Jolly Monday — This ‘n That!

woman-coffeeWha … What???  Is it Monday again … already???  I knew there was something evil about Monday … it rolls around too quickly.  But, I’m happy to see you, my friends, so there is an upside to the day.  Hold on just a sec while I bring out some treats and make a fresh pot of coffee … I’m a little ‘off’ today because one of our special friends is missing.

There, now … that’s better.  So, how was your weekend?  Mine was okay … we went out for a bit Saturday and it poured rain the entire day, then on Sunday the sun was out, humidity finally gone and I went for a bit of a walk.  I’m not able to do the 4 miles I was doing last summer, though, and that’s rather got me bummed, but I’ll work back up to it.  Well, I know you all have schedules to keep, so let’s find some things to make us smile before you put your noses to the proverbial grindstone.  I’ve got just a few short tidbits for you today.

I actually laughed at this video.  It happened at the toll plaza in Kanpur, Uttar Pardesh, India when a car pulled up to the toll booth and … well, see for yourself …

Police said the monkey is believed to be a pet that was trained to steal by its owner. The primate took the equivalent of about $72, officials said.

Imagine waking up one morning, opening your front door, and finding … a bowl of mashed potatoes on your front porch.  mashed-potatoes-1This is what the people in the Belhaven neighbourhood of Jackson, Mississippi, were going through last month.  The residents of this neighborhood are no stranger to funky things.  According to one neighbor, Jordan Lewis …

“This neighborhood does a lot of quirky things. We decorate road signs, we put Christmas trees in our potholes, so it’s not surprising at all. That’s why I love this neighborhood because they do so many strange things, but it’s definitely one of the weirdest things I’ve seen since living in Jackson.  They’ve found it on their mailboxes on their cars. So, we don’t know if someone is just playing a prank or if someone just had a lot of leftovers and decided to share.”

mashed-potatoes-2Other comments included …

“Whoever was behind the mashed potato mystery was driving all over Belhaven, putting several houses and even streets in between his vehicle.”

“I got up and was headed to work at seven o’clock and there was just a Styrofoam bowl of mashed potatoes on the doorsteps right there.  Some people were thinking maybe the mashed potatoes were poisoned to kill animals. I didn’t taste it. I have a three-second rule so I didn’t touch it but some people were worried.”

And my favourite …

“I hope they just keep doing stuff like this, I know I wonder what they’ll do next. Like, a whole Thanksgiving meal?”


Ever try your hand at throwing a boomerang?  I haven’t … heck, I had enough trouble learning to throw a Frisbee, and I’ve seen those cartoons where a guy throws a boomerang and it comes back and knocks him silly!  No thanks!  But here’s a short clip by a guy who really makes it look easy as 1-2-3 …

I think even I could get the hang of that!





A lawyer is standing in a long line at the box office. Suddenly, he feels a pair of hands kneading his shoulders, back, and neck. The lawyer turns around.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?”
“I’m a chiropractor, and I’m just keeping in practice while I’m waiting in line.”
“Well, I’m a lawyer, but you don’t see me screwing the guy in front of me, do you?”



A blonde goes to work in tears. Her boss asks, “What’s wrong?”

She says, “My mom died.”

He told her to go home, but she said, “No, I’ll be fine.”

Later that day, her boss finds her crying again. He says, “What’s wrong?”

She replies, “I just talked to my sister, and her mom died, too!”


And for a grand finale … I give you a funny video about Scaredy Cats

jollyTh-th-that’s all for today folks!  Have a great week, and please share a smile and a kind word with those who seem to need one.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa and Jolly!

    Wow! Look at those cats go!
    Love the bear joke too…..reminds me of an old one:
    A couple go into a bar and see a gorilla sitting in the corner.
    ‘What does he drink?’ one asks the bar tender
    ‘Anything he wants,’

    • Ha ha … I usually don’t do blonde jokes, as I don’t wish to be demeaning to any, but every now and then one crosses my path that is just too funny to leave alone. Glad you liked it!


  2. Blonde jokes, I thought they were passe? They can’t help being the way they are…
    Scaredy cat videos, being promoted by a cat lover?
    But Maxine was in fine form, and the puppy returning the boomerang was too.

    • Heh heh … I try to avoid the blonde jokes, but every now and then one comes my way that I just cannot resist. I did, admittedly, feel rather bad for a few of the cats, but it was still humorous.

    When I was a kid, a relative brought a heavy wooden Boomerang (the real killing machine) as a gift from Australia for my Father. Hardly ornament material, it was put away in storage until yours truly found it! I took it into the garden to try it out. It didn’t take much of a throw to send it winging over neighbourhood fences to disappear behind mature trees. My mother, outraged sent me to find it. I walked around the block and asked at six houses before I found it, (to the bemusement of the home owner) buried into a shrub. Fortunately, it didn’t kill anything. It was hidden away from me by by mother and I never ever saw it again. The thing was huge, with a bevelled edge. If it had hit anyone… The consequences would have severe. The smaller boomerangs that they use for competition (like in the video) are tiny by comparison. 😉
