We need to talk; I’ll try to use short words.

Allow me to list the reasons that explain why naming me “Pot Pie” is offensive….

Larry Melman, C. Kirby



  1. And right here… I have spliced the DNA of a chicken with a psychiatrist.

  2. Flutterby says:

  27. Gretchen says:

    You might want to check out the Three Chicks a Day blog, in which a photographer adopts three chicks and takes photos of them every day as they grow older. The chicks’ names are Pot Pie, Salad Sandwich, and Noodle Soup. And no, he does not eat them….nor does he have any plans to, so far as I know.

  58. Queen of Dork says:

    Theo: I would like one please, with an umbrella. *presents ID*

  59. I gasped with delight when I saw this fuzzy little chick.

  60. “But I couldn’t eat you if I didn’t think it was funny.”

  61. Melinda says:

    asshat…hehe! When I was a kid I was in a photo shoot for some spring thing for the local newspaper, and was asked to hold some baby chickens. I’ll tell you, they’re cranky. Peck peck peck. Those little peeps were not having any of that handling, so I ended up just watching them walk out of a brown paper bag. They were cute, though.

  62. Amazing hovertext – I didn’t LOL, I guffawed-out-loud. Well played!

  63. marthava says:

    @M – GOL

  64. Noelegy says:

  65. happycat says:

    Theo: Hhere’s my ID; I’d love one of your concoctions. O NO, shall we all retire to the Snickering Lounge? Or are we already there…?

  66. What an expression of that chick! Like he knows fate will not be kind. Frighteningly ansdorable find Prongs…fyi I saw the words before the pic and knew it was U!

  67. I am always smiling when I pull up this blog and see the great animal photos! love it!

  68. 😆 Hello there, Chicken-Catch-A-Tor-E 😆 (I have no idea how to spell that name)

  69. Where’s the monocle and top hat? It looks like it should have a monocle and a top hat. It’s THAT disapproving.

  70. SoCalSis says:

    Pounce, I was thinking more along the lines of oversized horn-rimmed glasses, a la Wally Cox… The monocle and top hat belong to Mr. Peanut, and everyone knows what a party guy HE is!

  71. what a cute thing to do

  72. Tee-hee-hee @ use of the term “ass-hat” 🙂

  73. Awww, what a cute little unprocessed nugget! 😉

    Chickens are so freaking adorable, especially the babies. I wish I could have one for a pet.

  74. soicanvote says:


  75. I face that kind of disapproval from chicks all the time…

  76. whiskers says:

    roflmao at the hovertext!

    @Theo, An umbrella type? No…you’re all hardcore shots of scotch, hold the water, hold the rocks, hold the umbrellas… riiiiiiight… 🙂

    [Well, maybe the occasional Guinness or Newkie. 😉 – Ed.]

  77. The original, I think…

  78. Queen of Dork says:

    Daniel: Hahahaha! That was funny! Poor thing. Here’s a {{hug}} from this chick. (me). 🙂

  79. Mmmm…. chicken pot pie. Now I’m hungry, CO!

  80. Cacciatore.
    It’s Italian for “hunter-style” and usually means that it’s sauteed with onions and bell peppers. And it would be a great name for one of those fancy chickens with the foot feathers, wouldn’t it?

  81. Queen of Dork says:

    Hey guys: A bit off the subject here but Spring has for sure sprung and one of the things around here in the desert that comes with that is wasps. I just made and hung my annual wasp deterent thing in my back yard. This consists of a brown paper bag stuffed with other bags so it resembles a hive. Wasps are very territorial so if you hang up one of these “hives,” they think the area is spoken for and they move elsewhere! I hang mine on my fence although up in the eaves of the house is good, too. I’ve found that this works quite nicely. Of course, it needs to be changed over the course of the wasp season as wind and rain can tatter it.

  82. I have chickens and my mom named her 2 cordon and bleu. It’s mean spirited but so funny. We just get eggs so they won’t become actual cordon bleu.

  83. Queen of Dork says:

    Crap! And Oh No! I was all having a nice day in the yard. I decided to clean, fill and hang the hummingbird feeder. Everything was rainbows and kitten whiskers, (la-la-la-la-laaaa. *skipping*) until I tried to turn the feeder upside down to hang it. The bottom wasn’t on securely so all of the liquid spilled out onto the patio! So now there’s a huge, sugary mess which will for sure attract ants and probably wasps and killer bees! Shoot! I don’t have a hose so I tried to swoosh it off the patio with containers filled with water. What a mess. (I’m screwed). 😦

  84. Queen of Dork says:

    P.S. Stupid gravity. *grumble* 😯

  85. Barbie Cute 🙂

  86. Suzanne Blake says:

    You really are superb with captions. You should get paid somewhere for this amazing skill.

    [Like, oh, say, at Cute Overload? Just for instance? – Ed.]

  87. Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!! we need 2 name her!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. my uncle named his pig pork chop……and he did eventually become pork chops…..and tenderloin and back ribs and a couple stews and burgers too…….poor pork chop 😦

  89. LovesDogs says:

    Mr. McGrumpy – hmmph.

  90. It’s the same list for a rabbit named Stew.

    Which is what my father named my pet rabbit when I was 6.

  91. I’m two days late to the party here but I used to have a pet chicken named Dumplin.

    what’s a mcnugget?
