Smorgasbord Laughter is the Best Medicine – Hosts Debby Gies and Sally Cronin November 22nd 2022- Thanksgiving food and Students

Mine is a socio-political blog, more political than socio, and it is 90%+ a dark place filled with tales of corruption, violence, and the angst that exists ‘round the globe. But every now and then my mind acts as a lawman, saying, “Step back, hands over your head, step back slowly ma’am, away from the rabbit hole …” And when that happens, I go visit Sally and Debby over at Smorgasbord where I am sure to restore my balance and sense of humour. Their “Laughter is the Best Medicine” post today brought a chuckle from somewhere deep within me and I think it will do the same for you! Thank you, Sally & Debby! You’re lifesavers!

Jolly Hallowe’en Monday!!! 👻

Well, folks … it’s that day again.  Yep, you know what day I mean …

Oh yeah, and it’s also Monday, so Happy Hallowe’en Monday!  I said to nobody in particular a few days ago, “We don’t really need witches, goblins, ghosts and ghouls this Hallowe’en … we have Republicans!”  Yeah, I know … no politics allowed on Jolly Monday posts … sometimes I just can’t help myself.

Anyway, Joyful has some special Hallowe’en treats for us today, and then we’ll see what Jolly has dug up to start this week out with a smile, a chuckle, or perhaps even a laugh!


It may be Hallowe’en, which is the bigger holiday, but it is also National Knock-Knock Joke Day, and since I love knock-knock jokes, I thought I’d start out with just a few.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Luke.
Luke who?
Luke through the peephole and find out.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Honeydew.
Honeydew who?
Honeydew you wanna dance?

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Elly.
Elly who?
Elly-mentary, my dear Watson!

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Cash.
Cash who?
No thanks, I’ll have some peanuts.

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Spell.
Spell who?
Okay, fine. W-H-O.


Okay … enough of that!  Let’s move on to a few animal memes …


Jolly spent most of yesterday digging for funny cartoons for you guys …


And Joyful and Jolly worked together on collecting some funny memes …


Well, that brings us up to the pièce de résistance, the cute animal video!


Time sure does fly on Monday mornings, doesn’t it?  We’ve really enjoyed having you visit and hope that you’re leaving with a smile both on your face and in your heart.  These are tough times, and it helps if we can find things to smile about, so please be sure to share the smiles with others this week.  Keep safe and have a happy week!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Jolly Monday Before … HALLOWE’EN!!! 🎃

Good morning, fwiends!  It’s me, Jolly!  Joyful and Gwammie are in da kitchen finishing up some special tweats for you all this morning, so I get to start off da day!  We gots some fun stuff today to help you start out da week with a smile, I think!  Let’s head on over and see what Joyful and Gwammie have for us …

I hope you enjoy your Hallowe’en treats and now, let’s see what fun stuff we have in store, starting with just a few cute pictures …


Jolly?  Did you get some good ‘toons for us?


And maybe a few funny memes, too …


And now for the fun/cute animal video of the week!


Well, my friends, we’re sad to see you go, but we hope that we’ve managed to start your week out with a grin and a chuckle!  Keep safe and have a wonderful week ahead … and please do remember to share those smiles!  A smile can go a long way toward making somebody’s day brighter!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

Sometimes we just need to step back from the political scene, take a deep breath, and find a bit of humour in the world. Sally & Debby over at Smorgasboard NEVER fail to provide that bit of humour, and today is no exception. Thank you Sally & Debby for lightening our load and brightening our day!

Jolly “Fat Bear” Monday!

Good Monday morning, friends!  I hope you all had a relaxing and peaceful weekend and that you’re ready to face another week!  Mine was good … nothing exciting, but then these days I prefer ‘normal’ to ‘exciting’ anyway.  Joyful has been cooking up something in the kitchen this morning, so let’s grab a snack and go in search of some fun to bring smiles to start the week on the right foot … or the left foot … either one is good.


This is the 6th day in Fat Bear Week, which runs from October 5th thru October 11th.  Seems a bit odd to me that the week is from Wednesday thru Tuesday, but I guess perhaps bears have a different calendar than humans do!  If you want to know more about Fat Bear week, check out my post in 2018, or this article about this year’s contest.


Sock gone AWOL …

You know about those socks that sometimes go AWOL in the dryer, right?  They’ve been the brunt of jokes and the frustration of people for ages.  I found the solution long ago … all of my socks are the same colour (white) and the same brand, so there’s never a stray without a mate. Anyway … over at Phil’s Phun last week, there was a feature about those pesky stray socks and we found some humorous bits …


I always enjoy the music puns, though sometimes it takes me a while to figure them out …


And Jolly found us bunches of ‘toons this week …


Just a few memes we found funny or weird


And last, but never least, we cannot say farewell on a Monday without sharing a cute animal video!  I think you’re really gonna love this one!


We really hope that you’ve all enjoyed your visit on this Jolly Monday and that you’re leaving with a smile on your face and one in your heart as well.  Have a great week, and remember to share those beautiful smiles!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!

CAN Monday Be Jolly? Come See …

Good morning and welcome to …

Yes, once again that day has rolled around … the day you put on a suit or uniform or whatever your job requires, pack a lunch, and head out the door bright and early to earn yet another dollar or pound or peso.  But here at Filosofa’s Word, our goal is to dispel that gloom and doom, to ensure that as you head out the door, you do so with a smile on your face!

Since the weather is getting cooler out there, Joyful and I thought some nice warm soup might be a good way to start the day … but never fear, bacon-lovers … there’s plenty of bacon to go around too!  I actually like a bit of crumbled bacon atop my potato soup!  So, grab a snack and a hot drink, and then we’ll see if we can find some smiles and chuckles to start the week!


Speaking of coffee, we found some funny ‘toons and memes about that substance that keeps us from falling asleep at our desks (sometimes, anyway) …


Who doesn’t love some fun animal memes?


And now, Jolly tells me it’s time to get to the ‘toons he picked out for this week, so here we go!

No sooner had he taken the shot when the elephant suddenly charged him!


Gwammie … you forgot da memes I found …


And I guess that brings us to … a cute animal video, yes?  I think you’ll love seeing these baby deer …


Well, friends, I guess that’s a wrap for today.  We all have things we need to get done, but we hope we’ve helped start your week on the right foot, and that the rest of the week will be peaceful!  Keep safe, share those smiles, and have a wonderful week ahead.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Jolly Autumnal Monday

Good Monday morning, friends, Romans, countrymen!  Oh wait … do you sometimes waken in the morning and have to take a few minutes to figure out who you are, where you are, and what you’re doing here?  I think I’m not quite awake yet … happens a lot as I’ve gotten older!  Anyway, I am quite certain of the fact that today is Monday, the first one of autumn, and the last one in September.  See, I haven’t completely lost my mental acuity.  Joyful is off visiting ‘Uncle Woger’ today, and since Jolly isn’t allowed in the kitchen, I sent him out for donuts ‘n coffee for our morning snack.  No bacon today … sorry guys!  So grab a snack and then we’ve got some fun stuff for your Monday morning chuckles!

Dere’s more in da kitchen if you need more … just ask


How ’bout we start off with some music puns from over at Phil’s Phun?


And some funny signs …


And your favourite part of Jolly Monday … ‘TOONS!!!


Perhaps a few memes would be good for some laughs …


Well, my friends … NO GWAMMIE … You’s forgettin’ da animal video!!!

Oops!  You’re right … thanks for reminding me, Jolly!  What would Jolly Monday be without the cute critter video!!!  We thought you might enjoy seeing some baby lions this morning!


And now, friends, it’s time to get into gear and make this a great week!  We hope you found a few smiles and chuckles here this morning and we hope you have a safe and happy week ahead!  Please remember our friends in Florida who are battening down the hatches in preparation for Hurricane Ian that is expected soon.  Take care, Mary, Larry, Horty, Scottie and all our Floridian friends, and let us know you’re okay when you can.  We will be thinking of you.  Love ‘n hugs to all from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Smorgasbord Laughter is the Best Medicine – Hosts Debby Gies and Sally Cronin – ATM’s and Spaghetti

I was busy doing some major house chores this afternoon and literally FORGOT to finish the post I had started for this afternoon! Senility, I tell ya, is setting in here! Anyway, I figured we could all use a good laugh this evening, so naturally I turned to Sally & Debby’s Smorgasboard! Sit back and let the chuckles wash over you … Sally’s ‘marriage’ story made me nearly choke with laughter!

Jolly ‘N Joyful Monday!!!

So here we are back at Monday again, eh?  Well, we might as well make the best of it, don’t you think?  We’ve got some fun in store for you guys today, so go see what Joyful has on the table, then we’ll move on to some ‘toons ‘n memes ‘n cute critters ‘n stuff!


Thank you, Joyful … this is a lovely spread and I can’t wait to sink my fork into it!

I get a daily email from the National Day Calendar folk, and usually I just look at it, roll my eyes, and delete the email.  But today’s was too funny not to share!  Today is “Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day”.  Yep, you heard that right …

According to the website …

Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day on August 8th offers gardeners a way to rid themselves of extra produce. For some, this day offers a way to rid their garden of an overproducing squash plant.  Did you know that zucchini was a fruit? Well, if you’re a gardener, you know this fact already.  You also know that zucchini grows in abundance and is ready for harvest in August. Zucchini growers also know that one plant of zucchini allows you to share this wonderful treat!

Zucchini is also incredibly helpful with weight loss. The produce is low in calories, high in fiber, and full of water. As such, when you eat it, your tummy doesn’t feel empty. Hopefully, you are less likely to overeat. If your zucchini produces well, add it soups, salads, and baked goods.

When you receive a zucchini on your porch, savor the delicious squash.

Okaaaaayyy …


We have just a few animal memes we thought were funny …


And Jolly gets credit for finding today’s cartoons …


For the bacon lovers out there, we found these just for you!!!


And just a few memes to round things out …


Well, my friends … wha-what is it, Jolly?

Gwammie!  You forgot da cute animal video!

OH … so I did!  Well … let me see if I can find … oh yeah, here it is!  You will laugh watching the man trying to teach the goose to fly!!!


And as I was saying … the time has come for us all to get on with our business of the day, but I want you to know we really enjoyed spending this time with you!  We hope you have a great week and please, share the smiles … come back for more if you need to, for they’ll be here all week long!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly ‘n Joyful!
