My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, 
and I said, "Fried chicken."

She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, 
because everyone else laughed.  My parents told me to 
always tell the truth.  I did. Fried chicken is my favorite 

I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher 
was probably a member of PETA. He said they love 
animals very much.

I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, 
my teacher sent me to the principal's office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. 
Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my 
favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. 
She asked me why, so I told her it was because you 
could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, 
and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, 
but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what 
famous person I admired most.

I told her, "Colonel Sanders."

Guess where I am now?

Thanks Katy !

Our family finally made it home from Stanford last night about
9:00.  We dropped the kids at there place. It was not fun walking through the snow with a new born and his mom all
stitched up. But, by cracky, we got er done.  Here's Dresden's photo sent by Kat to me last night. He was waiting to go home.


  1. Randy, Probably is. You gotta love that kid.

  2. People for the Eating of Tasty Animals...

  3. Brooke, I love your definition, and I loves friiiied chicken.

  4. Bwahahahahahaha. I'm with him. I like chicken, pork and beef too. Good one Odie.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  5. If it's fried it must be good...except for tofu that is.

  6. Ya gotta like a little boy like that.

    Both of 'em.

  7. Edutcher, The one in the story captured my heart as did Dresden.

  8. At least that little kid told the truth. More than we can say about Obama.

    Now to more pleasant things...Dresden is a precious little angel.

  9. BTW Gramps, Dresden is a little darling.

  10. Lady, I agree about Obama. I also of courses agree about Dresden.

  11. Randy, I thank you and of course I agree.

  12. Smart kid, dumb teacher. Had a few of those growing up, but most were pretty good though.

    Cute kid. Looks like he is all ready for grandpa to spoil him ;)

  13. Madhat, we all had those teachers. There are more of them now though.

    Grampa be spoilin that boy.

  14. Finger lickin' funny.

    Betcha that little baby boy will be liking fried chicken one day.

  15. Chicken is my favorite too.

    What a cute little guy.

    He needs sunglasses and a bandana like his grandfather.

  16. When growing up on the farm we only had chicken on Sunday. I would go out early that morning a select a young rooster and shoot him in the head with my trusty 22.

    Teach that young boy how to shoot and fish---best thing you'll can ever do for him.

  17. Ron, we'll get there. I think we have a little time yet.

  18. Oh Odie! What a perfect little darling baby boy!

    Congrats, Gramps, I know little Dresden is the luckiest guy around having a great grampa like you.
    Sorry I missed this, as you know, I've been feeling awful. So, I hope you and your readers send lots of prayers my way.

    God bless and congrats on your and Kat's little bundle of joy. He looks so big already.
    Bye, Bunni

    1. Bunni, thanks, but the photo fooled you. He was 5 pounds 12 oz.

      Get better girl.
