Here is my offering for Alastair’s Photo Fiction this week, inspired by the photo below. Why not take part? And why not visit his photography and writing blog to take a look at his other photos…?
– Happy Days –
“Sir, we’re stuck.”
“For God’s sake, I know that! Just get them to sort it out!”
“Is your radio broken? Look, I’ll use my phone. Don’t you have yours on you? What kind of security are you?”
“My radio isn’t broken, sir. They won’t help us.”
“What do you mean? I’ve got a COBRA committee meeting in 25 minutes!”
“I think they know that, sir. That’s why they have us hostage up here -”
“Hostage! What for? Who are they?”
“I understand that they want the London Eye to be nationalised.”
“You’re joking! Really and truly – this is a joke, isn’t it?”
“No, sir. This is just the first of many demands, apparently. They want fun to be owned by the people.”
“The Home Secretary is stranded half way up the funicular railway in Aberystwyth, the Deputy Prime Minister is stuck on a boat in the middle of Loch Ness.”
“And who is holding us to ransom, may I ask?”
“The Ministry of Fun, sir.”
“And the joke’s on us, I take it?”
“It rather seems that it is, sir.”

Thank you! 🙂
LOL. This does hold some truth in a humorous way. Well done! 🙂
Thank you! These days, everything seems to be branded and sponsored – it would be lovely if this didn’t appear to be necessary!
Ha ha! Maybe the politicians should have a Ministry of Silly Talks!
Oh yes, I love that idea! 🙂
Very clever and very funny.
