Oh, The Google searches I'm going to get...

I know - two posts in less than 12 hours... No, I'm not sick, but thanks for asking!

I have been meaning to post this one for a while, but I've been hesitant, because I can only imagine the crazy search terms that will bring perverts people here... However, Catwoman recently posted this (You MUST read it, go ahead, I'll wait) so I decided to suck it up and just post the story already.


A few weeks ago, Budman sent me this link. (I feel I must warn you, this site can be a tremendous time suck, so let's try and stay focused on me and MY story first, Mkay??) I thought it was funny, and gave it no more thought. When he came to pick me up from work that evening, however, this thing

003 004

was in the car, in my seat... Purty, ain't it??

"Oh gawd, you bought one?? I just thought you were sending me another crazy product idea." (He loves to do this. I don't know how he finds some of this crazy stuff.) Turns out, he and his boss had stopped by the hardware store at lunchtime - Men - and he saw the chicken sitting there innocently, picked it up, and when he saw what it did, he had to have it.

So, the chicken came home with us.

Monkey and Mater were very curious about the chicken. They really love that their father likes toys as much as they do. (except when they bring home a cool happy meal toy, and he steals it, but I digress)

Here's the point where I must show you what it does - PLEASE, if you are at work, or have a sleeping baby, husband or dog, and don't want them to wake up, turn down your sound. (Actually, it's not quite as loud as I thought it would be...)

Naturally, the boys then wanted in on the fun.

ALL.EVENING.LONG. I was bombarded by the following statements coming from my little darlings:

I want to choke the chicken!

Mom, can I choke Daddy's chicken?

Is it my turn to choke the chicken??

No, you can choke the chicken after I'm done!

I LOVE choking the chicken!

FINALLY (long after all the talk of choking the chicken had gotten old) it was bedtime. The boys each begged to be allowed to choke the chicken one more time before they went to bed, and as they were heading up the stairs exclaiming things like "I want to choke the chicken again tomorrow" and "Choking the chicken is FUN!", Monkey cried out "That is the best thing ever!!"

To which his father replied "Almost, son, almost

awesome. Thanks, Honey!!

(And what is UP with my gratuitous use of parentheses lately?)

Oh my, my children would throw themselves on the floor of the store until I bought that for them! That's just hysterical...I love it...LOVE IT!

I'd have had to divert my kids to another aisle of the store had we seen something like that! The chicken choking that would be going on here would be epidemic in proportion!

If you're lucky, maybe the chicken will poop out soon.

No. Wait. You probably don't want that kind of chicken around...

Mike said...

Hey, at least with this toy you have a kind of chicken choking going on in your house that you won't mind walking in on!!!

Melody said...

I LOVE YOUR NEW LOOK! The colors are great! =)

Karly said...

Little boys...always wanting to choke their chickens. ;)

Leslie said...

That is hilarious!

And now I don't feel so bad for asking my daughter to repeat pee pecker (her word for wooodpecker) again and again. Because it was funny.

georgie said...

Kristine said...

Oh, man it's this kind of story that makes me so excited for when Landon actually starts speaking so that we can understand him.

Manic Mommy said...

Oh, that would wear thin so very, very fast.

I would have heard "but it's my turn to sleep with the chicken!".

Oh, the Google hits.

Lynette said...

At least you can explain this kind of chicken choking should somebody ask.

Angela said...

bahahahahahahahahaha

I wish I had something witty to type but I keep thinking about "No its MY turn to choke the chicken!"

hahahahahahahahaha

Wendy said...

We have to get one of these. So that we can add "Last night at home I choked my daddy's chicken" to the list of reasons why Dolly's school asks me to please come at my earliest convenience, at least three times per week.

nikki said...

This is the best thing I've read in a long time.

Reluctant Housewife said...

That is so funny. "Chocking the chicken is the best thing ever" heeheehee...

Great post!

Connie said...

That is great!

I don't think my husband would understand what it means to choke the chicken. He is an engineer and I have to 'splain stuff to him all the time!

Thanks for the laugh!

HA HA HA HA HA...

The novelty (hopefully) has worn off by now, but you should take video of your kids saying those things. Then they can be mortified when you show it to them in high school. ;-)

Debbie said...

Yes, this is "best post" worthy. And what google searches did you receive after this post?

texasholly said...

I love it. So funny. The chicken is precious if you have your computer muted.

Thanks so much for linking today!

Valarie said...

Just when I think "surely there is nothing funnier out in blog land" I see this! This was so funny :)

dddiva said...

That was hysterical- bet you can't wait to have the little darlin's out in public wanting to choke the chicken, huh?
"mommy when we get home can I choke the chicken?" Bwahahahaha glad I had girls.

Elaine A. said...

OH my... I sure hope MY husband never finds this... And I won't be showing him your post! ; )

Funny though... quite funny.

Threeboys1mommy said...

I'm always going to knock on my sons door. LOUDLY! I never ever want to catch them choking a chicken.

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

Seriously, What man could resist a choking chicken gag gift? They HAD to get it.
