I Have A Pet Rooster. I Have A Pet ROOSTER?!

Sitting down to dinner last night we had just called Drew from outside to come and join us.  As he trailed in from the heat and turned the corner of the hall he said, "Uh, Mom?  Did you know we have a bunch of stickers on our car?" 
"What?" I said, confused.
"I don't know, there's like people on it.  Come here and I'll show you."
I followed him outside with Cory and Samantha in tow and as we turned the corner to view the once naked rear window of our van, I spotted THIS:


My first reaction:  This isn't our car.  But then I checked the license plate and it WAS our car.
My 2nd reaction:  Looks like Ganelle has been busy today.

I called her to verify my suspicions and sure enough, our 10-year prank war continues.  It was sort of her turn, seeing as I was the one who wrapped her refrigerator contents when they were on vacation.  Anyway, apparently she put these on my car DURING CHURCH but we didn't even notice until Drew discovered it several hours later.  From a quick glance it may not seem like much, but to look closer you will see that the role of my Accountant husband has been replaced by Michael Keaton:
 And while Cory's decal is busy getting all the chores done, here's how Mama pays the bills:

This is so inaccurate, nobody ever gets a royal flush.  And wait, how many kids do I have?  One...two...camo...butterfly wings...is that...a pet ROOSTER?


Minus the pet, the two extra kids, and my alleged gambling addiction I guess it's not completely erroneous.  Cory does do his own laundry!  Good show Ganelle, good show.

This is awesome! I love this idea. I think my coworker Charlie needs these on his kidnapper van.

That is so funny!!!1
I hope you never ever take it off.

I think she rocks just because she did it during church!

You are the luckiest to have friends like that.

Tell us... if you HAD to choose one of the 4 kid decals to represent your real children, which ones would you pick?

This is truly SO FUNNY!

You know what? I think your van from an alternate universe hit a worm hole and traded places with your real van...

I love how you checked your license plate, ha ha. I think you should leave it.

how fun to have such a good fun whose sense of humor ranks up there with yours! And quit calling me "Smalls".... I'm sensitive since I'm married to a guy whose 6'4" and I'm a lot shorter than that... LOL

The fact she did that to your car DURING church has just elevated you both to rockstar status in my celestial books. I thought only my crazy friends did stuff like this.

This is ridiculously awesome! I have never thought to hijack my friend's car before, but this is hilarious!

I absolutely love it! That's the kind of pet rooster to have - one that doesn't make any noise in the mornings.

Kristy, I saw your car after you dropped off Samantha for camp this morning (I was driving behind you) before I read this post and didn't know it was you! I was totally making fun of you (but I didn't know it). I was like, WHO HAS A CHICKEN FOR A PET?!

Looks like the joke was totally on me because that's clearly a rooster.

You guys make me laugh! She called me in New York to get my opinion on this, and I thought she did brilliantly! Thanks for entertaining me for the last decade :)

As someone who has had this prank done to her...those pampered chef plastic scrapers and a good soak in rain or car wash are the way to go :D
they loaded me up with a bunch of 'sister wives' and a lobster :D I also didn't notice until after I drove around a bit and was putting groceries in my car.

by the way still looking for a way to get back at my buddies...and I hear you and Ganelle have some great ideas...
