I’m (thankfully) coming to the close of one of the most stressful weeks I’ve had in a very long time. Perhaps your week was stressful, too. Regardless, I’ve got some good, clean humor to brighten us all. First up is one of my favorite videos – “William Tell Overture Mom.” This is a classic, and one of my two sure-bet mood changers (the other is “Parent Rap.”) Below that are a few humor pieces from my collection. This is just to get us started. Do you have any clean humor that we all could enjoy? Post them and we’ll all have a little Friday Fun!
Did You Even Wonder
Can you cry under water?
How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
If money doesn’t grow on trees then why do banks have branches?
Since bread is square, then why is sandwich meat round?
Why do you have to “put your two cents in”…but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts”? Where’s that extra penny going to?
Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
What did cured ham actually have?
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
Why is it that people say they “slept like a baby” when babies wake up like every two hours?
If you drink Pepsi at work in the Coke factory, will they fire you?
Why are you IN a movie, but you are ON TV?
Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
How come we choose from just two people for President and fifty for Miss America?
Sherlock Holmes and Watson
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were going camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep.
Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: “Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see.”
Watson replied: “I see millions and millions of stars.”
Holmes said: “and what do you deduce from that?”
Watson replied: “Well, if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like earth out there. And if there are a few planets like earth out there, there might also be life.”
And Holmes said: “Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent.”
And, since I will soon become a mother-in-law, the finale…
Big Game Hunting
Against his better judgment, the big game hunter is talked into taking both his wife AND her mother along on one of his expeditions.
It does not go well. The mother-in-law is, if anything, harder to get along with in the wilds than she was in the city. And to make matters worse, she won’t even abide by the simple camp rules designed to keep the safari safe.
One night after dinner, the hunter’s wife realizes her mother is missing. Panicked, she rushes to her husband and begs him to institute a search.
He sighs, and together they set out. But before they’ve gone far, they hear throaty growling. Soon they come upon a small clearing in which the mother-in-law stands, backed up against thick, seemingly impenetrable jungle brush, and facing a huge male lion.
The wife whispers urgently, “What are we going to do?”
“Nothing whatever,” responds her husband. “The lion got himself into this mess, now let him get himself out of it.”
