It appears that no one really likes the “Turnip Surprise.”

Phyllis Diller lives!
Good morning guys!
So, “turnip surprise” is a threatening dish. I wonder if Agate Aggie is going to stay for dinner. I suspect that she’s had turnip surprise before. I imagine it to be an old family recipe, even if the little terror doesn’t like vegetables.
For those who were impatient to get a long list of “loose ends” tied up, you can cross one more off your list — Agate Aggie has finally found time to go visit her sister and the rest of that family.
Oh no…..not THE BIG POT!!!!!
Guess Agate Annie survived the explosion.
Morning, Gweedo! Yeah, I see you do lots of posts……I can’t spare the time to scan my favs and make posts more than once a day, so I often don’t even have a chance to respond to the ones who respond to me. In light of that, I was still surprised how many posts I’ve made.Cheers,Blune.
Love it, as always, Pequod!“Gertie’s making supper, as any fool can smell.”
Trying to remember how many of B.O.‘s family we were introduced to over the years. <Maybe it’s time for Gertie’s! (Loved the recent strip where SHE said told life story with all HER siblings included!)
Pequod, you should publish your poems in concert with the corresponding comic
PQ, when the story starts getting slack, your Sunday recap does the trick! Thanks from most ALL of us! The guy under the bridge snoring doesn’t count, though!
Yes, indeed, put on the Big Pot, Gertie, ‘cause there’s company coming to dinner tonight, your fancy-nancy actress sister Annie!Turnips? —Ugh!
Nice one today, Pequod. Thanks, once again!
Gertie doesn’t seem too overjoyed to see her sister, does she?
Just a nice, quiet family get together! Oh and it seems like the taxi sign in the 2nd panel is drawn in an incorrect angle. Just saying.
Good morning everyone. Good to see Agate Annie again.
@Pequod77: you have out done yourself. A great way to start the week. Thanks for the poem.
Y’all have a prosperous day my friends.
I guess I’m the only one around here who likes turnips. Not too sure about the surprise part, though.
It’s Doctor Wakeman!!!
I love turnips, but I don’t think I would like a huge potfull.
Hmmm…time for the Nitrates I reckon?
Not If youre in Colorado, Washington or.. where was that other one again? I Forget? oh well.. pass the clip Gweedo lol
Oh yeah and before anyone chastises me.. I don’t read Jim Doherty’s weekly crimestoppers textbook entry either
Agate Aggie is sticking around town, what with the theatre in disarray and a cast member jailed. She didn’t stop by for the food, if she’s familiar with Gertie’s cooking. Blissfully ignorant of the Nitrates’ designs on her nest egg, this seems to be her first meeting with Lil’ Attitude. She may want to put those glasses back on, especially if they’re rose colored. The hospital staff saw more than enough of Lil’ Attitude in the delivery room.
Thanks to Tarry Plaguer, Night-Gaunt49, Gweedo, Neil Wick, cpalmeresq, Willy007, Bob, Morrow, davidf42, Starman1948 and mzkdad for the kind words (and picture). Very much appreciated!
Life is good at Sunny Dell Acres…I’ve always loved spending my Sundays there. Takes me back to 1947..when Sparkle was born..
Ok, this past week was cute, now on to serious business. And which sister is prettier? Annie or Gertie?
HAHA..Pequod, your rhymes always make me laugh! Thank you!
Re today’s Crimestoppers Textbook: I guess that Gene Roddenberry wasn’t the only LAPD officer to turn to screenwriting.
A rainy day, Gweedo. Perfect for my nightly stroll in the cemetery! I won’t be alone!
That’s where I met Rikki, Gweedo! She was strolling with Abner. They were searching for spiders.
Hold the presses! When did “Agate Aggie” become “Agate Annie”!? You’re falling down on the nitpicking job, avenger09!
Abner likes me. Gweedo. He said that he has plans for me!
Um, it is LEWISTOWN with a “W”, not Lewiston.
Look to see B.O. Plenty run around in the backyard
Chased by Lil’ Attitude, child rearing work is hard.
It sounds unkind but never mind, his face could stop a clock
A visitor comes calling, Aggie’s in for quite a shock.
The taxi didn’t stick around at Acres of Sunny Dell
Gertie’s making supper, as any fool can smell.
Vegetables and Attitude simply do not get along
Gertie’s chopping turnips and the kid’s just too headstrong.
He nearly runs down Aggie as he takes another lap
Should B.O. chase him long enough this shall end in a nap.
I’d run too if I were you, and smelt Turnip Surprise
I ate some from the big pot once, it made my bile rise.
Don’t blame the kid for taking flight from Gertie’s dinner table
