31 Mad

Every year without fail, Kowalski dropped off the face of the earth for three days. Not even Skipper knew where he went and he'd known Kowalski the longest. It wasn't until Skipper's contact in the criminal underworld let them know that there was a three-day-long mad scientist convention going on. The first day coincided exactly with the day Kowalski disappeared.

32 Power

It wasn't well known, but Kowalski had power in the scientific community – specifically  that of the mad science community. Coming from an old family had its benefits. However, having to both open and close the convention every year while disappearing from his teammates was getting old. But he met with scientists from all walks of life – mad or not – once a year, and there wasn't a thing in the world that would prevent it from occurring.

33 Right

Skipper dodged the fist thrown at his face. He remembered exactly what happened the last time he let Private land a right hook.

34 Lawyer

Certified lawyer, Maurice was not. But when you were continuously dealing with the likes of King Julien, you were fluent in legalese and learned all the loopholes fairly quick.

35 Fin

"Saw a fin, do do do-do doodoo. Saw a fin, do do do-do doodoo. Saw a fin, do do do-do doodoo. Saw a fin. Swam real fast, do do do-do doodoo. Swam real fast, do do do-do doodoo. Swam real fast, do do do-do doodoo. Swam real fast. Shark attack!" Upon saying 'shark attack!', Private promptly jumped on top of Rico and held on for dear life. Rico could have sworn that the young man didn't have anything even remotely caffeine related for days. So why the strange little chant and jump?

36 Ravioli

"Where's the blasted can opener?"  Private rummaged through the cabinets trying to find the object.

"Private? What are you doing?" Skipper asked, warily standing in the door of the kitchen.

"I wanted ravioli but the can opener is missing!" Skipper only sighed as he pointed at the can opener on the counter. "Oh. Thank you!"

37 Lead

Twirling the lead pipe in his fingers, Rico just stood ominously, glaring at the scrawny young men blocking his way to his teammates. When one of the men got too close, Rico stopped twirling and hit him with the pipe. "Let me through," he rasped, and they parted. Stepping to his teammates, he noted Private's faint bobble back and forth and Kowalski's lack of movement and heard Skipper walking toward them all. "Found them."

"Good job, Rico. Good job."

38 Prairie

Private twitched – and 'twitched' is the only good word for what he did. It was the only thing that conveyed his horror at the scene before him – acres and acres of nothing but wheat fields and corn rows. "I'm sitting in the car and if you talk to me, I will bite you," he said, slamming the door to the car shut behind him.

Skipper just asked what his problem was and Kowalski replied that it was because he was "British, of the English variety, specifically from the area around London. They don't have prairies like we do."

39 Beetle

It was crawling across him, closely followed by one of its disgusting friends. Private suppressed a squeal as a third and soon forth beetle walked on him. It couldn't be soon enough that the beetles stopped walking on him and he quickly breathed in and made a mad dash towards the bathroom to either throw up or scrub his skin until it was raw.

40 Bomb

Skipper held point, his back to the team, who were frantically trying to defuse a bomb that was threatening the whole city.

Yet another day on the job.
Fourth set of ten prompts I used in this writing.
*cough* Well. This is embarrassing, isn't it? Yeah, I know. Human!Penguins of Madagascar. I can't get enough, I s'pose. Additional Note: Their group is the “Penguins” and part of an organization run by the UN. They can still get banned from countries though. *coughDenmarkcough*

Power follows Mad.

This [link] is the closest one to the one that Private's doing in "fin." What he's actually chanting is the one we use for band competitions.

So, I've finally numbered everything. it's a pretty good idea, now that I think about it.

This one also contains slight slash. Yup. Sorry if that doesn't float your boat, but I don't particularly care. Don't come crying to me, because I did warn you.
Besides, it's only really visible if you cross your eyes and squint.

I never got that Fin prompt until I click the link. Actually.....I still don't get it. :confused:
Meh :shrug: It's still funny :XD:
Well, in band, we'd have cheers at the contests, and one of them was this shark one. And one of the lines was "Saw a fin" and when 'Fin' popped up on my random word generator, I had to use it.

Ah right.
You have a random word generator?
Have I mentioned yet how GREAT I think these, and you, are? I think I have not....So I shall now.

These writing moments, prompt things...ARE FANTASTIC!!!
Thank you! Thank you so much! It just makes me smile to know that people really like these.
