Happy Hump Day - and We Have a Winner

Happy Hump Day.

First, let me congratulate the winner of last week's Caption Contest, Sarah Allen.  Sarah, I'll be contacting you by e-mail so you can chose your prize.  Thanks to everyone for playing.  You always come up with some great captions.

Something a little different today.  The following series of pictures show debating church signs.  Yes, they are obviously fake and I mean no disrespect to anyone's faith or church affiliation - but this made me laugh out loud so I'm sharing it with you.












For my own part, I offer this quote from Will Rogers:  "If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went."

And since I can't ask you to get through Hump Day without at least one "aw", I offer this little face...



You said it.  I know you did.

Groaner of the Day:  (I've got a theme going today)  There was a young boy who lived with his family on a farm in the countryside. One building on the farm was a large ice-house, where produce was stored until market day.

One day, the boy was playing near the ice-house, and happened to notice that a family of wrens (small birds) had got themselves trapped in the building. The boy opened the doors, and tried to coax them out, but oddly, they didn't seem to want to come.

The boy was very worried about the little birds because it was so cold in the ice-house, and checked on them every day.  To be certain they'd be okay, he included them in his nightly prayers...

"...and God bless all the little chilled wrens."

ROTFL! The crazy thing is I've heard people debate this in real life.

My thinking is, if my dogs aren't there, it can't be heaven.

Larri @ Seams Inspired said...

Hilarious! People are so silly.

PS...I did it. I said, "Aww!" ☺

Too funny! Thanks for sharing.

I think the reason dogs don't go to heaven is because there are no fire hydrants for them to pee on. Only fires burning are in hell. And we know they don't have any.:) lol

Very cute!!

For real though, I have no idea where animals go after they die. But it is frequently debated and if my son asks, I'm saying heaven.

That was hilarious!!!
Hey, the dogs from my childhood better be there when I get to Heaven.

LD Masterson said...

Mary - Love those assorted reactions.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - I believe in the Rainbow Bridge. They'll be waiting for me and we'll go in together.

LD Masterson said...

Larri - As Maria said, I've heard this argued as a serious debate but these signs were just too funny.

LD Masterson said...

Stacy - You're welcome.

LD Masterson said...

Mason - And a most excellent Wednesday to you, too.

LD Masterson said...

Jessica - I'm figuring, since it's Heaven, there will be some fire hydrant substitutes around.

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Absolutely. They have to be there.

Pidg said...

Oh the signs were just what I needed tonight! What a great laugh!

Sarah Pearson said...

This whole post made my day a little better :-)

LD Masterson said...

Pidg - Glad I met the need. That's what I'm shooting for.

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Watch for an e-mail from me today. I'll explain the delay when I send it.

Gregg said...

That is too funny!

LOVE the dueling church signs.

I'd seen an earlier version of this that ended with telling the Presbyterian dogs to talk to their pastors. Love the additions.

LD Masterson said...

Gregg - Glad you liked it.

LD Masterson said...

Mary - I thought this one had been making the round for a while but I never saw the earlier version. This was just too funny not to share.
