Friday Funny November 27, 2015 The 12 Days of Thanksgiving


Happy Black Friday! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving Day. Although we are in the midst of uncertain times, there is still much to be thankful for as we enter this holiday season.  Here is a something that has been circulating the internet for a number of years that shows there is a limit to how long one can be thankful for turkey.


On the First Day….. We give thanks for the fresh turkey feast and its hot trimmings.

On the Second Day….. We bless the cold turkey sandwiches, sloshy cranberry sauce, and hard rolls.

On the Third Day….. We praise the turkey pie and vintage mixed veggies.

On the Fourth Day….. We thank the pilgrims for not serving bison that first time, or we’d be celebrating Thanksgiving until April.

On the Fifth Day….. We gobble up cubed bird casserole and pray for a glimpse of a bare turkey carcass.

On the Sixth Day….. We show gratitude (sort of) to the creative cook who add cashews and noodles to the turkey and calls it Oriental.

On the Seventh Day….. We forgive our forefathers and pass the turkey-nugget pizza.

On the Eighth Day….. The word ”vegetarian” keeps popping into our heads.

On the Ninth Day….. We check our hair to make sure we’re not beginning to sprout feathers.

On the Tenth Day….. We hope that the wing meat kabobs catch fire under the broiler.

On the Eleventh Day….. We smile over the creamed gizzard because the thigh bones are in sight.

On the Twelfth Day….. We apologize for running out of turkey leftovers. And everybody says, “Amen!”

Thought for the Week

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Father in heaven,
We thank thee.

Friday Funny November 20, 2015 Work Vs. Prison


Happy Friday! Some days we might feel like work is something we have been sentenced to with no chance of parole.  This has been circulating for a number of years, but just in case you ever got work and prison confused, this should make things a bit more clear.


IN PRISON you spend the majority of your time in an 10 x 10  cell.
AT WORK you spend the majority of your time in a 6 X 8 cubicle.

IN PRISON you get three meals a day.
AT WORK you only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON you get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK you get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK you must carry around a security card and open all the doors for yourself.

IN PRISON you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON you get your own toilet.
AT WORK you have to share.

IN PRISON they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK you are not supposed to even speak to your family.

IN PRISON all expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required.
AT WORK you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON you must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK they are called bosses and managers.
