Split Decision: Funny Friday

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

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.

Here's today's picture. It was submitted by Me.

1. Child: Is this what they mean by "split decision?" 
Mom: Well, it's certainly proof that it's best to work together. 
2. Little Girl (looking at the tree): Mom, does that hurt? 
Mom: I don't think so, what do you think?
Little Girl: I don't think I'd want to do the splits for that long.
Mom: Good point.
3. Maple (to his friend the Cottonwood): I heard something about you and your wife, are you OK?
Cottonwood: Yes, unfortunately we hit a rough patch.
Maple: Were you able to work it out?
Cottonwood, No, we decided to split.

4. Tree (to his better half): Honey, I think you've taken social distancing a bit too far.

5. Girlfriend to boyfriend: I think we should take a break.
Boyfriend (disappointed): Why? Don't you like spending time with me?
Girlfriend: I do, but I need a little space. Sometimes it feels like we're joined at the hip.

And now for something yummy:

Orange Cranberry Pull-Apart Loaf

2 cans refrigerated crescent dough sheets
3/4 cup orange marmalade
2 TBSP cranberry juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice 
1/4 cup cranraisins
1/4 cup shelled roasted pistachios, chopped 

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a loaf pan.
*Unroll the crescent dough sheets and cut each one in half, the long way, then cut each half into thirds.
*Whisk together the orange marmalade, cranberry juice, cinnamon, and allspice. Mix in the cranraisins and chopped pistachios.
*Gently dollop a heaping teaspoon of the mixture into the center of the top of each of the 12 dough segments, then fold the bottom half over onto the filling. 
*Place loosely into your prepared loaf pan, folded side down and open side up to fill the pan.
*Bake for 20 minutes, loosely cover with tin foil and bake another 20 minutes. Remove from oven, gently run a knife around the edges, then allow to sit in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to serve.

  3. Mr. and Mrs. Birch no longer wanted to be held in close bondage. Their roots ,however, were deeply bound together. No matter how hard they tried to pull apart, that last hold would not give and they were intertwined at the root. Which evidently proved to be quite satisfactory to them as little Birches sprang up all around them..

    1. Yeah, it's one thing to do the splits, but permanently?

    2. Sometime, I'll tell you about the 'splits' that happened unexpectedly (and painfully) when I tried to do a simple cartwheel. Ouch.

  5. Oh this looks delicious. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  6. A bit of humor and a yummy recipe? Fabulous!


  7. Ouch. Tree social distancing hurts worse than it does for humans? Who knew? Alana
