Chickadees 8x8

In pickle-trees, there lived a clutch Of chickadees, too cute to touch, They banqueted on wiggle-bugs, And tickle-worms and giggle-slugs, How chubby-cheeked those birdies grew, Each week, they gained a pound or two, I loved those pretty chickadees... Until they ate my Pekingese. 8x8 Contest Sponsor: P.S. Awtry Date: 11 November 2018

Another example of your wicked sardonic humour- revealed with a piquant acid-drop twist in the tail. Love it!

Wow Chickadees weighing that much would be a scary thing indeed. Poor puppy! I got a kick out of this one Nina. Congratulations on your HM. : )

Too clever, no - there's not such thing as 'too' clever so I shall say Most clever, a delight that gave me a smile of my own. Loved the end, not so much the Pekingese, but I did. Your imagination is entertainment for all. All the best ... CayCay
