Fibbing Friday — From Shoe Horns To Winklepickers

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in your responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.

1. What is a shoe horn?

It’s the official shoe recommended for those who attempt to scale the Matterhorn.

2. Where will you find a grommet?

Right next to the grambit section in aisle 8 of the hardware store.

3. We may say “the tables have turned,” but what is a turntable?

It’s a stage at a theater in the round dinner venue that rotates so that everyone can get a good view of the actors performing on the stage. It lost its popularity, though, in the 60s when many actors started suffering from vertigo and ended up vomiting all over the dinner guests nearest to the turntable.

4. How do you make a tea cosy?

You wrap it in a nice warm blanket and cuddle with it until it falls asleep.

5. What is a quaver?

It is a small earthquake.

6. Where will you find a plimsoll line?

In the plimsoll aisle at the hardware store, next to the grommets and the grambits.

7. What colorΒ was The King’s New Clothes?

He used to wear a dark blue suit with an extra long red tie until people finally realized that he was nothing more than an empty suit and that he wasn’t, despite his attempts to be, actually the king, at which time he got booted out of the castle.

8. Why was Ethelred called The Unready?

Because Ethelred was always unready, of course. Duh!

9. 007 has a license to kill, but what would an 005 have a license for?

005 has a license to drive the getaway car for 007.

10. What is a winklepicker?

It’s someone who is a 004 and has a license to pick winkles.

    Trump’s exaggerated red tie has become famous and I hope that he gets booted out soon.

    I wondered what those were next to the grimmits in the grommet aisle of the hardware store. Again, you’ve enlightened me! *snicker*
