Flash 55 – Where the Dead Bodies Are

04  I live in lovely New Jersey. What exit? Exit 5.

The state motto is “The Garden State” but there are few gardens or farms left. The famous Jersey tomatoes are grown in hot houses.

We have chemical and drug companies, the pine barrens and the Jersey Devil. 

Oh, and swamps where we bury the bodies.
Write a story in exactly 55 words.



  1. Hey, do you know Stephanie Plum! ;)

  2. LOL...too funny. Ever buried one there yourself? LOL :) Have a great Friday :)

    Vanessa...I can't tell you how happy I am that your post and comments are are so easily accessed again.
    I LOVE your writing!
    Excellent 55 My Dear.
    Thanks for playing so darkly today, thanks for visiting, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...galen

  4. Sounds... lovely? ;)

    It's been a while - hope you're doing well!!

  5. I won't say anything negative about New Jersey, esepcially since you've pretty much covered it.

    Interesting 55.
    (Who knew NJ has swamps?)

  6. Swamps? And here I thought all the bodies went into the ocean.

  7. Hi Nessa. I need to remember this about exit 5.

  8. Swamp Body Gardens. Now there's a new concept. Great 55. Thanks for stopping in to read mine.

  9. I know now why our Houston cement plant sends so many sacks full up to New Jersey.
    Tie one onto a leg and burial is quickly done. The Hudson R. is filling up I hear.

  10. Any vacancies? There is a need for these swamps!

  11. Oh. My. ... you make New Jersey sound... sO appealing! I can't wait to visit! ... I'll work on that... ROFL!

  12. Love your conclusion. Mine starts...I live in the mountains of Virginia. We grow Christmas trees... to tired to write the rest.

  13. LOL. Apparently we need more swamps than tomatoes. Great Flash 55.

  14. Swamps near us too - I hope without bodies...
    Great 55!
