The Nice and the Nasty

The Nice and the Nasty

by Mark O'Donnell




Food Technology, a giant conglomerate, is being run by Cathexa Heitz, daughter of the aged founder, Hobart Heitz, (who has retreated to his enormous estate with his second wife, a teenaged ex-porn star) with the advice and counsel of the ruthless Blade Crevvis (who has an adjoining skyscraper torn down because it reflects the sun in his eyes). Into Cathexa's life comes an ingenuous young scientist, Junius Upsey, who has invented a cellophane helmet that converts the sun's rays into nourishment, thereby obviating the need for conventional food. Cathexa and her father are taken with Junius and his invention, but Blade (who is secretly plotting to destroy mankind) definitely is not�which leads to the frantic hilarity that ensues as Blade and his evil assistant, Smurgison, seek to remove this obstacle to their nefarious plans. Happily all works out for the best, thanks to the last minute intervention of a deus ex machina and the diligent efforts of a ten-year-old reporter, who has become the most popular anchorman on TV because "everybody trusts a kid."
