Friday’s Funnies

Gearing up for the Author Showcase this Saturday at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, so I have been busy this week. Today I just have a few funnies to share, and then I will be offline for a couple of days.


This first bit of nonsense… er, fun, was sent by a good friend who knows about being a Seenager –  just like me.

GREAT NEWS !!!!!  I just figured it out…
I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)
I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.
I don’t have to go to school or work.  I get an allowance (pensions).
I have my own pad.  I don’t have a curfew.
I have a driver’s license (so far) and my own car.
I have ID that gets me into bars and the Beer Store.
The people I hang around with are not scared of
getting pregnant and I don’t have acne.
  Life is great.

I truly enjoyed these from another friend:


1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

2. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

3. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

4. A day without sunshine is like, well, night.

5. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

6. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.

7. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

8. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.

9. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

10. The things that come to those who wait may be the things left by those who got there first.

11. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

12. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

13. God gave you toes as a device for finding furniture in the dark.

14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of twelve people who weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Which of the Murphy’s Laws resonated with you? Number 12 made me laugh out loud. Probably because I have four or five flashlights and none of them work.

Have a great weekend and do come back on Sunday for my review of a delightful illustrated story for readers of all ages, The Upside of Iris by Helen Rose

  1. Thanks, I needed this today. The law that made me laugh out loud was #11 — I remember some family fishing vacations that were conducted exactly that way. It was a miracle anyone ever came home with a catch big enough for a fish fry.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the laws, Patricia. I used to go fishing a lot, sans beer, but catching a fish was not the primary purpose for the outing. So we were not horribly disappointed if we didn’t catch anything. Just enjoyed being outdoors for a while.
