“Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry”

"Happier than a bird with a french fry” is a relatively new saying. There are several prints for “Happier Than a Bird with a French Fry,” such as “TODAY I WILL BE HAPPIER THAN A BIRD WITH A FRENCH FRY” (Studio Mela, Lake Minnetonka, MN) and “Today I shall be happier than a bird with a french fry!” and “you make me happier than a bird with a french fry.”

“I WILL BE HAPPIER THAN A BIRD WITH A FRENCH FRY” has been cited in print since December 2006.

SO VERY HAPPY (white)
Description
This is an 8x10 print titled “So Very Happy” featuring my little bird illustration that was drawn in ink and colored digitally.

This version is light aqua blue with white type. (There are other versions available in the shop!)

Your new print is printed using only the finest Archival PIGMENT ink (pigment ink is the very best!) and is on Professional Grade Luster paper.

I sign each print before mailing them off to their new happy homes. This will arrive safely packaged in a cello sleeve and a StayFlat cardboard mailer.

Have a “so very happy” day!

Smiles, Shelli @ Studio Mela

French Fries Make Everyone Happy
March 10, 2009 by jenn
Again, maybe this is pushing it for a food blog, but I saw this print on Etsy and couldn’t stop laughing. It’s done by a local artist, Shelli (dazey chic) and available for purchase at her Etsy site. We’ve all seen a bird with a french fry, right? That’s Happy. Next time you’re down, just think about a bird. With a Fry.

Bird with a French Fry

A friend of mine often describes his mood as “happier than a bird with a french fry”, I thought it made a neat saying and decided to make a illustration/ desktop background with it.

Bird’s Eye View on Fast Food
Walking down Charles Street in Boston last weekend, I spied the following framed aphorism in a shop window:

“I’m going to be as happy today as a bird with a french fry!”

That’s a new one to me.  I began to think of just how happy a bird would be with a french fry in its beak.  And would such happiness last a day?
