Monday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!

WELCOME to Monday February 4, 2019.
Take time to laugh at yourself and the ridiculous in life. It is so refreshing to just laugh at
your slips, peculiarities, forgetfulness, and fumbles. Humor has the power to dull the sharp edges of life and is a great tension reliever. Laughter stimulates the soul and boosts the immune system.  There are medical researchers who assert that laughter reduces levels of certain stress hormones. But, beyond this, laughter is curative. It is just good medicine for the sluggish spirit and an effective weapon against despair. It is like perfumed oil to the soul and brings joy to the spirit.  Do not take everything people say and do so seriously. Stop wearing your feelings on your sleeves. Sometimes, it is emotionally prosperous to just smile at the ridiculous, grin at the obnoxious and laugh at the absurd. Transform life’s “ugh” into laughter. It was Sterne who asserted, “I live in a constant endeavor to fence against the infirmities of ill-health, and other evils of life, by humor. I am persuaded that every time a man smiles – but much more so when he laughs – it adds something to this fragment of life.”  Let the gift of laughter enhance your life.  In the midst of problematic situations, steal moments of humor. You will be astonished to find that for those moments, your problems disappear. For those few moments, your problems do not exist in your reality and life is wonderful.  When the humorous moments pass, the problems no longer seem as monumental as you thought.
Embrace humor. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! HAVE A GREAT MONDAY PEOPLE! Whatever you do, don’t forget to LAFF IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…

One October my wife and I spent a vacation on Washington’s
Olympic Peninsula. We were eager to visit the rain forests
near the coast, but we heard that snow slides had made
some of the roads impassable. Although apprehensive about
the conditions we might run into, we drove on.

Sure enough, we had gone only a short way up the High Rain
Forest road when we saw a sign: “Ice 10 miles.” Five miles
farther on there was another: “Ice 5 miles.” The next one
was: “Ice 1/2 mile.” We practically crept that half-mile.

We came to the last sign. It was outside a small grocery,
and it read: “Ice 75 cents.” 😱😳😁


Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???

“Savannah would be better for ya. You’d just get in trouble in Atlanta.”
“What trouble are you talking about?”
Answer:Gone with the Wind!
In this scene Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Mammy (Hattie McDaniel) are discussing where Scarlett should temporarily move to when the widowed Scarlett wanted to move because she is bored at home (because of the stringent mourning rules in the South at that time). When Mammy says line one, Scarlett pretends to not understand what she means and says line two. Mammy says, “You know what trouble I’s talkin’ ’bout. I’s talking ’bout Mr. Ashley Wilkes. He’ll be comin’ to Atlanta when he gets his leave, and you sittin’ there waitin’ for him, just like a spider. He belongs to Miss Melanie.” “Gone with the Wind” tells the story of a fictitious strong-willed, manipulative woman and a devilish but realistic man, set against the backdrop of the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction.

Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Well… it’s somebody who doesn’t believe there’s a divine being dispensing justice to mankind.” “I’m a pagan, too.”
