You Know You're Gonna Laugh


Happy Hump Day.

I'm back from my little mini break in time to help you over the mid-week hump and onto the easy downhill to the weekend.  Let's start off with a little warning...




And while we're enjoying our feline friends, here's my favorite Simon's Cat.  If you've never seen this one, take a couple minutes and enjoy.





I have a dog like that.


Now here's something you rarely see these days.  A joke that's clean and funny.
(But not about cats or dogs.  Sorry.)


The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute.. The substitute wanted to know what to play.

"Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."

During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."

At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."

And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!



Okay - back to cats.

 


Not laughing yet?  Well, they say that laughter's contagious.  Listen to this clip and let's see it it true.  The jury is still out on whether this piece was real or staged but it's too funny either way.

 
 

 
 
Oh come on, you've got to be laughing now.
 
 
And I didn't forget your "aw".  Just look at that face as you read the caption.
 
 
You know you said it.
 
 
Okay, that should do it.  Don't forget to say hi and let me know what tickled your funny bone.
 
 
Groaner of the Day:  No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.

I don't know if that voicemail was staged but it definitely sounded like someone from Dallas.

And the little old ladies...definitely Texas.

That's just the way we roll. :)

Jessica R. Patch said...

I loved the first one with the cats and the adoption one and of course the joke! I'll have to tell that one to my pastor!

Happy Hump Day, lady! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Thanks for cheering me up. I love it when the old ladies started beating on the man.

Larri SeamsInspired said...

I'm laughing! :) Happy Wednesday!

Lydia Kang said...

That phone message made my day! Better than the joke!

Julie Dao said...

I love when that guy on the phone call starts cracking up and comparing one of the old ladies to a jackhammer. HAHAHHAHA!

Sarah Ahiers said...

Hah! Groaner for the win!

Maryann Miller said...

The adoption poster and the sad little dog made me cry. Okay, I'm a bit emotional of late.

So glad you added the jokes to perk me back up again. I was looking for a joke to use to open our Nite of Comedy at the art center this Saturday, and I might use the pastor one. That was funny and fits this East Texas area that has more churches than I've ever seen in a community of 3500 people. LOL

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Yay, a vote for my little groaner. Glad you liked it.

LD Masterson said...

Maryann - The dog definitely got me.

Please do borrow that joke. Or you might like this one - similar theme:

Pastor to his congregation: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets."

LD Masterson said...

Hey Eve - I get the same treatment from my dog (also minus the bat).

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Simon's cat would find himself an outdoor cat at that point!

The cats crack me up. I think above all creatures, they love the camera and the camera loves them.

LD Masterson said...

Mike - Do you think models come back as cats in their next life?
