Thanks for the Sunday morning laugh!

Love the old church bulletin bloopers.
They can always bring a sunny smile even when clouds are threatening.

sue hanes said...

Z - Thanks for these. More than one of them brought a much needed smile to my face. They were all good.

I especially like the one about texting - as that is so dangerous.

Have a great day - Z.

Thanks for the laugh Z :)

Makes me wonder if obama has ever told a joke that didn't involve the death of rush limbaugh...

Has he ever told a joke period?

Z said...

"Has he ever told a joke period?"

Sure! That he'd be a good president... :)

Kid, speaking of Rush...the fact that the Obama thugs are so specific in insulting the Right by names, "cable channel", etc. is so profoundly sad for our country (I always wonder why they referred to FOX as the cable channel because CNN and msnbc are cable channels, too...now they say FOX every chance they can insult).

Presidents weren't that withering in the past, never insulted the leanings of half of America before so specifically and so dismissively. The big GRIN on his face, as if "you folks BUY that crap?" It never stops from him.

Obama's REALLY lowered the bar in so many things presidential, hasn't he.


Also...I've been thinking Obama got off lucky with the many chastisements he's got from his "you didn't build that' comment because the rest of the statement was SO FAR WORSE..." I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be 'cause I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else."

That "JUST SO SMART" really reveals a lot about him...A LOT. He's a very small hearted, playground bully-type.

By the way...AMERICANS paid for those bridges, not GOVERNMENT...and I drive the same roads and bridges, and I didn't invent the iPod, so........

Kid said...

Z, Yes, a President has Never taken any section of media to task. It's so anti-First Ammendment and therefore anti-American.

obama has never accomplished anything by his own hand. Never worked an honest day in his life, and therefore - Cannot Possibly have the slightest clue what it take to build a business.

And American Business and Citizens paid for All the infrastructure through taxes and tolls.

In the case of Eisenhower, Government Facilitated the building of the Interstate System, but even then "got in the way" by using an 8 inch base for the pavement instead of the required 11 inches, which caused it to require a lot more maintenance.

Outside of that, government only gets in the way of infrastructure projects.
Stopping the building of an important project because a few prairie dogs are in the way. They don't mind moving, really. Probably appreciate the new scenery.

And possibly the Granddaddy of them all:

"After the Sermon, the choir will sing Sleepers Wake."

Thanks, I can always use a laugh!

Z said...

Viburnum, here it is (from my post about 8 down on the book after I'd finally READ IT!)

Viburnum...cool, huh? He's actually a writing partner of a dear friend's husband and I hope to meet him some day soon. His site's cool, by the way...check it out! He mentioned my post and quoted a bit from it.

between you and me, there just might be the idea for a new book brewing! I HOPE SO!

And yes, BOB SMILEY FOR PRESIDENT :-)

honestly, V, when you said you laughed and laughed (having read it before I had), I thought "how funny can it BE?" but it is positively HILARIOUS, isn't it? I just burst into laughter at the way he put SO many things..

And the way he skewers Obama, SOros, the VP, etc...and the END? I was worried about the ending as I read...but he NAILED IT, didn't he?! Who'd have thought...?

great book.

Scotty said...

I was once told, many moons ago, that if you don't think God has a sense of humor......just look into a mirror!

Rita said...

Ok. Ok. You convinced me. I'd live to have a signed copy but since I bought my Nook glow a few months back, I'll order it on there. So cool he commented on your blog.

Z said...

Scotty, that's funny!

Rita, I SWEAR TO GOD, you will laugh your head off and hubby will like it, too...and it's pretty profound, really...I can't wait till you get it ! xxx
