Gobble Gobble

Last week a few of us played a little joke on our colleague Chris by putting a 6 foot tall inflatable lighted turkey in his driveway for him to find late one night as he came home.  He returned the favor a few days later by leaving it on my desk (fully inflated) early one morning.

See the pictures of what we’re now calling the ‘giant turkey’ below.

All this spurred a few turkey haiku’s which I thought in the spirit of the season I’d share with you (these were authored by me, Chris, my wife Greeley and friend Laura): great turkey surprise oh where will you show up next in some neighbor’s yard gobble gobble great turkey arrives each fall season here to all children’s joy giblets too large, hah! inflated turkey ego. pull the plug for now way too much turkey. tryptophan is kicking in. must go to sleep nowturkey day is near stuffing for the bird and me   better bring the TUMSwho cooked this turkey? so very dry and tasteless, please baste more often.

  • I love it!
    We should start a monthly haiku series where we haiku blog what’s new in our life. It’s good training to speak concisely. And perhaps exercise some right brain muscles…
