One hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers.




dales-photoLook at that odd … thing.

Is it a ball, is it a balloon, no it’s …

That reminds me, I need some oranges.

Mandarins are more appeeling, oranges give me the pip!

Very funny, seriously though I’m going to make some marmalade.

My Ma made marvellous marmalade.

Very amusing Marmaduke. I might make some jam too.

James, what happened when a truck spilt a load of strawberries on the motorway?

Go on, tell me.

Caused a jam!

Your jokes get worse. Say, why don’t we pop to the bar for a beer?

Great idea, I’ll raise a toast to your marmalade!





Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Dale for the picture

    Marmalade it is fabulous, and always better than being in a jam

    Dear Keith,

    Nothing like a pun that makes us groan within a story that makes us smile. 😀 Fabulous froggy

      That was exactly my aim, Rochelle! Laughing takes more effort than a leisurely groan!

    Mandarins are certainly more a-peeling! I love corny jokes. (How do you catch a unique rabbit. How? U-nique up on it. I couldn’t help myself…haha.) Cute dialogue and fun story, Keith!

    It’s going to be a long night. Even a dozen beers might not dull this edge.

    This was very punny … and now I have me a harking for some jam. Or marmalade. Even better … 😉

    Great stuff, Keith. Puns and alliteration, all in one little story 🙂
