Puny Things

chickadee update...

All six of the eggs have hatched. Below is a picture I took late Tuesday afternoon. You can see at least two heads sticking out from under the mama.

Wednesday afternoon I got a glimpse of all six babies without the mama.

The chickadee's eggs are really tiny. They measure 14.8 mm X 11.5 mm (about the size of a jelly bean). Since the mother sits tightly on the nest, I was never able to get a picture of the babies when they first started hatching. I found this picture of some on line.


After thinking about such puny things as these baby birds, I received the following comic strip by e-mail today.

And that's exactly what you are in for!

Anyway, my thoughts went from puny things to punny things. What can I say? I'm an incorrigible punster! And as my wife would say, "Do NOT incorrige!"


Migration: A headache birds get when they fly to their winter home.

They are a perfect match - she's a real estate broker, and he has a lot to offer.

The dynamite salesman became an underground operative, but he blew his cover.

Q: What do you get when you cross a werewolf with a ceramicist?
A: A hairy potter.

New invention - a pencil with erasers at both ends! It sounds pointless to me.

I am reading the most interesting book about anti-gravity. I just can't put it down.

I knew a girl who went to beauty college and flunked cosmetics. Fortunately they let her take a make up exam.


The boss placed the following sign above the sink in the men's room:


The next day when he went to the men's room, he saw that someone had posted a sign beside the soap dispenser:

Did you hear that NASA recently put a bunch of Holsteins into low earth orbit? They called it "the herd that was shot around the world."

    Your comment about a genetic engineer who crossed a werewolf with a ceramicist reminded me of a few other feats of genetic engineers:

    Hannibal crossed the Alps with elephants. I think all he got was a headache.

    One genetic engineer crossed the yak with a camel and got a yakel.

    Then he crossed a yak with a buffalo and got a yakalo.

    Then he crossed a man with a woman and got a yakalot.
