Man stuck in compost bin! – YouTube

 

This is my favorite video so far this week. The guy tries to explain that he got onto the composter to clean the gutter and fell in. Apparently he called to his family for help and they began filming instead because well, you would, right? Make sure you can hear it, the laughter is crazy!

40 Great Quotes about Marriage

Marriage Credit Rex Features

“Most women use more brains picking a horse in the third at Belmont than they do picking a husband” 

This quote is one of 40 in a slideshow by the Telegraph and is attributed to Actress Lauren Bacall (1924-2014), who was married to Humphrey Bogart. It makes a good quip doesn’t it? It should, because as commenter, allthoughtswork, noted, it was written by a screenwriter, not thought up by Ms Bacall. This is just one more example of the cultural issue we seem to have of confusing the character with the actor. Nice catch, allthoughtswork.

The Cat’s Meow

And other 20’s slang. I actually knew some of these because my Grandma was a Flapper. She told stories of how she and her friends would bind their breasts flat to fit in their beaded shimmy-dresses to go to the dance hall in Chicago after work. Even well into her eighties she could still Charleston and after a couple of glasses of giggle juice would have been happy to demonstrate, natch’. Do you recognize any of these? Do you think we should revive any?

Hobbits featured in Air NZ Safety video

This is too fun!

I’ve never seen anything like this on a flight before and I’d bet you never have either. They don’t miss a gag in this safety video. Wait ’til you see this plane too, it is a beauty. All my flights seem to be on 787s, the ugly buses of the airplane world 😉 Scott and I watched 3 seasons of Air Disasters on Netflix last weekend and I was pretty much ready to never fly again, but I can’t drive to New Zealand.LOL

My Penguin Joke

One Gentoo Penguin and two King Penguins walki...

This penguin joke is my favorite joke of all time, Really! It is cute, clean and suitable for any audience, just perfect for the holiday season…

A man pulls up to a Starbuck’s in his car and orders an espresso.

The barista notices three penguins sitting in the back seat of the car.

She asks the driver, “What’s up with the penguins in the back seat?”

He says “I found them and I have no idea what to do with them, not a clue.”

The barista ponders this and then says, “You should take them to the zoo.”

“Oh Thank you, that’s a good idea,” says the driver and drives away.

The next day the driver returns for another coffee and the barista sees that the penguins are still in the back seat of the car.

“Hey, they’re still here! I thought you were going to take them to the zoo.”

“Oh, I did,” says the driver, “And we had such a great time that today I am taking them to the beach.”

Different ways of telling the penguin joke:

I’ve read a version where a cop stops the car and yells at the man driving that transporting penguins is against the law and to take them to the zoo. Another has a gas station attendant noticing the penguins and suggesting the zoo. Sometimes the driver is a man, sometimes a woman, sometimes a blonde. 🙂

Have you ever seen My Favorite Year?

It is a film about the early days of television when shows were live action. Peter O’Toole stars and in a scene about midway through the film Benjamin Stone (Steinberg), played by Mark Linn-Baker, demonstrates to his date how to tell a joke using the classic joke style of his era. “This guy walks into a doctor’s office…” It is a very funny scene and a great movie.

A Funny Story from a friend’s fb page:

A husband wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table.

“Honey, breakfast is on the table, I left early to go grocery shopping. Love You!
