View Full Version : I'm sick of February so how about a new laugh line?

02-20-2011, 06:36 PM
The following are just an attempt to get over a month that should be wiped off the calendar. Good thing it's only 28 days. Couldn't stand much more.
I think it's time for some laughs. This will be definitely off topic, off track, off kilter and anything else that's off. By all means chime in with whatever grinds your beans. Still have half of Feb. to endure.

First some thoughts to ponder.


Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dish washing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why do they sterilize the needles for lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

. . . and just one more of these. Only in America do banks leave all their doors open and chain their pens to the counters.

Then one for the guys: A married couple were driving their horse and buggy to a town event. The horse shied and bucked on the trail and the husband got out - got the buggy back on the trail and admonished the horse - "THAT'S ONE!".

He got back in the buggy and continued on their way. The horse shied again and ran off the trail. The husband got out, pushed the buggy back on the trail and waved his finger at the horse and said, "THAT'S TWO!"

After driving for a while the poor, frightened, uncontrollable horse shied and pulled the buggy into a deep cut on the roadside. The man got out, said, "THAT'S THREE" and with his gun, shot the horse!

His wife was terribly upset - got out of the buggy and said, "Oh, dear, the horse was just frightened! You didn't have to shoot it! Now, what will we do to get back home?!! I've never seen you do such a heartless thing!"

The husband replied . . . "THAT'S ONE!!

O.K. I've got more and better ones - I bet you do too - so join in. Jean

02-20-2011, 06:59 PM
Thanks Jean. That's just what I needed today!:roflhard:

02-20-2011, 09:15 PM
Thanks! :roflhard:
That's worthy of a copy/paste to share far and near.

02-21-2011, 01:33 AM
I actually love February. Maybe because it's different than all of the rest of the months and even more different every 4 years:roflhard: .........and now, for my newest grand-nephew's birthday.

And the 1,2,3 joke.........My grandfather told that one more years ago than I remember......but, I've never forgotten it. I don't think I've ever remembered any other "story" joke I've heard; but, I can still hear him laughing like crazy as soon as I "got it". Thanks for the memory (and the laughs)

02-21-2011, 06:41 PM
Certainly, that's what we all need every day. One of my very favorite musicians, Victor Borge, said, "A smile is the shortest distance between 2 people."

Lana, Have meant to comment on your knitting direction tag - I luv, luv, luv it. Sounds like me right now trying to adapt a pattern to what I want. Or just any day when I've washed my hands and can't do a thing with them! :<)

Jeanie, You have a great name. I really like it. And Pam, Isn't it great how a few words can conjure up great memories from the past. I think that's why great writers are so important. They can bring both the past and the future to now.

The operative word here is NOW! Now you must contribute some of your funnies. There was a joke line a while back and it got to over 50 pgs. A little intimidating to find a particular story. There were some great ones. This should be the start of a new one. Jean

02-21-2011, 06:59 PM
If this joke line is going to take off we'll need Demonica to come back with more stories. Any one know where she is lately?

In the meantime, for fun, take some of the old sayings and bring them up to date as you wish. For instance, I have a few:

"If it ain't broke" . . . it's probably not mine.
" Where there's a will" . . . there's relatives.
And from Willy Shakespeare, All's well that . . . is, if you've got money in the bank and options on lots more!
Your turn. Jean

02-21-2011, 08:02 PM
Hmmmm. Wonder why you like my name? Actually I rather like yours too. You sound like you'd be a blast to hang out with. Coming my way any time soon?...

02-22-2011, 07:14 PM
Not likely, Jeanie, I'm in Northern Ill. and it's a "fur piece" to Texas.

I might be a blast for a while, but then I'd just be an old pain in the hindquarters and then, too, I'd hate to think myself responsible if you laughed yourself to death. Don't want that on my conscience.

Just send a good funny story to the laugh line and just like when I was a kid and all I could afford to pay was attention - I'll certainly notice it.

02-23-2011, 08:22 AM
Well Jean if I have to go, I can think of worse ways than laughing myself to death.:chair: :angelgrin: I just don't have any funnies to post here right now, but if I run across something I'll be sure to share.

02-23-2011, 01:40 PM
Here I am! ;)

Ok, I may have posted some of these before but there's no way I'm going back through the other thread to find out! :teehee:

These are claimed to be actual announcements made by in-flight attendants:

Before takeoff:
"To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. Actually, it works just like every other seat belt on the planet. If you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised."

"In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, or someone who is acting like a small child, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with two such persons, decide now which one you love more."

Shortly before arrival:
"Weather at our destination is 50 degrees, with some broken clouds; but they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your travel money, more than this airline."

On the ground, after an exceedingly bumpy landing:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash' and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt up against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal."

On arrival:
"We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of us here at this airline."

Ah, yes! Now the fun begins. We've missed you Demonica.

I've read all in the old jokes and I remember jokes very well. Yours, today, are new to me and they're grrrrreat!

So glad you've chimed in and I hope lots more members won't be shy and will add to this list. It certainly lifts spirits on a dreary, worrisome day.

Hey - Your airline jokes reminded me of one. I don't have the text so I'll have to improvise.

Promises, promises - "Take a Chance" airline. We save money by not providing all the frills of other competitors. We have no meals, no drinks, no oxygen masks. However, rather than a flotation device in your seat cushion we provide a low cost alternative . . . a parachute to every individual on our planes.

We hope your flight is uneventful because the parachutes only open on impact!!

02-23-2011, 04:12 PM
I can't take credit for the actual laugh line, but I asked what type of sheep Lion Brand's Fishermen's Wool comes from, adding that the label said it was 100% Pure Virgin Wool....here were the hilarious responses:

A virgin wool sheep has never had sex.

Yes Katz, But they've been subjected to some shearly, naked events where they dropped their coats with little protest!!!
Ohhh, the scandal of it all!

Q: What did one saggy boob say to the other saggy boob?

A: If we don't get some support soon people are going to think were nuts.

* * * * *

One afternoon a man came home from work to find total mayhem in his house. His three children were outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the
front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she may be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He found her lounging in the bedroom, still curled in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?" She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world did I do today?" "Yes" was his incredulous reply. She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

Yep, that makes more sense than the stupid, pie shaped indicators for investors. Very succint and meaningful. Can't make a mistake with such truth.

Demonica, As usual - another winner!

02-28-2011, 04:24 PM
Here are a couple of good stories I copied from the old forum laugh line. I think many of you haven't seen them and they're too good to ignore. Enjoy! Jean

> For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren't married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine:
> Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.
> As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.
> 'What in bag?' asked the old woman .
> Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.'
> The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said: ' Good trade '...
> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
> Attention deficit??!!!??
> I decide to water my garden.
> As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.
> As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.
> I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
> I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.
> But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox, when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only 1 check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.
> I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.
> I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.
> I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.
> At the end of the day:
> ----the car isn't washed,
> ----the bills aren't paid,
> ----there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,
> ----the flowers don't have enough water,
> ----there is still only 1 check in my check book,
> ----I can't find the remote,
> ----I can't find my glasses,
> ----and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
> Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.
> I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail. __________________

* * * * *


Rule One:
If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

Rule Two:
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three:
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes to big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact come off during the course of you date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.

Rule Four:
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "Barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

Rule Five:
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is: "early"

Rule Six:
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.

Rule Seven:
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process than can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?

Rule Eight:
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to introduce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka -- zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine:
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless God of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Ten:
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveways you should exit the car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car -- there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

We've created a monster. There are jokes here older than me.

03-02-2011, 05:22 PM
Demonica, You're 'da woman'. Keep bringin' em.

If some don't care for the content - they may bring their own that are better. I'm waiting!

03-12-2011, 04:27 PM
with apologies if some (or most) of these are old as Methusalah.

As I get older, I've learned that:

..."that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed."

...."that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished."

..." to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things."

How about some cat haikus?

The food in my bowl
Is old, and more to the point
Contains no tuna.

So you want to play.
Will I claw at dancing string?
Your ankle's closer.

There's no dignity
In being sick - which is why
I don't tell you where.

Seeking solitude
I am locked in the closet.
For once I need you.

Tiny can, dumped in
Plastic bowl. Presentation,
One star; service: none.

Am I in your way?
You seem to have it backwards:
This pillow's taken.

Your mouth is moving;
Up and down, emitting noise.
I've lost interest.

The dog wags his tail,
Seeking approval. See mine?
Different message.

My brain: walnut-sized.
Yours: largest among primates.
Yet, who leaves for work?

03-12-2011, 06:29 PM
Woodi, I'm very impressed! Your haikus are super good! They are so extremely measured that they are good practice for disciplined writing.

I talk too much so it's great for me to practice brevity. However, yours say so much in so few words as they should. Many mess up the syllable count or arrive at words which mean little. It's very difficult to achieve a meaningful verse and keep the count too. There's the rub! But you've done it.

I really enjoyed them

Shakespeare's B-day is coming up in April and I enjoy writing in his style, just for fun. I'll see if I can find a couple that you might enjoy. Believe me, you've never heard 21st century Shakespeare at my house. Jean

Jean, I said I'd share when I had something. Maybe a lot of you have heard this one before, but here goes....

Three women, 2 younger, and a senior citizen, were sitting naked in a sauna.

Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The young woman pressed her forearm and the beeping stopped.

The others looked at her questioningly. "That was my pager, she said, I have a microchip under the skin of my arm."

A few minutes later a phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear.

When she was finished, she explained, "That was my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand".

The other woman felt very low-tech. Not to be out done, she decided she had to do something just as impressive. She stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom.

She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end.

The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her.

The other woman finally said......


Hope that brought a chuckle to someone today.

That's a giggler alright, Jeanie. I'd love to see more. Could really use some good laughs. Jean

Here are some comments made by sports commentators that I'm sure they

A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her girlfriends when Steven, a tall, exceptionally handsome, extremely sexy, middle-aged man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take her eyes off him.

The seasoned yet playful heartthrob noticed her overly attentive stare and walked directly toward her. (As any man would.) Before she could offer her apologies for staring so rudely, he leaned over and whispered to her, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $20.00...on one condition...

Flabbergasted but intrigued, the woman asked what the condition was.The man replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."

The woman considered his proposition for a moment and then slowly removed $20 from her purse, which she pressed into the man's hand along with her address. She looked deeply and passionately into his eyes barely concealing her anticipation and excitement and slowly and meaningfully said...
"Clean my house."

As a senior at college, Steve would often engage women psychology
majors in heated discussions about male-female relationships. Once,
Shelly and Steve got into a hot debate about whether men or women make
the larger sacrifice of their respective gender characteristics when
they get married.

To Steve’s surprise, Shelly agreed with him that men give up far more
than women.

"You're right, Steve," she said. "Men generally give up doing their
cleaning, their cooking, their grocery shopping, their laundry..." :teehee:

Tom had won a toy at a raffle. He called his kids together to ask
which one should have the prize.

"Who is the most obedient?" he asked. "Who never talks back to
mother? Who does everything she says?"

Five small voices answered, in unison, "Okay, dad, you get the toy."

05-18-2011, 05:47 PM
Jeanie and Sara, You're getting your giddyup in gear. Great laughs. Thanks so much.
The '35' kids reminded me of an old one.

A couple with 9 children asked their Dr. what they could do to prevent any more babies.

Dr. told the husband to make sure to place a rubber over his organ.

4 months later the couple was back - wife,obviously pregnant and husband obviously irked.

The husband complained and the Dr. said, "Did you put a rubber over your organ as I suggested?

The husband replied, "Well, we didn't have any rubber and no organ either, so I just threw a sheet over the piano and here we are pregnant again!"

This one is old enough to have whiskers, but who knows what you've been paying attention to?

05-18-2011, 06:55 PM
We all need a big smile or a good belly chuckle every day. When something comes my way, I'll be sure to pass it on.

Actually I might have something else. Let's see if I can find it. This will be a link and not really a joke....

05-18-2011, 06:59 PM
Found it! For what it's worth, here goes.....



05-18-2011, 09:33 PM
Wow!! They had me fooled for only a moment, and that is when I read that it was supposed to be a Disney couple, having not recognized them I knew the picture was fake. I did belive the sisters picture however. :shrug:

05-28-2011, 08:20 AM
Are any of you familiar with Jeanne Robertson? I wasn't until the other day when a friend of mine sent me this link. Check out more of her "stuff" on the same page. IMO I think she's great! (Loved, "Don't send a man to the grocery store".) Jeanie


05-31-2011, 06:59 PM
Kittykins, thanks for the link to this very funny lady. Really enjoyed listening to her stories. linknit41

06-06-2011, 12:50 AM
U wanna laugh look at this then :cool:

Love your post. How could a Jeanie not be funny?

My computer has been down for quite a while. Did you miss me? Correct answer - Were you gone? Had to put in a whole new system, more memory etc. because of an insidious virus. I'm surprised this forum still recognizes my I.D. Lots to learn about Windows 7 plus more memory cards and sound blasters to manage it.
Lots of things are different - Aaaaaaaaaargh! I'll work it out. Things are coming up now that are different. I'll send anyway and see what happens.

06-08-2011, 09:47 PM
I was wondering where you were!

06-09-2011, 06:34 AM
I did miss you Jean! Glad to see you back!:woot:

06-14-2011, 06:50 PM
Not sure where I got this one. No matter. I think it's a tickle, especially for anyone who's lucky enough to have a job and is working their buns off to keep it, regardless of the demands and there are lots of you out there.

Question: Do you think it'd be more difficult to work for your boss or for the Pope?

Favorite answer: Of course it'd be easier working for the Pope.
The Pope only expects me to kiss his ring!

If you don't like this one I'll probably have to start sending blonde jokes or worse - viola jokes. Jean

06-14-2011, 07:59 PM

06-15-2011, 04:00 PM

Just shows what an erudite, astute judge of comedic consequences you are. So what else is new? Got funnies?

06-16-2011, 12:17 AM
Hope this one isn't too political...lol

A son asks his father, "What can you tell me about politics?" "OK, son, the best way I can describe politics is to use an analogy. Let's say that I'm a capitalist because I'm the breadwinner. Your mother will be the government because she controls everything, our maid will be the working class because she works for us, you will be the people because you answer to us, and your baby brother will be the future. Does that help any?" The little boy said, "Well, Dad, I don't know, but I'll think about what you said."

Later that night, after everyone had gone to bed, the little boy was awakened by his baby brother's crying. Upon further investigation, he found a dirty diaper. So, he went down the hall to his parent's bedroom and found his father's side of the bed empty and his mother wouldn't wake up. Then he saw a light on in the guest room down the hall, and when he reached the door, he saw through the crack that his father was in bed with the maid. The son then turned and went back to bed.

The next morning, he said to his father at the breakfast table, "Dad, I think I understand politics much better now." "Excellent, my boy," he answered, "What have you learned?" The little boy thought for a minute and said, "I learned that capitalism is screwing the working class, government is sound asleep ignoring the people, and the future's full of crap."

There were 11 people - ten men and one woman - hanging onto a rope
that came down from a helicopter.

They all decided that one person should get off, because if they
didn't, the rope would break and everyone would die.

No one could decide who should go, so finally, the woman gave a really
touching speech saying how she would give up her life to save the
others, because women were used to giving up things for their husbands
and children, giving in to men, and not receiving anything in return.

When she finished speaking, all the men started clapping.


06-17-2011, 03:47 PM
Sara, I've sent the 'Power of a woman" to many. The one about the little boy reminds me of another, not so bitey as yours. You know the only thin wrong with politics is that politicians are in charge of it

This one is about a little 1st grader who came home from school one day and while he was having a snack asked his mom . . . "Where did I come from?"

His mom thought it was a little early to be explaining things but, asked his dad to talk with him about it. His dad took him aside and gave him all the info about procreation that he could ever use.

When the little guy came back to the kitchen where his mom was preparing dinner, she asked, "Well, now do you understand more about how you got to be here?"

The little guy said, " Well, I'm not sure about everything dad told me and I really only asked because I have a new friend at school named Tommy - and he said he came from Chicago - so I just wondered where I came from?!!!?

You will NEVER guess what this ad is about..


Well I never guessed, and I thought it was a pretty clever ad. Jeanie

07-25-2011, 06:59 PM
So most of you will agree - we're hot! Not in any really good sense though. People are very grumpy, whiny and irritable. If I could get 4 more negatives and add a few expletives I'd have my very own take on the Snow White fairy tale.

Try to imagine "It's Sno Wonder" and her 7 deviant employees. I Don't expect to get a G rating.

For just a few moments let us forget the heat. Enjoy the following and if you like it I'll try to find more. This is from a friend in the KH.

While conducting some business at the Court House, I overheard a lady, who
had been arrested for assaulting a Mammogram Technician, say, "Your Honor,
I'm guilty but ... There were extenuating circumstances."

The female Judge said, sarcastically, "I'd certainly like to hear those
extenuating circumstances." I did too so I listened as the lady told her

"Your Honor, I had a mammogram appointment, which I actually kept. I was
met by this perky little clipboard carrier smiling from ear to ear who
tilted her head to one side and crooned, "Hi! I'm Belinda! All I need you to do
is step into this room right here, strip to the waist, then slip on this
gown. Is that clear?"

I'm thinking, Belinda, try decaf. This ain't rocket science. Belinda then
skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors. With the right side
finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) to the left and said, “Hmmmm. Can you
stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?"

"Fine," I answered. I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not
use the remaining circulation in my legs and neck to finish me off? My
body was in a holding pattern that defied gravity (with my other breast wedged
between those two 4 inch pieces of square glass) when I heard and felt a
zap! Complete darkness, the power was off!

Belinda said, "Uh-oh, maintenance is working, bet they hit a snag." Then
she headed for the door. "Excuse me! You're not leaving me in this vise
alone are you?" I shouted. Belinda kept going and said, "Oh, you fussy
puppy...the door's wide open so you'll have the emergency hall lights. I'll be
right back." Before I could shout NOOOO! She disappeared. And that's
exactly how Bubba and Earl, "maintenance men extraordinaire" found
me...half-naked with part of me dangling from the Jaws of Life and the other part smashed
between glass!

After exchanging a polite Hi, how's it going type greeting, Bubba (or
possibly Earl) asked, to my utter disbelief, if I knew the power was off.
Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as much calmness as possible,
"Uh, yes, I did but thanks anyway." "OK, you take care now" Bubba replied
and waved good-bye as though I'd been standing in the line at the grocery

Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin. Making no
attempt to suppress her amusement, she said, "Oh I am sooo sorry! The power
came back on and I totally forgot about you! And silly me, I went to lunch..
Are we upset?" And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up
between the clamps...."

The judge could hardly contain her laughter as she said "Case Dismissed!”

07-26-2011, 01:19 PM
Now I wonder where you found that hilarious story? Thanks so much for posting it! Jeanie

Wanda Witch
07-26-2011, 02:03 PM
Sitting here LMAO. Thanks, you made 'another' miserably hot day bearable. Thanks. :roflhard:

07-26-2011, 02:42 PM
Glad! If it made anybody feel a little better, thank Kittykins for the original story. I always mix up our name when I sign off.:>)

Can't help wondering where all the A's are that are being laughed off in so many messages— Oh, of course — How silly of me. They're all gathered in Washington D.C.

07-30-2011, 12:37 PM
Is *that* what happened to them... and here I thought they were parading around the country claiming to be men?

Sorry, sarcasm is my own personal brand of humour usually.

07-31-2011, 06:06 PM
Sarcasm, satire and vitriol are all fine, depending how, why and at whom they are aimed and how they are tempered.

I usually keep my big mouth under control, but not always.
I'm going to stick my neck out and put a religious based joke on the Laugh Line. Last time I put something a little edgy on I got shot down. It was ethnic, not religious but I got shot anyway. Well look at me . . . I survived!

Check out the laugh line later. With this heat — maybe much later.

07-31-2011, 07:17 PM
I try to keep my sarcasm in check. Though DH would swear I'm physically incapable of NOT being sarcastic after catching me meowing back at the most annoying cat I've ever owned in a sarcastic tone. (I don't know how I did that, but he swears I did.)

08-01-2011, 01:10 PM

Great story! Your DH should have alerted the media that his wife was guilty of animal abuse filled with sarcasm! Would that be a misdemeanor or a felony rap? Oh my, I could have fun extrapolating that one into one of my many observations.

It is, what it is . . . and I said I'd send a joke to the laugh line. That follows.

08-01-2011, 01:28 PM
A young man was torn by guilt and decided to confess his sin.

In the confessional he recited the long known liturgy, Bless me Father etc. etc. It took all the courage he had to admit that he had been stealing lumber from a job site where he was an apprentice carpenter.

His priest asked if he was truly repentant and advised that he return the lumber he stole.

The poor fellow said he really couldn't do that without getting caught and, no doubt, being fired and he had a family to feed and clothe and couldn't risk losing his job because of them.

His confessor decided to be lenient because of the circumstances and told the young man that for his penance he'd like him to make a Novena.

The relieved fellow spoke up and said, " Of course, Father! I can make a Novena—adding with enthusiasm . . . "Hell, Father. With the lumber I stole, if you want I can make you a whole new church"!

09-01-2011, 10:21 PM
OK, here's a HILARIOUS joke that I've been trying to find for the longest time...I read it years ago and couldn't find it anywhere when tonight a friend on Facebook had it posted as her status!!

A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge Heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever. At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral........I'm a gynecologist".


09-02-2011, 03:17 PM
I really needed a laugh. Thanks, Sara. Wish we could liven up more people to send some uplifting and funny stuff. I guess world conditions are against that - plus the weather. I know people in Texas and Oklahoma don't think much is funny right now. I really feel for them when a spark from a lawn mower can set off a fire that might take their house.

Somebody please send more funnies! We all need them.
P.S. Ms. reader/writer you have a PM waiting.

Enjoy! Jean

Singin' to the choir!

The choir marched down the church aisle singing a lovely psalm and the congregation was so pleased . . . until one soprano caught her high heel in a floor grate - pulled the grate out of it's mooring over a large gaping hole whose bottom was the basement heating system. She continued in step, dragging the grate as if nothing had happened.

Unfortunately, so did the tenor behind her who, without missing a beat, fell headlong into the void!

Another choir marched down a church aisle bravely singing a four part chorale. It was a beastly hot day in Texas and some of the choir members had decided to wear nothing but their robes.

One lovely girl slowed a bit and the singer behind her stepped on the hem of her robe, ripping it off!.

While the poor girl scrambled to retrieve her robe the minister facing her and waiting at the altar immediately reacted and loudly proclaimed that all the congregants should face forward and not look back because they'd be struck blind if they did.

One 90 year old fellow in the front pew turned, put a hand up, covering his right eye and said, "I"LL RISK AN EYE"!!

GUTS - Is arriving home late after a night out with the boys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the Guts to ask: 'Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?

For those of you who haven't had a belly shakin' laugh today - try this. Everyone has different perceptions. Perhaps yours will be different one day.

Enjoy, Jean

>> chicken broth, which is basically water, only with less flavor.
>> Then, in the evening, I took the MoviPrep. You mix two packets of powder

>> Then you have to drink the whole jug. This takes about an

>> and start eliminating food that you have not even eaten yet.
>> After an action-packed evening, I finally got to sleep.
>> The next morning my wife drove me to the clinic. I was very nervous. Not
>> only was I worried about the procedure, but I had been experiencing occasional
>> return bouts of MoviPrep spurtage. I was thinking, 'What if I spurt on
>> Andy?' How do you apologize to a friend for something like that? Flowers
>> would not be enough.
>> At the clinic I had to sign many forms acknowledging that I understood and totally

>> of other colonoscopy people, where I went inside a little curtained space and
>> took off my clothes and put on one of those hospital garments designed by

>> naked than when you are actually naked.
>> Then a nurse named Eddie put a little needle in a vein in my left hand.
>> Ordinarily I would have fainted, but Eddie was very good, and I was already
>> lying down. Eddie also told me that some people put vodka in their MoviPrep.
>> At first I was ticked off that I hadn't thought of this, but then I

>> When everything was ready, Eddie wheeled me into the procedure room, where Andy

>> Andy had me roll over on my left side, and the anesthesiologist began hooking

>> 'You want me to turn it up?' said Andy, from somewhere behind me.
>> 'Ha ha,' I said. And then it was time, the moment I had been dreading for
>> more than a decade. If you are squeamish, prepare yourself, because I am
