Flash Away

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:

The Flasher

He was a flasher.
There was no doubt of that
He carried the little card that said he was a flasher.
He had been a flasher since 2003.
But you can't go around flashing in polite society.
They would throw the book at him.
The police caught him in the very act of flashing
a chimney.

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 twentieth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Finding the incompetent Wizard Moreless Sir Laughsalot asked him to change his ugly frog back into a horse.
The wizard waved his hands and spoke some Latin words.
There was a puff of smoke.
Thus the frog became a giraffe, a very tall giraffe.
Sir Laughsalot sent his Squire for a saddle and a ladder.

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

Hehehe there are certainly different kinds of flashers! Good job Dr. John. :)

Lou said...

I imagine my fellow bloggers in many ways...but Dr John, I never pictured you as a flasher..

great 55 as ALWAYS, and thank you for your patience with my technical ignorance!

Mona said...

A more legal form of flashing, but just as dangerous :-)
Loved your 55.

Hootin' Anni said...

I'm sure this is a dying art...but you bring it to life. Great 55!
And I love the giraffe and ladder...:D

Connie said...

I love both 55's. Good ones.

g-man said...

Albert Flasher?
Excellent 55 Doc...
And BTW, I really liked your little instructional post about pasties. As you well know, it's a UP tradition, first brought over from Wales by copper and iron ore miners. The ones that we in Michigan are used to, usually have rutabega in the mix.
But thanks for your fine contribution, and have a Wonderful Week-End...Galen
