I'm sick of February so how about a new laugh line?
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.

EVER WONDER . . . .

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

That's worthy of a copy/paste to share far and near.

I actually love February. Maybe because it's different than all of the rest of the months and even more different every 4 years .........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)

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

Where's Demonica? Queen of jokedom!
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

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?...

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.

Well Jean if I have to go, I can think of worse ways than laughing myself to death. I just don't have any funnies to post here right now, but if I run across something I'll be sure to share.

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!



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."
