  1. I wonder if Bank of America follows you on Instagram just in case you come across a golden chicken you feel the need to purchase. I’m not sure if that’s good customer service or just plain freaky, honestly.

  12. I would only be concerned if the golden chicken followed you to the lab. But if she did, make sure it is not a doppelganger chicken before you yell. And don’t say WTF.. chickens do not like swear words. Except for chickenshit. That word is okay.

  16. Did Victor tell the credit card company he was going to be out of the country? Because sometimes if we go on vacation even within the U.S. our credit card company will call us and say, “Are you REALLY staying at the Howard Johnson’s in Podunkville?” Pretty embarrassing to have to say “yes” to that.

  25. Here is my question? Why would someone chain up a huge golden rooster anyways…
    Does it run away? Is the person that owns it taunting someone who wants it? I am being serious I would like to know why it was chained to the tree…..

  40. I got up yesterday morning and decided I need a goose. A white goose made of wood and it has to be 3 to 4 feet tall. The Viking said “What the fuck do you want a goose for?” I didn’t have an answer for him – I just need a goose. I’m sure there is a very good reason for wanting a goose but my brain hasn’t let me in on the secret yet. Maybe I want to give it to The Viking as a gift? At this point, I’m just concentrating on finding the perfect goose and I let the rest of it take care of itself. I’m not even kidding.

Also, is dogs-in-doctor-offices a new craze or something? My mom’s kidney doctor has two very large Dobermans that wander around the office, first time she saw them she freaked out.

Plus the girl that works there says everyone keeps cutting themselves on the razor-pointy claws. However they would definitely keep the drug-addled young creeps from trying to steal my husband’s truck again. I’ve tried not to name them as I know I can never own them BUT if I win a lottery those fuckers are going in my front yard, HEAR ME NEIGHBOURS???

  44. My Naturopathic Doctor has a very large poodle named Luna she brings to her office. Luna is gorgeous and very well behaved. The first time I met her, I thought she was a statue. Until she moved. And I screamed. And she barked. And I screamed louder. And damn near peed my pants. Which wouldn’t have been good because I had to give said Doctor a urine sample.

    I told her to stop bring her statue dog to the office, or post a note on the door saying the dog was alive, so people like me wouldn’t freak out. I don’t understand why she thought I was strange.

I saved her, valiantly rescued her in my pajamas (incurring countless scratches) and brought her back to her owners across the street. I knocked on the door and told the sleepy man that I had his indoor cat all rescued and safe, to which he answered “You mean THIS cat?” and immediately produced its twin. Wow…the chagrin.
