Friday Funnies

I have no more left after this lot. I will have to find something new. I have a feeling I've used some of these before. No matter.

Poor old pouffe who self immolated.


Don't I know this one.


And I am entertained by reading this. I am worse.


I am sure I've used this one before. I think it is quite funny.


Kiddies, remember you spelling lessons, i before e except after c.


Oh that I had such a wise mother.


I downloaded this in December 2021. Amazing.



Needs verification.

Do you have a cat who would look so cross?


Good on ya for complaining. The same happens to me.


I'll give this one a miss.


They did indeed do such things. They are now dead. Tell you anything?


Who's he?


This is perhaps my favourite.

  1. Thanks for the much needed smiles. My mother did indeed teach me all of those things. Without exception.

  4. With the I before E rule, even Albert Einstein got it wrong TWICE. I particularly like the ;fat tattooed lady' one; never was a truer word written.

    1. Cro, to fail once is forgivable, to fail twice is not. A few such ladies around Brighton?

  7. I thought it was only Irish mothers who gave that advice -
    come over our way if you want to see ‘fat tattooed ladies’ - we seem to have an abundance of them.

    1. Cathy, I'll visit if only if they are wearing track suit pants in public.

    1. Steve, the old pouffe is funny and probably made up.

  9. These are so good, and your comments make them even better. My favourites are the first and the last. As for the garbage man earnings, in the 1980s the employees who swept the floor at the Michelin plants here earned about double what any other similarly employed person could earn in Nova Scotia. And that was without any student loans to repay because the job required only high school graduation. And it was, I believe, without the benefit of a union. I'm not sure where garbage collectors land on the scale, then or now.

    1. Jenny, the floor sweeper seems to be a real anomaly, especially without a union. I am not sure that garbage collectors generally earn much money.
