Googo Eyes was spilling his guts.

Kooko Brain laughed. Star Face was ambivalent of all.

Googo Eyes never did visit them at the funny farm.

Well they're a motley crew aren't they LOL
 
I had Kookoo Brain and Star Face both laughing at Googoo Eyes (but I called him Pumpy) for his spilling his guts. Kudos to you for using the WOTW. I couldn't think of a way to use it....I was in a hurry.
 
FANTASTIC names for pumpkins! Love that carved one up front. Remind me not to meet you in a dark alley. You'd say something creepy and I'd scream so loud, you'd drop your candy!
 
That was great fun. Excellent names :-)
 
This is quite the kErAzY pumpkin patch! And your mention of Googo Eyes not wanting to pay visits to the funny farm, has me remembering a wonderful(?) Halloween "carol"! Thank you for that, because I had forgotten all about it, and now is the perfect time of the year to put it on my mental Playlist! You are cordially invited to listen to the HOLIDAY CLASSIC (<--cLiCkY-cLiCkY!) presently "singing" in my head!
 
I wouldn't want to visit the funny farm, either. Certainly not if KooKoo Brain or Star Face were not engaging!
 
Can't blame for not wanting to visit the funny farm. lol
 
Poor Googoo Eyes has such a sensitive disposition, doesn't he? LOL I don't blame him for staying away, when he has friends who laugh at him so.
 
Sparkle, I remember that song very well! And it gets into your head too!

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to
leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...
You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see
I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said
that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???
I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..


They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you pay me back
for all my kind unselfish loving deeds.. Huh??
Well you just wait, they'll find you yet and when they do they'll put you
in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!!! And...

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy
to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming
to take me away, ha-haaa!!!
To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haa!!!
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time... (fade out)

Hey, buddy!
Yes officer..
You a head?
No, but I'm catching up, ha ha ha....

They look like they'd all be quite at home at the funny farm.

:)
 
i'm gonna be singing that song all day now LOL & if anyone hears me offkey, they'll "take me away"
 
Enjoyed your microfiction, then enjoyed the music and lyrics for Funny Farm. Thanks to both you and Sparkle for that one.

I've finally posted the next photo - between losing internet and then getting sick, I'm way behind. Thanks so much for all your visits and comments. I really appreciate them.
