Carry On Tuesday # 94

Ok, you win! I have to say I was surprised by the response I received to my threat to remove COT from the blogosphere! I had comments here on the site, facebook messages, emails and phone calls begging for mercy! Even so, we only had a few extra contributors last week, but in the circumstances I will consider Carry On Tuesday to have been saved by the bell, hence this week’s prompt! Please COT fans, don’t let me down!
Your prompt forTuesday March 1st
This week, an expression much used today, even though it’s origin is unclear.
Saved the bell
Use it within your poem or prose then leave the url of your piece with Mister Linky. A comment would also be appreciated

  1. That was a fun prompt which inspired a limerick about boxing and a rant about Melissa Leo and The Fighter. Thanks! Fighting Mad

  2. My kind of bell was a bit stretched! Free association!

  3. My bell was a thing of annoyance, but became a precious memory :-). Thanks for giving Carry On a 2nd chance - I truly don't want you to shut it down! It makes those rusty wheels in my brain turn :-)

  4. ARGH!
    I couldn't come up with a thing... and then my publisher shot me an email. I posted the result, not a poem, but a plea for poetry.

  5. Am glad COT is saved by the bell...i have been running from pillar to post to keep up.Thanks!
