Writing 101: Funny

#writing101

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Retrospectively Funny.”

I had a hard time picking a word.

The first word I thought I’d write about was synchronicity.

“the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.” Like picking the word and seeing the prompt from yesterday was the same thing I picked. That’s amore!

Also, my assignment was to write a list and I had been meaning to write this reading list for our legislators.

Well that worked out great.

The second word that came to mind was the word “grounded.” Something I aspire to be every day and when I’m not you’ll find me out there seeking assistance. Boring.

Funny.

I like.

So a funny thing happened this week.

Mostly everything I post on Facebook is important information about the environment. I do try to find funny memes. Funny memes and photos of my cat, dog and my grandson get the most likes. I could work on a piece for two days but everyone loves MeMe, Barney and Ethan.

So sometime over the weekend I posted this funny meme.

Everyone could relate and I got some hysterical comments. If you know my circle of friends the conversation turned political and we were all cracking up.

Then later on I was watching “Flow: For the love of water” documentary and I went to google some about the fish in the Seine River changing sex.

I came across this article:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/testicleeating-fish-the-pacu-found-in-paris-with-fears-it-could-be-coming-to-the-uk-8798118.html

Go look at the photo. This fish with these freakish human teeth.

Testicle-eating fish, the Pacu, found in Paris with fears it could be coming to the UK

So I tweet the article to my self. I also remember my fellow blogger and future Martin County Commissioner Jacqui wrote an article about these guys being in Lake Okeechobee!

Then this happened

There was some back and forth. It came at a very cranky moment because I felt like this person didn’t understand the context and I’m still having fantasies of inviting our legislators to Lake O for a swim.

Don’t take away my happy fantasy!

Out of my entire week of seriousness how can anyone take my laughter away.

not fair

Sadly it’s true. They are vegetarians. Which reminds me  of what my mother always said “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.”

This poor guy has seen this post so many time and he is in the business of fish. Now I feel terrible.

Apparently you eat these little guys with the big teeth. ( why would mother nature give them such big teeth. What vegetation grows that they need choppers like this to eat? Do I even want to know this.)

Apparently this guys sells them for food along with a bunch of other things that we all love like lobsta’s. Yes I know I spelled that wrong.

He did finally get the joke and I as usual learned something new.

and I  thought heard it all when I read about Dove AU Vin last week. But here’s how you cook the little guys.

So here is my gift to Squidbass-takes like chicken hahahahah

Here you go!
