Spring Slake (FF)

PHOTO PROMPT – © Madison Woods

"Say, Brandon, it sure was nice of your dad to spring for a keg of beer for our Annual Finals Time/Spring Bash!"

"Yeah, Kyle, my dad does some nice but weird-ass things sometimes."

"I understand your father is known as The Internet's Least Successful Humor Writer."

"True, I'm afraid he's almost as unfunny as @ShitMyDadSays."

"OMG, I didn't think anything could be that unfunny!"

"Well, let's tap the keg, boys!"

"AUGGHGH!"

"PITOUEY!"


"GBLAHHH!"


"Look, here's a note from my dad:  Hope you guys enjoy this keg of Listerine.  Now gargle, spit, and get back to work!"

"You know what, Brandon?  Now that's funny!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I thought it was time for a post to show off my advanced parenting skills, but unfortunately this isn't it.  Well, maybe it is; we'll see what kind of grades these guys ultimately get. Better yet, we'll see how many cavities.

Now all of you should go study the many other takes on the above picture prompt by the other Friday Fictioneers.  Just tap the keg right here, and drink up!   

Happy Annual Finals Time/Spring Bash!

LISTERINE !!! How are you going to get your date in the mood with LISTERINE ? Oh, I forget. You are dating a dentist.

Dear Perry, Dad taught the underage drinkers a lesson. If it sounds too good to be true - it probably is! Nan

Perry Block said...

Yeah, I'd like to find myself a nice dentist, about 45 years old, lucrative practice, and low standards in a date. Guess I better practice up with the kid's Listerine.

Perry Block said...

I did teach them a heck of a lesson, you're right, Nan! Happen to know what it is?

clairefuller said...

At least they'll have lovely teeth!

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields said...

And minty fresh breath.

Oh, what a delightfully nasty trick. Alicia

brudberg said...

At least they will not piss off the girls by the smell of sour beer.

Too many dates I care to recall where Listerine would have been a huge improvement! Thanks (?) for the memories. LOL

Perry Block said...

And good grades to go along with the no social life.

Perry Block said...

Yes, for once I get to be wicked AND prevail in a story! Don't expect to see that again for a while.

Perry Block said...

See that? I am a role model for a new generation.

Perry Block said...

Always glad to bring up lousy memories whenever I can.

Subroto said...

Maybe they can practice their wine tasting. Pretend it is wine and swish it around in their mouth and spit it out. Might need cheese with that whine though.

ansumani said...

I guess they can get drunk on Listerine if they really wanted to :) Nice prank!

Russell said...

Note to self--do not go to Perry's if he invites you to a keg party.

Excellent gag on the youngsters. Now get back to writing humor, you old goat.

Perry Block said...

I think there will be a lot of whining. If not, then, those kids can drink anything!

Perry Block said...

No, Listerine's pretty disgusting. But I can get drunk on power that I pulled it off.

thewritersvillage said...

Where does your dad buy his kegs of Listerine?
Costco?
I bet he gets a good price.

Randy

Perry Block said...

Just as soon as I get finished sending you your Christmas basket.

Perry Block said...

No, it's Costco for the beer, and I get a lousy price because I am a lousy negotiator!

amyreesewrites.com said...

Ha ha! I'll think twice about drinking at one of your parties. I disagree with this group of youngsters. You're hella funny all the time. This is the first kegger in the group of stories I've run across. Excellent take!

Perry Block said...

Thanks, Amy. Here, have one on me!

Dawn said...

Oh my and remember back before they had Listerine that tasted good? My dad used that stuff every day. Yuck!

P.S. Joshi said...

Dawn is right. If you use the old Listerine in that keg, you can both keep the girls away from them and keep them studying. That old stuff smelled like a hospital pharmacy. Hilarious, Perry You have a loyal following who enjoy your jokes. :D --- Suzanne

Perry Block said...

And they used to say it gave you "fewer colds, milder colds." I got bronchitis every year.

Perry Block said...

Thanks, Suzanne. Yes, I have a following who loves humor who will lynch me if they ever catch up with me.

Alistair Phillips said...

Hey, Listerine has alcohol in it! You just have to drink loads :-) Or did you cunningly use the alcohol-free one...

Irene Waters said...

At least their breath will smell nice. I don't think I'd be laughing at Dad but I am laughing at your flash.

Perry Block said...

Didn't know that but let's grab a couple of glasses and sample it!

Perry Block said...

Yes, their breath will smell nice and fresh for finals. Thanks!

Sandra Conner said...

Oh, my goodness yes, Spit! Spit! Spit! I hate that stuff! But what a unique take on the prompt. Hope your kids don't look suspiciously at everything you give them after this.

Perry Block said...

No, I think I'm going to be the one to look suspiciously at everything from now on. Thanks for writing, Sandra.
