S is for Something to Eat


A little writing joke to brighten your weekend:


A hungry lion was roaming through the jungle looking for something to eat. He came across two men. One was sitting under a tree reading a book; the other was typing away on his typewriter. The lion quickly pounced on the man reading the book and devoured him. Even the king of the jungle knows that readers digest and writers cramp.


Have an awesome one, everybody!

Hmmm, wonder what bloggers do? I should get back to work just in case. Ha, as if I've written at all this month. Sigh.

Haha, that's a good one. Not that I want to get eaten by a hungry lion, but I sure and glad to be a reader AND a writer.

LOL.

Should I carry around a typewriter when I'm reading for protection, then?

Whenever I have to choose between laughing and groaning I always choose LAUGH! It's the most fun of the two. Great joke

Bah dum dum! Very cute.
I have no idea how you are participating in this blogging challenge? How are you finding time to write and edit and do ALL the things?

Christa-- I know! Participating in something where I had to post 19 days out of the last 21 days of first round edits didn't fall on the list of Brightest Ideas I've Ever Had. It's been tough. (As evidenced by the lack of quality posts.) Seriously. What was I thinking?

Susanne Drazic said...

LOL, funny!

Nas Dean said...

Fun! A new one for me! Loved it!

From now on I'm taking my typewriter on vacation. I hope the joke also holds true for bears.
