55-Friday Flash Fiction #2

limo[10]‘I’m not sure. It’s kinda tacky to do it like this.’
‘What’s wrong with a stretch limo, you can fit the band in.’
‘Well…do we have to have the topless driver, she’s a wobbler.’
‘Duh-ta-duh, it’s for Duke’.
‘But do you think that Duke would want his funeral this way?’
Hello. He was a biker!’
