Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A man and his friend were exiting a drugstore and at the front door there was a scale.
“Look, a scale,” the man said to his friend. “Let’s see how my new diet is working out.”
He stepped on the scale.
“I can’t believe it!” he said as he read the result. “I’ve been on this diet for two weeks
but the scale says I’m heaver than I was before! How can that be?”
He pondered this as he stepped off the scale, then had a thought. He took off his jacket
and handed it to his friend. “Here, hold my jacket,” he said.
The friend took the jacket as the man stepped back on the scale.
Not much change.
“Here,” he said as he handed his purchase from the drugstore to his friend.
“Hold my Twinkies too.” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“But if he is to die, then let him die and decrease the surplus population.”
“You use my own words against me.”
Answer: A Christmas Carol!
In this scene Ebenezer Scrooge (George C. Scott) and the Ghost of Christmas Present (Edward Woodward) are observing (both unseen and unheard) the Christmas dinner of the Bob Cratchit family. When Scrooge asks if their crippled son Tiny Tim will get better, the Ghost says he sees an empty space at the table in the future and mockingly adds line one. Scrooge winces and replies with line two, remembering his words to solicitors seeking aid for the poor. This wonderful holiday movie is based on a classic short story by English author Charles Dickens. A miserly old man, who considers Christmas humbug, is taught the true meaning and spirit of the season by three ghosts who show him his own past and present and what the future holds for him if he doesn’t change his ways. There have been numerous versions of this movie made over the years. My favorite (of the ones I’ve seen) is this one (with George C. Scott as Scrooge).
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….
I represent love.
I’m the daughter of Heaven and Sea.
You may find me in the sky above,
And many envy my beauty.
My love belongs to fire,
But if I said I was true to him
I would be a liar,
But I have no shame for my whims.
My son taught many to love.
To me the only earthly items of worth
Are myrtle, sparrow, swan, and dove.
And no one remembers my birth.
ANSWER: The goddess Venus.
Line 1: She represents love, fertility, and beauty.

Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
I’m a ten-letter word, but when I am heard,
I have only four, not one letter more.
My first two sounds are neat; a kind of sheet,
That starts with spread, not the kind on a bed.
Of my sounds, the third is what will be heard,
alphabetically, in the middle of modus operandi.
If you want to hear more, then like the shore,
I end at the sea, that’s a hint, you see.
What word am I?
