The State Secret

Photo by: David Stewart

Senator Hayworth was unknown for impulsiveness. During a state visit in Bulgaria, he pointed to a flower-like fountain. “What’s that?”

“A gift from the aliens,” said Frank, Chief Advisor.

Natalie, the Deputy Advisor, said, “It’s an alien/worm hybrid. Only once a year it shoots out a green fluid. If some gets on you, it’s supposed to be lucky.”

“Sir, no!” shouted Frank, but too late.

Heedless, Senator Hayworth walked into the green stream. “It’s an election year. I need some luck!”

“Will you tell him?” said Natalie.

“No,” said Frank. “You tell him he just got a facial from alien worm sperm.”

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.

    My version of the photo was cut off midway through the flower! So I had ‘less of a picture’ of what was going on. I’m smiling at the difference the full picture makes 🙂 Nice one.
