"...the commodities are up?" really? hadn't heard that one.

"...the cookie's crumbled?" maybe, but no

"...they were made by a goose?" I call FOWL!

"...it's time to show your cards?" er, no

"...gravity is working?" when does gravity not work on earth?

"...the lumberjack was short?" My college mascot was the Lumberjack

it's time to send eric estrada a pick-me-up bouquet. LOL

"...don't pick them off the floor to eat?" good advice, but not relevant to this puzzle.

"...wait for 'em to dry before you pick 'em up."
this actually could apply, in an -ish-ish sort of way, but don't let that mislead you...

...the puss is gonna get wet? I haven't heard that one before either...
...somebody's going to step in it? Surprisingly, closest to OTRT so far, but laterally speaking, of course.
...the dollar bills better be folded right? or look like they've never been folded, depending on how sensitive some of these automatic currency readers are...

Is this another pun, like your "On the other hand...." puzzle?

Chips:
French fries? Potatoe chips? Computer chips? Wood chips? Chocolate chips? Poker chips? Golf strokes?

Down:
Directionally? On the floor? On a table? Below me? Below my waist? Below my head? Am "I" relevant? Below some other thing?

Down physically? Or down in some characteristic? Price? Amount? Feeling blue? Down wind?

So this pertains to fertilization? Are they on a feild? Is this person in a hole? I assume correct me if I am wrong there are two people/animals here do they know each other or is that irrel?
Now for some truly at srandom I'm pulling traws questions....
Did they murder someone and one is telling the other cover it up?
Is the government involved?
Did you make this up or it actually happened?
Is it something that people do every day?
Is it unusual?
Are they on the job?

So this pertains to fertilization? fertilization is more an afterthought to the idea. Are they FA on a field? maybe--irrel. Is this person FA in a hole? probably not... I wouldn't pursue this line of reasoning... I assume correct me if I am wrong you are wrong, or more accurately, this is somewhat irrelevant ---> there are two people/animals here do they know each other or is that irrel? irrel.
Now for some truly at srandom I'm pulling traws questions.... go for it!
Did they murder someone and one is telling the other cover it up? no.
Is the government involved? no
Did you make this up or it actually happened? yope
Is it something that people do every day? quite likely, but 'people' is irrelevant.
Is it unusual? the phrase is logical, but not something that would normally be heard or 'connected', thus making it ideal lateral puzzle fodder.
Are they on the job? FA, there is no "they" involved.
