I'm the first robin of Spring. Call me Rob. Everyone around the forest does. I'm happy to be back up North after my Southern vacation.
Before we begin, I would like to clarify a couple of things.
First off, I know what conditions are like for some of you right now, but I have absolutely no control over the weather whatsoever. Last fall when I was booking my trip South, my travel agent and I looked over the calendar, saw March 20 was to be the first day of Spring for 2011, and booked my return flight accordingly.
And yes, we do fly South every year because it's too far to walk, but if you protect your nest egg well enough, you can afford to pay someone else do the flying every trip. I'm still mad at the airline for losing my luggage, but that's another story.
Anyway, I know some areas are still having below freezing every night, and a few places are even preparing for the possibility of snow this week (again!), but that is not my fault.
Secondly, I have absolutely no connection with anyone who dresses up as a bat. Granted, I know some birds who are big in Major League Baseball circles, but that's as close as I get.
Anyway, today is the first day of Spring, at least as far as the calendar is concerned, so I thought I would entertain you with some jokes. Ready?
Why do chicken coupes have only two doors?
Because if they had four doors, then they would be chicken sedans.
Why do hummingbirds hum?
Because they forgot the words.
Can you imagine forgetting the words to your own bird songs? How embarrassing!
What bird lives underground?
A mynah bird!
And considering some of the lucky strikes they make sometimes, no wonder they'll able to feather their nests so nicely.
What do you call an intelligent duck?
A wise quacker.
Well, that's about all the space I was given for this guess appearance. Now I'm gonna fly back to my nest and try to stay warm until Spring really arrives. I think the season needs to get a new travel agent, don't you?
Take care and be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-Rob.
