Saturday Centus

Oy. A picture prompt, this time. And it's a horrible one, too.

Like I said: Oy.



"Hello! Wake up! Wakey wakey!"


"Wake up, sleepy-head! Time to face the day! Oh, and nice sleeping cap. We don't wear those where I come from."

"Who are you?"

"I am the Ghost of Easter Future, bada-BING! And you've been very, very naughty."

"No I have not! I'm nice now. 'God bless us everyone,' remember? Tiny Tim's not even tiny anymore."

"What? Let me check my notes...what's your name?"

"Ebenezer Scrooge."

"Aww crap, you're not the CEO of British Petroleum. Sorry to wake you. I'll go now."

"Wait! Are those canoli?"


I'm not thrilled by this, but the picture prompts always throw me off....

Great post!
Even if you did not like the picture, you used it well!
Very cleverly written!

Nice idea: "The Ghost of Easter Future". I love the mix-up with the Christmas Carol.

This blue-velvet bunny-guy is giving several of us nightmares!

Best wishes,

Well it would be nice if that big blue bunny would crap some rotten eggs on BP. But then they would probably harvest the gas and charge everyone $6.00 a gallon for it!~Nice one! Happy Easter!~Ames

Now that was really funny .... great thought.

Dazee Dreamer said...

Well, I think it was a great use of the prompt. Great job.

Funny take! Stop in & read Defected Mansion

Funny! One small point, though, BP hasn't been British Petroleum for a long time, despite Mr Obama's assertion;-)

Nonna Beach said...

That was clever and well done... wasn't that photo a horror ? UGH !

Jenny said...

You are so clever!

I promise I'll do an easier prompt this Saturday. I'm torn between two and they are both words, so you're safe from a picture prompt for a little while!

I really liked the twist to this.

You always surprise me.
