Friday Funnies


It’s been a while since I posted a Friday Funnies – my apologies. I’m happy to say that despite this lack, my sense of humour has remained intact, fed by regular dollops of my favourite cartoons from The Oatmeal (who can resist the call of “15-ish Things Worth Knowing About Coffee“, or “Ten Words You Need To Stop Misspelling“, or even “Cat vs Internet“?), and XKCD – the authors who announce the site to be

A webcomic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.

– and who add this warning: Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors). I mean – how could I resist?

What’s best about XKCD is that their cartoons are Creative Commons – so I can share legally! (but not sell).

On the original site, if you hover your mouse over the second box it says “If it were anything over a 2 I wouldn’t be able to answer because it would mean a pause in the screaming.”  So true.

And my final source of glee and giggles (don’t blame me, that’s alliteration for you) is Hyperbole and a Half

Go HERE and be transfixed – I so remember this when I was a kid…These guys are also responsible for “The Real Pain Scale”.

Which all contributed to this little piece from me, so it’s really not my fault at all.  I know.  I’m just not in the same league.

Before I head out to do a little Christmas shopping – yes, in a MALL, at CHRISTMAS! I must be mad – anyway, I had to pass on the following bits of gossip.  It’s true, you heard it here first.

Have a good weekend – and if there’s no post on Monday you’ll know it’s because I’ve got LOST!

Friday funnies!


My world may have been rocked by the late-night quakes, but my humour remains THE SAME! Sorry.
I was talking to SuperTherapist the other day, and she whispered some sayings to help maintain that sense of calm and serenity that is necessary when returning to work after a week away. I’m not so sure this was all that helpful...”Be patient and achieve all things. Be impatient and achieve all things faster.”
Neither were these, probably…

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical
sensation is a symptom of a terminal illness.

To practice Zen and the art of therapeutic
motorcycle maintenance, do the following:
get rid of the motorcycle.
What were you thinking? – and you’ve run out of duct tape.

I’m not running out of ideas, just running out of time, so today’s FF’s are not original.  If anyone is the copyright owner of these and doesn’t want them on here, please let me know – they’ve arrived (usually) via someone else’s email!

Working in a sometimes management-heavy workplace I wonder if there is a manual that tells managers to use the word ‘team’…

Can you tell how much Manly Jack loves me? he thought this would be a good idea…

And if you’re looking for some total idiocy for the day, head to ‘Sleep Talkin’ Man’ – this man makes more sense asleep than some of our politicians do when they’re wide awake!

I’m off to our favourite spot north of Christchurch – here’s a peek at what we see there.
