Some Puppy and Turkeyisms

It has been over a year but I have decided to contribute some fragments at the Half Past Kissing Time blog feature called Friday Fragments.

Mommy's Idea

Last week I was doing puppy's reading program with her. She was reading a story about a tiger and I notices she was covering her ears. I asked her why she was covering her ears, and she said, "The scary part of the story is coming up and I don't want to hear it."

The other day she told me a joke she made up. It is actually a variation of a joke most of you should already know. She gave it a nice twist, and really stuck the dismount. So when our co-op newsletter was looking for submissions, I entered it for her.

Here is what my published puppy's joke looks like:

Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Nobody.
Nobody who?
Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Nobody.
Nobody who?
Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Nobody.
Nobody who?
Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Orange.
Orange who?
Orange you glad nobody said banana?

The very same newsletter is having a writing contest. They are giving away a turkey to the writer of the winning paragraph written from the POV of a turkey explaining why or why not the Turkey should be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.

Bunny's response:

Hello. I'm Tom the Turkey. I want to be eaten because I am very plump and juicy, My feathers are able to be plucked out real fast. I bet I'd be real yummy! If you eat me for Thanksgiving, I wont bother you anymore.

Spider Droid's entry:
Pardon Me!
Dear Mr. President,
Hi. My name is Bill. How are you? You should be fine. Nobody is going to eat you at the end of the month. I am a turkey. Turkeys are not thankful for Thanksgiving. I need your help. Please pardon me!!!!!!! Mr. President you are my only hope of not facing my greatest fear, having my wishbone broken.


Puppy's two cents:

Hello. My name is turkey L3000. The first robot turkey. I do not want to be eaten because I have too many feathers around my robot body.
Those are all the fractured fragments I have for you today. This is a blog hop so hop on over to the other participating blogs.

  1. I can remember reading to my children, and they had great memories. When I got to a certain part, they would tell me what happened.

    Your daughter has ingenuity making up her own jokes. Sounds like a creative mind there.

  2. So glad you are joining FF. I am a homeschool parent as well.
    Love the joke; once my 2 yr old attempted that joke while we were all attempting our versions of it hers went like this:

    2 yr old~ Knock Knock
    Me~ Who's there?
    2 yr old~ Banana
    Me~ Banana who?
    2yr old~ Knock Knock
    Me~ Who's there?
    2yr old~ Apple...

    That was the joke, Cute for a 2 year old, huh? She gave it a go anyhow! A+ for effort right!?

    Puppy sounds adorable and bright...

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Those were so cute! And I love the knock-knock joke! I told it to my husband. He groaned a little, but he chuckled at it too. Maybe I need better delivery. :o)

    Peace and Laughter!
