Fun Friday with a little help with my friends





GOOD FRIDAY MORNING FRIENDS - HOW ARE YOU TODAY?  




This is funny - trust me!








Subject: HOW MANY DID YOU GET RIGHT ???  Take a test Friday.
 Below is a link to a 30-question test to see how well you  know US Law. Not exactly grade-school level. Give it a shot,  and see how well you do!

 Supposedly 96 % of all High School Seniors FAILED this  test .. AND if that's not bad enough, 50+% of all individuals  over 50 did too!! Take the test and be surprised at what we  don't know. Some people actually scored 0!

 SCHOOL IS ALMOST OVER FOR THE SUMMER
 It's a frickin' elephant!
From the diary of a Pre-School Teacher:
My five-year old students are learning to read.
Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,
"Look at this! It's a frickin' elephant!"

I took a deep breath, then asked..."What did you call it?"

"It's a frickin' elephant! It says so on the picture!"

And so it does...

(scroll on down)
 
" A f r i c a n Elephant "
Hooked on phonics! Ain't it wonderful?
Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often 

 

Okay tell me your first thought? 



 


Okay what are you thinking here?






A THOUGHT FROM MAXINE - BE CAREFUL


I was in Starbucks recently when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to pass gas. The music was really loud so I timed it with the beat of the music.
After a couple of songs I started to feel better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me…
And suddenly I remembered I was listening to my iPod
…and how was your day?
That's what happens when old people start using technology !









THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

After failing the test, I'm printing the test and studying it....I'm ashamed of myself.

I'm practically rolling on the floor laughing at the I Pod and passing gas....and the frickin elephant.

I needed those laughs after flunking the test.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning, well it is still morning here. LOL Loved the entry, here is hoping that the person taking the pictures of the duck will help find the ducklin's.

Beautiful dance scene, and 94 yrs young. AMAZING!!! Great a person can keep themselves in such shape.

As I said 'good entry'.

Love from up here.

Loved that video! She puts me to shame. Liked the test too. I didn't embarrass myself too badly. I am going to try to get hubby to take it so that I can gloat. Hopefully. ;-)

I liked this one although I didn't laugh at the LOL (Little Old Lady) dancing. Not ready though for the change of attitude. AND SHE GET PAID FOR THIS! You could too

I will be back for your test. I need to run errands first.
First thought, one of them laid and egg on the grate and it fell though. I hope it wasn't a baby down there. Yikes!

The African Elephant made me laugh out loud. lol

Jean said...

I loved Matilda's dance. Wow she is 94?
I'm playing catch-up. Sometimes delays are good. I'm praying that your husband totally heals and does not need surgery in 2 weeks.

Michaele said...

This was great Chatty but the quiz was making me feel too stupid so I quit early. Sorry. Love the jokes and the last quote was perfect. How did you know my day has been filled with worry?

I got 21 on the test, guess I would need to study up to become a citizen.
That ole gal can dance. If she goes on DWS, I will watch and vote.
Have a stressless weekend.

The Brown Recluse said...

I got a 23 on the test...it said I passed, so that's a relief. (I thought I read initially 24 was passing, but it passed me.)

That was funny about the ipod. Funny as long as it NEVER happens to me!

TARYTERRE said...

My hubby and I loved the quickstep video of Mrs. Klein. My husband used to be a ballroom dancer and taught. So he really enjoyed this clip. thanks for getting us to smile. take care.

Mevely317 said...

Oh Sandie, that U.S. Law test??!!?
Here I was going along, mentally patting myself on the back ... then found my score was only 19! Reading the answers I could just kick myself ... but it was great fun and I'm "sharing the pain" with friends and family.
Hope you're enjoying a great day!
