The Lighter Side

The Lighter Side:

Humor comes in many forms. I like humor that is not dirty, racist or demeaning amongst other things. Old fashion humor you might say.

This months humor tends to be punny. Not all are puns, but tend to lean that way. Could be short one liners too. I will let you decide what category they should be placed in.

So here we go….. away with the show……..

1. I think Santa has river front property in Brazil. All our presents came from Amazon this year

2. My girlfriend is mute, she communicates by embroidery, it’s her version of sign language, sew to speak.

3. If there’s a storm going on outside, our cat scratches everything in its path, when it rains it paws.

4. Facebook is a lot like ancient Egypt, people writing on walls and worshiping cats.

5. I saw an inflatable ATM machine today, the screen said “Please do not enter PIN”

6. “Jesus Loves You”, can be a nice enough gesture in church, but not what you want to hear in a Mexican prison

7. If the chemical composition of water is ‘H2O’, does that mean that Holy Water should be ‘H2OMG’ ? …and Ice is H20cubed

8. That girl from The Exorcist was a real head turner

9. Did you know that health insurance and homeowner’s insurance are the same thing to a turtle.

10. I used to own a party balloon company but I couldn’t keep up with the high cost of inflation.

11. I was born to be a pessimist.  My blood type is B Negative.

12. I Googled- “Missing medieval servant”, it came up with “Page not found”.



The Lighter Side:

If you have read the lighter side before you know that I love word humor. A friend of mine, The Wonka has turned me onto a new form of word humor paraprosdokians. At least it’s new to me.

First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them. Winston Churchill loved them, so I am in good company. Think you will too.

Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is more often then not humorous.

Hope they tickle your funny bone too.

1. Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it’s still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up — we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left.

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

9. I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

10. In filling out an application, where it says, “In case of emergency, notify…. I answered “a doctor.”

Spread the Laughter, Share the Cheer,

Let’s Be Happy While We’re here!
