For Those Who Could Use A Smile Or Laugh Today

chicken lineup

The cops tried their best but couldn’t get a peep out of the perp…

Then they tried to get his collaborators to talk, but they were too chicken.

The poor chick had no chance because he’d been cooped up in a hen-pecked household, and his parents could barely scratch up enough chicken feed for their feathered family.

He wasn’t a good egg.

Brenda Salveson contacted me to say she took the clever photo. Thank you, Brenda! I’m to blame for the tag lines.

      Thank you, Rad. When one of our sons was young he stuck a toothpick into each of two Peeps and put them into the microwave facing each other to joust. They’s blow uplike balloons until the toothpick of one popped the other.. It was fun until he had to clean up the mess–and that was very un-fun. A sticky gooey mess.

        I should have asked if it was okay to reblog your page before doing so. I appreciate your gracious reply to my reblogging post!

        • russtowne says:

          No worries, lovemy6hens. As I understand blogging etiquette–and I’m no expert–if a blog has a “Reblog” icon showing, other bloggers are welcome to reblog content (with full attribution to the creator of the content and to the blog from which the post was reblogged.) As your reblog did those things, you followed etiquette as I understand it and have no need to apologize. In fact, I’m grateful for the reblogs. Thank you.
