Friday 55

It's time to play tell us a story in 55 words. If you write one, let the G-man know you played.  This week's is in memory of Dr. John. No, it's NOT original, but I did get it pared down to a 55.   I can hear Dr. John groaning from heaven now.
 
Dolly Parton and the Queen arrive in heaven to find one space left. 
Each explains why she should stay.
 
Dolly points at her chest. “God made ‘em perfect.”
 
The Queen drinks a bottle of Perrier, then uses the loo.
 
“You’re in,” the Angel nods.  
“Sorry Dolly.  Even in Heaven a Royal Flush beats a Pair.”

You are too clever. No demerits for using unoriginal material. I not only couldn't pare a joke down and keep it funny. I can't ever remember a joke. This was cute.

Hilareous 55!

Titus said...

Did you really think of this yourself? (sorry, that sounds so weird - what I meant was Brilliant! Unexpected! A Punchline! etc.)
Retreating in shame...

Brian, I could never remember what beat what. :)

Monkey Man, let's hope so.

Pattiken, not clever, just miss Dr. John's groaners.

Thanks gospelwriter.

Enchanted Oak: you're most welcome!

Thom, somehow I knew you'd enjoy it.

Eric, I'll send her your way.

No Titus, my disclaimer wasn't large enough...old joke, just whittled it down. No need to retreat.

Titus said...

Had I read the intro properly, I would have noticed.
Retreating in shame, again...

G-Man said...

Oh Yeah...
Doc is groaning...
Thanks for the memories Hope
And thanks for this most excellent 55.
Thank you for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Oh groan! But that's so funny (though I can't imagine Dolly not making it in to heaven -- but if she didn't I'll be she just makes her own instead!)
