Raven's Challenge 97

It is Saturday and time to play with words supplied by Raven's Wordzzle
Words for this week's 10-word challenge are: teflon, idealistic, marshmallow, opportunistic, kittens, beef, sawing logs, slapped, tickled, scissors
For the mini: ripen, shelve, laminate, goofy, Siamese



A Mega Challenge
A World Inside

In the goofy world of self sawing logs
Siamese kittens live with frogs
Marshmallow men hold scissors sharp
And idealistic cows play the harp
The rich laminate their best beef
Safe from the opportunistic thief
Teflon is slapped and tickled
Left to ripen and be pickled
Come visit this goofy place
Found in your own inner space
Shelve your images of the here
And you can see the talking deer.
Flying turtles and crows of red
All coming from your head.

The Maxi Challenge History of the Log Cabin

Today we bring you a little more dragon history. Did you know that we had log cabins before there even were people. They were huge buildings made from trees that no longer exist upon the earth. We had no power saws or even hand saws so sawing logs was done with finely tuned breath fire. After a big bowl of beef, kitten, and marshmallow soup one dragon would fly up and cut off all the branches on the tree. In the process the poor dragon was slapped and tickled by the branches not yet cut. It was almost as if the tree was aware of what we were doing and was fighting back. One poor dragon lost a leg when two branches suddenly pinched shut and acted like a scissors. That even was remembered and one of our more opportunistic dragons used it to invent your regular scissors.
When the logs were all cut and the cabin built the floor of many of them were covered with a Teflon like substance made by melting some kind of rock. The more idealistic among us, however, insisted that only a dirt floor was proper for a dragon. Eventually this caused the great split and the Floor Wars but that’s another story.

  3. Very educational. I always wondered about who invented scissors. I should have known it must be a dragon. I hope we get to hear the story of the Floor Wars another time...
