Fun Friday


Thanks Angela

On a transatlantic flight, a plane passes through a severe storm.

The turbulence is awful, and things go from bad to worse when one wing is struck by lightning.

One woman, in particular,loses it... Screaming, she stands up in the front of the plane.

'I'm too young to die,' she wails.

Then she yells, 'If I'm going to die, I want my last minutes on earth to be memorable!'

Is there anyone on this plane who can make me feel like a WOMAN?'

For a moment there is silence.

Everyone has forgotten their own peril.

They all stare, eyes riveted, at this desperate woman in the front of the plane.

Then a cowboy from Alberta stands up in the rear of the plane.

He is handsome, well built, with dark brown hair and blue eyes.

He starts to walk slowly up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt, one button at a time.

No one moves.

He removes his shirt. Muscles ripple across his chest.

She gasps.

He whispers . . .

"Iron this. Then get me a beer."

4 Worms in Church (Thanks Angela)

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 did you learn from this Demonstration?"

Maxine 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!

Thanks Angela

Thanks Jerry.

Ginny said...

This video has totally taken everything else out of my mind!!!! It ROCKS!!!! Especially that little broom closet scene at the end. So what is the story on it, do you know? What was the occasion? Isn't that the place where we would ALL want to go when we are unable to stay at home anymore?

Sandy said...

Iron this and get me a beer....HAHAHAHAH.. i need that laugh.

Now back to packing!!

thanks for your funny blog. some day I'll have time to come here for a daily dose of laughter...

Sandy said...

LOVED that video - i'll repost it at my place...thanks.

I LOVED the worm joke. Love how you can find jokes I can repeat to my girls. Great Friday post - once again! Have a good weekend.

sarah said...

Hey Chatty...I'm sitting in a hotel computer area laughing from your jokes. that picture above you post. Hilarious. And Maxine is the to you of course.

That corgi :) said...

I'll come back and watch the video later tonight; on my way out in a few minutes (community group at church, small groups, life groups, every church that has them calls them something different). Anyway, I loved the Maxine cartoons; her humor is just too funny and so true!! Loved the life before computer too; so funny how we have incorporated those words in this technology age!

enjoy the weekend!


Mevely317 said...

Ya know, I soooo look forward to your Friday funnies ... was all I could do today, not to "cheat" and jump on-line from the office. (Budget time = boo, hiss.)

As always, thanks for lifting my spirits!

Thisisme. said...

Hi Chatty. Sorry I'm a bit late, but I guess better late than never!! These funnies were just hilarious. My favourite was the man on the plane, who was more than willing to make her feel like a real woman! LOL!!

Debbie said...

I saw the video on the news. That's spunk!

My favorite part this week was the "Make me feel like a woman" one.

Anonymous said...

MADE me laugh out loud!

I agree with Maxine...I sometimes feel forgetful, however I do have too much going on in my head. I feel better now.

Love, Carol

Karen said...

I had to giggle when I read that one about the cowboy! Just loved the video, too! That's how I'm going to be when I'm 90. Thanks for the laughs, Sandie. btw, you asked if I'm still blogging. Yes, finally got back at it today after a month off. Thanks for asking.
blessings, k

Sharon said...

What a hoot to return from vacation and be able to have a laugh at Chatty's place! Loved this post...

Still smiling about the cowboy on the airplane. Thought maybe he was going to tell her to sit down and be quiet - seems that happens to us women too much, too...
