Funny Friday: What the Heck?

Today’s post is March’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Is it a bird? A plane? Umm . . . I don't know what the hell it is . . .

2. I'm selling this on ebay as a piece of Stonehenge. Who's gonna say it's not?

3. Mom: Yes, darling, it's a beautiful art project.
Four year old: Do you know what it is, mommy?
Mom: Well of course I do, honey, how could I not?
Four year old: What is it?
Mom: Oh . . .  umm. . .  quick, I almost forgot, come into the kitchen, I made cookies.

4. Wife to husband: You bought me this for my birthday? At an art gallery? Are you sure you didn't pull it out of a dumpster? Umm . . . I mean thank you dear, very thoughtful, you shouldn't have. And I mean it, you shouldn't have.

5. Woman to self as she runs out of the museum: I don't know if that's a person who ate a rock or a rock who ate a person, but I'm not waiting around to find out.


And on that note . . . now for something yummy:

  1. Delicious looking cookies and yes a weird looking object. I think it is some sort of bulb but even my friend didn't know what it was and it was at her house. LOL

    1. Seriously? I thought it was some kind of moon rock at a museum. This was so much more fun and funny to do without knowing what the heck it is!

  4. Great captions! Yummy cookies!
    I thought it was a bird's nest. It actually looks like my attempt at sculpting in grade school. And no, I didn't know what that was, either . . .

    1. Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of grade school sculpture too. This was actually a lot of fun to do, not knowing what it is.

  5. Looks like something the birds do. Now the cookies are torture for me. Since I am in dental hell, caramels will not be in my future! :(

    1. Ooops, my bad. Ignore the cookies . . . if you can.

  7. Karen, I will have to admire the cookies from afar; I got dem sugar blues... but the, ahem, object could be something out of H. P. Lovecraft, by way of Ralph Steadman who drew those wild illustrations for Hunter S. Thompson, back in the early '70s. Pretty crazy looking thing! Mary

    1. So funny that everyone sees that thing differently. Pretty crazy looking is a good characterization.

  9. Seriously----what IS that thing?? You might be right---it's a rock who ate a person!

    1. Yeah, whatever it is, I don't mind never seeing it again!

  11. OK, so what is it?!?! You are going to tell us, right?
    Also, another question. You say to leave the cookies on the cookie sheet for 30 minutes after baking. How exactly do you do that? Don't you taste them at different points of the cooling process to make sure you are serving inferior goodies??

    1. I don't know what it is!
      You need to read that again, it's 3 minutes, just so they don't fall apart when moving them. Although my kids have no problem eating them right out of the oven.
