Hump Day - On the Technical Side

Happy Hump Day

As usual, today's post is dedicated to giving you a little boost - in the form of giggles, chuckles, or even a good solid laugh - to get you over the mid-week hump and on the downhill slope to the weekend.

On Monday, I participated in Alex Cavanaugh's Favorite Genre Blogfest.  It was fun and I made some new friends.  Not surprisingly, if you follow Alex's blog, a lot of the participants listed their favorite genre for movies and/or books as sci fi. Well, I just happened to receive this vid clip that discusses one of the more delicate (or indelicate) aspects of space travel. The topic is a little gross but the final line is worth it.

Okay, staying with a technical theme...have you had this problem?

If you have, did you call for tech support?

I may have used my grandkids for tech support, but not at that age.

I'm more likely to need this kind of help.

I'm not sure if there was any "help" given here. 

What do you think?

Oh, don't panic.  I didn't forget your weekly "awww".

You know you said it.

Okay, did that do it?  Are you over the hump and coasting to the weekend?  Did you have a favorite?

Groaner of the Day:  I know, I know - I promised to cut back on the groaners but some of my new visitors liked the one on Monday and I just want to give them one more.  (Then they'll know better than to encourage me.)

A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered dolphins that could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of seagulls. One day, his supply of the birds ran out so he had to go out and trap some more. On the way back, he spied two lions asleep on the road. Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them. Immediately, he was arrested and charged with...

transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.

(Oh, I'm so sorry.)

(Oh, I'm so sorry.) And so you should be! That's a stinker : )

Ref tech problems, my provider - for £9 a month will remotely take control of your computer and fix almost anything while you sit and watch. I watch most things.

Oy. That was worse than usual. You're really getting good at being bad. LOL!

But I loved the laughing dog and toilet cat. That would so happen in my house.

But please don't stop--I love 'em! (I know. It's a sickness.)

Stacy McKitrick said...

Loved the clip! Shooting stars!!!

I think that giraffe saw MY spider! ha ha!

Morgan said...

That giraffe pic... *shakes head* ;)

LD Masterson said...

Mike - Any idea how old that tech support provider is? I think he's cheaper than my grandkids.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Yeah, it really was bad.

I'm afraid if we had a cat, poor Sophie would be the one getting dunked.

LD Masterson said...

Linda G. - Is there a self-help group for groaner addicts?

LD Masterson said...

Stacy - That clip cracked me up. Even if it was a little gross.

LD Masterson said...

Morgan - Sadly, if I'd seen the spider, I'd be up there with him.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That is a groaner! And I can relate to the Firefox issue.

Angela Brown said...

Oh LD...That groaner hurt lol!!!

And so now we can tell the kiddos that when they wish upon a star, they're actually wishing upon a tank of Sugar-Honey-Iced-Tea. Wow. No more wishing for me, either :-)

LD Masterson said...

Alex - I love the way you made your groaner comment totally non-commital.

LD Masterson said...

Angela - A tank of.... exactly.

Sarah Allen said...

So So good! The "I was pushed" cat is my favorite :)
