funny-jokes-to-tell-your-friendsIf you’re looking for some funny jokes to tell your friends then look no further. Here are three little gems that are guaranteed to raise a smile.

Enjoy them all and please feel free to pass them on.

Funny jokes to tell your friends:

1. Challenging times:

When Jim arrived home one day, he was met at his front door by his wife, Elaine. She was sobbing uncontrollably.

What’s the matter, honey?” asked Jim.

It’s the pharmacist,” Elaine responded. “He insulted me terribly when I spoke with him on the phone earlier.”

Naturally, Jim drove downtown immediately to confront the pharmacist and demand an apology.

Before Jim could say more than a few words the pharmacist interrupted him.

Sir, please just listen to my side of the story first,” said the pharmacist.

Go on then, I’m listening,” said Jim sharply.

Well, this morning,” said the pharmacist, “my alarm failed to go off and so I was late getting up. I missed breakfast and hurried to my car. However, as I slammed my front door, I then realised that it had locked with the keys to the house and the car inside. So, I had to break a window to get back in the house to get my keys.

But how does that explain the way you spoke to my wife,” asked Jim.

Sir, I’m getting to that,” said the pharmacist. “Naturally, having broken a window, I had to board it up before I left. That made me even later. So, I was speeding in my car, in an attempt to make up the time, but a cop stopped me and I got a speeding ticket. Then three blocks from my store I got a flat tire.

So, you were unfortunate, so what?” Jim responds.

I lost more time changing the wheel on my car,” the pharmacist continued, “and then when I got to my store there was a bunch of people waiting for me to open. They were unhappy but I served them as quickly as I could, despite their moaning at me, and all the time the phone was ringing off the hook.”

Fine, but how does that explain your treatment of my wife,” asks Jim.

Well, the pressure didn’t end there,” the pharmacist continued. “To give a customer change, I had to break a roll of nickels but they spilt out of my hands, all over the floor. I get down on my knees to pick up all the nickels and the phone is still ringing. Then, I’m getting up off my knees only to crack my head on the open cash register. I then fell backwards against I showcase of expensive perfume bottles. They all hit the floor and there was glass smashed everywhere. Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing.

So, what did you do then,” asked Jim.

Well, finally, I had no choice but to answer the phone,” said the pharmacist. “It was your wife and she wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer. And I can honestly say mister, all I did was tell her!

2. Misunderstanding:

My wife and I were all dressed up and ready to go out for an evening of dinner and theatre. However, having been burgled previously, naturally, we were security conscious. So we turned on a night light and put our cat out in the backyard.

When our cab arrived, we were walking out of our front door when our cat Milly shot back in again and ran up the stairs.

Unfortunately, Milly liked to chase our pet parakeet, so the two of them couldn’t be left alone in the house together.

So, my wife went back into the house to catch the cat and put it back outside again.

Naturally, security-conscious as ever, I didn’t want the cab driver to know our house would be empty, so I told him that my wife had just gone inside momentarily to say good night to her mother.

A few minutes later my wife got into the cab looking very hot and bothered.

Sorry, it took so long,” she said. “The stupid bitch was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her ass with a coat hanger to get her to come out. Then she tried to take off again, so I grabbed her by the neck and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn’t scratch me like she did last time. But it worked. I hauled her fat ass down the stairs and threw her into the backyard. So, she’d better not crap on my vegetable garden whilst we’re out!

The look on the cab driver’s face was priceless.

3. Communication breakdown:

Judge Bernstein was interviewing an elderly lady regarding her pending divorce.

So, Mrs Thompson,” said Judge Bernstein, “what are the grounds for your divorce?

About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by,” replied Mrs Thompson.

No,” he said the judge, “I mean what is the foundation of this case?

Oh,” Mrs Thompson responded, “it’s made of wood, slate, brick and mortar.”

No, no,” said the judge, “I mean, what are your relations like?

Well,” she Mrs Thompson, “I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so does my husband.

Mrs Thompson, do you have a real grudge?” the judge asked warily.

No, your honour,” replied Mrs Thompson. “We have a two-car carport.”

The judge tried once again, “Please, Mrs Thompson, is there any infidelity in your marriage?

Yes,” said Mrs Thompson. “Both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don’t necessarily like the music, but the answer to your question is yes.”

Mam, please,” said the judge. “Does your husband ever beat you up?

Yes,” said Mrs Thompson. “He gets up earlier than I do on Saturdays when he’s playing golf.

Finally, the judge cannot contain his frustration any longer.

Lady, why do you want a divorce?” he asks.

Oh, I don’t want a divorce,” Mrs Thompson replied. “I’ve never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He says he can’t communicate with me!

3 funny jokes for everyone in need of a laugh or two

funny-jokes-for-everyoneHere are three very funny jokes for everyone in need of a laugh or two today.

Enjoy them all and please feel free to share them with your friends.

Funny jokes for everyone:

1. The subtle art of getting even:

Seventeen-year-old Brandon arrived home one day driving a fabulous Porsche 917K sports car.

Naturally, for his parents witnessing his arrival, this was a jaw-dropping moment.

Where the hell did you get that car, Brandon?” asks his father. “Did you steal it?

No, Dad,” replies Brandon. “I bought it.”

Brandon,” says his mother, “a car like that would cost in excess of $10 million. How could you possibly have bought it?

Oh, mum, you’re exaggerating,” says Brandon. “It only cost me fifteen dollars.

Fifteen dollars!” exclaims his father. “Who’d be mad enough to sell you a car like that for fifteen dollars?

It was Mrs Jones who lives in that large mansion on my paper route,” replies Brandon. “She saw me on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars.”

Well, Brandon’s mother and father felt compelled to pay Mrs Jones a visit.

When Mrs Jones answered the knock on her door, Brandon’s father was quick with his questions, “Why would you sell my son a classic sports car for fifteen dollars? What the hell is going on?

It’s very simple, really,” Mrs Jones replied. “This morning I got a phone call from my husband. He told me he’d decided to run off for a new life in Hawaii with his secretary. He said he wasn’t coming back and he asked me to sell his Porsche and send him the money. So I did.

2. Senior moment:

funny-jokes-for-everyoneBetty, an elderly Florida lady, had been doing her shopping and, upon returning to her car, she found four young men in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

Being the feisty lady that she was, she dropped her shopping to the floor and then grabbed a Smith & Wesson 5906 from her purse and shouted as loud as she could, “Yes, I’m armed; yes, it’s loaded; and yes, I know how to use it! Get out of the car punks!

The four young men could see that this wasn’t a lady to be messed with, so they got out of the car and ran like hell.

Feisty as she was, naturally, Betty was still a little shaken by her experience and the adrenaline was definitely pumping through her veins.

She loaded her shopping bags into the back of the car, and then she got into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she couldn’t get her key into the ignition.

Well, she tried and tried, and then she realized why.

It was for the same reason that she was suddenly wondering why was there a football, a Frisbee and two 6-packs of beer on the rear seat?

Suddenly, it dawned on her that her own car was actually located seven spaces farther along the parking line.

Oh dear!” she exclaimed to herself

So, she transferred her shopping into her own car and then she drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn’t stop laughing.

He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four very pale young men were reporting a car-jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, curly white hair, who was armed and dangerous.

No charges were filed.

Moral of the story: If you’re going to have a senior moment, make it memorable.

3. Medical cover:

Jim was out shopping in his local mall one day.

He’s browsing in a store when suddenly he suffers a serious heart attack.

Naturally, as soon as the clerks see Jim collapse on the floor, they called 911.

Within minutes paramedics are on the scene and Jim’s rushed to the nearest hospital, where he undergoes emergency open-heart, bypass surgery.

A few hours later, Jim is awakened from his surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

Sister Philomena, a young nun, is seated next to his bed holding a clipboard loaded with several forms and a pen.

Sir,” says Sister Philomena. “I know this is a difficult moment for you but I need to ask you, who is going to pay for your treatment? Do you have health insurance?

No mam, I don’t have any health insurance,” Jim responds, almost whispering.

Well then, do you have any money in the bank?” asks Sister Philomena.

No mam, I don’t have any money in the bank either,” Jim responds, once again, in an almost inaudible whisper.

Starting to get a little concerned, Sister Philomena asks, “Do you have any relatives who could help you with the payments?

Well, I only have a spinster sister but she’s a nun,” Jim responds.

Sister Philomena is really irritated by this insensitive comment and she announces loudly, for everyone to hear, “Sir, nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God!

Well then, that’s perfect,” says Jim. “You’ll be able to send the bill to my brother-in-law.

21 Quotes by Boris Johnson and I love the first one

Quotes-by-Boris-JohnsonHe’s undoubtedly one of the most colourful characters in British politics, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some quotes by Boris Johnson.

He’s always been a controversial character and he’s probably loved and loathed in equal measure. However, he’s not a man easily ignored. Certainly, he can be relied upon occasionally to offer us a memorable quote.

So here are 21 quotes by Boris Johnson and my particular favourite is definitely No 1. I’m sure when it comes to cake we’re all pro-having-it and pro-eating it.

Enjoy them all and please feel free to share them with your friends.

Quotes by Boris Johnson (1-7):

  1. My policy on cake is pro-having-it and pro-eating it.
  2. It is easy to make promises. It is hard work to keep them.
  3. I lead a life of blameless domesticity and always have done.
  4. I am supporting David Cameron purely out of cynical self-interest.
  5. Never in my life did I think I would be congratulated by Mick Jagger for achieving anything.
  6. I am hoping very much to get re-elected but it is going to be a tough fight.
  7. I’ve always sort of thought that politics was a high and noble calling and a good thing to do.

Quotes by Boris Johnson (1-14):

  1. The dreadful truth is that when people come to see their MP they have run out of better ideas.
  2. It would be a sad day if we British stopped being cynical, but you sometimes wonder whether we overdo it.
  3. I have more in common with a three-toed sloth or a one-eyed pterodactyl or a Kalamata olive than I have with Winston Churchill.
  4. My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.
  5. I’m not particularly politically correct, so I tend to reflect what I think are the terrible realities of life, which I think are, generally speaking, conservative.
  6. If we judged everybody by the stupid, unguarded things they blurt out to their nearest and dearest, then we wouldn’t ever get anywhere.
  7. I love tennis with a passion. I challenged Boris Becker to a match once and he said he was up for it but he never called back. I bet I could make him run around.

Quotes by Boris Johnson (15-21):

  1. What I really think about Banksy is I think he’s a genius; he’s a great artist, and I like his stuff. But he’s got to accept it if, from time to time, someone will need to paint over his work.
  2. There is absolutely no one, apart from yourself, who can prevent you, in the middle of the night, from sneaking down to tidy up the edges of that hunk of cheese at the back of the fridge.
  3. The beauty and riddle in studying the motives of any politician are in trying to decide what is idealism, and what is self-interest, and often we are left to conclude that the answer is a mixture of the two.
  4. My speaking style was criticised by no less an authority than Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was a low moment, my friends, to have my rhetorical skills denounced by a monosyllabic Austrian cyborg.
  5. I’m not one of those people who believes in going endlessly around finger-wagging and ticking people off for occasional colourful use of language.
  6. It is possible to have a pretty good life and career being a leech and a parasite in the media world, gadding about from TV studio to TV studio, writing inconsequential pieces and having a good time.
  7. It’s not reasonable for companies that have chief executives and board members who are paid very considerable sums to subsidise low pay through in-work benefits.

Please share this post with your friends:

Did you find these quotes by Boris Johnson interesting and occasionally amusing dear reader?

You did? I hope so.

If that is the case then please share them with your friends on social media. When you share everyone wins.

21 thought-provoking quotes about fake friends

quotes-about-fake-friendsHow often do you hear people say, “Oh, I have loads of friends?

For a very lucky few that may be true. However, mostly it’s not true at all.

Almost always, real friends can be counted on the fingers of one hand with some fingers to spare.

For me, a real friend is someone I could phone at 2 am if I was in serious trouble and be absolutely confident that they’d be straight out to help me in a heartbeat.

Everyone else is just people I know with varying degrees of familiarity.

Yes, there is a wider circle of people with whom I socialise occasionally but my close friends are those people I know I can count on when the chips are down.

A lot of people we know tend to be ‘fair-weather friends‘ and some of them will be genuinely fake. There when it suits them but otherwise they care little for us at all.

So we have to learn to differentiate the real from the not so real when it comes to friends. A real friend will be walking into your life as the rest of the world is walking out.

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about fake friends to help you with that process.

Quotes about fake friends (1-10):

  1. You don’t lose when you lose fake friends. ~Joan Jett
  2. A fake friend is an enemy in disguise. ~Ellen J. Barrier 
  3. Better an honest enemy than a false friend. ~German Proverb
  4. I didn’t lose a friend; I just realized I never had one. ~Author Unknown
  5. Make sure the lions you roll with aren’t snakes in disguise.  ~Genereux Philip
  6. True friends cry when you leave. Fake friends leave when you cry. ~Author Unknown
  7. Pay close attention to the people who don’t clap when you win. ~Author Unknown
  8. Growing up means realizing a lot of your friends aren’t really your friends. ~Author Unknown
  9. Fake friends: once they stop talking to you, they start talking about you. ~Author Unknown
  10. The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies. ~Author Unknown

Quotes about fake friends (11-21):

  1. Sometimes it’s not the people who change it’s the mask that falls off. ~Author Unknown
  2. True friends will always find a way to help you. Fake friends will always find an excuse. ~Author Unknown
  3. You never lose friends. Real ones will always stay, no matter what and the fakes, you don’t need them anyway. ~Drishti Bablani
  4. As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends and more important to have real ones. ~Author Unknown
  5. The same person that speaks highly of you will be the same person that downs you. Be careful who you call friends. ~Author Unknown
  6. You don’t lose friends because real friends can never be lost. You lose people masquerading as friends and you’re better for it. ~Mandy Hale
  7. A true friend cares about what’s going on in your life. A fake friend will make their problems sound bigger. Be a true friend. ~Author Unknown
  8. An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. ~Buddha
  9. False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports. ~Richard Burton
  10. I’ve got more respect for someone who comes out and says they don’t like me than for the ones who act like they do but talk bad about me when I’m not around. ~Mitchell Perry
  11. Everybody isn’t your friend. Just because they hang around you and laugh with you doesn’t mean they’re your friends. People pretend well. At the end of the day, real situations expose fake people. So pay attention. ~Author Unknown

21 thought-provoking quotes about change to inspire you

Quotes-About-ChangeAs the old saying goes,Change is inevitable except from a vending machine.”

We cannot avoid change because it’s going to happen whether we like it or not.

Trying to stop it is like trying to hold back the tide. It can’t be done.

Change is simply a force of nature.

If you hate change, you’re not alone. Most people hate change. That’s perfectly natural.

21 Extracts from funny complaints letters to make you smile

funny-complaints-lettersUnfortunate but true, people living in social housing tend to be at the lower end of the socio-economic scale. They often have limited education, so tend to be less articulate as well. The result for local councils can be some very funny complaints letters at times.

In Britain, local councils are the focal point for the provision of social housing, and they are the main recipients for what frequently turn out to be some funny complaints letters.

To illustrate my point, here are some extracts from funny complaints letters sent to local councils in Britain. All very innocent remarks, of course, but I’m sure the housing officers receiving these letters couldn’t resist a chuckle or two.

So take a few minutes to enjoy them all.

Funny complaints letters (1-10):

  1. My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand?
  2. It’s the dog’s mess that I find hard to swallow.
  3. I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.
  4. Our lavatory seat is broken in half and now is in three pieces.
  5. The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared.
  6. I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall.

15 quotes by Lily Tomlin that are sharp and witty

Quotes-by-Lily-TomlinOne of the greatest American comic personalities has to be Lily Tomlin in my opinion.

Born Mary Jean Tomlin in 1939, I think she’s up there with the very best female comedians like Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller and could give any of America’s funny men a serious run for their money too.

She is in fact an actress, comedian, writer, singer and producer and has had a successful career stretching back to the 1960s.

Here are 15 quotes by Lily Tomlin to underline my point.
