Happy Hump Day! Between Halloween and the beginning of NaNo (for those of you taking the plunge), this week had quite a jump start, but by now you're probably lagging a little and need a chuckle or an "aw" to get you over the hump and on the downhill slope to the weekend. So here's my contribution to the cause.
I love the expressions.
This is your "aw". Does it work for you if it doesn't include a kitten?
This one is for my friends in the northeast who got dumped on big time.
Somebody's gonna be maaaad.
Can you? Great! My work here is done.
Did any of these tickle your funny bone?
Groaner of the Day: [Note: I was hunting for a bit of information I thought was in one of my blogs from last year, so I was rumaging through them and came across this groaner. It's a re-run but still made me laugh so I decided to give it another go.]
There is a monastery where monks have taken a vow of near-silence. Each day begins with morning worship. The service starts when the head abbot comes in and chants, "Good morning."
The monks chant in reply, "Good morning."
They say not another word until evening vespers, when the head abbot comes in and chants, "Good evening."
The monks all reply in unison, "Good evening." Not another word is spoken until the next morning.
Several years ago one of the monks decided he had to break up the boredom of this routine. The next morning when the head abbot chanted, "Good morning," all the other monks responded, "Good morning", except the one bored monk who chanted, "Good evening."
Quickly, the head abbot sang in reply: "Some-one chanted 'evening'. He must be a stranger."
