Security Breech

Personally, I’m not a big fan of the CSI TV series. I must be in the minority because it seems they have developed an offering to cover every major city in the U.S. Crime is a glamorous thing, especially when done properly. That probably explains why we don’t have Redneck CSI.

I can just hear the chief investigator exclaiming, “Them four-wheeler tracks was made by a Yamaha Quadra Trak ATV with a Warn winch on the front and draggin’ a string crushed Pabst Blue Ribbon cans. My guess is the bride & groom had just left the wedding reception when the murder occurred. Some of them cans still got backwash in ‘em.”

If you’re new to Friday Flash Fiction, our Charlie’s Angel, who always solves the case is Farrah Marple Wisoff-Fields. If you’d like to participate in this exercise in madness, head over to her blog for step-by-step instructions. To view the FFF  Hollywood Squares Authors Block click here.

Fenton, Mo. – A fence-jumper was caught this week at the Friday Flash Fiction capital outside Kansas City. The perpetrator slipped past the first level of security and was almost to the Lavender Room when she tripped over an opened copy of This, That, and Sometimes the Other and became spellbound by the text.

Fictioneers from around the globe are calling Director of Security, W.M.Q. (Who Cut the) Colby for an explanation.

“Fortunately, Madam President wasn’t home at the time,” wheezed Colby. “None of the purple was missing, but we did find chips of violet on the intruder.

“I’ve ordered a full-cavity search.”

  1. Dear Russell,

    Security Breech (why that spelling? Did I miss something?) was an excellent play on the prompt, the prompt provider and the Queen and her Royal Web Blog. I loved W.M.Q (who cut the) Colby. Absolutely perfect. This is Russell Gayer in fine form, firing on all cylinders. How many does your ATV have, anyway? Redneck CSI can’t be far off. Get ready for your closeup.




    1. That was atypical Redneck spell in’ Doug. I’m ready when the network calls. Connie can perform autopsies on armadillos to determine time of death. Cause looks pretty much like a shotgun blast. I’ve got a couple of suspects, but they ain’t talkin’


  2. Dear Fence Jumper,

    It’s a good thing W.M.Q. is on the case. Loved this piece of purple prose. And thanks for the non-violet plug for This, That and Sometimes the Other. Personally autographed paperbacks can be had at a reduced price when purchased directly from the author.. 😉




  3. There’s still backwash in the beer. Ha ha! Well, at least they’re quick on the scene. Funny, as always. I bet Farrah is pleased knowing she is in good hands with WMQ on the case.


  4. Dear Russell, You really should write for SNL – You would be a Hoot n Holler on it. Love your story and nice of you to plug Rochelle’s book. Kent, I’m sure, enjoyed the shout-out. You and Perry, Kent, Plaridel, Bjorn, are funny. Love it, love it, love it! Nan 🙂


  5. Chips of violet and a flu cavity search. This can’t end well for our fence jumper. But I’m not surprised she tripped up and became captivated by our leader’s writings. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you
