Chip Off The Old Blog?

Hi there. Would you like a chip off the old blog? Please, help yourself. Or, maybe you might just like to rearrange the formation of the chips to spell out something else. I've already worked out 'bog doll'.
You may have realised that I have too much time on my hands. Yes, I was thinking about writing, 'too much time', on each of my hands and taking a photograph of it.
So feeling somewhat chipper, I have decided to do a blog about...ah...chips. When the chips are down, I chip away at the chip on my shoulder and take a chip shot at the chipboard where the chipmunk is chopping chips after cashing in the chips at the casino for critters who like...ah..chips.
I hope you have not become 'chipbored'. You might wish to chip in with a comment and maybe submit a chip pan, whoops, a chip pun. I leave you with my attempt at some semblance of poetry. I told you I have too much time on my hands.

Chocolate chips
Chip and pin
Some you lose
Some you win
Chip and Dale
Without fail
I doesn't matter

What? There's more? Just a little bit more. In closing...'get on with it man''s 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips'...chip, chip, hooray.....what do you get when you cross a potato-loving ape with a flower? A chipansy...


  1.'ve got me at it too, trying mentally to arrange those letters! :-) Hugs....

    "Potato clock", brilliant one Dave.
    I shall gladly give you a side a fries and chocolate milkshake.
    Kind wishes, Gary.

  11. Well hello again, Dixie. Nice to note you have been rearranging those chippy letters. I wonder if you 'Googled' 'Gloobl'd'.
    Hey, here's one, an exclusive video site, just for potatoes, 'YouTuber'.
    Thanks Dixie. With respect and chips, Gary:-)

  12. Hi:)

    I find chips galore here. Chips are running amok with gay abandon. I would love to have fish and chips.

    Have a nice day:)

  13. Hello Joseph,
    Thank you for visiting my blog. That is most appreciated.
    Shall endeavour to send you some fish and chips, just for the 'halibut':-)
    Hope you are having a nice day.
    Kind wishes, Gary.

  14. I love the chip-ahoy cookie, also love to engage in cheap-talk sometimes, and well I enjoy reading your chip-blog. Thanks to you, Gary.

  15. Dear Gary,
    Are you bored? Too much time on your hands? Seen your psychiatrist lately?
    Never mind, you know you can turn to your old mate Dave when the chips are down!
    With very Best Wishes,

  16. Hi Jun.
    Chip ahoy cookies. Very nice, that certainly takes the biscuit.
    Your chips are on the way, good sir.
    Kind wishes to you, Gary.

  17. Dear David,
    I am virtually 'chipbored'. My doctor has suggested I go to the chip clinic for a detox after attending a 'mash' unit.
    Thanks for your comment, David.
    Chip, chip and all that sort of rot.
    Kind wishes, your way, Gary:-)

  18. I know a song about this

    "Chipperdeedoodah, chipperdeeday, my oh my it's a chocolate chip day"

    you had me, obviously, at the mere mention of choc chips! :)

  19. Hi Jaye,
    Chocolate chips..hmmm.I think that is right up there with deep fried Mars bars.
    Thank you for your musical interlude.
    I leave you with lyrics sung by 'Chip Van' Dyke from Mary Poppins: 'chip chip-in-ey, chip chip-in-ey, chip, chip cher-oo...'
    Thanks Jaye, and I hope folks go over to your blog and celebrate the one year anniversary of the 'Daily Scatter'.
    Kind wishes, Gary:-)

  20. I rearranged the chips and came up with "BOG DOLL" which chips away at reality and sounds like a horror movie title or ghost-written guest blog. Chips off the old blog? My best and please pass the sheep dip!

  21. Hi Count Sneaky,
    Aha, of course, in Britain, 'Bog' can mean toilet and thus, I'm now looking for a doll in my toilet :)
    Henry, thanks for commenting on this archived posting. And I say to you, 'chip, chip away.'


I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
