Why did the chicken stop in the middle of the road?
A Freudian Slip is When You Say One Thing But Mean Your Mother - Gary Blake

I think I've called this book everything but it's actual name when talking about it to other people and that's probably because it has quite the title: A Freudian Slip is When You Say One Thing but Mean Your Mother: 879 Funny, Funky, Hip, and Hilarious Puns by Gary Blake. If you think the title is a mouthful you should take a peek at what's inside. It's absolute chock full of punny goodness. My mom left this with me nearly a year ago with turned down pages and highlights of her favorite jokes (this is so her type of humor). I enjoyed employing them on unsuspecting coworkers and watching their eyes roll into their back of their heads at the corniness (and sometimes incomprehensibility). 

 

To give you a taste of what I'm talking about here's one from page 211:

Did you hear about the guy who was hit in the head by a bottle of soda? Lucky for him, it was a soft drink.

Cue all of your friends either nominating you for an award because you used this on them or they might actually whack you upside the head with an actual bottled beverage. I must also caution that there are some rather problematic jokes in this book (the argument could be made that he doesn't pull any punches toward any group of people). Also, if you're not particularly hip to the political jibe (as I'm not) then some of these aren't going to make a lot of sense. I think this is one of those books that you come to every now and again but I wonder how many people sit down and read it cover-to-cover as mom and I have done...unless they're trying to get some new jokes under their belt. ;-)

 

PS The answer to the joke in the title of today's post: It wanted to lay it on the line.

Cows doing cow things where they shouldn't be doing cow things

In a week of momentous events such as Brexit and the fallout from that, this still might be the single greatest thing I've read on the internet all week. Even better than Donald Trump posing the wife of a religious leader next to his Playboy cover for a photo op. Just trust me :)

I'm not sure which bit is better. The puns, the random insertion of a link to the song "Cattle Call" or the absolutely hilariously serious TV news video at the start of the article.

The Best Book of Riddles, Puns, and Jokes - Bronnie Cunningham


Best Book of Riddles Puns and jokes by Bryon Cunningham
Over 1000 on this audio tape that will delight a child of any age.
So many topics of interest are lumped together. One of my favorite was the ones about elephants.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

What if Dogs Wrote Classic Novels?

The greatest things in the world are, in no particular order, dogs and books. Groucho Marx put it best: "outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

 

But what if you could multiply the best-frienditude and put adorable canines in literature?! Or, as Xzibit would say, "Yo dawg, we heard you like dogs, so we put dogs in your book so you can dog while you dog. Dogs!" Here are six brilliant reimaginings of pup-ular novels.

 

Moby Bone: An obvious choice: dogs are really into finding bones, Ahab is really into finding whales, bones and whales are both white and...live in the sea, sort of? It works. We also just love that doggie sailor outfit.

 

 

The Fetcher in the Rye: Holden Caulfield is practically a dog already: he loves whining and looking at ducks and running through fields. Sample dialogue: "Woof woof, bark bark, ya damn phonies."

 

 

A Walk to Remember: It was warm out, the leash was comfortable, there were tons of good smells, and Mandy Moore was somehow involved.

 

 

I, Marley: Finally, the "world's worst dog" gets to take the story into his own paws. Be sure to have tissues ready for the heartrending final chapter when Marley has to bury his owner's corpse on the family farm.

 

 

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Puppies: It is a truth universally acknowledge that the original version of this book did not have enough dogs.

 

 

Dog with a Blog-to-Book Deal: If there is actually a dog out there that is sentient enough to maintain a regularly-updated weblog, PLEASE CALL US NOW YOUR CONTRACT IS WAITING.
