Tuesday – Anything Possible – Creative Kue #72

Another Tuesday and time for Kreative Kue by Keith Channing. If you wonder what’s going on here, let me have Keith explain. Just so you know I’m making his mouth move. “Using this photo (below) as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; and either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at keithkreates@channing.fr before 6pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here – for reasons I have yet to fathom, pingbacks don’t seem to be working.

Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries, with links to your own blog or web site, next Monday.”

Kreative Kue #72

“Let me step back a bit and take a look.”

“Okay, but hurry up. This concrete is cold.”

“Ah, I see a problem.”

“What problem?”

“The outline has a protrusion to the right. You need to bring your leg up more.”

“Leg? Which leg?”

“Well, your right one of course. I would hurry I think the police will be back very shortly.”

“This was all your idea. Let’s lie down on the body outline you said. It will knock the fraternity brothers off their feet you said. Now you are being picky about a leg?”

“Okay, I’ll take the photo. By the way that ceremonial sword you are holding looks fake.”

“It’s supposed to look fake. It’s a joke for heaven’s sake. Who would be lying in the road with the Mystical Knights of the Sea sword sticking out of them anyway?”

“Yeah, but a little blood wouldn’t hurt and can’t you put that sword in such a way, so it doesn’t look like you are holding it?”

“No short of really sticking it in me I can’t.”

“Also, you left your keys on the mat there. That looks stupid.”

“Alright, I guess this was not such a good idea after all. Let’s go. I’m going to get up.”

“No don’t move I’ll take the shot.”

“Whoops. I slipped.”

“Hold still.”

“Do we have any more whiskey?”

“I don’t think so why?”

“I could use a drink of something.”

“What’s the problem?”

“I stuck myself with the sword.”

“OMG. Let me get a shot of that. Now that looks real.”



  1. Nicely done, Sah. Not very much scope for a varied storyline this week, was there?

    I’ll try to do better next week.

    1. I was going to go in the direction of a mumbly peg game gone horribly wrong but couldn’t pull it off.

  2. LOL. I can so easily see a couple of guys doing that, John. Have a terrific Tuesday. Thanks again for the reblog yesterday. Mega hugs.

    1. You are welcome. I liked the interview and from the reaction so did a lot of your fans. Hugs

  3. Whosoever pulls the sword from this frat bro shall be King of the Keg.

    1. Ha ha ha. Love it. Thanks, Charles.

      1. We should test our luck. 🙂

  4. We might be reading about these guys over at the Darwin Awards site before long. No doubt, this could happen.

    1. i think it did. Thanks, Dan

  5. LOL! Silly boys! Good job, John.

    1. They are aren’t they. Thanks Jill.

  6. I bet he’ll die now.

    1. Looks that way. Poor chap.

  7. Bee Halton · ·

    Ooops 🙂

    1. Yes. Thanks Bee.

  8. HaHa — drama?? Not so sure, John, but if you say so! Looks totally convincing to me, and I can see this being played out on a Friday night on a campus somewhere.

    1. Yup. Those boys.

  9. Ah, ha, ha! I knew it wasn’t going to end well. Oh boy! And it’s never the one with the idea in the first place that gets hurt. It’s always the poor ditz who gets pressured into doing the stunt. I enjoyed this a lot. Well done. 😀

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me know.

  10. Well done, John.
    Well done, indeed.

  11. I did wonder where you were going with that protrusion line; congrats on keeping it clean.

    1. The thought crossed my mind and then an angel of the writing lord told me to look the other way.

  12. I just love it, John!!
