By Jove! I just added a new story!

Wheezer

It's just a little short flash story, but it's a real story - some parts may even resemble the truth!

What's the fun in that? We read fiction to escape our dreary existence. We prefer fantasy, wish-fulfillment and plenty of revenge!

I never said how closely it resembled the truth. Well, you would have had to know my Ex... :P

For total fantasy, tune into the congressional and parliamentary sittings, to watch all the fantasies being put forward by the elected politicians who think they actually have any real say over the bureaucracies that run the governments.

It's up! Feedback is appreciated. :D

Wheezer

Haha! :^D

The story has been up only about 6 hours and has almost as many downloads as "Girls With Dirty Panties" got after 19-1/2 months! Voting is all across the board too! The 1-bombs and 2-bombs must be from folks not liking the bad pun I ended it on. ;^P

The ending was GREAT

I thought the whole thing was very funny and voted accordingly, but while I thought I understood the joke on the last line I did not recognize it as a pun.

The wizard of oz, one of the wicked witchs had flying monkeys.

Gave it a quick read. I thought the flying monkey comment at the end was hilarious, but like BB, I wouldn't classify it as a pun either.

Right. I understood the joke. How is it a pun? (And you'd better duck if Wheezer comes after you for the spoiler.)

Spoilers are those odd wing like things on the back of cars to change the wind flow - why would Wheezer want shark's one? Is he about to fart a lot and need to distribute it better?

Wheezer

I'm not going to quibble over calling it a pun. Punch line would probably be more accurate, as the whole story was a setup. :D

Wheezer

I am somewhat curious over the number of 1 & 2 votes the story is getting. What could be annoying people enough to vote it that low?

Maybe there are a few Wiccans who read SOL and are pissed at the wicked witch joke.

My Ex is a Wiccan. Where did you think I got my material! :D

In that case, maybe the 1s and 2s are your ex and her friends. :)

It's really scary to think she might be reading what I write - here and elsewhere!

I mean, we've been divorced for 28 years and I still refuse to leave the house on Halloween!

Do you know those Halloween decorations that started getting popular about 20 years ago? The ones that look like a witch flew into a tree or utility pole? Well, the first time I saw one of those, I got so excited, only to have my hopes dashed when I realized it was only a Halloween decoration and not an accident scene.
