“So it was you, Lord Covington,” Baxendale cried, “who murdered Daphne Fairservice!”

“Impossible!” he said. “I was vacationing in the Spanish mountains, during that terrible rainstorm!”

She smiled. “You couldn’t have. You see, the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain.”


This is my response to the weekly Gargleblaster challenge, which was to answer, in exactly 42 words, the question: “Who dunnit?”  This is what my muse gave me. Peculiar creature, my muse.

    who says a good history of musicals like “My Fair Lady” isn’t helpful in solving mysteries?
    LOVED IT! 😉

  2. GROAN – a pun – oh yes strange muse

  3. I’m becoming quite fond of your muse. 🙂 I’m trying to go to bed, but this dropped into my inbox at the last moment and had me literally laughing out loud. It’s an absolutely delightful piece of writing. Thank you!

  4. The rain in Spain line killed me 😉

  5. Your muse needs a coffee warning.

  6. Oops! Busted by saying too much (that never happens, right? 🙂 )

  7. ha! clever, lol

  8. Fun! I loved how you set up the ending.

  9. Clever! I love it. Great names, and the dialogue sounds just like in a classic who-dunnit movie. The last line is just wonderful.

  10. HA! Nicely done. 🙂

  11. It was a pleasure to meet your muse.

    BWA HAHAHA! I have to admit – I didn’t look to see which link I clicked, but as soon as I read the first line I knew it was you. I absolutely love your sense of humor and the absurd. 🙂

  13. That is so true! Good job, I love a good joke.

  14. Your muse is peculiar indeed!

  17. Ha! Laughed out loud at this! 😉
