Friday’s Jokes, Quotes, Quizzlers and Teases!


Here’s The Story….
I have changed my system for labeling homemade freezer meals. I used to carefully
note in large clear letters, “Meatloaf” or “Pot Roast” or “Steak and Vegetables or “Chicken and Dumplings” or “Beef Pot Pie.” However, I used to get frustrated when I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner because he never asked for any of those things. So, I decided to stock the freezer with what he really likes. If you look in my freezer now, you’ll see a whole new set of labels. You’ll find dinners with neat little tags that say: “Whatever,” “Anything,” “I Don’t Know,” “I Don’t Care,” “Something Good,” or “Food.” My frustration is now reduced because no matter what my husband replies when I ask him what he wants for dinner, I know that it is there waiting. 😳

That’s my Story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND! people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“It is Fleet Week here in New York City. Over 4,000 service members come to New York City
during Fleet Week. So if you see a lot of people happy to be off a giant ship, they’re either
sailors or they just got off a Carnival Cruise.” -Jimmy Fallon

“According to a new study, there have been more deaths this year from selfie-related
incidents than there have been from shark attacks. Good.” -Seth Meyers

“The electronics company LG identified a new phenomenon called low-battery anxiety. People
become nervous, distracted, and frustrated when their phones are about to die. If you are not
familiar with low-battery anxiety, it’s a real condition that primarily affects
people with no actual problems.” -James Corden

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
In honor of Memorial Day, the teacher I worked with read the Constitution
to her third-grade class. After reading “We the people,” she paused to ask
the children what they thought that meant.
One boy raised his hand and asked, “Is that like ‘We da bomb?'” 😳

Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Something went wrong, Seth. When you went through, something went wrong.”

Answer: The Fly!
David Cronenberg’s fine remake of the 1958 classic (which starred Vincent Price and David/Al Hedison) featured a wonderful performance by a very buff Jeff Goldblum as the brilliant but ultimately doomed scientist Seth Brundle, and introduced us to the tagline “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” The film picked up the Oscar for Best Makeup (its only nomination), courtesy of Chris Walas (“Gremlins”), and was honored with Saturn, BAFTA and Hugo nominations and wins as well. Besides Goldblum and Davis, “The Fly” also starred John Getz, with a cameo by Cronenberg as a gynecologist.

Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Tell me, Inspector, ‘Signor Phantom’, all those robberies. How did you ever manage it?”

Thursday’s Quizzler is….​
You see me often ladies,
For I am a part of your life.
I sometimes bother babies
But prefer to cause adults strife.
My looks are a sign of your personality.
My strength cannot measure up to yours.
With most people I am there for eternity.
Onto me, water often pours.
Many look to me with pride,
While others wish to change me.
Drifting slowly, my time I bide
Waiting for you to see
That I am just a thing you’re given,
Not something very important.
For I have always been and will forever be dead.

Answer: Hair.
It often gets in your face (at least it does to girls).
Some babies are born with it, some are not.
You wash your hair often, and get it changed just as much.
This may sound a little too scientific, but hair is made of dead cells, just like your upper layer of skin.

Friday’s Quizzler is…….
Grammar Manor once again provided the perfect backdrop for the annual Punctuation Ball, hosted by Lord Charles of Colon and his dainty wife Sandra of Semicolon. Herbert Hash conducted the large brass band who were playing a slow song as the assembled punctuation marks danced serif in serif.

The evening, as it did in the years before, again was filled with a sense of glorious opulence and elegance which the punctuation marks would remember fondly. However, at the stroke of midnight this atmosphere was shattered as the many lights in the ballroom went out. Everything was submerged into darkness in an instant.

There was much commotion as the guests tried to work out what had happened. After a few moments, Quentin Question Mark found the switch and restored light to the room – and found Lord Charles in the middle of the dance floor, lying in a pool of blood. The distraught party guests called in the police to investigate, and the force sent their best man: Sergeant Arthur A. Ampersand.

Sergeant Ampersand surveyed the scene and spoke to the guests before drawing up a list of his top five murder suspects:

  • Alan the Asterisk
  • Carlos Comma
  • Edward Ellipsis
  • Percy Parentheses
  • Trevor Tilde

“I have followed all necessary leads to find out who murdered Lord Charles,” said Sergeant Ampersand, “and I conclude that it’s a mystery!” Before the guests could comment, Sergeant Ampersand checked his notes and arrested the culprit.

Who murdered Lord Charles?
