Potty Humor

Sometimes the stuff that shows up on Facebook is just too silly not to share…

Ever heard of the Squatty Potty?

I hadn’t until it ‘surfaced’ on Facebook.

Does it work?

Apparently from the nearly 5000 positive reviews on, it does.

Need some more good laughs today? Read the reviews on the 9″ high version amazon.  And then additional reviews on the 7″ high version.

Here are some of my favorites:





Best Superbowl Ads

Here’s my favorite from yesterday’s game:

This Doritos 2016 Crash the Super Bowl Finalist commercial, created by Peter Carstairs from Perth, Australia, takes us through a couple’s ultrasound session. The director Peter made one of the best Doritos commercial. In this commercial The husband eats a bag of Doritos loudly, and the wife complains to the doctor about what she has to deal with. He begins to move a chip toward his wife’s belly and the baby reaches for it. Having some fun with this, he moves the chip back and forth and watches as the fetus pushes toward it, causing the woman to yell in pain. Fed up with his nonsense, she grabs the chip and flings it across the room. She suddenly lets out a loud scream, and the doctor and husband join in the screaming as the baby’s cries can be heard.

Followed by this one:

I love most any song by Queen, and the sheep are so cute (and very clean for sheep 🙂 ).

Chickens and Roads

Not sure, but I think this started here on Facebook: Entertaining Jokes.

Wherever it started, it’s hilarious! My favorite? Al Gore. 🙂

So why did the chicken cross the road?

ChickenSARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he’s a maverick!

BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.

JOHN McCAIN: My friends, the chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road?

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don’t really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.

DICK CHENEY: Where’s my gun?

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

AL GORE: I invented the chicken…. and the road.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken’s intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won’t realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.

chicken-3OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he’s guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way the chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer’s Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.


ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

DONALD TRUMP: We should build a wall so the chicken can’t cross the road.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn’t that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2014, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2014. This new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

Carpool Karaoke

Adeles-Carpool-Karaoke-2This is fun!

Most of us sing in the car while driving around with the radio on.

But James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, takes singing in the car to a new level when he joins up with stars.

His latest, with Adele, is priceless.


And if you want to watch some of his other Carpool Karaoke moments, catch them on BuzzFeed.

Singing Praise to Patti’s Pies

Singer Patti Labelle has teamed with Walmart to sell her Sweet Potato Pies.


The pies are literally flying off the shelf, so CNN’s Jeanne Moos investigated…

Check out James Wright’s original tribute to the pie.

It’s gone viral and will bring a smile to your face…

PS I haven’t tried the pie and probably won’t. I just love James’ video. 🙂


Ever want to watch a telenovela–‘a limited-run serial drama’?

Telenovelas are popular basically everywhere but the U.S. Their name is derived from tele, short for television, and novela, a short novel.

Telenovelas are similar to soap operas, but unlike soaps they generally don’t run more than a year.

There’s a series that started a year ago on the CW network called Jane the Virgin. It’s about “Jane Villanueva, a working, religious young Latina virgin, who becomes pregnant after being artificially inseminated by mistake.”

While Jane the Virgin isn’t a telenovela, it is similar to one in tone, playfulness, and content…


And it’s excellent! I highly recommend it!

Gina Rodriguez plays Jane, and her portrayal of a strong, confident, and religious young woman is spot on.

The supporting cast and characters are varied and perfect!


Season 1 is on Netflix, and Season 2 is currently airing on the CW.

PS Thanks to Melissa for telling me about the show. I’m loving it!

Dudley’s in Trouble…

Dudley, a darling Labrador puppy, is in big legal trouble!  Gotta love the English sense of humor…

From UK Daily Mail

Wanted for theft (of a garden hose) and murder (of a tulip bed): Police post hilarious joke appeal for wayward DOG called Dudley

Police posted a hilarious fake appeal for a dog who they said was later ‘arrested’ as part of a dawn raid.

Officers from Dumfries and Galloway posted the dog’s ‘mugshot’ on Facebook after a man reported the ‘theft’ of his garden hose and the ‘murder’ of his tulips.


They said the force’s ‘murder squad’ had identified the Labrador down using CCTV footage and later detained the five-month-old puppy, named Dudley, as part of a police operation.


In a similarly playful follow-up message, posted yesterday, the officers added they had followed a number of ‘leads’ and that it was expected the ‘perp’ would be sent to the ‘big dog house’.

In response, dozens of social media users started a spoof campaign for the dog’s release, using the hashtag ‘#freedudley’.

The post yesterday said: ‘You may recall on 17th September 2015, Police were informed of a theft and a subsequent ‘murder’ [theft of hose, murder of tulips].

‘The Murder squad quickly recovered CCTV from the locus of the “perp” in the act and circulated the suspect’s image to officers.


Facebook user Clare Muir said: ‘Poor Dudley…looks too innocent to have committed this outrageous deed. What about innocent until proven guilty? Free the Dumfries one.’

And Facebook user Jonathan Dempster hoped that the pup had been told its rights.

He said: ‘I hope an officer is going through the Puppies and Criminal Evidence Act with Dudley.

‘As his lawful defence, I submit Dudley was legally ‘ barking mad ‘ at time of the offence, and the court will note this is punishment enough, and request an order for Dudley be made to reside outside any big doghouse, instead having access to open fields, secure humane kennelling, and proper puppy care.

‘It is felt Dudley will make a full recovery, full rehabilitation, leading to the potential of Dudley making positive public contributions over the long term, I respectfully submit.’


Daylight Saving Time

As we all struggle with the time change, we can get a good laugh at this video made for the spring time change from John Oliver.

PS Thank, Joanne, for posting this on Facebook. 🙂

PPS When Carol and I worked at the school district in Fallon, the administrators were trying to figure out why the students’ test scores were so much lower than predicted. We told them that it was because they ALWAYS scheduled the spring tests during the week after the time change. Finally, after multiple years, they changed the dates and the test scores were higher. Of course the administrators took credit for the higher results. It had nothing to do with the date change, teacher skill, student effort, parental involvement, etc… 🙂
