FSOTD: Maggoty Bread!

So it's time for me to post another Funny Story of the Day (FSOTD). First, you have to know that we are big Lord of the Rings fans. Jeremy has finished reading "The Hobbit" and has begun "The Fellowship of the Ring," but the children are too young to have seen the movies. Susan and I are gearing up to see them again this holiday weekend. What the children know better is the Veggie Tales version called "Lord of the Beans." It has many similar lines and themes as the Rings movies. "Scary-man" instead of "Sauron," "Sporks" (half spoon, half fork) instead of "Orcs," etc...

One prominent thing that carries over from one of the Rings movies word-for-word is the Sporks/Orcs saying "We ain't had nothing to eat but maggoty bread for three stinkin' days." It cracks me up every time!

Well, one day this week, the girls (3 and 6) are playing in my office (a.k.a. the play room), and they are working in the play kitchen making --- maggoty bread!

--"Hello Sarah, would you like some maggoty bread?"
--"Oh! Yes, I love maggoty bread!"

--"What's for dinner mama? "
--"Maggoty bread"
--"Yum! Yum! Maggoty bread!"

They had me totally cracking up!
