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

He who laughs, lasts.

Men Are Just Happier People.
Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack.
You can never be pregnant.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks and engines.
A ten-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
Your underwear is $5.00 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
Everything on your face stays its original colour.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one colour for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.
No wonder men are always happy and never depressed!

FOR Better Or Worse

The older you are and the longer you have been married,the funnier this is.

The wife and I were sitting around the breakfast table one lazy Sunday morning. I said to her, "If I were to die suddenly, I want you to immediately sell all my stuff."

"Now why would you want me to do something like that?" she asked.

"I figure that you would eventually remarry and I don't want some obnoxious jerk using my stuff."

She looked at me and said: "What makes you think I'd marry another obnoxious jerk?"

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and
wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out
to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured,
educated and happy.

Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think,
Good grief, look how smart I am!

(Thanks Cheri)

The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a very cold winter.

It must be true because the squirrels are gathering NUTS .

Three of my neighbors have disappeared..

Are you O.K.?
(Thanks Jerry)

Chatty is missing - some squirrels took her! (my own joke!)

I did enjoy my early morning ride here Sandie, as usual. A great start to my morning. BTW, I'm probably the smartest, most cultured and educated bloggy friend you have based on an item you posted here ;)

varunner said...

Always enjoy smiling w/ your funny fridays :-)

Sandra said...

The world is your urinal.
this is my favorite since i have always always been jealous of this fact, as a child, we stopped for me to use the bushes, my brother had a jar with a lid, that is waht i always wanted. also men can hold it for an 8 hour trip,while i have to stop every hour.

Sr. Ann Marie said...

Sandie, thanks for the getting back to me. Your suggestion about pictures is really helpful. Hope you have a good weekend!

That corgi :) said...

I did enjoy the ride today, Sandie! I loved the why men never get depressed, there's a lot of truth in that indeed!! (although I did figure out what a light meant that came on, on my dashboard in the van the other morning; I got online and researched it and was able to act intelligent when talking with hubby about it :)

all cute funnies and comics! thanks for a good way to start a work day :)


Knitty said...

I liked all the jokes but the video made me laugh out loud! Thank you so much!

Melanie said...

That was so funny! I really like the one about men never getting depressed. :)

Ginny said...

Yes, it is never a post, but a RIDE with you! I love the list of why men are happy and that dog commercial!

Sharon Kirby said...

Oh honestly!! What would I do without your sense of humor! You are just the right kind of hysterical - witty and irreverent - and just a little "off-color" from time to time!! PERFECT...

Loved "Men Never Get Depressed" - One last thought. Fixing sagging parts only requires medication, not surgery...

By the way, I DID check out my rear end today...I'm a GENIUS!!

xoxo you!

Susan said...

That was great, as usual. You always post the best stuff - funny and uplifting. I appreciate that! You must be really busy! I am too - today I'm writing Christmas cards and packing everything up for the post office on Monday and then I can relax.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
