Cheerfset for Arlee Bird!

This year's Cheersfest is once again hosted by Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, Stephen Tremp and The Ninja Captain himself.

In which we roast Lee by answering these four questions.

Why did Lee come up with the A-Z Challenge?
Because he didn't have anything better to do. You see, it was a slow day that Sunday....
If someone dreams about being a juggler, what does it mean?
It means you've got too much to do.
Is a post by Mr. Bird worth two in the bush?
Only if the bush is penetrable.

Who could play Lee in a documentary? (Living or dead.)
Since it's a documentary, Lee would play himself.

And in 100 words (give or take a few) write a bit of flash fiction using all these prompts. (Not including the title.)

The Brown Jacketed Bird Juggler

There was once a bird juggler who wore a brown jacketOne day he got it into his birdbrain to try juggling cats. His friends told him he was nuts, but he didn't care. He liked the idea of the challenge. The real trick was catching three cats. The trouble was that whenever he grabbed one by its tail, he wound up being tossed instead of tossing. Life was hard on our brown jacketed juggling bird trying to juggling cats as a challenge. Eventually he give it up and moved to the blog-o-sphere where he took revenge on all cats by inventing The A to Z Challenge.

For Bonus Points:
·                     In +/- 40 words, can you come up with a caption for Lee’s Facebook picture? 
Is she really not wearing any underwear?

Two winners – chosen by Lee – will each win a prize:
·                     An autographed color photo of Arlee Bird appearing as the Court Wizard in the World of Fantasy Players. Also included in the first prize pack are an assortment of promotional materials from Lee’s show biz days with a personal letter and a brief history of his entertainment career.
·                     A personalized graphics design from Jeremy at Being Retro for the winner’s blog. (Jeremy will design a header, badge, button, banner, or whatever might appeal to the winner.)

Happy Cheersfest, Lee!


  1. So the Challenge is revenge on cats? Very clever, Mr. Bird!
    Thanks for participating in CheersFest, Bish!

  2. Ha! The cats outwitted him! That's just a very feline thing to do ;)

    Happy roasting, Arlee!!!

  3. Juggling cats-how clever of a bird!
    I loved yours~

  4. I know better than to juggle cats! Those suckers have claws.

  5. I liked the randomness of your caption.

  6. No, she really is wearing underwear. He simply can't see straight through all those juggling pins.

  7. Juggling cats, YIKES! I love it. And the expression on Lee's face lends itself perfectly to your caption. Why didn't I think of that?

  8. Good point about the documentary. I didn't think of that. He's the obvious choice to play himself.

    I enjoyed your roast-post, Bish.

  10. Hahaha---this is all too much fun, Bish! Wonderful work here. I totally enjoyed your FF piece and your answers. Too funny. I'm so glad you participated--I hope Lee feels loved! :)

  11. Now we know the real reason behind A to Z is all about "revenge on the cats!" Makes perfect sense! Very funny Bish!


  12. I loved you flash fic, the silly caption, and everything, Bish! Yay for Lee and the Cheersfest! ;-)

  13. Aha, so it was for revenge on the cats! Good one! I like how you picked Lee to play himself. :)

  14. Picturing jiggling cats had me laughing. :)

    I know I make this look easy, it's the jacket.

  15. Finally I get to play myself!

    You had some interesting answers that I am now dwelling upon. The caption tops it off. What are you doing this week-end?

  16. Good going, Bish. Your caption made me chuckle.

  17. Some dicey comments from the ladies. Must have Lee in stitches reading them. Well done.

  18. Every time someone mentions Lee I think they're talking about me. Happy Cheersfest, Bish. Glad you hopped on board and teased him a bit.
