Microfiction Monday: Mothman vs. The Joking Wizards

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the world's best meme, coming to you from Susan at Stony River. One of the highlights of a dangerous writer's week. Enjoy.
Mothman hated being the butt of the wizards' jokes. He grabbed Blue, ready to kill. But(t) Yellow's "Uranus" spell nobbled him first.

This sort of gutter humor will be understood only if you've seen Susan's other picture of the escapade. (I shall have to put it behind me before I bum you all out.) Here's the pic:

Thanks in advance for your comments. I'm looking forward to visiting as many as possible in return during the next couple of days.

  6. Thanks, Michael. And excellent pun!

    I had read Susan's 'visit' post and looked at the pictures. Guess I didn't zero in on the behind, just the large wings.

  20. Oh, to be in primary school again!! LOL Yesterday a boy came to the library and checked out a pile of books on the solar system, and when I came to a book titled simply "Uranus" I laughed so hard I was hurting myself. His mother kept shaking her head.

    Well I'm not there for the paycheck!
