Flash Fiction #200


PHOTO PROMPT © Linda Kreger 


I’ve never heard of a scavenger hunt for jokes.

There’s a couple! Scoop them up.

What’s the difference between a porcupine and a Porsche?….
….The porcupine has the pricks on the outside

My doctor told me that I have insomnia….
….but I’m not going to lose any sleep over it

You find them everywhere. Grab that pair!

What did the fish say when he swam into the wall?….

My girlfriend hates it when I joke about her weight….
….She should lighten up.

One more, then home.

What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50?….
….A politician


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use here Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.


Well, I’ve done it. I’ve been at this long enough to have reached the FF #200 milestone. Thank you Rochelle for having the patience to herd all these cats, and thanx to all the rest of you who come to read my silly stories.

  1. Dear Archon,

    Mazel tov on reaching the 200 mark. Thanks for the groaners.

    Huzzah for reaching 200 dad… Who would have thought you would have had so much fun doing this, eh?

    Ha ha – politician with a 50 I.Q. This is very amusing!


    • Archon's Den says:

      Who said Trump?? I didn’t say Trump! Oh wait, he wasn’t a lawyer – he was an Entrepreneur.
      The last 50 IQ president, George W. was quoted, “The French don’t even have a word for entrepreneur.”
      The problem with political jokes is, sometimes they get elected. 😯


  4. I’m a newbie and here for the fun and the jokes!


  5. 200, eh? So, you’ve written 1 a year, then… 😉

    Just kidding. Extreme congrats. I fully understand the challenge of a long-term writing commitment…


    • Archon's Den says:

      So, you’re the one that Cal Coolidge broke his silence to warn me about??! 😉
      Thanx for the sympathy. I’ve been at this for almost 8 years. Robert Heinlein said that, to be a writer, you have to pound out 2000 words, every day. I’m too fractured for that. I don’t compose anything for a week – or 2 weeks – then assemble 5 posts in 3 days – or 8 posts in 5 days. The last batch, I did 16 posts in 7 days. Of course, one of those, I blatantly stole, and just filed the serial numbers off. Four more were assemblies of jokes that I’d gathered, that went into a cache in 1 day.
      Thank a nonexistent deity that I learned early, to write ahead. 🙂

    Did ya hear the one about….?
    Nah, I’ll leave these up to you. You have an endless supply!
    Wow 200 FF, eh? Impressive.

    Funny jokes.


  8. msjadeli says:

    Nice chuckles for a Sunday afternoon, Archon.


  9. Haha I had a couple of laughs over that.


    • Archon's Den says:

      And…. I missed your lovely comment, also. Sorry ’bout that. 😛 Please feel free to visit again. Joke posts are published every second Monday, but you might be interested in some of my other rants too. 🙂
