Farm Day a Success

name_that_mutant_goat_by_CopperAge

Once again the Jones’s opened Meadow Farm to the public to share the delights of spring. Families flocked to see flowers, chicks and lambs. Nothing quite equalled last year’s mutant goat, but the three legged chickens were as popular as ever. Other attractions included the traditional pie fight, a tour of the farm and assorted contests. The spitting contest was won by Ethan Miller while the wife carrying contest was won by Reginald Aubergine. However, this caused some controversy as Mrs Asumpta Aubergine is of course dead, and as a ghost, weighs nothing and cannot technically be carried, which many feel gave him an unfair advantage. No prize was given for best cake, as the cakes were enlisted in attempts to solve the problems over the wife carrying contest. Whether cake throwing will replace pie throwing for next year remains to be seen! This reporter feels that the jam involved provided a nice change from the less appetising pie contents we get most years.

I guess you can’t have a spring picnic without a cheating ghost.

No one thought to specify whether the ‘wife’ had to be living or not. As well we don’t have a democracy round here – imgine the trouble we’d have over whether being dead, or undead for that matter (there are rumours…) excludes you from voting!

The mutant goat is SO cute!! Now I wish I had a mutant goat! I think it’s the 3rd eye that does it – or maybe the little smile. I wonder what he is thinking to make him smile like that …?
