Hello everyone. This is Jen filling in for Oloriel at the Tale Weaver Prompt.
I really, really like the writing generators at Seventh Sanctum! For this week I tested their “What If” generator. It puts together some really wild, random “what if” questions. (Check it out!)
I “spun the dice” on the site and received the following question. And it was a doozy:
What if Genghis Khan switched places with Charles Dickens?
Good question! What if the Supreme Khan of the Mongols landed on the streets of Victorian London? What if the author of The Christmas Carol and David Copperfield found himself on the Eurasian steppes?
If neither of these people pique your interest, play switcheroo with any author and any warrior. (For instance, swap George Patton and Jack Kerouac.)
You can be as serious or as funny as you want to be – just have fun!
When you are finished, please TAG your prompt Tale Weaver’s Prompt and MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to Mister Linky. Also – pingbacks are *great* – in case the tagging system or the widget are temperamental.

“We’re at war.”
“You’re in charge.”
“Great. Let’s get some booze, a few girls, a fast car and hit the road.”
“But it’s a war. We’re fighting a bunch of other guys.”
“Bring them. The more the merrier.”
“I don’t think you get it Jack. We’re supposed to kill them.”
“You know, shoot them or take them prisoners and then torture and kill them.”
“Man, I’m not into that.”
“You’re our leader.”
“I’m for partying and writing on weird paper, man, without using acceptable punctuation.”
“What are your orders?”
“Tell the other guys the war’s over and to get a car, some pretty women and I’ll bring the booze and the weed.”
“I don’t think the president will like this.”
“Then tell him to come here and fight them. After all he started it.”

This is awesome in so many ways — LOVE IT!
“I’m for partying and writing on weird paper, man, without using acceptable punctuation” — what a hoot!
And while this could have dissolved into something silly, you kept it sharp with that great ending. Great stuff. 🙂
Thank you so much. It was fun writing it. I love Jack and this is exactly what he would do:) LOLOL
I do believe you’re right! LOL!
I enjoyed hitandrun 1964’s take on war!
“Then tell him [the president] to come here and fight them. After all he started it.” is a great line.
If presidents and other world leaders had to be on the front lines (as such people were in the past), I suspect less wars would be called for.
Amen — you’ve got that right!!!!
