate life form, activist are starting to fight for its rights and the religious community is crying out that it must be destroyed before it brings about the doom of mankind.

It is currently sitting on the end of my nose like an unwanted squatter, impossible to ignore and refusing to be evicted. I finally understand how women feel when men are unable to stop staring at their boobs during a conversation because everyone have I talk to can not take their eyes off my nose pimple.

I am a man in his thirties. I am not supposed to get zits of this magnitude anymore. Unsightly zits are a young man’s game. I left that behind me years ago along with my youth and my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle VHS collection. This simply should not be happening. I look like a Tim Burton version of Rudolf the Red Nose reindeer. Am I regressing back into my teenage self one zit at a time? How long is it until my hair becomes greasy, my ability to grow a beard fails me and my voice un-breaks, making me sound like Elmo on helium (again)?

And will it ever go away? Will it evolve sentience and free will? Will it start to talk? Can anything a zit has to say be good? If I look at the tip of my nose I can already see it. I’m scared that it is going to wave back one day. If it gets any bigger I might have to start giving it a co-writers credit.

And what exactly will happen if ‘eruption day’ finally comes? Will I survive it? Will I still have a nose afterwards or just a blast crater for a face?

Either way, I think that I will find out in the next few days.


Right in the middle of a conversion with my father-in-law. We both survived the explosion but it shows that the late zit had a seance of humour when it came to timing.

    I’m sorry but a post like this demands a photo to accompany it. You know sort of pics or it isn’t true style. Inquiring minds want to see!!

  2. Bart says:

    Does it have its own moon orbiting around it? You don’t have a really big zit if it doesn’t have its own lunar system.

  3. Invader Stu says:

    Breigh – Don’t you understand. I already told you this story could drive you insane. The sight of it could make you claw your eyes out. :p

    Bart – It has it’s own moon, sun, black holes and an interplanetary alliance with other zit.

  4. Anneke says:

    Oh my, it’s starting! the invasion of the zit! Put it away, put it away! The horror! :P I doubt people look at your zit the same way men look at boobs. And I say that as someone who has heard the “pick-up line” “TITS!” uttered by drunk weirdos more than once.

  5. Dragonlady says:

    Oh Stu, as only a mother would ask, Does it hurt.
    Oh and are there any little green men in residence yet.

  6. The girlfriend says:

    It takes too much space in our bed!! the zit has to go…otherwise i’ll go!!

  7. Sharon says:

    Stu, that was a very short post and not too horrific… yet. You’re going to edit it to full glory on explosion day, aren’t you? I smell a

  8. Invader Stu says:

    Anneke – Sorry about saying that

    Dragonlady – It does not but the land value is quite high

    The girlfriend – And what if I run off with the zit

    Sharon – I have to survive it first

    you want to get your hormones level tested, if you’re growing a nose nipple…

  10. Orangesplaash says:

    Oh my God..the warning had me thinking. Well done. Best of luck for the zit.

  11. Invader Stu says:

    clarinette – I was wondering why I only get them once a month.

    Orangesplaash – I like to be dramatic :p

  12. Anneke says:

    Stu, no worries, :) I just doubted that the zit would evoke quite the same reaction (as in nice to look at) I figured people would rather look away… :P ;)

    You should know my sister and i play a game called “Guess Where Kiki’s Pimple Is!”, cause despite being almost 30, i still get the odd one on such interesting places as my neck or forearm.

  15. Invader Stu says:

    kiks – I fear that I would lose a game of “guess where Stuart’s pimple was” because it is so obvouse. You will see the small creator for yourself later.
