Pop Goes The Turkey

The Turkey Popped Out of the Oven*

The Turkey popped out of the oven
and rocketed in to the air;

It knocked every plate off the table
and partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner
and burst with a deafening boom,

Then splattered all over the kitchen,
completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the walls and the windows,
it totally coated the floor,

There was turkey attached to the ceiling,
where there had never been turkey before..

It blanketed every appliance,
it smeared every saucer and bowl;

There wasn't a way I could stop it;
that turkey was out of control.

I scraped and I scraped with displeasure
and thought with chagrin as I mopped,

That I would never again stuff a turkey
with popcorn that hadn't been popped.

No Halloween or Thanksgiving in Arkansas*

The state of Arkansas recenetly annouced that Halloween and
Thanksgiving will no longer be state holidays.

The witch left for New York,and took the turkey with her.

Shooting the Thanksgiving Turkey*

Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of
shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving . . .

you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department.

I guess that's enough turkey for one day from this turkey.

Oh, Lord, this turkey stuff is so hilarious. I'm thinking of fixing hamburgers for Thanksgiving. LOL.

How did you do those riddles? I love it!

Just another reason that I'm glad to be a vegetarian. No shooting turkeys for me. It's easier to shoot tofu - it can't run or fly! hahahahahahahahah
