The prosecutor stifled his laughter.
“Did you, or did you not state, Mrs. Bobbitt, that you would go free because the evidence would not, um, stand up in court?”
She was not amused.
“That wasn’t what I meant.”
Written for this week’s Trifecta Challenge – I’m really not sure why I chose Lorena Bobbitt and the misfortune of her husband’s manhood, but I did! I apologize to all of the guys crossing their legs right now.
On now to our quick and dirty Trifextra prompt. Plenty of times over the past two and a half years, we’ve given you the beginning of a story and asked for you to complete it. This time, we are giving you the end, and we are asking you to start it for us. We want 33 words in addition to and preceding the following:
That wasn’t what I meant.
So, to clarify, you write 33 words and then you tag on the five that we’ve given you. Our five come after your 33 for a grand total of 38.
Brilliant. Well executed. The prosecution rests.
Haha….thank you. I couldn’t help myself. 😀
And well done to you as well…..we should take this show on the road!! Bu-dum-bum!!
I love a good courtroom take-down. 😉
Thanks Kir…me too!
As my legs close in involuntary sympathy, all over again…
Sorry Guap….I couldn’t help myself. 😀
Haha…stand up in court… I about choked when I read this 🙂 It really cuts to the chase… (so sorry… I couldn’t help myself…)
Hahaha….I love that everyone has the same warped sense of humor I do!!
Ouch! Nicely done though.
Hahahahahaha! Good one!
😀 Thank you!
ahaha utterly brilliant! 😀
🙂 haha….thank you!
Haha! well, it wouldn’t, would it!?
Not without some serious medical intervention!! 😉
It’s too bad that story could only be 33 words. It feels sort of cut short.
Haha – well played!!
Haaaaaaa! Brilliant. I’ll have to show hubby so he can cringe and cross his legs again 😀
Haha – my apologies to your hubby!! 😉
Right from the clever title, all through to the end…..just excellent. Very funny and well written.
Thanks so much!
The reference is over my head but this is cute!
This may help! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_and_Lorena_Bobbitt
Sold. This is hilarious. Thanks for linking up!
Haha….thank you! I was giggling all afternoon….especially after I came up with the title!! 😀
This made me smile and cross my legs at the same time!
A great take on the prompt.
I feel I should apologize to all of the male Trifecta participants!!
I wonder if the case resulted in a hung jury.
Hahaha….one of my favorite comments so far!!! 😀
Hopefully they weren’t all pricks about it!!
Cringing and laughing at the same time is difficult.
😀 I like well rounded blog posts that produce many emotional responses!
I enjoy laughing… and I enjoy cringing. I don’t necessarily enjoy this particular cringe though…
Hahaha Love it. Loved the Bobbitts then, love her now! You rocked this.
🙂 Thank you.
Thank you for the out loud laugh 🙂
🙂 Thank you for laughing out loud!
Well done piece. Humorous prosecutor..
Thanks very much.
*hahaha* Totally irreverent and completely hysterical. You’re also dating yourself. 😉 (Um, and most of the rest of us.) Thanks for the belly laugh.
I didn’t feel old until Draug said she didn’t understand the reference. 😦 Haha.
Yeah, I had the same reaction. 🙂
