Hugs and kisses. Here we are again in the "Ditzes and Gangsters" column. Today, a truly spoofy subject. Spoofy my ass. Ay, how should I tell you, I find it embarrassing. EM BAR RASS ING. You, you ditzy ditzes, how can you brag about your gangsters that are actually just goons that leave their bathroom door half-open and the light on while their sleep? What kind of gangsters are those, you ditzes? Your girl's telling it to you right now, those are wimps, people. WIMPS. Bye now, kisses from Dănuța.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In January 2022, the group has 7.830 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
