FFfAW – The Butt of Jokes

“Hey! Get your hand offa ma butt. You're gonna make me fall.”

“My hand is not on your butt. I'm just standing here trying not to fall.”

“Yes it is, I can clearly feel it there. Your hand is on ma butt!”

“No way. Why would I even want my hand on your butt?”

“I was going to ask you the same question. Why is your hand on ma butt?”

“Dammit, just stop it! I am not even going to validate this ridiculous conversation.”

“Fine! Get your hand offa ma butt.”

“My hand is not on your butt!…..”



(Sorry, once I saw this picture, I couldn't think of anything butt this).

  1. LOL! I love some of your quickie shorts like this. It amazes me that you can tell a whole story in just a few words. Sometimes it is funny, other times poignant and thoughtful, other times just a sweet, happy ending. It is truly a gift dear PJ! Rock on my writer friend! ❀

  2. That was different take on the photo…love your interpretation of it. Its so great that you can look at a picture and write something funny, sometimes thoughtful post. I totally admire that PJ. Keep up the great posts.

  3. Hahahaha! PJ, you’re making me laugh out loud here. I’m still grinning! I love this funny tale. Whose hands are really on whose butt? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. I read this story like a rap song, it is so funny πŸ˜€ You observe in such details PJ, or else, I wouldn’t have seen funny side of the picture πŸ˜€

  5. Funny! I wonder why the other guy was so convinced someone had a hand on his butt — and of course, my imagination immediately goes to: GHOST HAND! (oooOOooo, cue scary music!)

  6. Joy, I love the way you find such amusing stories on the prompts! This one is really funny and I can see it happening for real. Now when I look at the prompt again, I see how you came up with the butt story! Great observation and terrific way of using the prompt.

  7. Ha, ha – I didn’t even notice it before I read your story. Does look like he’s got his hand on the other guy’s butt, though. Such an entertaining take on the prompt πŸ˜€
