Backfire – Gargleblaster Microstories #212

Johnson figured there’d be troubles hitching a dragon to his wagon. He just guessed they would come from its mouth.

Smoke billowed from the wagon’s charred remains.

The dragon looked sheepish.

Johnson glared at it. “I told you not to eat Habanero peppers!”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    If only dragons listened to reason. At least we get to say ‘I told you so’.

      Hehe. I had someone else spitting their drink out this week. I’m only 1 for 2 then. Gotta work on my timing. 😉 Glad to know you got a good laugh. Makes me happy to hear it. Thanks kindly! 🙂


  3. taming the dragons … not best of the ideas but then it never harmed to try. Only the poor wagon

      Hehe. Then there’s the way dragons tend to eat a couple goats before heading off to market with the wagon. Not a good thing for the children to see. 😉

    I wonder if they ever have this problem in Game of Thrones? “A Fart of Dragons,” maybe…

      I’ll bet they do. I understand Smaug obliterated 6 villages in Middle-Earth without even trying. Eventually the locals realized they should stop growing hot peppers… 😉

    I love your choice of the word sheepish to describe the dragon.
