The bird needs a snappy comeback.
Also looks like he could swallow you.
“Well, it’s HIS fault for what I did on top of his shell when he startled me. I’M not wiping it off.”
In the verbal sense of the word, certainly.
At least not literally.
Especially early in the morning. Later in the day, he’s a little more calm.
Try later in the a.m. He’ll have walked a couple of feet and feel better.
Reminds me of the scene in “We Were Soldiers” where the poor private tells the sergeant major “Good Morning”…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwATvALiQ_8
Then you can sit your butt there and not plan to go anywhere.
it’s almost over??
Bird better watch it’s legs around the snapper.
He sounds very grouchy in the morning, but his bark’s worse than his bite?
“Good morning” is not a prediction, it’s a suggestion. Go snap yourself, sourpuss.
As a kid, I had two interesting encounters with snapping turtles:
1) I went swimming in a deep pool in the local creek, but not the pool usually used for swimming. Upon coming out, I saw a snapping turtle in the water… and it was as big as I was. Lucky for me, it wasn’t aggressive, at least not then.
2) After a big rain, I went out to look at the flooded back field, which was about 6" (15 cm) deep in water. My mother was concerned when I returned carrying a small (8" shell) snapping turtle (held by the tail, at arm’s length), especially since I was in bare feet. 8^o That was one of the few “pets” that she wouldn’t let me keep.
This one actually made me laugh out loud.
Birdie landed on the wrong shell…
Ironic that his full name is Edward William Snap…
Some people are like that on here, too.
When I walk into work, I say “’Morning.” When some says “What’s good about it?” I say “I didn’t SAY GOOD morning!”
Better get your eyes checked. Pilots landing at the wrong airport is a big No No……
I’d like to see birdie meet up with these “turtles”…
This will solve the problem:
2 pounds turtle meat, diced (may substitute 2 pounds beef heart, minced in a food processor)
1 1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cups onion, diced
3/4 cups celery, diced
3/4 cups carrot, diced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 cups beef stock
1/3 cup flour
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon Worcester sauce
1/3 cup sherry
Fresh parsley, chopped as garnish
In a large pot, melt 1/2 cup butter then add the turtle meat. Saute to brown, and season with salt and pepper. Cook the meat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Add the celery, onion, carrots, and garlic, and season with the paprika and oregano. Sauté the vegetables for another 15 to 20 minutes.Add the beef stock, and bring to a boil. Cook the for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small pan, melt the remaining butter and whisk in the flour to form a roux. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring to make a pale roux. Set aside to cool.
Once the roux has cooled, slowly add a cup of the soup to the roux, stirring well to combine. Then, whisk the lightened roux back into the remaining soup. Simmer for 20 minutes to thicken to a gravy consistency.
Add the Worcester sauce and sherry (or serve sherry on the side to add to taste). Garnish with parsley.
Have a Motrin?
Guess he hasn’t had his coffee yet.
Celebrate every morning you wake up.
Panel #2. LOVE IT.
What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?
It’s always a bad idea to get your biology information from B. C. but snapping turtles can’t withdraw into their shells completely. That’s one reason why they are so aggressive.
Eddie is really looking forward to the evolution of the coffee bean.
Some are only happy when they are unhappy.
