Fibbing Friday — Mixed Bag

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Di’s turn to host and here are her questions.

1. What is an ant farm?

It’s the place where parents tell their young kids that ants go when they die.

2. What is a flea market?

It’s where you go to buy fleas — fried, chocolate covered, baked, etc. The make very high in protein, crunchy snacks.

3. What was the War of the Roses about?

It was about two competitive rose growers in a small town who ended up destroying each other’s rose bushes.

4. If they’d been invented at the time, what car would Robin Hood have driven?

A Pierce-Arrow.

5. What are pieces of eight?

Parts for a simple children’s puzzle with eight pieces.

6. Where would you find a clapper?

In the audience.

7. What is a cowlette?

A baby cow.

8. What is chicken wire used for?

Hanging newly beheaded chickens by their claws to let the blood drain out.

9. What is a toady?

A baby toad.

10. What is a nail file?

It’s a tool cabinet with drawers where nails are stored, sorted by size.

    I like your answer (and it might come in handy someday if I am blessed with grandchildren), but I’m pretty sure an aunt farm is where the aunts of handmaidens can retire or be put away. That’s my tale, and I’m sticking to it.

      I looked it up. In the standard dictionary, and in knitting, it’s like a scarf but all connected in the round (I think it needs to have a narrower side to be snuggled at the actual neck but to be wider for the top of the shoulders or even down over the shoulders); I then made the association of a cowl-neck sweater (although I’ve never had to spell that before). I also saw, in the urban dictionary now, that one of the definitions there is actually what Fandango said (no fibbing). The other definition there is basically the opposite of an altruistic person, but specifically female.
