George Goes Fishing: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’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.

Funny Friday:a multi-blogger challenge: one picture, five captions,  | developed and run by | #MyGraphics

1. George (a northerner visiting his cousin): I don't see the jetty, is it invisible?
Billy Bob (a local): You're in the south now, see that log? That IS the jetty.

2. George: That doesn't really look clean, and there's so much debris, is it really a problem, people swimming here?
Billy Bob: Oh cousin, on some of the hotter days we swim in puddles.

3. George: What are we fishing for? Fire wood?

4. George: That's not the correct way to write a letter, you have to address someone.
Billy Bob: Huh?
George: Like instead of saying:

No Swimming
From Fishing Jetty

it should say: 

Dear Aunt Mabel,
No swimming.
Fishing Jetty 

Billy Bob: That's what I get for inviting an English professor to come visit.

5. George's wife (when George returned from fishing): How'd you do? We having fish for dinner?
George: Lets just say I caught some invisible fish from an invisible jetty.

And now for something yummy (not fish, since none were caught):

Apple Oatmeal Quick Bread

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup quick oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp apple pie spice
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup applesauce
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 egg
1/2 of an apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 X 5 loaf pan.
*Mix together the flour, quick oats, cinnamon, apple pie spice, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
*In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, honey, applesauce, apple cider vinegar and egg.
*Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients just until incorporated, then fold in the chopped apple and walnuts. Pour evenly into the prepared pan.
*Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the center of the top springs back to the touch. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before running a knife around the edges and removing to cool completely.


  1. 4 was my favorite. But my favorite favorite is the bread! I love oatmeal, oats, oatmeal cookies, oatmeal bread...well you get the picture.

    1. I love adding quick oats to recipes for the texture but also because it's so healthy.

  2. Love number four! I didn't get the whole "from Fishing Jetty" until my Christian used a similar line. That bread is absolutely getting made at my house. I bet it smells incredible! <3

    1. I knew #4 was going to be your favorite while I was writing it!

  3. Oats and apple is a wonderful combination. I would have said "oh, not until fall" but first, my son is supposed to come over and drop off some apples he got from somewhere, and second, it is supposed to dip into the 40's at night this weekend. We'll see if he ever comes with the apples and go from there. Pinned in the meantime. Alana

    1. Hope you do get the apples and don't get that cold weather.

  4. These are all so good, Karen! My personal favourite? 3. I can't imagine anything else living there--except maybe frogs!
    Oh, those English Professors... Let's Eat Grampa!

    1. It was a really great picture to work worth, this month's Funny Friday almost wrote itself.

  5. When the chips (and my car) are down, i'll take Billy Bob's smarts over the English professor any day. How much you wanna bet Billy Bob has jumper cables (possibly holding parts of the truck together).

  6. Apple oatmeal bread sounds fantastic. I've been guilty of getting banana bread from time to time and it's such comfort.

    1. I'm a banana bread fan too, I need to work on a lower fat and sugar version of that too.
