Fun Friday with a little help from my friends



Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one?
 Thank you Susan at Writing From the Heart.

this will bring a really big smile to your face!

...or wonder if some people have too  much time on their hands.

An elderly lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat tight so that it would not blow away in the wind. A gentleman approached her and said, "Pardon me, madam.. I do not intend to be forward but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?"

"Yes, I know," said the lady. "I need both my hands to hold onto this hat." "But madam, you must know that you are not wearing any panties and your privates are exposed!" said the gentleman in earnest.

The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, "Sir, anything you see down there I've had for 75 years. I just got this hat yesterday!"

Students in an advanced Biology class were taking their mid-term exam. The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk.’ The question was worth 70 points or none at all.

One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages.
However, he wrote:

1) It is perfect formula for the child.
2) It provides immunity against several diseases.
3) It is always the right temperature.
4) It is inexpensive.
5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa.
6) It is always available as needed.

And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he wrote:

7) It comes in two attractive containers and it's high enough off the ground where the cat can't get it.

He got an A.

Love the biology class one...smart kid. LOL

Grammy Goodwill said...

Thanks for the smiles this morning.

Sandra said...

i laughed out loud at the onety-one and now i want to know why to. i love the classes, some of them are just hysterical and my favorite is the bitch about it for 3 hours.. i can DO that and HAVE so i don't need that class, I am signing hubby up for the thermostat class since we fight about what it says all the time.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I've always wondered why 11 isn't pronounced onety-one. ;-)

I got a laugh out of the classes for women!

Melanie said...

Ha ha, love the Mother's Milk one! Too funny! :-)

Beth said...

Thank you for the Friday smiles!!

andy said...

Thanks for my smiles today ! Have a great day

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Love my Friday chuckles!! LOL! I have to say the breast milk quiz was my favorite!! LOL! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hey, having trouble reading the script again, but I enjoyed the ones I could read. You are too funny. And that little dog lying on his back looks just like my former little Min Pins who have long ago crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Hope you are having a good day. It is raining and raining here. All night long it poured, and it has slacked for a minute. We're slated to have this till Sunday, I think.

If you get two posts from me on your Google Reader, that's because I did two posts. Am having trouble with Google and had to erase the first one and post it again so that my comments would appear. I really goofed when I turned my comments off the other day. Now they are acting really flukey and turning themselves off by themselves BEFORE I post.




Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

ha. ha!! giggles. i love Fridays for this reason ... your Friday posts are always so great!! ( :

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Those are some interesting classes :)

I need Class #10 and hubby needs #11. Thanks for the Friday funnies. :)

Inger said...

Thank you for my Friday laugh.Love the quote and the lady with the dress blowing in the wind.

Nonnie said...

Oh man. The teaching class! To my shame, I have even taught our granddaughter to go tell grandpa he left the seat up and please don't do that anymore. ;-) Also laughed about the lady who didn't whine or nag.

I am sending the story of the benefits of breastfeeding to a young friend who regularly expresses her beliefs over this, even on FB.

Happy Friday to you and yours.

Terri said...

Props girl- Thanks for the giggles.

Sandee said...

I love them all. I signed up for the classes too.

Loved the hat one.

Have a terrific day honey. :)

TexWisGirl said...

the radio flyer is too cool.

Jille said...

Needed a laugh today and then I read your post! Thank you!

Maggie Ann said...

Sandie, that was rich...you've got me laughing. Laughter is a beautiful thing. And so refreshing.....right in the middle of the morning when I'm feeling a tad stressed about all I should be doing....thanks, thanks! Hope your day is blessed..

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Yes, I agree. My favorite time of the day is nap time.

Bev said...

Its always 'Fun' visiting you!!


FUNNY story about the hat. I'm a hat lady myself, so I can imagine myself in a similar situation. Got to save the hat at all costs.

Shelly said...

A merry heart does good like a medicine, and you've given me a wonderful dose!

mail4rosey said...

LOL at the funnies, and for the radio flyer I was thinking, 'Is that even legal???' and then it went on to explain that it was. Awesome. ;) :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love the 'lift' today and oh the breast milk thing cracked me up!!


Ginny said...

OH my GOSH!!!!! This classes for women is the funniest thing I have ever read on a blog in My WHOLE LIFE!!!!!!! I am still laughing and will continue to laugh all day. So today when I take a hot meal to my sick friend who just had surgery, she will think I have gone totally round the bend and am utterly unsympathetic.

jack69 said...

Coming to Chatty for a visit is like a breath of fresh air. Always a great read. I get a daily chuckle or two and learn too. I love the variety.

A NEW HAT, is VERY important, and I know it now.

Love all the instructions.
((HUGS)) jack & Sherry!!!

Granny Annie said...

Sadly my spouse would want to enroll me in each of those classes.

Sharon said...

Love #7 on the biology exam.

And Class #6 - How to Ask Questions During Commercials and Be Quiet During the Program? Flunked that one, definitely!


Betty Manousos said...

barbara l. hale said...

I admire the woman with the hat and love that red wagon "car." How clever is that?!

Anonymous said...

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Betsy Adams said...

Cute ones, Sandie. I loved the mother's milk one.. I also love reading about those classes for women... Good ones!!!!

Have a great weekend.

Jim said...

Nice post today, Sandie. I've been fooling around today but decided I should try the new meme. It is a simple on but there are quite a few doing it.

First and last:
-- First, Why wouldn't the number 11 be pronounced onehundredty-one?
-- Last, Mrs. Jim does ALL of those things wrong. She needs your class. Are you going? (Sometimes she shops alone but is a lot slower then. Last night we were at our Woodlands Macy's. We spent three hours there and only bought the wedding present we came for.)

Renae at simple sequins said...

The Radio Flyer was dang cute, but how did they get in and out of it? It never showed that part?

I loved the list of classes and their subtle descriptions and intent, so funnnny!

Have a fab weekend, friend!

Ms. A said...

LOVE that Radio Flyer... and the Kalu quote. Oh, and the test answers!

Cathy said...

I agree, naptime does rock! Thanks for another laugh.

cube said...

Such a smorgasbord of fun. Happy Friday!

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

Happy Friday!

Merlesworld said...

I did get a laugh on the seventh benefit of breast feeding.

Dolores said...

You always lift my spirits and make me smile...... thank you!!!

My Journey With Candida said...

Happy Friday to you Sandie!! I am sitting in a motel room right now catching up on blogs while my Hubs watches TV. Have a Great weekend.

Jill said...

Oh. My. Gosh! So funny today!

Sue said...

Loved the classes for women....very funny...and the biology kid was a good one....It all was good...I needed a laugh tonight...you know I did :)

Susan said...

Ha ha ha hahaha Got my Friday chuckles in, even though I'm late in reading it.

Hilarious. Loved all of them. You, girl, find the coolest thigh-slappers around.

You must be a hoot to live with. Susan

Alica said...

These were great...but that last one takes the cake! Where in the world do you find all these?!

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

Well, we have had some "high winds" around here lately, but nothing occurred like the lady on the ship. :)

Jazzi said...

LOVE the wagon, it is so cool!! Reminds me of my wagon!!

Also loved the wind and hat lady, so funny!!
Thanks for the laughs and smiles!!


Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

The mother's milk thing is so cute!

Crystal Mary said...

There's nothing like a good laugh. I liked the red wagon. So great!! And what about that lady holding onto her hat while her privates were exposed... LOL xx

Jemma said...

Just finished reading this post out loud to my husband while we have our Saturday cup of coffee-you had us both giggling and smiling! Thank you for this morning pick-me-up!
Sweet Hugs!


These are priceless. Love that the student got an "A" on the mother's milk. The 7th would've been Bud's FIRST in the list. rofl

And the first one you shared, reminded me of the number 1 and number 2 ---now, don't go on a tangent, it's NOT what you think!!

"Why is there a "Wha" in one and not in TWO when there IS a 'w' in two and not in one"?

Donna said...

Hahahaa...thanks Girl!!

Rose said...

Love the hat story! LOL

SweetMarie said...

Love the classes! Thanks for the laughs! Hubby and I just read all this together.:)

The Boston Lady said...

Sign me up for all the classes! Love that Radio Flyer - how clever. Ann

Retired English Teacher said...

This was one great post. That little red wagon was pretty darn cute. Your jokes always give me a laugh. Have a great weekend.

Nikki (Sarah) said...

thanks Chatty for the smiles. Love that pup.....ahh the life of spoiled dog. Wishing you a great rest of the week. Your bud Oprah.

acorn hollow said...

I always smile when I am here.

LL Cool Joe said...

Oops I just read your side bar saying you are award free, and I just gave you one! Just ignore it and have a great day!

Caramella said...

I just love naps!:)

Babs said...

Fun post, Sandie! Thanks for the smiles. Have a great Sunday, Babs

Carol Z said...

As always, you gave me a number of smiles! Have a great week.

Petro Neagu said...

Awesome post, Sandie! It would be perfect for my Smiles hop :)
I love the video and yes, I do believe some people have too much free time. The puppy is my favorite though :)

Elizabeth said...

There isn't a week that comes around that I don't read Fun Friday and get at least one good laugh.

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
Yes! I agree with Crystal regarding there is nothing better than a good laugh, for it's so healthy. I really enjoy reading good jokes you tell to your readers. The red wagon or red flier is so funny, but my preference goes to the lady on the boat with a hat being blown away by the wind along with her private parts...Ha ha ha!!...
Thank you, Sandie for replying to my letter! You made my day. I am glad you like my new poetry artwork. Telling you the truth, I do not update my blog so much lately, due to personal issues, but I still visit my dear friends' Blogs in Blogland.
Have a great weekend and an awesome week, my friend!
Warm Hugs & All the Best,

Catherine said...

Hope you had a terrific weekend and an even better week! :)
