Time To Drain The Gene Pool

I'm back once again to participate in week 168 of Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus, a fun and challenging literary meme that is an exercise in concise writing.

You can visit Jenny's blog, off on my tangent, and share your own 100-word story or poem for the rest of us Centusians to enjoy by clicking on her button below.

This week Jenny has again provided us a photo in lieu of a word prompt and instructed us to write a 100-word piece about this image.  

What follows is my belated effort for this week.  I have entitled it:

Time To Drain The Gene Pool

“Pa, ah seen on the TV this hyar story bout these rocks thet move on they own, but nobody knows how. How does yo' reckon they does it?"

“Well, Ronnie Joe, they had thet same sto'y on Fox Noos t'other day. To git th' answer they asked th' right han' of Jesus, th' Rev. Jeremiah Falfine. He explained thet th' Lo'd was usin' them thar rocks t'draw a line in th' san' as a warnin' t'th' unwarshed heathens in this hyar country t'stop all these gay marriages o' else burn in th' fires of hell.”

“Dang! Yo'd hafta be purdy stoopid not t'heed a warnin' like thet, huh pa?”

“Yup, sho’nuff.”

If you have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say Kool Whip on the side, you might be a redneck.

  1. Now this really rocks the world of Centus, what a delightful take on this open photo!

  2. They walk among us, and they breed. *shudders* Yes, I'd say you captured the Fox audience pretty dang well. :)

  3. Wait!

    I thought those bowls were collectibles?


    This was awesome, Tom!

    I loved this picture and was really annoyed that something came up to keep me from writing about my own prompt.


    Hate when that happens!

  4. It makes perfect sense. I mean, it's not like the rocks have been doing this for centuries. No they must have just started moving during the 90's when gay marriage started becoming legalized.

    Just like last week when it rained. That was God crying about gay-marriage. Rain also didn't use to happen before gay marriage. That Pa, is a genius.

    Love how clearly I could hear Pa's voice preaching in my head. Great job!
