The Fabulous Friday Funnies

True story

Last night my grandson, who is 13, asked me if I knew anyone who was in World War II. I told him that the first one that sprung to my mind was my Dad. He then asked me if he came out of it alive!!!

My friend wanted a boat more than anything. His wife kept refusing, but he bought one anyway. “I’ll tell you what,” he told her. “In the spirit of compromise, why don’t you name the boat?”

Being a good sport, she accepted. When her husband went to the dock for his maiden voyage, this is the name he saw painted on the side: “For Sale.”

Bring a newborn on a plane, and you get “The Look.” Not one of “Oh, what a cute baby.” It’s more “Please, God, don’t let that mom sit next to me.” So when our baby began to wail just after takeoff, you could have cut the tension with a Tickle Me Elmo doll. Was my wife rattled? Not at all. She lullabied our daughter with, “I’m teething, on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be calm again.”

A fisherman’s wife was sitting by a tent in a clearing on the bank of a river when along came the park ranger and said, “Excuse me ma’am but I need to speak to your husband. Can you tell me where he is?”

She replied, pointing to a clump of reeds. “Go over there and look for the pole with a worm on both ends.”

As I was nursing my baby, my cousin’s six-year-old daughter, Krissy, came into the room. Never having seen anyone br-*st feed before, she was intrigued and full of all kinds of questions about what I was doing. After mulling over my answers, she remarked, ‘My mom has some of those, but I don’t think she knows how to use them.’

An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the Passengers exited, smile, and give them a “Thanks for flying our airline.”

He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, “Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?” “Why, no, Ma’am,” said the pilot. “What is it?” The little old lady said, “Did we land, or were we shot down?”

We all fail sometimes. But there’s something about failing with style. Here are some of the best test paper blunders from the most clueless – and inventive – of students.

I decided to buy an outfit for my girlfriend this weekend. I went to the mall and found a really cool twin set in this one store, but for the life of me I couldn’t remember what size she is.

I looked around and luckily saw another customer in the store who was built pretty much like my girlfriend. So I went up to the person and said, “Excuse me, sir, but what size are you?”
