A cheeky tale …

for Friday Fictioneers … on a Wednesday!




I’m a sought-after TV and film extra.  You’ve no doubt seen me enhancing the background.

Due to my amazing physique, I’m also a body double.  That’s not Bonkiono’s butt bobbing up and down his latest naughty scene, it’s mine.  Poor chap had a boil as big as a baseball on his bum-cheek so I bobbed instead! 

I’m a stunt double too.  Yesterday I enacted a knife fight.  Tragically I pricked my little finger,  so sadly you won’t be seeing my gorgeous hand in the upcoming advert for ModernMan nail gloss. 

Naturally, I regularly walk the red carpet … ‘cos I’ve one in me bedroom!




Thanks to Rochelle for hosting, and for providing the photo, ‘Hollywood crowd’.

    Dear Keith,

    Tis the lot of the double. All the work and none of the glory. Love the ending line and, of course, the Oscar-winning frog.

      I wonder if any of today’s A-listers started as extras. Thanks so much Rochelle.

    Hope you take solace in the decent pay the doubles get, better that and remain anonymous than have the press chasing you everywhere.

    Some people have a high opinion of themselves. I loved that last line!

    One day the director will call your name – “Keith, can you say this line too?”

    Well, Keith. You did it again. I rolled my eyes and laughed my way through this one. Well done.

    I knew we were in for a bum tale when I saw “a cheeky tale” in the intro. Funny, with just a hint of sadness and frustration. A red carpet in the bedroom may be the best most of us will ever do!

    I loved the upbeat joyfulness of this. The idea of walking the red carpet every evening is a deserved reward.

    I think they work harder than the actors sometimes.
    A lot of bumps and scrapes to keep up with too.
    I enjoyed your tale, Keith. They’re always a pleasure to read.
    Have a wonderful weekend … Be Safe

    I have seen you, and your performance was outstanding. I do wish you’d stop doing those pharmacuetical commercials, though. Stick to the ones for hemorrhoid and toilet paper, that’s where the real money is.

    That’s entertainment! I loved the “b’s” part. Cute Froggie Icon (stand-in for Kermit, no doubt!)

    Ha! Ha! I am sure he is not going to be palmed off roles for a while. And Bonkiono – now that’s a name for a naughty star.

    Being a star in one’s own mind can be better. All the “fame” without those pesky paparazzi.
