    Bring on Brexit, I say, when we can finally enjoy a distinctly British form of passive-aggressive attitude to Johnny Foreigner! 🙂
    What a marvellous take on the Racist and Hamburg elements. Jolly good show, Mr E!

    Wow! Welcome back to Microcosms, Caitlin. ( The rumours that you had been abducted by aliens were obviously unfounded… 😉 )

    Love the ‘Shrek’ vibe going on in this piece.

    No problem, Susi. Great take on your chosen elements.
    [ But I personally find the final paragraph a little confusing…

    No Big Bad Wolf, Justin, otherwise it could have been “Furry Tail”. 😉
    Done.

    And we’re back with another classic Englesonian title! Do you dream them up during the week and hope you can match them with the story? Lines like ‘her eyes start blazing like a dragon’s fart.’ and ‘…as polite a […]

    Marvellous take on the chosen elements, Steve. I’d bet my last Belzonian dollar that ‘The mould went mouldy after they moulded him.’ will be the favourite line!

    I love this beautiful tale, Carin. It certainly fits the requirements of the genre. Good job.

    Microcosms artiste, Arthur Unk
    Turned to verse, but synapses went CLUNK!
    Night-time working’s no breeze:
    He’s in need of some ZZZZees,
    So he took himself off to his bunk.

    ‘Less is More’, eh? Amendment made.

    Greetings, my flash fictioneering friends, and welcome to Microcosms 119.

    This week’s contest is based on anniversaries occurring today (20-APR).

    270 years: birth of Georg Michael Telemann, German […]

    Now you’re confusing me, H; easily done after I’ve spent more than 8 solid hours wrestling with the laptop from hell!

    >> As far as I the writer is concerned ‘SHE’ WAS CORRECT!! As it was ‘SHE’ who was being w […]

    Sorry, H – mea culpa. It originally read ‘At this point, SHE turned and said…’. Since this was ambiguous, I amended it to the name of who I thought was speaking. I was nearly right!

    Hello once again, flashionistas, and welcome to Microcosms 118.

    In MC 110, I mentioned my resolution to address my addiction to tsundoku — the Japanese term for the habit of buying books, then piling them up u […]

    Well said, Harrietbelle. Judging by the number of ‘likes’ Carin received, you are not alone in this opinion.
    (As Bill, I hold my hand up to being a grumpy old git.)

  • Thanks to all who submitted to Microcosms 117. We had a very pleasing turnout of 22 entries this time. Welcome to first-time entrants Beckham Lawre, Pauline Emmylou Florsch, Rae Morgan and Stephanie Corne […]

    It’s better than two thumbs up your rectum…

    I gave you TWO options on the ‘sunrise’ conundrum; which one would you like to go with? Or can you come up with a third way?
    And are you happy to leave the line about advice being verboten?

  • Geoff Holme commented on the post, Microcosms 117, on the site Microcosms 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Lovely H2G2 homage, Ted, even down to the title — though I would have thought that ‘hot cross buns’ would have been more – but not completely – topical than ‘mince pies’. 😉
    I was dubious about swans paddling […]
