THE FARMER VIEWED HIS FIELD OF PUMPKINS. TO HIM, IT WAS:
GORUEDUSOG – – – “GOURD – GEOUS”
Good morning, Everyone! Hello, GOURD-GEOUS!
🎃🎃 Pumpkins, squash, cucumbers too, are all considered gourds
A funny sounding, oft confusing, oddly looking word…
It’s usually in Autumn that we mostly hear it’s name
Although the summer melons are included in its fame.
I think that I can count the times in my lifetime I’ve said
The word itself, it’s one that never pops into my head…
But look at this, it’s shown today, this word to me bizarre
The pun is great, but Gourd still won’t work in my repertoire! 🎃🎃
At the 1969 Academy Awards, Barbra Streisand, on accepting her Best Actress award for Funny Girl, gazed lovingly at the gold statuette, and said, in her inimitable Brooklyn accented voice…”Hello, Gorgeous”. That’s what immediately came to mind when I read this mornings cartoon. I wonder if that SEED was PLANTed in Dave’s mind too. Nothing new CROPped up in today’s words, but the anagrams are excellent. (Even after I knew the last word was OXYGEN, Eggnog was still in my mind). SEASONal Affective Disorder I guess! So, our cartoon. A Pumpkin farm, a farmer, a blonde dressed in purple (!), and pumpkins galore. Living on the East Coast, I’ve done this three times already this year. Pumpkin and Apple picking. And it’s planned again for Sunday! We have Pumpkins inside and outside. We’ll cook them, carve them, bake with them, decorate with them…We make elaborate ORANGEments. We have fun with them. I buy tons of Jack Be Little ones and hold an annual “Pumpkin Patch Hunt”. (Like an Easter Egg hunt, sans the hard BOILing). The kids have a really GOURD time, and it’s always a SMASHing success. I dress up as the Fairy GOURDmother, and the parents come for the BOOS. Anyway, the farmer’s very proud of his CROP, he’s acting all MUSHY about it. The woman is taking a picture. We obviously have a GOURD looking group of pumpkins here…They’re “GOURD-GEOUS”! Great pun, great puzzle, great piece of Pumpkin Pulchritude!
So, there you have it, Folks! Done! Eye candy? I’m not PUMPed up by anything in the cartoon this morning. Today it’ll be the dialogue. “I need to post this “picture”… I guess she’s into PULP FICTION!
Have a great day, Everyone! Get out there and pick some PUNkins! 🎃 🙋🏻
