Today at the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie blog, our task is to write about the improbable, how we can be manipulated by the information we are subjected to.
You could reflect on the current world situation.
You could construct a totally fictitious tale.
Let the prompt lead you and have fun.
“We interrupt this program to bring you late-breaking news at Mar-a-Lago—President Donald Trump’s Winter White House. Let’s join WFML’s Bambi-Sue Binghamton, live in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. Over to you, Bambi-Sue!”
“Thanks, Chuck. Yes, that’s right. North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un and his wife, Comrade/Respected First Lady, Ri Sol-ju have just landed here in Mar-a-Lago for a week-long holiday with President and Melania Trump. It is believed the two couples plan to spend time “Slinging” meaning they will binge-watch live-streaming TV. Not only that Chuck, but Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara are rumored to join the two couples mid-week. A good time should be had by all. Back to you, Chuck-eroo!”
“Thanks, Bambi-Sue. Now, do we have any idea what prompted this little get-together, and what shows they’ll be watching?”
“Chuck, one can only speculate. As for what they’ll be watching, my guess would be “War and Peace.” Or maybe MAS*H reruns.”
“Ha-Hah! You slay me, Bambi-Sue.”
“I know, Chuck. This is Bambi-Sue Binghamton with WFML reporting live, from Mar-a-Lago, Florida.”
