Egg-stroardinary Experience

After pretty much begging some folks to leave comments on my blog (I'm not joking), you wouldn't believe what a shock it was to receive comment after comment on my Sunday, September 24 post titled, "Sunday Night Out in U-City." And, they are hilarious! Cow pun after cow pun started rolling in. I could not believe it when 40....50....60....70 posts were made, and I have laughed so hard this past week. I knew we were nearing the end of the trail soon (even though I suspect a few more will still be submitted in the near future), and that seemed pretty sad to me. So, it was great to receive the following comment from a friend:

Prairie Girl: I have come to realize that there are too many sacred cows when it comes to puns and so I am wondering why you haven't "spread your wings" and moved on to greener pastures, like chicken talk, for example. I decided to ask you this on my blog. Are you feeling buffaloed or just chicken?

And the comments kept rolling in.

Piano Man: It really sticks in my craw that Prairie Girl has taken so long to get involved. Are you trying to shake things up when it looked like we had come up dry?

Sandy-san: Sooo... Is this a shake and bake? Are we scrambling chicken puns into this dialogue? Just egging you on! =D

To which I replied: I think we should poultry people, at the very least, to determine if this is a good idea. I wouldn't want to fowl anything up.














The truth is we don't need to poll anyone. I know this wacky group wants to continue, so we'll start a new thread of egg, chicken, poultry (and whatever else is related) comments right here.

Thanks, friends and family, for the fun. I've heard from so many - even non-participants - who have truly loved reading the cow posts....and most admit that they read them over and over and keep laughing (or groaning), even a few times a day. I do that too! Let the fun continue!!!!

I wanted to get a leg up on everyone, so I thought I would start off the comments.

Sandy-san said...

It's sad that we had to scratch the cow posts. Yes, this chick could hardly get any work done yesterday, because I kept refreshing the blog! I laughed until I was frying!

Sandy-san said...

Lydia, if you think there were some rotten eggs in the cow poke, I bet you'll love the range of puns that will come to roost here!

strem said...

I can't help from checking back here often because I want to keep abreast of the situation.

strem said...

I've been feeling cooped up all day long and keep staring at the time on the cluck. I hope my friend, Kathy, gizzard-uplicating done quickly so we can head to lunch.

prairie girl said...

Well, as far as I am concerned, this is turning into a grav-y situtation.

strem said...

I know...the grav-y situation makes me want to duck and run. But, if the puns get better and better, a l'orange another entry so we can continue with more quacky puns on another subject.

Piano Man said...

So far, there has been very little to crow about in this new subject. We'll see what happens. By the way, I hope no one does any poaching from other sites. I am not trying to come off as being hard-boiled or anything.

strem said...

One should remember to strut their stuff without coming off as too cocky. I am exciting to see waddle show up here in the next few days.

mikee said...

This doodle-doo anything to prove his punniness! Liver die, I'm here til the last quarter.

mikee said...

I feel like you're bouillion me around with all of this pun-ishment. How bad is this gon-nugget? Sorry, that was a cheep shot.

strem said...

Beak-areful, fellow bloggers. When I was combing through the earlier posts, I realized I typed waddle instead of wattle (even though both might apply.) I guess that's what I get for just wingin' it. I'll try not to brood over this for too long.

Piano Man said...

I had a comment I was going to write,but decided to pullet before I posted it. I wouldn't cross the road for that one.

Sandy-san said...

I'm not trying to be a mother hen, however I believe that a profoul is necessary for everyone who posts on here... Feather you like it or not. If you choose not to, don't be souprised if we roast you over the coals!

=)

Sandy-san said...

Aww... Grandma is asleep! *shhh!*

=D (no pun here... she is just sweet!)

Piano Man said...

We are going to be in a peck of trouble if we start grilling people about their puns.

Piano Man said...

I am thinking about printing these out and putting them in an album-en my bookcase

Piano Man said...

So far there has not been a peep out of Mom on this subject.

Aaron said...

Hey Mi-shell, I wanted to beat you guys to some of these puns. Omelette you guys handle it from here.

strem said...

Some puns are a dime a dozen. But, I prefer the hard over easy ones. That probably has a lot to do with my father's cochin. (However, you might hear me deny that thrice.)

strem said...

My mother has also been influential. The quiche-e stressed was to resist stuffing my conversations with cornish puns. Beyond that, she gave me free range in how I yolked with others.

strem said...

Did you hear that Broadway has hatched a plan persuading theatre goers to flock to strange revivals, like Bantam of the Opera? That mayo may not be true. Personally, I don't think there's a Colonel of truth to that rumor.

mikee said...

We're all geeks!

strem said...

Maybe everyone is just nestled into bed already, but it seems like most of us are laying low lately. Straighten up, and fly right! I don't want to be millet-ant about this, but I've started carton around my computer so I can check in at anytime.

Piano Man said...

I also like to take a take a gander at them whenever I can.

Piano Man said...

I don't want to gobble up the good ones before others have a chance. This is a golden opportunity and make your comments.

Piano Man said...

Mom just called me a turkey for spending so much time on these.

Piano Man said...

I think it is good that these comments are all time coded. There should be no squabbling over which came first.

Piano Man said...

I hope no one thinks I am henpecked because I keep making comments for Mom.

Piano Man said...

Uncle Dick says that a person almost needs to get up with the chickens just to get their comments in.

strem said...

I don't want to cook your goose. But, baste on the puns we've been stuffing on here, the readers of this blog are bound to think most of us are a little loosey-goosey.

strem said...

Even though we've dis-custard-ently the joys of puns, I th-incubate me to post dumb ones sometimes....many of which are like boo-meringues. They keep coming back to haunt me.

strem said...

On Friday, I flu down the mini-mart because I was out of avian water and Crest. If I would have been thinking ahead, some drinks and snacks for the road are what I would have botulism George.

(For my friends, Liz & George who moved to K.C. this weekend. We miss you!)

(And, yes...I'm hearing everyone's groans through the computer!)

Sandy-san said...

Those were eggcellent! *applause* =D

I am having trouble combining targeted words with my half-baked puns. Thigh don't want you to think I just backed-off and left cold-turkey.

Sandy-san said...

*waving*
Thigh Liz!
Thigh George!

=D

mikee said...

Listen to what I'm talon ya. This blog is just a broth-el of bad puns. I don't know Liz and George, but they're probably happy to be in K(F)C...just to get out of the pox-imity of this strand. Did you roast them before they left?

Piano Man said...

I don't want to grouse, but why have the puns slowed down so much.

strem said...

I think it's now time to move into the areas of other game fowl. Does anyone want to be the guinea pig? (Did I just get egg on my face?)

Migrate puns make some laugh so hard....while they make others gaggle.

strem said...

Still others just get a glazed look in their eyes.

Piano Man said...

Of all the subjects that we've covered, I want to pull out my heron this one.

Piano Man said...

Regarding George and Liz, I know we all have our egrets that they have moved, but we wish them the best.

Piano Man said...

I am not quite old enough to pull out my blue heron these.

Sandy-san said...

ROTF!!! *thumbs up*

mikee said...

Wow. This is really going south, isn't it?

mikee said...

But I guess I'll just have to swallow my pride and swan dive into it!

Piano Man said...

I heard of another strange Broadway adaptation titled "A Rhode Island Red in King Arthur's Court."

There were so many standing ovations during the show that people had to crane their necks to get a better view of the stage.

strem said...

Hey birdbrains! I can't believe you had the gull to start expanding the category. But, birds of a feather flock together...so we'll swoop to your level. On with the bird puns!

strem said...

Because I give a hoot, owl try to post throughout the day. But, don't let me horn in on any comments you plan to make.

strem said...

Bad puns seems to be our group's cygnet-ure, so whoop it up! (Honk if you're a punny person!)

strem said...

I almost dove right in to make comments yesterday, but I just couldn't get any peace about it. I know these jokes are coo, but I don't want to be pigeon-holed as only the "pun blogger."

Piano Man said...

We shouldn't have to be hit on the noggin to know that it is alright to post these at any time. So, hens forth, don't hold back. Just go ahead and post them or someone just might ring your neck.

strem said...

Watch out for decoys who try to lure you into sharing your puns before you post them. They might be robin them from you. They drake through my idea lists if they could, but I warn, "No peking!" They're cuckoo. A pun addiction can be a really serious mallard-y.

Piano Man said...

According to my friend, Bob White, quailing away from anything can be a bad thing. You need to be spurred on, even if it is on a lark.

strem said...

Folks are still raven about the puns list, and it seems the buzzard 'round blog world. But, lately, we have had many auk-ward silences.

strem said...

So, if you can sparrow moment, swallow your pride and take your tern. Don't worry about looking like a dodo! Maybe the experience would be less wren-ching if you bounced ideas off someone else. Sometimes, when an one person can't come up with something, toucan!

strem said...

The kiwi need to stress is to not snipe others' comments. I admit it. Myna are often loon-y, but we need to ensure that everyone will have a pheasant experience. So, please, no mocking!

Piano Man said...

I don't want to hear of any Benedict Arnolds out there sharing their puns on other sites especially with the Hollandaise right around the corner.

That kind of behavior makes me want to go somewhere and eat a whole package of Orioles or some magpies.

Sandy-san said...

Shoot, I'd love to squawk out and write down some great puns, however I've had some pretty embarrassing brain-larks lately, so please excuse me. I am hoping that another string of goose-y puns will come to me! Until then, let's all be good sports and braise the glass for all of these great bunnies! <<--My lame attempt to add other wildlife into the mix!

Cheers! =)

Sandy-san said...

In my lifetime, when brooding from the stress, I've been known to down whole packages of Orioles, (moo!), so I totally understand Piano-man!

Good one! xD

Piano Man said...

Don't compliment me too much on these or I will start puffin out my chest with pride. There is no caw for any exaltation.

I think we have really started murdering this category.

strem said...

Piano Man, maybe we can t-emu up with mikee to write a musical parrot-y of these jokes. When you finch it, I'm sure it will be so catchy that everyone will be humming along. Sandy-san is quite a thrush. I will provide my best warble in any part you assign to me.

strem said...

This is a starling situation, but macaw is not acting right! So, I'm heading out to the mechanic's shop right now so that I'll still be able to leave tomorrow morning.

Just wanted to let you know that I won't be able to check in for a few days because I will be going on a short vacation. I hope to see many bird puns when I return.

mikee said...

Thanks to this blog, I'm going stark raven mad. Thinking about puns all day , when normally I don't give a hoot. I didn't realize I was so flappable.

Sandy-san said...

I'm taking a gander that I know who you are, Mikee! (Sacred Harp - yes?) *waving*

Yep, my goose is cooked* between thinking about shaped notes and puns, I just want to claw my brains out. I'm hooked!

Footnote: *Sorry that I am reusing some of these puns!

Piano Man said...

One would need to have an eagle eye to know what had been used before and what hadn't. No big whoop if you do use one again now and then.

Piano Man said...

I sure hope I didn't ruffle anyone's feathers with that last comment.

strem said...

I, too, used to watch the list like a hawk so that I wouldn't duplicate. But, I don't want to penguin-to a corner. So, for the most partridge-idity should be abandoned. I wouldn't want anyone to feel ostrich-ized after reusing a pun.

Did anyone notice that Strem misspelled the title of this post? 70+ comments by a bunch of wordsmiths and punsters, and none of us caught it. Then again, maybe we were all too chicken to speak up.

Sandy-san said...

I had seen that extra "o" but it didn't registeer. Oops, wrong blog.

Egg-stroardinary...

*shrugging shoulders* Maybe she was roaring to add cat-types into the puns. I could be dropping hints...

Sandy-san said...

*running and hiding*

strem said...

I promise you this was a typo. Guess my hunting and pecking (and proofreading) just isn't as good as it used to be.

I won't change the title now - as this string of comments then won't make sense.

Piano Man said...

I figured the chickens would, sooner or later, come home to roost regarding that title.

Piano Man said...

I agree with mikee about finding errors. We should not just bury our heads in the sand when it comes to exposing mistakes.

What do you suggest for punishment? Twenty lashes with a wet noodle?
