MFTS – Chad and Brad Make a Film (Almost)

Here is my contribution to Mondays Finish the Story, hosted by Barbara Beacham. We get a photo, an opening sentence and 150ish words. Yes, Chad and Brad are back!

The opening sentence is in bold, and to read the other contributions, click on the blue froggy.

“Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?”

With those words she raises the vicious stick threateningly. Terrified, the exhausted boys crawl back to their workspaces in the tiny, sealed room and begin to build the wind charms with trembling fingers…

“Wait, wind chime sweat shops?” Chad grabbed Brad’s smoke and sniffed it suspiciously.

“Yeah, dude!” said Brad, grabbing his weed back and puffing furiously. “They’re rife! We have to make this film to raise public awareness!”

“There’s no such thing,” said Chad. “How about ‘Save the Whales’?”

“Why would we want to save Wales?” asked Brad.

“Dude,” said Chad sadly, puffing away furiously.

“‘Dream Catcher Sweats Shops – the Untold Story’?” tried Brad. Chad shook his head. Brad took another drag. Chad went to the “special” cupboard to fetch the bong.

“That’s it!” cried Brad. “Exposé – The Horrors of the Bong Sweat…”

“NO!” said Chad. “Dude, seriously. Let’s just watch a film instead.”

“Bill and Ted?” asked Brad hopefully.

“Party on dudes!” they chorused happily.

    That is so weird. I don’t even KNOW what to say 🙂

    They should make a film where nothingness explodes!

    I love that you are making these two recurring MFTS characters…

      I bet they could, too!
      I reckon the dudes will be making an appearance every few weeks. I’ve tagged all four “chad and brad” so I’m planning on more.

    😀 That made me Ali! Thanks for another funny story for the MFtS challenge. Keep them coming! Be well… ^..^

    Love all the possible films! But when it comes down to it, watching Bill and Ted’s clearly far better. Excellent!

      It sounded like their kind of film!

    Okay, be honest, that was a real conversation! 🙂 Good one, Wind Chime Sweat Shops – too cool! Sad thing is there probably are – wind chimes, dream catchers, bird houses, and the list goes on!

      Maybe 🙂
      I did wonder if there actually are sweat shops for those things. I guess there is a good chance 😦

    I started laughing when I saw the title on the InLinkz page… too, too funny…. love Chad and Brad!!! Can’t wait for more!!!

      I think they’ll make an appearance every once in a while, they’re fun to write 🙂
      I’m glad you liked their latest adventure!

    Lol! When I saw this prompt, i first thought what twist would you give to it using our famous dudes. I loved it.. best line ‘Why would we want to save Wales?’


    • June 24, 2015 at 5:03 am

      I hope I haven’t offended any Welsh people… 🙂
      I’m glad you liked the dudes’ latest outing!

      You should, they’re great fun 🙂

    LOL! Looks like they need to cut down on the weed!

    Why would we want to save Wales?
    LOL! I want some of whatever those two are having 😛


    • June 25, 2015 at 1:41 pm

      I think it’s their own special recipe 🙂

    Great writing Ali ~ Endless possibilities here with your excellent imagination ~
