New Award on the Block!

Yes, that's right, there's a new Award on the block - the LOL Award, and I've got one!!! This new one was very kindly presented to me by Becca

Now I can only think that it was my comments about my Wii Fit age that has swung this Award for me, as I'm sure you will agree you don't really get a laugh a minute when reading my posts.  Anyway, thank you Becca.  I was really thrilled (and that doesn't happen very often these days!!  Come on now - that must deserve a LOL!).

Golly gosh, does that mean that I am going to have to change tack here and come up with something really funny every time I post.  Well, sorry, folks, but that's just not going to happen!  (I can feel Becca trying to wrench that Award back even as I speak).

To try to be deserving of my new LOL Award, I thought I would try to give you a few funny quotes today, which, hopefully, might at least bring a smile to your face.  Here they are -

Experts say you should never hit your children in anger. When is a good time? When you're feeling festive?

They've finally come up with the perfect office computer. If it makes a mistake, it blames another computer.

If it weren't for electricity we'd all be watching television by candlelight.

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

I used to have an open mind, but my brains kept falling out.

What, you want more?!

Everyone has a photographic memory.  Some just don't have the film.

Always borrow money from a pessimist.  He won't expect it back.

I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.

I will mention about the rules for this Award in tomorrow's post.

Don't worry, thisisme will be back to her normal self tomorrow!

Bruce - Hi. I thought that one about the grandmother was really good. I can imagine my family doing that to me (LOL!). They'd be sitting down for lunch one day, six years after I set off for my walk, and suddenly one of them would say "haven't seen grandma for a while!!"

Becky said...

This ~ You make me laugh quite frequently! So, yes.. you deserve this award! :) Love the quotes!

Rebecca said...

you're welcome and it totally was the age thing

Thisisme, you are in rare form here! These are great jokes that really did make me LOL. Congratulations on receiving more recognition from your admiring peers. You are too modest about your sense of humor. Nearly every one of your posts is laced with humor and clever word play, even when you feel the need to vent and rant. Your playful nature is something that I admire very much. Keep laughing and you'll live longer. That's my philosophy.

For someone who is not funny you sure did a good job of making me laugh this morning my friend. You are just full of talents you didn't even know. Congratulations on another award.

BB said...

This...Congrats and yes you do make me laugh ALOT. Could it be that Grandma keeps making left turns and can't find her way? Someone really should go looking for her the poor thing. Hugs!!

Belle said...

Congrats on your cool award. The grandma joke was my favorite, but they were all good!

Southhamsdarling said...

Tanya - thank you. I like laughing too!

Belle - Thank you. I liked the grandma joke the best as well, but perhaps that's just because we ARE grandmas!!!
