Fun Friday with a little help from my friends .....


FUN FRIDAY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY  FRIENDS














INNOCENCE IS PRICELESS (Thank you Kim).

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it.
The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the priest walked up; stood beside the little boy; and said quietly, "Good morning, Alex."
"Good morning. Father," he replied, still focused on the plaque. "Father, what is this?"
The priest replied, "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.
Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked,

"Which service, the 9:30 or the 5:00?"

 This test is to ascertain your mental state now. If you get one right you are doing ok if you get none right you better go for counseling.

Giraffe Test
There are 4 questions. Don’t miss one.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll down...


The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

2 How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions..

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals
attend .... Except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer : The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory.. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and
You do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer:? You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the
Professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson
Consulting says this conclusively proves the theory that most professionals do not have the brains of a four-year-old.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

This four year old brain loves the picture of the black and yellow labs. They look so much like the ones that one of my sons has. They do love their treats and this grand'ma' spoils them when I go to visit. I love the quote at the end too. We can choose to be positive. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

Susannah said...

Paula said...

Love the zebra cartoon. Reminds me of one that hung for years behind the counter of a restaurant here. It was a zebra with it's stripes unwinding and falling to the floor. It said something about stress, wish I could remember what.

Hanging my head in shame over here ... not ONE stickin' time did I get the right answer! (Perhaps I need a glass of wine and quit over-thinking!)

Oh, and I just laughed OUT-LOUD at the little boy in church. I wonder if this didn't really happen?

Have a super Sunday! :)

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie, dear friend,
Oh! I just love cartoons.
They inspire with funny messages.
You have made me thoroughly cracked up, laughed my head off.
I really laughed out loud...
The elephant video is a great one.
Thank you for sharing your love!
We all need good friends.
We all love feedback in our lives.
I do not judge people from the outside, we may all have issues.
Thank you for sending me some of your friends! I only reply whenever I can due to issues.
Have a great weekend, Sandie, and beloved ones!
Warm Hugs,
Starry.

Thank you all these brought a smile to my face and I like the video....

Jim said...

I think the cat is using "fuzzy math" in trying to not get a dog. Your zebra cartoons are neat. Some transplants look like his.

The "Shirley and Jenny" video was sad. Have you read the book, "Water for the Elphants?" It is sad too, in places. Oh yes, I did get the second question right. The others were tricky.
