Saturday Silliness

Scary Thoughts:

"The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket."

"The only two things we do with greater frequency in middle age are urinate and attend funerals ."

"After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching may be dead." 

"Do you realize that in about forty years, we'll have millions of old ladies running around with tattoos and pierced navels?" (Now that's scary!)


A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the 'Chicken Surprise'.The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.
'Good grief, did you see that?' she asks her husband. He hasn't, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down.

Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.

'Please sir,' says the waiter, 'what you order?'

The husband replies, 'Chicken Surprise.'
'Ah! So sorry,' says the waiter, 'I brought you Peeking Duck'.
(please ... no fowl language!)


They were dressed and ready to go out for the New Year’s Eve Party

He turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered their pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard.

They phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi.

The taxi arrived and they opened the front door to leave the house. 

As they walked out the door, the cat he had put out in the yard, ran back into the house.

They didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird.
The wife went on out to the taxi, while he went back inside to get the cat.

The cat runs upstairs, with him in hot pursuit.

Waiting in the cab, his wife didn't want the driver to know that the house would be empty for the night, so she explained to the taxi driver that her husband would be out soon,  She said, "'He's just going upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later, he got into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' he said, as they drove away.  'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her ass with a coat hanger to get her to come out!  She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me.   But it worked! I hauled her fat ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!  She better not shit in the vegetable garden again!'

The silence in the cab was deafening.


Finally a computer setting I understand!

I'm loving all of these hilarious jokes. I'm 34 and I am just starting to learn about the aches thing. It's a painful realization.

Laughing at your awards thing. As someone that accepts them, but doesn't really do anything with them, I feel for you.

Oh God Eva....I roared over the Peeking Duck one!! That's definitely a keeper! You are too funny. Thanks for your humor....I needed that this morning. And thanks for always coming by my blog....I appreciate that.

Funny stuff, as always. It's come to a point where hubs will ask me on Saturdays "what does the retired lady have today?" Sorry Eva, it's nothing personal. He's terrible with names. I think half the reason he calls me hon or honey is because he has to think too long about what my name is! After close to 30 years together, I still do a double take when he actually says it!

Have a great weekend!
