Friday Flash 55.....





Flora Giganticus was the best gardener in Rome.
The Spring of 43 AD was perfect for Strawberries.
One plant had a berry larger than a Pumpkin!
This crimson giant attracted many admirers. And soon
the Emperor wanted it for himself. When the Centurians
arrived they shouted..."We've come to seize your berry,
NOT to praise it!"


Thank you, Thank you very much....
Beware The Ides of March!!
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!!

Beware the Ides of March, in deed. Especially when it comes to your humor, G. Groooaaan.

HERE is my 55 for this week.

Katherine Krige said...

I am out of town trying to avoid those nasty Ides of March myself. Stopped climbing the walls long enough to share 55 words with my friends though. Have a kick ass weekend G!

hedgewitch said...

That was berry good. *runs*


Mr G, I have one for you but it will go up first thing tomorrow.

Janna said...

LOL!
No, really, I laughed out loud. Memories of high school college-prep English came flooding in.
Never mind the twitching.

Beware the Ides Of March. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55!

Now, what was the best response to a really good pun? Oh, yeah... "Booooooo!"

Kick Ass, G-man.

MomsJournal said...

hahaha! *sigh* hedgewitch stole my comment.

I played and mine is up. It's a political one. :)

Yvonne Osborne said...

Flora Giganticus?? No, I'm not groaning. I didn't even roll my eyes. It's storming something awful tonight G. I hope you're snug as a bug. Please find my tribute to the Ideshere.

TALON said...

Is it okay if I groaned, G? Just a little, but I couldn't help it! :)

Have a stupendous weekend, Galen!

My 55: Picture It

Margaret said...

You've got a thing for extra large goin' on here lately! :)

Squeezed this in as I was supposed to be typing my daughter's school report (she's working on other homework and I'm helping her with that too... (I SO hate math) ugh. So, I will be commenting tomorrow sometime...

Oh heck, it is the Ides...or was. I was so busy I didn't even notice.

I hope the giant strawberry was tasty. Mine is food-related, too!

Loving the 55s today.

Akelamalu said...

*groan* then *giggle*

Mine's up.

anthonynorth said...

An excellent flavour today.
You'll find mine here.

Lydia said...

This is great! Thank you for a wisely witty nod to the Ides of March, a day that has significance in my household. My divorce from ex-husband just happened to be final on March 15. Then, over a decade later I met my now-husband whose divorce from his ex-wife fell on the same day. So we don't beware, we beamazed!

Mine is Fedelmid and Crundmáel- a jump ahead of St. Patrick's Day. Happy weekend to you!


izzy said...

Wow I love the idea of a large
berry- hope it wasn't disappointing
and bland- thanks!

the walking man said...

I had forgotten that yesterday was the anniversary that the senate deposed the Ceaser and Brutus done sliced the berry up for his cereal..was that in Shakespeare?

Here's mine: a class love story.

Mama Zen said...

Now, I know why I should beware the Ides of March!

moondustwriter said...

Craig said...

Reminds me of the old SNL bit with Garrett Morris as Chico Escuela - "Beisbol been berry, berry good to me. . ."

And, uh. . . what's an Ide?

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Gotta love the name Flora Giganticus! (Very apt, G-Man!)

Linda said...

Add some dipping chocolate and champagne. Party time!

Mine is ready at Roses to Rainbows.

Jannie Funster said...

bery interesting 55.

I knew a Flora Giganticus back East. Best clogger I ever met too. Sadly she took to the drink and clogged all over her strawberry patch and nary a plant survived.

Other Mary said...

Oooh, that is soooo bad! Of course I love a bad pun! So beware the March of Ides, and since there's nothing new under the sun why not try a little Moonshine:

hedgewitch said...

Okay, I''ve dragged myself from bed and posted mine--couldn;t miss the friday punfest...er, funfest, though mine is a non-punny offering under the serious moonlight:

Doctor FTSE said...

The Ides of March are safely past. So it should be safe to post a late 55 in good time for the next full moon

Doctor FTSE said...

And for my next trick I'll put in the correct link!

Donnetta said...

Galen: OOOOOOHHHHHH. Boy that thing is big.

Didn't get a 55er written. Sister in law is only given a month to live. Heading down to Florida. Tough time.

Will aim for week after next to write a scary one.

Best, D
