Saturday Surprise — Tidbits of Humour

I admit to being somewhat depleted tonight as I sit down to do this Saturday Surprise post, so I thought I’d go with a hodgepodge of humorous tidbits … I think we could all use a laugh right about now, yes?

Jeff Foxworthy, famous for his “You Might Be a Redneck If …” one-liners, often brings a chuckle.  I liked the first two best.foxworthy-jokes.png

I haven’t shared any of those funny signs for a few months … this first one caught my eye and since it made me laugh, I thought it would bring a chuckle from you also.


I always like a little quip … a short joke with a quick punch …


Q: What did one cannibal say to the other while they were eating a clown?

A: “Does this taste funny to you?”


Q: Why did the chewing gum cross the road?

A: He was stuck to the chicken’s foot.


Little girl: “Why does your son say, ‘Cluck, cluck, cluck?'”

Mother: “Because he thinks he’s a chicken.”

Little girl: “Why don’t you tell him he’s not a chicken?”

Mother: “We need the eggs.”

Of course there must be some funny animal memes, right?


A few ‘toons …


I’m sorry to cut this short, folks, but I truly am running on fumes, and anyway … it’s the WEEKEND, and a long, 3-day weekend at that!!!  I know you’ve got all sorts of fun planned, yes?  So do I!!!  I’m going to wrestle a chair from my upstairs bedroom to the downstairs living room, and vacuum the 15-step staircase!  Bet you’re jealous, huh?  You’re more than welcome to come help!  Have a wonderful holiday weekend and keep safe, my friends!

  1. Enjoy the break. I will do the same. How pathetic that our joke President is not willing to be in America on Memorial Day, In road trip news, at a local diner in N.C. I, I overheard country people complaining that our stock market is acting irregularly.

    • Thanks! Gee, golly gosh, I wonder what ever would be making the financial markets would be erratic? I wonder … could it possibly be a president who has imposed mega-tariffs on most all of our biggest trading partners? Or who is taunting Iran hoping, it would seem, to start a war? Sigh. People amaze me … and not necessarily in a good way.

  2. Is some humour sick because it makes a person want to vomit? Or is it considered sick because the “humourist” has no humour in them?
    Not to worry, Jill, I am not saying you traffick much in sick humour, but occasionally. Then other times, along comes a gem like “Please behave like animals!” portrays a truism. If people behaved like animals we would not be in the messes we find ourselves in.

    • Yeah, I particularly liked that one. I went for a walk recently and was sickened by the trash people throw on the ground, when there’s a trash can not 10 feet away! I would say people are pigs, but that would insult piggies.


        • Not much indeed, but that’s what I’ve been saying for a long time now. Animals kill only for food, or when they feel threatened. Ever hear of an animal killing another because he didn’t like the others’ fur colour? No. And animals don’t do religion, so no reason for prejudice there. Their motives are pure. Humans? Not so much.


          • Exactly, though I saw an ant war once, that happened to be red vs black. Social animals are selfish, as groups. I’ve read tales of warring chimpanzees. Humans? Our histories are war to war to war…

              • I don’t think anyone won the ant war. After a couple days worker ants cleaned up the dead soldiers, and took the corpses back to their respective ant hills. The disputed area seemed to be abandoned by both sides. Then we moved away, so I have no idea of the long term effects on either side.

                • Heh heh … they were probably just doing it for show … impress those big monstrous people who stand looking down at us and stomp their feet, killing hundreds in a single stomp. We’ll show ’em how tough we are … let’s stage an all-out battle!


                  • Some people might actually think that, cuz everything in life is for their entertainment. But no, this war was real, but probably both sides realized they were just wasting their soldiers, something no human general would ever even think of. Because no human general would ever feel the death of each and every soldier as a queen ant would. Maybe we do have something to learn from the ants…

    • As a person with 3 litter boxes that are scooped thrice daily, I fully agree with you! They actually do make some sort of adapter that turns a toilet into a kittie-pottie, but … ours would be far too stubborn to adapt to that! Have a good weekend, my friend!
