THE LIGHTER SIDE...


Thought it was time for some lighter stuff. Wish I knew who came up with these so I could give them credit, but have no idea. Anyway… enjoy!

New Rules of Life
New Rule: Stop giving me that pop-up ad for Classmates.com! There's a reason I don't talk to people for 25 years. Because I don't particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing these days: mowing my lawn and applying fertilizer.

New Rule: Don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Trout? Luckily, it was only a finger! If it was a whole hand, Congress would have voted to keep it alive.

New Rule: Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: lucky son of a guns.

New Rule: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

New Rule: There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of this shit at the supermarket - water, but without that watery taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.

New Rule: Stop messing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his butt will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the Social Security crisis.

New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the idiot. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge idiot.

New Rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my PIN number, pressing "Enter," verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "Enter" again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy. Paper, plastic? I don't have time for that. I've just been called to do a cleanup on Aisle Nine!

New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.

New Rule: Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the US Open of Competitive Eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too fricking exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh, wait. They're already doing that. It's called "The Howard Stern Show."

New Rule: I don't need a bigger mega M&M. If I'm extra hungry for M&Ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.

New Rule: If you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's remember that the reason something was a television show in the first place is the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.

New Rule: No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking up the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift-giving, it's the white people version of looting.

New Rule: and this one is long overdue: No more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just made it with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. I don't want to be on your web cam, dude. I just want to wash my hands.

New Rule: When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months. "27 Months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't care in the first place.

True story…

Yesterday afternoon, my wife and I watched our neighbor walking her Great Dane and she took the dog into our front yard to take a dump. We both rushed out to confront her, but she had already disappeared. There, right in the middle of our immaculate, manicured lawn was a huge, steaming pile of dog poop. My wife leaned over and exclaimed, “There’s writing on this!”

I had to rush back inside to get my glasses. Why? Well, I can’t read shit without them…

Semi-true story… (If you laugh at this you’re just proven you’re a truly sick individual…)

A friend of ours recently had a stroke. After an hour in the ER, the doc came out to talk to his wife, Brenda.

“I’ve got some good news and some bad news,” he said. “Which would you like first?”

“Uh… the bad news?” she stammered, unsure.

“Okay,” the doc said. “The bad news is that your husband has suffered a massive stroke. That means that for the next thirty years, you’re going to have to handfeed him baby food for every meal.

“That means that for the next thirty years, you’re going to have to wipe his butt.

“That means that for the next thirty years, you’re not going to be able to take a single day off. You’re going to have to be there for every minute of every day and every night in case he has a relapse.”

Brenda sat down heavily in one of those uncomfortable chairs they furnish waiting rooms with.

“Oh, my,” she said. “Well… what’s the good news?”

The doc smiled. “The good news is that your husband’s had a massive stroke, but I lied. He died.”

(If you smiled at this, you've just crossed over and no legitimate rehab in the world will take you in...)

Thanks for the laugh, Les.

I already knew my mind was twisted enough to find these funny. I need to email you as soon as I remember why.

Gary Baker said...

For some reason the gag about the Chinese tattoo translating to 'beef with broccoli' nearly killed me. Thanks for the aching ribs.

Anne Gallagher said...

No, there is no legit rehab that will take me. Thanks for the Monday funnies.

Raj said...

LOL.. good ones. The eyebrows comment reminded me of an episode of Seinfeld. :)

Susan Fields said...

Those were all so good. I kept thinking I'd comment on my favorite, but then a new favorite would pop up and I lost track. I really did like the eyebrow one, though. :)

Bri Clark said...

Hey Les,

Most of theses were great but this one "You think Dom Perignon is a Mafia leader."

Everyone knows he's Cartel member.
And the one about marrying your sweetheart is against the law. Well that cancels out if they are twice removed. At least in TN it is.

LOL
