Jolly Green Giant Dead at 55

 Police report Myke Johnson was parking when he struck the giant, killing him.

“All I saw was some leaves. I thought he was just compost!” The distraught driver said.

Mr. Giant never married. He is survived by his long-time ward, Sprout.

“He always said we were ‘two peas in a pod’.” Sprout commented.

A spokesperson for the company had this to say:

“Jolly was well-liked. Nobody could ‘Ho Ho Ho’ like him. Nobody.”

Services will be held Saturday at the Green Giant Canning Company. In lieu of flowers, please donate canned peas to your local food pantry.

  1. This is funny. Am I going to hell for laughing? My roommate ate a can of peas for lunch today. Nothing else, just peas. Well done. Like your blog and your sense of steal, I mean style. Lucy

  2. Please pass my condolences along to Sprout. Jolly’s camouflage was just too good. He should have left the vegetable business and went into hunting apparel. There’s a big demand for plus sizes in that industry. 🙂

    1. Santa is a big supporter of kids eating their vegetables. He will survive. (The censorship department made me change my original statement due to its content. I believe it went something like “F**k Santa.”)


  3. Kirizar, Hilarious. 😀 The comments were almost as good. Sounds like Jolly was taking a nap at the time. He picked the wrong place to rest, and now Sprout’s on his own. It was an understandable tragedy. Well written. 🙂 —Susan


    1. Dear Kirizar, I LOVE IT! – YOU WIN THIS WEEK FOR FUNNY! I absolutely love the Jolly Ho Ho Ho – Green Giant story. Awesome and so witty – great job, I love the comments too because they are funny and entertaining. As far as the alcoholic impairment of the big guy, the family, I’m sure, appreciates your discretion! By the way, have you met Jack? He lives up the big vine. You are hilarious! Nan 😉
