A POOPY POST; Fishducky Friday

Welcome, Fishducky!


Without a doubt, birds are the biggest perpetrators
of unwanted poop.  Would that make them “poopetrators”?

How birds see us  


A bird’s version of potty training

Maybe you should be nicer to your husband:

They’re into politics, too:
I don’t want to offend anyone.  Please feel free
to change the top 3 names to the administration of your choice.

We all know how much they love cars:

Birds aren’t the only of nature’s creatures to give us potty problems:

(This reminds me of a poem from my childhood.  If you have
trouble reading it, I’ve put a “translation” at the end of this post—
or you could ask your children to read it to you.)
A b, c d goldfish?
O, s, a r!  S, a r!
C m p n?


When one of my granddaughters was being toilet trained, her daddy put her on her baby potty (on the floor) & left the room for a minute.  When he returned, she was sitting there reading a magazine, upside down.  (The magazine was upside down, not my granddaughter.)  This isn’t her, but it’s pretty close:

I’ll leave you with some people who have something you never have—
a poopy attitude:


And, of course, this is NEVER you:

(The poem)
Abie, see the goldfish?
Hell, them ain’t no goldfish!
Oh, yes, they are!  Yes, they are!
See ‘em peein’?

I apologize for this post----fishducky


  1. Hehehe ... in this part of the world it's considered good luck if a bird messes on you ... a sign ...

  2. You are in a mood today! I actually had a few laugh out louds from this one. :-)

  3. I think 'l m n o goldfish' is missing from the poem.

  4. Yes, looks like a line is missing from the poem. Funnies this morning! Chuckles are always a good way to start the day. :)

  5. Reminds me of the time a few friends dragged me to the Bronx zoo. There was a a walk-through aviary (I think...either way the door was unlocked). Needless to say, going in there was a bad idea.

  6. To all you lovers of fine poetry, I apologize!! This is how the poem read in the copy I sent Elisa:

    A b, c d goldfish?
    L, m n o goldfish!
    O, s, a r! S, a r!
    C m p n?

  7. To everybody--I'll be out of town on Monday--we're going to our granddaughter's high school graduation in Connecticut--so I probably won't be able to respond to your comments on that day's post. Please leave a comment anyway--I love to read them!

  8. Hehehe! I have been pooped on 3 times by birds but my favorite pooped on story was not my own. There was a guy in high school who thought he was God's gift to women. He got pooped on 3 times in 30 minutes during lunch break! The first 2 times were at the same time right on his nice leather jacket, and the 3rd time was right after he came out of the bathroom from cleaning off the first 2 poos! And I'm pretty sure the 3rd time was on his perfectly style hair-do!
    Congrats to your granddaughter for graduating! I hope you have a blast celebrating with your family! :)

    1. Your comment reminded me of a Gary Larson "Far Side" cartoon. A group of warthogs are at a party & one of is dressed like the guy you mentioned. Two lady warthogs are talking & one says to the other, "He thinks he's God's gift to warthogs!" He deserved it!!

  9. A bird got me smack dab on the head once years ago. Once was enough. Now I zig and I zag when I'm outside.


  10. I have no poop comments as I have a dog with a sensitive stomach who does not always make it out of the house. I am sooo tired of poop! Have a nice trip though.

  11. INGER--How can anyone ever get tired of poop?

  12. I think the comic strips cinched it, this is one smelly post.

  13. Dear Fran, thank heavens for litter boxes so I can easily scoop the poop!


  14. My friend recently told me that one time a bird pooped in her glass of (whatever she was drinking). Unfortunately she took a few sips before she realized it. *gag*
