    Here are some Friday funnies I found in my inbox last Friday:

    "A new survey reported that 40 percent of people think it's a good idea to get engaged on Valentines Day. The other 60 percent were men." -Conan O'Brien


    I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.


    An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy, a rather rare occurrence in Israel, to say the least.

    After examining it, he called the curator of the Israel museum in Jerusalem.

    "I've just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.

    To which the curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out."

    A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. "You were right about both the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?"

    "Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000 Shekels on Goliath.'"


    A young Nun who worked for a local home health care agency was out making her rounds when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, there was a gas station just one block away. She walked to the station to borrow a can with enough gas to start the car and drive to the station for a fill up.

    The attendant regretfully told her that the only gas can he loaned had just been loaned out, but if she would care to wait he was sure it would be back shortly. Since the nun was on her way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car.

    After looking through her car for something to carry to the station to fill with gas, she spotted a bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, she carried it to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried it back to her car.

    As she was pouring the gas into the tank of her car, two men watched her from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, "I know that the Lord turned water into wine, but if that car starts, I'm going to church every Sunday for the rest of my life."


    If you can start the day without caffeine,
    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

    If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

    If you can conquer tension without medical help,
    If you can relax without alcohol,

    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, ...Then You Are Probably

    The Family Dog!


    That was a lovely story and I have one of my own that might make you smile too. Our 6year old grandson has just finished prep and although he can spell a lot of words correctly he often gets the right letters but in the wrong order. Consequently his Christmas wish list began, "Dear Satan,..."
    One for his 21st don't you think?


    Harry is at his local discussing nicknames with his mates---George has started calling his wife “Harvey Norman†he says..

    Why is that??? “No interest for 18 monthsâ€


    There were two rednecks walking toward each other down the street. One of them was carrying a sack. When they met up, the other redneck asked, "Whatcha got in that there sack?"

    The redneck with the sack replied, "Just some chickens." The other redneck said, "If I guess how many chickens are in that there sack, can I have one?"

    The redneck with he sack answered, "I'll give ya both of them if you get it right."

    So, the other redneck thought and thought, and he finally said, "Five?"


    Wife comes home late at night and quietly opens the door to her bedroom.

    From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two.

    She reaches for a Baseball Bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can. Once she's done, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink.

    As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.

    "Hi Darling", he says, "Your parents have come to visit us, so l let them stay in our bedroom. Hope you said Hello to them.."

    And more Friday funnies:

    Three women go down to Mexico one night to celebrate college graduation. They got drunk, and woke up in jail, only to find that they are to be executed in the morning, though none of them can remember what they did the night before.

    The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if she has any last words. She says, "I just graduated from
    Trinity Bible College and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent." They throw the switch and nothing happens. They all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for forgiveness, and release her.

    The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words. "I just graduated from the University of Kentucky School of Law, and I believe in the power of Justice to intervene on the behalf of the innocent."
    They throw the switch and again, nothing happens. Again, they all immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness, and release her.

    The last one, a blonde (you knew it), is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm from the University of Tennessee and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya right now, ya'll ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't plug that thing in."


    A backwoodsman was making his first visit to a city hospital where his teenage son was about to have an operation. Watching the doctor's every move, he asked, "What's that?"

    The doctor explained, "This is an anesthetic. After he gets this he won't know a thing."

    "Save your time, Doc," exclaimed the man. "He don't know nothing now."


    There were two fish in a tank. One of them said to the other: "How do you drive this thing?"


    Q: What do you get when you cross a lobster with a baseball player?

    A: A pinch hitter.

    Q: What do you get when you cross a stray cat with a crocodile?

    A: An alley gator.

    Q: Where do cows go on their first date?

    A: To the moo-vies.

    Q: Why did the talking bird join the air force?

    A: He wanted to be a parrot-trooper.

    Okay, this is one extremely fascinating blog. Random photos from the 80's and 90's. Or are they?

    Did we just become Reader's Digest?

    How much would (did) it cost to build the Death Star?

    "Oh, and the cost of the steel alone? At 2012 prices, about $8,100,000,000,000,000. Or roughly 13,000 times the world’s GDP."

    Probably one of the nerdiest, awesome conversations I've read.
