Friday Funnies

Its Friday Funnies here at my tea cottage, and I’m so glad you’re here to laugh with me.  I don’t know about you, but right now, the world, especially our own country, seems to be going a little off-sides, to use a football term, and it just seems to me that if all of the leaders around the world would trade their anger in on a little laughter, we might get somewhere. Alright, that’s just a little naive, I know, but its a good thought, anyway, and even if they don’t, we can…so come along the happy trail today, and let Kim at http://homesteadersheart.blogspot.com/ and all these great participants cheer you up.

I can’t tell you how many funny stories and videos I’ve come across this week that I wanted to share with you, but then I got this in an email, and thought it was too cute to pass up.  Enjoy!



A 72 year old bachelor who loved to fish was sitting in his boat
one day  when he heard a sexy female voice say,   'Hey, handsome, pick me up.'

He looked around and couldn't see any one. He thought he was dreaming so he returned to his fishing--when he heard the voice say again, 'Go ahead, Good Lookin', pick me up.'

He looked in the water and there, floating on the top , was a frog.

The man said, 'Are you talking to me?'

The frog said still in that sexy female voice, 'Well, Yessss, I am talking to you.
Pick me up, then kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen.   I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous  because I will be your bride!'

The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, carefully picked it up, and placed it in his front pocket of his shirt.

Then the frog said, 'WHAT?  Are you crazy? Didn't you hear what I said?   I said kiss me and I will make your dreams come true.'

He opened his pocket, looked at the frog, smiled and said, 'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.'

With age comes wisdom

When I first read this story, I did laugh…I wasn’t expecting the punch line.  Now, if you’re like me, and I know you are, you will find a “moral” to this story…I would love to hear it, so please share your thoughts in the comment section… funny or serious…whatever comes to your mind.

Okay…I’ll go first.

Because this story ends with the words “with age comes wisdom”, what came to my mind  was “temptation often comes to us looking very beautiful and appealing, with promises of wealth, fame, power, or whatever your desires  may be.”   However, it often disappoints and brings more heartache than its worth.

What do YOU say?

Have a wonderful Friday, everyone…may the good Lord bless you.  I pray that He blesses our beautiful, free country, the United States of America.  I pray that we stay united in our fight for an honest government that  is truly for “we, the people”.  If you’ve followed the news, you know that our voices make a difference…speak up, stand up, pray up!

Don’t forget our troops and their families.  Pray that they are protected by an invisible blanket that covers them, by an invisible shield that sends the bullets back to the sender, and by an invisible force, the Army of the Lord, that will fight along side each and every one of them. 



  1. That was funny, but I didn't expect the ending either. Thanks for stopping by my blog today it was nice to meet you.

  2. The moral of the story is if is seems too good to be true, it probably is!
    That was cute!

  3. That's a good one, lol. God bless you for aways keeping your country in your prayers.

  4. Oh, that was TOO funny! I did NOT see that coming, lol! Thanks ever so for sharing.

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  5. Hi Mary,
    Funny one. I agree with your interpretation. Have a wonderful weekend. Take care.


  6. Funny! Thank you for sewing sunshine and laughs, today.
    Blessings, andrea

  7. That's cute... and I like your challenge to find a "moral to the story."

    It's nice that the old fisherman finally learned to appreciate a "woman's" verbosity over her looks.

    Have a great weekend!


  8. Cute story! Great insight into the moral in the story, too.


  9. Hi,Mary:
    I think the old guy has a girlfriend who awaits his catch so they can enjoy fried fish together. At his age, he probably needs conversation more than anything! Have a great Friday.

  10. I loved this joke!
    And I love your insight, Mary!
    And I so appreciate all the help you send my way in the form of advice, prayer, quotes, and shared experiences.
    You're a good soul.
    Love and Prayers,
    PS ~ I'm having trouble with Blogger again, sometimes it won't show me when blogs have posted new, and now it's giving me trouble commenting too! Let's see if this works.

  11. That was a good one. And I think the moral is- anyone can have a bride but a talking frog can make you some serious money! LOL
    Happy Friday!

  12. Oh too funny! I think he probably worried about what kind of woman she might turn out to be. Sometimes it's better to keep what you have, rather than risk it all!

    Thanks for coming to visit me today. It was nice to "meet" you!

  13. Good one Mary, I think the moral of the story is that no matter how pretty the package it's how you feel about the inside that really matters. Love your prayers my friend...:-) Hugs
