Writing Prompt Idea
Write a funny (but clean:) limerick about this image
or a topic of your choice.
As always, this is just a suggested prompt.
(example by Edward Lear)
There was a Young Lady whose chin,
Resembled the point of a pin;
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,
And played several tunes with her chin.
Write a funny caption.

Rod the Cod had come to Hollywood
To get fame and strike it rich
But he met a sleazy agent,
By the name of Tricky Mitch

It didn't take him long,
To get his first job acting,
In a movie with no plot,
Needing talent he was lacking.

He took the part reluctantly,
Cause the ending left him cold,
Now you can see him in the picture,
His role as a California Roll.

Oh raw emotions on a plate,

WHY? said...

This painting has made my morning! It is comical and thought provoking at once. I know it's not meant to bring up philosophical discussions, but it does depict how everything that lives feels in some way. I believe that if nothing else.

....and I agree with "Why."
Take care.

James Parker said... did say limerick...

A Mafia tuna named Newman,'
Had a crime syndicate big & quite boomin'
But a lawman named Bob,
Threw a net on his mob
Newman now sleeps with the humans

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

There once was a salmon named Chuck
Who always had the best of luck
To spawn Chuck swam back
But became a grizzly bear's snack
That poor ole' unlucky Chuck.

A fish, disappointed, a hake,
let go of his lunch by mistake.
A priest tried to pray
but all he could say
was cry over spilt milk not cake.

A fish was observing some sushi
while crying and feeling quite blue-shi
I knew him, she said
and now he is dead
and it easily could have been you-shi!
