Friday funnies


Can you see the ridiculous in almost any situation?  Crack up at completely inappropriate moments? See no reason for levity to be less than godliness?  If this isn’t you, read on – I may yet convert you.  If this is you – what are you waiting for? Join in!

This week’s prime site: sloganizer

Go there, you know you want to!  Here’s what you could see (& I kid you not, this was the first one that came up!)

Friday funnies – be prepared.
Friday funnies will do anything for you.
Praise Friday funnies.
Inspired by Friday funnies.

Try it with your favourite manager’s name. Or your most avoided job.

Here’s what I got with my favourite pastime…
Procrastination, I want it all!

Failing that, try showing this to a teenager…

And how do you recognise a teenager? From one who knows… try these hallmarks

A Teenager is…

A person who can’t remember to walk the dog but never forgets a phone number.

A weight watcher who goes on a diet by giving up chocolate before breakfast.

A youngster who receives his/her allowance on Monday, spends it on Tuesday, and borrows from his/her best friend on Wednesday.

Someone who can hear a song by Lady Gaga played three blocks away but not his mother calling from the next room (unless the call is accompanied by the sound of a wallet being opened)

A whiz who can operate any X-box game without a lesson but can’t make a bed.

A student who will spend 12 minutes studying for her history exam and 12 hours for her driver’s license.

Has a floordrobe.

Spends all day avoiding the shower, then all night to get out of the shower.

A connoisseur of two kinds of fine music: Loud and Very Loud.

A young woman who loves the cat and tolerates her brother.

A person who is always late for dinner but always on time to hear a band.

A romantic who never falls in love more than once a week.

A lad who can sleep until noon on any Saturday when he suspects the lawn needs mowing.

An original thinker who is positive that her mother was never a teenager.

A nonconformist who makes sure every piece of clothing has the same label as her friends.

Sound familiar?!

A favourite site for me is The Chalkboard Manifesto – here’s a sample

This is how I’m going to procrastinate my marking…

Have a good one!
Oh, here’s a corgi – it’s Queen’s Birthday weekend in NZ, one sloppy corgi kiss for all monarchists coming right up!

ps, if anyone knows the origins of any of the jokes on here please let me know so I can attribute them. I collect these things like a magpie and some have no record of origin.

Preparing for the weekend is serious business IMHO.  After a busy week full of challenges, the last thing we need is to go into a weekend without forethought.  Friday funnies is, therefore, a service brought to you in the interests of effective outcomes and an adequate systems view.  A procedure manual is under development, but in its absence, I hereby provide you with a flowchart for ready reference.

Oh darn, that’s the work one…

Oh no! That’s my default one…

Ooops! That’s the one for when you’re playing XBox or some other video roleplaying game…

That one came from my son…

So I’ll stop now while I’m ahead (not my usual style, I know!) and instead direct you to this piece of wonderful wisdom – and wish you a happy weekend!

Have you had a hard week? Is Saturday taking too long to arrive? Read on and be prepared!

The ever-learning Diane Jacobs on Twitter @dfjpt Sharon Begley on neural correlates of culture on fMRI. (Maybe we could see the brain as being like a tree, a living… http://bit.ly/919wpY

My friend @AuntieStress on Twitter ‘Difficult people in your life? Remember, you can only manage you. (Ongoing project!)’

…and what I saw on Sunday last week & sometimes how I feel at work (with less sunshine!)

Have a good one – and if you do try this, have Emergency Department on speed-dial on your phone OK?

Friday Funnies!


No.  I am the Christmas Grinch right now.  After hearing various cheesy and horrid renditions of Christmas Carols when I went into the local shopping mall, I can tell you the LAST thing I want to think of are Season’s Greetings!

So, nothing Christmassy here – instead you’ll see good, wholesome humour of the worst kind.  Sorry.

Oh no, another cutesy animal picture… bring me a bucket!

Last but not least (and this is NOT me!)

Friday Funnies!


Never fear, the Friday funnies are here to prepare you for the weekend!

OK I know they’re groan-making, but they are a change from standing on a soapbox preaching to all and sundry! And they might give you an insight into my somewhat looney take on life.

This was sent to me by someone who is NOT a native New Zealander – she reckoned her dearly beloved Kiwi male wrote it to her during their courtship, I don’t know about that…

Of course I love ya darlin
You’re a bl**dy top-notch bird
And when I say you’re gorgeous
I mean every single word
So ya bum is on the big side
I don’t mind a bit of flab
It means that when I’m ready
There’s somethin there to grab
So your belly isn’t flat no more
I tell ya, I don’t care
So long as when I cuddle ya
I can get my arms round there
No sheila who is your age
Has nice round perky breasts
They just gave in to gravity
But I know ya did ya best
I’m tellin’ ya the truth now
I never tell ya lies
I think its very sexy
That you’ve got dimples on ya thighs
I swear on me nanna’s grave now
The moment that we met
I thought you was as good as
I was ever gonna get
No matter what u look like
I’ll always love ya dear
Now shut up while the footy’s on
And fetch another beer.

Given that she’s married to him, it must have worked huh?!

OK, one for the boys now – and a woman sent this one to me too!

I couldn’t possibly say whether that fits with me at all!
And a couple from me now – I apologise in advance. Sorry.
Friday funny

Frivolous Friday – a bit like liquorice allsorts!


Sorry guys, but first up is for the girls (mainly)!

Ladies, if you haven’t ever experimented with real makeovers, today you can do it without spending a cent, without having to get the makeup on or off, and it’s as simple as loading up a photo and playing!  Go here for hours (really? maybe minutes) of free fun trying on new looks without the fear that it’s actually happening in the real world.  OK so I really hate the ‘choose a star’ to look like aspect, but what a hoot if you have a spare few moments!

And now for something completely different – AllPysch Online, the Virtual Psychology Classroom.  If you’ve ever wanted to recap on your old psych 101 learning, you can head into here and take one (or more) of the ‘academic’ tests, like this one on research methods (go on, see if you can beat my score – 80% first up!)  There are a nice set of online games for fun and wasting time, especially if it’s wet over the weekend.  And of course there are heaps of online texts – all free, and although not updated since 2004 (:-(), hopefully the majority of them will still be relatively accurate.

OK, this one is for the boysgeekgadgets at GeekAlerts! You have got to be amazed at the inventiveness of some of these people (who would have thought you needed a mini UV ray detector to carry around on your keyring?

Now for this last shot – never ever forget this when you complain about having no room in the car, OK?

Well, maybe not quite the last thing – here’s everything you needed to know about liquorice allsorts, and here’s a link to more and a picture to boot.  nomnomnom

Feel like wasting a little time in the name of research?


Did I say wasting? should be spending or investing some time in research – but who am I kidding?
I came across this website last night, after I’d been out dancing for a couple of hours and needed to wind down… Anyway, it’s a legitimate research site from Aberdeen University, looking into a bunch of topics, but the one that was fun for me (sad creature that I am) is all about faces.

If you go to this page you can spend ages ‘creating’ an average face from the many that are already loaded onto the page – and see how the ‘average’ face always looks more ‘beautiful’ than the individual ones. There is a link to information on facial symmetry, attractiveness, and integrating social cues when judging attractiveness.

You can also ‘make a baby’ from a shot of ma and a shot of pa – creating a ‘morph’ of the two!!

And if you’re smart, you can do this at work – and say that you’re actually contributing to serious research. So what are you waiting for?

geeks and pshrinks toys


OK, this will only appeal to a few of us… but I couldn’t resist!

This site is called Coolpsychologystuff (yeah right) and contains gifts YOU can give to the psychologist geek in YOUR life – like the finger puppet Freud (I am NOT kidding), and a Naughty Teddy (well I could probably think of a few people who would like a naughty teddie but not THAT kind of teddy OK?)…

I tell you, browsing the internet can really be inspiring!
