Friday Funny December 14, 2018 Some Interesting Christmas Song Lyrics

Happy Friday!  We are at the midpoint of December and Christmas is only a couple of weeks away.  No doubt you hare hearing a lot of Holiday music, but are you really hearing the lyrics to the old, familiar songs?  Some of them make you stop and go “hmmm.”

Enjoy!

Frosty the Snowman

“Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal”

I have previously stated I am not a big fan of Frosty.  That being said, this song has some seriously flawed theology, as do many popular Christmas songs by the way.  Three quick problems with the above lyrics: 1) a snowman does not have a soul, jolly or otherwise; 2) should a snowman be teaching children to smoke with his corn cob pipe?  Shouldn’t he be avoiding all forms of heat?; 3) everyone knows that a snowman’s nose is supposed to be a carrot, not a button!

The Wassail Song

“Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand’ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,”

I have never in my life gone a a-wassailing and not sure I know anyone who has.  It is December, if I am among the leaves where I live, they are not green, they are brown and blowing around.

Up on the House Top

“Next comes the stocking of little Will
Oh, just see what a glorious fill
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Also a ball and a whip that cracks
Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick”

What better gift for a little boy than a hammer, tacks and a whip?  What could possibly go wrong here?  And while you at it, let’s all go up on the roof and try to enter the house via the chimney.

Santa Claus Is Coming to Town

“You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
He’s making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
He sees you when you’re sleepin’
He knows when you’re a wake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake”

Ominous, threatening and down-right creepy.  Let’s the kids sing this and it will not be visions of sugar plums that will be dancing through their heads.

There Is No Place Like Home for the Holidays

“Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home!

I met a man who lives in Tennessee, and he was headin’ for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down to Dixie’s sunny shore
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific!”

Pining is something I do not do a lot of and when the traffic is moving at 5 mph “terrific” is not how I would describe it.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

“Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring some out here

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year

We won’t go until we get some
We won’t go until we get some
We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here”

We are at your house and we are making demands and will not leave until they are satisfied – is that the real spirit of the Season?  Of all the things to demand, not sure figgy pudding would be at the top of anyone’s list.

“It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!” ~ Charles Dickens

Friday Funny November 30, 2018 That Town Was So Small….

Happy Friday! We have made it to the end of November, the holidays are upon us and a new year is just around the corner.  

My work takes me to a lot of different places from cities to small towns.  I was recently in a small town, a really, really small town.

Enjoy!

I was in a town that was so small…….

There was a City Jail, it was called amoeba, because it only had one cell.

There was Fire Department but instead of hoses, they used water pistols. 

There was a Road Department, they spread salt on the roads using a salad shooter. 

There was a McDonald’s but it only had one Golden Arch.

There was not a 7-11, but there was a 3&1/2 – 5&1/2.

There was a Second Street but it is in the next town over.

There was a golf course, but it only  had three holes.

There used to be a zoo, but it closed when the hamster died.

The “Welcome To” and “Leaving” city limits signs are both on the same post.

They had a boxing match and both men had to sit in the same corner.

Friday Funny November 23, 2018 Thanksgiving Weather Forecast

Happy Friday and Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you were able to enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and took time to reflect on the blessings that are all too frequently easy to overlook.

Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Weather Forecast

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an
afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and
humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe
squall or cold shoulder. 

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a
knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation
of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift
across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots
on the other. Please pass the gravy. 

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for
the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the
beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and
taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the
refrigerator. 

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat
sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be
expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup
late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup
develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as
the only wish left will be the bone.

Q: Why do you get if you divide the circumference of a pumpkin by its diameter?
A:  Pumpkin Pi

Thought for the Week

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.” – Abraham Lincoln – 1863

Friday Funny November 16, 2018 Rindercella

Happy Friday! Seems like Old Man Winter is itching to get going this year.

I heard today of the passing of Roy Clark.  I will admit that I watched Hee-Haw, in fact I watched it a lot which may explain several things.  But anyway, it brought to mind all the jokes and skits I saw on Hee-Haw.  One of my favorite that I have always remembered was Archie Campbell’s spoonerism of Cinderella that also featured Roy Clark.  So here is the script of Rindercella as well as a link to watch the Hee-Haw clip.

Enjoy and don’t forget to slop your dripper!

Archie Campbell with Roy Clark on HeeHawhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FcUc2Tk0GQ&t=49

Once apon a time, in a coreign fountry, there lived a geautiful birl and her name was Rindercella. Now, Rindercella lived with her mugly other and two sad bisters. Also in this same coreign fountry, there was a very prandsome hince.

Now this prandsome hince was going to have a bancy fall. And he invited the people from riles amound, especially the pich reople.

Now Rindercella’s mugly other and her two sad blisters, they went out to buy some drancy fesses to wear to this bancy fall. But Rindercella couldn’t go because all she had to wear were some old rirty dags.
So, finally the night of the bancy fall arrived and Rindercella couldn’t go, so she just cat down and shried. And she was kitten there shrien, when all at once there appeared before her, her gairy mudfather. And he touched her with his wagic mand … and there appeared before her, a cig boach and hix white sorses to take her to the bancy fall. But he said, “Now, Rindercella, you be sure and be home before nidmight, or I’ll purn you into a tumpkin!”

When Rindercella arrived at the bancy fall, this prandsome hince met her at the door because he had been watchin’ all this time behind a wooden hindow. And Rindercella and the prandsome hince nanced all dight. And they lell in fove. And all at once, the mid clock struck night. And Rindercella staced down the rairs, and just as she beached the rottom, she slopped her dripper!

So, the next day this prandsome hince went all over this coreign fountry looking for the geautiful birl who had slopped her dripper. Finally he came to Rindercella’s house. Well, he tried it on her mugly other and it fidn’t dit. Then he tried it on her two sigly usters and it fidn’t dit. Then he tried it on Rindercella and it fid dit. It was exactly the sight rize!

So they got married and lived heverly after hapwards. Now, the storal of the mory is this: If you go to a bancy fall and you want to have a pransome hince loll in fove with you, don’t forget to slop your dripper!

The drifting clouds are dark and drear,
The blossoms die of cold and fear,
The wild wind mourns the fading year,
And winter threatens near.

Friday Funny November 2, 2018 There Are Two Kinds of People

Happy Friday and welcome to November.  The leaves are turning and fall is in the air.  While there may be four seasons, it seems like there are basically two kinds of people.

Enjoy!

There are two kinds of people, the givers and the takers. The takers may eat better, but the givers sleep better.—Anonymous

There are two kinds of people, those who have lost data due to a system crash, and those who will. — Mike Epstein

There are two kinds of people in the world.  Those concerned about getting the work done and those concerned about getting credit for it.

There are two kinds of people, those who we are happy to see coming and those who we are happy to see going.

There are two kinds of people, those who think I am funny and those with absolutely no sense of humor.

There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and 

There are two kinds of people, those who can extrapolate from incomplete information

There are two types of people in the world.  Those with a short attention span and…squirrel!!

There are two types of people in the world.  Those that can keep secrets, and I can’t tell you about the others.

There are two kinds of people, those who believe there are two kinds of people, and those who know better. – Anonymous

There are two kinds of people and the first kind of person is sort of like the person who tends to use a lot of run-on sentences without any punctuation while the other kind of person paradoxically speaking is a person who does not tend to use run-on sentences that much and that my friend is the two kinds of people who are in the world as we have it today.

There are two kinds of people in the world.  There are those who like to repeat themselves and those who like to repeat themselves.

There are two kinds of people in the world.  Those that put people into groups and those that do not.

There are two kinds of people in the world.  Those that tend to bifurcate the population in an effort to delineate and ameliorate their understanding of current trends and those that just looked up bifurcate and ameliorate.

There are 6/3 kinds of people in the world.  Those that get fractions, and those who do not.

There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don’t.

Actually there are three kinds of people in the world, those who can count and those who can’t.
