Abecedarium of Demise: The Letter O


Olivia Openly criticized the Ostentatious king.
UnOrthodox Observations can be quite a dangerous thing.


For the king hear her Opining and the Offense he could not bear,
he invited Olivia Over and served her the Oral pear.

I must admit, I had to look up "oral pear" to make sense of this. What a perfect torture device for a gossip! Good one as always, Julie!

Poor Olivia, she should hold her tongue in front of the King..

Viki said...

Oh my!! I never heard of an oral pear and had to google it. Nasty!!!
Poor, poor Olivia.

My mind is boggling, what in the world is an Oral Pear? I shudder to think!
Thought provoking post, as always.

Sarah said...

Julie, now I'm going to need to go read about an "oral pear". Olivia should have known better than to Open her mouth in front of the King!
Another great post, Julie! I have such fun on my visit here.

Kass said...

Well, at least it was oral and not the other kinds. The King looks a little too delighted.

Jenny said...

I googled this and let me say I think my gyno guy must sometimes use something like that.

OK.

Ewwwww...

I am really still sitting here imagining the oral pear and suspecting that it hasn't had so many searches - ever!

Thanks for an obscure reference is such an outstanding post!

A+

Catherine said...

Ohhh... poor Olivia. I'll have to look up that pear thing, though I'm not sure I want to know what it is ;) ... ouch.
Outstanding as always my dear!
Blessings,
Catherine :)

Amanda said...

Oh, I don't think Olivia will ever opine against the king again!

Steph said...

Eww... I don't even want to know what the oral pear was. When I first saw your drawings, I thought you might be going for Hamlet or Othello. You really draw so well and think so originally.
