Friday Funny May 7, 2021 Last of the Marathon Jokes

Happy Friday! I hop e this has been a good week for you. In October 2002 I ran my first marathon. Last Saturday I ran my last, at least I am pretty sure it was my last. 26.2 miles is more than I ever thought I would run or ever wanted to run, but I enjoyed it more than I imagined I would. But, alas, age just might be catching up with me a little bit and the training just ain’t no fun no more, so I say this is it for long distance running. So let’s kick off the weekend with a little marathon humor.

Enjoy!

Training for a marathon is hard work, but it will be good for you in the long run.

Word of advice:  do not mess with a marathoner – they run the streets.

I have had a habit of using the same puns every marathon, it is kind of a running joke.

Now that I have run marathons, my work signed me up for a 401K.

I have run my last marathon, but now I am going to treat every day like I will be running a marathon tomorrow.  I am going to rest a lot and really load up on carbs!

I injured myself during an Ironman marathon the other day. Guess I got up off the couch too fast during the third film.

I heard they were trying to organize an oompah loompay marathon; however, contestants are running short.

Did you hear about the marathon runner who was sprinting at the start of the race? Apparently his pacemaker was malfunctioning.

Did you hear about that guy who planned to ran a marathon on railroad tracks? He trained a lot, but got distracted.

Did you hear that Paul McCartney has been disqualified from London Marathon? Seems he was banned on the run.

One thing you can say about Charity Marathons, they give you a run for your money.

A friend told me that he and his girlfriend broke up after they ran a marathon together.  He was pretty heartbroken, but said they had a good run.

Friday Funny April 30, 2021 Email Humor

Happy Friday! We are now one-third of the way through 2021! If you are like me, there are a lot of emails that appear on a daily basis in your inboxes. Some are informative, some are interesting, some are funny, some are annoying and many are superfluous. If you can’t beat ’em, laugh at ’em. So, let’s kick off with Friday with a few email jokes.

Enjoy!

My wife emailed me our wedding photos, but I couldn’t open any of the files. Seems I am having trouble with emotional attachments.

I asked my Spanish colleague if he could include me on an email.  He replied, “CC.”

If you get an email with the heading “Find out what everyone was talking about in 2020” don’t open it – it’s a virus.

I received an email from Google Earth proudly stating that they can now read maps backwards.  I thought to myself, “Well, that’s just spam.”

If an attorney was offering advice via the internet would that be considered E-legal?

I heard that in Russia, you cannot sign onto Facebook using your email, instead you have to use your ussrname.

If you give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.  If you teach a man to phish, he will start emailing people telling them he’s a Nigerian Prince.

I received an email the other day from a guy claiming to be an Egyptian Pharaoh, it turned out to just be a pyramid scheme.

I received an email the other day with the heading “$50 to see Justin Bieber Live!” and I wondered, “Why do I they think I would pay his ransom?”

Would the patron saint of emails be St Francis of a CC?

Friday Funny March 12, 2021 More Murphy’s Law Corollaries

Happy Friday!  The big event this weekend is Springing Forward.  I have always wondered why the time does not take effect until 2:00AM, it always wears me out to stay up that late to change my clocks!  This week, let’s consider some corollaries to Murphy’s Law.

Enjoy!

The legibility of a copy is inversely proportional to its importance.

You can always find what you’re not looking for.

Of two possible events, only the undesired one will occur.

In front of every silver lining there is a cloud.

Any problem can be overcome given enough time and money; however, there is never enough time or money.

Brilliant ideas are seldom remembered while stupid statements are seldom forgotten.

Being dead right, does not make one less dead.

A bird in the hand is worth whatever someone will bid for it on eBay.

A committee has the capacity to make a decision that is worse than any of its members could make individually.

A penny saved is not worth as much as it used to be.

You can always find research will tend to support your theory.

You can always find what you’re not looking for.

Opportunity always knocks at the least opportune times.

For every vision there is an equal and opposite revision.

For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Every solution produces a new and opposite problem.

Friday Funny March 5, 2021 Do You See What I Did Here?

Happy Friday! The days are getting a bit longer and a bit warmer, we can almost see the end of winter!  Seems like things that I go to look for have a habit of disappearing, so this week I picked out some disappearing jokes. Hope you see them before they are gone.

Enjoy!

Are bassists considered cowardly because they disappear at the first sign of treble?

Have you heard the one about the disappearing magician?  Apparently it was just a stage he was going through.

I saw a Mexican magician who said he was going to make himself disappear on the count of three.  He said, Uno.. Dos.. And then he vanished without a Tres.

Did the German Christmas cake disappear or was it stollen?

Do old magicians retire or do they simply disappear?

This morning my hands disappeared mysteriously.  I can’t really point my finger at what caused it.

I had a friend who landed a job at Finland’s national airline.  I have not heard from him for ages, it seems he just disappeared into Finnair.

One day I was out on a boat, some distance from the shore, when a massive hand suddenly rose out of the water and then slowly disappeared.  I thought, “Now that is the biggest wave I have ever seen.”

In the middle of the night, I had a vision of a fluffy, white lamb hovering at the foot of my bed, then it disappeared, as I lay frozen in fear. I think it might have been sheep paralysis.

Finally, a word of advice, never disappear, they are very sensitive fruits.
