Upon hearing that he is vegetarian, the maitre de turns him out on the street and he is snubbed by all respectable Frenchman for cruelty to carrots.

Unlikely reason to believe in the idea that vegetables have feelings.

You've been brainwashed by a swede.

An unlikely reason for owning a hockey stick.

You're trying to save money on gas.

Unlikely reason to steal a bicycle.

It makes a good prop for your tomato plants.
I've actually known people who use old broken hockey sticks for exactly that purpose.  ;D

The kid's car you were going to steal wouldn't start.

Unlikely reason to use a hockey stick for a plant stake.  :)

We all played soccer. Not used to having sticks in our games. ;)

There is something seriously wrong with both your eyes and your mind such that a stick the width of your arm, bolted to a tiny plant, seemed like the only logical approach to take.

An unlikely reason for playing hockey with a beanpole.

All of the hockey sticks were out in the tomato garden

Unlikely hockey team mascot


(Hey, Mark - I'm a vegetarian AND I live in the barbecue capital of the world.  It's not easy being green ;) )

(ah yes, but we have reserved a place in the history books. In a couple of hundred years time it will be written: In these enlightened times, now we have a wombat for president, we should not forget the small number of vegetarians of the 20th and 21st centuries (some of whom became famous poets) who paved the way the the society we enjoy today.)

To pay taxes until the national debt is paid off.


Unlikely reason to join a writer's circle.



Mark, my youngster likes to go to McDonald's for fries and, (no joke, this is what he orders) bun, cheese, bun, no sauce. We like watching the cashier's deer-in-the-headlights look when he gives his order and I order a 'fresh' salad with no meat. Can't do it. Salads come pre-made with animal flesh and McDonald's employees can't find the *no meat* button.

The beer-of-the-month club rejected your application.

Unlikely reason to think the national debt will ever be paid.



I like my veggies but I am also, sadly (in the eyes of some), a carnivore.
However, I do not consider much of anything at McDonald's as food in any category.

All of the politicians will be replaced by honest, hard working commonfolk who care more about the greater good rather than themselves.



Unlikely place to find honest commonfolk.




(True, Herron)

A club for nightprowlers.

Unlikely name for a club that caters to the criminal element.

Actually, there is one thing that McDonald's does quite well: coffee.  ;D

Unlikely reason to get a prompt that says, "Warning - while you were typing 2953 new replies have been posted. You may wish to review your post." when you're making a new post.

Spammers have gotten really good at MWC word games.

Unlikely reason for spammers to play word games anywhere.

That's true. I used to stop for a cup most weekday mornings on my way to work.  ;)
