How Not to Gag the Gabbers

Admit it, we’ve all wanted to just pull out a gag for those incessant talkers.  But there are gentler ways to do this.  Of course, it will depend on WHO is doing the talking. Here are some ideas.


Polish                  Play a Polka and give them a beer

Irish                     Just give them a beer

Italian                  Use that triple strength duct tape for their hands

Kids                     Give each kid a 48 pack of lollipops

Vegan                  Paint spots on yourself and just keep saying MOO..

Man                     (If you’re a woman)-Show cleavage, he'll forget what he's  
                            talking about

Man                     (If you’re another man) Hand them a cheeseburger

Nagging wife        Make believe you’re asleep

Woman                (If you’re a man) Pick your nose and keep farting

Woman                (if you are a woman) Keep picking your teeth, scratching
                             your head and burping

Japanese             Lend them a camera

Jewish                 Throw some money up in the air and run (loose change
                            will do)

Catholic               Take out a Bible and make believe you are a Jehovah’s

Novel Ideas writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Calling all writers, I am looking for ideas on how to silence long winded and extremely loud individuals. Especially those who waffle on and repeat themselves.

Any format is welcome and while I would sugges a 200 word limit, I will no disqualify if the work runs slightly over.

Your work can include new inventions to cure this afflcition or more simple means e.g. duct tape - triple strength.

Just have fun.


Author Notes
Not to be taken seriously. Seriously?
