1029. Surprise!

Front lawn -
he awakens to find forty
pink flamingos.

Link with 1028: Artificial.

[I'm not sure how widespread this is but here you can rent pink flamingos from a local firm for celebrating someone's birthday. The company sets them up on the lawn and they remove them at the end of the following day. A prank is to order them for a friend when it isn't his/her birthday.]

Oh yes, it happens down here, too. :)

floots said...

if you see flamingos on the lawn
do you eyes come out on storks :)
(sorry - just got up - best i can do)

I woke up to 30 purple ones.
Not for my birthday.
It was a fund raiser for court appointed advocates for children involved in either abuse or neglect.

I keep thinking I'm going to become one.

I'm glad you explained the pink flamingos. Makes sense now. :)

polona said...

i haven't heard of this before... thanks for the explanation - the senryu makes sense now :)

Aurora: I know. :-)

Andrew: Hoot, eh?

Floots: *lol* Very good (esp. for that early).

Pamela: I was beginning to wonder...after all, your new photo-icon-thingy is sorta pink. :-)

John: Thanks.

Beaman: ...pleasure.

Polona: It appears the notes are vital for the understanding of some of my obscure ku. :-)

So, miracles do happen ... in the shallows of our lives!?:)

Better than waking up to 40 real flamingos on your yard. What a mess!!

Masago said...

Borut: For some they do. :-)

Pat: Ha! Now that'd be something!
