Rock Me Amadeus
by Miles H. Rost
“The map says we need to climb this rock to get to the treasure,” Colin said.
“Are you sure? This rock doesn’t seem safe,” Hannah replied.
“Come on, if the contest didn’t think this was safe, they wouldn’t have put it in the directions.”
“Well, I’m not sure it’s safe. Take a look, it seems tipsy.”
“I’ll prove it to you that it is safe. Give me a moment.”
Colin started to climb the rock, and it started to roll over. He jumped as it rolled it’s way into a farmhouse below.
“Well, rock me, Amadeus…”
Hannah rolled her eyes.
Puns are king!
Oops! Colin should have listened to Hannah…I hope it was an uninhabited farmhouse.
Nice story, Miles!
Thanks, Moon! Glad to be writing a bit more!
Not sure I want to be in a contest with that guy or live in that farmhouse for the matter..
Blame not the guy, but the contest makers for not checking their placings. XD
Oops! Fun story.
Oops is right!
What a song… what a story!
You can hear the rock crash into the farmhouse after the echoes.
I hope the treasure was worth it, someone’s gotta pay for the damage. Fun story.
The contest creators will.
I think this counts as another case of “manspaining”.
Well put together. I could see something like this happening.
I don’t think he’s “‘splainin'” anything. If anything, it’s the contest creator’s fault.
Hm, makes me not trust the rest of the directions the contest might have included — the treasure can’t be worth being trampled by a runaway boulder!
Pretty tragic if people were in the farmhouse.
But…were there anyone in the farmhouse? The world may never know.
I’m pretty sure we could tell if squished people were inside or not. 😉
What a relief–I thought he was going to be crushed!
Then it wouldn’t be “Rock Me Amadeus”. It’d be “Ode to a Pancake”.
Amusing take and a very rocking pun! Excellent

Hope he has good insurance – he’s going to need it!
Not him, the contest creators. They’re in trouble.
Hahahaha! I love it, Miles. That rock rolling into the farmhouse was such a Wile E. Coyote moment. Those are the best! Thanks for this.
So… the organisers of this game have some ‘splaining to do…
Another man that didn’t listen to the woman. When will they ever learn? :o)
This is what happens when you don’t listen to sane advice. Woe befell Collins. Excellent story.
Some people just gotta know for sure.
I love rock and roll
BESTED by a comment! Oh, my heart… Well done on creating a better song post! Well done!
Such praise so early in the morning. Now I will really have a good day.
Ha, this was a good laugh. I can picture it.
Exactly how I intend all my stories! 😀
🙂 Thank God he didn’t get hurt.
Only his pride.
Nice dialog. Clever with the song.
I was trying for something, and suddenly it popped on my youtube. So…okay, yeah, I can use that!
Haha – just like drivers who trust their GPS so much that they almost drive off cliffs. Nice one!
Someone at the contest got some ‘splainin’ to do.
For sure! 😁
