Flash 55- The Crook

Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.Here is today's story.

Calendar Crook

He was new at this being a crook.
He assumed the old calendar he stole had value.
It didn't.
He ended up getting caught.
After a long and totally weird trial the jury found him guilty.
The judge looked at him and said " Because of your crime I am going to give you

twelve months.


Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the sixteenth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

The King sent Sir Laughsalot and the Shining Knight to fight the dreaded Mountain Witch.
When they arrived she turned Shining into a pumpkin.
Sir Laughsalot thought that was so funny he fell off his horse laughing.
The Witch left.
Still laughing He brought the pumpkin back to the square table and its first chair.


A Finnish joke-translated and cut to 55 words

Home from the Winter War

"When you came home, when the war was over, what was the first thing you did?"

"I made passionate love to my wife," Jussi replied bluntly.

What did you do after that?"

"I did it again," he answered.

" What did you do when you were finished ?"

"I took off my skis and had a beer."

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

We loved the 1st 55! I read it aloud to Amoeba and we laughed together.

The Finnish joke was much funnier in the original language.

Great 55. I wonder if he gets an Advent one for good behaviour?

I was going to say something about 12 months being a bit long, but got distracted by skis and beer.
