Love Hurts: 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.

1. Harry Hawk: Are you finally ready to go? I've been waiting for you forever.
Hazel Hawk: That depends. Do I look fat in these feathers?

2. Harry Hawk: What is that song those humans are playing? 
Hazel Hawk: It sounds like Fly Like an Eagle.
Harry Hawk: Well that's just insulting. 

3. Harry Hawk: What are you looking at?
Hazel Hawk: That TV in the window down there.

Harry Hawk: Why?
Hazel Hawk: I'm looking for someone I know.

Harry Hawk: What?
Hazel Hawk: They keep talking about some guy, must be a cousin, but I don't see any birds at all.
Harry Hawk: Why do you think he's a cousin?
Hazel Hawk: That little guy, they call him Radar, keeps saying he's going to go get Hawkeye.

4. Hazel Hawk: I'm tired of hunting, I'm going back to the nest.
Harry Hawk: But we haven't eaten yet.
Hazel Hawk: I'm too tired for take-out, can't you just splurge and do delivery for once?

5. Harry Hawk: Jeez, woman, you need to get those talons trimmed. You add a whole new meaning to "love hurts."

And now for something yummy:

  1. My husband loves shrimp. I'm not a fan. My husband loves hot, spicy stuff. I'm not a fan. So, what happens when tastes collide? He's actually sweet about it. He'll make fish for me and shrimp for him, and he has a collection of hot sauces to choose from. Sweet for him to do the extra work. I think you will have a lot of fans for this recipe. Some of them might be hawks, too. Alana

    1. That really is sweet of him to do the extra work. I have one or two things Hubs can't eat that I still make and have to make him an alternative, but mostly I just cook what he can have.

  2. Those are funny, thanks for the grins!

  3. Love the recipe and can’t wait to try it! We eat a lot of shrimp these days.
    Captions are awesome!

    1. Yes, I've been sharing a lot of shrimp recipes because we've been eating a lot of shrimp too.

  4. I like giving a voice to a character or this case 'hawk' I did an improv scene with my orange flashy sunglasses. It worked!

  5. That one had shiny yellow feathers, I understand though he leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

  6. I'm going to make spicy shrimp with zucchini noodles. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Funny <3 LOve those hawks..they look so ferociously cool! I love shrimp..and this recipe looks so darn delicious...going to make something with shrimp today <3

  8. How did I miss this one? Still catching up from a week of no WiFi!
    That Radar still breaks me up!
    Love hurts! Priceless! ;)

    1. No WiFi for you, no kitchen fridge for me, we're both roughing it.
