Once Upon A Mime

RE-FRACTURED FAIRYTALES by keithcancook

Once Upon A Mime (OR, PRESSING THE MUTE BUTTON)


Once upon a time, there was a town full of mimes. A lovely town, (though quiet). It was attractive, and I felt drawn there as if being pulled along by an invisible rope.

I spent the morning mingling with the mimes, of a mind to fit in, but alas! I was walking in a mime field. Try as I might, I could not converse. I pleaded that they have vocal chords. “Use them!” I urged.

It was all to no avail. Mimes simply cannot think outside the box. Frustrated, I kidnapped one to study. I never hurt him, mind you. Everyone knows that a mime is a terrible thing to waste, but I wanted answers. He tried twisting away from me, and wrenched his hips, but I was not amused. More like disgusted, since everyone knows that a waist is a terrible thing to mime. He did help me understand how their women acted when he cried with frustration, “They’re all thespians!”

In the end, I learned that mimes are rather simple, as well as cheap. (Give me two silent nickels and you’ll have a mime). Yet, I never fully understood them until I found myself with Dick Van Dyke and Marcel Marceau on either side of me. That’s when I finally learned to read between the mimes, and see the truth.

The End





Authors note: Many thanks to today's muse BiggLala, whose post GGG Is Not So Grrrrreat sorta-kinda inspired this composition.

(actually I hijacked her post and went off-topic because I didn't understand the nature of GGG, and hid it with humor.)

oh well,

What?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Great as usual, Keith!

I'm curious, though (you know me). What jobs did the townsfolk have? Like, were any of them sheep herders? If so, how did they figure out how to silence the lambs?
(big groan)

I dunno about sheep, but they loved the movie. Most of em were reading All Quiet on the Western Front while I was there...
