Wordplay Thursday #86

Wordplay Thursday

Welcome to Wordplay Thursday!

Here’s a writing prompt for you.  It’s a simple fill-in-the-blank. You can use one word or several. Feel free to get as crazy, genre-appropriate, or as imaginative as you want. The point is to get the creative juices flowing. And it’s a good thing to dig deeper, so don’t stop at the first idea that hits you. Try coming up with at least five things.

“She’s as innocent as _____.”

I’ll give you an example to get you started:

“She’s as innocent as an axe murderer.”

I’d love to hear what you come up with, so please share in the comments. Oh, and please keep your posts below an R-rating. It’s a family show, after all!

God Bless,

  1. 1. a new bride on a spring wedding day all dressed in white. 2. a cat caught in a bird cage. 3. as her newborn baby’s eyes. 4. a thief in the night but she looks good in stripes.

  2. as the Devil with a blue dress on…( Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels )

    as the day is long…nobody said anything about the night…

    as a politician accepting gratuities…from questionable sources…

    as an on line scammer…saying you won a year’s supply of free gas…

    as a young puppie that is still learning to walk….

    1. Funny you should mention online scammers, Kim. About an hour ago, I got a call from some guy claiming that my phone number had been randomly selected by the government to receive a $9,000 grant- just for being a good citizen!

      I played along for a while just to see where he was going with it. Finally, I got tired of trying to decipher his thick foreign accent, so I told him to get some honest work, quit scamming people and I hung up.


      1. They never stop trying Brent…almost everyday…I get emails from people telling me…they’re under some form of duress…due to the fact…their government is persecuting them…& in the process of appropriating all their money…& if I could help them out… by giving them my all my bank account information…they would deposit millions into my account & give me 50%…yeah right…I actually wrote a song about people like this…anyway since this is family show…I can’t repeat what my replies were to these crooks…good on you Brent! Hopefully he’ll quit scamming people & get some honest work…on the other hand…sad to say…I don’t think he will…it’s a numbers game with these creeps…

  3. She’s as innocent as _____.

    A smoke ring at a Jimmy Buffet concert.

    A third date kiss.

    Her wedding dress.

    A nife in my heart.

    An antifreeze milkshake.

  4. She’s as innocent as
    …a fridge full of processed foods
    …a hawk standing over nothing but feathers
    …these scammers that keep calling and telling me I have a Windows issue and want personal info, when I don’t have a computer
    …a sunrise on Easter morning 🙂

  5. “She’s as innocent as…” -the fingers crossed behind her back. -white dress she’s wearing. -a conterfeiter on payday. -the trigger finger on a gun slinger. -the first ant in the sugar bowl.
