Friday Funny August 21, 2020 Double the Laughs – Twin Humor

Happy Friday!  In the midst of what has indeed been a crazy year, I have had two very good weeks.  Two weeks ago my oldest son married a wonderful young lady and last Friday my middle son and his lovely wife had twin boys.  This week I just had to share some snappy answers to few silly twin questions.

Enjoy!

Are they twins? – No, we found an extra baby in the parking lot and decided to keep it.

Are they twins? – No, the hospital was having a Buy One Get One Free special and we could not resist.

Are they twins? No, we liked our baby so much we had it cloned.

Are they twins? No, but it is amazing how life-like holograms are these days.

Are they twins? No, they are triplets. But we leave the ugly one at home.

Are they twins? Twins? Where did this second baby come from??

Are they twins? No, we always carry a stunt double.

Are they twins? We don’t know for sure. We haven’t had them tested.

Are they twins? – No, they were triplets. But the dog ate one.

 How do you manage keeping up with twins? I didn’t know there was an option.

Do twins run in your family? Let’s give them time to learn to crawl first.

Are they natural? Actually, they are supernatural. One can has super strength and the other has super vision.

Are they natural?  Actually, they are robots that suck the life out of me.

Are they natural? Actually, they are aliens from another planet light years away.

Getting My Hair Cut

The difficulty of getting a haircut is one of the multitude of inconveniences that many have had to face during this pandemic.  Fortunately for me, I have had no issues getting in to see the person who usually cuts my hair.  This is because, for the past thirty-seven years, my wife has been cutting my hair.  I am an accountant and while I do like to save money that is not the primary reason that she is the one that I go to for a haircut. 

In 1983 we were living in Ft. Worth, Texas.  I needed a haircut, so I went to a barber shop.  I came home, my wife took one look at my haircut and stated, “I could do better than that.”  So, she started cutting my hair and I thought she did a pretty good job while we lived in Texas.

Two years later we moved to Warrior, Alabama.  We were kind of in the boonies, Warrior was the closest town and it was our address but it was actually in a different county from where we lived.  I think there was only one barber in Warrior and everyone called him “Booger”.  I decided that I would rather have my wife continue to cut my hair than let someone named “Booger” touch my scalp.

So, after a few years, the pattern had pretty much been established of where I was going to get my haircut.  Then along came three boys who would also need haircuts and, of course, she cut their hair as well.  Through the years, we have gone through a few sets of clippers as well as a Flowbee period.  We really had one and it worked pretty well (if you have no clue – check out http://www.flowbee.com).  The boys are gone, but I still need haircuts and I still have my wife cut it and I do not complain, especially when she has the clippers close to my ear.

It is funny how one bad haircut in 1983 solved the problem of where to get a haircut in 2020.  It also saved a few dollars along the way.

Friday Funny August 14, 2020 Don’t Fail to Chuckle

Happy Friday!  Here is hoping this finds you well and Corona free.  Hopefully this week’s blog will make you chuckle, if I have failed at that, I will be back again next week.  We all experience failures and failure is not the end.

Enjoy!

I tried to develop a professional Hide and Seek League; however, it was a total failure.  It turned out that good players were hard to find.

I attended a board game night recently that was a complete failure.  When I showed up, it turned out that our host had absolutely no Clue.

By now it should be obvious to all that communism is a failure.  I mean just look at all those red flags.

If I had fifty cents for every time I failed a math test, I would have $7.37 now.  I once failed a calculus exam because I was seated between two identical twins and I couldn’t differentiate between them.

I once failed an English exam on Shakespeare because I used the wrong pencil.  I couldn’t tell whether it was 2B or not 2B.

——————————————————————————————————————

One day a moth goes into a dentist’s office.  The Dentist asks the moth, “what seems to be the problem?”

The moth responds, “You see my whole life is a mess. My career never got off the ground, my mortgage is underwater, I have no friends, my kids hate me, I could go on listing one failure after another.”

The dentist is very confused and asks “that does sound awful, but I’m a dentist, what is it that brings you to “my” office?”

The moth replies, “oh, the light was on.”

Sunday Funny August 2, 2020 Humor Better Late Than Never

Happy Friday! I mean Happy Sunday!  I know I am late, but better late than never, right?  I took a week of vacation last week, but am back and ready to get in the saddle again and back to work tomorrow.  So to kick off you week, a little vacation/late humor.

Enjoy!

Last week I went on a once in a lifetime vacation, never again.

Due to COVID-19, this was the first year I could not go to Switzerland for my summer vacation.  All the other years it has been due to a lack of funds.

Being punctual in my office is of no benefit.  There is never anyone around to appreciate it.

Is punctuality the art of guessing correctly now late everyone one will be?

I was late because I fell asleep beside my kitchen sink.  The plug was out and now I feel completely drained.

I was late because I did not sleep well last night.  I had a dream that I wrote The Hobbit, I might have been Tolkien in my sleep.

I was late because I fell asleep on my smartphone, it seems I accidentally downloaded a nap.

I used to be habitually late.  I went to the Doctor and she recommended sleeping in a herb garden. I know it sounds odd, but now I always wake up on Thyme.

I told my Boss that I was late because I was having computer issues.  He asked me if it was a Hard Drive.  I said, No, the commute was fine. It was my computer.”

I told my suitcases there would be no vacation this year, now I’m dealing with emotional baggage.

Is it true that basketball players cannot go on vacation because they are not allowed to travel?

Is it true that a pirate’s preferred lodging on vacation is an Arr B&B?

The other day my brother asked if i could help him come up with a way to advertise the new vacation resort he was opening up. I said “Bro-chure.”

Friday Funny June 12, 2020 Jokes At A Distance

Happy Friday!  Hoping this finds you well.  If you are getting a little tired of social distancing, I cannot change your circumstances but perhaps I can help you laugh at them for a moment.

Enjoy!

I’ve been practicing social distancing for so long that Sasquatch has a blurry picture of me hanging on his wall.

During this time of social distancing, I decided to become an entrepreneur in the coal industry.  Yep, I am mining my own business.

To fill the time while social distancing, I started a band called The Introverted Pessimists.  You’ve probably never heard of us, but that’s fine with me.

I heard schools are developing a new course on this whole distancing thing.  They will call it “anti-social studies.”

Is it true that pirates agree with each other over long distances by using their aye-phones?

Is it true that elephants communicate over long distances by elephone?

I heard that Flat Earthers are not very fond of all this social distancing.  They think it might push some over the edge.

Speaking of distancing, if Elon Musk’s space company establishes a Mars colony, and you had a girlfriend on mars, but later break up because of long distance, would she be called your Space X?

Friday Funny June 5, 2020 A Few Staycation Tips

Happy Friday!  I hope this finds you well.  While the world begins to come out of self-isolation there continues to be a lot of questions about summer travel.  Perhaps yo have already decided to hunker down for your summer vacation.  Let me offer a few tips on how you can help that staycation have a real vacation feel.

Enjoy!

Live Out of Your Suitcase – have everyone pack a suitcase for the week of staycation.  Everyone much wear only what is in the suitcase.  This will help you remember that you ALWAYS forget at least one essential item.

Create Your Own Jetlag – while everyone is asleep set all the clocks up or back three hours depending on which coast is closer.  Live on the clock schedule until the last night and then change the clocks back.

Simulated Road Trip-load your luggage, snacks and kids in the car while it is in the garage.  Sit in the car and listen to the radio for 8 hours.  Only allow bathroom breaks in the same frequency that you would if you were driving somewhere.  Kids can play games, watch videos, snack and whine just like on real trip.

TSA Check & Flight Delays – if flying is your preference to driving, set up you own TSA check point in the house.  Pretend that the family is flying on a trip.  Give everyone tickets with a time printed on them, preferably an early morning time.  Make everyone show up at your TSA checkpoint two hours before the “ticket time.”  After making everyone empty their pockets and take off their belts and shoes, tell them that the flight has been delayed three hours.  For that added airport feel, put the TV on CNN and charge them $5 for a bagel.

WiFi Passwords – reset your WiFi Passwords nightly and make everyone ask you for the new one when they need to log in.

Sand – you cannot go to the beach without bringing back some sand.  So purchase a bag of sand and sprinkle it in the car, around the house.  For that authentic feel, at night after everyone is asleep, sprinkle a little sand over the clothes in everyone’s suitcase.   Everyone will feel like they have been to the beach all day long!

Friday Funny May 29, 2020 New Chicken Farmer

Happy Friday!  I hope this finds you safe and healthy.  These days people are trying their hand at a lot of different things, some with better success than others.

Enjoy!

The Corona-virus has impacted many different aspects of our lives.  I read an article citing data from Scotts Miracle-Gor indicating that, compared to a year ago, 36% more Americans are trying to grow their own vegetables, herbs and tomatoes this year.  I came across other stories stating that raising chicken has become a popular pandemic project.  

Then there was the story about the life-long city-slicker who decided that he was going to start raising chickens.  He figured if he was going to all the trouble of raising chickens for his family, he might as well get extra chickens so that he could raise and sell them to friends and neighbors. 

He built a few large coups on his property and searched out the nearest chick supplier.  He went and purchased 100 chicks. He was excited to get started on this new and. Hopefully, profitable hobby.

Two weeks later he was back.  His chick supplier asked him how things were going. The new chicken-farmer said, “Not too good. All 100 chickens died.”  

The man replied “Oh, I can’t believe that. I’ve never had any trouble with my chickens. Tell you what, I’ll give you 100 more.”  

Another two weeks went by, and the chick supplier stopped by to see how the new batch was progressing. The new farmer just shook his head and said, “You’re not going to believe this, but the second 100 chickens died too.”  

Astounded, the chic supplier asked, “I just don’t understand.  Any idea what went wrong?”  

Well, says the new farmer, “I’m not sure. But I think I’ve narrowed it down that I am either planting them too deep or too far apart.”
