Love them all but Capricorn, Intersect and Pumpkin may be my faves. They inspired eye rolling grins. Grazie!

Are these original? Or did you find them somewhere?

In any event ... clever, clever, clever. And funny! Lot of imagination in play.

Donna: We aim to please.....

Nan: There's more where these came from -- see the link at the end. Yep, they're all original with me, except for a few in one of the earlier posts (I always give credit).

The Carrot one is my favorite of this bunch. These were all good though.

Apparently the vegetable references are a hit -- I'll remember that when I do the next compilation.

Thanks everyone!

Actually, Japanese would have even more potential for this kind of thing -- but I agree, most languages wouldn't.
