World Record

It was time…time for the daredevil act of the century. If this stunt could be successfully accomplished, it would qualify as a historic page in the history books.

The contestant was back stage getting herself prepared. She scrubbed her face with an avocado paste, applied ‘Radiant Red’ lipstick, and braided her hair with ribbons. Being a Canadian citizen, she wore a white cape with a red Maple Leaf design stitched on. She felt ready to begin her flight into history.

The people from Guinness Record Books were there, too, to document this never before done trapeze act. It was a first to beat all firsts.

Gong Gong Gong

The hammer beat upon the gong to signal it was starting. The crowd was hushed in anticipation. Then, as the star of the day came into the arena, the loudspeakers introduced her to a rousing piano tune.

Mounting the specially made trapeze, she swung higher and higher, and even higher…and she let go! Soaring through the air as beautiful as a butterfly

the cow jumped over the moon!

6th Annual COW – Contest of Whatever

Standard

Contest of Whatever

The Sixth Annual Contest Of Whatever!

***

In case you’re wondering, this is a fun contest hosted by the Evil Squirrel’s Nest. You can find out more by clicking the above link.

This Contest of Whatever is just that…make up something silly…whatever you want, but it needs to start out with this:

A squirrel walked into a bar…

The rest is up to you. There’s still a few days left, if you’d like to join in the fun. 🙂

A squirrel walked into a bar…

Looking around he asks Doc, the bartender, “Is the the COW place?”

The bartender shrugged. “Whatever you want…what’ll it be?”

Thinking a few moments, the squirrel asks for a Daiquiri with an almond in it.

Knowing they were fresh out of almonds, Doc the bartender puts a Hickory nut into the Daiquiri instead.

“Here ya go”, he says to the squirrel.

The squirrel takes a sip. He can taste the difference. Calling over the bartender again, he says, “I didn’t order a Hickory Daiquiri, Doc.”

Doc laughed and laughed. “Sorry, squirrel, this is the COW bar, and you’ll take what you get.”

Squirrel went berserk, just like he’d done in church the past Sunday.
