Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Thanks for the Grub!

"Dear Lord, bless this carrot, and its sweet, sweet orangey goodness, that thou hast seen fit to deliver unto us this day; and bless also my dear wife Mabel and our fourteen children, most of whom look like me; and my sister Enid, even though she moved to the colony in the nicer part of town and won't talk to us anymore; and ..."

And the people did feast upon the lambs, and sloths, and carp, and anchovies...

And thou shalt hurl thy holy . . . carrot . . . at thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:06 AM

Please pass the emory board, or is this guy going to shred some carrot for some cole slaw?

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:08 AM

Saying grace for his daily nom.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:08 AM

And the Lord did grin...

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:11 AM

NTMTOM, you have a gift. I'm just not sure how to define the gift.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:14 AM

I love this cute widdle guy, but...repost? I know I've seen him somewhere before.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:15 AM

First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.

PS Prairie dog or ground hog? What is the difference, anyway?

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:19 AM

Theresa: BWAH HA HA!

Didn't they also feast upon the fruit bats? Love the little tiny ears. Note the contrast between the meek expression and fearsome claws symobolizing the Church Militant.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:28 AM

Don't forget about the fruit bats!

I don't know if he's praying...he's got that "Hey Baby I'm gonna nom you all over" look.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:42 AM

My gerbils' eyes look exactly the same way when they are enjoying treats -- a kind of mostly closed semi-circle eye. I call them 'u u' eyes.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 06:57 AM

I think you might have the wrong prayer, NTMTOM. That's clearly a kosher carrot. "Baruch atah Adonai Elohenu, Melekh ha-olam. . ."

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:00 AM

..and orangutans...

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:02 AM

adorable pic. hovertext cracks me up.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:05 AM

Give us this day our daily... Carrot!
On the 8th day, the Lord created Cute, and He looked, and He saw that it was good

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:13 AM

Von Zeppelin- very niiiice.
Theresa- I have said this before and I'll say it again-I think we are cut of the same bolt of cloth.
"Five is right out" is a very popular phrase here in "Corgiworld."

Oh, everyone *snerk*,*snerk*,*snerk*,

Anner, are you there?

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:24 AM

...and breakfast cereal...

Rub-a-dub-dub, thanks for the grub...I just heard this last night on a Family Guy episode. haha Funny I hear it here this morning.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:53 AM

...or I guess I should say, "see it here this morning."

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:54 AM

Blessed are the cheesmakers.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:57 AM

No, you're all wrong. That's an XBox controller; he's playing Halo 3, the "Vegan Vengeance" mod. Doesn't look like he's doing too well, either, from his expression.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 08:03 AM

@Eastie: I remembered the line "Rub-a-Dub-Dub, Thanks for the Grub!" from a snippet of "The Simpsons" that played on a recent PBS documentary about comedy. It was Bart's attempt to say grace, and I just thought it was really cute.

Three, sir!


 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 09:10 AM

'Way back, when I was knee-high to a mosquito, and I was at some camp or other, I heard grace said like this, and the response was "Yay, God." And so, righteous chillun's, may we have a "yay, God." from the congregaysh?

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 09:44 AM

Could the "Yay, God" come from an episode of "A Different World"? I recall the character Freddie (Cree Summer) sitting with her friends at the hospital after someone( I don't recall who) was involved in an accident and she wanted to do something to help, but didn't know how to pray. She said her family occasionally prayed for special meals/occasions and that was the prayer she offered in the waiting room and ended it with "Yay, God".

Weird how memories are trigged isn't it?

Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, this guy's cute!

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 10:36 AM

Now I want to see him eat the carrot, corn-on-the-cob style.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 10:55 AM

This pic kinda reminds of the post-war Scarlett, so hungry she gnaws on a root and declares, "As Gawd as mah witness, Ah'll never go hungry again!"

Rockin' the narrative and hovertext once again, NTMTOM! Sterling work.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 11:04 AM

No, no, no. The cute, betaloned rodent is actually just a really, really bad magician. This is his "telekenetic levitation" act he hopes will dazzle the crowd at the Magic Dam. It won't. He won't be asked back. He'll go into blackjack dealing, where he will, on occasion, perform card tricks as he shuffles the new shoe.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 11:10 AM

On second thought, Tom is right. It's a pre-nom pray.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 11:11 AM

I never think that I shall see,
A carrot quite as lovely as thee,
A carrot who, when picked will wear,
A wreath of green flowing like hair,
It's true that God can make a tree,
but He also made you just for me.
(munches delicately)
"Oh, I say, rather good. A light crunch with a delicate grassy hint, and a touch of insouciant tang. I must go back to that patch more often."

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 11:29 AM

Give me strength Oh Lord I pray,
Help me eat a carrot each day.
Stay my clawrs from cookie jars
Tempt me not with choklit bars.

(Akshally, I think, he's spotted a hair in his salad. I'm seeing a wee gag reflex there.)

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 11:41 AM

@MEGarde: It's the gift of being AWESOME and I agree.

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 12:01 PM

Ohhh, dang it! Everyone beat me to the orangutans and breakfast cereals part!

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 12:16 PM

In grad school, my best pal and study buddy was Jewish (I'm Catholic), and she startled me one day when we stopped studying for dinner, and she blurted out, "God's Neat, Let's Eat!" It still cracks me up. Cute rodent, too.

@NTMTOM: Now that you mention it, I do remember seeing a Simpsons episode with Bart saying that. I thought it sounded familiar. Definitely cute!

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Or, if you forget to pray before your meal, there is always the after-dinner prayer:

Bless the Lord, oh my soul
And all that is within me.


 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 12:57 PM

pyrit and b-babysitter: excellent prayer samples.

NTMTOM, will you marry me?

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 03:27 PM

AuntieMame -gotta remember that one, especially if I'm dining with a priest (not as rare as you might think - I volunteer at my church a lot, and sometimes "crash" the dining hall...). LOL loudly!

Boomer's Babysitter
 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:17 PM

Oh, and Harriet... there's several peeps who've spoken up for him before you. He might start requesting bio's and pictures. Just a head's up...

 |  Jan 16, 2009 at 07:19 PM

AuntieMame: That's the best thing I've heard all day!

I know a lot of Biblical jokes.

There are the single women's Bible verses. (One each, depending on your point of view.)

1. If any man will come after me, let him.


2. I would not have you, ignorant brethren.
