Throwdowns With Bears (or: A Muse, Three Ways)

Silly Muse

Bear in his infinite whimsy declared that there should be a writing challenge this Wednesday (well today actually), in which the following words must be used.

Juicy, Vain, Star, Hidden, Shaft, Slender, Torch

Since my Muses are prone to whimsy themselves I came up with three responses…

In Script

[snap-FWOOSH] “Whoops!”

“Watch it! You almost set fire to Fred!”

“Hrmph. Arrows would make better torches if their stupid shafts weren’t so slender.” [pause] [snap-snap-FWOOSH] “…That’ll buff out.”

“You wouldn’t need light if you weren’t so vain—the whole point of camouflage paint is to stay hidden not constantly check your makeup.”

“Vain, shmaine, if you weren’t on that stupid grapefruit diet I wouldn’t been in this juicy conundrum.” [pause] [Snap-crunch-FWOOOOOOOOOOMPH!] “Dammit Fred, you really need to learn to duck.”

“You are never coming raiding again, now give me my arrows back!”

In Scribbles

In the grand tradition of Amy’s Mission Report from Imaginary Gate Team 5

Slender shaft of starlight,
In vain the hidden torches hide.
Revealed the Juicy Fruit™!
Now he must share.

In Song

And now for your moment of random.

Achem. *hums*

Shafting O Tannenbaum
Oh juicy star, oh juicy star
How slender are thy torches
In Juicy Juice™ you do reflect
Though vain compare and few respect
Oh juicy star, oh juicy star
How slender are thy torches

…I did mention it was random right?

UPDATE: OMG, Zwingli actually sang this! In harmony even!! I am now not sure which one of us is crazier… ^_~;; heh
