Listening at the bedroom door one night whilst my son said his prayers I heard him say, “God bless Daddy and Mummy, Grandad and Grandma, Uncle Albert and goodbye to Rolf my dog”.

I thought it a little odd but forgot about it until the…

Smorgasbord Laughter is the Best Medicine – The Senior Team pass the the funnies along – Legal Shenanigans

Given the state of the world, we can all use a bit of a chuckle, but sometimes it’s really hard to find! Well, I found mine over at the Smorgasbord Blog earlier today — I even laughed! And then I thought that it was rather selfish of me to keep these chuckles for myself, so I decided to share them with you guys! Thanks, Sally et al!

Plus…How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?

These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place:

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?

WITNESS: He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’

ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?

WITNESS: My name is Susan!


ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?

WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.


ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?

WITNESS: July 18th.

ATTORNEY: What year?

WITNESS: Every year.


ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?

Jolly Monday — Funny Furries

Hey guys!  Come in out of the cold … I hear some of you got dumped on over the weekend … last night I heard that Chicago’s O’Hare Airport had canceled some 700 flights!  Luckily, I think it’s supposed to go north of us and land in Maine somewhere.  Mr. LePage deserves it!  So how was your weekend?

I had a really difficult time doing ‘funny’ last night, and even Jolly wasn’t much help.  All the humour in my usual ‘go-to’ sources seemed a bit macabre, like the guy who was trying to steal gasoline from a U-Haul and set himself and the U-Haul truck on fire.  Somehow … it just didn’t make me laugh.  So, instead of a variety of humour today, I am falling back on the one thing that always works, funny animals.  Jolly, by the way, is still in bed … I think perhaps he’s coming down with something.

Grab a snack and a nice hot cuppa java, and settle in for a bit of furry funnies before you set out to start the week off.

And let’s wrap up with a few jokes, shall we?



And I’m sorry, folks, but that’s all the funny I have in me for today.  Share a smile, a laugh, or even a hug today with a friend, a co-worker or a stranger, okay?  Keep warm, keep safe, and have a great week!!!Monday-smile-2

Just a Bit of a Laugh …

Andy Borowitz is a satirist who has written for The New Yorker since 1998.  In 2001, he created The Borowitz Report, a satirical news column that has millions of readers around the world, for which he won the first-ever National Press Club award for humor.  His column last Wednesday had me chuckling aloud, and since I sense you guys need a good chuckle or two, I share this with you only for its therapeutic value!

A Spot of Humour …

This morning I was desperate for a bit of humour, thoroughly in a blue funk over the state of the world, the state of my carpet, and the state of my mind.  I went just ambling through my stash of files and websites, thinking to start working on my next post.  As I mindlessly wandered through the vast network of ‘everything-you-never-wanted-to-know-about-anything’, I came across this video.  Ho-hum … oh well, might as well check it out … click … and I found myself suddenly with a smile on my face, chuckling mindlessly.  I just had to share it!
