You know sometimes it's the labels more than the post!

Ahhh...'tis no wonder he was sainted!

Bonnie said...

It's a shame he didn't burn it at the stake so it wouldn't be free to invade other countries...

Quilting Mama said...

It took such a long time for them to get across the Atlantic, but where will those abused skeins go now.

Susan said...

I just got looked at funny because I cracked up in the middle of the coffee shop. oh well, at least I wasn't sipping my chai when I saw this! I'd hate to have to clean it out of my keyboard...

Oh blessed Padraig, we thank thee for thy good work in a green and fertile land of sheep and wool. Come, we implore thee, and intervene here in Minnesota, that the pernicious curse of funfur be lifted here also...

Kamigaeru said...

Well done, sir. I'll drink a toast to that!!

[Devil's Advocate:] I've read that the stuff is actually preferred for chemo caps.

DAMN STRAIGHT; NO FUN FUR ANYWHERE!

Julie-in-in said...

I love you, Franklin.

Anita said...

I would never be so impudent as to label you a leprechaun.

dclulu said...

hahahaha

Bionic Laura said...

I am weak with the laughing. Cheered up my Paddy's day no end.

Beannacht Lá Fhéile Pádraig duit!

Merry Karma said...

What tonya said.

Seanna Lea said...

I'd never call you a leprechaun. I cannot really picture you dressed like the cartoon for Lucky Charms, though I can picture you gloweringly protecting your cashmere from all comers!

Shelda said...

Oh, Franklin, how I love you!

Small Town Knit Guy, Rusty Boyd said...

Love it. I think they all swam to the Big Box stores here in the deep south, and are multiplying in the baskets.

drkknits said...

yes and the scurvy bastards ended up down here didnt they!

Katie K said...

That's hilarious!

Anonymous, too said...

Sadly, 'tis just a legend. Fun fur was unknown until the wild synthetic was discovered in the late 19th century. Since then, millions of the cute little synthetics have been slaughtered so that we might have fun fur.

And call you a leprechaun? Never! (But do I get three wishes if I rub your lamp, oh great genie?)

FugueStateKnits said...

No more fun fur! Ah, 'tis a good day to be Irish:)!

Emily/Knit Addictions said...

Please St. Paddy, come to South Dakota and free us of the wretched synthetic novelty yarns here as well!

I can't drink and read your blog - I spit out my liquids every time. You are hilarious. I am following Harry's twitter because of his "invite" ... I'm thinking about the progress of the poncho and I just love you. I have your calendar this year ... ok enough gushing. You make me laugh.

Mom of many said...

Ireland is too small an area, I think the world would be more appropriate. Very funny! :)

lori said...

lol.

Shelley said...

OMG - you are too funny!

beardedknitter said...

How will we knit our Muppet costumes without fun-fur, though?

tamara said...

OMG! As always, I'm late to the party, but holy christ on a cracker, that was funny!

Marji said...

Now, THAT would have been a good deed.

kmkat said...

I thought he said to the snakes/pagans. "Get the #%$^ out of here!"

Anonymous said...

My name is Lokismom and I, too, once knit with Fun Fur. There: I feel good about getting that off my needles.

Abigail said...

Hahahahahaha - love it!!

Harpa Jónsdóttir said...

Now - would he do that for other countries I wonder?

Jill said...

Again! Again! You make me laugh again. Thank you.

Virginia said...

LOVE IT!

Anonymous said...

but how will we knit the cute and cuddly hedgehog patterns without fun fur?

KarenJ said...

I have been too sick this week to knit, some days too flu-ridden to read or go online. This is the best I've felt in a week. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Susan (and SmokeyBlue in spirit) said...

ROTFLMAO

patricia said...

I like fun fur! I even bought a ball of it in Ireland a few years back. It must be hiding in cargo holds to sneak back in.

spuffyduds said...

Okay, this is unrelated to this particular post and also kind of dorky, but I just discovered your blog last weekend. And this week has been otherwise pretty crappy, but reading through your back archives has been one very brights spot. So...thank you.

Maria said...

ROTFLMAO!!!

thetinfoilhatsociety.com said...

I agree in principle...and I do not have any fun fur in my stash...but I DID once knit a fun fur thong for a male friend of mine on the occasion of his marriage. It was a *huge* hit, apparently, and not just among our co workers.

Sara in WI said...

You always have the most apropos comments...
It was good to see you yesterday. I hope that Madison treated you well except for the dancers on the floor above you...

Diane said...

I would never call you a leprechaun...a djinn who's a bad influence maybe, but never a leprechaun!

Kathryn said...

Absolutely hysterical!

Miss Sandra said...

*snort!*

merrilymarylee said...

I'm pretty sure it comes here and gets sent to Michael's Crafts. Too bad it's not SAINT Michael's Crafts--it could be driven out of there, too.

Funny, funny picture!

Dez Crawford said...

ROTFLMAO!

Kristen said...

No wonder he has a day of his own.

revl said...

a bit late, a bit blue...i needed this, thank you

Sasha said...

The picture even has the appropriate level of disdain " be off with thee! I cannot bear to even look upon such hideousness!"

Tree Huggers said...

I don't know if someone has linked this before, but I believe it's a rare never-before-seen picture of Dolores! http://fatpita.net/?i=5537

(I got linked to your blog a couple of weeks ago and have been non-creepily lurking since. You are pretty amazing. Btw.)

Andrea said...

And here I am chocking on my cheese sandwich. Man, you're the best.

Mary Ellen said...

Please write more stuff...I am the mother of a pre-teen and your humor helps...please rant away about something...anything really. Thank you.

Eryka Jackson said...

That is sooo funny! I wish he really could get rid of the fun fur!

A bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out aion gold, it never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom aion gold, It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself aion kinah.
