Share the Laughter

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Only 19 days until Halloween, 42 days until Thanksgiving, and 74 days until Christmas.​

SAFETY DRIVING TIP: When approaching intersections where oncoming cars are stopped for you, DO NOT make eye contact with the driver. Watch the front of their car to see if it starts to move, but don’t look at the driver. For some reason, they will assume it’s okay to pull out in front of you.  I know, trust me.  Please be careful ….. you know how I do worry. ​​​

Nonsence = Wisdom:
1) A schoolteacher is a person who used to think they liked children.
2) It’s not the people who are in prison that worry me. It’s the people who aren’t.
3) It would be nice to be sure of anything the way some people are of everything.


Airline Rules:
A lady called the airline customer-service desk asking if she could take her dog on board.

“Sure,” said the airline employee, “as long as you provide your own kennel.”
She continued to explain that the kennel needed to be large enough for the dog to stand up, sit down, turn around, and roll over.

The lady was perplexed: “I’ll never be able to teach him all of that by tomorrow!”​​

PPS – Your Bonus:Two elderly sisters donated $5 to a charity and, to their surprise, won tickets to a football game. Since they had never seen a live football game before, Madge thought the free tickets would provide an excellent opportunity for doing so. “I think so, too,” said Mabel. “Let’s go!”

They soon found themselves high in a noisy stadium overlooking a large, grassy field. They watched the kickoff and the seemingly endless back-and-forth struggles that comprised the scoreless first half. They enjoyed the band music and cheerleader performance that followed.

Then came the second half. When the teams lined up for the second-half kickoff, Madge nudged her sister. “I guess we can go home now, Mabel,” she said. “This is where we came in.”


Tornado Safety Tip

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

“Humor is music to the soul, and you don’t have to carry a tune– just sing along!” – John Richardson
Please share this week’s funnies with someone you care about. (It’s free, and it feels good)

Safety Tip: It’s tornado season, and not everyone has a basement. Have you ever noticed when the news shows the devastation of a tornado that the only thing left standing and unharmed is a lone toilet? I don’t have a basement nor do I live near a train track. So, if I hear the sound of a train, that’s where I’m headed.  Please be careful ……. you know how I worry.”

Make someone laugh today,​

Dads:

Martin arrived at Sunday school late. Miss Walter, his teacher, knew that Martin was usually very punctual, so she asked him if anything was wrong.
Martin replied no that he had been going fishing, but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.
Miss Walter was very impressed and asked the lad if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing?
Martin replied, ‘Yes he did. Dad said he didn’t have enough bait for both of us’.

3 Ponders to Ponder:

1) Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
2) All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
3) Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Quote from Glenn’s Client
“To say people have talked about you since the convention is an understatement. Your act was refreshingly original and one of the funniest we have had ever seen. You will long be remembered as one of top best performers to have graced Upstate Magic Fest.”

PSS – Your Bonus Funny:

A little girl was sitting on her grandfather’s lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again.
Finally, she spoke up, “Grandpa, did God make you?” “Yes, sweetheart,” he answered, “God made me a long time ago.”
“Oh,” she paused, “Grandpa, did God make me, too?” “Yes, indeed, honey,” he said, “God made you just a little while ago.”
Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, “God’s getting better at it, isn’t he?”


Time For A Laugh Break

Friday, July 28th, 2017

June 29, is National Camera Day. George Eastman did not invent the camera, but he did improve the use, ease, and production of the camera, making it available to the world. I just discovered that I can actually make phone calls with my camera. Amazing!


July 4 Fun Facts:
1)  Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson served on the committee that picked the eagle for the national seal (Franklin wanted the turkey).
2)  Bald eagles have few natural enemies and live only in North America.
3)  Bald eagles get their white head and tail feathers about 4/5 years of age.
4)  Bald eagles are not, and never were bald. The term comes from when “bald” meant “white-headed”.
5)  Their maximum speed: 40 mph or over 100 mph while in a dive.
6)  Bald eagles mate for life, but if one dies, the survivor will accept a new mate.
7)  The only other kind of eagle in North America is the golden eagle.
8)  They can lift roughly half their body weight.
9)  The Bald Eagle is no longer considered endangered, and now only threatened.
10) It is a felony to shoot an eagle.


4th of July & Barbeque:
A man was out for a walk one day, and on his travels, he wandered through a farm. Strangely, he saw a pig with a wooden leg! This intrigued him so much he found the farmer and quizzed him about it.

“This is no ordinary pig,” said the farmer. “For example, only two days ago there was a fire in the chicken shed when I was away from the farm. The pig noticed this and immediately went and let all the chickens out into the yard. He then phoned for the fire department and came straight back to hold the fire until they arrived!”

“And a few weeks ago, I was driving my tractor down a steep hill, when I lost control and the vehicle overturned – knocking me unconscious! The pig saw this, phoned for the ambulance and then rushed to the tractor and pulled me clear of the cab just before it set on fire.”

The farmer was just about to launch into another tale when the man said: “Yes yes, but what about the wooden leg?”

“Well,” said the farmer “when you’ve got a pig as good as that, you don’t eat him all at once!”


Quote from Glenn’s Client
“Glenn’s combination of magic and comedy made our celebration a huge success.  People are still talking about his “Mind Reading Kit.”

4) “Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.”
5) “Well done is better than well said.”
6) “There never was a good war nor a bad peace.”
7) “Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”
8)  “Where there’s marriage without love, there will be love without marriage. ”
9)  “Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?”
10) “Little strokes fell great oaks.”

When Introductions Go Bad

When Introductions Go Bad

When Introductions Go Bad

I was honored and thrilled when the National Speakers Association featured my article in their publication. “SPEAKER Magazine”.

I should have recognized things were headed south when she walked to center stage, firmly planted her feet shoulder width apart, looked down, and began shuffling through pages of paper. This lady that had been given the task of introducing me to her association members. The same lady that told me earlier that afternoon, “I do not need your prepared introduction. I’ve put a lot of time, thought, and rehearsal into what I’m saying, and if you don’t let me use the introduction I’ve worked so hard on, I’ll be heartbroken.”

Well, I should have broken her heart that afternoon. Because that sweet little elderly lady had single handily …… (MORE)


JOKE TIME

A policeman on a motorcycle pulls over a car.

‘What’s up?’ says the driver.

‘Your wife fell out the passenger door 3 miles back,’ says the policeman.

‘Thank goodness for that,’ says the driver. ‘I thought I’d gone deaf.’


FARMER’S WISDOM

  1. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  2. Good judgment comes from experience and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
  3. Always drink upstream from the herd.

DID YOU KNOW?

A flamingo can only eat when its head is upside down, and they don’t taste like chicken.


QUOTE TO REMEMBER

Michael Pritchard


“Thank You” to Jeryl Anderson and Kelly Palmer for making sure I had everything I needed for my show and allowing me to be a part of your annual event. A special “Thank You” to your association members, their laughter, and for the jobs, they do every day. img_6360

Humor Is the Universal Language

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

You must watch this very funny & creative commercial for an insurance company based in the Netherlands. It was filmed in 2 days on location in Miami. I suggest watching it once or twice just as if you were watching TV in your living room.  Then go back, watch, pause, and restart multiple times to see how many subtle bits of humor are hidden within. This is ABOVE AVERAGE HUMOR in a well crafted commercial, that’ll make people laugh, remember, and purchase.

This international commercial proves “Humor Is the Universal Language”

 

NOTE:  On your 2nd, 3rd or 4th viewing, be sure to read the billboard signs, notice the cool classic cars, and the stainless steel Air Stream Diner. The amount of planning & details in this one short commercial are amazing. The background music is by a Dutch band. Who’d a thunk people in the Netherlands like Bluegrass? Maybe I need to get out more.   Bluegrass Boogiemen
