Microfiction Monday

And once again, it's time for Microfiction Monday! Above is this week's picture and below is my entry. Take part here.

For European readers, taking part in a regular blog event with regular rules like this is making me feel exactly like those poor souls who have to write the script for Have I Got News For You, finding a new way to say 'And now to our final missing words round. . . .' every week :)

The animated version of The Princess Bride hit a snag when the editor asked why the animator decided Buttercup had to have some potatoes.

Sorry, but that is clearly Fezzik at the window. I wonder where he got the crown. . .


  1. LOL!! I had to squint but yep -there be Fezzik!
    Take care

  2. Fun one for the day!!! Enjoy your week!


  3. Ellen;

    Princess Bride, great take for the picture this week. I see Fezzik, I do!

  4. Thanks all, glad you all enjoyed it :)

  5. Love it, Ellen!

    And what a beautiful photo...

    And I LOVE 'Have I Got New for You'!

  6. Love that movie and your take. :O)

  7. The guy carrying the bricks does look like a shorter version of Fezzik the giant. I thought those things on the wooden tray at her feet were little straw hats..doh!! They could be covered baskets of potatoes. Clever take on this week's picture!

  8. A very different take on it -- wonderful.

  9. What a great way to reference that terrific movie! Loved it :)

  10. One of my favorite movies of all times!!!

    "Stop it, I mean it!"
    "Does anybody want a peanut?"

    Ahh--sheer poetry...LOL

    Have a great week. Cheers!

  11. Thanks everyone!
