Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Alicia Jamtaas.

Is Global Warming real?
I’ve been giving this some thought recently.
Well, since I saw that giraffe on the beach.
If a giraffe gets drowned, I think to myself, what about other animals?
Lions, llamas, hyenas, hedgehogs?
Monkeys, unless the trees are very tall.
And I wonder if elephants can swim around using their trunks as snorkels.
Like wee submarines with periscopes, y’know?
I imagine a one-tree desert island crammed with elephants in sun-glasses and deck-chairs, all waiting for the last coconut to fall.
I don’t know where they get deck-chairs.
But I’m definitely against Global Warming.
