Friday Flash 55.....






Sometimes you wonder.....
Do the affluent people buying those huge gas-guzzling SUV's actually pay
attention to the price of gas?
Do the Goobers in the blog "The People of Wal-Mart", know how ridiculously
gross they look to others?
Does Michelle Bachman know how stupid she sounds?
Why do some people never know when to STOP.......Or Let Go?



Fortunately, some people DO know when to let go.........
If YOU know when to let go, or have 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!!

Ha, it seems that those who buy the gas guzzling cars pay no attention to the price of gas. Not only the SUVs....but some of those monster trucks. I guess it is just different strokes for different folks!

Here is my 55:  Sleepless

Gabriella said...

Yes, some people do look or sound ridiculous. At least, they make us smile. Maybe this is their mission!
I hope I do know when to let go - at least most of the time - and I have written a 55. Here is my weekly offering: Jailed.

Gabriella said...

PS - If these guys had to pay as much as we do on the other side of the ocean, they might buy smaller cars.

I was feeling a bit ucky when I got here, but after that second pic, I am now officially sick. And that last picture was the scariest of all--that's not a family, it's a middle school.

I got nothing tonight G(but a fever) but if I am revived by some slumber, will try to post something tomorrow.

Okay, that chick is gross! But G Man's Friday 55-fest never is!

Mine is up:

One day my son and I were walking into Walmart when he started mouthing off about the goobers. I pointed out that we were probably the oddest looking people there right then.

Mine is up

I think stupid people are unaware...which is why they are stupid, I suppose. :)

My 55: Punctured

I'm still trying to figure out that second photo. WTH IS that??!!

I was talking with an affluent friend the other day -- she never cares about where she buys gas, or the price. What the heck, again.

happy party day!! xo

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

They tend to stick with their own kind, where by the standards of their companions, they're just fine.

That's my theory, at any rate.

Here's mine: Terlingua Afternoon

Janna said...

This reminds me, I haven't been to People Of Wal-Mart in a long time. I should probably go there and look around again, just to make sure I'm not up there. ;)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here, where I tell the tale of the Great Hairy Chicken Incident of 2014.
Partially fiction, partially true.

(*shudder*)

Lydia said...

Thank you for your profound 55, G. It cuts to the chase and speaks to things that drive me crazy, too.

Mine this week: Roots

Mr. Charleston said...

Yes, I wonder those things all the time. So, I've decided to join them to find out. Gonna get myself an old Lincoln, grow a beer gut, wear thongs and not give a shit! I'll let you know how it turns out.

500!! Whoop! Whoop!

Laura said...

excellent questions… mindlessness is the only reason I can imagine any of these things take place.

fifty five are toward the bottom of the post, but they are there:-)

'it was thursday'


"the way circles & angles interact
depends on position
of the vertex

where two lines connect---

in 3 out of 4,
1/2 plays a part..."

"pardon the interruption---
these are your afternoon announcements---

the talent show's been cancelled
for lack of acts"

& tonight they'll Vine
videos pretending to be whales
in the produce aisles.

If they desire an SUV and can afford it, they don't bother about their gas price. Thanks G-Man.

I'm afraid that I will have to spend the rest of the day trying to get that second image out of my head!

Funny you should mention letting it go...

Grandmother (Mary) said...

In Europe gas prices are higher so we drive smaller cars that are more fuel efficient. Simple. But on a more positive note: http://journeyintoelderhood.blogspot.it/2014/03/a-runners-55.html

MASSIVE eye-bleach, one and all, G-man. I'll cry me a river, my eyes full of brine ~

Björn said...

Hi there... indeed in some cases the not stop talking is the worst of all... I brought you twitter and a collection of today's words in various wordgames...

Aweigh!

Other Mary said...

I think the answer to all your questions is: NO!

And that is the answer to, "Other Mary, did you write a 55 this week?"

Sorry Galen, but I'll be back next week. :o)

Helen said...

My blood BOILS when I attempt to park my little VW Cabrio Convertible between two of those GD tanks ... there, I've said it. Michelle B? Well, we know she is stupid.

55 words tonight, just for you:

THE POETRY POLICE ARE HOT ON MY TAIL WANTIN’ TO CHARGE ME WITH
OF ALL THINGS IMPERSONATING A WRITER, FOUR HUNDRED NINETY SIX COUNTS TO BE EXACT. MISDEMEANORS FELONIES DOESN’T MUCH MATTER

G-Man said...

Mary...:-)

Helen...Thanks

Helen said...

BREAKING NEWS!
Wolverines beat the Buckeyes ~~~
YEA, YEA, YEA, YEA!!!!!!
(I like Brian's format, quick and simple.)

Yvonne Osborne said...

Hi! Don't have anything in 55 words but I wanted to stop and say hello. As to your questions....MB has no idea how silly she sounds or she would go away. And people who buy those vehicles probably don't even pump their own gas.

Have a great week! I promise I'm still lurking.

Margaret said...

I actually knew someone with 19 children… and was amazed at how organized everything was - and honestly, how well behaved all the kids were. I only had 2 at the time and mine were little hellions (I was embarrassed ;)

GAB said...

Oh no....is that car a cad? ha ha cause that was what I was looking at to buy...and yeah I didn't think about gas I thought it used about the same as my Durango does. all I wanted was something better looking that what I have I mean after all my Durango is like a 1999 and rusty and falling apart so I wanted something new with 3rd row seating and I seen this cad that looked like it would fill the bill. Crap now you have made me feel like 2 inches tall! hehe Guess I will keep looking
