I’ve linked up several times since then and was excited to have two posts highlighted as one of the “most clicked” of the week. Interestingly, both posts were about my husband. Thus, all my future posts will be about Dave. Well, I guess after this one…because today I have the honor of sharing my five favorite posts from episode #22 of Finding the Funny. And what a very special episode it was.
Over the weekend, I planted my ass on my porch chair and sampled all of the funny. There were over 60 posts. Although my ass became totally numb from sitting that long, reading the posts was worth it. Here are my favorites:
1. Time Marches On (and tramples my body) by Hollow Tree Ventures
Robyn hurt her shoulder while she was peeing. Do I even need to say anything else to get you to read this?
2. Computer, Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me? by Actual Times May Vary
My work computer took an hour to boot up one day last week, so I was definitely in the right frame of mind for Christie’s letters to her dying computer. I loved the riff on PC error messages. Christie’s blog was new to me and I love the whole premise of it. Time is my enemy and even physicists can’t explain it. I look forward to Christie’s help figuring out where the time goes.
3. Numbers Don’t Lie by Abby Has Issues
Given how pitifully ignorant most media reports of research findings are, it’s refreshing to read some statistics that are purposefully funny.
4. Matt versus the Mouse by Confessions of a Semi-Domesticated Mama
When I first saw the title Delilah gave to this post on the link-up, I worried she’d shot her wad. But Delilah’s such a gifted story teller I didn’t need the element of surprise to be amused. Either that or I just find men nailing themselves in the balls inherently funny.
5. I’ll Never Have Enough Tupperware To Buy A New Car by Paige Kellerman
Screw Tupperware. I always have plenty of containers and plenty of lids, but never do any of the lids available fit any of the containers. But that wasn’t what Paige’s post was about. Tupperware also fails to serve as legal tender. That didn’t stop Paige from trying to use it to barter for her dream car.
SPAM: the Magical Meat in a Can by Big Bags O Fun
I loved the Bagman’s David Letterman reference, but honestly…he had me at “SPAM.”
I have fond memories of fried SPAM sandwiches in my youth. And my father-in-law is obsessed with SPAM. Everyone in the family gets SPAM paraphernalia for our birthdays. I mean everyone. Even incredulous daughters-in-law. I have a SPAM snow globe.
Don’t forget to be amused at the Finding the Funny party every Wednesday.
