Fun Friday - Take a laugh break . . .

The following was developed as a mental age assessment by the School of Psychiatry at Harvard University . Take your time and see if you can read each line aloud without a mistake. The average person over 40 years of age cannot do it!

1. This is this cat.
2. This is is cat.
3. This is how cat.
4. This is to cat.
5. This is keep cat.
6. This is an cat.
7. This is old cat.
8. This is fart cat.
9. This is busy cat.
10. This is for cat.
11. This is forty cat.
12. This is seconds cat.

Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down.


If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull ... But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it --

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter. ....either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol -Dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead

Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead

Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.

So the Minister asked the congregation - What can you learn from this demonstration?

Maxine, who was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

That pretty much ended the service...

Just click on the year you want to listen to and then select a song.

Good Morning Sandie Sweetie...
I am so laughing at this description of a body at this age, because there are days I swear when I come home, my butt is still coming around the corner long after I have passed it. Yes I will be dragging for sure.

Oh how cute is Maxine. You know me, I love it. So cute.

I can't play the music thingy until I go home tonight. It doesn't come through at work. They have our servers locked down. I will listen tonight though.

Many thanks sweetie. Have a beautiful Friday. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

YOur posts are always so fun and interesting to read!!!!
My Mom sews some but she lives in St. Louis so that doesn't help us out much!!!
I had a sewing machine for years, but never learned how to use it, as a child I was far to energetic and wanted to be outside therefore, I never learned how to sew!!!!
My younger sister is very good at sewing, crocheting, cross stitch, etc, she is a fabulous artist as well, she is by FAR the Artistic one in the family!!!!
have a great week end

Lots in today's post!

I did great on the test, till the punch line. LOL! ;-)

Love those otters. So cute!

I'll take the chocolate to ward off worms. ;-)

Carol King was singing on the link I clicked, and I always loved her.

And I was a faithful watcher of "Get Smart"... and "The Man From Uncle." I had a crush on Napoleon Solo, and my best friend was in love with Illya Kuriakyn... or however his name was spelled! LOL!

See you week after next...

oh my gosh, Sandie, wherever you get these, they are always so funny. I liked the cat one, I was playing along with it, doing really well reading it then went back and read the third word in the sentences and just laughed! and I can relate with my body and the car analogy and Maxine's cartoons are always sooo funny!

good way to begin the weekend with laughing :)
