Friday Flash 55.....


.
.
A lovely tree-lined street....Circa 1988.
(Knock Knock)
The heavy oak door slowly opens.
"Yes"?
'Hello, my name is Julie, I'm a Jehovah's Witness, and I'm....
(The door opens wider)
"Julie? Please come in. If you'll excuse me just a second, I have some fava beans cooking on the stove, my name is Hannibal...
.
.
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 stuffed-up host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Well later anyway

I gave Ti the week off ;-) She's been working too hard anyway. But as for me, Life Is Good.

YAHTZEE!

Monkey Man said...

Loved that movie. Like your take. My 55 will be HERE after midnight Pacific Time.

Jehovah's Witnesses make for a lovely stew. Wait. I know nuttin' 'bout that.

I did take the week off. But that means I might actually have time to come and visit all of y'all.

Hi Galen: Mine is up! I LOVE Hannibal...hahahahaha (evil laugh) D

Peter Stone said...

Haven't seen the movie, but I've heard all about this Hannibal chap. He's nuttin' like the original Hannibal, though. Maybe he would have asked the JW to take a ride on an elephant?

There's a movie I could not bring myself to watch, even though I love Anthony Hopkins.

Alicia said...

Yikes!

Thanks everybody...
Adam, I can't access your post.
Sorry...G

Missy said...

Although I haven't always practiced my religion, because I was undecided, I'm proud to say I now practice my faith and I can assure you we'd taste good with just about anything, we're seasoned with salt and the message we share is as sweet as honey.

Thanks for the Laugh. Johnny Carson was the best at giving Witness Jokes. Jeff Foxworthy must have relatives who are Witnesses as well, he's got some great one liners.

Y'all have a great weekend.

g-man said...

Melissa...?
Nothing disparaging was said here My Friend.
No offense was meant...:-)

Missy said...

Actually Galen it's true Johnny Carson was the best at telling Witness Jokes and Jeff Foxworthy too.

I'm not without a sense of humor trust me. I'm just saying I'm sure if Witnesses were on the menu you'd know you're getting a decent meal :) and plttttttttttttttt

the walking man said...

I wonder which was worse for the JeHo's Hannibal or my morbidly obese friend friend answering the door naked?
