I Need that Lawn Ornament

I've got this morbidly funny post that might or might not make it into tomorrow night's hopper, depending on how I feel. I'm still waffling... I'm laughing, but nobody else around me is. A lot of eye rolling.

Some horror.

But I still might post it.

However, from my dear friend Teresa over at Technicalities, I have the following post I'm linking... she sent it to me to make me laugh.

Where do I start?

1) read it
2) I laughed
3) I'd so own a 5 foot chicken
4) my sister or my gf, PFB, would so push me into it like Laura
5) or my sister would own the chicken because I'd push HER into it
6) I so want that chicken...

I just can't quit laughing. The thing is, there are some friends of mine who think I'm funny. I've been known to make some people laugh sometimes.

This girl makes me look humorless.

I can't believe I've not read this blogger. Now SHE is hilarious. Good grief.

The chicken at the door... I swear I start laughing just thinking about that picture. OMG.

Oh to have 1/8th her talent with a story.

Oh yeah - mission accomplished. Laughter is what gets us through the hard times. :-)

OMG, you've totally got to read EVERY crumb she writes. The Bloggess is amazing. If you haven't already read about it, last Christmas one of her crazy insane posts went viral, and she ended up accidentally raising tens of thousands of dollars for those in need that year. It was incredible how it unfolded. (You can probably find that in her archives.)

And hey, you can even get a tiny desk top sculpture of that metal chicken in her online store. I am sooo getting one!

I love love love The Bloggess!

Pammy- I think my husband is a little worried that Beyonce's twin is going to show up at our house one day. I'd have it peering in a window and wait to see how long it took him to notice. We'd probably get a call from the HOA first before he noticed, 'Dr. L, you have a five foot chicken in your yard, peering in your bedroom window. Lawn ornaments of that size are against HOA rules..."

Teresa- Oh you so accomplished it. I just can't quit laughing. She is really really funny.

DDP- I saw about small Beyonce and the teaching tool! She cracked me up. I'll have to go through her archives and look for those posts.

As for my husband, I had him read it last night. Being married for coming up on 20 years and being married to a nut (he does a lot of eye rolling) he said to me, "It is funny, but... if he'd just let her BUY the towels, something they probably really needed, he wouldn't have to contend with a five foot chicken now."

Ever so logical. He knows I want a five foot chicken...

Neat bird, if a bit overpriced, like all works of art. But Beyonce is a midget compared to some birds I saw on the "Enchanted Highway" in North Dakota. The largest one is 40X70 feet:

Check out the other sculptures too, they're awesome.

When Victor opened the door on the thing I just about rolled out of my chair laughing!

Good stuff!

I just recently found the Bloggess, too. I've sent that chicken post to several friends, and they laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh. My husband threatened me to never leave a chicken at the front door...therefore, I'm looking at a local place here that does that stuff...maybe a gorilla...or the manatee is kind of sweet...
