Susan’s Picture:
My story:
Shirley and Laverne decided to buck the tradition.
They could still be sisters of the heart but
polyandry would be more profitable and fun.

  2. Schlemile, Schlemozzle, Hausenfeffer Incorporated. Of course it would be Lenny and Squiggy. Excellent. :)

  3. Your post made me chuckle, then Thom's comment made me shudder. Lenny and Squiggy might be Lavern's style, but I know Carmen has to be one of Shirl's husbands!

  4. I think polyandry should be made legal, hehe.;)))
    Have a great Monday and thank you for making mine start with a smile.;)

  5. Well, polyandry means a woman having more than one husband at a time. I hear this can be popular - even though they're only married to one of them ;-)

  6. lol. thanks for teaching me a new word today...and i imagine it definitely more profitable...smiles.

  7. More fun but choose carefully and only from the rich list! Most amusing take!

  8. A very clever one...well done!

  9. Awww...what a sweet fun post! Wonderful!

  10. I'm glad you placed a link for polyandry because I did't have a clue what it meant. LOL. Your story is too funny and clever!

    p.s. I’m holding blogfest in November. If you get time, pop along and have a look.

  11. And Carmine, Thom. They need more than Lenny and Squiggy.

  12. That was awesome, Nessa! Polyandry could be a new movement..

  13. Cool post. Thanks. Your posts make you think.

    Didn't know that word. Seems like the guys are usually the ones with more then 1 wife. Gals should get the chance as in your word polyandry.

  14. Laverne and Shirley, I never would have thought of this. Thanks for leaving the link, I am sure Thom appreciated it as much as I did.

    Laugh at Thom's comment about Lenny and Squiggy, then laugh at Quilly's response at Thom's comment. This was good Nessa

  15. One husband is more than enough trouble most of the time. Are they CRAZY???

    well done!

  16. I also learned something from your blog. Nice one.

  17. Yep, I had to click the link to find out what it meant.

    Personally, the idea of living with two husbands, is exhausting.

  18. Thom: For their sakes, I hope not although towards the end they did get kind of sweet.

    quilly: She could fool around with a clear good girl conscience.

    Zuzana: As long as all of the hubbies had jobs or watched the kids.

    anthonynorth: Must be why the divorce rate is so high – people forgot the meaning of the word.

    Brian Miller: Just an old custom from when women accepted their own power.

    jabblog: Perhaps each one could have a special and unique quality.

    Deborah: Thanks.

    Kiki: This situation could be lots of fun.

    Ellie: I’m not sure I like the word as it sounds like multiple laudry to me and I hate housework.

    Doug: And Ritchie and Fonzie…

    Mumsy: I am on the cutting edge of fashion ;)

    BeccA's Buzz: Don’t we all.

    Sue: I believe in equality of the sexes.

    Bill ~ {The Old Fart}: Those two are like their own L & S show :)

    SouthLakesMom: I must say, I wouldn’t care for the practice. Now, if we were talking boy-toy, that’d be different.

    Alice Audrey: Amazonia.

    Peggy: I’m going to be rated an educational site soon. ;)

    jennifer: Truth be told, I agree.

  19. LOL! We were on similar wave lengths this week--except I went for mail-order brides!

  20. Yeah this is a funny one.... I did have to look up polyandry. But I kinda think that makes me like it moe!

  21. I, too, learned a new word today. So, can polyandrous women share their multiple husbands? No, probably not...that would just be too kinky. Interesting take on this week's pic.

  22. LOL - more power to them. I have trouble keeping up with one husband.

  23. Haha! Maybe not but I'm smiling for sure. :)

    I learned a couple of new words, there were many I could have learned: polyandry and adelphogamy. Same facts but the first is legal and the other is a crime.

  24. Reminds me of a TV show I watched once. Interesting take on pic Nessa. Have a great week.

  25. Excellent, excellent micro-fiction.

  26. sylviamorice: I thought someone would do Siamese twins but no one did.

    Together We Save: It’s better when you have to work for it a bit.

    Mama Zen: Thanks.

    Pat: That’s called an orgy ;)

    Shelley Munro: ne is good for me, too.

    Jim: There are some sets of brothers who I wouldn’t mind marrying.

    Jillien: Thanks.

    Arts Web Show: Thank-you.

    KB: This whole concept has given me an idea for a story.

    christopher: Thank-you very much.

  27. Good one! My first time to hear this word, polyandry and I learn something today.

  28. HMMM. i think one to care for is enough fun! ;)

  29. Eden: We must stretch our brains every once in a while.

    EG Wow: Fun is a nice way to put it.

  30. I'm surprised at the number of readers who say they had to look up "polyandry". But that's just me being my normal derogatorising self.

  31. masterymystery: I was a little surprised too but it's not used often.

  32. What an excellent suggestion! I like the way these girls (and you!) think -- this is a fun one.
