A Laughing 55

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:

George wanted his friends to laugh.
He really did.
Laughter he heard was good medicine and his friends were always sick.
So he thought and thought then sent ten different puns to his friends with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh.
Very sadly
no pun in ten did.

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 twenty sixth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood. The ballad of the throne taken from the palace archives.
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

King Underware looked for his chair
For his Golden Throne not there
Such a thing who would dare?
Made the great King start to swear
Scream and holler pull his hair
But our sneaky Knight didn't care
He took it to his lair
Stowed it in the attic square
It's more than Laughsalot can bear

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

Okay - YOU need to be discovered. Some of the "talent" on blogspot is incredible. Yours is so unique and entertaining. Top notch and I'll bet it comes easy to you. Glad you have this forum to share your 'work/play'.

No groans here, I laughed! Poor George! And poor king--I tear my hair and throw a fit when my things go missing too. I haven't lost a throne lately, but still--
loved these 55s!

You know Dr. John, as a singer you make a great poet.

No pun in ten did, indeed! LOL!

quilly said...

Oh! Even so, I quite liked the ballad. It has left me with a smile upon my face.

(Sorry I posted this in two parts, some guy emailed me about wrong post numbers and I decided to answer him in the middle of commenting -- then clicked the send button instead of the change window button. I am a creature of habit!)
