Nobody's asked

.
I am really thankful.
Jim Sullivan, masterblogger that he is, challenged a few of his followers to re-blog some of their own contributions to Internet entertainment. Fortunately, this blog was not among the selectees. If you follow both blogs, his and mine, you need no explanation.

That said, I can easily name my most popular post. For this week it is this one, which interestingly enough is untitled; and the all time favorite, by far, is this. I'm not going to enumerate what other types of posts he asked to have re-blogged... except to mention the two mention above also would easily fit into the category of posts whose success surprised me. But then almost any success of posts here have surprised me.

In case anyone's wondering about the dearth of posts lately... I dunno.

There's a new release of Shel Silverstein poems

Dirty Clothes

Some put 'em in a washer,
Some toss 'em in a tub,
Some dump 'em in a laundry truck
For someone else to scrub.
Some stick 'em in a hamper,
Some stuff 'em in a sack.
I never worry 'bout 'em—
I just keep 'em on my back


Actually it's new book called Everythin On It.
Gotta get me some o' that book.

The president is offering a plan to cut the deficit by three kazootatillion dollars. Ask to comment, a spokesperson said, “It is so a real number!”

How to get to Heaven from Scotland ...


I was testing children in my Glasgow Sunday School class to see if they understood the concept of getting into heaven.

I asked them,
"If I sold my house and my car, had a big jumble sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?"
"NO!" the children answered.

"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?"
Again, the answer was 'No!'

By now I was starting to smile.
"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweeties to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?"
Again, they all answered 'No!'

I was just bursting with pride for them.
I continued, "Then how can I get into heaven?"

A six year old boy shouted,

"Yuv goat tae be fu*in' deid"


Kinda brings a wee tear tae yir e'e....


...and could possible make ya pee, too.

fine until he stuck his index finger up my butt! Do you think I should change dentists?

I saw a poor old lady fall over today on the ice! At least I presume
she was poor - she only had $1.20 in her purse.

Don't ask the question if you don't already know the answer

"How Do You Spell?"

A young camper at summer camp asked the
chaplain if "hard on" was hyphenated.

The chaplain replies, "What in heaven's name
are you writing home about!"

The young boy says, "I'm telling Mom and Dad
about the project we worked so 'hard on'."

Is this blog going to the dogs?

.
"You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog."
~ Harry S. Truman
I'm kinda into dog quotes this week. Here are two more:

"Dog - a kind of additional or subsidiary Deity designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world's worship."
~ Ambrose Bierce
"The time to save is now. When a dog gets a bone, he doesn't go out and make a down payment on a bigger bone. He buries the one he's got. "
~ Will Rogers

Eggs

.

Ed came home drunk one night, slid into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber.
He awoke before the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter said, 'You died in your sleep, Ed.'
Ed was stunned. 'I'm dead? No, I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!'
St. Peter said, 'I'm sorry, but there's only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken.'
Ed was devastated, but begged St. Peter to send him to a farm near his home. The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking and pecking the ground.
A rooster strolled past. 'So, you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?'
'Not bad,' replied Ed the hen, 'but I have this strange feeling inside. Like I'm gonna explode!'
'You're ovulating,' explained the rooster. 'Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before?
'Never,' said Ed.
'Well, just relax and let it happen,' says the rooster. 'It's no big deal.'
He did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! He was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg -- his joy was overwhelming.
As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard.....
"Ed, wake up! You shit the bed!"

"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous,
he will not bite you;
that is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
