Dad Joke Survivors

Nickelodeon Australia put together a public service announcement (PSA) in honor of father’s day.  The premise is that dads all over the world are telling poor, barely humorous jokes to their children.  It is having an effect.  It is no laughing matter.  Definitely worth watching.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Elected Judges

I stumbled on John Oliver’s show “Last Week Tonight” a few weeks ago.  It is very humorous commentary.  Here is the latest one about issues with elected judges.  It does have a lot of bad language, so not recommended for kids.  But it will keep the adults entertained.

Some things to look forward to:

Great One Liners for Today

I’ve been reading through: Great One Liners

Here are some really good ones from today:


To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer


Never do card tricks for your poker buddies.


Never mess up an apology with an excuse.


Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:  If it moves, tax it.  If it keeps moving, regulate it.  And if it stops, subsidize it.  —Ronald Reagan


Inside every senior citizen is a younger person wondering, “What the hell happened?”


A will is a dead giveaway.


A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.


When I die, I want to die like my grandfather–peacefully, in my sleep.  Not screaming, like all the passengers in his car.


I think I know how Chicago got started: bunch of New Yorkers said, “Gee I’m enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn’t cold enough.  Let’s go West.”  — Richard Jeni


Never be afraid to try something new.  Just remember:  amateurs built the Ark; professionals built the Titanic.


When someone says “penny for your thoughts” and you put your two-cents in, where does the extra penny go?


Why is it that if someone tells  you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you believe them, but if they tell you a wall’s paint is wet, you will touch it to be sure?


A verbal contract isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. —Samuel Goldwyn


Television is a medium because it is neither rare nor well done.  — Ernie Kovaks


My husband and I divorced over religious differences.  He thought he was God and I didn’t.


The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.


The quickest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.


Nobody is listening until you make a mistake.


For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.


A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have. — Thomas Jefferson



Common sayings turned funny

I got this email from a friend… Thought I would share.

5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
6. War does not determine who is right – only who is left.
7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
8. Evening news is where they begin with ‘Good Evening,’ and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.
9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
10. A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

12. Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says, ‘In case of emergency, notify:’ I put ‘DOCTOR.’

[BJEmail] Two Chimpanzees and a Blonde

 A blonde lady motorist was about two hours from San Diego when she was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down. The man walked up to

  the car and asked, “Are you going to San Diego?”

  “Sure,” answered the blonde, “do you need a lift?”

  “Not for me I’ll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I’ve got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken

  to the San Diego Zoo. They’re a bit stressed already so I don’t want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me?”

  “I’ll give you $100 for your trouble.”

  “I’d be happy to,” said the blonde. So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde’s car and carefully strapped into their seat belts. Off they went.

  Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of San Diego when suddenly he was horrified!! There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to

  the amusement of a big crowd.

  With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde.

  “What the heck are you doing here?” he demanded, “I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.”

  “Yes, I know you did,” said the blonde, “but we had money left over—so now we’re going to Sea World……”

Just to make you smile………From today’s Sydney Morning Herald
EASTER has been celebrated around the world in the traditional manner.

At the White House, President Shrub took the first ceremonial bite from a 181-kilogram hot cross bun baked by the Bible-Believing Halliburton Executives of America and called for world peace.

“This cookie is why, um, we got Eden and Eve in The Garden of, er, Adam and all that stuff,” the President said. “The United States will not leave Iraq till, um, them folks there get with the Bible good news.”

In Rome, pilgrims from around the world flocked into St Peter’s Square to hear the midnight Easter message from Pope Benzedrine. In a solemn ritual as old as Christianity itself, television cameramen battled to obtain a close-up shot of a pious but regrettably ugly nun clutching a candle.

Speaking in his native German and then a language Vatican officials believed might have been Swahili, the Pontiff called on the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby to come forward and confess.

“Zeigen Sie uns das Geld,” he told the crowd. “Show us the money.”

[BJEmail] Don’t Mess With Old Ladies – Wednesday’s Humor Contribution]

An older lady gets pulled over for speeding…

Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?

Officer: Ma’am, you were speeding.

Older Woman: Oh, I see.

Officer: Can I see your license please? 

Older Woman: I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.

Officer: Don’ t have one?

Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving.

Officer: I see…Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.

Older Woman: I can’t do that.

Officer: Why not?

Older Woman: I stole this car.

Officer: Stole it?

Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.

Officer: You what?

Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma’am, would you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Older woman: Is there a problem sir?

Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Older Woman: Murdered the owner?

Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma’am?

Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.

The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.

Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.
