100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #48

July 3, 2012

I knew this would happen.  ‘I blame it on the dog’; a poor defenseless dog. He has got the cream and the cake already; I have seen it .  There will be more unsolved crimes he will be responsible for; I am sure.  In the puppet show; Punch and Judy cruelly condemned Toby. To add insult to injury he got hit with Punch’s stick and truncheon of the policeman. Even my brother blamed his antisocial intestinal behaviour on the dog. This is unacceptable!  
Why can’t we stand up and be accountable for our crimes and tell them straight.  It was my little sister all the time.

These images were taken from a book in our Children’s Collection Punch and Judy written by Frederic E. Weatherly and illustrated by Patty Townsend. 1885.

    I like this take, plus the historical twist. Punch and Judy (and puppets in general) intrigue me.
