Cheersfest 2.0: Lee's Turn


Cheerfest 2.0 is here and hosted by a wonderful set of people. Today Arlee "Lee" Bird is the target oh I mean target of this online little celebration. Now let's get started.

My answer to the holy four questions.

1. Lee wanted to make friends through A-Z, not get roasted. Bummer.

2. More free time than the kind group who decided to hunt him for Cheerfest 2.0. Run Lee!

3. A post by Mr. Bird is meant to be read. You stalkers just stop hiding behind those bushes.

4. If audio only, Morgan Freeman. On film.... Alan Arkin. Hey it's a documentary not the Oscars. But with is cast...

Flash Fiction

A Juggler's Dream

A juggler in a brown coat answered a challenge. Find the bird in the dark room he was instructed. After an hour he came out empty handed.

"I win," he said.

"How?" the challenger demanded.

The juggler flipped him 'the bird'.

Tossing over the money, the challenger left cursing.

The Bonus Round


Caption: A modern photographic rendition of one of Picasso's cubism paintings. Still have no idea what it is even now.

Hope you had fun everyone. I did.

  1. Thank you for being gentle. I wouldn't mind having Morgan Freeman's voice. Cubist painting? You may be onto something--I can see it.

    1. Ha, ha, yes Mr. Freeman is the master when it comes to top shelf voices. I love having fun more than roasting so I decided to be in a 'gentle' middle. Glad you enjoy it and you see something in the cubist comment huh? Aw Lee there may be more mystery to you yet.

    1. Yeah the Alan Rickman part took me a bit to choose but Morgan Freeman was instantaneous. Which guy wouldn't want a voice like that for their documentary? Fun is the name of the game so I'm happy that you enjoyed this.

  8. I wonder if Alan Arkin has ever been over-dubbed by Morgan Freeman? Funny.

    1. Yup. Like The Invisible Man told Dracula in Hotel Translyvania, He's just too irresistible not to get troubled.
