WordPressure – Friday Fictioneers

AnElephantCant ever be impolite
Even when he feels distress
But he does not think it is funny
When he tries to spend money
And gets no help from Support at WordPress

Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Rochelle invites us to create a story in 100 words.
And AnExasperatedElephant tries not to get too annoyed.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
That’s it.

He does not know what this is.
It might be Superman’s toothbrush.
Or Barrack Obama’s baseball bat.
Or can it be a guitar, once played by Eric Clapton, weeping through the long fade-out of Layla?
He knows it is not a set of bagpipes, because they have a purpose.
He guesses it is not a pair of cross-country skis, because they take you somewhere.
Clearly it is not a St Bernard dog, because it provides succour to folk in need.
So is it The Dark Side of the Moon?
Or WordPress Support?
They seem, to AnElephant, to be equally inaccessible.

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    A glossarch considers
    an impolite website
    and hopes
    someone (important) reads
    and (re)pents
    for money
    (Miss)spent

    Dear Elephant, You are such a clever Elephant! I agree, and I’m sorry you are having trouble getting help on line. I do like your take on this picture prompt though! New story tomorrow! Nan 🙂

  4. Dear Elephant,

    We’ll never know what it really is. So many unanswered questions. So little time. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Dear AEC,

    Having issues? Need tissues? I love your second take on this prompt as much as the first.

    Aloha,

  6. I like how we both took the fact that we don’t know what the hell it is and made something from the unknowing. I should have written a Friday Fictioneers story when Twitter suspended me for no reason – it might have made me feel a bit better for a while.

    Glad I wasn’t alone not understanding what the photo should have represented 🙂

    I’d say it’s a headless mouse. The stick up the butt? Probably so it can walk like a sorority girl.

Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
