That thud you heard was me falling off my chair in a fit of laughter.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Paige,

I did the same thing when I saw it. So much for collecting the gold.

katrice said...

Hilarious!

I have a new home. "Wait... I'll Think of Something" is still up for a little while, but I'm inviting all my blog friends to look for me in my new spot. E-mail me at katrice0321 at yahoo dot com for the new URL.

That goes for any of your regular readers who may be interested as well.

(I'm not publicizing my new blog on the old blog for a reason.)

Thanks!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Katrice,

Uh oh. I hope the problem is not serious.

I'll be right there.

Aisby said...

HA!!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Aisby,

Long time no see. You and I have some catching up to do.

flutter said...

Oh that's gold alright!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Flutter,

Yes. One person's shit is another person's gold, they say.

Voyager said...

That is too funny. But kind of prophetic, as in "what do you get if you spend your time just chasing rainbows?"

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Voyager,

But rainbows are so beautiful. I think it's fine to chase them as long as you don't expect to find gold.

Cece said...

Ewwww. Uh...no thanks. lol

EsLocura said...

I always wondered what was at the end of rainbows ... thanks for bursting my bubble! I would be sad if I weren't laughing so hard.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Cece,

Apparently all that glitters isn't gold.

Eslocura,

I really hate being the cause of your loss of innocence.

Open Grove Claudia said...

Ok - that's hilarious. And very true. Sometimes the blue house is indeed the pot of gold.

thethinker said...

Haha, great picture!

Girl on the Run... said...

LOL.... it took me a minute but I finally got it! lol

Josie said...

Hearts, that is too funny!!!. I love it. That photo is a prize winner.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Claudia,

The blue house isn't anything like the House of Blues, is it?

thinker,

:)

Girl,

I can see why you were confused. No leprechauns.

Josie,

I know. Too bad I didn't take it.

meno said...

Oh that's so true. We go looking for one pot and find another. Ha!

la cubana gringa said...

I always knew the luck of the Irish was bullshit.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Meno,

No one-pot dinners for me.

La Cubana,

I'm happy to hear that as I'm not Irish.

Jocelyn said...

At least there's not cannibas next to the port-a-john. Then I wouldn't know which was funnier.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Jocelyn,

It could be growing behind it. Well fertilized, lots of sun, ideal conditions.

Ryane said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That is the greatest picture ever.

mist1 said...

Oh, I'd be so disappointed.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Ryane,

!!!

Mist,

Yeah.

The CEO said...

Well done.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Ceo,

Things don't always work out the way you expect.

thailandchani said...

Where do you find these things? LOL


Peace,

~Ch

sognatrice said...

Hah! My search is over!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

"D're's gold in dem dere dump."

Tanya Brown said...

Well! So much for keeping my coffee in my mouth while I drank it. And, um, for keeping the screen of my computer clean.

MsLittlePea said...

Damn! I thought you meant another kind of pot!

goodthomas said...

Okay, so there is no gold at the end of the rainbow. Not only no gold, but in its place, an outhouse. And the outhouse is just a temporary outhouse, a port-a-john.

Beautiful.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Hearts,

For once I have no words... just lots and lots of laughter. You are priceless my girl, and this picture is as well.

That's not the pot I'd hoped for, but it laid me out in a fit of giggles. Thanks!

furiousBall said...

that rocks socks.

Jay said...

I didn't know, but I always suspected.
Life is like that.

jali said...

Funny as hell!

James Burnett said...

Ha! Last time I go sniffing around the base of a rainbow.

Liz said...

But you had good luck in capturing this picture!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Chani,

I just attract weird shit.

Sognatrice,

Glad I could help.

Squirrel,

You wanna stake a claim?

Tanya,

Oops. No-drink zone.

Sweet Pea,

I've got friends in high places.

Thomas,

It's disappointing. I was hoping for at least a cute little house with a moon cutout on the door.

S&V,

Maybe laughter is the gold we seek.

Furious,

I'd keep my shoes on out there if I were you. Rattlesnakes, you know.

Jay,

I hate to be the bearer of such bad news.

Jali,

Port-a-stalls are hellish places.

James,

Good thinking. Beauty can be deceiving.

Liz,

It isn't my shot. My auntie sent it to me.

My Reflecting Pool said...

Hahahaha, Some days it feels this way.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Reflective,

At least whoever took the photo has a pot to piss in.

seventh sister said...

Not the kind of pot I always thought it would be.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Seventh,

Life is full of surprises.

urban-urchin said...

That pretty much sums up the last month for me....

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Urchin,

So sorry. It should have been gold.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

The golden treasure is in the post, and in all the laughter and fun comments we've gotten to share with each other.

Syrup, I know.. but true. I laugh best here.

Ian Lidster said...

Could be more welcome than a pot of gold if the circumstances were urgent ones.
Ian

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Scarlett,

The comments are the best part of all my posts.

I am constantly amazed at the wit, compassion, and delight I get back every time.

Ian,

When you need to go there, nothing else will even remotely do.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Hearts,

I got tagged with a meme, and I am passing it along to you... tagged.
Please stop by my blog to get the details.
It's a meme of eights.

Can't wait to see your list...

Princess Banter said...

Hahaha -- well, I've always thought that myth was always a load o' crock ;) That was hilarious!

Dumdad said...

Gosh, you get a lot of comments. Wow, here's another one.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Princess,

Well, let's not jump to any hasty conclusions. I'm still not sure about the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Thanks for coming by here.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Dumdad,

They are like roses. Thank you.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Scarlett,

Sorry I didn't see your last comment.

I'll check out your meme answers now.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Came back to finish reading the comments and it occurred to me, you know...

The bible says,

"Where your treasure is, there you heart lies also"...

HA HA HA HA

Scarlett & V.

eastcoastdweller said...

Ah, you are all so deceived! Don't you know how clever leprechauns are? This honeypot is but a crafty scheme, a facade, a Potomkin potty, to keep greedy grubbers from grabbing the green man's stash.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Scarlett,

“It is more blessed to give than to receive."

No one would deny that this applies to outhouses.

Eastcoaster,

That must be what is meant by the luck of the Irish.

The word "honeypot," first heard as a child, kept me from tasting honey for the first decade or so of my life.
