The Cart Thief by Rachel Dunstan Muller

This story had me laughing out loud. In it, a man's obsession with shopping carts brings him to no good end, but it's the obsession rather than the end that I thought hilarious. Ms. Muller deadpans her way through the story and the juxtaposition of the tone with the subject matter does the trick. The ending is pretty inventive as well and was reminiscent of a short story called Game On by Iain Rowen (I think).

All in all, a great read and a good reason to go out and get the latest (May 2006) edition of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.
