Hump Day Potpourri

Happy Hump Day

Here's our regular Wednesday post to get you over the mid-week hump and on your way to the weekend.

First, a computer tip you might find useful.

Next, a little video to get you energized (or maybe really tired).

What?  Isn't that how you warm up in the morning?

Okay, let's finish with a joke. 

Non-PC-Correct Alert!!!

My husband is Polish so naturally all his friends send him Polish jokes.  He loves them.  This morning he sent this one to me, and since I've been carrying his name all these years and have spent half my life trying to convince people it's not a typo (yes, Z-C-Z...), I'm claiming the right to share this one.

Milo and Stosh are standing on the 18th tee at the Polish Country Club. They are the final twosome in the Club Championship and are tied for the lead. The 18th hole is a beautiful par four with a deep valley descending down to a dogleg right.

Both Milo and Stosh hit long, straight tee shots which disappear down into the valley. A short time later, the fore caddie (also a Pole) appears at the top of the hill and announces that both balls are within a foot of each other, but there's a problem. Both of the golf balls are Titleist #4s.

Milo and Stosh look at each other and realize that they had not informed each other as to what kind of ball they were playing, nor its number.

They quickly descend into the valley and, sure enough, their two Titleist golf balls are right next to each at the bottom of the valley in the middle of the fairway.

Stosh looks at Milo and says, "We had better get a ruling from a tournament official to straighten this out. This is the championship and we don't want to be disqualified for hitting the wrong ball."

Soon after, a rules official appears and examines the two #4 Titleist golf balls. He then looks up at Milo and Stosh and says,

"Which one of you is playing the orange ball?

Oh, come on.  You know you laughed.  Or at least chuckled.

Now don't get all upset, I didn't forget your "aw".

What animals could teach us about friendship and acceptance if we'd only pay attention.

That's it for today.  Hope something here helped you over the hump and onto the downhill slide to the weekend.   Did you have a favorite?

Groaner for Today:

The past, the present, and the future walked into a bar.  It was tense.

Loved the password funny. And, of course, the Aw Moment :)

Linda G. said...

Ack! That video really leaves you hanging, doesn't it?

As usual, thanks for the aw and the groan. :)

Maria Zannini said...

Those kids in that video will probably be cursing themselves in 40 years when their knees give out.

Who knew jumping on concrete could loosen joints? I didn't---back then. Oy!

Ah, youth!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I groaned!
The first one is sheer genius if you ask me.

LD Masterson said...

Carol - I could use that idea myself.

LD Masterson said...

Linda G. - Want to know how he got down? Me, too.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - You used to jump off buildings?!? You Superwoman, you.

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Can't beat senior ingenuity.

Maria Zannini said...

Ref: You used to jump off buildings?!?

Close to it. When I was growing up in Chicago, the roofs of the old apartment buildings were close enough that we kids could jump them.

Linda Jackson said...

The morning run looks like something my daughter would do. Thanks for the hump day humor. :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

haha the last one is my favorite. i am repeating it tonight at dinner. thanks!
happy hump day!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Now that is an AWWWW!

Maryann Miller said...

I don't think my computer geek son would let me follow that password suggestion. LOL

Loved the aw picture. And the Polish joke. We grew up with a lot of Polish neighbors, so I am quite familiar with those.

I also loved the groaner. Made me laugh out loud. Thanks for the fun. I really did need it today.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Loved the groaner and the awww.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Yeah, I can see you doing that.

LD Masterson said...

Linda J - Your daughter must give you gray hair. :-)

LD Masterson said...

Annmarie - Thanks. Glad you liked it.

LD Masterson said...

Diane - Yup. High on the aw meter.

LD Masterson said...

Maryann - Probably not a good idea.

Glad I could give you some laughs when you needed them..

LD Masterson said...

Susan - Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed them.
