Some Saturday Fun


Yesterday I read that laughter is good for the heart so I looked up some jokes on the internet.

How do you keep a bagel from getting away? Put lox on it.

A man tells his doctor, “Doc, help me. I’m addicted to Twitter!” The doctor replies, “Sorry, I don’t follow you…”

Once my dog ate all the Scrabble tiles. He kept leaving little messages around the house.

Paranoia has reached absurd stages. I sneezed in front of my laptop and the anti-virus started a scan on its own.

Anyone chuckling yet? Happy Saturday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Play on Words


Continuing Saturday’s play on words known as lexophilia:

I used to be a banker but I lost interest.

England has no kidney bank but it has a Liverpool.

I was told I had type-A blood but it was a typo.

When chemists die they barium.

I’m reading a good book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.

Why were the Natives here first? They had reservations.

I didn’t like my beard at first but then it grew on me.

When you get a bladder infection, urine in trouble

A dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary is a known as a thesaurus.

All the toilets in New York City have been stolen. The police have nothing to go on.

That’s the end of lexophilia laughs until another time. Enjoy your day.

 

 

 

 

A New Word (for me)


In case you’re not familiar with the word lexophilia here is an explanation I found online:

“Lexophile” is a word used to describe those who have a love for words, especially those set in a new framework. 

“You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “To write with a broken pencil is pointless.” 

Here are a few other examples:

Venison for dinner again? Oh deer!

A cartoonist was found dead in his home. The details are sketchy.

I tried to catch some fog but I mist. 

Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.

The guy who’s addicted to brake fluid says he can stop at any time.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me.

There’s more where these came from. Stay tuned.

 

 

 

God’s Sense of Humor


Big fat, fluffy, flakes of falling snow are accumulating all around my field of vision which happens to be in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Now this is to be expected in the throes of winter but today is April 6th!

The crocuses and daffodils were beginning to smile their way up through the thawing earth, and have had to postpone their journey…for who knows how long?

Snow shovels and salt pails stored away for the next eight months or so are about to be resurrected. Robins were chirping their spring songs and are now hiding in various tree branches.

I’m very happy that God has a sense of humor but would rather he give me something warmer to laugh about.

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; Psalms 2:4

 

 

Oops!


I’m not sure where I heard or read the following, or whether or not it was meant to be humorous. What do you think?

This is about a middle-aged woman who wants a new improved self.  Unfortunately, she ends up injured in a car accident and is rushed to hospital. As she floats in and out of consciousness, she begs God to keep her alive. God tells her not to worry and promises her a long, long life.

While she is in hospital recovering from her broken bones, she figures she might as well get a few other things done. She opts for a tummy tuck, a breast augmentation, has her eyes lifted and her nose reduced. She looks and feels like a new woman and can’t wait to show the world.

She has just left hospital for home when a bus rounds the corner, slams into her and kills her. When she gets to heaven she’s furious and tells God, “You said I was going to live a long life. What happened?”

God studies her face and says, “I didn’t recognize you!”

Oops!

God’s Social Club


Sometimes I wonder where my next blog will come from because they are mostly spontaneous rather than planned.

I spoke to someone yesterday who referred to church as a social club. It caused me to ponder the statement, which is how I came up with today’s title.

In a way this person was correct. To begin with, each man, woman and child is warmly welcomed as they enter the building. Next they find a comfortable (or not so) place to sit and pass pleasantries with the person next to them in the pew.

After the final formality of the worship service is completed in orderly fashion, the pastor is praised (or not) as we, the congregation, file out to gather for tea, coffee, goodies and socializing in the meeting hall.

As people catch up on each other’s lives since the previous week, stories are exchanged, jokes are shared, hugs are plentiful (a boon to those who live alone) and parting words are usually a cheerful “See you next Sunday, if not before.”

I’m very happy to belong to God’s social club where we come together for praise and worship, tea and coffee, and a chance to pass the raisin bread.
