Photo Phollies #10 – You've Got Mail!

Faux Stories From Real Pictures

Ronald Drumpf has never seen the upside of success like his more famous second cousin Donald Trump has. While both branches of the genealogical tree have had long careers in real estate, the Trump name has been more synonymous with upscale ventures.

Ronald Drumpf, on the other hand didn’t seem to have the vision, ego, or more grandiose projects that his high profile relative is known for. The Drumpf name was on such unspectacular structures such as storage warehouses, military barracks and juvenile detention centers. Drumpf’s most ambitious project was the failed Drumpf Potty World Amusement Park where the most popular ride was a giant replica of a human colon. It failed in its first season. Besides the lack of patrons, bad publicity ensued when a 10-year-old boy was trapped for four hours inside a large sigmoid.

There was also no love lost between the two family factions. The schism began when one side chose to drop the ancestral spelling of their stoic last name for that of a common term used in pedestrian card games.

Ronald Drumpf had fallen on hard times. In addition to his failed businesses, he gambled heavily in the stock market and everything he invested in turned to lead (especially his large holdings in a lead-based paint company). His health declined and so did his actual house in a nondescript corner of Upstate New York, extremely close to the Canadian border, but not close enough to take advantage of Canadian health care.

In a moment of desperation, Ronald Drumpf reached out to his famous agnate magnate in the hopes of getting a hand up. Plus deep inside he always wanted to bury the hatchet and end the generational family feud.

Along with a lengthy letter, Drumpf sent pictures of his family house to Trump in the hopes that Donald would take mercy on Ronald and help him out financially. In the letter he even stressed how he had to walk five miles into town just to mail the letter.

Trump responded almost immediately. He dug deep into his pockets and sprung for a brand new mailbox in front of Drumpf’s house. So while Ronald Drumpf still lives in squalor he now has the best looking mailbox in his neighbourhood.

And as a bonus, like clockwork each month he finds discount coupons for Trump Steaks inside. Because that’s what family’s for!

That’s the Stuph – the way I see it!

Photo Phollies #9 – A Fowl Farewell

Faux Stories From Real Pictures
He was a respected leader in his community. A winged warrior. A feathered friend. Sgt. Sidney Schlitz served his country admirably; he was a highly decorated flyer in the Air Force. From the time he hatched, Sgt. Schlitz was a beak ahead of all others, soaring to unimaginable heights. He never shied away from the difficult tasks in life, nor did he subject his men to dangers he wasn’t willing to take himself. His troops loved him for that. They admired his dedication and resolve.

It was his life of selfless acts and a love for his command that brought many out to honour him in death as he lay in repose, leading to what would be a well chronicled full military funeral; a fitting tribute to a hero of so many battles.

Once his service records officially become declassified, the history books will be filled with his daring exploits. The dive bombing raids on enemy combatants long before the use of drones, the reconnaissance missions in the mines and caves of far away lands, and his spectacular air battles with birds of a different feather from foreign fowl forces, just to name a few.

But the powers that be will try to downplay the manner in which Sgt. Schlitz died. It’s an embarrassing tale of hubris and bravado heard all too often in the military ranks. The refusal to believe that age, and all that goes with it, catches up to even the bravest military officers.

As the years passed, Sgt. Schlitz didn’t fly as high as he used to, or as fast. And despite mounting pressure for him to take a complete physical he was not the commander he once was. Complicating the issue was his failing eyesight. On his last mission, it ultimately led to his downfall.

In a midnight raid on a hot summer night in a dimly lit warehouse on the outskirts of enemy territory, Sgt. Schlitz flew too low to the ground. He didn’t see the long extension cord, he didn’t hear the whirring symphony, and he didn’t feel the breeze. But sadly, Sgt. Schlitz flew right into a Honeywell Oscillating Turbo Prop Cooling Unit.

But as what’s left of him now lies in state, and as those who reminisce of his triumphs and mourn his passing file by, thanks to redacted government records, few will ever know that Schlitz hit the fan.

That’s the Stuph – the way I see it!
