Friday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!

WELCOME to Friday February 1, 2019.

1.  Never give me work in the morning. Always wait until
4:00 and then bring it to me.  The challenge of a deadline
is refreshing.

2.  If it’s really a rush job, run in and interrupt me
every 10 minutes to inquire how it’s going. That helps.
Or even better, hover behind me, advising me at every

3.  Always leave without telling anyone where you’re going.
It gives me a chance to be creative when someone asks where
you are.

4.  If my arms are full of papers, boxes, books, or
supplies, don’t open the door for me.  I need to learn how
to function as a paraplegic and opening doors with no arms
is good training in case I should ever be injured and lose
all use of my limbs.

5.  If you give me more than one job to do, don’t tell me
which is priority. I am a psychic.

6.  Do your best to keep me late. I adore this office and
really have nowhere to go or anything to do. I have no
life beyond work.

7.  If a job I do pleases you, keep it a secret. If that
gets out, it could mean a promotion.

8.  If you don’t like my work, tell everyone. I like my
name to be popular in conversations. I was born to be

9.  If you have special instructions for a job, don’t write
them down. In fact, save them until the job is almost done.
No use confusing me with useful information.

10.  Never introduce me to the people you’re with. I have
no right to know anything.  In the corporate food chain,
I am plankton.  When you refer to them later, my shrewd
deductions will identify them.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! HAVE A WONDERFUL COLD WEEKEND PEOPLE!
Whatever you do, don’t forget to LAFF IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…

Tony, having his second son christened, was much concerned
about getting the correct name on the birth certificate.

you I wanted to name my first boy Tom, you wrote on his
birth certificate ‘Thomas.’

In this scene Assistant U.S. Attorney General James A. Wells (Wilford Brimley) is chairing a meeting of the main characters, in this movie about trying to unravel what looks like a case of political corruption.

In order to get even, he cooks up an ingenious scheme. When Wells says to Gallagher, “I seem to wanna ask if you set all this up.

Thursday’s Quizzler is……

Pirate Pete had been captured by a Spanish general and sentenced to death by his 50-man firing squad.

Pete cringed, as he knew their reputation for being the worst firing squad in the Spanish military. They were such bad shots that they would often all miss their targets and simply maim their victims, leaving them to bleed to death, as the general’s tradition was to only allow one shot per man to save on ammunition. The thought of a slow painful death made Pete beg for mercy.

“Very well, I have some compassion. You may choose where the men stand when they shoot you and I will add 50 extra men to the squad to ensure someone will at least hit you. Perhaps if they stand closer they will kill you quicker, if you’re lucky,” snickered the general. “Oh, and just so you don’t get any funny ideas, they can’t stand more than 20 ft away, they must be facing you, and you must remain tied to the post in the middle of the yard. And to show I’m not totally heartless, if you aren’t dead by sundown I’ll release you so you can die peacefully outside the compound. I must go now but will return tomorrow and see to it that you are buried in a nice spot, though with 100 men, I doubt there will be much left of you to bury.”

After giving his instructions the general left. Upon his return the next day, he found that Pete had been set free alive and well. “How could this be?” demanded the general. “It was where Pete had us stand,” explained the captain of the squad.

Where did Pete tell them to stand?

Answer: Pete told them to form a circle around him. All the squad was facing in at Pete, ready to shoot, when they realized that everyone who missed would likely end up shooting another squad member. So no one dared to fire, knowing the risk. Thus at sundown he was released.


Friday’s Quizzler is…….

A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need only sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?

1) a circular depression & a part for a canine actor
2) a container for an alcoholic beverage & an insignificant insect
3) a container for a container & the bottom of a coffin
4) a cunning wolf relative & insect foot coverings
