Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….

Panicking when her toddler swallowed a tiny magnet; my sister, Betty, rushed him

to the emergency room. “He’ll be fine,” the doctor promised her. “The magnet should pass through his system in a day or two.” “How will I be sure?” she pressed. “Well,” the doctor suggested, “you could stick him on the refrigerator.

When he falls off, you’ll know.” 😱😁😎 



Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “Coffee and cigarettes, that’s like the breakfast of champions.”              

Answer:   Blue in the Face!
“Blue in the Face” starred Harvey Keitel, Michael J. Fox and Lily Tomlin. Actor Jim Jarmusch, who plays a character named Bob (no last name), makes this funny, albeit incorrect statement while smoking a cigarette and drinking his morning coffee. He had been discussing why he loves cigarettes and is sitting around with a group of friend who are all sitting around doing the same thing. This part of the dialogue ends and jumps quickly to Paris in the springtime. Much of the dialogue in this feature was ad-libbed.

Friday’s Quizzler is….

Justin Case and Auntie Bellum are fellow con artists who deliver coded messages to each other to communicate. Recently Auntie Bellum was put in jail for stealing a rare and expensive diamond. Only a few days after this, Justin Case sent her a friendly letter asking her how she was. On the inside of the envelope of the letter, he hid a code. Yesterday, Auntie Bellum escaped and left the envelope and the letter inside the jail cell. The police did some research and found the code on the inside of the envelope, but they haven’t been able to crack it. Could you help the police find out what the message is?

This is the code:


Answer:  The message was “loose bricks in left wall.” The message was put backward with words related to time in between.

This is how the message looks when separated:
ll watch awtfe clock lnisk sundial cirbe timer sool
If you take out watch, clock, sundial, and timer, this is what is left:
Look at this backwards and this is what you have:
loose bricks in left wall

Auntie Bellum took out the bricks and escaped in the night. Then, she put the bricks back where they were.

Monday’s Quizzler is…….

A Tom Swifty is a play on words. Tom speaks, and the way he is said to speak is a pun – both meanings are relevant.
e.g. “I love hot dogs”, Tom said frankly. “Frank” connects how he spoke and the hot dog! [Frankfurter!]

The Tom Swifty can also use a phrase or homophone.
e.g. “You didn’t order enough carpet”, said Tom with a cold stare.
“Cold stare” expresses his annoyance and suggests uncarpeted stairs!

Choose one of the listed words or phrases to fill each gap.

** CLUES **
1. “No, don’t come in. I’m changing!” said Tom _____.

2. “This is a grave situation”, said Tom, _____.

3. “Hooray! The radio reception is clear again”, said Tom _____.

4. “So? Buy a proper pencil sharpener!” said Tom _____.

5. “I’m going to be head of the CIA in a few years”, said Tom _____.

bluntly, fondly, graciously, aspiringly, hopefully, ecstatically, in fun, briefly, cryptically, cautiously

** YOUR TURN! **
Think of a better Tom Swifty for one of Tom’s statements in the teaser, and maybe write it as a comment.
