Funny Mondays

Okay, I think I finally back on track. Today is Monday and I am supposed to be posting something funny for you guys and gals. For the last few weeks I have totally forgotten when Monday came around. I still think it has something to do with all the weird things going on with me, but hey, such is life. Below are some funnys for you!

From the Good Clean Fun Archive: A new take on an old classic, Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First". Being married to a Costello, I have a special affinity to the "Who's on First" bit. Now, this one is even considered old by today's computer standards, but you can still appreciate that humor.

Costello:  Hey, Abbott
Abbott: Yes, Lou?
Costello: I just got my first computer.
Abbott: That's great Lou. What did you get?
Costello: A Pentium II-266, with 40 Megs of RAM, a 2.1 Gig hard drive, and a 24X CD-ROM.
Abbott: That's terrific, Lou
Costello: But I don't know what any of it means!!
Abbott: You will in time.
Costello: That's exactly why I am here to see you.
Abbott: Oh?
Costello: I heard that you are a real computer expert.
Abbott: Well, I don't know
Costello: Yes-sir-ee. You know your stuff. And you're going to train me.
Abbott: Really?
Costello: Uh huh. And I am here for my first lesson.
Abbott: O.K. Lou. What do want to know?
Costello: I am having no problem turning it on, but I heard that you should be very
careful how you turn it off.
Abbott: That's true.
Costello: So, here I am working on my new computer and I want to turn it off. What do I do?
Abbott: Well, first you press the Start button, and then
Costello: No, I told you, I want to turn it off.
Abbott: I know, you press the Start button
Costello: Wait a second. I want to turn it off. Off. I know how to start it.
So tell me what to do.
Abbott: I did.
Costello: When?
Abbott: When I told you to press the Start button.
Costello: Why should I press the Start button?
Abbott: To shut off the computer.
Costello: I press Start to stop.
Abbott: Well Start doesn't actually stop the computer.
Costello: I knew it! So what do I press?
Abbott: Start
Costello: Start what?
Abbott: Start button.
Costello: Start button to do what?<br />
Abbott: Shut down.<br />
Costello: You don't have to get rude!
Abbott: No, no, no! That's not what I meant.
Costello: Then say what you mean.
Abbott: To shut down the computer, press-
Costello: Don't say, "Start!"
Abbott: Then what do you want me to say?
Costello: Look, if I want to turn off the computer, I am willing to press the
Stop button, the End button and Cease and Desist button, but no one in their right mind presses
the Start to Stop.
Abbott: But that's what you do.
Costello: And you probably Go at Stop signs, and Stop at green lights.
Abbott: Don't be ridiculous.
Costello: I am being ridiculous? Well. I think it's about time we started this conversion.
Abbott: What are you talking about?
Costello: I am starting this conversation right now. Good-bye.

From the same site:

"An abstract noun," the teacher said, "is something you can think of, but
you can't touch it. Can you give me an example of one?"

"Sure," a teenage boy replied. "My father's new car."

This one cracked me up from Giggles and Laughs.

Dear Mom,

$chool is really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With
all my $tuff, I $imply can't think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you can just
$end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you.



P.$. Thank$ for $ending the $weater.


Dear Susan,

I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an
hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you
can never study eNOugh.



P.S. Thanks for your NOte!!

Enjoy and have a wonderful Monday!
