Welcome Dear Readers! It’s time Friday Fictioneers brought to us through the miracle of technology and the miracle of Rochell Wisoff Field’s blog Addicted to Purple.
Go over and check out the picture, write a 100-word story about it and link up! You’ll never regret it. It’s as easy as shooting fish in a barrel although we would NEVER actually do something like that! Would we?
And now for this week’s picture prompt:
It’s my birthday. But do any of these suckers care? I don’t get no respect.
The other day I saw a friend of mine, Buckminster. I says hey, Buckminster, how’s it goin? And he says hi Marla. So I told him, my name’s not Marla, Marla’s my girlfriend. He says, what a coincidence, she’s my girlfriend too!”
I don’t get no respect.
I told the Big Kahuna it was my birthday. He says Happy Birthday, Marla. I says thanks but my name’s not Marla, Marla’s my girlfriend but she has the same birthday.
Big Kahuna says what a coincidence. She’s my girlfriend too.
Until next time . . . I love you

Happy Birthday to you and your girlfriend. I don’t know Buckminster was your friend, what a coincidence. He says he’s too broke to pay respect, but wishes you a happy birthday too.
Rodney says you know Buckminster too? What a coincidence!
We respect you though Marla!!
What a hooting fun story Linda
Thanks Moonduster! So glad you liked it! 😀
Happy Bday Linda!! oh and I don’t have a girlfriend called Marla oops 😉
LOL!! That’s not what she said! 😀
Eh, me vs fish. What chance do I have huh 😛
Well when you put it that way . . . I think Rodney is now just a fishstick anyway.
oh now you’re just making him cry lol 😛
No that’s the onion your peeling to go with those fishsticks. 😀
Clever as always mom! If Rodney was reading this today he’d probably still say “I can’t get no respect”
I bet he would too. I always liked him. His headstone reads, “There goes the neighborhood”
LOL, as someone like me who has a hard time to remember his own name, I can only say one word: Respect!
Haha! Me too! 😀
Poor Rodney… he always made me laugh, but a fish named Rodney? Now that’s funny!
Thanks Motherland, so glad you enjoyed it! 😀
That Marla, she sure does get around.
Doesn’t she, Dawn? There isn’t anybody she doesn’t know. She should sell Tupperware or something! 😀
Ha! 😀 Such a fun write. Loved it.
Thanks Anmol! So glad you enjoyed this one. 😀
I read this in Rodney Dangerfield’s voice. 🙂 The story carried his comedic cadence and everything. It was good.
Glad you liked it Renee. I think I might have been channeling Rodney on this one! 😀
Somethin’ seems a little fishy about Marla. I’d say she’s headed for trouble with two guys already believing she’s their girlfriend. Too bad you didn’t have more words to work with. We could see just how many guys she has on the hook and when she’ll have to pay the price for bating all of them at once.
LOL!! Marla got lucky this time, but next time she might not be so luck, Sandra! I’d have to bring in more comedians. Maybe Groucho and WC Fields would have to make an appearance. Oh what fun they would have! 😀
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s hilarious! Fun stuff, Linda. Still laughing.
Wonderful! I’m so glad you liked it, Kent!
Holy Mackerel…something fishy about this story. I’ll admit to being hooked and reeled in. Thanks for the fish story. A hearty LOL from my koi pond to yours.
Ha ha! Well over here at my koi pond Fish #3 wants to give a shout out to Fish #7 in your koi pond! I think they know each other from a previous Koi pond ;D
You and Rodney….a match made in comedy heaven. I’d ask you where you get these ideas but I’m afraid to know.
Still laughing here.
What a nice compliment Doug! I’m lucky enough to have my brain, Peanuts, to blame everything on. Peanuts thinks up everything and I just go along for the ride! So glad you enjoyed it! 😀
So funny, Linda! It sounds just like Rodney’s voice in this, too!
Oh I’m glad you liked it! Thanks for coming by to check it out! 😀
And some of those fish have Rodney’s google eyes. Hail to the great Rodney!
Here! Here! Bumba!! 😀
I enjoyed it very much, really funny!
Oh Carmen, thank you so much. I’m glad to hear it. And thank you for coming by! 😀
I’m a fan of Dangerfield and his comedy. And I’m certain that he’d approve of how you’ve incorporated is particular brand of funny into this story. I know I do.
Ah thanks Cherry! I always liked him too! So glad you enjoyed it! 😀
That Marla must be loaded to the gills to attract so many suitors.
Haha ! Her attractiveness is off the scales! 😀
Lol Good follow-up!
