And they will never steal her stapler ever again

Once upon a time there was a warthog named Penelope.

Penelope loved chicken gravy and mashed potatoes.

This, of course, meant chickens and potatoes were afraid of her and never wanted to be friends.
It also explained the mysterious disappearance of all the chickens and potatoes who kept annoying her at work.

They were delicious.

Brian: I recommend spending a little extra for the expensive gravy.

razzamadazzle: Write it on a post-it note and keep it by your desk!

If only we all worked with real potatoes and chickens instead of potatoheads and chickens****s.

A Filling 55

Hedgewitch: And on Fridays we could all have french fries and chicken nuggets! Start deciding now which dipping sauces should go with each co-worker.

Janna...
When I visit you I think that I should change my prompt from the Friday Funfest, to the Friday Foodfest!
Loved your 55 My Friend.
You are like crossing over the border into Michigan, after spending a week in Ohio.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Janna said...

G-Man: I've done that! (the Ohio thing). It IS nice to come home again. :)
Cincinnati people do some pretty weird things with chili.

This post was a lot of fun. Well done.

Enchanted Oak said...

People who steal staplers need to disappear. Thanks for an inventive way to accomplish that.
My 55 also discusses delicious things:
Bacon-fat gravy

Which came first: the chicken or the veg (potato)?

Ami Mattison said...

LOL! Love this 55! I chuckled aloud. Thanks for a little humor this morning!

TALON said...

lol! I agree - everything seems better with gravy!

Loved this 55!

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Hmmm... I wonder how Boss gravy would taste? LOL!

Another fun 55 from the unique mind of Janna!

Mama Zen said...

Perhaps this is why my potatoes are standoffish . . .

Alice Audrey said...

What a foolish mash potatoes, stealing her stapler like that.

Janna said...

avoid the clap: Thank you! (P.S. You have a very interesting name.) (!!) :o

Enchanted Oak: I also get upset when people steal garlic bread.

nonamedufus: Weeelll, let's see.... according to the first chapter of Genesis, plants were created before animals....

Ami Mattison: You're welcome! Thanks for visiting. :)

TALON: The only possible exception might be chocolate cake. Even then, we might be able to work something out.

Bubba: Boss gravy isn't bad, once you stir away all the bubbles of hot air. :)

MamaZen: Try lulling them into a false sense of security by playing classical music.

Alice: Foolish indeed!

Jannie Funster said...

They always steal my stapler too. And my scotch tape, pens, scissors and glue.

WOW -- 4 days with no electricity, holy cow. Bet that would make for some wild blogging posts.

Monkey Man said...

Now I'm hungry.

Janna said...

Jannie: What about post-it notes? Do they ever steal those? I like post-it notes. And staplers. Are these your scissors?

MonkeyMan: Me too!

The Offended Blogger said...

Are you encouraging cannibalism? At work?? Using exactly 55 words???

I bow to your greatness. :)

kavisionz said...

LOLZ!!! This was too good! Now... I should be worried cuz I too love chicken and potatoes.. but then hey...I don't work with Penelope! :) Well, atleast not anymore!!

ENJOYED your fun 55, J!! teeheehee

Janna said...

Chelle: I'm glad to encourage anything which involves potatoes and chicken gravy. :)

kavisionz: Once the number of co-workers mysteriously dips to zero, Penelope has to change jobs a lot... beware. :o
