Friday Frivolity – There Are Some Good Ones Here

When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.

To me, “drink responsibly” means don’t spill it

When I say, “The other day,” I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.

Interviewer: “So, tell me about yourself.” Me: “I’d rather not. I kinda want this job.”

Cop: “Please step out of the car.” Me: “I’m too drunk. You get in.”

I remember being able to get up without making sound effects.

I had my patience tested. I’m negative.

Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid the doesn’t fit any of your containers.

If you’re sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say, “Did you bring the money?”

When you ask me what I am doing today, and I say “nothing,” it does not mean I am free. It means I am doing nothing.

Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00 is new midnight.

I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.

I run like the winded.

I hate when a couple argues in public, and I missed the beginning and don’t know whose side I’m on.

When someone asks what I did over the weekend, I squint and ask, “Why, what did you hear?”

I don’t remember much from last night, but the fact that I needed sunglasses to open the fridge this morning tells me it was awesome.

When you do squats, are your knees supposed to sound like a goat chewing on aluminum can stuffed with celery?

I don’t mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.

When I ask for directions, please don’t use words like “east.”

It’s the start of a brand-new day, and I’m off like a herd of turtles.

Don’t bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Spend 30 seconds in my head. That’ll freak you right out.

That moment when you walk into a spider web suddenly turns you into a karate master.

Sometimes, someone unexpected comes into your life outta nowhere, makes your heart race, and changes you forever. We call those people cops.

The older I get, the earlier it gets late.

My luck; a bald guy who just won a comb.

Day Brightener – Two Subtle Ways To Question Someone’s Parentage

two golfers 2A guy was getting ready to tee off on the first hole when a second golfer
 approached and asked if he could join him. The first said that he usually
 played alone, but agreed to the twosome.

They were even after the first few holes. The second guy said, “We’re
 about evenly matched, how about playing for five bucks a hole?”
 The first guy said that he wasn’t much for betting, but agreed to the terms. The second guy won the remaining sixteen holes with ease.

As they were walking off number eighteen, the second guy was busy counting
 his $80.00. He confessed that he was the pro at a neighboring course and
 liked to pick on suckers.

The first fellow revealed that he was the Parish Priest. The pro was flustered and apologetic, offering to return the money. The Priest said, “You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with
 you. You keep your winnings.”
The pro said, “Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?”
 The Priest said, “Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a
 donation, and if you want to bring your mother and father along, 
I’ll marry them.”

waitressA single man had just finished a nice meal at a first class restaurant. The waitress brought him his check. The diner left the amount of the check plus a 3 penny tip. The waitress looked at the miserly tip and commented “I can tell you three things about you from the tip.” The man asked what that might be?” The waitress responded; “One, your are a bachelor.” “Right” replied the man. “Second the waitress said you are quite well to do”. “Right again” the man replied. “And third your father was a bachelor also”.

Day Brightener (Maybe Downer?) – Can You Spend 100% of Your Time Seeking A New Full Time Job While Keeping and Getting Paid By Your Current Full Time Job?

Can You Spend 100% of Your Time Seeking A New Full Time Job While Keeping and Getting Paid By Your Current Full-Time Job?  Sounds Ridiculous, doesn’t it?  But that is just what politicians do all of the time. And this is not one party or the other, they all do it. Think about the current presidential campaign where there are six sitting senators in the race who are spending virtually 100% of their time campaigning for the presidency. Further good news, the loser got to keep his or her current high paying job. Depending on the cycle the candidates for either or both of the major parties, and in some cases for minor parties, who are sitting politicians will be running for president or senator or representative while holding another public office without resigning from their current post. Particularly with the presidency or a U. S. Senate seat, the demands of seeking that office are such that the candidates have no option but to spend 100% – actually more time than most spend on a full-time job – of their time on the stump.

Just another example of the “exalted” class.  They get better health care, better pensions, regularly exempt themselves from many of the rules we have to abide by and actually think they deserve it. Whatever happened to public service being something one did for a short period of time and then returned to private life?
