Excuse Me, Sir, Can We Get Some More Bread?

I hope it goes right to their hips.

You expect me to bring you more bread after THAT lazy-ass caption?

    That pipe is sure to get clogged!

  2. I hope it goes to their hips too! More drumsticks 😛 …

  3. KatieAlso says:

    Only people named Katiesomething can post to this thread, apparently.

  4. I like ostriches. I do. They’re just totally cool. And stop calling me Katie.

  5. 260Oakley says:

    The definition of “rubber necking”

  6. ok wait. I need some perspective here… how big is that ostrich? or how big is the loaf of bread?

  7. Leaving now to change my name to Katie.

  8. GreyandWhite kitty says:

    I think Mr. Ostrich could use a hand. Looks like his bread is a little stuck. Bite size is always too big.

  9. Hmmm my new name shall be KatieAdventures

    That bread is gonna take a bit of time to clear the old pipes there

  10. Sarah-Jane says:

    This is cute, but in general I don’t like Ostriches. I went to Lion Country Safari as a child and I will never forget how agressive and viscious they are. Feathery velosa raptors they are. Put a crack in the glass windows on the car. Dude Where’s My Car? does not exagerate

  11. Is it on ostrich or an emu? It seem little and fuzzy for an ostrich. But might be a baby?

  12. I need some scale reference. 😐 El Birdo looks to me like it might be carrying a whole loaf of bread, but I can’t really tell. – Kateho

  13. earlybird1 says:

    “Yep, looks like ya got something wedged in yer U-bend there. Good thing ya called Plumrs R Us, we’ll get ‘er cleaned out.”

  14. Appears to be a semolina roll. Yum! Ostrich looks like he is saying “I need to make a sammich! Does anyone know where the Baconnaise is?”

    @ Katies: Is your name not Bruce? Mind if I call you Bruce?

  15. earlybird1 says:

    If Baconnaise truly exists, I must gets me some! What an inspired invention! *runs off to nearest grocery store*

  16. saffron… thanks! if it’s a roll, that makes more sense. if it was a loaf of bread – yikes! – that would have been one big boid!!

  17. Pimlico Plumbers are ready for any situation, but this!

  18. Hmm is my name short for Momkatie? Anyway, have you SEEN the hips on those guys? I mean, in comparison to those skinny birdlegs, WOW!

  19. Ah a rare photo of the Pygmy Long Necked Corn Catcher.
    These elusive beasties lurk in the underbrush amongst the corn fields, reaching out
    to snap up errant kernels of corn to line their nests. Unfortunately their body heat causes the kernels to expand, or “pop”, which then frightens them away. When they dare to return they find the “popped” corn has been scavenged by the Short Nosed Stubbed Toe Whistler. And thus the cycle begins anew as the Corn Catcher searches for more kernels for their nest.

    (what? it does sorta look like a kernel of corn :wink:)

  20. BeckyMonster says:

    I should change my name to KatieMonster!

  21. OOOOOOOO yes, Baconnaise exists! It’s great. Google it and you’ll find you can buy it online from a company whose entire line of stuff is BACON FLAVORED.

    It would help that roll to roll down more smoothly.

  22. Bit off more than it could chew, I see.

    [You know what’s a disturbing thought? …ostrich molars. 😡 – Ed.]

  23. Katiekye here…
    Wow, I sure hope that guy doesn’t swallow it whole. It’ll emulate the snake-and-rabbit look (I know, horrible thought).
    Hee… just picture it on him though. I feel a photoshop coming on.

  24. Baconnaise… omg, what a wonderful country we live in. I will say, that as a vegetarian of 10-plus years, bacon is one of the few things I honestly miss. And veggie bacon just ain’t the same!

  25. Von Zeppelin says:

    Actually the bird is only three inches tall, and that’s a very small piece of English toffee.

  26. omg!!! Baconaise is vegetarian! I am SO excited!
    (yes, I live a simple life)

  27. skippymom says:

    Baconnaise! Wow! Got to get some. Dreaming of a baconless BLT right now. Ceejoe, some years ago when I worked in the kitchen at a health-food store, I had to cook a couple of packages of veggie “bacon” (forget the brand name) each week. I thought it smelled awful, but one day out of curiosity I actually tasted a piece, and YECHH!!! immediately spit it out. Why bother?

  28. BeckyMonster says:


    Sometimes simple pleasures are the best! And I can’t imagine veggie bacon… sounds like a crime against humanity.

  29. victoreia says:

    VonZep, that’s one scary English Toffee!

  30. Jon Stewart said “Baconnaise, for people who want to have a heart attack, but are too lazy to get off their asses and make bacon.” :mrgreen:

  31. AuntieMame says:

    Hmm…KatieMame or AuntieKate? My middle name is “Kay.” Does that count?

    I hope that’s just a dinner roll, otherwise it’s gonna take a while to get through the U-bend so it can reach the ostrich’s hips.

  32. AuntieMame says:

    And LOL at Jon Stewart! I love bacon, but I am too lazy to get off my ass and make it. Bring on the baconnaise!

  33. Actually, it looks like a dinner roll that you can buy in bulk at Costco.

  34. @AuntieMame, if I could, I would arrange for someone or something (perhaps some Wallace-and-Gromit-like contraption) to just drop things into my mouth while I remain recumbent.

  35. Theresa, I will freely admit that I am indeed too lazy to make bacon. I mean, there’s the whole curing process and the time involved, not to mention what comes before that…yeah, too much work.

    [*facepaw* – Ed.]

  36. @Skippymom, I see what you did there. 😛 I do think that a fully vegetarian product that tasted exactly, but exactly, like bacon, would be a world-shattering discovery. A real Holy Grail, or Philosopher’s Stone.

  37. Baconnaise! I am fascinated by the direction of these string of comments!

    Sincerely, BirdKATEge

  38. Metz- delightful!

  39. PS If you check the Baconnaise website, it says there that they started the business with money won for an entry in America’s Funniest Home Videos. Really. That seems so right, somehow.

  40. Bacon Mayo.. Blech.. My poor heart hurts just thinking about it.. so does my tummy..
    I remember Colbert also talking about Baconnaise.. I think he asked them to stop sending him more of it.. 😀

  41. AND you can also buy bacon-flavored lip balm from those guys! Who among us is going to try that first?

  42. A profile of the the incredible Ostrich:

  43. @Luke, thanks for that, they are strangely charming. Was reminded of this:

  44. resriechan says:

    (Excuse me for interrupting) …but ….Skippymom:

    (with all love, affection blahblahblah)……Pourqoui on veut un “baconless BLT”?
    Qu’est ce que ca fait pour la vie ?

    If the bacon falls off your BLT, is it really there?

  45. Bacon flavored lip blam would NOT be a good idea if you own a dog, you know dogs and bacon, can’t you just picture it! 🙂

  46. AuntieMame says:

    I would totally wear bacon-flavored lip blam. (Thanks for the awesome typo, Gigi. LOL!)

    And bacon-scented perfume, too.

  47. AuntieMame says:

    Oh, and P.S. to Theresa: That would be really cool, but I’d be scared of something going down my trachea or up my nose. If I could be semi-perpendicular instead of fully recumbent, I’d be all over that.

    And instead of something mechanical, can I opt for something hunky and male instead? And shirtless? 😀

  48. Res, c’est parce qu’on ne veut pas manger les cochons, bien sur.

  49. @Resriechan if the bacon falls off my sandwhich then I would have to fight the cats for it Snicker

  50. Thank you Luke,Thank you,Theresa.

  51. I wanna pet that fuzzy neck! 🙂

  52. @Gigi,
    absolutely right! “Dog germs,” cried Lucy.
    KiraKatiegirl (That is my name)

  53. @AuntieMame, that would attract a lot of guys, lol
    Eau de Pizza

  54. To which kindly old Father Flynn intoned, “Thou gettest no bread with one meat ball.”

  55. I am also one who thought he looked like a bendy sink pipe! Glarghl! Gulp.

    Hey I really like the phrase “while I remain recumbent”…. I think I will use that one!

    And YES they are like feathery velosa raptors! Have you ever had the occasion to check out their feet??!!!

  56. JohnnieCanuck says:

    I think most hunks would be willing to do the hand-feeding fantasy thing as long as you cater some to their fantasies. Just remember, making them fry the bacon au naturel is abusive.

  57. Johnny – bake it in the oven on a cookie sheet, 400 degrees or so. Eliminates undercooked curled up fatty edges, and also the splatter effect from frying it.

    Just a tip!

    I wonder now, do they have bacon flavored ice cream?? Maybe I can lie recumbent while the bacon is in the oven and be fed (what?) — doritos or something.

  58. Sigh.
    I was hoping for Prongstroversy, where some nuffy would say ostriches shouldn’t eat processed bread products. Prongducts?

  59. Prongs is HIGH-larious. Where did she come from?

  60. Resriechan says:

    @ Skippymom & KittyAdventures:

    Et maintenant, le soleil s’enleve !!! Je comprends et je vous remercie. A moi, je prefere les Doritos Nachos. (Have we been in this neighborhood before? Are we about to start discussing the Tx State Fair & deep-fried Twinkies, now? I still have my notes, from last time, if anyone needs them ….

    @ Beth….er…um….perhaps t’other personal pronoun! ……ie a male biped rather than a female biped (& I only say this because we all frantically worried & “conversated” about it, until corrected “one rainy night in Georgia ” (tonight’s earworm, courtesy of the ducks at the Peabody Hotel — look ’em up) ….

  61. Queen of Dork says:

    skippymom: Kate of Dork here. Bacon flavored lip balm? Blech! I guess that would kind of be like rubbing the bacon grease left in the pan on your lips? Yucky!

    The ostrich is GORGEOUS! Beautiful feathers!!

  62. Resriechan says:

    @ Kiragirl: guys, pwah !!! I, meself, might pick up a bottle of Eau de Pizza.

    (Yeah, I know, I got NO shame; hangs head to APPEAR embarrassed to the onlookers)

    Chef “Boy” -ardee

  63. Resriechan says:

    HEY QoD!! I just emailed yer regular thinggie (minds outta the gutter, folks!!)

    [Awww, gutter’s fun. 😦 – Ed.]

  64. Resriechan says:

    @ Ed: Oh!! Sorry — didn’t intend to prevent yer fun.

    Jus don’t want it seemin’ like I’M there. Swim & enjoy then!!

    [Oh no, NATURALLY not that, we’d never assume, dearie me no indeed – Ed.]

  65. Resriechan says:

    PS: I just realized another Musical Film Reference for the Ostrich & his bread….AND I’m pretty sure that it’s from Dickens, so that pleases another segment o’ CuteOverloaders:


    “Please, Sir, May I have some more?” asked Oliver

  66. Resriechan says:

    @ Ed x2:

    Awwww………Can’t a gal have a BIT of Denial/ De Nile????

    “Nudge, nudge, wink, wink!”

  67. Queen of Dork says:

    Ed: Gutter’s not so much fun when you’re bowling though.

    [*D’oh* – Ed.]

  68. happyKate here…i (and my sweetie) do the whole make bacon thing, start to finish…javelina makes very non-fatty bacon; haven’t tried feral hog yet; might have more fat on it than javelina. We had pronghorn steak tonight; elk planned for tomorrow and the veggies from the garden are almost all gone…until we planted a garden I had no idea potatoes could taste so good!

  69. Resriechan says:

    Good one, QoD !!

  70. Queen of Dork says:

    Baconnaise. Hmmmmmm. This is a new concept to me and I REALLY wish I had thought of making it first. It sounds good. It would be great on the potatos pulled from Happycat’s (HappyKate’s) garden. We must schedule a pot luck….

  71. Resriechan says:

    (yaAAAAAAAWWWWWWN- with a hand over me mouth, ‘o course)

    QoD: I’m gwine tuh go to Snoooooozeville. Sorry we din’ have much time to communicate. When I’m done tomorrow afternoon, at about 2 pm Florida time, I’ll come by the Computer Lab then & write your email for a little while.

    My brain (such as it is) wants to “stay & play” but the Yawn Police have arrested me.

  72. Resriechan says:

    @ Ed’s : hope yer night is…..(I’m too sleepy to come up w/ a punchline)
    Just Fine.

    ZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZzzzzzzzHonkShuHonkShu (repeat as necessary)

  73. just got back from a snow patrol concert in oakland, ca. and this posting gave me the munchies…. whoever came up w/ baconnaise is theriouthly amazing. i totally want some!


  74. it is so cute
