I’m a lover of “teh funny” as a friend of mine likes to say. Every day, I read my funny pages and various feed subscriptions, including I Can Has Cheezburger? and Cookie’s Cook Shack: Gab & Grub (I think I originally subscribed to this one for recipes, but he posts a LOT of funny things! :)).
It’s no secret that I’m probably most fond of both of those sites, as I re-post things from both of them pretty often. :mrgreen:
For instance, here are a couple of cute things that Cookie’s posted over the past couple of days:
Why Is It That We Have to Speak English?
A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a Naval conference that included admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a group of half dozen or so officers that included personnel from most of the countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked: “Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”
Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied: “Maybe it’s because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and the Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.”
The group became suddenly quiet.
LOL!! I especially love this one:
I just loves Retirement …
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.
Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I went up to him and said, “Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break”? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.
I called him a “Nazi.” He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a “doughnut eating Gestapo.”
He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes.
The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn’t care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said “Hillary in ’08.”
I try to have a little fun each day now that I’m retired. It’s important to my health …
I’m thankful to have discovered ICHC not only because of the cute kitty images blasted to me on a daily basis, because for the most part they are family-friendly so I can share them with Jessie too.
Something I’ve noticed that they do is post “Caturday” themed images each Saturday. Yesterday’s was particularly adorable. :grin:
In fact, I’ve filed an application with thefanlistings.org and started building a ICHC fanlisting site. :mrgreen:
It’s not public yet, as the fanlisting hasn’t yet been approved. BUT I will post again when it’s opened. :D
