The Ornithophile

A Beginning (34)

I was touring Crystal Cave and noticed no birds.

“We don’t let ‘em get in here,” said the guide.

“Why’s that?”

“If they stayed in here it’d be too much of a bird den.”


A Middle (34)

“Get it?” he said.

“Got it.” Then, “I like birds, any way y’all could allow them in?”

The guard laughed and said, “Well, pal, you could wish for that and it stalagmite come true.”


An End (34)

Back at my cave.

“Hey, Buddy,” I said.

“Good bird.”

“Yes, you are.”

“I’m Buddy.”

“If I made the decisions, I’d let you into Crystal Cave, Buddy.”

“I love you.”

“You’re a good bird.”


Yes, I cheated. 😦

    A worthwhile cheat Michael! Plus a track by my all-time favourite singer/poet.

    Got off to a pretty rocky start, rolled over a couple of rough puns, but ended on an up note with Leonard Cohen.
    As Lawrence Welk used to say “PUNderful, PUNderful!” Humor to warm up a winter’s day, for sure!
