Campaign Platform, a Non-political Political Post

Jenny Matlock
With all the political shenanigans these days, I thought I'd re-post my political stance...

I wrote this one in October of 2010. It's thanks to Jenny Matlock, for her Saturday Centus prompts. This weekly fun activity involves creating a piece in no more than 100 words (not including the prompt). The prompt for this one -- in October, 2010 -- is bolded below. 
Enjoy, and vote for me.

Campaign Platform

In closing, my friends, I will do everything within my power to bring about peace and harmony. My plan for ridding the universe of evil requires just one simple tool: a hammer.

If I had a hammer, my friends, I’d hammer at the meanies.
I’d hammer at their kneezies, and
All over their hands.
I’d hammer at their noses,
I’d hammer at their toes-es.
I’d hammer at their groins,
I’d hammer ‘til they're knowin'
That it’s about love between my brothers and my sisters
a-a-all over this la-a-a-and.
Ooh ooh ooh ooh.

Vote for me. I'm headed for Home Depot to buy a hammer.


  1. I think you'd be much better in charge than anybody else, love the piece you wrote Robyn!

  2. Greetings human, Robyn,

    And this be a non-pawlitical comment.

    You hit the nail on the head with this one.....

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! xx

  3. I would vote for you and with a hub who is a builder I could keep you in hammers for the foreseeable future x

  4. Hammer away, girl! You've got my vote. Even if I live in another country :)

  5. Be sure you get one big enough to do the job.

  6. Get one of those big honkin' sledgehammers.

  7. Now "I" want a hammer! Sure would be great to hammer my woes away! :)

  8. Hah! "Toes-es" is such a cute word, Robyn! I'd love to hear you say it out loud!

  9. You can count on my vote too! Thanks for the smile this morning. :D

  10. You go, Robyn!
    Take out those meanies of all stripes!

  11. This was a ton of fun, Robyn! With all the mess we've been seeing, I'd love a hammer too!!

  12. Maybe that's what these yahoos in office need. A hammer. I say we all chip in and buy them each a hammer!

  13. You already have more people endorsing you than any current politician has thanks to how things have been going.

    Hope you found a really good hammer.

  14. Hmmmm I don't know if a hammer would change things in Washington, but OOOOOO it would makes us ALL feel really good right about now! ;0)
    Blessings, Joanne

  15. Hammers are very handy tools!

    Thanks for making me smile!!! :)

  16. I'd vote for you too. I think you should run on the "Tool Platform". ;)

  17. Robyn,

    Too funny. I put your words to the song. :)

  18. Julie, "Tool Platform" -I love it! Very clever.

    Stop! Hammer Time. Thanks, Anthony.

    Optimistic, do you have a big chainsaw?
    If so, yes.

    Lisa, great. I'll get you on my team.

    Thanks, everyone. I think we've nailed it. Coincidentally, I read that Arnie Schwarzenegger wants to run for president. First, of course, he's going to rewrite the Constitution so he can run (He was born in Austria). But he has confidence he'll do so. I've got my hammer ready.


  19. I don't know whether to laugh or cry about Schwarzenegger running for president. Fortunately, it won't be easy to change the Constitution. Better keep your hammer in its holster.


  20. Get a jackhammer cause some of those peeps are pretty thick.

  21. Lol. I would totally vote for you!!

  22. HA! You got my vote!
    That was good...
