Friday Flash 55.....



Returning to his neighborhood after a short "Vacation" upstate,
Carmine's welcoming committee was waiting. There was.....
Fat Denny
Georgie White Sox
Tony Douche
Vinnie Sardine
Big Fat Denny or BFD
Jimmy Garlic
Frankie "One Ball"
Donny "The Whale" Beluga
Hymie "The Chink"
Upon seeing Carmine walking up the sidewalk, they all shouted in unison...
FRUITCAKE!!!!!

Ahhh, The Hood...
If you or any Douchbag 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!!

I would much rather be called "Fruitcake" than hang with that bunch of bullies. Poor Carmine. I was at the receiving end of a lot of bullying growing up... made me tough in the end, though.

My Butterfly

lol - oh, the wonders of the 'hood. My old gang is scattered across the globe now, but this brought back some funny memories, Galen. :)

Colorful bunch--but no cowboys??? Here there would be cowboys--though not back in my old Chicago stomping grounds--dere dose guys wouldda fit just right--especially the White Sox. ;_) Love the whole BFD.

One about what's on everyone's minds around here:

Heart Defended

Such a great array! Memories flooding back now... except I wasn't called "Fruitcake" either!

Here's mine: Discovery

Alice Audrey said...

Better a fruitcake than a whale.

Mine is up

Janna said...

Poor Frankie One-Ball.

I'm trying to decide which would smell worse: Vinnie Sardine or Jimmy Garlic.

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

They don't give out those kind of nicknames in the 'burbs, that's for sure!

Here's a bit of my old 'hood: You Can't Go Home Again

Akelamalu said...

LOL those names are just soooo funny. What a welcome home.


I'm playing this week. x

They Were Wrong

hope said...

Well, I'M on vacation until June 3rd but I'm hoping the Mob isn't awaiting my return.

No more like a gaggle of senior citizens who are angry that I haven't been fixing them lunch once a week.

Happy Memorial Weekend!

Karen M said...

I'm pretty sure I grew up with them! Make it past that bunch, and you are going to have the best damn pasta you've ever had....

izzy said...

Ha-ha , the hood! Good names! I never had a front stoop, but sat on a few!

Sorry, not a douchebag, didn't write one this week. :) actually I DID but just ain't got around to tidying it up and publishing. But I'm here!

Sounds like the Sopranos.

We'd do rhyming names like Harry the scary cherry, Joe Joe from Kokomo, Jan Jan the frying pan and Pat Pat the fat little rat.

Vanessa V Kilmer said...

Are you FRUITCAKE? Does the G in G-Man stand for Girlie?

[I'd fit right in the hood.]

I'm sorry for being mean.

[Maybe not.]

Flash 55 - and the green grass grew all around

Mama Zen said...

As long as they didn't BRING fruitcake . . .

Raven said...

Someone said pasta. I'm hungry :)

Been a while but I thought I'd drop by and see what I've been missing. I posted something too. Hope life has been awesome :)

This made me laugh so much, making your 55 really truly a BFD! Those are such creative names; you really brought the image to life, G. :)
Happy weekend to my pouty friend!

You hangin' wid the boyz in da hood? Makes me wonder just exactly what Carmine went "on vacation" for with a nickname like Fruitcake!

Here's mine, with a little eye candy at the end:

Turning Off Autopilot

Fireblossom said...

Frankie One Ball cracked me up.

I had my FBF thing this week, but hope to be back at the 55 ranch next week!
