egrets this 240Honey, you can stop cooking, it looks like the Hendersons can’t make our dinner party after all!

Damn those people! How do you know?

Look out in the garden, they sent their egrets!

Some friends they turned out to be, huh?

Yeah, with friends like those, who needs anemones?

Don’t stop cooking, we still need donuts. Do it for all of the starving models.

An egret stands among anemone flowers
Does it know that there will be showers
It starts to glower
When it spots the lawn mower
Now instead you would have to call the gardner…

Egret…egret….bird,
Bird, biiiiird.. bird standing in garden…
Garden, garden has flowers….flowers…
Don’t walk on the flowers…
Don’t…
Do not…do not walk on the flowers…

Donut…doughnut…
Doughnut!

This blog means we should get some doughnuts! And according to the timer we have only 10 minutes before they are done! Quick everyone, GET TO THE CHOPPA!

Inspirational thought for the day:

Living a life with no egrets is MUCH better than living a life with no doughnuts.

@BG … Clairvoyant. Is that the same thing as hungry?

@ify … nice stream of consciousness, flying doughnut logic. Flying doughnuts? Now, there’s an idea. FOOD FIGHT!

Dare I say it? This post is for the birds.

@justCAM, thanks. The only problem is every time I channel my inner Jeff Goldblum the end result is always doughnuts. Every time. Curious isn’t it?

Where is the forest part of the forest the egret is walking in?

The egret walks in the forest..
Forests…forests have trees…
Trees… trees have leaves…
Leaves…leaves fall from the tree onto the ground..
On the ground…deer walk on the ground in the forest..
Deer…a female deer is a doe..
Doe…doe…dough…
Dough…doughnuts are made of dough…
Doughnuts, this blog is about doughnuts!

Everyone, doughnuts in the conference room! Quick GET TO THE CHOPPA!

The headline cracked me up, Mr B. One problem: those aren’t anemones. They’s poppies. (Relax, Shra, I’m not teachin’, just fixin’, and usin’ bad grammar to boot, so it don’t count.)

That would be pretty ironic, getting zapped for teaching us stuff that turned out to be wrong…

BG … You do irony? I’ve got some shirts that need pressing.

Egrets, I’ve had a few.

They’re good crispy fried with barbecue sauce.

I like poppies… for a special reason.. :)

Monet? Is that Count de Monet, Spin?

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive
 

Or crush them, and mix them with other sprinkles… they would serve the ultimate purpose of medi-doughnuts…

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

thanks, Spin. Now I hear Burt Lahr’s voice singing “when egrets walk thru the forest” :)

I wish I was awake enough to be funny. I’m just quietly impressed by Mr Zvulun’s beautiful photo.
