My fantasy has arrived. It falls under the file of What We REALLY Wish We Could See On TV News.
Queen Rochelle furnished the picture … which I might say is AWESOME! I wish I had a better, more inspirational a story for it! Maybe next time.
Morning reporter Kathy Owens arrived at the burning house first, set up for her live shot and waited. Two minutes later, she was on the air.
“Dan, Cecily, the house here on Chestnut, we’re being told, was caused by a fire in the basement. 1000 pounds of marijuana hidden down there, according to police, caused it.”
Anchorman Dan replied. “Any injuries, Kathy?”
“So far, none, Dan, although this neighborhood was thick with smoke so they all evacuated fast.”
Anchorwoman Cecily chimed in. “You know where they went?”
Kathy smelled the smoke and started giggling, then more. “They’re … at … TACO BELL!”
And the FF Jester strikes again. Oh, SNAP!
Surely they could have chosen a higher quality establishment to satisfy their munchies. 😉
Hahahahaha! A friend of mine once said this about horniness not having any discrimination when the lights are out. Same for the munchies.
Yay for munchie time!
Thanks, Kent, this made me chortle.
Thank-you, my friend for reading and the chortle. 😉
Dear Cuzzin Notnek,
Oh the munchies. Even I would go for Taco Blecch under those circumstances. Very funny.
Thanks. I suppose it was probably the effect of the best Colombian weed grown in Nebraska.
*Chortle, snort…. funny stuff.
The chortle I’ll take, but what are you snorting …?
Barrump-BUMP! “But I gotta tell ya, folks …”
Haha! Where else would they be under the circumstances? Great stuff, Kent. Made me smile
I told the “Kathy” of this story my idea for HER to actually do this and she said, “Oh, you!” She’s a great gal. 😀
Spreading a little cheer, eh? 🙂
Very amusing. Does Taco Bell taste better when under the influence? 🙂
I kind of like it myself, although, I will always prefer “real” Mexican food which is quite delicious. In all seriousness, I never have done ANY drugs of any kind. You’d have to ask one of the commenters. I won’t say the name (even though the “statute of limitations” is up) but maybe he or she will tell you. 😉
LOL, you really know how to deliver a funny story. 🙂
Well, thanks, Loré. My goal is to actually improve my skills in this manner, so I hope it’s working!
It is. 😉
What a hoot. Now we can only hope the pharmacy is close enough. Eating that kind of food while their judgment is impaired would be lethal on most stomachs.
Also devastating to people’s car interiors, too. Thanks, Magaly.
S🙂o they over cooked the king of the smiles.
Yup. They sure enough did. 😀
I hope if I’m ever in that predicament I’m closer to a gourmet food store than a Taco Bell or any other fast food place.
Just don’t eat anymore brownies. 😉
Ha.. reminds me of that video where a reporter gets high when he reports from police burning drugs
You know, that has happened a lot more than people realize! Just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This is the one I remembered:
Oh, that is TOO HILARIOUS! Poor guy. I’ll bet he made a Taco Bell run afterwords … probably all the way to the States in that condition!
THIS is hysterical!!!
I’m reminded of the scene in “Up in Smoke” where the marijuana van caught on fire.
Five out of five roach-clips hanging from the rear view mirror.
HAHA! One of my all-time favorite scenes in ANY motion picture is where Cheech inhales all that detergent thinking it’s cocaine and barfing bubbles out of the van. Just too hilarious. Also when he takes a whiz out the bathroom window because the toilet’s full of laundry! The poor guy in the apartment below wonders why it’s raining only on him. 😀
Ah, the munchies 🙂
Yes, the munchies. 🙂
Wish we had Taco Bell in the UK!
What all do you folks have out there that is of American invention? All we have from the UK are clothing stores. I think.
Under those circumstances, I certainly would head for Taco Bell or McDonald’s or Dunkin Doughnuts or…. Whatever was close. Fun stuff.
I think the Dunkin Doughnuts would have been another contender, especially since it took place early in the morning (as I imagined it).
Well done, I fell the TV Anchor’s urgency. Nice punch line, made me smile.
Thank-you very much. 🙂
I love it when a live shot ends in uncontrollable giggling… Fun one.
Reminds me of Rome burning, Nero fiddling & all that!
You are always good for a laugh, Jester!
Thanks, Sabina! It’s a better laugh than drugs, don’t you think? 😉
Of course. Always!👍
LOL!!! 🙂 But going to Taco Bell will only add fuel to the fire, don’t you think? 🙂
I wouldn’t know. Now, if there were brownies made from that stuff and they got hungry … 😀
Fun story. I would have expected people crowding around the burning house to inhale while it lasted. 😀
Hahahahaha! I like that idea. Can i use it for the next incarnation of the story?
Of course. 😀
I would have said they were ‘down wind’.. giggles. Just follow the smoke, you’ll find them. ROFLMAO!
Where there’s smoke … MUNCHIES!!!
Haha…funny story, this week, you made me smile big!
Thanks, Dawn! I don’t know to what extent my humor reaches, but it’s nice to know. 🙂
This made me laugh and Taco Bell? Well any port in a storm.
Haha! I use that line a lot — “any port in a storm.”
My other one is — “they’ll think I REALLY sold out.”
Yes, admittedly Taco Bell isn’t exactly the last word in Mexican food, but it does well in a pinch.
You have woven a funnily lovely story.
Coming from you, Neel, that is truly a compliment. Thank-you! 🙂
Guess that was the nearest eatery?
Yup. At least, that’s what the story says.
As for your story, Liz, I read yours and am commenting here because blogspot isn’t printing my comments.
You have written a terrific dementia piece! It’s really sad to see someone’s personality change from one thing to the other in a drastic way. Well-done!
Now I’m craving tacos!! Damn you.
From manufacturer direct to consumer. 😉
A very funny take on the prompt. Never been to Taco Bell, but judging by the comments, I don’t think I have missed much!
That’s up to you, really. Depends.
This is so funny!!! Ha Ha!! Weed has done the deed!
I would love to hear your feedback on my take on the prompt. I’m new to the FF party. You can find it here:
Thanks for reading, Yuhu.
no surprise there. taco bell won. 1000 pounds of marijuana burning would be enough for the whole neighborhood to get high including the giggling news reporter.
It would indeed. 😀
