It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s amusing photo was provided by Luther Siler. Thank you, Luther.
I had to really trim this piece. I’m going for funny. I hope it still has the frame intact at least. Let me know if these detectives seem remotely familiar.
If you’d like to participate, all are welcome. Here are instructions.
The Case of Missing Real Big Bird
The trail of yellow feathers lead the detectives to Lulu’s door.
“You’re late,” Lulu said, blowing on painted fingernails matching her ruby-red chaise lounge. A bird costume drooped in the corner like an uninvited guest.
“This is the bird?” Hughes retrieved a feather from his coat and compared it with the bird costume, fumbling with his magnifying glass. “It’s synthetic.”
“Aren’t all feathers?” Lulu asked.
“When the man ditched the costume was he naked?” Watkins asked.
Lulu nodded. “This suit is hot.”
“This suit is a fake,” Hughes said. “That means the real Big Bird is still out there.”
“If you say so.” Lulu shooed them out.
