Away with the fairies

Mary placed fresh flowers by the picture frame every Friday, the day that her 4 year old son had jumped into the picture.

He’d always insisted that the fairies talked to him, and said he could join them. She’d played along, and said how lovely it would be.

She regretted that now!

Let’s face it!

Peter, the pumpkin, was feeling really glum. You could see by the look on his face.

He’d been in this pile of pumpkins for 2 weeks now and, despite having worked his way up to the top and front of the pile, no-one had chosen him to be their Jack-o’-lantern for Halloween. Sad face!

An educated palate

The crows all knew that it was only a matter of time!

The boarding school was absolutely chock-a-block with small, tasty, children.

The birds were salivating with the sweet smell of young flesh, rising up on the thermals.

They had to come out soon.

It was only a matter of time!

Retired hurt!

The naturist tree huggers club had chosen their site really badly for this year’s convention.

The forest was mostly made up of young oak trees and the bark was really rough.

The opening “get to know your tree” dance resulted in multiple injuries and most members had to retire hurt!

I told you not to mess with that laser gun again, now look what you’ve done. You’ve made a hole in the sky!

How are you going to explain that to your Probation Officer?

Alien space ships are falling through. That big orange one just burned straight through a double decker bus!

Meet me after the battle he said.

Just have to dash to Bosworth Field he said.

Then ZAP!…..I find myself transported in time to this deserted car park in Leicester.

The local paper says it is 2012. I left Richard in 1485. How can that be?

And just where is my Sovereign Liege?

A MINOR INCONVENIENCE

You see that ridge line, over to the right? That’s where the boss wants the charge placed. Just under that overhang. The avalanche and rockslide should do the job perfectly!

POTUS, meanwhile, was adding the finishing touches to his plan for a golf course for the rich and famous.

OK you pesky elves, someone is having a laugh.
That middle tree is upside down!
I want you to dig it up and plant it the right way.

We can’t do that mister, it’s getting dark.

Never mind about that, just get it done.

No, we can’t do that! It’s against the new rules for elfin safety!

It rather spoils the tale but, on checking, I find that what is “Health and Safety” in the UK is “Occupational Safety and Health” in USA, “Workplace Health and Safety” in Australia, and any number of other descriptions in other countries, so my tale falls a bit flat! Put it down to age!!

“I’ll just explain again. You accelerate hard. Don’t worry about the bumps and bends, the bus will keep you safe. Now, this is the important bit. Once you get to 97mph the vehicle will disappear. You’ll still be in it though.”

“Any side effects?”

“You may wet yourself.”

“Thanks!”
