The Stones

The world thought it had seen everything until the last ever performance of The Greatest Rock n Roll Band in the World.
When I’m drivin’ in my car…
I’m a pretty tolerant guy but, when I’m told that sodding band are launching The Nonagenarian Tour, I decide enough is enough.
And that man comes on the radio…
In the audience I wait patiently until he wails that he ‘can’t get no, no no no…’ then I act.
He’s tellin’ me more and more…
I pull from my inside pocket a large and powerful catapult.
I pull from my other inside pocket a frozen turkey.
About some useless information…
No comments about a ‘fowl’ deed, please.
Supposed to fire my imagination…
But instead I fire my missile, neatly decapitating Mr Jagger and smiting Mr Richards fatally between the eyes.
I get no end of Satisfaction* from killing two Stones with one bird.

*great double entendre!

    Damn! For a second I had a ‘visual’ of this group (both writers and Readers) as we might have been in our respective student days, careening into young adulthood.

    Now, that’s not overly noteworthy, given how everyone spends an equal number of years being younger as they do being older.
    What makes me laugh (and brightened a workday afternoon) is I don’t have the slightest doubt that I would recognize each and everyone the moment I stepped from the time machine.
    And the current use of audio notwithstanding, some of us would be more recognizable (cough..ceayr cough ) than others
    fun story

  2. Unlike the turkey (what a waste) they were well past their best-before date. Hopefully, they sang their ’64 No. 1 ‘It’s All Over Now’ before you destroyed them!


  3. A fabulous piece of handiwork here! Now, while I love The Stones and a great double entendre as much as the next septuagenarian, I’d like to know if you’d be willing to do this exact same thing with the group we all know is REALLY The Greatest Rock n Roll Band in the World – The Beatles!
    What say you, C.E.? Do you accept my proposition? 😉
    PS – I Love You 💋

    Just for fun, here’s a little something I wrote back in 2019:

  5. Now you’ve gone too far, CE. Taking the Mick is borderline acceptable but once Keef leaves the planet we’re all doomed. Fie upon your frozen turkey!

    I knew exactly who you were writing about Phil’s illustration, and you totally confirmed it. Capacious pockets, indeed!

    I’m still laughing – priceless.
    Wonderful, off-the-wall-crazy-clever piece of writing!
    Phil’s artwork and the music just complete the experience.
