Trifextra 44: Rebel Scum

For the weekend challenge, we’re asking you to write exactly 33 words about rebellion and/or revolt. Interpret it as you will, just keep it to 33 words.


If you’re planning a startup Empire- first, ally yourself with clumsy aquatic or adorable woodland species. You may not need them, but they’ve assisted rebels in many critical battles, and always (inadvertently) win.

  1. Hi Brian…can anyone participate? because I tried one challenge–and loved it!–but wondered if I should have asked first….

  2. A very good point. Though you have to wonder, what self respecting empire would want to ally with ewoks?

  3. Hahaha! You got me on this one!! But then I read Joetwo and now it’s all making sense! 😀

  4. lmfao This is great–and so true! The number of times my plans have been foiled by squirrels and bunnies…!

  5. But can you can on them when their wins are inadvertant? And who are you calling scum?

  6. I sure wish I paid more attention to Star Wars right about now…if I had I would get to enjoy the full effect of your humor 😉

  7. I adore Star Wars. Great post.

  8. *giggle* You crack me up. 🙂

  9. unevenstevencu

  10. Sounds like an ‘Age of Empires’ theme. I like it 🙂

  11. Mel

    You’re entries are so clever. Love it!

  12. Ah, the great ewok debate. 🙂

  13. Star Wars came to mind immediately of course. Then I reread it and gave it some thought and it could also be the old Disney classic movies like Bambi, Snow White, Cinderella who had a of nature’s little creatures helping them out and foiling the bad guys. Fun stuff.

  14. I love a good set of instructions.

  15. The Ewoks were cute, but deadly.

  16. Somebody needs to write a guide. The things these evil emperors forget…
