Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope this week has been good to you! It’s been a rough one for me. With pain levels on the rise, I need all the laughter I can get. I’ve always kept my sense of humor through tough times but it helps! I know I’m not the only one going through a rough patch. Even if you’re not experiencing a chronic illness like I am, I’m sure you’re still experiencing a lot of unrest and concern over current affairs these days. So let’s all just breathe and have a few laughs, shall we? Here are a few funnies I hope will help make your Friday a good one.  

 


In all seriousness, folks…please be cautious when dealing with fireworks! Things can go wrong without warning so please be careful!

I think I liked the ‘gramma got laid’ and ‘old man walking’ the most! Do you have a favorite?
 
Please be safe this 4th of July weekend! I plan on staying inside, under the a/c, and working on my crochet project! Don’t forget to laugh, friends!
   

10 Things We Can Learn From SpongeBob SquarePants (Part 1)

I heard some women the other day complaining about their kids watching SpongeBob SquarePants. If you’ve never watched it, you should. It’s quite amusing and if you watch real close you just might learn something.

The first time I ever saw SpongeBob I couldn’t understand why he was wearing a fishbowl on his head. My son explained that he’s a sponge, lives under the sea, and the fishbowl is so that he can still breathe while visiting his friend, Sandy Squirrel, on land. Ok, I thought. What will they think of next?

SpongeBob has been a favorite ever since then. Unless I’m trying to take a nap. No one can sleep through SpongeBob’s laugh, can they? Dad loves the show and he tells my granddaughter that I won’t let him watch SpongeBob unless she’s visiting! Totally not true! But I digress.

I got to thinking the other day, there are a lot of things to be learned from good ol’ SpongeBob and company! Let’s take a look!!

1. Be optimistic! Don’t be a sour puss like Squidward.

2. Just Be Yourself!

3. Be kind to others. A little kindness goes a long way.

4. It’s ok to have friends who are different than you.

5. Use your imagination!

6. It’s ok to fail. Keep trying!

7. Do what you love, love what you do.

8. Laugh. Find humor in everything. It makes life a little more interesting!

9. Let your weird shine. It’s ok to be different.

10. Be helpful to others.

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Well, Happy Freakin’ Friday, folks! I hope this week has been a good one for you. It’s been a boring one here in my neck of the woods. Dad and I have been stuck at home for 113 long-ass boring days. One day is the same as the next. I don’t even know what month it is. Kidding, just kidding. It’s almost the month of Jucember, right? Kidding again. Sheesh. I’m not that out of it.

I hope this week’s funnies will make you laugh, or at least smile. We all need something to smile about these days. Here’s your weekly dose of funnies!! Enjoy!



Do you have a favorite? I think mine has to be the cat with googly-eyes!! That one one really made me laugh. I hope you enjoyed this week’s funnies! Have a super weekend! Be safe and wear a mask to slow the virus.

70’s Musical Inspiration

If you grew up in the 70’s the musical and educational cartoons of Schoolhouse Rock probably still echo in your brain. We all learned different things on Saturday mornings just watching these little cartoon shorts. Do you know what I learned? (Aside from the obvious, I mean.)

I learned that anything – ANYTHING – can be turned into a song. To this day, I make up songs about all kinds of things. This “skill” of mine is in part, the result of watching Schoolhouse Rock. I say ‘in part’ because there was something else – I should say someone else – I learned this from. I will explain after the following videos from Schoolhouse Rock:

I think y’all might also remember Mac Davis if you grew up in the 70’s! He had several hit country music songs (Baby Don’t Get Hooked On Me, It’s Hard To Be Humble, and In The Ghetto, to name just a few) and he had a variety show once upon a time. I recall at the end of his tv show he would go into the audience and ask for phrases that he could make up a song about. He would then just make something up on the spot, and it was always hilarious! His sense of humor and his ability to make shit up like that was amazing to me as a child! It was the best part of the show. I couldn’t find much in the line of his improv on YouTube, but I think you might get a kick out of what I did find:

I spend much of my days of this crappy “2020 Isolation Game” making up songs. (Of course, I have always done this sort of thing, I just do it more now!) Some days are more ‘musical’ than others but I always crack myself up!

Thank you, Schoolhouse Rock and Mac Davis, for inspiring me, teaching me, molding me, and entertaining me. It is very much appreciated!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Happy Friday! I hope this week has been good to you. Dad and I are on Day 96 of staying home. We only go out to hit the liquor store or pharmacy drive-thru windows. Today, we are making a run to the liquor store. How exciting. (Insert sarcasm.) We would be willing to go to the grocery store or Walmart, if only people were wearing masks and using social distancing BUT it seems (according to several local friends) people are doing no such thing. Oh, sure. There are a few but not enough for me to feel that Dad is safe. Even as the number of cases rise in various states, people don’t take this seriously. It hasn’t hit our rural communities; last I heard we’ve had only 3 positive cases. BUT it’s coming. I feel it. We stay home until I know it’s safe for Dad to be out without getting seriously ill with COVID-19.

Are you staying home? Are you wearing masks and using social distancing measures to protect yourself and others? Are you working from home? I bet you’re sick of it all, just as I am. A good laugh now and again helps. Here’s this week’s funnies to break up the monotony. Enjoy!

What do you think? My favorite is “alcohol and horses” but the “guess what happened dog” is pretty dang close! I hope you got a few laughs, friends. Heaven knows we all need a good laugh these days.

I hope your weekend is good to you! Be safe, stay away from idiots, and look for humor in all places!
