Friday Funnies – 12/10/2021

A stumpkin - piece of wood with a face on it.
A Bumpkin from my daughter, Talia

This cute character was a gift to me from my daughter, Talia.

When she gave it to me, she told me it was a Stumpkin.

But a few times, I forgot and referred to it as a Bumpkin.

She would say, “Mom, it’s a Stumpkin. A STUMPKIN. It’s made from a stump. Get it?”

Talia, if you are reading this, – and she does read my blog – you should stop reading right now.

Everyone else, please continue past the *****.


I could see how this aggravated her, so, just to have a little fun, I always refer to it as a Bumpkin.

This has been going on for years, and I still laugh inside each time I do it.

How do you like my Bumpkin?



  1. I never heard of a Stumpkin, but then what do I know? I am just a country bumpkin from the sticks of northwest Texas…where the sticks are not large enough to make a Stumpkin if we had even heard of one. But I do love a little subterfuge and the hehehe. Happy Friday!

    • The only Stumpkin (I am conceding to you here – a one time thing just so you know) I have ever met is the one my daughter gave me. I don’t think they were massed produced. You might say it is the gift that keeps giving – smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your Friday!

    • Yes, David, you are right. The Bible instructs “Fathers, do not nag thy children lest they lose heart”, but this same instruction is not given for mothers. ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your Sunday!
