Monday morning writing joke: “Carving up the profits”

A turkey and a writer walked into a local bar.

The turkey thought the writer could make him a flying star.

“I’ll tell you my life story and then you’ll write it down.

“And we’ll split all the profits when a publisher is found.”

The writer had heard such talk and promises before,

But with his feathers spread, the turkey was too big to ignore.

Getting to the heart of the matter.

Getting to the heart of the matter.

When the loud fowl finished gobbling about his wonderful life

The writer reached into his tattered pocket and drew out his carving knife.

What happen next to the turkey, we’re not sure we can ever tell

Only that the poor writer liked the bird, but only medium well.

Now, let this be a lesson about where the writer will start.

The pen may be mightier than the sword, but the knife can cut to the heart.
