Flash Fiction #12


Humor With Impact

I didn’t often receive packages here at my little accounting office.  I didn’t remember ordering any supplies, yet, here was Mr. FredEx, with a basketball-sized parcel.  What could it be?  There’s a note on top.

“Dear Brother;

I found this at a yard sale the other day and thought of you.  Find a place to display it.  Just a reminder that you’ll always be my favorite ButtHead.

Your loving sister


Ha, ha, very funny.  I’d been subjected to this type of humor for years.  The Amish, at the Pioneer Museum, sell hand-made brooms.  Perhaps turnabout is fair play – Witch.

  11. Ha. I love sibling rivalry and ribaldry. Perhaps the broom should be placed or shoved in a specific location? Randy

  13. Sounds like this is a feud that’s been going on for years and won’t be over any time too soon.


  14. Awesome wordplay! Sibling rivalry always makes for the best stories. Very clever- I love it!


  15. I didn’t realize you had taken a picture of me that day I crept into your office on a surveillance mission. I must be more stealthy in the future…
