Finally! Checkmate atheists and vegetarians!

Meat-Shaped Stone And Jadeite Cabbage
Amusing Planet

What makes this piece of art so special is that the rock naturally looks like a piece of pork belly, with its layers formed by the accumulation of different impurities. The craftsman who made this took the rich natural resources of the stone and carved it with great precision, even rendering the pores, the wrinkles and dimples on the skin. The stone was then stained giving it a luscious, fleshy appearance.

It's only a rook. Just step to the side and it can't hurt you.

At least, I hope that's a rook.

Nope. Happens to me all the time too.

That's why I bothered to upload an avatar.

yaaabutt: you chose a bird brain. That doesn't stroke an ego at all. Please highlight your next recognition of personal brilliance. I'd like to bask in your light as well.

"Nope. Happens to me all the time too." /// Well..........that is funny. But we are looking for brilliance.

How about what I posted in the Limerick section?

The beast that's half fish and half duck,
(Poor thing, what a sad bit of luck!)
is named for the cry,
When the fish swims up nigh,
And the poor mother duck screams out "$#@%!"

Edit: And I know my dirty limericks are brilliant. It's been proven.

Back where I used to live, at my favourite restaurant, if the waitress didn't fill up my overpriced $2.50 cola, I would tip her a dirty limerick, such as the one above.

They all stopped filling my drinks because they preferred the limericks to the few measly dollars that was 15% of my one-person bill.

One of them spilled the beans to me, but this went on for months before that happened.

I tipped her a few measly dollars and a limerick.

What is the poor things name?

What is the poor things cry?

"Nigh"...has no context at all to make that word relevant.

Ducks don't scream.

Ducks don't make a sound like {!#%@}......it more of a quack.

Brilliant? All poetry/insight/brilliance has near zero to do with the rhyming scheme.

So, I'd give your composing another shot
To avoid your record having a blot
The waitresses will be happy
To Smile at you sappy
And no tips will be sought.

That's the joke. The Fish-Duck (which is not called a dish) is named for its mother's cry when the fish rapes her.

Nigh to the mother duck. You get more punch out of the last line in a limerick if it all comes together there.

Actually I'm not the first one to make the observation that ducks sound a bit like they're swearing.

"The fish rapes her..." //// Oh....I missed that part. Ok, I take all my critique back. No tip required.

Actually you ought to add some critique, since it seems I failed.

:frown:

At least, Joker would certainly say so.

yaaabutt: it was a limerick, not a joke. I criticized the limerick for its "structure" which is far removed from its humor. I smiled at the notion of a fowl mouthed duck.

Nice self deprecation there. Well done.

This failed to amuse me.
