Punfest!

For Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Spark.

Jock the Shock’s an electrician, and he’s known for being a bit of a live wire!

Ask him what his favourite band is and he’ll say AC/DC, his favourite ice cream, shockolate, what does he like in buns, currents, he drives a Voltswagon van … the list goes on!

I saw him in the pub the other day and he told me his mate had been charged with battery and spent the night in a dry cell. 

I was shocked until I realised he was up to his old tricks and punning again, he just can’t resist it!

He suddenly looked a bit down in the mouth so I tried cheering him up by playing him at his own game and said ‘watts up?’, and he told me he was having a problem with his current girlfriend because the spark had gone out of their relationship.

I chuckled before realising he was being serious, and before I could say how sorry I was, he got up, walked towards the door, then turned and said ‘I’m going ohm’.

This has absolutely nothing to do with my silly story, but the prompt took me back to my childhood and an LP I played over and over again, Sparky’s Magic Piano. This is just the final part. Warning, it gets a bit emotional halfway through!

    I thought you’d never put a plug in it.
    I almost re-fused to comment!

      I’m not sure if your comment is positive or negative. You should have read it before I adaptered it!

      Very true, we share a common USP, although he’s from the USA and pays his bills with the USD

        Well, at least he doesn’t use bitcoin. That tends to fizzle, I’ve heard.

    I dips me lid to this punfest, Keith. I won’t add to it for fear of overloading the circuit. However I have so say how delighted I was to read that Sparky and his magic piano came to mind with this prompt for you as well.

      Cheers, Doug. I thought of doing a modern take on Sparky, but then I heard the piano say “Oh no you won’t”!

    ok
    (what is it about puns, especially as used above, that totally gets the brain into competitive punning mode? I accept that I must only read and not try to write, sensei)
    Fave: “…said ‘I’m going ohm’.

    Fun Six

      Punning can be infectious, like catching a cold – but without sneezing. Writing them is a challenging pundertaking but fun!
