Fifty-seven words …

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Yodel.




Some can yodel when they sing, but Bert can yodel when he talks. He decided to put it to good use and become a ventriloquist!

That’s him over there, hoping to entertain the shoppers, one hand up dummy Dolly’s you-know-where, the other covering his mouth.

“Hello Dolly,” says Bert.

“Hello Gert,“ says Dolly.

He’s not very good!

      He probably is. One of the UK’s all-time favourite comedians, the late Tommy Cooper was famed for making a mess of everything he did, especially when attempting magic!

    LOL!That throwaway line about “one hand up…” is really amusing. I think I’m just an immature boy trapped in a man’s body!

        Indeed. Please pardon my asking, Keith, do you live near Wales? I seem to recall you do.
