Friday Funnies


You know what I have learned from the Internet? There are a LOT of people out there that have a LOT of extra time on their hands. For example, people who write blogs about nothing really, that just go on and on and….. nevermind.

Here’s what’s funny:

1. Bic Pens for Her – A pink pen!! With a comfort grip?? I mean, WHAT took them so long? I can’t believe I’ve been writing with Pens for Him my entire life.

News about this Bic “Just for Her” pen was all over the place. This post was the funniest thing I read about it. Be sure to click on the links to the Amazon reviews at the end of this post… they’re also clever. But since I know that you’re a little bit lazy, I’ll just copy and paste the first one here to entice you…

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! August 24, 2012
Someone has answered my gentle prayers and FINALLY designed a pen that I can use all month long! I use it when I’m swimming, riding a horse, walking on the beach and doing yoga. It’s comfortable, leak-proof, non-slip and it makes me feel so feminine and pretty! Since I’ve begun using these pens, men have found me more attractive and approchable. It has given me soft skin and manageable hair and it has really given me the self-esteem I needed to start a book club and flirt with the bag-boy at my local market. My drawings of kittens and ponies have improved, and now that I’m writing my last name hyphenated with the Robert Pattinson’s last name, I really believe he may some day marry me! I’m positively giddy. Those smart men in marketing have come up with a pen that my lady parts can really identify with.Where has this pen been all my life???
Was this review helpful to you?
YES, Yes it has.

2. This is funny, only because I like to think of myself as looking like her when I drink Margs. All skipping happy and in an apron, of course.

Wait, I have that same bonnet.

Lately, I find myself thinking that I’m getting a little bit sick of these your e-card things. Just because they’re, like, everywhere. And then I see another one that makes me laugh out loud.

Like this one.

3. The following quotes from my husband and kids are funny. To me, anyway. If you don’t laugh, you must be dead inside. I’m just saying.

KJ: Nibbit, let’s go outside!
The Nibbit: No. I not going outside.
KJ: Yes, you are.
The Nibbit: No, I not.
KJ: Yes, you are. Because I’m the boss.
The Nibbit: No, Mommy’s the boss.
KJ: Well, Mommy told ME to tell YOU that it’s time to go outside.

The Loud One has been working on her birthday thank you notes for about three weeks now… it’s like pulling teeth. We had this exchange:

Me: All of your friends and cousins came to celebrate with you and brought you such awesome gifts so you need to thank them.
LO: Well, they are really awesome gifts. And I love them. But I don’t LOVE to write thank you notes.
Me: I hear ya, but it’s just one of those things you have to do.
LO: Grown-ups have some strange rules.

And JUST this afternoon, our doorbell rang and it was a guy handing out promotional materials for a local aspiring politician. I listened politely, shut the door and went back to my Us Weekly making dinner when the Loud One ran in…

LO: Who was that guy? What did he want?
Me: He is walking around trying to convince people to vote this man into office for our local government.
LO: Are you going to vote for him?
Me: I’m not sure… I have to learn more about him. I have to see if he believes in the same things that I do.
LO: Well, what if he tells you that he believes in the same things you do, but then he really doesn’t?
Me: Actually, that happens all the time, Loud One.
LO: That is totally unfair.


One last graphic to make you laugh:

So effing true.
