Me,  too...!!!

  Now...I understand my problem!
The question is, What does a 320-pound woman   look like?

 Not exactly what you were expecting, is it?
 The tallest/best-proportioned woman in the world lives in Holland .
She is 7'4" and weighs 320.
What a relief! Now we ALL know we aren't overweight; we're just too short!

Caller : Hi, our printer is not working.
Customer Service: What is wrong with it?

: Mouse is jammed.

Customer Service
: Mouse?
Printers don't have a mouse !
Caller: Oh really?... I will send a picture.
Scroll down !!!!

 Love, Chatty

Great selection of funnies today.... and by the way.... I failed the test miserably.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I have never seen that tallest woman before - interesting!

Jeanie said...

I knew the answers to the questions weren't obvious, but I didn't know the right one for very many.
Happy Friday Sandie.

Granny Annie said...

The only one I got right was King George VI. As soon as I got there I realized I was probably wrong on the others.

Where in the world do you get all these great funnies? They are the best.

Debbie said...

I failed miserably! Now I have to check to make sure if I can walk and chew gum at the same time. LOL!

Godsgalnj said...

Hahaha!! I bombed that test! lol

Cheri said...

I love the first photo and will try to remember that if I get stopped by a cop. LOL
Good ones today. This is always a good way to end the week.

Shug said...

Not sure which is my favorite today...for sure, I failed the test!

Paula said...

Lots of funny cartoons here today. I thought that test was too easy. lol

Wanda's Wings said...

Nothing like a test to humble you! I guess I just way too short. lol

Thisisme. said...

Hi Sandie! Really good funnies for us again today. You always bring a smile to my face, which is great! Yes, I failed those questions as well. I was whizzing through them, thinking, crumbs, this is SO easy! Ha! That will teach me. I got every one of them wrong!

Renae said...

i love all of those!!!! thank you!!!
When ever I read Friday's Funnies I always remember I discovered you on a Friday and it brings back memories of me laughing OUT LOUD!!! (too cheesy?)

I loved your comments to me (24/7 for your grandson's sleep over) and that you got to own your Grandmothers Jewelry Box. awesome.

Say What? said...

Your blog is the BEST! It's so much fun to visit. LOVE all the pics.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Alice Arthigton said...

OMG and i thought i was tall at 5'11"

Rob-bear said...

OK; so, we all know that Bear is not the brightest critter in the bush. However, I got six points on the World's Easiest Quiz: Hundred Years War (actually, I was off by a year, but who's counting), Russian Revolution, Purple Finch, KIng "Birtie" and Black Box. I also gave myself an extra point for knowing the Canary Islands are in the ATLANTIC, not Pacific, Ocean. (See, even when you're posting a quiz, you get by the help of your friends, Sandie.)

The rest of your stories were delights, too! And you proved that a fence is what you take when people insult you.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

barbara l. hale said...

Lots of good laughs today! Thanks!

Nonnie said...

Oh my goodness! Thank you. I needed that today. Thanks for all the smiles and laughs.

DearHelenHartman said...

One. I got ONE right on the quiz. What a fun post - I learned, I laughed, I looked a second time!!

Butterbean Row said...

I had to call my husband in the room to see a 320 lb. woman. Boy was he surprised! He thought I was tall at 5'10". Ha! Wonder where she can get clothes that fit.
Thanks for the smiles.


Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Very nice, thanks for the smiles! Yep, I flunked:@)

Dee said...

Flunked...I hate that.:( In context to thought for the day...I do feel you show people every day how to smile. :)

Grammy Goodwill said...

I hate failing a test!

Retired English Teacher said...

Oh my but you found some good ones today! I knew I couldn't be right when I got all those questions right with the 'duh' answer. That is a good thing because my bubble wasn't too broken when I discovered I got them all wrong. : )

Susan said...

H-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s! Got a hoot out of every one! Susan

What is it that they feed kids in the Netherlands?? I loved this post, laughed all the way through, and I needed a good laugh before putting my computer to bed for the night. Thanks, Sandie! :-)

Ann said...

good ones today. That sign about shopping is sooooo true :)

Sweet Tea said...

My favorite was the very first one, the woman speeding to where she is going before she forgets her destination. I wonder if a policeman would take that as an excuse. (it might depend upon his age). :-)

Angela said...

I think you out did yourself this week on your funny Fridays! They all were hilarious! Wonder if I can grow taller! lol

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

SweetMarie said...

That senior driving fast is hilarious! I think the rooster pics are so funny! Hubby and I were cracking up!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

I did not get one of those answers right. :) Ha!

Fiona said...

Hi Sandie

I am sorry that I have not been around for the last week or so. but I have my Mum staying with me at the moment and feel guilty if I don't give her my time and so haven't been on the computer much.

Hope all is well with you.

I will have so much catching up to do
when Mum goes home that it will take me until Christmas
to get through all the posts I have missed!

Have a lovely weekend.

x Fiona
