Friday Funnies

13 Jun

I’ve really been diggin’ this Pearls Before Swine strip lately.

I’m with the rat.  Sometimes you just gotta call ’em like you see ’em.  Political correctness be darned.  Darned to heck.


So last night I was basking in the love fest that was your comments on my 100 post and I invited Chuck to join me.

Me:  Look at all these nice things people said.

Chuck:  Yeah, they love you.  What’s this little “edit” button over here?  Can you edit people’s comments?

Me:  Yeah.

Chuck:  So you could like delete things?  Or add things?

Me:  I guess.

Hey, wait a minute!

    I have always wondered why my comments are funnier on your blog than all the others…..

    Is THAT what you’ve been doing? Haha! I love the little stupid guy on the island that says “I draw a comic strip”

    I’m really out of it when it comes to comics. Never heard of this one.

    My kids were heavily into Fox Trot for the longest time. Then I found out my co-worker’s brother-in-law drew it. Now you’d think this story has some really cool ending but actually, that’s as far as it goes.

    A-ha! You’ve been outed! 🙂

    That’s cool, though! That’s only 2 degrees of separation.

    I think I’m going to start editing my spam comments so that they say something intelligible. Then I will have more comments. I will make them say things like, “This post is awesome–like, bythelbs awesome.”

    HA HA!

    Btw, LOVING the Wii Fit. I must confess that I avoid the areas that I really, really suck at, though. Then, too, of course, it’s terribly humiliating when my younger sister comes over and totally trumps my top score on the Ski Jump (which I had previously imagined myself to be doing quite well at) in like her first five minutes EVER playing. Hmph.

    Julie—You’re welcome.

    Jumbo—Yeah, this comic guy does not take himself at all seriously—it’s great.

    Susan—My high school European history teacher’s wife’s brother was a producer for Cheers. I’ve got nowhere to go with that one either. I don’t really know any comics any more except that I’ve been perusing the comic section for these FF installments and I can stand to read this one.

    cheryl—Shhh…I’m trusting y’all to keep it on the down low.

    madhousewife—Great idea! I say run with it.

    WoobDog—I suck at the ski jump. I totally don’t get the concept apparently. My favorites are the hula hoop, yoga poses and balance games. I love watching the rest of my family do the hula hoop too. Madhousewife rocks the balance tests, BTW.

    The guy that draws Luann lives in my town…how’s that for degrees of separation? Although I hate Luann so I’m not sure where that gets me. Oh and Ike Turner lived here too before he died just a couple miles away from us. We are just immersed with celebrity.

    I once knew somebody who was an obsessive Office fan. Oh, that’s me. That’s, like, 0 degrees of separation.

    I have absolutely nothing interesting to add but I’ve gotten to the point where I am physically unable to read a post without commenting.
    I did like this post, I thought it was funny.
    There you go.

    Jumbo—It’s hard to be impressed by Luann, but Ike Turner’s pretty cool. Not as cool as Tina, though. How far away do you live from her?

    Julie—Somehow I’m going to find a way to make “0 degrees of separation” a regular part of my everyday conversation. I might have to stretch the meaning a little bit now and again—maybe something like “Man, I just cannot get going today. My butt has had like 0 degrees of separation from this chair”—but I’ll make it work.

    Alison—I know you know how a girl loves her some comments.

    Your funny… and the comments are even better!
    I taught missionary lessons to a producer for the TV show Hogans Heroes and another guy that wrote a Christmas song (but I can’t remember what the title was…)

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. It’s always fun to make new blog friends!

  13. bythelbs June 15, 2008 at 7:47 pm #

    themotherboard—Hogan’s Heroes, eh? That’s fairly impressive. I would likely be more impressed by the Christmas song if you could come up with the title. I found your blog through Cheryl’s—fun stuff, I’ll be back! (Did that sound creepy and threatening?)

    You can edit your comments? Man, WordPress has some nice features that Blogger doesn’t. Oh what I could do with that power!

    Heck, I wish I could edit my own comments! Sometimes comments just don’t capture the funniness. Reminds me of Joe Foxx from “You’ve Got Mail” . . .

    “Joe Fox: I was eloquent. Sh*t!”

    (I hope it’s okay that I totally just asterisk cussed on your blog!)

    Boquinha, you can asterisk cuss on my blog anytime.
