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

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'd like to have for her birthday.

'I'd like to be eight again', she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M & M's.
What a fabulous adventure!

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.

He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, 'Well Dear, what was it like being eight again?

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed.

'I meant my dress size, you idoit!!!!'

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.

Thank you Lois.

This is a  quiz for people who know everything!

I found out in a hurry  that I didn't. These are not trick questions.

They are  straight questions with straight  answers..

1. Name  the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants  know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What  famous North American landmark is constantly moving  backward?

3 Of all vegetables, only two can live to  produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables  must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial  vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the  outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy,  with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and  the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear  get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard  English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words.  Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English  grammar. Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only  vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed,  cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6  or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the  letter 'S.'
Answers are at the bottom.

Thank you Lois.

"Have you ever seen a twenty dollar bill all crumpled up?" asked the wife.
"No," said her husband.
She gave him a sexy little smile, slowly reached into her cleavage and pulled out a crumpled twenty dollar bill.
"Have you ever seen a fifty all crumpled up?" she asked.
"Uh, no," he said.
She gave him another sexy little smile,seductively reached into her panties and pulled out a crumpled fifty dollar bill.
"Now," she said, "Have you ever seen 40,000 dollars all crumpled up?"
"No," he said, now really intrigued.
"Well go look in the garage..."
Thank you Sharon 
Thank you Diane C.

Paper is not dead - Linda and friends.  This is a H O O T !

Well y'all got the laughs now here's the lift -

Thank you David

Have a very blessed and wonderful Easter - God Bless and keep you - see you Monday.

Here are your answers.  How did you do?

1. The  one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know  the score or the leader until the contest  ends: Boxing.

2.  North American landmark constantly moving  backward: Niagara  Falls  .. The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year  because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every  minute.

3. Only  two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several  growing seasons: Asparagus  and rhubarb.

4.  The fruit with its seeds on the outside: Strawberry.

5.  How did the pear get inside the brandy  bottle? It grew  inside the bottle. The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are  small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place  for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are  snipped off at the stems.

6. Three  English words beginning with dw: Dwarf,  dwell and dwindle...

7.  Fourteen punctuation marks in English  grammar: Period,  comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark,  exclamation point, quotation mark, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and  ellipses.

Good Morning and Happy Friday, my friend! These were a hoot. Love every one of them!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

A very blessed Good Friday to you. I never know everything and sure do learn something new every day. I'm sending the picture of the Jedi to one of my sons who is a starwars lover. Happy Easter weekend!

jack69 said...

Jeanie said...

The questions were a lot for my mind this early in the morning but I got a couple of them.
Have a wonderful Easter.

Catherine said...

My Journey With Candida said...

LoL... can't show my husband how to walk around the block. He hates walking unless he is hunting.. then it is all good for him.

Have a GREAT weekend.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

ha. ha!!! ( :

i can't figure out which one i like best. you always have me laughing.

Happy Easter!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

LOVED the trivia tidbits. You should do another one of those in the future. I can't believe that Niagra Falls moves back two and a half feet each year - that's very rapid as far as erosion is concerned.

Paula said...

Good ones, thanks.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

One of my daughters-in-law sent me that "Paper Is Not Dear" video and I posted it toooooo! Love it. On all sorts of levels. -grin-

Have a Happy Easter!


Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Ooops that should have read "Paper Is Not Dead" video, of course. ;-)

EM Illustrator said...

Love the crumpled money joke!

I just took that quiz last week so I would have aced it today. Wait, I shouldn't have told you that...I should have just said that I got them all correct today!

I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter.

Sandee said...

Well that was fun. All of it. I want to be a size 8 too. Not be 8! That was so cute.

Have a terrific day honey. Happy Easter to you and yours too. Big hugs from sunny California. ☺

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Another fun post! Out of all the questions I'm sad to admit I only guessed right on the strawberry. Hope you have a blessed Easter!

Ginny said...

I loved reading the answers!! Of course I did not know any of them. I also really like the pole dancing cartoon, TOO funny!


Loved them all. BUt my favorite was walking around the block. So funny.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

The size eight story was great!

Ms. A said...

Dee said...

Susannah said...

Miss Chatty...you did it again. I love them all. But the crumpled money might work in this house! Every Friday...I giggle, I laugh and sometimes so hard, I scare the cat! The one about the "paper" is my absolute favorite!!!

I pray you and your whole family have a relaxing and peaceful Easter. And let's not forget what Easter is all about.

Love ya,

Betsy Adams said...

I got all of the things you put on your feet except stilts.. Oh Well. Guess I ain't so smart afterall.. ha

I did know that about Niagara.

Love the Size 8 story... Too Cute...

Love the walking around the block one too...

And the GARAGE story is great too... Our garage is a MESS.


Carol said...


Loved the ‘When I was 8 story’! How funny and how true!

Agree also about the CA…Chocoholics Anonymous…I adore Chocolate!


#4 = Strawberries

That is the only one I dare to guess and looks like I got it right!

Have a BLESSED Easter!!!

Love to you!

SweetMarie said...

I love the questions that really get me thinking. I only knew the lettuce, strawberry, part of the feet list. Hubby knew about Niagara Falls and the pear in the bottle. I found the pear to be so cool!
Not giving up chocolate here! :)
Happy Easter to you and yours Sandie!

Sandra said...

I want the block and the treadmill with cake... Happy Easter, and have a wonderful week end with your family

Gina Gao said...

This was a really fun post!


andy said...

Love fun Fridays !!!!!

Susan said...

Ha! That was a good one, Sandie. Got a chuckle out of several.

Definitely realized how little I know when I took the quiz. (Duh.)

Hope you have a good day. Susan

thisisme said...

Those were all so funny! Really made me smile today. Sending Easter blessings to you and all the family.

Anonymous said...

good ones!! Happy Good Friday!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Happy Easter to you and have to say I am not as smart as I would like to be, as I only got a few answers right.

barbara l. hale said...

fun post! I actually got quite a few of the quiz questions right. Boy, I must be sharp today!

Jim said...

Cute jokes today, Sandy. I like the first the best even if I had heard it. The crumpled car was new to me, I'd never heard it before.

I wish we could grow rhubarb here in our part of Texas. My sister brings some or we rustle some when we got up to Iowa to visit her. They do sell it in the grocery stores but it just isn't the same as when you pick it yourself.

Rhubarb pie is my favorite.

Jim said...

Happy Easter, Sandie (sorry I spelled it wrong two minutes ago).
To you and your family.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Fun post! I'd love to be a size 8 again but I would also enjoy that day she had with her husband. I'm thinking of picking a small local amazement park for Mother's Day this year! I can't imagine them having the bottle over the pear while growing. That's different. Hope your having a very GOOD FRIDAY....

nancygrayce said...

I love these! Especially the first one about the husband and his wife's BD!

I only got one answer right......strawberry. Oh, I did get some of the punctuation marks.

Theresa said...

Love that story... 8 again:) I didn't know the answers, so thanks for the answers! Great to know for trivia! have a blessed Easter dear friend, HUGS!

barbara woods said...

you always make me smile

Ann said...

You have some good ones here. At least with those questions I was able to get some of the answers right

Donna said...

Thanks for all the Fun and Happy Easter friend!!

Connie Arnold said...

Thanks for the great post! Got some of the answers but not all. Loved the birthday story! Happy Easter!

Jackie said...

I want to be 8 again, too.
Loved that one!!
And...the crumpled money one.
Your blog made me smile today, Sandi. But then, it always makes me smile. That's a wonderful reason to visit a friend, isn't it? To share a smile. Thank you....

Kim said...

Lol. Those were all great. Happy Easter

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Lots of funnies today! Love the size 8 not age 8...cute! Enjoy our Easter weekend!
hugs, Linda

Jemma said...

You know-my favorite-pole dancing!!

Still smiling!

Happy, Happy Easter!!
Sweet Blessings, My Friend!

Simone said...

You had my mind going with the questions. I flunked them all! :)

LL Cool Joe said...

Maybe if she said "I'd like to be an eight again" he would have understood his wife better. I put that down to her bad English, rather than his lack of perception! :D ;p ;)

Have a great Easter!!

BelovedBomber said...

Happy Easter! So thankful for what the Lord has done! Shana

Changes in the wind said...

I want that exercise block:) It's just my style.

Dawn Paoletta said...

Cracking me up--- so many things- catching up on your crazy blog! Love and hugs for Easter.

Pondside said...

In the quiz, the only ones I got were five and six!

Lady Jane said...

Lots of laughs as usual chatty.... I am still laughing. Have a great Easter Weekend.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Boy, that quiz stumped me good!

Dropping by to leave you a love note and to say that I hope you have a very, VERY Happy Easter!

A chuckle on Easter Sunday! Thanks, my silly friend!

Wishing you a blessed Easter Sunday! May your day be full of Resurrection JOY!

"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said." (Matthew 28:6)

He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

Celebrating with you the promise of eternal life - thanks the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!


The Brown Recluse said...

I quit taking quizzes (and playing Trivial Pursuit) because I don't like knowing how ignorant I am!

I don't kmow about everyone else, buy my Ole Boy says "huh?" to just about everything I say. Sometimes I won't repeat what I've said, and he'll answer me. GRRRrrr lol

jean pell said...

Happy Easter Sandie!

Wendy said...

The woman on the treadmill chasing the cake... LOL! I hope you had a happy Easter, Sandie!!! :)

Nancy Claeys said...

Hee hee. Love the pole dance cartoon. :)

Debbie said...

I haven't taken the quiz yet so I had to scroll quickly past the answers. Can't wait to do that. I love quizzes.

Loved the fun Friday contributions as usual, and the stripper pole picture at the end just made me laugh right out loud.

Munir said...

I hope that you had a Happy Easter.
Yes we can love dogs and cats.
