q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution—these can lift at a
colossal humbug—push it a little—weaken it a little, century by century,
but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the
assault of laughter nothing can stand. MARK TWAIN
If you can laugh in the face of
adversity, you’re bullet-proof.
Always laugh when you can.
It is cheap medicine.
Trouble knocked at the door, but,
hearing laughter, hurried away.
The person who has a sense of humor is not just more
relaxed in the face of a potentially stressful situation,
but is more flexible in his approach. JOHN MORREALL
G u a r a n t e e d to Make You Laugh!
A man is flying in a hot air balloon and he soon realizes that he’s completely lost.
So he starts reducing height and then he suddenly spots a man down below. He
lowers the balloon a little further and then shouts: “Excuse me sir I was wondering,
can you tell me where I am? I seem to be lost.“ Taken by surprise, the man looks up
and replies “Yeah, that’s easy. You’re in a hot air balloon, hovering about 25 feet above this field.“
“You must work in IT. I’m guessing you work as a programmer?” says the balloonist.
“I do and yes, I am,” replies the man, looking a little surprised, “How did you guess?“
“Well” says the balloonist, “everything you’ve told me is technically correct but it’s of no actual use to anyone.“ The programmer smiles and then says, “Ah, you must be the CEO in a business.“
“Yes, I am” replies the balloonist, “but how could you know that?“
“That’s easy,” says the programmer. “You don’t know where you are or where you’re
going but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were
before we met but now it’s my fault.“ 😁😎
Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“I’m making waffles!”
The correct answer is of course Donkey in the movie ‘Shrek’ The full quote, said to Shrek, the ogre is, ‘We’ll stay up late swapping manly stories, and in the morning, I’m making waffles!’ Not surprisingly, Shrek wasn’t impressed. This film was released in 2001 and it won the very first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in the same year. The story takes viewers to a fairy tale setting where an ‘evil’ ogre, Shrek, must save and protect Princess Fiona and deliver her to the antagonist, Lord Farquaad. In the particular scene from which the quote is pulled, Shrek has saved Donkey early on in the movie, and Donkey is looking to Shrek to be his friend. When Shrek decides to let him come to his swamp, Donkey has plans to settle right in.

This teaser is based on ‘funny’ alternative definitions a word could have if you broke the word up into its syllables and treated the syllables as words in themselves. I will provide a list of words and a list of definitions; it is your job to match them up.
They are meant to be a bit light hearted and may not have perfect pronunciation so work the words in your head a bit. Having the definitions should provide help in this regard. Also note that sometimes the ‘new word’ syllables may not only be using one syllable in the word.
An example would be:
Word: Contemplate “Con template”: A stencil that criminals are made from.
What trees do in the spring
What the owner of a seafood store does
A clumsy ophthalmologist
How golfers create divots
What a bullfighter tries to do
