Sorry about the picture confusion. Let's try this again. Oh, and thanks to everyone who brought the issue to my attention. I really don't know what happened.
UPDATE! PB is back and you should all go over to his blog to send well-wishes because I'm sure he'd like to read them. I hope he won't begrudge us this interim challenge, which I think we should all dedicate to whatever we feel would be a good way to help him get better.
Your challenge for this Friday, 9-23-11, is to use the picture above (the source of which I don't know) to write a flash fiction piece. It should contain an even number of words. In addition, it should include a quotation from a poem or song lyrics. Because I want to be crazy and all. Also because I don't feel like counting. Giving us a link to the song or poem you're quoting would be nice, just so we can enjoy the whole thing. And I guess Biblical passages will be allowed too, if you're really being crazy. Hate mail should be directed to Pat Robertson, please.
I will collect entrants, so if you leave a comment below I'll include you in the list. And I don't administer spankings because I know all you deviants enjoy it too much. If anything, if you break the rules, I'll be very disappointed in you and shake my head sadly as if to say, "You're only cheating yourself, you know." Yeah, that's right, I'm hardcore.
You could link back here (well, linking to the blog would be best since I'll be putting the entrants list on my submission, which I haven't posted yet so you can't link to it) but consider giving PB a bit of credit as well, since I'm really just stumbling around in his shoes.
