I finally found some time for Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The picture for this week’s challenge has been provided by J Hardy Carroll.
When I was a kid I went to a Circus Carnival with my parents. I saw a pair of Siamese Howler Monkeys in a cage behind the Big Top. Each head controlled one arm. The left side was Frank and the right side was Sinatra.
Frank stole Sinatra’s banana so Sinatra howled in Frank’s ear. Frank gave the banana back to Sinatra but as soon as Sinatra had the banana, Frank howled in his ear. Then Sinatra slapped Frank and Frank slapped Sinatra and the banana fell out of the cage.
The inspiration for my post is from Genius Funny Man Tim Conway and his Siamese Elephant skit on the Carol Burnett Show. If you haven’t seen it, I’ve put the link below. It’s not great quality which is a shame – the better links were blocked in my country which is another shame. For the Siamese Elephant go to 2:00 in the video.
