Trifextra 33 – Three Tines

This weekend’s challenge is:

The Rule of Three is a writing principle that asserts that, in writing, groups of three have the most impact. This week’s challenge is to write 33 words using the Rule of Three somewhere among them. It is up to you to interpret the rule, just make sure to use exactly 33 words.

I thought about this and while reading the Wikipedia article, noticed there were stories/tales with 3 characters used as examples. So I thought up my own fantabulous trio that you may notice from time to time. I present to your voting selfs – “A Tale of Three Forks”.


Skinny fork claimed, “salads start every meal perfectly.”
Heavy fork bragged, “I’m the main attraction!”
Dainty fork boasted, “I’ll satisfy every sweet tooth.”

Spoon, Plate & Knife agreed – “Get the forks outta here!”

  1. YOHO!! Anything with an F-Bomb or variant gets my bronx cheer of approval. (It’s my favorite word, ya know)

  2. Very clever and very fun to read!

  3. A pun with the f-word. I’m in heaven. Great take on the prompt.

  4. Heh. That is the perfect cap line.

  5. Fun with a teensy, clever groan at the end! Liked it. Madame Weebles had the best comment, there… Thanks, Amy

    That was forking amazing! Sound like something my hubs would come up with. He likes to drop “fork” bombs all the time in place of the real deal. Gets the double take every time…Hahaha!

  8. This was awesome! I read it at work today and laughed out loud (co-workers thought I was nuts before, now they know it :))

  9. So clever! Or should I say Forkin’ Clever? hehe.

  10. Badda Bing! Bravo Braintomahawk! I love it when eating utensils have a life! 😀

    Three forks up! on the piece .

  13. Really, really well done. You have the three forks and cleverly echoed the three with the spoon, plate and knife(!) and finished with a joke 🙂

    Wish I could train my mouth to use “fork” instead. Oh, so clever!
