Fun Friday with a little help from my friends.


The Pastor's New Teeth

A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes. The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes.

The following Sunday, he talks for two hours and 48 minutes.

The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't talk for more than eight minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes. But, the third Sunday, he put his wife's teeth in by mistake and he couldn't shut up.

Thank you Jerry!


 Thank you Kelly.


                My wife, Julie, had  been after me for several weeks to paint the seat on our  toilet. Finally, I got around to doing it while Julie was  out. After finishing, I left to take
                care of another  matter before she returned.
                She came in and undressed  to take a shower. Before getting in the shower, she sat on  the toilet. As she tried to stand up, she realized that  the not-quite-dry epoxy paint had glued her to the toilet  seat.
                About that time, I got home and realized her predicament.
                We both pushed and pulled without any  success whatsoever. Finally, in desperation, I undid the  toilet seat bolts.
                Julie wrapped a sheet around herself  and I drove her to the hospital emergency room.
                The ER  Doctor got her into a position where he could study how to  free her (Try to get a mental picture of this.).
                Julie  tried to lighten the embarrassment of it all by saying,  "Well, Doctor, I'll bet you've never seen anything like  this before."
                The Doctor replied, "Actually, I've seen  lots of them......
                I just never saw one mounted and  framed."
Hope you thought that was funny!  Thanks Monica.

IT'S SO HOT in . . . . . . .

.....the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.
.....the trees are whistling for the dogs.
.....the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance water comes from both taps. can make sun tea instantly. learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
.....the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly. discover that in July it only takes two fingers to steer your car
     (one on each hand). discover that you can get sunburned through your car window. actually burn your hand opening the car door. break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 5:30 A.M.
.....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out
     and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"? realize that asphalt has a liquid stage.
.....the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out
     and add butter.
.....the cows are giving evaporated milk. are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from
     laying boiled eggs.

IT'S SO DRY in Indiana that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

 Thank you to my cousin Jeannie in Indiana!


Thank you Sharon.

Now sorry guys - but it is good to be a woman and I'll tell you why:

1. No fashion faux pas we make could ever rival the Speedo. 
2. If we forget to shave, no one has to know. 
3. We will never regret piercing our ears. 
4. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems. 
5. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren't listening anyway.

Sorry guys , but it's true.  Thank you Fran.


Thank you Kelly.


 PS: Yesterday my husband went to the library and a woman came up to him and handed him his own wallet. He had dropped it out in the parking lot! Inside was a fold he had place a $100 bill - why I don't know - but it was still there and she put her business card there. So if there is anyone in the Marietta area that needs someone that needs health care - here is the email or 678-777-2989. I wish I had her name when my mother was dying. I would have trusted her!. 
Thanks Fabiola Benner!



....can't get beyond the Pastor and his teeth....that just cracked me up.

Miss Debbie said...

That's some funny stuff and a great story about the wallet! Yes, there are still some honest folks around!

Your joke about the three sisters reminds me of a saying my dad had. "Of course I believe in the 'hereafter'. Every day I walk into a room and say, 'Now what was I here after?'"

That corgi :) said...

LOL about the woman's and man's cold pictures (but isn't it the truth?) That is neat to see that there are still honest people around here, Sandie! Glad hubby got his wallet back intact!

have a good day!

Nonnie said...

The sick man and sick woman. Lol, so much truth there!

I love the wallet story because a similar thing has happened to my husband recently (and more than once) and it always lifts me up to know that yes, there are still people who take the time to do the right thing.

DH and I are still chuckling over the toilet-seat incident!
Thanks for sharing your Good Samaritan story ... it's always heartening to read a piece of GOOD news in this big old world.

I don't know which funny story I liked best, but the wallet story was definitely tops over all. Thanks for reminding us of good people doing good things.

Grandma Bonnie said...

You got me today! I am in tears laughing. I will share this laughter with everyone today. Hope you have a great weekend.

Sally said...

I'm sorta laughin' at the pastor and his teeth. Probably because I'm still nursing dental surgery I had on Wed. Always happy to read your Friday funnies. :)

Beth said...

I am LOL! Lots of funnies today!

Anonymous said...

I'm really slow today, so I had to read that toilet joke about three times before I got it. Funny!

Paula said...

Lots of good 'ens here today but I really can relate to the colds.

Thanks for the laughs and TGIF!:@)

Angela said...

I'm so glad that that woman found your husband's wallet and found him and gave it back to him. Funny how she put her business card inside it. Hopefully she will get some more business.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

jack69 said...

Fantastic Friday input. I enjoy coming for a good laugh, and even some good common sense.
BUTT I kept going back to the framed one and laughing!!

I do Thank God for creating the woman, This would have been one boring place without you guys. Not to mention all the FUN TIMES!!!

Love from Pennsylvania!!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Loved the 'mounted and framed' rear!! Funny Friday for sure! Hugs, Linda

PS I love honest people!

Susan said...

Oh Sandie, that was great. The mounted and framed "art work" cracked me up.

And the honestly of that home health aide. How admirable.

The whole post was great. Thanks! Susan

mare ball said...

Where do you get this stuff?!?!? Oh my gosh, I'm cracking up! You are such spreader of giggles!

Rob-bear said...

Neither this pastor nor his wife have any of the related problems you discussed! When I talk, I take about 15-17 minutes.

Speaking of which, there is a prayer for preachers. "Lord, fill my mouth will real good stuff, and close it when I've said enough."

And isn't it great there are honest people around. I'm sure there are lots and lots of them. We never her about them, that's all.

Michaele said...

Great post Chatty! I think I laughed at the toilet seat on the most. I hope you don't mind if I shared the It's As Hot As one on facebook? Have a great weekend!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I just read some of these to my family, Sandie. We all had a good laugh! Thanks!! Have a great weekend!

Susannah said...

ruthie said...

I love reading and laughing at your blog! Thanks for the lift! Have a happy weekend!

ruthie said...

Thanks for your kind words! You are always so thoughtful. You are up late!

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
Many funnies you have told this day, my friend. I like the one with the pastor and his teeth, but the best one, I think, it's the one with the 3 sisters, 92, 94 and 96 year-old forgetful sisters...
You've got a great sense of humour. A good positive mood lady, you are sweetheart.
Thanks for sharing with us!!
Have a blessed weekend, Sandie!!
Warm Hugs,
Poet Starry.

Debbie said...

What an honest and good person she is! Sometimes I forget that there are still a lot of the good ones out there.

And the stories, as usual, brightened my morning.

SweetMarie said...

Love them all, but the three sisters was my favorite!
It's so nice to hear a happy story! What a truly good person to return your hubby's wallet!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend Sandie!

Grammy Goodwill said...

I loved all your jokes, esp the ones about how hot it is. Funny about the Catholics praying for the wine to turn back into water. How nice of that woman to return your hubby's wallet and how savvy of her to add her business card! Smart and honest - now that's a winning combination.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you for another very honorable mention!

Mary said...

hahahhaha. all time great...I don't know how I missed this one. Love it.
