Farcical Aquatic Ceremony

by on August 9, 2013

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt. I may have been slightly inspired by a certain Monty Python sketch involving Dennis. 😀

“Miriel! Your turn!”

“Right. What sword am I distributin’ this time?”

“Do Dragon’s Tooth, will you? It takes up space so.”



“Blasted pond. Next year I call stone.”

I wanted stone…”

  1. Cute and funny!

    This is cute. I like little twists on old tales.

  3. The title alone had me giggling.

  4. I know way too little about the Monty Python sketches, so i miss the fun.

    • Happily, I see someone further down has linked to the particular sketch on point, which I should have done.

  5. watery tarts distributing swords is not a good way to elect a king?

    Ah, ye maker of Kings! Far cleverer than appears at first blush. I am enjoying your post more with the passing of time. Perhaps, the link to “Constitutional Peasants” would be helpful to others.

    • Thanks for the comment, and the link; I should have linked to that myself. A brilliant sketch, that.

  7. Such a unique idea. 🙂
    Also, I freaking love Dennis.

  8. I like this playful take on the prompt. The last line made me smile. 🙂

  9. Ha! People are being oppressed all over…

  10. Nicely done! Love your title as much as I love the rest of the piece! Somehow I suspect I’ll spend the rest of my day watching Monty Python videos…

  11. Ha! Loved it – I have such a soft spot for Monty Python allusions… 🙂

  12. I like the light hearted comedy.
