Hello Everybody! Ms. Waxy Dragon here!
And it's open mike time again.

*tap* *tap* Is this thing on? *ahem*

Knock, Knock.
Whose there?
Wooden Shoe.
Wooden Shoe who?
Wooden Shoe like to know!

Why did the computer technician go to the shoe store?
To reboot.

Now being a baby dragon, I don't have to wear shoes. They would make for lousy take offs and landings when I flap my wings to fly.
After all, birds don't wear shoes either and they fly. But why they don't just hop on an airplane and really rack up those frequent flyer miles the easy way is beyond me.
The airline certainly can't lose a bird's luggage.
Can you picture it? "I'm sorry Tweety. But you're here and your nest accidentally got shipped to Hawaii."

Now I do know that there are some animals, like horses, that do have to wear shoes.
Yet in this case, the shoes are these U shaped pieces of metal that they nail to the bottom of the horse's feet! How cruel is that?
Why can't you just find the horse a nice set of comfortable size 12 athletic tennis shoes?

After all, trying to put shoes on a dragon is like to shoe a cow. And you have to do that a lot if you're a farmer with a bad fence. You have to shoe the cows out of the corn field and shoe them out of anywhere else they get into that cows aren't supposed to be!

But good luck trying to shoe a fly! Those pesky little things are everywhere each spring and summer! And one never stays still long enough to take its foot measurements.
Yet I can tell you folks that baby dragons, like frogs, find flies mighty tasty. Although no matter how many I eat, I'm always hungry again an hour later.

That's all the space I have for today folks!
But we'll be back next weekend with more Sunday Funnies!-wd.
