E is for Entertaining Edible

Here in the country, we take our fun where we find it, and yesterday I found it in the produce section of the grocery store. It was in the form of what Terry Pratchett would call A Humorous Vegetable.

“Quack, quack,” says the sweet potato!

My life is either very dull or, depending on how you want to look at it, filled with wonder.

Let me remind you that, at midnight tonight, Pacific Standard Time, TURTLE FEATHERS will be free until 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time. It will be free Every Friday of April.

WRITING PROMPT: The duck talks. What does it say? Other than, “Quack.”



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Did you know there is a wandering whistling duck which lives in Australia, the Philippines, Borneo, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands? He doesn’t quack.

    I feel sure a sweet potato would tweet!

    A potato that’s long, red and sweet,
    if it could talk it would tweet,
    but a sweet potato
    wants to be ate so
    it’s gone – let’s hope it doesn’t repeat…

    That is my favourite vegetable. Thank goodness it wasn’t a piece of poop. It does look like a duck or a dragon. What would it say? “Please don’t eat me! Tell me a joke instead. It would quack me up!”

    Hey- I’ve seen worse decoys! I’m trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. Well, I’m trying to leave you a comment but your spam detector doesn’t like me. Sorry, I’m not going to write a book about the sweet potato, no matter how lovely it is. Quack.
