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!

The Happening

It was a strange community.
They never seemed to get together, or even to communicate at the most basic level, until someone suggested they arrange a happening.
Maisie keenly arranged it all.
Just what is a happening? Jack asked.
Think of it as a play, she said.

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!

The party

She hated the Christmas party.

They said it was good for staff morale and all that crap!

She hated it!

All that posing. The bling. Yuk!

Then the boss started to come on to her. She lost it.

Smack!!! Right on the nose. It looked broken.

He was a bully, and pretty ‘armless.

What a dummy!

The Sand Fly Typing Pool

The experiment had been tried before with monkeys.
Now, working with sand flies, it was thought that, eventually, their landing on the row of keyboards must lead to a work worthy of Shakespeare.
What a pity Charlie, the office junior, had forgotten to load the platens with paper!

Those new contraceptive tablets were great.
The instructions were really clear.
I just had to make a sheath out of the intestine of a goat and stretch it over my organ, before ravishing all the handmaidens I desired.
I didn’t have an organ, or a piano, so I stretched it over my lyre!

Branching out into horrible humour

The tree had become quite a tourist attraction.
57 pairs of shoes in the branches.
114 uppers, 114 laces, 114 throats, 114 tongues, and 114 heels.
Beneath the tree there were only half that number of tongues, all belonging to the 57 bodies buried there!

Please pray for their souls!

Firstly Kat wrote her story:

Smart Girls

“This is exactly how I found them Doctor. I don’t know what to think! Should I be worried that my sweet daughter has mangled her Barbie dolls?”
“Have you asked her?”
“I did. She told me she hated Barbie. Who hates Barbie?”
“Smart little girls, Mrs. Jones. I hope you’re listening.”

Smart Girls Part 2

I was not convinced by the doctor’s comments, so I asked for a second opinion.  A lovely lady offered her services pro bono.

“Don’t worry Mrs Jones,” she said. “Have you checked the liquor cabinet? I think all young girls lose their heads some times. She just got a little legless!”
