Oh the Humanity!

I walked in to the kitchen to make lunch and found this:



Needless to say, I was horrified. I thought Obi Wan and Fred were just messing around a couple of weeks back, taking harmless shots at each other in that way guys do. Alpha Male crap. This is a bad angle. A very bad angle. Take a look at this one:










So it's not what you thought (I know - it looked bad). It's far worse. I guess Fred and Bessie are like that guy on Tatooine - I wanna call him Zaboomafoo, but I know that will get me in trouble - the one who owned little Anakin and his mom? Jedi mind tricks didn't work on him.

Looks like Obi Wan got his light saber out, but not in time. Of course, I immediately pulled the two of them off of the Jedi (alright, after running for the camera, taking a couple of photos, making sure the lighting was right), but they managed to make hamburger of his arm and foot. And they don't look one bit penitent. In fact, I'll need to make sure all the action figures in the house stay out of reach, now that they've had a taste of plastic.

What I've been sitting here wondering is how on earth they snuck up on poor Obi Wan like that? Why did he let down his guard? What on earth was going through the minds of the cows? I guess I'll never know. What a sad day.

Until I write again ...

P.S. Thanks to all of you congratulating people out there! And my deepest apologies to those of my bloggy friends still battling cold and snow - the garden post was not meant to hurt you. It was only to hurt me - in fact, I'm still pretty sore two days later.

This is a busy week, but spring break is coming and I'll be catching up. Stupid time change finds me hitting the pillow much earlier than usual, or I'd be catching up with everyone at night.

And my apologies for the word verification - tell me how to delete people's spam comments and I'll take it off. Someone? Anyone?

Okay - help me out. See that comment up there? It's a spammy thing. And it seems to be viral, so don't click on the commenter's name. Okay? What I want to know is how I delete it. You know - that whole moderator deleted comment thingy. Anyone?

Marguerite said...

They probably disguised themselves as banthas. Either that, or Obi Wan did his Tusken Raider yell and set them to stampedin'. There's a thought. You sure they weren't trying to help him after he got jumped by Sand People? They could have come in with your garden sand....

Not sure about the spam. :( Can you contact the Blogger people or turn off html?

Hi, I noticed you listed smocking in your things you like to do.

Do you smock much? I smock for grandchildren after smocking for my youngest daughter(now 29).

Flea said...

Margo - I don't think it was Sand People. It looked to me like Fred was holding Obi-Wan down while Bessie did the chewing. But you might be right. I'll have to check the silverware drawer now.

And Shirley - thanks for dropping in! I'll pop over to your blog and chat about smocking a bit. :)

Sheesh, you cows are cannibals. I've never had spam so I don't know how to delete them but I don't use word veri either....

Andrea said...

Flea...I lurk here from Straight Shooter.

I think you can go into your dashboard and click on the post comments of the post you want to delete from. Then click where it says how many comments you have and it will show you the comments for that post only. At the bottom of the comment, there is a trash can. Click it and you're all set.

Flea said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'll be turning off the word verification now. I HATE that thing!!!

dlyn said...

Bah! Who cares about a silly Star Wars action figure anyway? Cows rule!!!!

Poltzie said...

I'm a little concerned about the cows, er, um, sexual habbits. It really looks like Fred is making some sexual advances in the first shot there. I'm also worried that he was making Bessie watch. I think you need to be worried!

Asthmagirl said...

I wonder if you can't do something to contain the cows? A fence made out of vanilla beans or something? Seems like they're getting a littls zesty!

Karen said...

Look at Fred go! He's taking on the entire universe.

Lori said...

Ok, gonna let my Star Wars geekyness show a little:
I think the guy you were referring to was Zebulva? That strange, blue floating guy who looked kinda like an ant-eater.
And Spam is from the Dark side. Glad you took care of it!

Andrea said...

no problem flea...thanks for the great blog!

Jen said...

Wouldn't his Jedi powers help him out in a time like that? Poor guy.

Weezee said...

I am sure Obi thought cows are nothing to be afraid of so that's why he let his guard down. Poor guy, I bet he doesn't get anymore movie deals after this incident.

I think Fred was just showing his dominance nothing to be concerned about. Really.
