I’m not at all knowledgeable when it comes to art. It wasn’t even available as a minor when I attended the University of Hard Knocks. The closest I came to collecting art was three Vargas girl pin-ups from 1973. Here’s my interpretation of this fine piece of sculpture.

Erastus was exhausted. The 80 A.D. Olympics were only eleven months away. He had been working extremely hard since his disappointing finish three years ago.
His corporate sponsors insisted he grow a third wing to boost his chances in the decathlon. The extra appendage had improved his time in the running and jumping events, but a hindrance in the discus and javelin.
This morning, Pannychis said she felt the earth move when they kissed. He smiled. It was just Mount Vesuvius rumbling.
Now, covered in dust and suffocating, he put his head between his legs and kissed his ash goodbye.

Finding ways to make words sparkle
This is the blog of a woman who is seriously on the edge and I mean right ON the edge…no, not there… just a little bit further… further than that…no, further still…just a tiny bit more… just move slightly to the right a little…no, that’s too much…just move a tad to the left…that’s right, just there…now you’ve moved too far to the left… Damn, what part of the ‘on the edge’ do you not understand? Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.
Or the three people I guilted into reading this blog, whatever.
Growing older is inevitable. Growing up is optional.
I may make you feel, but I can't make you think.

AS I TOLD THE GIRL THAT I LOST MY VIRGINITY TO, THANKS FOR LAUGHING AT ME HERE TODAY.
A Humor Blog
Stylistically Abusing Language for the Betterment of Mankind
Straight up with a twist– Because life is too short to be subtle!
An author's perspective of mystery and more.
And the worst things. And all that weird stuff in between.
OOOkaaaay–second hearty chuckle of the evening.
funny … I really enjoyed it.
you know what they say:
ashes to ashes
dust to dust
that third wing
will be the death of us!
I have come to rely on you for a weekly feel good, laugh out loud moment. You did not disappoint me this week!
Original take. I like it.
love a good pun!
What can I say? I just dropped my head down on my desk and laughed and laughed. And then laughed some more.
Where do you come up with this stuff? You must have an extremely enlarged funny bone. You really kicked some ash this week. Ron
Amusing — and very clever! Well done!
You are a real nut. I doubt it is a trait you had to develop. I have a feeling you were an acorn as a child and grew into a nut. Having said that, you are a talented writer even though I grimaced at your ending. I have a bit of class, admittedly a small bit, and could not bring myself to laugh outright.
Aw, come on, Paul. Laugh out loud. You know you want to.
You figured me out, Paul. I apologize for using the “ash” ending twice in the last six weeks. Perhaps I need some of those nutty bran flakes to loosen me up.
I see witty Russell is up to his old tricks again. Paul’s comments gave me a good chuckle as well…Russell, the acorn turning into a nut. lol.
There ought to be health advisory against eating lunch and reading a Russell Gayer submission . Yet again I need to take a damp cloth to the computer screen. Soooo funny, as ever.
badum bum. “tisshh” two shows saturday.
Oh Russell, we can always rely on you to lower the tone. There I was, reading an absurdist commentary about corporate sponsorship with a hint of romance, and … no, it’s an ass pun! Why is it that your let downs never disappoint?!
I’m over here with my own bit of commentary: http://elmowrites.wordpress.com/2012/09/21/friday-fiction-breaking-the-backs-of-angels/
The corporate sponsor line made me laugh
You nailed it, kind of. I’ve been doing Needle and the Damage Done for quite a few years now on my old guitar. But I think I wrote this trying to shake a particulary disturbing episode of Breaking Bad I saw last week. Rock on, my friend. Ron
That third wing always causes problems. Nice take on the prompt. I enjoyed it.
Ah, Russell. Funny as usual.
