Happy Hump Day
And happy August 1st. What? It isn't August 1st? The 15th?!? How did that happen?
Well, I'm back from our trip to Disney World and apparently from a little extra two week time warp. But I'm just in time to give you that much needed boost over the mid-week hump and onto the easy slide to the weekend.
In honor of the Olympics (weren't they wonderful?), this week's Hump Day funnies come to us from jolly old England. The following are little snippets from various British newspapers.
Commenting on a complaint from a Mr. Arthur Purdey about a large gas bill, a spokesman for North West Gas said, "We agree it was rather high for the time of year. It's possible Mr. Purdey has been charged for the gas used up during the explosion that destroyed his house."
(The Daily Telegraph)
Irish police are being handicapped in a search for a stolen van, because they cannot issue a description. It's a Special Branch vehicle and they don't want the public to know what it looks like. (The Guardian)
A young girl who was blown out to sea on a set of inflatable teeth was rescued by a man on an inflatable lobster. A coast guard spokesman commented, "This sort of thing is all too common". (The Times)
At the height of the gale, the harbourmaster radioed a coastguard and asked him to estimate the wind speed. He replied he was sorry, but he didn't have a gauge. However, if it was any help, the wind had just blown his Land Rover off the cliff. (Aberdeen Evening Express)
I'm not sure where these came from but they're worth a chuckle:
Don't worry, I haven't forgotten your "aw". It's a good one.
You know you said it.
Did you have a favorite?
Please say hi when you stop by so I'll know you haven't forgotten me. I'll be coming by your blog soon.
