FF – Sergeant Jimminy’s Final Mission

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by C.E. Ayr. Well, I say story… just a bit of fun!

“That’s really pink. A real girlie boat! Does it have lace curtains?”

“You sexist pig! I’m calling the Political Correctness Police.”

Wee-wah-wee-wah screech

“Allo allo allo. I’m Sergeant Jimminy. What’s goin’ on ‘ere then?”

“He called my boat ‘girlie’ because it’s pink.”

“Whaaaaat? You scum! Scum! Get ‘im, lads.”

Aaargh! Thump! Whap!

“In the water with ‘im, lads!”

Splash! Gurgle! Drown!

“That’s that, then, love. You can always rely on me, good ol’ Sergeant Jimminy (wink wink). You get your cute little self onto your dinky pink boat and… uh-oh…”

“Sexist scum! Get ‘im, lads!”

Aaargh! Thump! Whap! Gurgle! Drown! etc

      A momentary lapse in concentration and he’s suddenly on the other side of the fence!

    HAHAHA! I particularly liked the sound effects. Which I read aloud! I would definitely have lace curtains if that was my boat.

      Sound effects are an important part of the experience 🙂
      Lace curtains would be cool.

    That’s too funny, funny because it’s true and sad because it’s true.

    I love this “Splash! Gurgle! Drown!”


    • October 15, 2020 at 6:38 am

      I thought the same.
      I’m glad you liked the sounds effects!

      I hope you were imagining “Whap” inside a comic-strip star a la Batman 🙂

    Hehe! Thank goodness for the Political Correctness Police! You can’t be too vigilant!


    • October 15, 2020 at 6:42 am

      Indeed. They’re there to keep us safe!

    Awwww, the little girlie’s crying because someone made fun of his pink boat….

    It seems political correctness has strict barriers. It’s dangerous territory. 😀 — Suzanne

    Sometimes it’s just easier to say nothing at all.

    Political correctness takes all the colour out of life. The policeman helping the woman is in itself sexist.

      One might say my story was cruising in dangerous territory.

    Aaaaack! Ali!

    Call the PC police! Nice girlie boat. In the pink, I think.

      Dear Rochelle,
      They definitely need to be called on me for that story!

    “good ol’ Sergeant Jimminy” I am afraid I am very much like the Sergeant… But I recognize your right to wear “frilly things”. Doesn’t mean I won’t chuckle – a lot- when you leave.

    I’m sorry, but why would you want a pink boat? It kinda looks like it’s been undercoated and not finished. Slap some dark blue and green on it and you’ll have a boat worth having 😀
    LOL this is so you, D-Man

      Yeah, or slate grey or ninja black 🙂

      Hi Lyn, Sorry to intrude, but if you knew the lady who owns that boat you would not criticise it!
      It is a working fishing boat, and has served its time. I am laughing, of course, but this is all true!

        No offence at all to the lady. I’m partial to fishing myself – I even caught a three inch Flathead one day 😀 How does she manage to keep it so clean with all the fish guts that must be around?


  15. October 16, 2020 at 4:29 am

    This is where the world is heading. But let’s face it, the boat is girlie. 😀

    poor chap, he didn’t know how to hold his tongue. 🙂


  17. October 16, 2020 at 4:56 pm

    I think, Ali, that we need more stories like this, highlighting the folly of the overly PC.
    Oh, it is funny too!

    Who will save the PC Police from the PC Police? Great sound effects too 😉

      No-one, he’s a goner! I’m glad you liked the sound effects, they save a lot of words 🙂

    Like the way the Political Correctness Police, very speedy. Wonder if they’ll go around in ever decreasing circles til they auto destruct ?

    MOL…I like pink boats, maybe because I’m a girlie too…MOL…Great story, Draliman😺Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

      I can just imagine you padding around the deck 🙂


  21. October 17, 2020 at 7:54 pm

    I’m still laughing. Funny in the truth of it. Great dialogue, Ali!


  22. October 17, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    Cute title for the story. He feeds the fishes now, eh?

    These days we could all do with a daily update on what’s been added to the PC no-no list. It won’t long before the term political correctness becomes politically incorrect!

    Here’s mine!

    Political Correctness Police. XD. I have nothing to add to this one. Hilarious.


  26. October 19, 2020 at 8:32 pm

    One slip of the tongue..


  27. October 21, 2020 at 7:31 am

    …and so the story goes. It’s hard to be a sexist pig these days, I tell you. But we had our days. Oh, yes we had our days.
