Friday Funny November 1, 2019 More Lessons From Horror Movies

Happy Friday!  Happy November!  Hopefully you have not already eaten all of your leftover Halloween candy yet – pace yourself and spread it out for a few weeks.  Besides Trick-or-Treat this is the time of year that a lot of horror movies are being played on TV and streaming services.  These movies besides offering entertainment also offer some valuable life lessons and this week I would like to share a few of them with you.


* Avoid exploring abandoned places.  While getting off the beaten path may sound appealing, it is just not worth the risk.  Go where there are people, lots and lots of people.

* Do not stop, even for a moment if you are somewhere so remote that that there is no cellphone coverage.  Keep moving until you have at least two bars.

* Just avoid camping, it is not safe.  Even if nothing evil happens, a nice hotel is a lot more comfortable.

* Do not trust anyone that you meet on an isolated road no matter how nice they seem or how dire his (they tend to always be male) circumstances are.  Do not believe his story, just keep going. 

* Do not trust anyone you meet in a small, quaint town that you never knew existed.  They always SEEM nice at first – just keep moving.

* If that dream house in a relaxing setting appears too good to be true there is a reason.  The real estate agent will not tell you about the ax murderer who lived there or about the walls that bleed at night.

* Keep an open mind.  If strange things are happening and someone suggests a really weird, out-of-left field kind of theory, don’t just dismiss it.  The wilder it is, the more likely it is to be correct.

* Exit through the front door as quickly as possible.  Never, under any circumstances, run up the stairs if you are being chased.

* Beware of mirrors.  They may seem harmless but they often are the first place where strange, evil beings appear.  Do not ask questions to mirrors.  Do not repeat names while staring into a mirror.

* If you find a nice, impressive, shiny object just left at the side  of the road, assume that it is either possessed or a source of great evil.

Friday Funny October 11, 2019 Bungals

Happy Friday!  The NFL is entering into week 6 and there are 4 teams that have yet to win their first game.  Among those is the once-again bottom dwelling Bengals.  In 1970 the Cleveland Browns traded Paul Warfield who was my favorite player and that was  the end of be being a Browns fan.  I rooted for the Bengals through thick and thin (there was a lot more thin) for forty years.  At the conclusion of the 2010 season I made what has appeared to be a wise choice and decided to just not care about the Bengals or the NFL any longer.  However, just because I do not consider myself a fan any longer, does not mean that I cannot have a laugh at the expense of the Bengals.

Friday Funny Septermber 27, 2019 A Quick and Easy Quiz

Happy Friday and Happy Fall!  Let’s kick off this Friday with some mental calisthenics.


Ten quick questions to get your brain working and kick start your Friday.  You should be able to answer these quickly. No pencil or paper required! Time to prove that you are the sharpest pencil in the box!  Good Luck!

First Question:  If you spell “sit in the tub” s-o-a-k, and you spell “a funny story” j-o-k-e, how do you spell “the white of an egg”?


a-l-b-u-m-e-n or e-g-g w-h-i-t-e – hopefully this question did not leave you with y-o-k-e on your face. Get back on track with number two! 


Second Question: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?


If your answer is that you are first, that would be incorrect. If you overtake the second person, you are now in second place!  Maybe you should get some more coffee before going further.


Third Question: What word would you use to describe a man who does not have all his fingers on one hand?


Given that people usually have half their fingers on each hand, I think normal would be a good word,


Fourth Question: Before Mount Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?


Wouldn’t Mount Everest still have been the highest mountain in the world even though it had not been discovered?


Fifth Question: How much dirt is there in a hole three feet deep, six feet long and four feet wide?


If there was any dirt in it, would it still be a hole?  The good news is that you have halfway through.


SIXTH QUESTION: You are participating in a race. If you overtake the last person, what place are you in?


If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. How can you overtake the LAST person? Perhaps your brain has started the weekend a little early this week?


Seventh Question: If you have twelve fish and half of them drown, how many remain?


Twelve – they are FISH – how could they drown??


Eighth Question:  Math alert!!  Do this in your head!  Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator.  

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 30.

Add another 1000.

Now add 20.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 10.

What is the total?


Did you get 5000? That is nice and incorrect! The correct answer is actually 4100. Do not take my word for it – get that calculator out and check.  Two more to go – finish strong! 


Ninth Question: If an electric train is moving north at 80 mph and the wind is blowing to the west at a steady 15 mph, which direction does the smoke blow?


Given that it is an ELECTRIC train, there will be no smoke.  One more chance.


Tenth and Last Question: Mary’s father has five daughters: Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono.  What is the name of the fifth daughter?


Nunu? Nana? Nene? NO! NO! NO! The fifth daughter’s name
is Mary. Read the question again.

Now that your brain is limbered up and ready to go – have a great weekend!
