FF – Magic Stoner Donkeyland

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. The photo was contributed by J. Hardy Carroll.

It’s all a bit mad and has a beginning, a middle and an end (purely because I put “The End” at the end). It sort of starts with the photo, takes a bit of a left turn in the middle and then shoots off at a tangent at the end ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Warning – may contain drug references!

โ€œLook! Puff the Magic Donkey.โ€

โ€œSurely itโ€™s โ€˜Puff the Magic Dragonโ€™?โ€

โ€œI canโ€™t draw dragons. But heโ€™s still magic. Look!โ€

The donkey leapt from the page and appeared on the pavement! His eyes were wide and unfocussed and he appeared a trifle unsteady on his hooves.

โ€œHi, Puff.โ€

Puff coughed a cloud of sweet-smelling smoke. โ€œDude,โ€ he hee-hawed, wandering dazedly out into traffic.

Meanwhile, in Magic Donkeyland HQ, Stoner-General Donkey awaited news from his invasion scout, Stoner-Corporal Puff โ€“ a report fated never to arrive, after stoned-out-of-his-brain Puffโ€™s close encounter with the Number 19 bus from Islington.

Invasion aborted!

The End.

    Dude! That’s one far-out story! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Never mix drugs and secret missions – every donkey knows this!

    Drat that number 19 bus! An invasion of stoner donkeys would be more amusing than anything currently going on in the world!

    Ha ha – that was fun to read… mad, but fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

      It took on a life of its own ๐Ÿ™‚

    thank goodness, the planned invasion wasn’t ready for prime time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    With a little luck he’s spewing out gold from front and back…after all he is stoney woney…MOL ๐Ÿ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Day๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž

      You never know. He probably thinks he is ๐Ÿ™‚

    I felt like I was on something after reading that! Crazy!

    Dear Ali,

    Duuuude. Never hire a stoner for an important mission. Pass the potato crisps, please.




    • May 23, 2019 at 3:36 pm

      Dear Rochelle,
      That would have been a good idea, but I fear none of the donkeys in Magical Stoner Donkeyland are “all there” ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. May 23, 2019 at 12:54 pm

    Hilarious, Ali. Yep, that was the End alright, of Puff, the invasion, and the story, dude. ๐Ÿ˜€ — Suzanne


    • May 23, 2019 at 3:36 pm

      I sure know how to finish a story off! I’m glad you liked it.


  11. May 23, 2019 at 1:08 pm

    Hey, far out man! (Giggles inanely) Some story, dude!
    I enjoyed that story, Ali. An agreeable piece of whimsy.


    • May 23, 2019 at 3:37 pm

      As I ran out of words, the ending became ever more far-fetched ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I actually did some research – the Number 19 does indeed stop at Islington…


  12. May 23, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Made me laugh ๐Ÿ™‚ Dude. Far out.

    This week’s story was sponsored by MARIHUANA! It’s the Good Stuffยฎ, dude!

      So some at the Nest would have me believe… and if you’d waited a couple of hours before commenting it would have been 4:20pm (BST) too!


  14. May 23, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    Brilliant, I’d hope we’ve all been there! Funny stuff


  15. May 24, 2019 at 8:13 am

    Tripping man… good stuff!


  16. May 24, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    You are definitely trippy this week, Ali! Duuuuude….

    Love it. That number 19 bus! Always bumping into people.


    • May 25, 2019 at 4:31 pm

      It’s notorious around those parts. First time it hit a donkey, though.


  20. May 25, 2019 at 11:25 am

    A fast paced story that leaves you out of Puff. Fun read.

    Stoned Donkeys…hahaha! Believe me when I say I’ve seen it… it was hilarious! Shhh, bear, you don’t know who’s listening… snorting cackles.

      Those stoned donkeys do get around. Many people have seen, but none tell!

    Oh poor Puff, if we’re to be invaded Donkeys will do for me, especially in Islington, I can see them now trotting cutely down Upper Street


    • May 25, 2019 at 4:39 pm

      Don’t be fooled by the cuteness! Their flailing stoned hooves can wreak havoc…

    Dude! Surely there was a Lucky in the sky with diamonds too. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  25. May 26, 2019 at 7:40 am

    Lucy in the sky…. ;-(


    • May 26, 2019 at 9:59 am

      Ha, maybe the two talking have got a little two close to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and they’re hallucinating the stoned donkey ๐Ÿ™‚


  26. May 26, 2019 at 7:45 am

    I think the world is safe from this particular invasion force for now. They seem to be too distracted. I enjoyed this very much. Wacky.


    • May 26, 2019 at 10:00 am

      Those donkeys don’t seem to be able to concentrate on anything for any amount of time ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think you really need dragons for invasions…


    • May 27, 2019 at 7:20 am

      Yeah, donkeys just don’t cut it, really.


  28. May 26, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    I will sleep so much better to night knowing that the invasion has been cancelled. Thanks.

    Sometimes I write my stories when I am drinking wine.


  30. May 28, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    It seems the invasion’s been prevented by a good old No.19 Islington bus – intentionally or otherwise. Love the idea of a stoned donkey and the choice of name is perfect! Lol!


    • May 28, 2019 at 6:20 pm

      I’m sure the driver didn’t deliberately run over the poor little donkey… ๐Ÿ™‚
