Now something from Sally’s Joke book archives….

Stud Fees

Farmer Dan got into his car, drove to the neighbouring farm and knocked at the door. A young boy, Eddie, aged about 10, opened the door.

‘Is yer Dad home?’ Dan demanded.

‘No, sir, he ain’t,’ Eddie replied. ‘He went into town.’

‘Well, then,’ inquired Dan, ‘is yer Mum here?’

‘No, sir, she ain’t here neither. She went into town…

Da ‘Toons Tell Da Story!

Monday afternoon seems like just about as good a time as any for a bit of political humour, don’t you think?  I’ve been collecting political cartoons for the past week or so and it’s time to clean out the file and share some of them!  Mind you that you have to consider the broader definition of the word “humour” here, for it’s a darker humour than, say, a Pickles cartoon or Charlie Brown & Snoopy, but the political cartoonists have an innate understanding of what is happening in our world, and the talent to reduce a situation into a single image.

Look closely at the images in the letters on this one

Dr. Caitlin Bernard, Indiana law, abortion, 10-year old, rape victim, political cartoon

Putin, Lukashenko, nucleau weapons, Belarus, Russia, Ukrains Warm, political cartoon

🌈 Jolly Pride Monday! 🌈

Good morning, friends!  How was your weekend?  It was so hot here that I happily stayed in all weekend .. the temps were in the 90-degree range (F) with humidity of around 85% … not conducive to being able to breathe!   In honour of the first Monday in Pride Month, Joyful has cooked up some very colourful goodies for us this morning, so let’s go see what’s on the buffet table, and then Jolly has some things to help us start the week with a smile …

I always think it’s fun to start with a few cute critter pictures, don’t you?

Jolly has been collecting some more of those funny signs you see now and then …

And now for our weekly selection of ‘toons!!!

And just a few funny memes we happened across …

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … the funny animal video!  I hope you like this one … it really made me laugh!

Well, friends … yep, it’s about that time again … time to pick up the briefcases, don the hard hats and head out to earn a living.  Unless you’re lucky, like me, and already put in your 50 years or so and lived to tell about it!  We’re glad you were able to join us this morning and we hope you have a safe and happy week ahead!  And remember to share those smiles this week … there will be a basketful of smiles by the door in case you want to grab a few extras just in case!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!!!

Enemies of the Russian State

Poor Clay Jones … he has been inadvertantly left off of Putin’s “Enemies List” and he’s a bit down in the dumps about it, understandably. Perhaps ol’ Vlad never reads the political cartoons … probably can’t understand the ‘subtle’ humour, eh? Anyway … here’s what Clay has to say about it all …


I’m sad about not winning recognition this year. No, I’m not talking about my failure to even place in any journalism awards for 2022 (what do they know anyway, right?). I’m talking about failing to make Vladimir Putin’s enemy list.

At first, you might think I’m crazy. Why should I make Putin’s enemy list? I’m not sending drones to attack the Kremlin or Putin’s love pad. It’s not like I am at physical war with Russia or have any input on U.S. policy on the nation. It’s not like I can levy sanctions on Vladimir Putin. But when you see a lot of the names among the 500 Americans on the list, I have every right to be on it.

There are names that make sense, like Senior Director of Defense Affairs of the National Security Council Cara Abercrombie, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Charles Brown Jr…

The Pick O’ The ‘Toons!!!

Well, the news as I write this tonight is that Kevin McCarthy and President Biden have reached an agreement to raise the debt ceiling until after next year’s elections, each side doing a bit of give-and-take.  Don’t get too excited, though … the bill isn’t completely written yet, then it goes to the House, possibly as early as this morning, and they will have until probably Wednesday to peruse it and decide whether to vote ‘yea’ or ‘nay’.  Since the House members are on leave due to the holiday, it may take them longer.  Then, if it passes the House, it goes to the Senate and must pass there, too … not as easy a task as you might think.  And then, it goes back to President Biden for signature.  All of this must happen prior to June 5th, a week from Monday, in order to avoid defaulting on our debt.  Will it?  I have doubts that it will go smoothly, but I suspect that like the annual budget negotiations, it will be resolved at the 11th hour.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, I have a few political cartoons that I need to share, and now seems as good a time as any!  Be sure to check out the very last one about Josh Hawley — it’s a hoot!!!

I was curious about that last one … I had no idea he had written a book, so I did some digging.  Josh Hawley has, indeed, written a book titled … wait for it … Manhood: The Masculine Virtues America Needs

Josh Hawley, the ‘man’ who fist-pumped the rioters from behind a safe fence, then ran for his life once they breached the Capitol!  🤣🤣🤣🤣

Jolly Picnic Monday!!!

Good Monday morning, dear friends!   Did you have a wonderful weekend and now I bet you can hardly wait to get back to work, back to the weekly routine!  Our weekend was quieter than usual, for daughter Chris was in Tennessee at a band competition.  Her band took 3rd place overall, and the drum corps, of which she is part, won 1st place, so she was pretty chuffed!  Goose and I, as usual, had a quieter-than-usual weekend, for Chris is the noisy one of our bunch!  Goose and I sometimes forget to even speak to each other for hours on end!  I did manage to watch Judgement at Nuremberg — all 3 hours and 10 minutes in one sitting and didn’t fall asleep a single time!  I’ve had that on my TBW list for years and finally can cross it off.  Well worth watching, if you haven’t seen it, and I thought both Spencer Tracy and Burt Lancaster were brilliant!

Well, since it seems that warm weather is going to stick around for a while, Joyful thought it would be nice if we had a picnic today, so she has prepared some fine picnic-type foods for your snacking pleasure!  So … grab a snack and let’s go see what fun stuff we have to start this week off, shall we?

Let’s get started with a few animal memes, ‘k?

And next up … a few phunny puns!

Yes, yes … of course it’s time for da ‘toons now!!!

Jolly has been collecting some fun facts over at Phil’s Phun for several weeks now and we keep forgetting to share them with you, so here are just a few …

And at long last, the moment you’ve all been waiting for … the cute/funny critter video!  I fell in love with this dog at first sight … and the dude ain’t half bad looking, either 😉

Well, my friends, we’re sad to see our time together come to an end, but there’s always next Monday!  We hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and found something to help you start the week with a smile or a chuckle.  And don’t forget to share those smiles … sometimes that’s all it takes to brighten someone’s day.  Keep safe and have a wonderful week ahead.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

‘Toons, ‘Toons, ‘Toons!!!

As always, the politics of the day are keeping the cartoonists busy, busy, busy!!!  While the situations may be dark and dreary, the cartoonists know how to brighten them up, to explain a situation with just a drip of humour.  So, without further ado, I give you some of the best political cartoons I’ve seen over the past week or so.

This last one isn’t a cartoon, but I still thought it fit in well!

Debby’s latest post in her series Spiritual Awareness: Timing – of people and events in our lives

Now something from Sally’s Joke book archives….


One day while he was at the track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.

Lo and behold, that horse — a very long shot — won the race.
