This brief story concerns a man sitting in a bar who's desperate for a date, but getting nowhere with the woman sitting next to him. As a last resort, he uses the Werewolf Gambit, one of the wackiest pick-up lines ever devised. He claims he's a werewolf. Suddenly she's interested, and agrees to go home with him. But sometimes claiming a supernatural nature may have unintended consequences.
