To thundering applause the curtain rose. Finally in solitude on the scene, he smiled and showed his recently whitened dentures. He felt perfectly in tune with the audience and knew that he finally had taken his first steps toward worldwide fame. Maybe he would become a youtube meme. Humming silently for himself he saw someone approach and wondered who would dare to steal his time in the spotlight. And when that clown sat down and started to hit his sensitive teeth he just took a big bite. And to no one’s surprise he went straight to the top on youtube.

  1. ha,ha,ha, Björn, I’m guessing there are more pianos out there then we can imagine who’d like to take a great big bite out of the person sitting on the piano bench of life!

  2. Dear Björn,

    Well slap me up the side of the head with a metronome! It took me a couple of reads and comments to get it. Clever take on the prompt.



  3. Brilliant – looks like we both know why Harrods shut the Piano Department down then! Great musical references in your finely tuned narration.

  4. You got me! I thought it was the man all the way through until the end, and had to read back through again! So funny! Poor piano, getting hit in the teeth all day!

  5. didn’t get it all till I read the comments, but once the penny dropped, very funny! First story I’ve read from the piano’s point of view.

  6. Laughed! Pianos that don’t like no goons hammering on their ivories is grand in my book.
