Flash Fiction 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:

He bought the most expensive car he could afford.
It had every known bell and whistle.
He was so very proud and loved to show it off.
He loved the looks he got while driving it.
But the day came when he drove his car into a tree
and found out how the

Mercedes bends.

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 thirty sixth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood.

The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Sir Laughsalot stood armed with a burlap bag.
The dragon looked down at Laughsalot, opened its mouth, and licked its lips.
At the moment Laugsalot threw the burlap bag into the dragon's mouth.
The dragon's flame went out.
Sir Laughsalot pulled his Laughing Sword and advanced toward the dragon.
The dragon was no longer bored.

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

This reminds me of an accident I had when I was 17. I rolled the car three times in the middle of a highway.
The car wasn't a Mercedes, but it sure found ways to "bend" anyway! :o

Nice 55. :)
Mine's ready too... right here.

The Mercedes Benz punchline was perfection.

I hope Sir Laughsalot doesn't kill the dragon. That would be horrid!
