Okay. I've been reading the thread about what sort of condoms Mudcateers prefer, and I have come to the conclusion that we can talk about any topic in the world and manage to think laterally, find related & unrelated topics, write or recite songs, stories, poems or jokes about it, and generally have a really interesting time, even if it doesn't stay right on topic.

So, I'm issuing a story/song/poem/joke writing challenge. I tried to think of 3 unrelated items and I eventually decided on:

a flea, an orange, and a bicycle seat.

I want to see the creative and lateral thinking manifestations that you all bring forth, even if it is only *discussions* on the topics - but the challenge is to make a cohesive piece of writing which inludes the 3 items. You can bring in other items as long as it isn't just a long list without some sort of idea behind it.

Meanwhile I'll work on my own creation and get back to you.

I hope you'll accept my challenge. And, I am open to suggestions for modifications to the idea.

Helen P.S. Keep on laughing and thinking - that's why I stay around the Mudcat site.
