Microfiction Monday

Welcome to Microfiction Monday, where 140 characters paints a picture...or photo. Tell Susan if you play. But remember, she's probably tuckered out from packing. So let her read in peace.

This week's photo

Quick, here comes Pelosi!

I understand that if you keep your head down
and walk at a brisk pace,
you are rendered invisible to Congress.

Well said my little rabble rouser.
I have heard the same thing
Good job, very very funny!

Maybe she will step in the dog poo at Sylvia's or Peggy's that wench. Love this. Well done my friend.must be our entire Congress walks with their head down. ROFLMAO. Good job with this.

Jingle said...

what creative fiction!

Monkey Man said...

Funny bit of political humor. 140 is a challenge - is that with or without spaces?

Susan at Stony River said...

I imagine it's hard to invisibilize when you're wearing orange robes and a splash of pink! But sometimes it seems Congress is aware of no one else in the country at all, doesn't it?
Great job!

Oops, I am shamed by my lack of knowledge of American affairs of state. Don't get it. I know it's Nancy, I think, but I don't know what she's done!

I did stay with the Krishnas for a month once in a chateau they owned in France. Very lovely time, if a bit surreal.

This was good Hope, I wonder if that would work here north of the 49th.

Peggy: that woman single handedly has given women a bad name!

Thom: they don't see us when they're heads are up. :)

Thanks Jingle.

Monkey Man: I think that's without spacing. Susan gave us this great link that does all the counting for us!

Thanks Susan. You're right (and forewarned) that American politicians are the worse!

Titus: she's Speaker of the House here but she's not a great specimen of women and power...she's more of the screeching banshee type. :O

Bill: I hope for your sake, you don't have such knuckleheads on your side of the line. :)

Janel said...

If only that was possible. I'd like to be invisible sometimes!

Quilly said...

I wish I could be rendered invisible to the IRS. Any tips for that?!

every body is invisible to congress unless they have a fistful of money.

nice piece though.

I think ohmmm is a mantra, but yes it blocks out noises.
Thanks for your comment.
day by day

Hey, another good 'un!

(Thanks for dropping by, I'm still here! Got back from Paris the same day my uncle Cyril passed away, so it's been a busy time!)

Still no news on our pal. :¬/

Giggling here! Well done :-)

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

Too late for that Hope, our beloved country is full of Knuckleheads in Government.

hope said...

Janel: you and me both!

Quilly: maybe we could get you elected then your first order of business would be to abolish the IRS? :)

Bt: they sure make us feel that way!

Map: glad you returned safely. Sorry to hear about your Uncle. My sincere sympathy.

jablog, that is my hope; to make folks giggle. :)

Bill:is nowhere safe?
