Funnel

Three things came to mind when seeing today’s daily prompt: Funnel.

Funnel Web Spider

I honestly don’t know much about these spiders.  Aren’t they only in Australia?  I hear their bites are extremely deadly.

Funnel Cloud

I live in Tennessee where there’s more than enough tornado activity to suit me. I’ve never seen a funnel cloud (because I’m usually hiding in a closet or basement) but I’ve sure heard them. And yes, they do sound just like a freight train.

Funnel Cake

Definitely my favorite thing about the county fair!

      Haha! I feel the same! I hope I never meet a funnel web spider. I guess I won’t have anything to worry about as I’ll probably never make it to Australia.

    I can only imagine how scary a funnel cloud must be. Reading about them is enough. Funnel cake? Is that an upside down cake? Thanks for reading my post. Yes the view is really spectacular.

      A funnel cake is just a deep fried batter. It’s called a funnel cake because the batter is poured into the hot grease through a funnel in a circular pattern. After it’s fried, it’s sprinkled with powdered sugar. It’s very popular at carnivals, fairs and concession stands in North America. Probably not very healthy but SO delicious. I HAVE to have one when I go to the fair each year! Thanks for reading and for your nice reply.
