King of the Jungle (MF)

This is a no-frills 
budget.A fake lion
costs less. Next
time we'll even throw
in a live actress.That
should put some color
to the movie

(140 characters)

After reading the comments apparently it conjures two streams of thought:

1. throw in a live actress - my contention here is to include the character of a
living pretty lady  a) to balance the 'dead' lion and   b) put some color - the play on
the black and white movie
2. It seems another interpretation is to 'to throw in the lady' to a live lion and
turn it gory (which I did not think of initially)

Grandma's Goulash aka Linda at Succinctly Yours week #124 provided the
picture above for us to write a micro fiction of not exceeding 140 characters  and
to include the word - frills


  1. ha. some of those old movies are pretty funny in the journey toward the realism we have today...made me think of them though...smiles

  2. Oh yes, blood red would add a lot. :0)

  3. Thankfully the lady did not become dinner. I was thinking about the budget too. After all how many people would sit that close to a lion with nothing but a camera between them??

  4. Don't you just love those fakey films that come from
    the low budgets? I do, this one too, Hank, nice write.

  5. Very clever SY story, Hank. I didn't interpret the lady as a victim of the lion, but rather as a glamorous addition, perhaps as a female lion trainer.

  6. Budget? It always comes with a price. Don't you think? hahahaha

  7. I loved both your microfiction and the possible interpretations. I must confess that my mind immediately conjured the 2nd interpretation. Doesn't say much for my mind, I guess! :D I liked your idea of adding color to a black and white.
