BIRMINGHAM, AL—According to sources, local dad Dave Manheart recently completed a project that will help enable his family to save money on groceries. After much research and 10 weekends of hard labor, Dave has succeeded in constructing a backyard chicken coop. With a small investment of just $3000 on lumber and supplies, he now can get 16¢ eggs for free.
“With the supply chain issues and inflation, it’s important to be independent,” said Manheart. “Plus, this new chicken coop will look really great on my wife’s Instagram feed, which is what this whole thing is really about.”
Local witnesses described Manheart’s pride in the newly constructed chicken coop as “really cute.” His wife assured reporters that they will enjoy eating ten eggs a day since they are free.
This is very close to accurate, as I have written before.
It’s very important to stack functions with chickens so you don’t end up blowing tons of money on a few eggs. Get them working for you!
I just received Steve Solomon’s Water Wise Gardening book yesterday and last night I had to cut open every other page with a letter opener. Fortunately, it was not a large book. FYI.
Thank you. Sounds like a printing error – any printer info on the book itself? We have two printing companies making the book.
I can’t decide if that’s hilarious or tragic. They’re willing to “invest” $3k (not to mention tens of hours of labor) in a chicken coop, but it’s worth it because now they can eat as many “free” eggs as they want. Like…really? I don’t know if they’ve actually acquired the chickens yet, but I’d love to see the look on their faces when they realize you still have to feed them every day. But I guess this kind of divorced-from-reality behavior is what comes of being dependent on Instagram for your dopamine.
