Friday Funny July 19, 2019 A Dose of Will Rogers

Happy Friday!  As we come to the end of another week, it seems like a good time to reflect on some words of a wise man from a few years back.


What the country needs is dirtier fingernails and cleaner minds.

Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.

Rail splitting produced an immortal President in Abraham Lincoln; but golf, with 20 thousand courses, hasn’t produced even a good, A number-1 Congressman.

There is no credit to being a comedian, when you have the whole Government working for you. All you have to do is report the facts. I don’t even have to exaggerate.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.

The more you observe politics, the more you’ve got to admit that each party is worse than the other.

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Rumor travels faster, but it don’t stay put as long as truth.

Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for. 

Congress is so strange; a man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens, and then everybody disagrees. 

Never blame a legislative body for not doing something. When they do nothing, they don’t hurt anybody. When they do something is when they become dangerous. 


“Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.” ~John Quinton

Friday Funny June 28, 2019 Before Computers

Happy Friday!  We have come to the last Friday in June and 2019 is almost halfway gone!  Time continues to fly by.  Among many things that have impacted my life is the advent of computers and their effect on every aspect of life including language.


Before Computers:
Java was what you drank in the morning
An application was something you filled out for a job
A program was on television
A cursor was someone who used profanity
A keyboard was on a piano

Memory was something that you lost with age
Uploading what was you did to a pickup truck
The only directory I knew was the yellow pages
Shareware was the hand-me-down clothes you received from relatives
Windows were what you looked out of
A monitor was someone who watched what you were doing
Booting up what something you did before going out in the snow
Google was a really big number that no one ever used
Yahoo was a person of questionable intelligence
Oracle was a very wise and respected person
Unencrypt sounded like something from a bad horror movie
Ethernet sounded like something an anesthesiologist would use
Debugging was done with insect repellent
C++ was something you did not want to see on your report card
Crashing was what you tried to avoid in your car
A Byte was a quick snack
Compress was something you did to garbage  
Zip was something you did to your pants
Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
A backup was what you wanted to prevent in your toilet
Cut – you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider’s home

Friday Funny June 14, 2019 Things You Never Heard Dad Say

Happy Friday!  This Sunday is Father’s Day.  If you are fortunate to have your Dad around, take time to let him know what he means to you.  If you Dad is gone, take time to reflect on a few pleasant memories that you have of him.



They just don’t have enough commercials during football games.

I noticed that all your friends have a certain disrespectful and defiant attitude.  Why aren’t you more like that?

Guess I better just stop and ask for directions.

You know Sweetie, now that you’re thirteen, I think you should start dating.

Here’s a credit card and the keys to my new car — GO CRAZY.

Your Mother and I are going away for the weekend … you might want to consider throwing a party.

No son of mine is going to live under this roof without an earring — now quit your belly-aching, and let’s go to the mall.

No why would you want to get a job for? I make plenty of money for you to spend.

Let me hold your purse while you try that on.

Let’s watch another Hallmark Christmas Movie tonight!.

Dancing to Kidz Bop at top volume is way better than listening to my boring music.

Music today is so much better than the stuff I listened to when I was your age.

I think that umpire is just doing a wonderful job today.

I have been hankerin’ for a nice salad and quiche all day.

Friday Funny June 7, 2019 Dialing Up Some Laughter

Happy Friday and welcome to June! I think we had the same phone (with a rotary dial) from the time I was born until I went away to college.  Now, you cannot get a cell phone to last the two years that it takes to pay for it.  It appears that it is just about time to replace my cell phones which had me looking for a little phone-related humor this week.


I was once in a job interview when the hiring manager handed me his laptop and said, “I want you to try and sell this to me.” Well, I got up, put it under my arm, walked out of the building and went home. About an hour later, he called my cell and said, “Bring my computer back right now!” I said, “$250 and it is yours.”

I recently went to a movie. I choose an aisle seat because it feels a little roomier. Just as the feature was about to start, a lady gets up from the center of the row got up and starts working her way out. “Excuse me, sorry, oops, excuse me, pardon me, …” By the time she got to me, I was getting a bit perturbed, so I asked, “Couldn’t you have done this a little earlier?” “No!” she said in a loud whisper. “The ‘TURN OFF YOUR CELL PHONE PLEASE’ message just flashed up on the screen and I left mine in the car.”

How can you tell which one of your friends has the newest iPhone? Don’t worry, they’ll be sure to let you know.

I accidentally dropped my cell phone from the balcony on the twentieth floor, fortunately it was in airplane mode.

Phones are getting thinner and smarter. People, well that is another story…

If you cross a telephone with an iron would you get a smooth operator?

Would a lobster answer the phone by saying “shello”?

Did the cell phone need to wear glasses because it had lost its contacts?

Chuck Norris’ phone never auto corrects him.

Chuck Norris can text using a rotary phone.

Chuck Norris doesn’t dial the wrong number, you pick up the wrong phone.

Friday Funny May 31, 2019 Kentucky Ghost Story

Happy Friday!  I hope this finds you and yours doing well.  This week a lot of folks are dealing with the aftermath of severe storms, some of which hit the neighborhood where I grew up in Dayton, Ohio.  So, be careful when the weather turns ugly.

Be Safe!


This happened a number of years ago just outside a little town in the foothills of the Appalachians.  It may sound like the story line from an Alfred Hitchcock movie; however, it is a true story.

There was a guy out hitchhiking which was not all that uncommon a few decades ago.  He was a couple of miles from the nearest town and it was very cloudy, moonless twilight, almost pitch-black.  Then to make matters even worse, a torrential thunder storm quickly developed as he made his way down the dark and lonely road. Time passed slowly and no cars went by. The rain was so hard that he could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Then to his surprise, he saw a car moving slowly approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain. It slowly crept toward him and stopped.  Needing a ride in the worst way, he jumped in the car and closed the door.  His relief quickly disappeared when he looked around and realized that there was no one else in the car, there was nobody behind the wheel!

The car slowly started moving again which terrified the weary hitchhiker but he was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. After a few minutes he noticed that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve.  Still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and beg for his life.  He was sure the ghost car would go off the road into who knows what.  Then, suddenly, just before the curve, a hand appeared thru the driver’s window and slowly turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend. Paralyzed with even more fear, he watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve. When he could take no more, scared to near death, he jumped out of the car and ran to town.

Wet, tired and in shock, he went into a diner and, with a quavering voice ordered a cup of coffee. He then proceeded to tell everyone about his supernatural experience. A silence enveloped the room and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth and not just some lunatic.

About half an hour later two more weary and rain-soaked guys walked into the diner.  They spot the first traveler.  One of the two turns to the other and says, “Look Elmer! There’s that yahoo who jumped in our car while we were pushing it in the rain!”

Friday Funny May 24, 2019 Food Puns to Chew On

Happy Friday!  This weekend is te unofficial start of summer!  As you relax and cook-out, please take a few minutes to reflect on why we have Memorial Day.  Here are a few food puns you can share around the grill this weekend.


Did the pig go into the kitchen because he felt like bacon?

When vegetables throw a part do they hire a DJ to tunip the beet?

Did the hot-dog bun look up to the sourdough bun because he saw it as a roll model?

Did the conceited pickle think he was a really big dill?

I try to avoid sad salads because they tend to kale my vibe.

Did the ice cream truck breakdown because of the rocky road?

I don’t order Chinese tea because it takes an oolong time to brew it.

Did you hear about the angry waffle that just flipped?

I dropped a hot dog but it could have been wurst.

It always seems like thyme stands still when I am with you.
