Red Light District?

Warning: for those of pure heart and gentle spirit, this is a limerick, and limericks are by nature bawdy.  

Down in Surrey an elegant toff
told his wife that he longed for a boff,
But despite the red light
during dinner that night
Wifey told him that he was cut off.

All in fun for The Mag where a visual writing prompt is posted weekly.

Your Attention Please

I dangle my participles
fully exposed,
while marks from your ballpoint pen
curl up my toes.
Slovenly structures
and mixed metaphors

Yes – I want YOURS!

Here I am!  Right under your nose!
How purple must I make my prose?
Must I act like a fool?  Well ok, here goes:

Here are 55 words of foolishness for G-Man and his FF55.  Check it out for yourself.  With Boris Johnson Mayor of London doing the dangle over the Olympics it seemed the perfect subject for a Flash Friday 55.  Here are some other very funny photo-shopped situations with dangling Boris. And thanks to my special friend for the technical support!
