Friday Fictioneers: A Clue

Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt. Each week’s challenge is to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo. Click here to play along or just read more stories.


I probably shouldn’t participate this week. I’m way behind on last week’s comments. If life is a snow globe, someone filled mine with shit and shook it up on Friday. This perfectly sums up my life since then. At 7 this morning, while debating whether or not I was ready to get up, a dog who doesn’t even live here came into my room, shat on my floor, and left.

I love FF and appreciate Rochelle and everyone else who makes it possible. Creativity is my life force, so I’m playing. This is just something super goofy that’s taken from an actual conversation, and I’m basically trolling my friend. Let’s hope Disney doesn’t sue me. I’m going to try to catch up and be better about comments. I’m going to try the app on my phone, which is glitchy as hell and only works sometimes.

A Clue

“You are too old to be playing Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers. It wasn’t even that good. It was a poor man’s Roger Rabbit, just fan service, cameos, and meta humour.”

“I love that stuff. We have to do this. Sometimes, some crimes…”

“Don’t start. It’ll be in my head all day.”

go slippin’ through the cracks, but these two gumshoes are picking up the slack.”


There’s no case too big, no case too small. When you need help just call…”

“I will push you off this roof.”

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers.”

“Is that a clue? Bloody hell!”


Is it awesome or pathetic that I knew the Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers Theme Song just off the top of my head. I looked it up to be sure and didn’t have to change anything.

      1. Meant in the best way. I really don’t like that kind of animation, but as I listened I thought your voice would be perfect for animation. Sorry I rushed with my comment, should have said this first round through. I’ll try to be better with my next comment.

      2. I know you didn’t mean it to be mean. It actually made me laugh. I would love to voice animation. I tried, but it didn’t go anywhere. Maybe I wasn’t good enough or didn’t stick with it long enough.

      3. It’s a cool video. It’s an animated recap of James Brown’s life set to “It’s A Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World.” I left a comment and gave them a follow.

  1. And here I thought “Chip ‘N’ Dale’s” was a touring male dance troupe best known for performances and dancers’ distinctive upper body costume of a bow tie, collar, and shirt cuffs worn on an otherwise bare torso. 🙂

  2. I think there would be a lot of us who remember the theme tunes from our favourite TV shows. For me it’s Robin Hood and Popeye. Good on you for rising to the FF challenge after such a terrible few days. I must say I’m wondering about the stray dog. In your bedroom?? Fun story.

    1. There’s something about theme songs. The best and worst stick with us forever.

      She’s not a stray. She’s staying here for a while. She decided I wasn’t up early enough to let her out.

      Thank you.

  3. Oh this is fun, the converstation is hilarious and you can feel that they like each other.
    That dog wandering in… I’m sorry but that made me laugh. Dogs are something, aren’t they?

  4. Dear Nobbin,

    I really didn’t get the references, but enjoyed your reading nonetheless. (And the dog with the cup on his nose 😉 )
    Years and years ago in high school, a friend and I played Tweedledee and Tweedledum in a stage production of Alice in Wonderland. We used (the old) Chip and Dale voices although I think we got the parts because we were both short.
    I understand about the week. It seems my dance card is filling up substantially which is why I’m so late getting around to reading and commenting. Good one in any case. So happy you feel so connected to Friday Fictioneers. You made my morning.

    1. The references aren’t really as important as the friendship and the banter. It was just a goofy story.

      I’d like to hear the Chip ‘N’ Dale voice.

      I wasn’t around before you ran FF, but I can say you do a wonderful job of cultivating it, and you are appreciated.

      Thank you, Rochelle
