FOWC with Fandango — Deadpan


It’s September 16, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “deadpan.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    what was important in life
    she replied in very poor english
    a penis
    the queen deadpan face interjected
    oh happiness …yes that is important

    He was so excited to see her. He recounted the good times they had shared and how he missed them.

    Are you sure? She responded in a deadpan voice.

    Responses to two of the responders, because I just had to find out if RALL’s story was true or an intentional play on words:

    But the Queen turned it around and stepped in to correct the situation.

    Mr Helliker continues: “An awkward silence ensued for some time, until the Queen herself came to the rescue, and she said with a broad grin: ‘Ah, happiness.’”

    There’s something off between this enthusiastic touting and what has really happened in the largest city in Mississippi.

    Siemens draws on 175 years of success to prioritize innovations that improve people’s daily lives


    “One of our mantras is that instead of falling in love with our own technology, we need to fall in love with our customers’ problems,” Humpton says. “And out of that comes the innovation that brings true change.”
