Pierogie Humor

An elderly Polish man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite pierogie with fried onions wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed. Gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

Downstairs, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen, where if not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were hundreds of his favorite pierogie.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

He threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the pierogie was already in his mouth. With a trembling hand he reached up to the edge of the table, when suddenly he was smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.

"Back off!" she said. "Those are for the funeral."

Testimonial

When asked to bring a dish to pass at a family party on my husband's side of the family, I immediately thought of infusing some of my Polish heritage into the festivities. I wanted to bring Pierogi's but when I thought about the time and expense of my making them myself, I quickly changed my mind. I then happened upon a lovely young sales person who just so happened to know this guy. That is how I happened upon the Pierogie Guy. I bought dozens of every kind imaginable. I was delighted with the outcome as I was praised for the wonderful dish I brought to the party. Well the next year came along, and I decided to bring a different dish, 'who wants to bring the same thing every year' I thought to myself. Boy was I wrong, I was told all in good fun of course, that if I didn't bring those Pierogie Guy's Pierogie's next year that I could just stay home. I'll be placing my big order every year. Thanks Pierogie Guy!!!!
