May-June 2013 AWwYP contest submissions

I didn’t mean to be unkind…our last entry into our contest

(but clouds got in my way)     Horace pictured here sticks with his own kind, and squawks like an encryption. Literati! Not quite at the eleventh hour, but trailing the other entries, Eli Fang’s submission as the last of our finalists in our Wingnuts contest was nesting in my inbox this morning after a […]

Granny is no flake…Wingnuts continues, and GRANNY GETS THORNED!

You had it comin’ Granny Clark Literati All of us who know and love Granny are relieved that she is the matriarch of someone else‘ family. She is not the CEO of Subtle and Somber. We might want to rethink that. Granny sent me a very private email, which I have no choice but to […]

It’s neither hare nor there…a Fox News Flash

(I have, upon occasion, been strung out on some fox, but seeing a fox strung out over a rabbit ? (I was born in the Year of the Rabbit–what does that tell you–but let’s not split hares here) Liberati!  oops–LITERATI  (Freudian slip.  I must be thinking of liberty–the libeerties I take with the language  and […]

Love lift us up where we belong, where the eagles fly..

Literati… Sal Butacci has lost it…but his loss is our gain! As a finalist in our Wingnuts contest, we asked Sal and all the finalists to tell us a love story, and somewhere embedded (how can you have a love story without eventually being embedded?) he was required to use the phrase “…if only I […]

Knock Knock…Who’s there?…

  Omelet. Omelet who? Omelet Jack Horne break a few legs–oops!–eggs as the finalists scramble to get their entries in on time to conclude our Wingnuts contest. Literati! That poacher Jack Horne came all the way from the other side of the pond to see that his entry got fried. Care for yours sunny-side up? […]

How Swede it is! First of our finalists submits!

  EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska — The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, shines above Bear Lake here Jan. 18. The lights are the result of solar particles colliding with gases in Earth’s atmosphere. Early Eskimos and Indians believed different legends about the Northern Lights, such as they were the souls of animals dancing in […]

Mac Eagan is NOT un app roachable

Literati!  Conspicuous by his absinthe has been Mac Eagan.  We expectorated that he was with holding his entry into our Wingnuts contest until the competition had exhausted itself, and he could introduce something clean and refreshing (see video below). Take heart–you still have the opportunity to up him one, as the contest remains open until […]

The Prufrock is in the (Yorkshire) Pudding

Literati!  Contestant to our Wingman contest Parisianne Modert introduces us to a litany of lamenting literary libidos. (I like alliteration a lot).  Virginia Woolf, TS Eliot. Vita Sackville-West, and the influential poem J. Alfred Prufrock, published in 1917 by TS Eliot. I suggest you wick your pedia for all these fascinating characters, but first enjoy […]

I’ll be normal…(right)

Literati! Tiffany Unique–oops!–Tiffany MONIQUE provides a soulution for what ales us–a second entry into our Wingnuts contest! Let’s here it for lippo suction! Abbey Normal and the Fool    by Tiffany Beard I suck at quoting Abbey Normal. I always start giggling. Chris knows this. I’ll just have to wing it. “Heinous fu–” “Chris!” I […]

Doctoring the image…our Wingnut contest continues

Flaws? Moi? Ahhh, Literati. Johnny Tobias has dropped in again. You may recall he won a contest a while back I’m All Shook Up.  Maybe he wants the trophy of Horace to keep the Elvis trophy he won?  Here, and in the movie trailer that follows, you can see how his theory works about getting the […]

“I could have been an offender”

Ahhh! Literati. The strain of closing down the Towers weighs heavily on my face in this unretouched photo…Oh! Wait!  That’s not me! It seems Charles Bukowski has had a bit of a revival since his death.  Here is a second entry where he is a favorite author.  We do love our role models! This entry […]

Diane Cresswell re-enters our contest Wingnuts with a definite hook

Literati! Seen here is the staff at A Word with You Press saluting The Editor-inChief (Moi, not shown) Diane Cresswell stopped by the towers today to pay her respects. I asked her to bring marshmallows and help me find my fiddle.  And she was good enough to take Mike Stang’s trophy that was gathering dust […]
