Friday Flash 55.....




Socrates was a man of vision.
His teachings prompted mankind to
question the nature, purpose, and properties
of the Universe.
Thank goodness his students Plato and Xenophon
shared his inquisitive philosphical genius.
He had less visionary disciples!
The worst of the lot, Dildonyus, saw the World as
a Dank Jungle...Plunging ever deeper into Darkness!!


We all reach Immortality in our own way....
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 Dankest Darkest Host from coast to coast..
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

i think the 'size' of your philosophy may have scared some people off...

Okay, you got me. I laughed out loud!

lime said...

lmao, how quickly you descend. you crack me up, gman!

Janna said...

It's fun to say "Xenophon" over and over again.
Mostly because it sounds like a Martian overlord who plays the xylophone.

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

PattiKen said...

You are such a rascal, G.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Such a philosphical tease you are. Dildonyus indeed. I'm never first, but I wrote Drinking A Dead Man's Beer for your Friday gig.

Bodhirose said...

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

I don't know who deserves the bigger eye roll - the x-rated philosopher of your imagining, or that tedious bore, Plato!

I wrote of a philosopher with simpler tastes: Road to Pietown

janaki nagaraj said...

Perrrleeese G-Man! This is a family blog! It's DIONYSUS, the God of Boozing, Drunken Revelling, Puking on the Pavements, Beating up cops and each other, rippin' the drawers of drunken whores, setting fire to litter bins, throwing empty bottles around, and what was I saying about a family blog?

Jinksy said...

And sometimes, even honesty may be questioned, let alone the Universe...

Dildonyus??? I'm not going to say where my mind went with that one. I'm sticking with the dark philosophers this week, though.

A recipe for disaster here.
