Need A Good Funny Today...?
We can all use a good touch of humor from time to time, so I wanted to do my part to help!
I hope you can use these bits of wisdom to brighten your day! Heaven knows, we could all use some humor this time of the year!
Ever heard of a "paraprosdokian"? Apparently it's a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect.
So, really, it's just a silly word for a joke, and we figure our bosses will like this first one:
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. My desk is a work station.
Here's one of our favorites, followed by a whole bunch more:
If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "If an emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR."
The evening news is where they begin with "Good evening," and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.
Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.
To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.
Hospitality: making your guests feel like they're at home, even if you wish they were.
A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
"But why?" they asked.
"Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."
I hope you all find the time to smile a little and to help someone else smile today! After all, a smile can make others wonder what you're up to!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit. Supposed to be in the 70's today!
