Wordle #71 “July 27, 2015″ – Joey Dogsbody


This week’s words to play with: Streetwise Ganglion (a mass of nerve tissue existing outside the central nervous system, Pathology: a cyst or enlargement in connection with the sheath of a tendon, usually at the wrist. a center of intellectual or industrial force, activity, etc.) Rags Bracket Implosive Creepy Delinquent Geometric Cheap Near Charnel (a repository for dead bodies) Extend

Joey Dogsbody was not the most streetwise guy around. In fact not only was he a nobody he was a hairy nobody. If he didn’t shave he developed massive growth around his face to the point where his face disappeared behind his hedge of hairiness.

His clothing was often described as raggy, it was true Joey didn’t care much about his appearance, which only added to the overall sense that he was all intents and purposes a creepy sort of guy.

In his youth he had been quite the delinquent and had become very familiar with the local police being on a first name basis with so many. Joey had, as he aged, developed very distinctive ganglions on his forearms. Large geometric shapes that bracketed his wrists in small dome like structures each more hideous than the other and only adding to the air of creepiness that was Joey.

He wanted to be somebody in life, his experience working in the town’s charnel had taught him that death was a permanent state and he had no immediate plans to go down that path.

Near to where he lived was a cheap and nasty hotel in which Joey conducted business. He sold cheap and nasty underwear, did a roaring trade especially in his range of implosive knickers unique in that they didn’t explode as was the common thought with underwear but rather imploded giving the wearer a more than stimulating experience.

Such was the success of his imploding knickers that he attempted to extend his business to the Sunday Flea market only to see his whole venture implode seriously when the more than serious and very creepy Bracket gang muscled in on his business driving him out as they claimed the market was a family affair and if they couldn’t sell the imploding knickers no one was.

Soon after Joey started up an on-line business and made a fortune selling his imploding knickers to the four corners of the globe including down town Conservativeville Montana.

Everybody wore them, there were thrills going on in every town in every second of the day. It was true to say Joey Dogsbody had created an industrial ganglion requiring not too much intellectual input for a whole bunch of physical delight.

    Lol, never thought I’d read about imploding knickers, Michael. Actually, I wondered if there was a link to that Joey guy’s online business? Just wanted to take a look-see. ;

  3. This is genius Michael! I love that you used the words so fully and multiple times, you really embraced them. I love the description of Joey particularly his arms “shudders” and the imploding knickers comic genius!

    This would have to be one of your weirdest and wackiest Wordle,s Michael 🙂 The question, “Do they come with sound effects, or are they completely silent?” comes to mind.
    How do you manage to come up with these crazy tales?

    • I’m sure there is a deluxe model complete with sound effects including any voice you choose and with a choice of appropriate sounds to add to your thrilling experience.
      Where do I get these ideas? I blame Yves…lol…..then again the word implosive did get me thinking.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    Once again, a knock out of a write – with so much humor – yes *snorting season has continued*
    that it was a treat to read.

    Such a brilliant imagination that you allow free reign in expression Michael – great job 🙂
