It was a nice day (for Wisconsin) yesterday, so I took a walk along the lake, to see what I could see. I always find some strange things, but yesterday was a puzzler. It's not often you find a coconut along the shores of a lake. Of course I had to wonder how it came to be....
The Department of Silly Fruit
"Don't smash it! It could be the egg of the great coco bird."
"The coco bird is extinct, you warbling wussy."
"Then explain how it got here, MR.KNOWITNOT!"
(As the warbling wussy explains the egg/chicken theory, a great honking of geese, and Father Crispy drown out the world's most kept secret)
"And that is why this coco-egg came upon the shores of the Great Lake."
"I think we should take it to the Department of Silly Fruit to have it examined."
"Did you not hear what I just said, you slimy mackerel! It's a bird, a bird, a bird.
(Sitting at the great feet of Doctor Ofmyeyes, an expert in coconut droppings)
You are both wrong! It is the left ball of Kobe Bryant."
"Eeeewwwww," they all gag, yet fight for the honor of displaying Bryant's nut on their hearth.
And with that, a song is in need.
Who needs coco bird, when you can have silly fruit,
forgo the candy hearts and give her Kobe's nut.
It will hang around for years, upon the family mantle,
it will squelch the shriek of Mum,
Happy V-day to everyone!
