Now You Know The Origen Of the Phrase

Will people ever remember the very last and final thing you did before you died?    Here’s an account of two such men.

Empress Rochelle Wisoff-Fields reigns full on this blog.  She’s pretty cool.

Our photographic scribe is Al Forbes.  Thanks, Al.

Onward, ever onward …

Terentius Neo lifted his toga and issued forth a perfect casting of several feet of his lower intestines into the moving waters.  Moros sidled up beside him and, issuing golden streams into the currents, asked him the great question on everyone’s mind.

“You think Vesuvius will really erupt?”

Neo searched for a few smooth leaves. “Of course not!  What a stupid

thing to  —“

The professor swept away the final dust of the two newly discovered skeletons, perfect for the casting in the Garden of the Fugitives, both in somewhat compromising positions.  He shook his head.  “What a way to go …”

    lol what a way to go… now ,to remove the image from my mind.haha

  2. Dear Kent,

    There are some positions that one would hate to be caught dead in. You captured it.

    Dear Kent,

    Yikes. Had never thought of it that way, but now that you mention it…

    A well put together story. Good job.

      One of our on-air guys at the station said if the KC Chiefs go 10-0, he’ll buy everybody Chiefs underwear. He added if they really DO go 10-0, “I wouldn’t be surprised because EVERYBODY will need new underwear.” Hmmm. Vesuvius, Chiefs 10-0 ….

  4. Everyone has to go; one way or another.

    I can’t add to the humour of the comments, I’m afraid, but I’m slightly worried how your mind works from the story itself. Imagination is a curious thing!

      Frankly, Jen, I don’t know where in the WORLD my mind was. I DO know, though, I visited the ruins of Beit She’an and saw their primitive restroom facilities. Interesting. You’re right. Imagination IS a curious thing.

    Some glowing descriptions of some basic functions, but still you wouldn’t want to go like that… Very funny!

    One of your own people, Barbara Cartland, once said, “Constipation is the setting sun on the British Empire.” Who knew? Thanks, Sandra.

    I’ve always heard it’s wise to go to the bathroom before entering the next life. I’m just not sure I’d want to be immortalized that way. Great use of the prompt, Kent.

      Shades of Elvis there. I felt like I was in a “Russell Mood” on that one or having my own “Bloch Party” inside my head. Anyway, yes, I’m blaming a little more than a few of you for the inspiring of a humorous story. Not of the content, though, just the humor. Thanks, Russell.

    Poor guys-what a position to die in,ha!ha!Could not stop laughing at the word picture you painted -eloquent description of basic functions-I thought my mind was playing tricks 😀

  10. When you gotta go, you gotta go. I guess Vesuvius wasn’t the only thing expelling toxic waste that day. Should be an interesting and much talked about addition to the Garden of the Fugitives. Funny and ribald story. Way to go (no pun intended). Ron

  11. Nicely done, if fairly fundamentally functional.

    Still can’t believe what I read. Without a doubt, the most imaginative piece for this prompt.

  13. Indeed.. some were caught in those positions and places .. pissing or in a bordello.. this was a great take, once you know the final answer.

  14. Kent, marvelous, imaginative take on this one. Too bad for those guys, but then perhaps this is a true capture of their essence.
