Friday Funnies

I am at home with a sick child today. Fever, stomach ache - whatever is going around that everyone else has has finally come to visit at my house.

Keeping it light since today is Friday. I am not going to go on about how I sat at a track meet from 4:30 until 9:30 last night. My son (the sick one) ran the mile and a half (2400) and the mile (1600). So in that 5 hours only about 15 minutes of it was him actually doing something. And, I will not complain about how cold it was. Yes, my blood has gotten thin living down here in sub-tropical land but the wind was up last night and I had on two jackets and a blanket - kind of an Ann Taylor Homeless look going on.

On to the funnies:

My youngest (8) told me the other day that he wanted to be a...what are those guys who talk and are funny??

me: a comedian?
D: yeah. One of those. My whole class thinks I am really funny cuz I make up jokes all the time.
me: Lay one on me.
D: What do you call a guy who lives in the jungle?
me: I don't know.
D: Tarzan.
me: Oh! I get it (desperate chuckle approximating laughter).
D: Here's another one. Why are fish so smart?
me: Hmmmm, I don't know (but I did really KNOW!)
D: Cuz they are in schools all the time.

Well, forget college. Obviously, I have the next Seinfeld on my hands. Have a great weekend!


  • You might want to slip a few college brochures under his cereal bowl next time he tries his jokes on you.

    Seriously, I hope the sick bug exits your house very soon. This sick business is for the birds.

  • I will be expecting free tickets to his first appearance on Leno!! Being one who just wants to help a kid with a dream.....I am willing to share one of my own fine jokes:

    Q-What do you call a bear with no teeth?


    Ha, ha......ha, ha, ha ha!!! Is that hysterical or what?? It is always a winner with my second grade audience at school.

  • My personal favorite:

    Q-Why is the grass green?

    A-Because if it was blue you wouldn't know when to stop mowing the lawn!

  • Wait, I did that wrong. It should be:

    Q-Why is the sky blue?

    A-Because it if was green you wouldn't know when to stop mowing the lawn!

    Maybe I should lay off the Bailey's Irish Cream in my morning coffee...

  • Mmmm Bailey's Irish Cream. *Homer gurgle and drool*

    Feel better Deb!

    Why is the woman called "woman?"

    Because when Adam saw Eve he said, "Whoa man."

  • Hmmmm....Me thinks ya'lls jokes are worse than my son's.

    Carol - he is in 2nd grade and LOVED the gummy bear joke and will add it to his routine.

    GG - no Bailey's B4 noon. Or no jokes after Bailey's!

  • Don't forget why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 (ate) 9.

  • Hold on just a little bit longer- the actual sense of humor that makes sense should be developing shortly. This is why 8 year olds are capable of crossing the street by themselves, it is a brain development thing.

    PS Matt says: What does Santa drink at the bar?

    answer: rein-beer

  • Telling all those bad jokes probably caused his illness.

  • Tell your son Jane thinks his Tarzan joke is the bomb!

  • Madeleine (age 4): Mommy what did the 0 say to the 8?
    Me: I don't know
    Her: Nice belt!
    Me: That's pretty good honey, but I just told you that about 5 minutes ago. Tell me a new one.
    Her: Okay, what did the 7 say to the 1?
    Me: I don't know.
    Her: Why do you have that line on your bottom?

    And by the way Debbie... I think the Tarzan one was awesome!

  • My son's original joke:

    Why was the dog meowing?

    Because it's owner said, "Stop BARKING!"

  • My 5-year-old went through a phase a few months ago where he was trying to make up jokes all the time. I wish I had written some of them down now. None of them were traditionally funny, but I remember a few of them as being so bizarre they actually made me laugh. So of course he thought they were ha-ha funny and would repeat them.

  • Well, he should make a ton of money and you will save for not having to shell out for college. Sounds like a win/win to me.

  • Internet, don't believe "Ann Taylor homeless." This woman looks like a supermodel at 8am. Trust me. I've seen it.

  • Awwwww...hope all is well soon. (And I didn't believe it at all, Ms. Sarcastic!)
