BANAL INTERVIEWS WITH CELEBRITY GHOSTS – HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

October 15, 2017

Loon: Today’s ghost for the 3 Question Interview, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, wrote poems. Mr. Longfellow, did you write rhyme poems or those other weird ones?

Longfellow’s ghost: In the beating heart of my earthly time I wrote verses with rhythm and rhyme.

Loon: Good. Those other kinds are stupid.If you could be a favorite food, what food would you be?

Longfellow’s ghost: If a forest truffle I could be, that, my child, would bring me glee.

Loon: And finally, did you live in a castle?

Longfellow’s ghost: No.

(Longfellow and Loon exchange bows and skip off in opposite directions.)

THE TRIDENT

October 11, 2017

‘Where’s my slender trident? I distinctly remember leaving it leaning against the shed. Is it leaning against the shed? No, it is not leaning against the shed. So where is it? I’m looking at you, Bernard,’ said the witch.

‘Look at me all you want. I know nothing about the silly trident,’ replied the raven, shuddering its neck feathers.

‘Now I’m looking at you, Charlotte,’ said the witch, turning her most withering gaze toward the black cat.

‘There’s nothing in the world I care less about than your trident. You probably jammed it into the ground in the green wood so you could wander around babbling nonsense unencumbered,’ replied Charlotte, unsheathing her claws to have a nice rake across the gravel.

The witch whirled around in fury and strode off into the green wood. She kicked a tree, threw dirt clods into the stream, bit her own arm, threw herself to the ground and sobbed. When none of these things produced the slender trident, she sat up glowering, her face a silent storm. It was then that she noticed the slender trident stuck in the ground next to a stand of lush green yellow bushes.

‘Oh, yeah, heh, heh,’ she mumbled in embarrassment.

October 8, 2017
Tags:

Loon: We have a treat in store for us today on the 3 Question Interview. The lords of the 4th dimension have brought someone they call a sidekick, Andy Devine, as today’s ghost guest. Mr. Devine, as a sidekick, do you kick people in the side or do you yourself get kicked in the side?

Andy Devine’s ghost: Gee willikers, son, I don’t rightly know. Hee hee hee.

Loon: I notice fringe on your sleeves. Does it ever annoy you?

Andy Devine’s ghost: By golly, it has dragged through my soup a time or two. Hee hee hee.

Loon: Were you married?

Andy Devine’s ghost: Aww, shucks. Hee hee hee.

(Andy’s ghost turns inside out and rides off on a camel. Loon faints.)
