Three Line Tales

The Symbol

tltweek112We always enjoy the company of literature majors.  We often read William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence” too.       

It’s Holy Week, heading toward Easter.   Now we can inspire everyone to clean up his act.   



People always claim we’re supposedly not all that bright but hey we’re mighty good as symbols.




Here’s yet another of me attempts at 3LIneTales

Icelandic Puffins

tltweek111Harold and Margret were out on their latest weekly jaunt to the local zoo, when, from out of nowhere, he was plum stunned:   


“Get a load of those Icelandic Puffins!!” he screamed. When his girlfriend wanted an explanation, he told her of all the enchanting tales he’s heard from Anna, his supervisor at work, who’s from Iceland, and his Facebook friend Lisa, who loves it so that her very nickname is Iceland.

“I’ll give you one thing,” Margret conceded. “It’s not too hard to keep you happy. Just give you a couple friends who can tell you about some exotic location, and a couple birds from there, it’s as if you’re a native!”

The Apple Of His Eye

“But it’s an APPLE!!” Wiggums reminded his friend Krausmeyer.tltweek110

“We simply can’t possibly expect people to take us the least bit seriously if we ask them to send their youngsters to a school That’s such a dead ringer for a fruit!”


“Show some imagination for once in your life, Old Bean,” his frustrated sidekick pointed out. “All throughout mankind’s existence, the Apple has made a difference~from Adam and Eve to William Tell, From Johnny Appleseed to the Beatles!”


“Besides everything else,” Krausmeyer continued ebulliently, “just wait until you get a load of the most important thing.” After a long stunned pause, he continued:
The seven mail boxes represent the fact that an apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
