WELCOME to Friday April 13, 2018.
We’ll begin with a box and the plural is boxes.
The one fowl is a goose but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may found a lone mouse or a whole set of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of a foot and you show me your feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why should not the plural of booth be called beeth?
Then one may be that and three would be those,
Yet hat in the plural wouldn’t be hose.
And the plural of cat is cats and not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say Mother, we never say Methren,
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine she, shis and shim,
So English, I fancy you will all agree,
Is the funniest language you ever did see.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great weekend people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first,
the lesson afterwards: Vernon Sanders Law
There is a fine line between genius and insanity.
Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.
Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for
they shall never cease to be amused😁😁😁😁
a large suite on the top of a 75 story sky scraper. After a long day of meetings they were
upset to hear that the elevators in their hotel were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room. George said to Jack and Simon, let’s break the boredom of this horrendous climb by concentrating on something more interesting. I’ll tell jokes for 25 flights, and Jack can sing songs for 25 flights, and Simon can tell sad stories the rest of the way. At the 26th floor George stopped telling jokes and Jack began to sing. At the 51st floor Jack stopped singing and Simon began to tell sad stories. ‘I will tell my saddest story first,’ he muttered gloomily, ‘I left our room key in the car.’😱
