Jolly Monday Sans Both Jolly & Joyful

Jolly and Joyful seem to have left the building today … I have no idea where they are for they didn’t even leave a note, but they aren’t here, meaning I have to do Jolly Monday all by myself and I’ve largely forgotten how.  However, since I cannot let you all go out into the cold, cruel world without starting your week with a warm drink, some humour, and some hugs, I shall give it the old college try.  Just don’t expect too much, okay?

Grab a snack, such as they are, and let’s try to find something funny in the news, shall we?

Ever-GivenBy now, you’ve all heard about the ship Ever Given that’s been blocking the Suez Canal since last Tuesday, right?  Yes, it’s still stuck, and I read that as a result, we can expect a new toilet paper shortage, so y’all might wanna stock up today!  But that’s not what this story is about.  This story is similar, but it’s about a 40-foot boat, not a 220,000-ton ship, and it’s blocking a Florida highway, not one of the world’s major waterways!


Turns out, the boat fell off a trailer, turned sideways like the Ever Given, and blocked multiple lanes of Interstate 10 in Crestview, Florida, for hours.  Unlike the Ever Given, however, this boat was finally moved by the Florida Highway Patrol.  Hmmm … maybe we should send the FHP to the Suez?

And since I’m quite literally lacking both Jolly and Joyful, let’s move on to some ‘toons …


And a few memes I found over at Phil’s place …


And last but not least, I found a cute animal video Joyful had picked out before leaving for parts unknown with Jolly, so I won’t have to disappoint you on that!

Let’s hope that Jolly ‘n Joyful find their way home soon, for this place is like a tomb without them and I really miss the smiles they bring me daily.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa (and the missing miscreants Jolly ‘n Joyful)!

    • Glad you enjoyed the bit of humour! That header image is the famous (and now dead) Grumpy Cat! Did you hear of him over there? Cats are indeed a strange breed … but then, so are humans! You have a nice day also, Michael, though yours is by now almost over.

      • Yes, here it actually is 10 p.m., and on TV they are only discussing about the failures the officials had made. Not about how we can get this vaccines, as fast as possible. We will have another lockdown, and in September a very horrible election to the Bundestag. ;-( Have a beautiful rest of the day, Jill!

        • Sigh. Yep, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Here, the news is already focused on the 2024 election! Heck, I haven’t recovered from the last one 4 months ago and they want me to start thinking about the next in 44 months??? 🙄

          • Lol – Thats really demotivating. Here we actually are hearing very less about the elections in September. We should get a super lockdown, as never before. This at least means nothing will change (till Christmas?????)

            • It truly is demotivating … and depressing to think that for the next 44 months we are going to have to hear the campaign rhetoric over and over and over. It used to be campaigns only lasted a few months, but now it’s an entire four years! Why a super lockdown? Have new cases surged that much? Is the vaccine rollout not going well?
