Who remembers that silly game we played as children where you had imaginary fights between things or people? My siblings, friends and I would routinely make up a pretend, whizzy car for instance in our colour of choice and then have pretend races with each other.

“Yeah, well my car would win over yours because…” [insert own idiotic child logic here]

Hours of fun.

In that spirit, and to honour August as silly season in the news world, our writing prompt this week is:

In a race between an apple and an orange, which one would win and why?

Go on, think back to when you were a child and let your imagination fly.

Happy writing.
