Get Stirred

Get Stirred

“The sea is everything; a place where a man is
never lonely, for he feels the stirring on all sides.”
--Jules Verne.

Do not stir the slumbering Kraken,
for it will slice your guts into bacon.

Don’t be a cur,
and end up in stir.

Donut dough must be stirred
for twenty-five minutes.

Never stir up a wasp nest.
unless you’re wearing a HazMat suit.

Good point about that wasp nest. We don't know how big those creatures are in the deep either.

I will never be able to think about Kraken without rhyming it with bacon ever again. And, yes, I do think about the Kraken a surprising amount.

Great reminder that some things are better left unstirred!

I laughed my head off...especially at the last line!! (It sounded hilarious in the voice of my mac speech app- I listen to most of my work this way.) Good instructions, Glenn :) :)

This crack about the kraken had me laughing. Especially rhyming it with bacon. Such a delightful invitation to laugh and poke fun at so many things!

Excellent pieces of advice. I love that you strung these very different ideas together and accomplished so much in only 44 words.
