Revenge smells like garlic... sort of.

"This is the very best marinara sauce EVER," gushed Marie. "It's positively brimming with garlic."

Lyle frowned. "But I thought garlic gave you really bad gas. And we have to ride home together."

"That's what I mean," Marie smiled evilly. "It's the perfect way to pay you back for not doing the dishes last night."

Noxious 55. Guess that's what they made car windows for.

Janna said...

MonkeyMan: Funny you should mention that. I really wanted to include a part about how he couldn't roll the window down-- but I ran out of words!

Pheromone Girl said...

Oh, MM - you and the flatulence jokes. I can just hear an evil giggle in the background.

LOVE the revenge aspect, Janna. Glorious!

Janna said...

PheromoneGirl: The most fun giggles are the evil ones. :)

Brian Miller said...

G-Man said...

nonamedufus said...

That was funny. Sometimes your humour just bowels me over.

Austin said...

Ha ha ha! It's a premeditated Dutch Oven Death!

hedgewitch said...

Evil, devious and underhanded. I love it.

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

I like garlic, but it don't like me.

(But I eat it anyway!) :)

Belinda said...

Ha ha! Delicious yet noxious 55. Love it.

RNSANE said...

I can survive ANYTHING after riding in the car with my three sons. I can't believe anything that foul comes out of someone's body.

My Friday Flash 55 is at:

Remember all the terrific mothers in your life every day of the year!!

Olivia said...


I love garlic.. but only till then.. :) hahaha

Hugs xox

Steve Isaak said...

LOL, fun piece.

Mama Zen said...


Margaret said...

!!! Cabbage is a killer too. And asparagus has an interesting side affect too. Very funny - I love the "pay back"!

Christine said...

Refried beans, my family hides when they see me opening the can.

Janna said...

Brian: Marinara is indeed delicious. The garlickier the better. :)

G-Man: Yay! Is there such a thing as NON-noxious flatulence?

MorningAJ: Right now my mind is unemployed, which just gets it into trouble.

nonamedufus: LOL! Groan!

Austin: Let's see CSI try to figure THAT one out!

Jingle: Imagery and scent and horror. Yes!

PBJdreamer: "Cute" is best when it has a touch of garlic.

hedgewitch: Hee! :)

Bubba: Good for you! Me too. :)

Belinda: Thank you!

RNsane: Three sons riding in the car at one time? And you lived??

Olivia: Yay for garlic! Rah Rah Rah!

Steve: Thanks for visiting!

MamaZen: I saved this one for quite a few months because I didn't want to be known as the lady who always does the fart jokes. But it seemed like this week was the right time, finally. :)

Margaret: I've heard about asparagus making some people's pee stink. I've tried it, and it never did that to me. I'm not sure whether to be disappointed or grateful.

Christine: My mom and I live in different cities, and she STILL cringes when I talk about buying beans. :)
