Elmer FODD

That eyesore’s been there for years. Elmer never fixed it. What a mah-rone!

Everyone’s complained. We even offered to help tear it down. Hell, it ain’t worth fixin’.

But no, Elmer the FODD, is a stubborn fool. Yes, I said FODD, not FUDD.

You see, Elmer goes ahead and puts up a white fence rather than doing away with the barn.

Hence, the FODD – Friggin’ Oppositional Defiance Disorder.

He’s had it ever since he was born. His mother used to smack him silly.
Now we’re not sure if he acts that way simply from FODD or because of the swats.

  1. Hey! Come on! leave the guy alone! That’s a piece of art, history. What’cha gonna tear down next? Hoover Damn? That’s old. Maybe Mt. Rushmore, that’s old. How about me? I’m old. Gonna come and tear down me? Think, maybe, you oughta be rethinking this tear attitude of yours. Positive energy; that’s what you all need. All the negativity could give a guy the runs. Okay, then.

  2. I know some people who resemble that FODD! 🙂
    Hope you’ll be enjoying sunshine this weekend. My parents in AZ got some actual snow, at least some of the Phoenix area did, so who knows what might be headed your way???


  3. Dear Randy,
    I had a neighbor with this disorder. When the homes association sent threatening notices about his yard, he dug in his heels and let the grass grow until it was waist deep.
    Funny stuff or should I say FODD for thought.
    Shalom and Hag Samayakh,

  4. Poor Elmer. I know a few real ones like that. And I’ve been known to suffer a case of the FODD from time to time, myself. Not through smacking, though. I think it’s my rebellious nature. I do like his white fence, though, he did a good job.

Have some fun...
