Wednesday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!



WELCOME to Wednesday July 3, 2019

Here’s the story….really…..
My friend called a Venetian-blind repairman to come pick up a faulty blind. The next morning,
while the family was at breakfast, the doorbell rang. My friend’s wife went to the door, and the man outside said, “I’m here for the Venetian blind.”  Excusing herself in a preoccupied way, the wife went to the kitchen, fished a dollar from the food money, pressed it into the repairman’s hand, then gently closed the door and returned to the table.  “Somebody collecting,” she explained, pouring the coffee.😳 That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a great July 4th people & whatever you do, don’t forget to LAFF IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman! 




“What’s another word for Thesaurus?” – Steven Wright

“Americans will put up with anything provided it doesn’t block traffic.” – Dan Rather
“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” – Sir Winston Churchill
“I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but I had all the wrong traits. They were looking for kids
who were trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean and reverent. Whereas I tended to be devious, fickle, obstructive, hostile,
impolite, mean, defiant, glum, extravagant, dirty, and sacrilegious.” –George Carlin
“When I was a kid getting to borrow the car was a big deal. Before he handed over the
keys, my dad always gave me a lecture. ‘Now I’m not giving you this car so you can screw
it up.’ Well, I said to myself, then I don’t want it.” –Louie Anderson

“You can’t believe how much hard work it is to con people into thinking that you’re productive
when you’re unemployed. Always thinking up things to tell them you’re going to do tomorrow,
having to exaggerate every minute of your nowhere day…it’s worse than having a job. At least
when you’re employed, when people ask about your day you can tell them to shut up
and mind their own business.” –Drew Carey 
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
As the woman was instructing the new maid on the great care required in handling certain valuable household objects. She pointed to the dining room and said with great satisfaction, “That table goes back to Louis the Fourteenth.” “Oh, that’s nothing,” the maid interjected. “My whole livingroom set goes back to Sears the fifteenth.”😱😁😎

Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “I pity your country ignorance from my heart.”
“And I despise your citified claptrap.”

Answer:   Tom Jones!
In this scene 18th century London resident Miss Western (Edith Evans) is visiting her country farmer brother, Squire Western (Hugh Griffith), and speaks to him from a second-floor balcony. She considers him an uncouth country bumpkin. He considers her a pretentious citified busybody. She says line one and he replies with line two. She also says, “Brother, as I am here to stay awhile I shall sign a peace treaty with you.” This hilarious comedy tells the story of Tom Jones (played as a young adult by a young Albert Finney), a child of unknown parentage who is raised as a gentleman in 18th century England. “Tom Jones” is based on English author Henry Fielding’s classic 1749 novel “The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling” and is one of my all-time favorites (the version with Albert Finney, Susannah York, and Hugh Griffith). 


Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Do you like to gamble, Eddie? Gamble money on pool games?”
