It’s Sunday again!

Sunday Photo Fiction



zzzzzzzzzzzBilly’s ambition was to be a famous ventriloquist and perform on the stage of a West End theatre. He made it to the West End, but only to the pavement outside a theatre where he stood with one hand up a monkey puppet’s bottom, the other shielding his mouth. He called the monkey Sammy. Sammy called him Gilly.

He did get a career-break though. He was invited to perform on local radio. Being on the radio should have been easy for a ventriloquist, but it wasn’t a great success as the presenter had to keep reminding Billy he should be speaking up close to the microphone, not Sammy. Silly Gilly.

Recently he was cautioned for inappropriate behaviour after pinching a girl’s bum. He blamed it on the monkey of course, but he didn’t get away with it and was banned from performing there in future. He chucked Sammy away. I’ve no idea what Billy’s doing now.

    I did like that Sammy calls him Gilly.
    And that he’s back on radio, doing mime.

      B is difficult for even good ventriloquists to speak! I’m off for a gottle of geer!

    I’m sure there’s still a future for him somewhere. Butlins perhaps? Or he could try Britain’s Got Talent.

    He needs to hit Time Square. No doubt he would find his audience. Nicely done, Keith.

    Hot off the presses this one… I just read in the paper of another ‘one’ accused.
    Repeat offenders need some serious ‘finger’ removal? Maybe they’d get the ‘point’.

    In today’s reality show era, he could have easily bagged his own show which traced his failures in real time.
