What made you laugh today?

Post by Terry Tibbs » Sat Mar 03, 2018 11:10 am

Hi all. A general thread to maybe share what made you laugh (within reason!) on the proviso it was today, not last week or year :D Could be something really simple, lighthearted but not funny jokes etc., something that happened.

Listening to Frank Skinner & co on absolute 80s, this morning. Always find an amusing angle on things :thumb:

I went to a local pub for a coffee this morning availed myself of the gents. On the wall was a contraceptive machine somebody had written this chewing gum is horrible on the wall next to the
machine. Underneath somebody had written; "Should have gone to Specsavers"

Radio 2, this morning, played "White Wedding", by Billy Idol, for those who are getting married today.

EDIT (It was heavy snow on 3rd March)

Robbie Savage on 606 saying that Harry Kane is the best centre forward in the Premier League; Sane, Firmino and Salah are better to start with.

Have you ever seen a sign that states "Police Accident" and discovered that it doesn't involve the Police
just members of the public. I saw one of those this morning. Another sign that makes me smile every day I drive past it is states " Burning Wood in Sacks" I wonder how long it takes to burn through the
sacks.

Saw a poster today at our village hall. 'NEARLY NEW BABY SALE'. I suspect that most mothers would prefer a new one!!. :)

We now have a Low Level snap shot section. Excellent.

I have always smiled at the thought of having to climb hills to take low level shots.

One of Doddy's quips which I hadn't heard for years :O

'What a wonderful day for going up to Nigel Mansell and pushing a broom handle down the front of his trousers and saying 'How's that for pole position'' :lol: :lol: :lol:

The regular squirrel visitor, this time precariously perched upside down, dangling on the bird feeder whilst grappling with his nuts.

He looked at me hard not to grin back, boy he didn't have a care in the world. Apologies if it was maybe a she, couldn't tell tbh. Funny as.

I had seen a photo before but while on the road in rural Somerset I actually came up behind one of those slurry/septic tank clearance tankers marked "Stool Bus" which made I chuckle. Had to stop while he reversed into someone's driveway and noted the front of the vehicle was marked "The Only Way Is Wessex". Cheers, ZF.

Maybe not a laugh, but certainly a wry smile...

I was driving my car in a funeral cortege this afternoon as usual we were travelling very slowly and the cortege was overtaken by an elderly gentleman on a invalid scooter I had my car window in the down position. The elderly gentleman shouted "I will race you" I replied "We are going to the Crematorium" He replied " B***********F, I'm not ready to go there yet" That's what made me laugh today.
