The Job Interview!

September 23, 2017

Happy Saturday!  As we begin the weekend, how about a little police humor, just for grins?

The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Gomer, who was not exactly the sharpest nail in the bucket, went in to try out for the job.

“Okay,” the sheriff drawled, “Gomer, what is 1 and 1?”

“11” he replied.

The sheriff thought to himself, “That’s not what I meant, but he’s right.”
“What two days of the week start with the letter ‘T’?”
“Today and tomorrow.”

He was again surprised that Gomer supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself.  “Now Gomer, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?”

Gomer looked a little surprised himself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, “I don’t know.”

“Well, why don’t you go home and work on that one for a while?”

So, Gomer wandered over to the pool hall where his pals were waiting to hear the results of the interview. Gomer was exultant. “It went great! First day on the job and I’m already working on a murder case!”



A Librarian’s Alphabet!

September 14, 2017

As I was aimlessly surfing the internet the other day, I stumbled upon this humorous take on the alphabet through the eyes of a librarian.

It starts . . . “A is for Access, a large part of our creed” . . . and continues through “Z is for
Libraries. (In LC classification!)”

Here’s the entire alphabet.  Enjoy! by Denise Plourde is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States License.

ProgressFix_largeHappy Wednesday!  Here we are, at the middle of the week which to me seems like a perfect time to interject some humor by way of this new demotivator (courtesy of www-dot-despair-dot-com).  As always, just enough crassness to make you laugh, but with just enough veracity to make you wonder if you should be laughing.   So, as we wrap up the week and start our downhill descent into the weekend, let’s knuckle down and stave off irrelevancy!

Some Groaners!

August 28, 2017

Last month I ran across some jokes that were advertised as “You Gotta Laugh,” and boy, were they right!   Enjoy!

Q: What was the patriots’ favorite food in the Revolutionary War?
A: Chicken catch-a-Tory!

“I just got an email about how to read maps backward, but it turned out to be spam.”

Grandpa: Young man, I’d like to tell you a joke about Social Security.”
Grandson: “What’s that?”
Grandpa: “You probably won’t get it.”

Micromanagement_largeI don’t know of too many people that enjoy being micromanaged.  But as we prepare to start the new work week, here is a wonderful demotivator (courtesy of www-dot-despair-dot-com) to help put a humorous spin (as well as a bit of perspective) on micromanagement.   Have a great week and I hope you do not find yourself in this situation.

The Cat and the Comma!

July 10, 2017

Once in a while you run across a joke that is a bit more intellectual than most.  And, when it includes a pun as well . . . ah, that’s just wonderful!  Here’s a joke that I discovered recently (please don’t groan too loudly).

Q: What is the difference between a cat and a comma?
A: One has claws at the end of its paws and the other is a pause at the end of a clause.

MediocrityPenguins_grandeHow often have you found yourself in the situation of saying to yourself that something you are working on is “good enough,” or that it is not worth putting any more effort into?  You could be suffering from a dose of “mediocrity.” Then again, you may also realize that while it is good to strive for excellence, perfection is never truly achieved and “good enough” can sometimes be an excellent compromise rather than being a slave to perfectionistic tendencies.  Regardless, here is a humorous look at mediocrity, courtesy of, that should hopefully bring a smile to your face!  Hang in there, the weekend is nearly upon us.

Drinkin’ With the Guys!

Some weekend humor for you (courtesy of  Enjoy!

Bob left work one Friday evening.

But it was payday, so instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with his friends and spending his entire paycheck.

When he finally appeared at home on Sunday night, he was confronted by his angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions. Finally his wife stopped the nagging and said to him, “How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?”

He replied, “That would be fine with me.”

Monday went by and he didn’t see his wife.

Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

But on Thursday, the swelling went down just enough where he could see her a little out of the corner of his left eye.
