Three Word Prompt: Take Your Fill, with Bern and Barm Ellis


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

Well, me and Barmy were there at the dump, watching the truck unload and trying to see if there were any keepers among the maggots. There's usually something we can salvage among the dross.

There were several items of interest to be found. We eyeballed the ones we liked and waited for the dump truck to give us some freedom of movement, and then waded in.

It must have been moving day at the old Surrealhauser place.

Look at this, willya? This charming hardcover coffee-table book, in creme de mint condition, title, Armpit Salad. Lovely addition to any home. And what's this, Barm? Bring it over, that's sure a nifty little thing. Now I ask you, folks, how often do you see anyone celebrating the lost genius of--lemme see here...Rick Spens? I don't know what this is, but it sure is--somethin'! A kind of rind, I think. Comin' out of the torso of George Reeves as the original Superman, I think he's either chocolate filled today, or possibly this is...yes, smells like hazelnut. Perfect for birthdays. SuperRind.

The last paragraph is hard to read all mushed together, but I know how characters work on this website. You probably needed them for words instead of punctuation. All that aside, this trash heap is well depicted and gross. Don't read this while eating!

I think this was basically just free writing, it doesn't make a lot of sense, particularly starting with the word "rind." :D Thank you!
