Saturday Silliness

I'll start today with a little Dr. Seuss for Grown Ups and Older Folks:

 I feel a little "Dr. Phil" influence on this first one!

 And for this is for those fans of micro brews and other ales.

 I think no explanation is required here!

And this last one is for those among us who've reached The Golden Years!


Middle age is when broadness of the mind

and narrowness of the waist change places.



Well, a Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other.  Finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato,  which they called, "Yam."  Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.  When it was time, they told her about the facts of life.  They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she
wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots.

Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!  But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either.  She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.

When she went off to Europe. , Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland ..and the greasy guys from France called the French Fries.  When she went out west, they warned her to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped..

Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high-class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on trucks that say, "Frito Lay."

Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.  In spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Brian Williams.   Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset!  They said, "You can't possibly marry Brian Williams, because he's just  (Are you ready for this?)

(Are you sure?)

(OK!  Here it is!)





In case you didn't know...

Women are Angels

And when someone breaks our wings....

We simply continue to fly....

On a broomstick....

We’re flexible like that.


The Storm

They were together in the House.  Just the two of them.  It was a cold, dark, stormy night. The storm had come quickly, and each time the thunder boomed he watched her jump.  She looked across the room and admired his strong appearance...and Wished that he would take her in his arms, comfort her and protect her from the storm.

Suddenly, with a pop, the power went out.... She screamed...He raced to the sofa where she was cowering.  He didn't hesitate to pull her into his arms.  He knew this was a forbidden union and
expected her to pull back.  He was surprised when she didn't resist but instead clung to him.  The storm raged on...They knew it was wrong...Their families would never understand... So consumed were they in their FEAR that they heard no opening of doors...just the faint click of a camera......
