“Look what the sun’s done to that! It’s all warped and melted!”

“Wow, yes. The sunlight is hot! Just standing in it is so warming!”

“Don’t stand in it, dude!”

“Why not? It’s perfecfnjg smff. Wsds goong oon?”

“Aargh! Your face! It’s hideous! It’s melted off!” bleurgh… bleurgggghhhhh!


Disappearing zone layer. Global warming. It’s here. It’s now!

Do you want your face to melt off? You can help!

    Entrepreneurs will always find a way to cash in!

      “Entrepreneur” – that’s a very charitable term for these chaps!

      You can never go wrong with a tin-foil hat.

    That’s pretty much how the summers here in Spain feels… Where do I pay?

    That’s a big collection bin, Ali — They must be expecting a lot of cash from suck … I mean, donors!


    • October 1, 2020 at 5:05 am

      Yes, “donors”. All our staff have been on courses to learn the correct vocabulary 🙂

    Oh the poor souls. Do you accept PayPal?

      We do, I reckon that’s pretty untraceable… um, I mean, convenient 🙂

    Maybe using PayPal would be a good idea…at least that way you can always get a refund if the “purchase” fails to impress 😀

    You should have linked your Paypal account D!

      And maybe one of those long Bitcoin wallet addresses too, I hear they’re nicely anonymous… 🙂

    I immediately wrote a check to CASH for one million dollars. But as soon as I ripped it out of the book…… POOF! Into flames. Oh well, I guess I can’t make a difference…


    • October 3, 2020 at 4:13 am

      Some people would say “it’s the thought that counts”, but not me. I want the money…


  10. October 1, 2020 at 10:04 am

    There’s always someone out to make a buck. And always someone willing to facilitate.


    • October 3, 2020 at 4:14 am

      Yep, you can’t turn around for stumbling over someone trying to rip off your hard-earned cash these days.

    Har! Har! CASH is real. There are people who believe we must not use solar power as we could end up draining the Sun of its energy.


    • October 3, 2020 at 4:18 am

      It’s okay though, if you have power stored up you can switch your solar panels from “suck” to “blow” and send all the energy back to the sun 🙂

    They should make it a limited company and go on Dragon’s Den with it!


  13. October 1, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if someone tried to send a check to your organization 🙂


  14. October 1, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    Ha ha – I didn’t see where that was going. Great take on the photo prompt, thanks for surprising me! 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! When you can’t think of an ending… turn it into an advert 🙂


  15. October 1, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    there’s always somebody willing to fall for this scam. where do i send the check?


    • October 3, 2020 at 4:29 am

      Just send it to me and I’ll “take care of it”, but remember to make it out to CASH 🙂

      Dear Rochelle,
      Hee hee 🙂 It sounds like help can’t come too soon!


  17. October 3, 2020 at 4:14 am

    Oh no! He’s melting! (in the wicked witch’s voice from Oz) I’m not sure about the cheque made out to cash though. Hmm. Entertaining as always!


    • October 3, 2020 at 4:41 am

      It’s all perfectly above board, honest 😉


  18. October 4, 2020 at 3:02 pm

    Sounds like a great cause. Before I donate, I need to see how the money is spent to prevent my face from melting. Not too much to ask, right? 🙂

    I have questions. LOL. Fun story!


    • October 5, 2020 at 5:02 am

      Probably best to ask questions of this lot. I doubt you’ll get an answer, though!

    I cnsnt I’m metled…MOL😸More Pawkisses🐾😽💞

    Congratulations on 100 FFs. I have no idea how many I’ve written.
    Of course that fact that I keep taking time off because I’m too tired to write doesn’t help.
    Never the less I should count.
    Sorry I don’t have cash for CASH. But when I do have the cash, I’m buying a winter coat.


    • October 21, 2020 at 5:26 am

      100 word story – I’ve done years of FF, I must be up between 400 and 500 by now! That’s quite a thought 🙂
      A winter coat sounds a better way to spend you cash than sending it to these jokers!
