Happy Hump Day


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.

Enjoy.



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."

(did you like it?)

I gotta tell ya, I did "aw" at the owls. I love owls anyway but that was super sweet. :)

LD Masterson said...

Jessica - They gave me an "aw", too. I guess everything sweet doesn't meow.

Cate Masters said...

You found my kitten! :) Actually our snow's mostly gone now, though many are still without electricity. Making me feel especially lucky!

Stephen Tremp said...

Thanks for the animal pics! Always a winner. Those bad little squirrels!

Isis Rushdan said...

Loved these pics. Just what I needed today :).

Angela Brown said...

The owls got me. How cute is that? Definitely got an "Awww" out of me.

Now about that groaner...I'm still scratching my head.

LD Masterson said...

Cate - Glad you escaped the worst of the storm.

LD Masterson said...

Stephen - My pleasure. Glad you liked them.

LD Masterson said...

Isis - Well then I'm extra glad you stopped by.

LD Masterson said...

Angela - Re. the groaner, it's a pun on the old song Some Enchanted Evening from South Pacific.

Some enchanted evening,
You may see a stranger...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The first one does it for me!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I love the kitties!!! We had a tabby cat that loved snow. She'd roll in it even.

Lydia Kang said...

Are you making up these jokes? Because they're so funny!

Those pictures are so cute!

Maria Zannini said...

The kittens are hilarious. There's always a ham in every family.

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Know someone like the cat in the corner, don't you?

LD Masterson said...

Diane - I didn't think cats were big on snow. All of our dogs have loved it.

LD Masterson said...

Lydia - I'd love to say all my groaners are of my own creation but a lot of them are stolen.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - I bet I can name the ham in yours.

Pidg said...

I am definitely an owl person...love, love, love! What's great about the squirrel is that someone stopped to take the picture instead of scaring it away. Haha!

Sarah Pearson said...

I love all of these, but the first one definitely gets my vote for winner :-)

And, I cracked up at the groaner :-)

LD Masterson said...

Pidg - You're right. Maybe the person taking the pitcher was the groom's jilted girlfriend. *grin*

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Yeah, that groaner did me in. And then I had the song stuck in my head.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

aw those owls are so cute! We have an owl living in our backyard. A great horned owl, to be specific. They eat other owls. Yeah...

Liz Fichera said...

Ha! Love the squirrel with the wedding cake!

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Owls eating owls? Blecky.

LD Masterson said...

Liz - Yup, had to laugh at that one.
