...where Pen is mightier than the sword...
Yes, he had a strong back. Nice one.
Hahaha - and do YOU have broad shoulders? ;-)
You guessed! LOL :)
That's a quick thinking corker or a comment! :)
It's a novel (well, that's what she calls it) by Ayn Rand.
I've just noted a typo in my previous comment - I meant 'corker OF a comment'...but now you've messed with my head Doc - What's the title of that novel - 'He Shrggged' or 'It's a corker' ? Give us a clue...
'Tis called "Atlas Shrugged" It's a panegyric to ruthless selfishness. Rand believed that this was what made America successful and the World a Better Place.
Right...That's one book I shan't put on my Christmas list for Santa, then. LOL :)
Happy to add to Anthony, Catfish and Rick's comments .... especially the 'shrugged' .. very nice!
excellent- love how your brain "ticks"!
And no 'Tocks' allowed!
Nicely written aphorism.Wonderful word plays in the comments here.
The Penny took a while to drop! Atlas = Map = Prompt, of course . . . neat haiku.
Tortoise and hare, Doc, tortoise and hare... LOL :)
oh cool you changed it. of all the mags ive done, i never thought to manipulate the actual photo. i salute your creativity.
Excellent twist, Jinksy
Creative, as always and enjoyable as well!
is that why I bear so many?
You could have a point there!LOL.... N.B. mine are wider than average. :)
I love the age old image of Atlas bearing the weight of the world...this was a great place to go in words for this. I really like what you did with the image as well. Great work Jinksy and thank you for your visit! :)
Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's book, but 'Map lass shrugged' is all yours Penny!
Thanks for explaining the Cryptic Comments above, Mary! And if that map were really tattooed on a woman's skin, I bet she'd shrug her shoulders too! Ouch! :)
Your vision is more than dynamic..as usual..just pulses with energy!
Awesome play on words and photos Jinksy!!
I'd need shoulder pads......*sigh*
Just shows how 'weighty' grappling with the world's problems can be! Nicely done with the image Jinsky!Hank
NUMBER 33Broad shoulders maya chief obey.But give me heartwhich beats to part!
A pleasingly creative response to the prompt.
..super short yet power packed... loved your reference to atlalas.. smiles...
...oops... i mean 'Atlas'... hope he won't throw the entire world in my back for murdering his name... hihi...
Clever stuff Jinksy - well done.Anna :o]
Clever once again! The 'alteration' makes an enticing design.
Ask Atlas! Wonderful... I think that could be a new meme... xxxj
And the world is printed on the soul of her skin ;-)
You can see the strength here my friend.
