The Pagoda of the Man Dragging Lady Through the Street (A Confucian Delight):Friday Fictioneers

Not every one can solve a mystery – and most people opt for a frontal attack… I did not.

The Pagoda of the Man Dragging Lady Through the Street (A Confucian Delight)

When I was young I thought the Pagoda’s name was Man Dragon Lady. Later, I thought it was an LGBT establishment.

It’s actually a restaurant named after the street sculpture with a challenge similar to “The Sword in the Stone”.

The sculpture’s named: “Every Maybe Has a Wife Called Maybe Not.”

The challenge? Separate the lady from the man, restoring her to dignity, and win a free dinner.

My answer to the puzzler was to sternly inform Mister Hsueh, the owner, that, “It is difficult to pick up a needle with a boxing glove.”

I got my free dinner.

    • It is sad to think that you could think that there is something funny in depression. There is nothing funny about depression. That’s funny that you could think that I could think that. Now I’m depressed. Funny how quickly moods change. And you think that’s a depressing photo? Now that’s funny. Ha. Sometime I will show you a photo of depression. That will really make you laugh.

      Bizarrely yours in laughter and tongue-in-cheek,

  1. in this line: “was a LGBT establishment.” A should be “an” because it has to go with the pronunciation of the “L” and not the “L” itself. say it aloud and you’ll hear it. also, here: “…was to sternly inform, Mister Hsueh, the owner, that, …” no comma needed after “inform.”

    very clever, like an ancient proverb. well done.

Have some fun...
