DOING SOMETHING ..... FUNNY(?)

"Do something funny for money" .......

If only Husband dearest hadn't decided (along with hundreds, possibly millions, of others) that it might be a fun idea to dye his hair bright red.

I have suggested he have his chest/back waxed instead - something I'm only too happy to assist him with, not that I'm relishing the thought of inflicting pain on him ...... (laughs wickedly) MUCH - but as he points out he's too much of a coward isn't really hairy enough and therefore it is no big sacrifice ..... what, and his dying his hair bright red is? I think not.

"What is she wittering on about now?" I hear many of you ask.

Tomorrow, Friday the 18th of March is RED NOSE DAY, of course. Aimed at raising money for charities both here in the UK and in Africa,

"Red Nose Day is  a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the process."

Anyway, in the spirit of the day I thought I could .....

  • Wear something funny for money
  • Eat something funny for money OR ......
  • Try ANY OF THESE OTHER FUNDRAISING IDEAS (as long as it doesn't involve me dying my hair red or sitting in a bath full of cold baked beans.)
No?

Knowing how much you all love my jokes (no groaning, thank you very much) I thought I'd literally be funny for money, so here goes .......

Police are appealing for help in finding a man who stabbed 6 people with a knitting needle.
They think he's following some sort of pattern.

I've got £100 in one trouser pocket and another £100 in the other trouser pocket, what have I got?
Someone else's trousers on.

Two sausages were cooking in a frying pan.
One says to the other, "Phew, it's hot in here."
The other says, "Oh my God! A talking sausage."

So, why not join me in .......
  • Nagging suggesting Hd re-think dying his hair red OR
  • Telling us your favourite joke?

You must have been laughing when you wrote this.So funny.
Red hair !I dont know,weird looking!

On their honeymoon, the blonde bride slipped in to a sexy nightie and, with great anticipation, crawled in to bed, only to find her new Catholic husband had settled down on the couch.

When she asked him why he was apparently not going to make love to her, he replied,
"It's Lent."
In tears, she sobbed, "Well, that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard!
Who did you lend it to, and for how long?"

Misha said...

Red hair! lol
Thanks for sharing those jokes! :D

Lilly said...

Thank you for the jokes! :)

By the way, you wrote 18th of April instead of March. Confused me for a sec. :P

I'm always trying to go the extra mile at work, but my boss always finds me and brings me back.

....Petty Witter said...

Ooh, you are naughty dr.antony.

Misha, don't encourage him, it's not funny.

Thanks for pointing that error out Lilly, I've corrected it. A great joke by the way, thanks for sharing it.

Loved your jokes. My kids have both gone for reddish hair this year and since then the jokes about 'gingers' have faded considerably. can't imagine why?

The Golden Eagle said...

I love the jokes! :)

Sanand said...

Kelly said...

You caught me off guard with the knitting needle joke. I burst out laughing when I read it!!

One of my favorite jokes might be a little too risque for here. I'll e-mail it.
:)

GMR said...

Oh Tracy....you and the jokes. ^_^ Thanks for sharing the smiles across the miles and good luck on the "funny thing" you choose!

Suko said...

I hadn't heard of red nose day before venturing here! This is the perfect "holiday" for your blog, which is ALWAYS funny! Will you post a pic of hubby with red locks? :)

Jenners said...

Here is a joke my brother made up when he was little and it has always made me laugh.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To see Hank.

StarTraci said...

Since I am a terrible joke teller, I'll stcik with encouraging your husband to resume life in his originating hair color.

I love this holiday, however. We don't have it here but I think it's a great idea to raise awareness.

I love the trouser joke and unfortunately, much too true for my circumstances.

Cheers, my friend.

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

I loved the first joke! - but as today was ´marking essays day´ (which is NOT fun) and not at all red nose day in the vicarage, the rules don´t apply to me (I can never remember jokes anyway).

There are moments in a chaps life when he needs to realise that his wife's objections are a little more than simple fun. So sorry to dissapoint but there will be no red-hair photographs, I couldn't face it. She is really scary you know!

I hope your hubby did the red hair. I think everyone should have red hair at least once.
Love the knitting needle joke.
I received these puns in the mail --
1. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian .
2. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering.
3. A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.
4. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other: 'You stay here; I'll go on a head.'
5. The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.
6. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, 'I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.'
7. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says 'Dam!'
8. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.
9. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.
10. There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
