Interruption of Service

Dear Sir:

The Department for Internal Moral Upkeep (DIMU) regrets to inform you of a partial system failure which has resulted in an interruption of service. As a result, you may experience lapses of judgment including, but not limited to, lust, greed, apathy, wrath, pride, and envy.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

FFF-55 Vol. XXV. Write a story with exactly 55 words. Go see G-Man.


  1. that what happened? Just a partial system failure? When will service be restored? Will it happen in time?

    Very clever 55. Even the acronym works.

  2. haha...maybe if you are a politician....smiles.

  3. hahaha! that's very clever. i love it. and the acronym reads to me as dim u=dim you. lights have dimmed on morality.

  4. ...And thank you for your cooperation!
    (You forgot Gluttony)
    Loved your 55 Linc
    As always, well thought out.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  5. So *that's* the problem with this place. I was wondering. Somehow I don't think the DIMU system analyst folks are going to get around to a fix in my lifetime. Enjoyed your bureaucratically flavored 55.

  6. Too weird. The phone system at my work went out as I began reading this. AAAaaaaa. You're scaring me.

  7. Wow, this has a real jolt to spite of the interruption in service! Very thought-provoking 55. Thanks.

  8. Now I know who to put the blame on - DIMU!!
