Thanks again to our judge, Siobhan Muir (@SiobhanMuir) for making the very tough calls about to be revealed (assuming you haven’t already scrolled past this point, ya cheater).

So get ready to spread the good news, lavish praise, and in general know that you all seriously kicked ass this week and I can’t wait for next week:

Honorable Mentions

Sharon Wachsler (@aftergadget)

Most original idea for all three prompts

“I logged into Uxorious Eunuchs and asked about lingual fibrillators.”

David A. Ludwig (@DavidALudwig)

Most original interpretation of marriage (Married to my car? Yes, I am.)

“Any time it was sunny, or the leaves were changing, or flowers were blooming, or it was dark, or even if the road was wet—she wanted to go for a drive.”

Michael A. Kozlowski (@MAKozlowski)

Best “feel good” revenge (This one made judge Siobhan and her husband laugh)

“Just like her to use some word out of one of her romance novels just to make him feel small and stupid. So what if he had had to ask what it meant?”


Week One Judge’s Pet

Juan Pablo Hurtado (@righteousgeek)

Siobhan says: “Hurtado not only used it correctly, and mentioned everything, but he also got the exact feeling of uxorious in the male of the story. He nailed it, hands down.”

“You will be the death of me,” Alora told Jedediah, the hapless man hunkering down in the passenger’s seat.

“What is so hard about whipping up a decent frog stew? Nothing!” she added theatrically, her hands waving in the air. The broom swerved dangerously for an instant.

“Warts, Matilda is going to have a field day at the conclave,” she said, retaking the steering wheel. “She’ll totally notice that this runny, flavorless muck is store-bought.”

“I… I don’t think…”

“Exactly! You. Don’t. Think. At all!”


Week One Champion

D. Ryan Leask (@DRyanLeask)

Siobhan says: “Leask got all the aspects and even the feeling of the men hoping the women would stop them. He captured not only the three prompts but the essence of uxorious in the chagrin of the males, and the humor of roadracing minivans! Well done!”

Men Will Be Boys

They all knew how silly this was. It was Mark’s idea, he was the asshole of the bunch, always boasting about how he ‘wore the pants.’

“You’re a bunch of uxorious douche-bags.” They were sitting in Kyle’s garage drinking and bitching about their wives.

“I bet you a-holes don’t even know what that means.” Mark said smugly.

“I know what a douche-bag is; I’m looking at one right now.” Peter, Kyle’s next door neighbour, tossed his empty in the trash and eyed down Mark.

“Easy boys,” Kyle said, “I think what Mark said is that we’re all just a little pussy-whipped.”

“A little?” Mark laughed. “I bet Greg’s wearing his wife’s panties right now.

Greg, who had been sitting quietly, stood on his seat and dropped trou.

Everyone laughed except Mark. He was beyond Greg’s humour.

“Let’s raise the stakes a little then boys.” Mark said. “Prove you’re not a bunch of wife-whipped pussies. Let’s have us a little race, let’s see who’s pussy-mobile has the smallest vagina and the biggest balls.”

So here they were in their wives’ mini-vans praying to God that at least one of the wives would look up from her Martini and stop this lunacy.

Pass on the great news! FB, Twitter, smoke signals. I’m not picky. Check out all of this week’s offerings here, and be sure to come back next #MenageMonday!

And to my very first Champion and Judge’s Pet… I present: Your badges. Display them with pride. (And DM me if you need any adjustments made to them, lol. They are currently transparent PNG files (ginormous ones at that, so you can fit them wherever – I’m so not a “badge” maker, I’m a “really freaking cool image” maker), which look SPECTACULAR on light backgrounds, but fade into nothing against dark ones. I am happy to adjust them to your requirements.)
