A Honkless Holiday

Percy:  So what's the story on your exciting walk last week?

Buddy:  We were walking and suddenly Marcus screamed - screamed, mind you - Hey, Minnie, hey, Mo!  You brought your family this time.

Rusty::  Who was he screaming at?

Merci:  Geese.  He thinks all geese are named Minnie and Mo. 

Percy:  So what did the geese say?

Buddy:  Nothing.  They just stared at us like we were weird.  Mo is a honker so I guess Minnie and Mo weren't present.

Merci:  Since the geese wouldn't talk to us, Marcus wanted Jan to run home to get his sign.  She refused. 

Percy:  If I remember correctly, Marcus speaks goose with a Southern accent and Minnie and Mo spoke Canadian.  What dialect you suppose these geese spoke?

Buddy:   Is silence a dialect?  They never made a sound.

Percy:  Oh, that's why Marcus came home all upset.  He came in muttering, Those stuck up out of towners!

Marcus:  *enters room*  Hey, guys, I just figured out why those geese wouldn't honk at me the other day.

Buddy:  Why?

Marcus:  It was a honkless holiday.  I think I hear the treat bag rustling in the kitchen.

Percy:  What's a honkless holiday?

Buddy:  I have no idea.  But this is Thankful Thursday.and I'm sure thankful you and Merci didn't ask him.
