Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrified

Pirate spoons

There was a time when I often heard transmogrify – my school friends and I thought it was funny.

I still can’t take the word 100% seriously, so I wanted to share something that made me smile – these wooden spoons that have been transmogrified into pirates.

Aaaaar!

    I first encountered “transmogrified”in “Calvin and Hobbes,” so I too have trouble taking it seriously because they both pop into my head when I see the word. It’s a wonderful word indeed that has such substance AND can make people chuckle. Those spoons are perfect transmogrifications!

    Oh, my gosh! What a great idea. They made me laugh. An excellent craft project for children, too.

    [J] Oddly enough I’ve never thought it a comic or made-up word, I’ve always assumed it was authentic. I’ve always used it in the sense of a change or transformation that is complete, such that the original character or form is no longer recognizable. Thus, human into hump-back whale ; car into computer.
