It’s important to do your weeding and gardening with style.

Weed it and weep.
Jason! You’re not supposed to be the first commenter 😉
I got up at 6:40 am (German time) just to be first. Well, back to bed. Zzzzzzzz 🙂
LOL Dave , you lose.
You deserve some extra wine gums for that, Dave. Okay, gummy bears.
There’s a little shop in Berlin that makes their gummy bears from scratch if anybody needs to get me some 🙂
Perhaps Binky can pick you up some if his rocket flights take him over Germany.
I rather like being first.
I always try to be first in line for the treats!
Could I eat it and weep instead?
If you’re eating weeds, you just might.
I would like to be first one of these days too 🙂
You have to get up early like me Andro!
I will have to try that idea Fraz 🙂
Maybe it’d be better if you just stayed up really late!
Weeds don’t sound like they’d taste very good, though.
Does Chris talk with one of those Canadian accents where Wedding sounds like Weeding?
I mean, what’s that all a boot.
Don’t you mean “what’s that all a boot, eh”
I believe it’s the British who like their boots instead of a trunk.
Oops, thanks for the correction Loon. 🙂
We are accent free up here in the Great White North. It’s only others that mangle the English language with an accent.
Bwahaha! Sure you are. I live a place where ppl mangle the language as a hobby.
Do they still call that English down there?
They do. I call it “redneck”.
Redneck and purple toes probably 🙂
I resemble that remark.
I won’t tell anyone!
Not really, Bo. You can write the language just fine. 🙂
I worked with a Canadian once when I was 20.
We were putting tube water slides together and I was the unlucky one of being put inside it.
He kept telling me to move the tube oooot!
I asked him if he was okay.
Me: Are you okay?
I told him I thought he said ouch. I thought he hurt himself.
He then proceeded to make fun of my Oklahoma accent.
That was kind of jerky.
This site changed my view of Canadians.
Glad to know there are plenty of Canadians/wombies who are good folk 🙂
PS: A French Canadian performed the sonogram of my son last year… in Oklahoma. Really nice guy.
Geez, now that you know my life story we should probably send each other Christmas cards or something…
Thanks for your resume. I’ll let you know if you get the job.
Yeah, we Canadians can be as good or as bad as just about anyone. I think the accent you’re talking about is from down east, Nova Scotia and those parts. “Eh” is pretty much standard throughout the country. Typical Canadian talk would be something like this:
“When you’re out, pick me up a double-double, a pack of timbits, and a two-four, eh?”
With your example I have no idea what you said.
We like to speak like that around Americans to confuse you.
A double-double is a coffee with double cream and double sugar. Timbits are basically doughnut holes from Tim Hortons, our leading doughnut & coffee shop. A two-four is a 24 case of beer.
I think I’d rather weed with the Wombies.
Especially if there’s treats to eat!
The wedding did not have a buffet?
The wedding did, but the weeding didn’t. We need to fix that!
I’ll send over some fudge, brownies, cake, donuts, wines gums, milkshakes, chocolate ice cream pies, cookies, spam burgers, spam cakes, spam, spam, and more spam. 😉 🙂
That’ll make it the best weeding ever! Thanks Deb!
lol and look at Winky tie and a shovel well done 😆
I tried to dress for the occasion!
-is Fraz holding a magic rocket in hand, to take him out of there if things get out of hand !
-and are the pots made of chocolate?
-is Chris wearing a chocolate wig?
wow there are so many things I want to know.
Fraz had a pair of orange scissors. He probably did want to leave, though!
No, the pots weren’t made of chocolate. I tried them.
Chris’s hair isn’t made of chocolate either. If it was, he’d be bald by now!
I think it should depend on the weeding occasion.
Some weeds can be kind of formal looking.
Unless it is one of those earthy weddings
I don’t know what an earthy wedding is. Is that where someone marries a hill?
And eats the bouquet.
I’ve heard some flowers are actually tasty!
Weeding, Wedding…there may not be much of a difference.
Yeah, I don’t think I like either one.
Chris is getting a bit agitated on this one Winky, I don’t think that he is eating enough chocolate 🙁
Chris never eats enough chocolate! I don’t know what’s wrong with him!
He needs wine gums for breakfast or at least twenty pancakes to set him up for the day 🙂
Chris never eats enough. Maybe I’ll have to trick him into eating them.
That will be a neat trick Winky 🙂
I think Winky should just give Chris’s chocolate to me!
I’ll take weeding over a wedding any day.
Except for those really hot days.
Oh! And the days it rains.
Gardening is more fun than getting married.
But weddings have some really good treats!
yeah and people marry for treats and then the treats disappear and all we are left with are weeds …..oh I am going to write a very sad dark poem about a Zombie who married and then horrible things happened like he was killed
That sounds like one of our zombies! We have lots of zombies around here. You can have some of ours if you need any for ideas or anything.
I have arranged for ten Zombies to try suits on, just in case Soma needs them for later, one of them is said to be as handsome as Brad Pitt, so he must resemble Frankenstein or something 🙁 Eeeeuw
Maybe you could give Soma more zombies. Like all of them!
If Soma wants them she
can have the whole horde 🙂
I sure hope she wants them! There’s way too many of them around here!
Blast! I hope all those pots are returnable! Maybe the wombies will get store-credit, at least.
We could give some potted plants as wedding gifts!
I wonder how the DJ’s are at formal weedings… or is there a live band?
There wasn’t a band, but there should have been. That would make weeding a lot more fun!
Sometimes they just get confused. Okay often they do. Bwahahahahahahahaha.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Life is very confusing! That’s why I like to eat chocolate. It soothes the soul.
Well, you can throw the weeds instead of rice!
Dandelions are pretty!
A bit of wedding weeding can
be fun too, if all the guests join in 🙂
We could get a lot more weeding done that way!
Frazzie looks SO dashing in his tie! But maybe he should clean his ears a little more often. 😉
Twink tells me I don’t listen, but that’s just because she’s always telling me stuff I don’t want to hear!
And change his socks too, well that’s if he ever wears them 🙂
My socks don’t stink! Yours do!
No they don’t 🙁 lol
I think they do!
I disagree with Twink. I always weed in a suit.
Your weeds are probably more important than mine.
Stop weeing in your suit Tony or
we might have to fit a diaper 🙁 lol
With this dandelion I thee wed…
Is that from The Dandelion Wedding movie? I never saw that.
No it’s from four dandelions
and a rose bush 🙂 lol
I don’t know that movie either. It sounds like something Twink might have watched.
Maybe it was called Thirty
Pancakes and Big Spoon of Honey 🙂
That sounds like something I’d like to watch! Or eat!
P.S. My comment reply notification plugin is working again. I reactivated to try it, the Save changes button on the settings page won’t work for some reason but the notification service does seem to work now.
Well that’s good to hear. Thanks for letting me know, Tony. I should probably try it again.
Hey forget the weeds and give them chocolate.
That would be a lot better!
Lol! Loved the confusion here! 🙂
Thanks, Indrani. The Wombies do get confused a lot.
Oh. Formal weeding. Oops.
Some weeds like to be treated well.
Oh I love these guys 🙂 would love to help out 😉
You could help us weed any time you want! I don’t really like weeding.
Somebody needs to de-weed their ears!
awww the wombies are invited!!! 🙂 Ahah omg… the cake… they’re gonna eat everything!!!
They always eat everything Cha 🙁 lol xxxx
We’ll leave all the sprouts for you Andro! Well I will anyway!
Good, I like sprouts 🙂
You’re right, Andro! Do you think they ate the bride and groom figurines too? ahahh
They were chocolate!
Just the chocolate, cake, candies, desserts, and milkshakes. And the pizza, if there is any!
You should have consulted the caterer’s menu before you agreed to go! If there is not going to be good food… see, kinda boring weddings are.
If it wasn’t for the food, I wouldn’t go at all! I don’t think anyone would!
From a non native…wedding and weeding looks the same. I don’t blame Winky at all
Me neither Miss. Novia 🙂 xxxx
I know! They shouldn’t have two words like that that are almost the same!
To add more pain, try tree and three or quite and quiet. Oh the trouble in English never stop!
English is pretty confusing to me, too! Maybe I should learn Wombat instead.
how do you call the language? wombatian?
I just call it Wombat. I don’t know how to speak Wombat, though. Maybe if I find some wild wombats I could ask them to teach me.
Well, at least it suited one of the wombies well. 🙂
Yeah, I was all suited up and no weeds to grow! Or pull.
Well I’m late to the party, again, as usual so I guess I missed the weeding and the wedding. I might as well just go fishin’. My wife told me the mower needs fixin’….I thought she said “You need to go fishin’.” I get in a lot of trouble like that too.
Fixing and fishing could easily be the same word! And one is a lot more fun than the other!
Oh, and the wedding wasn’t really much fun. Just boring. Good treats, though!
You know…strangely enough…as the comic strip was loading, I looked at your little entry at the bottom and thought I saw wedding..re read it again and realized it said weeding..hehehe.
See, it’s not just me! Weeding and wedding are just too close!
Mhmm!! At least you didn’t read it as something inappropriate like…never mind..hehehe
Oh, just small misunderstanding 😉
Words shouldn’t be so similar!
I like how they’re all ready to roll for the formal weeding. Wombats are good sports.
We are when there are treats involved!
