Friday Flash 55.....



Roll Call.
Flint Southwestern High School.
Fall of 1965.
1st Hour World Geography.

"Gloria Gibson"?....'Here'
"Valery Gilbert"?...'Here'
"Donald Hanacek"?...'Chop'
"Richard Harris"?...'Chop'
"Galen Haynes"?.....'Timmmmberrr'!!!!!
(Laughter and Applause)
"Very funny Mr. Wise Guy, can you tell me where Wales is"?
(Thinks Pensively...)
....'They's mostly in de Ocean'.
"Thats It!!!! Mr. Haynes.......OUT"!!!!!


Needless to say that particular exchange set the tone for my moniker of Class Clown. Hey...I just like to make em laugh!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55,
Please come tell The G-Man...
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!
So from the most smart-aleck host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Brian Miller said...

Titanium said...

Yahtzee? Or is this the 'Rapture' ya'll?

Titanium said...

Mojo's got Double Trouble, here!

Mona said...

Chop What else? That was a 'Natural Response' :D I am glad you did not say "Head"

Mine is up here

Monkey Man said...

Ahh, Galen, you must have taken the heat off many an aspiring wise guy. My 55 will be HERE after midnight Pacific time.

Alice Audrey said...

You've got me laughing and crying by turns because my son is entirely too much like you.

Mine is here.

Mojo said...

Oh... so I guess this wasn't Wood Chop class, huh esse? This sounds way too much like something I'd have done. 'Specially in 20th Century History my junior year. Hmm... sounds like that teacher's most likely response too now I think of it.

My pal Ti's lookin' out for me and put my link up 'cause I got wrapped up in something else and wasn't payin' attention to the time.

Thanks Ti! *waves* And no, the Rapture's the end of the world or something. then again, Brian's been aced outta the Yahtzee spot two weeks running now, so maybe it IS the Rapture! Heh.

MomsJournal said...

Requiem

If you had only fifty-five words left to use, what nouns would mean the most? Would you act on those verbs you had always meant to use? Could you describe to your adjectives how you really feel about them? Would you reconcile with the sentence fragments? Would these questions mark the end of your period?

Ji said...

that's funny!
you brought me there.

I wonder if this was how Dave Barry started out. :)

Thanks for another week full of 55! :)

And why am I surprised about the class clown bit? Just wish you had been in my high school class, it could have done with some humor.

My 55 is Molten Words

Totally loved this! I am a teacher and I usually appreciate kids who act this way. You have got to love the creativity, and let them use it, right!? :) Funny.
By the way, do you know the word "galen" means "crazy" in Swedish...? Just saying... ;)

Oh boy, do I ever remember those days....it was FUN being class clown, wasn't it? Me too....me too. You don't know how many times I was told to go in the hall and think about what I just did...I went...I thought...and I roamed the halls too. LOLOL

Loved your 55.

mine's up.

John's comments said...

Late for me, this week, what with work demanding I do what I'm paid to do. I mean, what a cheek. Misbehaving in school, pull the pants down and six of the best- ooh missus.
My 55 here

The Turning Point said...

Lulda Casadaga said...

The life of the class clown!

PattiKen said...

Great 55! It's so funny, much better material than any clowns in my class.

Mine's up here.

Brian Miller said...

ok, anyone know how to get to laura's post?

secret agent woman said...

The first time my older son cut up in class, my ex and I had to acknowledge that it was the logical consequence of allowing two class clowns to breed.

buffalodick said...

I got a "3" in behavior, which kept me off the honor role..I checked with everyone I could have been talking to-none of which got worse than a two.. I asked the teacher who I was talking to- myself? Three days in the library and had to write a paper.. I asked if I was being punished as I loved the library..

Shadow said...

heee heee heeee! only you. love it!!!


p.s. it's late but it's there.
