Oh dear god. I just nearly died choking back laughter in the office.

Ha ha ha! Boooo.

Speaking of puns, let me tell you what hubby did... while I was at my daughter's dance class, he took a picture of Artichoke Bret and Jemaine Avocado in the compost pot, where I had placed them earlier. (I know, the indignities continue. :roll:) The reason he did this, he told me proudly, was so I could post it here with the title.... are you ready?.......can you guess it?........... Flight of the Compost. And that, ladies, is why I married him. :heart:

Hee heee! I dunno, I thought he looked kinda Mod. ;) The whole thing is disturbing but the noseless one had a certain... *expression* that I thought was kind of Jemaine-like. For an avocado.

There is something about the texture of the avocado that is really, really wrong. :lol: He looks like some kind of zombie Muppet.


Oh dear...and I used to LOVE avocados...up until about a minute ago :rolls: . :shock:
Zombie Muppet really does nail it. But I am VERY impressed at your skills. The way you formed his hair and features out of the avocado skin, it's very well done.

Personally, I see him as maybe more of a bell pepper, but I don't think I'm talented enough to even attempt it. :roll:

Oh, it's so sad to see them in the bin.... :cry:

I know, isn't it? :( But it was either that or let them rot on my counter. I suppose I could have eaten them but at this point I don't consider them food anymore, lol.
