Hump Day Funnies - What's the Weather?

Happy Hump Day

Here are your hump day funnies to help you over the mid-week hump and on to the weekend.

But don't party too hard this weekend. You don't want to end up with this problem.

Aw, come. You know you've been there.

Um, not that I ever...I mean, maybe... 

Moving right along - here's a tip for the coming winter.

It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in Mattawa asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.  To be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

Then, being a practical leader, he went to the phone booth, called the Weather Network and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?'

'Yes, it looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.

A couple weeks later, he called the Weather Network again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

'Yes,' the man at Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.'

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later, the chief called the Weather Network again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?'

'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.'

'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, 'Because the Indians are collecting a sh*tload of firewood.'

Explains a lot about our weather forecasts, doesn't it? 

Speaking of weather...wind can be a problem, too.

I hate to admit that I found that funny but it looks like they were all okay.

Here's a headline I found interesting.

I wonder why?

Remember the Honey Badger craze last year? How about this one?

Sorry, I probably found that funny because that squirrel lives in our yard and makes my Sophie crazy.

Okay, let's get to everyone's favorite - the "aw".

I had a couple to choose from this week but I just loved the faces in this one.

Did it work for you, too?

Okay, that's it. Hope you found a funny in here that lifted you over the hump and you can coast through the end of the week. Did you have a favorite?  

Have a great weekend and I'll see you next Wednesday.

Definitions for Today:

SECRET: Something you tell to one person at a time.

SKELETON: A bunch of bones with the person scraped off.

YAWN: An honest opinion openly expressed.

LOL the weather story is perfect. :D And I totally loved Honey Badger so this squirrel cracks me up. Happy Hump Day! :)

Robin said...

The Indians and the firewood... that was too funny. And, yes, it explains a lot.

The ducks being blown around in that video was amazing. I think of all the times I have felt "blown" by the wind, but I can't say it ever literally knocked me off my feet. Amazing how they just got right back up again, though, isn't it???

Our dog used to be fascinated by squirrels. It has passed. Now, it is cats. And there is one neighborhood cat who likes to stand in our yard and leisurely clean him/herself. Drives the dog insane. So, I can relate to that one.

LD Masterson said...

Julie - Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Robin - What really got me about the ducks was how the little ones got right back in formation. Never could get my kids to behave that well.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The one about the Indians collecting all that firewood was definitely funny!

Maryann Miller said...

Enjoyed the fun as usual. So glad you kept this feature on your blog.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Love the duck video and the weather forecast. Weathermen and politicians, the only people who keep their jobs after lying and always being wrong.

Heather Holden said...

These are great, as always! That definition for "skeleton" is hilarious...

Nicki Elson said...

I'm so happy that video had a happy ending. Those little duckies sure do know how to drop & roll!

The first picture had me laughing so much it took me a bit before I could scroll down.

Happy Hump Day!

Julie Dao said...

Loved the firewood story! I wonder if it did turn out to be a cold winter! And that duck video is so adorable... glad they all scurried back to their mom eventually.

mshatch said...

Love that first pic. lol.

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Thanks.

Maryann - Me, too. I enjoy doing it.

Susan G/K - The duck video blew me away. (Oh, I'm sorry.)

Heather - It would work well for a good murder mystery, don't you think?

Nicki - I love how fast they re-grouped.

Julie - Glad you enjoyed them.

mshatch - But no one is owning up to knowing the feeling. *grin*

Sarah Allen said...

The ducklings I watched three times. Wonderful stuff. You definitions of a skeleton and a secret are pure 'Clay Cross.' : )

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Don'tcha love a good aw.

Rhonda - You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed.

Mike - Yeah, I've watched it a bunch of times. Can't help myself.

I love your hump day posts, LD, even though I usually don't see it until the weekend. Thanks for putting these together for our viewing pleasure.

Carol Kilgore said...

I missed stopping by last week, so I read back to catch up. Since you'll only be around on Wednesdays, I'll be back again then. Once a week is all I can manage...and last week I didn't do a good job of that at all.

Loved the Aw Moment :)

Tara Tyler said...

Pk - Thanks. Glad you like them.

Tina - You do? Is it yours? *grin*

Lexa - My pleasure.

Liz - Yup, me, too.

Patricia - Hey, the weekend can use some laughs, too.

Carol - Looks like a lot of us are having to cut back to once a week. Wish there were more hours in the day.

Tara - Sarcasm? Who? Me?
