Friday Flash 55...





It was the first night of his new Government job, and the
suspense was excruciating. He started rummaging
through boxes...

...Flatulent-Free Chile Beans.
...Gasoline engine that gets 255 MPG.
...Silk purse made from a sow's ear.
...Amelia Earhart.
...Little Bobby's 4th Hour homework.
(That he claimed the dog ate)
...The Macarena.
...Monica Lewinski's Cigar


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 gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Really..ha..ha...those were the days.

Your politics are very interesting. Just watched Obama's job speech.

Anyway, I am playing along:

Here is My 55

Mama Zen said...

I believe it. Every word.

Mine's up!

Janna said...

Funny!
Also disturbing, because I was wondering about Monica Lewinsky's cigar just a few days ago.
I'd better not elaborate.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Monkey Man said...

Wouldn't we all just love to know if there really is such a warehouse. Urban myth? Only a few know. Personally, I like a good mystery.

HERE is my 55 for this week.

Margaret said...

...they didn't find Elvis? This was very cute.

The Abyss of Blue

Serena said...

This guy's going to get his own reality show, isn't he? Like those "storage" and "hardcore pawn" guys.:-)

G-Man said...

Sherry....!!!
What a GREAT Idea...Thanks :-)

hedgewitch said...

You are a much kinder and milder soul than I when it comes to the political scene, Mr. G. (I've always wondered if that cigar would turn up on Ebay)

Okay I've dredged something up. It's my political hangover from torturing myself with last night's Republican debate. If you think Rick Perry is a great guy or sympathize with the Tea Party, you will not like it, I'm giving you fair warning. Please do not come read it and hate me and throw things:

Cognitive Dissonance

The Macarena?! Quick, run away!

Alice Audrey said...

I will never take offense at having you come looking for me. I'm just thrilled someone cares. Hunt me down all you want.

Doctor FTSE said...

Hi G-Man. Would you consider using a Linky Gadget for folk to enter their entries on? It makes touring the entries to read them and offer comment soooooooo much easier.

Leslie said...

Never know what you will find on the first day at work...

hmmm the possibilities

sorry I am late ( been preoccupied)


Just another script

thanks G for the weekly history lesson?

Cad said...

HERE I go again...

Nimue said...

Brian Miller said...

Titanium said...

Makes me wonder if he went back for a second day on the job! Hmmmm... wouldn't be surprised if there were quite a number of classified warehouses out there. Maybe he'll find my daughter's homework next week :)

Sorry I missed last week, G-Man! You know there’s only a little time left in the Frozen North before the snow flies- and I have miles of mountains to climb before then. I always try to bring you back something, though… so here’s a little fall flavored goodness for this most excellent Friday.

Fireblossom said...

LOL. My gracious manners are probably in there someplace too!

Mine is up, at coal black's.

That's some dubious company for the ark of the covenant.

Morning said...

fabulous collection of 55's...

Hope that you enjoy a Sunny, Funny, and Bunny Happy Weekend.

Me said...

For the love of god, burn that place DOWN. We wouldn't want the Macarena to escape!

So for the first time in a while...I'm in! Mine is HERE.

Reminds me of a scene from X-files.
