Jack the Juggler and Jill the Japanese Jujitsu Judge


The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
2013


J Jack the Juggler and Jill the Japanese Jujitsu Judge

Jack the Juggler and Jill the Japanese Jujitsu Judge ascended the jagged Jurassic rocks of the hill to fetch a rather nice Jug of juice in the hot June sun. But in a jest where Jack was jumping about pretending to be Jackdaw, Jill lost concentration, a result all his jiggling, and slipped jabbing her head and breaking her Jujitsu Judges crown and jolly cross she was too.  Then Just as Jack the Juggler jumped to Jill’s aid like a jingling Jinghis Khan, Jack too then slipped and fell muttering nonsense like a jailed jabberwocky.

Well that is what Jill told the Judge, but Jack insisted he was not pretending to be a jackdaw but had been jolted towards Jill by a jealous juvenile jellyfish. The Jury at first thought jack was joking, but his Jabbering Jacobean defence lawyer called James, shouted “Juxtaposition” at the jury who jumped and jostled uncomfortably. “This is no Joke” said James the Jacobean lawyer; “my client Jack the juggler may be jailed and all because of the Juxtaposition by a jellyfish”. . . . .  “Jack”; insisted the Jacobean lawyer, “was duped and fell first and was in fact wearing Jill’s Japanese Jujitsu Judges crown in a jaunty fashion”.



“The judicial justice system works like a Javanese Jester in the jungle” said the Jacobean Lawyer confusing the Jury even more, “Jack the Juggler is innocent”.

After the trial Jill the Jujitsu Judge said to the massed jostling journalists that the whole trial was a blatant case of Jingoism and now plans to Jet off to Japan to see her old Janitor from her Junior school and Marry Jilted John.

The Local Journalist from the local paper The Journal summarized the case in the following way in his weekly column:-

JACK and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a JUG of water.
JACK fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after. . . . . . . . . . . Jack walks Free.


                                                                                                                    
The rest of course as they say is history. . . .

    1. They do say the old tales are the best. Well obviously not in the butcher who likes to say the new tails are the best.

  2. Hmmmm, Jack and Jill? Where have I heard those names before.
    Love the spin on an old classic, as did the little man. He always drops everything he's doing, when I yell out the title of the day's post...which is probably not a good thing, as today he was carrying me up a cup of tea. :)

    1. I think I should make Master Lil man an honourable member of RATs as he is a trusty follower of the blog and I am sure he would like that. Tell him it is not compulsory and he can scream and say AAAAauuuuuuGGGGGHHHHH a lot

  3. I was guessing what your J Day story might be, and guessed "Jack and Jean Jock".

    1. My favorite subatomic position is justly at a juxtapositron.

    2. I did write a reply Mr ESB but somehow I appear to have lost it, rather ironically this might just be a classic case of juxtaposition. And I cant remember what I said now but I bet it was very important.

      Still it is K tomorrow, as it happens I had a terrible mental block with K and it sort of does not work, such is the alphabet.

    3. I am sitting at the diner right now and Jesus asked how you are doing and I told him you were doing the ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXY and Z writing thingie for the month. He thinks you should try to write a child wrens book using that technique. I did not know that the children of tiny little birds could even read. It may be a limited market, but then again you might be the first one to do it. Ron The Pioneer.

    4. I would need time to think of a wren friendly read, and I am concerned Ron might write it before I do.

      I hope Jesus is OK as he can be considering what happened say hello from me as and when you next see him.

    1. I am starting to miss comments now I knew there was a snag with having more than one person following my blog.

      As for the background it is a home brew affair, and I am happy to let anyone use it who wishes too. Unlike my brilliant words of wisdom where I am holding out for milllions
