A 3 Stooges Week Ender

As this is not only the end of the week but also the last "official" working day of November, I thought I would add another show clip here, courtesy of  Like . This one is the 3 Stooges classic "Disorder In The Court", with Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard.

Hope you enjoy the clip and have a great weekend.

Classic T.V. Was The Best

One of the things I enjoyed growing up were the television shows that were on at the time. Shows like Gomer Pyle, Gilligans Island, Bonanza, and so on. Much of todays stuff can't hold a candle to the older stuff and with that in mind, I think I'll add a classic t.v. show here every once in a while compliments of  Like Television. com.

The first one is one of my favourites. It's "The Andy Griffith Show" with guests The Dillards and Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse from Dukes Of Hazzard) as the Darlings. Hope you enjoy it.

Smarter Than Your Average Principal

A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students The teacher asked, 'Harry, what's your problem?'

Harry answered, 'I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!'

Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office.

While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the
boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

  • Principal: 'What is 3 x 3?'

    Harry: '9.'

  • Principal: 'What is 6 x 6?'

    Harry: '36.'

And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, 'I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade.'

Ms. Brooks says to the principal, 'Let me ask him some questions.'

The principal and Harry both agreed.

  • Ms. Brooks asks, 'What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?'

    Harry, after a moment: 'Legs.'

  • Ms Brooks: 'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?'

    The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!

    Harry replied: 'Pockets.'

  • Ms. Brooks: 'What does a dog do that a man steps into?'

    Harry: 'Pants.'

  • Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?'

    Harry: 'Coconut.'

    The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.

  • Ms. Brooks: 'What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?'

    The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer,

    Harry replied, 'Bubble gum.'

  • Ms. Brooks: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?'

    Harry: 'Shake hands.'

    The principal was trembling.

  • Ms. Brooks: 'What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?'

    Harry: 'Firetruck.'

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, 'Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong.....'

Don't Forget Your Flu Shot

The first half of this makes sense, but I like the second half better.

  • Eat right!- Make sure you get your daily dose of fruits and veggies.

  • Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C

  • Get plenty of exercise because exercise helps build your immune system.

  • Walk for at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.

  • Wash your hands often. If you can't wash them, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.

  • Get lots of fresh air. Open doors & windows whenever possible.

  • Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.

  • Get plenty of rest.


Take the doctor's approach

Think about it...

When you go for a shot, what do they do first? They clean your arm with alcohol... Why?

Because... ALCOHOL KILLS GERMS.   So.......

  • I walk to the liquor store. (exercise)

  • I put lime in my Corona ...(fruit)

  • Celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)

  • Drink outdoors on the bar patio..(fresh air)

  • Tell jokes, laugh....(eliminate stress)

  • Then pass out. (rest)

The way I see it, if you keep your alcohol levels up, flu germs can't get you!

My mother always said.....

'A shot in the glass is better than one in the ass!'

Christmas, Canadians, And St. Peter

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

"In honour of this holy season" St. Peter said, "You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into Heaven".

The man from Hamilton, Ontario fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on and said "It represents a candle".

"You may pass through the Pearly Gates" St. Peter said.

The man from Vancouver, B.C. reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, "They're the church bells".

St. Peter said, "You may pass through the Pearly Gates".

The man from St. Johns, Newfoundland started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of womens panties.

St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, "And just what do those symbolize?"

The man looked at St. Peter and said, "These are Carols."

Tough Little Boys

During this past weekends anniversary celebration, my brother-in-law (or was it his daughter?) mentioned a song by Gary Allen. Now I'll be the first to admit that I didn't have a clue who Gary Allen was, but it didn't take me long to find out he was a country singer.

I have posted his video below and as a father and grandfather, I can relate to the song. The only difference is I have sons and a grandson but the emotion is still the same. Enjoy.

Thank you.

Bye-Bye Birdie

One of the funniest animations I've seen in some time is also one with a message. It's all about a bunch of birds sitting on a telephone line. When a rather larger bird decides to join them, they turn into snobs (so to speak) and the end result is a hard lesson for them.

Hope you enjoy it.

Jeff Dunham & Walter

In the world of entertainment, one form of act is as old as Methuselah itself. For centuries, people have always been amused at the antics performed by a man (or woman) and their dummy. The ventriliquist has always been a favourite of people of all ages.

Some of the best included Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthey, Paul Winchell and Jerry Mahoney, and Shari Lewis with Lambchop. Over the last few years, a newcomer has climbed the ladder of success with a wide array of characters which include an alian (Peanut), a dead terrorist (Achmed), a jalapeno on a stick, as well as a few others.

His name is Jeff Dunham and my favourite character of his is without a doubt, the irascible, quick-witted Walter. Walter is a retiree who just can't seem to get along with anyone and hates seeing his wife enjoy herself. Here in the following clip is Jeff Dunham and Walter.

Cookie Blues

There is nothing better than sitting on the couch watching your favourite t.v. show while sipping on a coffee and having a few cookies to munch on. I love cookies.

Here is my idea of a pretty good clip. It combines music with cookies.

This week I'll be posting some different clips I've found. All are good for a laugh or two. Enjoy.

Try Tongue Twisters

Here are a few tongue twisters to try.

  1. Try saying "Toy boat" five times very fast

  2. I sit upon a slitted sheet, a slitted sheet I sit upon.

  3. Seventy salty Swedish seamen saw seven singing sirens serving savory soup on the steam ship Shanghai

  4. Say this one fast:
    "One smart fellow, he felt smart. Two smart fellows, they felt smart. Three smart fellows, they felt smart."

  5. The soldier's shoulder shook severely.

  6. How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

Don't Buy From MDG

If you've ever seen those ads on tv about buying a computer from some company or other, you'll know what I'm talking about. Take my advice and you will save some money and a lot of aggravation.


I saw their ad on the tube and thought it would be an easy way of getting a good computer relatively quick. Big mistake.

I've had this computer (P4, 17" flat-screen monitor, 80 gig HD, 1 gig Ram, CD burner, printer, sub-woofer spkr system, programs out the wahzoo) for just over 3 years and what follows is exactly what happened.

  • Computer system arrived(Aug. 2005). Everything was included as per arrangement. Speaker system no good. Parts broken inside and rattling around. Replacement ordered.

  • Replacement speaker system arrives. Works great, for six months then dies. Spend $30.00 on new and better set-up (Not from MDG).

  • Rebate offered on scanner/copier/printer not honoured, lose out on $100.00. Eighteen months after receiving computer system, needed to purchase new printer. Canon Pixma is great for family photos.

  • Has got real noisey the past 6 or 8 months. Makes enough noise, my neighbours in the next apt. have told me they can hear it at night.

  • This weekend (Nov 1, 2008), the 17" flat-screen monitor died. Now must use an old used Dell CRT monitor untill I can afford to get flat-screen fixed.

  • Unable to add more hard-drives or other pieces of hardware due to the way MDG sets up their systems.

To date, I have paid more than $1,500.00 and still have not finished paying it off.
