Because we need a laugh … or at least I do!

Probably like everyone else, people send me jokes. I love jokes, as long as they aren’t offensive or mean-spirited and I collect them. When I have enough, they becomes a post. Like this. So, if you have something you think is hilarious, send it to me. I’ll save it and when there’s enough to fill a page nicely, up it goes and we can all enjoy a good laugh. If it’s something you made yourself, make sure to sign it.

Send them to and stick “Joke” somewhere in the subject line so I won’t think it’s spam. I can’t, however make promises for Google. They think everything is spam … except spam.Bob-Mankoff-cartoon_660

No moment is more painful than the moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

Does anyone know how to fold a fitted sheet? If you do, will you let me know the secret?

GodIsFunnyBad decisions make great stories. If we didn’t make dumb choices, we wouldn’t have great anecdotes. I think that’s what we call a silver lining.

Can we agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-ray? I can’t redo my collections again. I replaced records with tapes and tapes with CDs. I’ve replaced videocassettes with DVDs and am very slowly switching to Blu-ray. I frankly don’t think I’ll live long enough to go another round.

Sounds like my AT&T Password. And THEN they say "Make it something you find easy to remember."

I’m always slightly worried when I exit an application and it asks me if I want to save my changes when I’d swear I didn’t make any changes.

Why doesn’t the freezer have a light too? What, we don’t need to find stuff in the freezer?


You want to know how many times you can say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said? The answer is three. Try it. You’ll see.

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Jeans? Jeans never get dirty. You can wear them forever.

First Senior Moment
The first senior moment

I used to look at my watch 3 or 4 times in a row and still not know what time it was at least partly because I couldn’t read the numbers. I rethought the problem and stopped wearing a watch. No more problem.

    1. I collect them …. you know, people send them to me like they do everyone on the Internet … and when I have enough that I think are really funny, it’s a post πŸ™‚


  1. I can relate to the password cartoon. Hoo, boy.

    Blogger The Byronic Man did a hilarious video, Masterpiece Theater style, about how to fold a fitted sheet. I recommend going to his website and typing in the phrase “how to fold a fitted sheet” to see it. I crack up laughing each time I see it.


    1. I will have to do that. In all these years, no one I know has worked it out. As for the password … I can’t for the life of me remember my AT*T passwordd or the one for my ISP. I have to change it every time I need it. It’s the gang symbol and blood of a virgin that’s so tough to remember.


  2. I feel exactly the same about the Blu-rays!
    Cartoon-wise, I like the dinosaurs missing the Ark best (I’ve seen the password one before or it would have been that) πŸ™‚


    1. Oh, yes. For me too. Although the password one hits so close to home. AT&T has officially finally made it so that ONLY hackers can figure out my password.
