Fun Friday with a little help from my friends...
(Thank you Jerry!)
In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University ..
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air.
The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.
He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.
As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife,
after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments.
Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled.
Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.
Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son.
As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and
walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing.
The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down.
The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant.
Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure.
He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.
The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs
and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
It wasn't the same elephant.
This is for everyone who sends me those heart-warming b-o-l-o-g-n-a stories. lol
(Thank you Sandra.)
It took me a second, but make sure you read the story under the picture.
Keep in mind this actually happened. This cake is for someone who was moving ...
Okay so this is how I imagine this conversation went:
Walmart Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Walmarts, how can I help you?'
Customer:' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'
Walmart Employee: 'Lemme ax what you want on da cake?'
Customer:'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.
An older man, not in the best physical condition, asked the Trainer in the gym, "I want to impress that beautiful girl. Which machine should I use?"
The trainer replied, "Use the ATM machine outside the gym!"
(Thanks again Jerry.)
The secret to long life...
A doctor on his morning walk, noticed the old lady pictured above, sitting on her front step smoking a cigar, so he walked up to her and said, "I couldn't help but notice how happy you look! What is your secret?"
"I smoke ten cigars a day," she said. "Before I go to bed, I smoke a nice big joint.
Apart from that, I drink a whole bottle of Jack Daniels every week, and eat only junk food.
On weekends, I pop pills, get laid, and don't exercise at all."
"That is absolutely amazing! How old are you?"
"Forty," she replied.
I haven't checked ' Snoops.Com ' to see if this actually works or not . . . but they say:
If you ever get the sudden URGE to run around naked,
You should sniff some Windex first.
It'll keep you from streaking.
Oh, Come On ......Lighten UP !!!! Have a Great Day! (Thank you Linda!)
Whoever is happy will make others happy, too.
