Sometimes You’ve Just Got to Laugh!


This is one of those days… National Let’s Laugh Day. I like it. Laughter is infectious… in all the right ways! Everyone needs a mood uplift now and then. So, go ahead and share a giggle or a guffaw. Here are a few silly ones to get you started.





What do you call a lazy kangaroo?




            A pouch potato


I used to run a dating service for chickens, but I was struggling to make hens meet.



What do you call it when a snowman throws a tantrum?





A meltdown


What do you call a fake noodle?

An impasta


A termite walks into the neighborhood bar and says, “So, is the bar tender here?”


And now some delightful Points to Ponder.

(I wonder who has time to sit around and think of these things.)

The ability to speak several languages is an asset, but the ability to keep your mouth shut in any language is priceless.


Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision.

Just once, I want the prompt for username and password to say, “Close enough.”


Becoming an adult is the dumbest thing I’ve ever done.


If you see me talking to myself, just move along. I’m self-employed. We’re having a meeting.


“Your call is very important to us. Please enjoy this 40-minute flute solo”.


Does anyone else have a plastic bag full of plastic bags, or is it just me?


I hate it when I can’t figure out how to operate the iPad and my tech support guy is asleep. Okay… Okay… He’s 5 and it’s past his bedtime.


Today’s 3-year-olds can switch on laptops and open their favorite apps. When I was 3, I ate mud.


Tip for a successful marriage: Don’t ask your wife when dinner will be ready while she’s mowing the lawn.


So, you drive across town to a gym to walk on a treadmill?


I didn’t make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.


I decided to stop calling the bathroom “John” and renamed it “the Jim.” I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.


Old age is coming at a really bad time.


If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would’ve put them on my knees.


Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet.


Why do I have to press one for English when you’re just going to transfer me to someone I can’t understand anyway?


You don’t need anger management. You need people to stop pissing you off.


Your people skills are just fine. It’s your tolerance for idiots that needs work.


“On time” is, when you get there.


Even duct tape can’t fix stupid – but it sure does muffle the sound.


It would be wonderful if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes, then come out wrinkle-free…and three sizes smaller.
