Want the real down low on Robin and his gang? Little John reveals his “Tell All” story to his kids, and we get to listen in on some insider trading secrets …
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s humor (funny, it was humor the week before, and the week before that, and the week before…)
Little John Tells His Kids the Real Story of Robin and his Merry Men
Daddy, what was Robin’s real name?
It was Mary. We were Mary’s Men. It sounded stupid, so we changed it to Merry Men.
And Robin’s name?
We formed a company called “We Be Robbin’” to defraud the bad Sheriff of Nottingham. Everyone asked Mary if he be robbin’. He’d reply, “Yes, I be robbin’” – and the name stuck.
And the money?
Robin would burn the money. I said to give it to the poor.
And that’s how we got our castle, swimming pool/moat, gold cart, and archery court?
No, through offshore subsidiaries, cash repatriation, and inversions. Oh, and money donations to our super PAC (Paupers After Cash).
