I grabbed my little “Questions and Answer” book this morning. If you’ve only recently begun following the blog, you won’t know about this handy, entertaining little book, but you can find it on Amazon. It contains a year’s worth of thought-provoking, amusing, challenging, perplexing questions to answer. I expected today’s question to be something patriotic in nature. Of course, the United States is the only nation celebrating today, so question for the day has nothing to do with the Fourth of July holiday. The question is a fill-in-the-blank one:
____________ is funny?
Talk about a blank! That’s exactly what I drew. Funny? Uh, it’s 5 AM here — yes, we’re early risers — and my brain isn’t computing the concept of “funny”. Facebook, of course, is a wonderful resource for “funniness” — if such a word exists. Thinking back over things that gotten a big LOL from me, here are a few of my favorites. I posted this yesterday on my official author page: Christina Cole’s Love Notes. I laugh every time I see this hilarious clip.
Speaking of funny animals, cats, of course, are a mainstay of Facebook humor. Over the years, I’ve saved some of my favorites, like this one:
Note: I’d just come inside after working in the garden when I saw this for the first time. Needless to say, it truly cracked me up! Another one that kept me laughing for a long time was this one, posted by my best friend from childhood. She doesn’t do drugs; neither do I. That added to the hilarity, I think. And one more favorite funny cat. It’s General Tso! I have yet to figure out why I find this so funny, but I do. OK, enough cats. Enough animals. How about humans? Yes, human begins can be funny, too. Here’s one of my favorites. If you’re a Facebook “friend” or if you follow my author page, you’ve surely seen this before. Every time I see it, I have to repost it. In no particular order, other things I find funny are:
And on that funny note, I’ll leave you to your laughter and good times.
If you’re celebrating today, be safe!
