As per normal again, Friday Fictioneers! Here’s my contribution, after nearly 3 long months of rest and agonizing over grad school applications:
Bright lights shone across the sky.
The beam blasted from the tower into the room of one Marc Lavagneur, paparazzi extraordinaire and general pain in the butt.
“Gah! Can’t they just stop with the light already? I get the picture!” he yelled out the window.
He walked over to his phone and dialed up a number he never wanted to call.
“Hello? Creative Arts Agency? This is Marc Lavagneur. I give up. I’m done.”
The light stayed on.
“AND TELL LONI ANDERSON TO CLOSE HER MOUTH! IT’S BLINDING ME!”
The light suddenly went off.
Ha, there’s some (not so) subtle revenge for you. The tooth-whitening people could operate their own chain of lighthouses, it seems.
“Sponsored by Colgate!”
Good to see you back. Now there’s some white teeth in that mouth. Fun story.
This made me giggle, Loni Anderson, really!!
It was the first name that popped up when you think “Smile that could blind you”.
That… depends on how old you are! 😉
Ha.. never thought about that.. very funny.
The idea came up while I was researching toothpaste for my students’ class last night. XD
Why do the people in toothpaste adverts on television never have a mouthful of foam?
To quote the band Pilot: “Oh ho ho it’s MAGIC! You know…”
Loni Anderson!?! Now, there’s a blast from the past… Love that this photo made you pull that out.
I googled Loni whatsit and then read other comments before I understood. Ah. Great story (odd looking lady).
Ah haha! Backatcha paparazzi! *sigh* I miss Loni Anderson.
WKRP was, in fact, one of the best shows on TV. 😀
Absolutely. It was a hit in our home. I’m just now recalling the episode when the turkeys are thrown out of the helicopter, and Les Nessman was narrating the tragedy a la the Hindenburg disaster. “Oh the humanity!” One of the funniest satires ever.
A lovely and lunatic take on the prompt. Well done.
Most gracious! Thank you!
