lovely take on the prompt.
Oh thanks LaTonya! 😀
If someone said that to me,I think my head would explode.
Fortunately, reading it just makes my eyes bleed.
Is orange peel absorbent?
Hahaha! I think I’ve make 37’s head explode inside his skull (kind of like throwing up in your mouth) every time I bring it up! And I bet orange peels are absorbent. I used to used them to bite into to see how much more crooked my teeth gotten since the last time I ate an orange. But then I got braces, so I had to say goodbye to that little piece of fun. It was bittersweet.
It wasn’t me!
Haha! Are you sure? I have a hidden blog camera . . . .
Wait a min. no apples?
Haha! Well you know what happened to the apples, Bucky!
Quite apeeling 🙂
Haha! Your comment has zest!! 😀
oranges like all fruit
need to be eaten in segments
a piece at a time
i mentioned you in my blog yesterday!!
Summers! This is fantastic! And its the segments that make oranges way cooler than apples! 😀
And thank you for mentioning me in your blog. Now I have to run right over there (I’m so vaiin!!) 😀
Orange you clever? 😉
yellow lemon peel
slurp down florida orange juice
grapefruit is left out
I love your comment!
Slurping is my favorite thing!
Grapefruit is stupid!
Orange you glad this hakui want about bananas?
You are so clever mummy dearest!
Oh thank you my darling Jackie Girl. And the”Orange you glad I didn’t say banana.” punchline does justice to the English language like no other punchline!
Clever and well done
You always do interesting
Maybe you will win
Ha ha ha ha Lance!
With my haiku skills no way!
But thank you anyway!!
Now that is a pretty neat trick, Linda! You are so clever!!
Oh thanks Valerie!
Wow! “Someone times them by zero”.
That line got me excited. How come we always associate multiplication with increase? You’ve just made me realise that certain multiplication can make things disappear.
Great Haiku! 🙂
It really can! A friend of my daughter had a boss that was making her life miserable. She multiplied her by zero in her mind and her boss moved to South Africa! It really works and it’s very powerful! 😀
Orange is an ugly color
Especially on my big head
Clariol gone very wrong
LOL! Ha ha!
Red can be pretty iffy!
There is nothing to get excited about in this haiku. 🙂 Oranges are my favourite fruit…….in case you were looking for some inane trivia about me and my life.
I was! August 31st is my official inane trivia day! Thanks for making it special Cobbie’s world!! 😀
I loved this – it made me think!
Ah! So glad you liked it Freya!
Don’t you just hate it when math gets in the way of good eatin’? This is amusing work. Thank you for linking up!
Hahaha! My new thing to hate: Math getting in the way of good eating! 😀
Nice! Did you at least have some grapefruit? 🙂
Unfortunately I had to settle for Spam that had been divided by 5. Sigh . . .
oh that IS unfortunate…especially if your opinion of spam is as low as mine!
Ha! Well how much lower can my opinion of Spam get? The answer is none lower.
Always clever and fun! Orange is my favorite color and I love the math sprinkled in (love math too).
I enjoyed the haiku, but reading all the puns in this comment stream just topped it off. 😉
Haha! Yes indeed! think they they are all college pun majors!
Hahaha very clever. You must know the Williams Carlos Williams poem?
This Is Just To Say
by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
Haha! I’ve never heard it before. Thanks for sharing it, Kymm!. Now I think I’ll go see if there’s a nice cold plum in the the icebox. And if there isn’t, I’ll know who to blame! 😀
They didn’t disappear though did they?! We know where they went!
If I went over to Babbage Enterprises and looked in the window would I see them?
Your unanswerable question answer is there!
*running over now and pressing my nose against the glass* I don’t see anything . . . only fog. . .
I know a very fine cataracts surgeon who can help you.
This post had a lot of a peel. It was also a great nostalgia trip for us old math majors.
I remember a kid in my 8th grade math class who gave a report on Zero. I think it went like this, in its entirety:
Zero is not positive. Zero is not negative. Zero is zero.
Which prompted the teacher to say, “It will also be your grade.”
Now there’s irony for you, eh, what??? : P
LOL! I love that teacher and I can see why you’ve remembered that all these years. I just think it’s so fascinating that you’re a mathematician, Mark. That is just so impressive! Numbers and I could just never come to any kind of an agreement. I’d say the answer was one way and they always disagreed. I could never convince them of anything!!
I”m so glad this post had a lot of a peel. Orange you glad you stopped by? I am!!
