THE FUN OF THE FAIR
” Sergeant : assistance needed at once, there’s trouble at the fairground.”
“What kind of trouble ?”
“Brawls, cat fights, punch ups and it’s spreading.”
“Unit’s on its way now.”
“You’re the nightmare brother !”
“What ! Says you Mr Blue Eyed Boy- oh so perfect. You deserve a black eye..”
“Belle, your Jo and me, we’re seeing each other. It’s me he loves.”
“You invited them, the visitors from Mars. They’ve stayed so long, they’ve borrowed my pyjamas.”
“Sergeant, we’ve found the source of the problem : a stall selling truth cookies. We’ll take the offenders into custody until the effects wear off. ”

Truth is way too dangerous to be handled like this…

Great comment Bjorn. Thanks for reading.

Such a funny twist. Truth cookies! Delightful.
March 24, 2019 at 6:03 pm
Pleased you enjoyed the twist – appreciate your feedback.

This story, and the comments, crack me up, thanks for the good laugh. Truth serum sounds embarrassing, but there’s one advantage: that stealth invasion from Mars is finally public. Beware of the green guys in pyjamas!

Pleased you’ve been entertained ! Thanks for reading.
March 22, 2019 at 9:42 pm
Oh my, a stall selling truth cookies. What delightful creativity.
March 24, 2019 at 5:55 pm
Thanks for your comment, appreciate your feedback.

You are welcome.

Visitors from Mars wearing pyjamas? Next they will see Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Those cookies definitely have something in them 😉 Fun story.
March 22, 2019 at 11:57 am
Tee hee ! Thanks for your comment – pleased you enjoyed the story.

Martians borrowing pyjamas! I thought that is a typical earthly behaviour. Martians are fast learners, it seems.

Great comment Abhijit, thanks I appreciate your feedback.

No good can come from always telling the truth!
What an original take, Francine!
March 22, 2019 at 12:11 pm
I appreciate your comment Dale. Interesting point. Truth telling sounds like a good idea ! But not all the time as you say.
March 22, 2019 at 1:26 pm
Do we really need to be told we really do look fat in those pants? No, I think not… 😉

Ha ha – imaginative take on the photo prompt!

Oh, dear, we gotta hate the ‘truth’ cookies, don’t we. Ach, but they just might be … well, true! Love the story!
March 22, 2019 at 12:18 pm
Great comment Jelli – thanks, much appreciated.
March 21, 2019 at 5:31 pm
What a good idea you came up with. Very funny, and enjoyable.
March 21, 2019 at 6:21 pm
So pleased you liked the story – I appreciate your feedback.
March 21, 2019 at 11:45 am
This reminds me of the movie “Liar, Liar.” Truth cookies could be very dangerous. Imaginative story.
March 20, 2019 at 9:05 pm
Wait, visitors from Mars?? Maybe they’re the source of the truth cookie technology?!
March 21, 2019 at 9:11 am
Aha !! Truth serum from Mars…why not? Thanks for your comment.
March 20, 2019 at 5:54 pm
Nice write! Oh what a world if such a thing really existed!!
March 21, 2019 at 9:17 am
Thanks for your comment Violet. Glad you liked it.Wonder what a world with truth cookies would be like ?
March 20, 2019 at 5:34 pm
Watch out for those truth cookies
March 21, 2019 at 9:23 am
Thanks for your comment Larry. Do you think truth cookies are a force for good ? I’m not sure….
March 21, 2019 at 10:20 am
No because they take away man’s free will
March 20, 2019 at 5:28 pm
What a fun idea. Truth cookies! I love your examples of inconvenient truths!
March 21, 2019 at 9:28 am
Thanks so much Penny – appreciate your comment. I did enjoy choosing awful revelations ! Ones that would cause a brawl.
March 20, 2019 at 5:19 pm
Can you imagine anything worse than hearing what people really think of you? Yeeks!
March 21, 2019 at 11:14 am
Great comment Ali. Quite a scarey prospect, I agree.
March 20, 2019 at 4:25 pm
Ban those cookies immediately.. The political system would never survive them
March 20, 2019 at 4:39 pm
Very good Neil ! Can you imagine Brexit negotiations with truth cookies ?
March 20, 2019 at 4:41 pm
I think there’s way too much of people speaking their truth to power right now
March 20, 2019 at 9:04 pm
Well… To be fair, could the Brexit negotiations actually get any worse? Anything would help at this point.
