FF – Hollywood Rocks!

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. The photo was contributed by Rochelle herself back in November 2014, and according to the photo’s filename is somewhere in Hollywood.

So in this story we find out how Nathan is getting along, after his story in 2014, Land of Broken Dreams.


Six years. Six long years of waiting tables and finally, his big break. Hollywood rocks!

Okay, it was just a small TV advert. Okay… an advert for haemorrhoid cream. But he had a line!

‘With our patented cream, never again feel like you’re passing a pine cone! Crap-U-LikeTM – your one stop shop to pain-free plopping!’

So it wasn’t quite what he’d had in mind when he’d left Tinyville so long ago. But it was a foot on the ladder. Who knows, in a few months he could be King of the Bum Cream! Lord of the Laxatives!

Hollywood rocks!

    Dear Ali,

    OMG! This fires on all cylinders. Or should I say it flushed on all cylinders. Good job!

      Dear Rochelle,
      At least since 2014 he has made some progress! I’m glad you liked it 🙂

    A pungent tale!


  5. August 12, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Got to start somewhere, and royalties pay well!

      He was savvy enough to take the job, get himself known, and who knows where it might lead!

    😁 made me smile.

    Lord of the Laxatives! LOL! Well, with baby boomers needing some of those … he may well end up with a star … 😉


  12. August 13, 2020 at 4:36 am

    i salute him for not giving up. way to go. 🙂


  13. August 13, 2020 at 8:13 am

    Start small… Fun story…

    The first rung on a very long ladder. I think we’ve both written about the same person!

    Here’s mine!

      I think you’re right. Your chap may be my chap a couple of years on!

    I guess he hasn’t worked his way up the ladder enough to have his own stunt double for the demonstrations…


    • August 14, 2020 at 7:12 am

      He does all his own “stunts”!


  16. August 13, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Yes, I just read Keith’s story. Great minds, right? Bathroom humor is hilarious. I laughed.


    • August 14, 2020 at 7:14 am

      Hopefully he’ll get some free samples. I’m glad you liked it!

    Would it be worse or better to be dressed like a bunch of grapes and advertise men’s underwear, I wonder? Great job, lots of fun 🙂

    There’s nothing better than a nice plop. 🙂


    • August 14, 2020 at 7:15 am

      I couldn’t agree more. Most satisfying 🙂


  19. August 13, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    At least he is upbeat about all the poo jobs.


  20. August 13, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Ah, King of the Bum Cream – Hollywood is such an aspirational city! Great piece, thank you.


    • August 14, 2020 at 7:20 am

      Surely he will have reached the top of the heap with that moniker!

    His career so far is a reason to leave Hollywood, he might become a writer instead. 🙂


    • August 15, 2020 at 6:13 am

      He’s already got some great ideas for a laxative advert script 🙂


  23. August 14, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    I can only applaud such noble aspirations. 😀 Who wouldn’t want to become Lord of the Bum Cream and go down in history as the man who eliminated painful plopping? Six years in Hollywood definitely rocked this guy’s brains. 😀


    • August 15, 2020 at 6:13 am

      Nothing can stop him now! He’s a star in his own head 🙂

    Hey we all have to start somewhere. Hopefully he can keep going after this. 😉

    Yah, Hollywood rocks! for this guy. I’m sure he’ll rise from here on….


  28. August 16, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Pain-free plopping…Lord of the Laxatives…how do you come up with all this crap? 😉


  29. August 21, 2020 at 10:57 am

    He’s on his way to stardom! He’ll be forever remembered as King of the Bum Cream!😂😂
