Pointing to the large-toothed toddler smiling back from the pew in front of us, my 2-year-old niece cut the silence by exclaiming, “Look mommy, a nowring beava [sic] (gnawing beaver in a British accent)!” Bless PBS, but don’t bless the toddler’s mother who glared back at us with a matching pair of beaverish central incisors.

This morning while shoveling the snow I hadn’t realized ice formed underneath. So hammering away at the incredibly stiff snow I slipped and fell. Luckily for me, the neighbor’s very handsome son was in town for the holidays and was there to witness the fall. I tried to get up quickly before he could help me up and I managed to tear the cuff of my jeans and the pocket of my coat in the process. So i will spend the New Year hiding out in the basement as my ego recovers.

Dear Notcot,
I am not witty enough to come up with a joke to make people smile, so instead, I am sending you a picture of a spider. I value the drawing to be worth a smile so I trust this settles the matter.

An ambitious young blonde woman, in need of money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type. She began, door to door, canvassing a wealthy neighborhood for work. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do.

“Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”

The blonde said, “How about 50 dollars?” The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

“You’re finished already?” he asked.

“Yes,” the blonde answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.” Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50.

“And by the way,” the blonde added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”

A few years ago we owned an adorable cocker spaniel named Sparky. Sparky was cute but not so bright. When Sparky was outside on her runner, she’d bark and whine to come back inside, it was so annoying. One day I put Sparky outside and she did her complaining thing for awhile and then it stopped. I went to the back door to check on her and there was Sparky, standing in the middle of the driveway and she was quiet and I swear I could see her smiling! Wow, she’s finally getting used to being outside without us. I called my husband to come look saying “Honey, come see..the dog is smiling, she’s happy”. My husband took one look and said “She’s not smiling, her collar is stuck in her mouth and the runner is pulling it backwards”. So now anytime I say something really “smart”..my husband says “Honey the dog is smiling”.

----- Michelle 18.12.08 20:16

My friend Julie just got a new phone… and somehow the names and numbers got mixed up while transferring from the old one. So one day she got a text message that said “hey, Tom and I are having a party, you should come!” (Tom is the name of my boyfriend). Julie couldn’t go so she texted back, and had a long text conversation with someone she thought was me, culminating with her planning to meet who she thought was me for lunch.

When Julie turned up she was very surprised to see her friend Allison. She greeted her and kept looking around for me… until she realized she had been texting Allison the whole time. And then she ran into me on the street the very next day! We’re planning to have lunch properly soon!

This is a joke entitled: The Geography of Women.

Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful!

Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe, well developed and open to trade, especially for someone with cash.

Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece, gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all conquering past.

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel, has been through war and doesn’t make the same mistakes twice, takes care of business.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada, self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.

After 70, she becomes Tibet, wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages…only those with an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge visit there.

THE GEOGRAPHY OF A MAN

Between 1 and 80, a man is like Iran,
ruled by nuts.

A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?“

When I was about three years old, my mother, mentioned something about Mount St. Helens erupting in Washington. I grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore, and being three years old I didn’t know the difference between Washington DC and Washington state. As far as I was concerned there was a huge volcano about to erupt and incinerate everyone in my neighborhood. I didn’t learn that Washington state was actually a few thousand miles away until a few years later. people should think twice before giving two places the same name - it can be confusing.

I believe that if I was given a Seagate FreeAgent XTreme 1TB external hard drive, then it would re-affirm my belief in humanity and I would become a better person.

This year, for instance, I suffered a terrible blow to my faith in the benevolence of the cosmos, via my spectacular failure to win the lottery. It has been my tenacious, yet perhaps unduly optimistic belief that the universe would furnish my meager life with a few gadgets here and there without any economic commitment on my part. But whichever deity lords over the distribution of prizes and unlooked-for boons, like wonderfully reliable external hard drives, seems to have scarcely looked in my direction all year.

I mean, I’m fair about it. I don’t go to engadget anymore, for instance; that just makes it impossible for me to walk past a church, synagogue or mosque without feeling compelled to go in an prostrate myself before the great iniquity of the universe and beg for some slick object of technolust as a mysterious prize in the mail.

I don’t ask much of the universe. And I try not to do any harm as well. To my knowledge I haven’t stepped on any ants lately. And I haven’t shot any politicians from afar with an Israeli-manufactured sniper rifle either, although admittedly this restraint on my part is owed more to my nervous fear of confinement, a politically apathetic temperament, a real uneasiness around guns themselves, as well as a firm commitment to the principles of pacifism.

So I don’t really think I deserve a Seagate external hard drive, but my heart beats a little quicker thinking about it. And though I wouldn’t claw myself over a seething tide of bodies in a wallmart store and crush the life out of any of you, i’d stand back out of your way and say ‘look, it’s just stuff, okay, people! we’re being manipulated by corporations! You’re all special - these ultra sweet drives will not enrich you! You’re better than this!’

Because that’s the sort of thing I tend to say. I don’t know why - it’s just the way I am. Righteous, they call it. A man of tremendous character, a famous bishop once remarked of me, though modesty prevents me from saying which. But in the meantime I’d be biting my lip with envy of anyone who walked away with the drive. I haven’t won anything in life, except a single jar of jelly beans when I was an insecure 15 year old. I mean, how fricking pathetic is that? People win all sorts of things, and I’ve won a jar of jelly beans. I’m not even sure I ever like jelly beans, but I can tell you that in terms of sweepstakes, I fail like it’s my job.

But if notcot gave me a 1TB Seagate Freeage Xtreme 1TB external hard drive, I’d have to revise it all, revise everything. My pessimistic expectation that the universe does not supply one with cool gadgets would be shaken. It would almost be like cool things happened sometimes, out of nowhere. It’d be cool - like Burt Reynolds cool. And I might be a better person for it, and all the lives of all those ants whom I didn’t crush will be vindicated.

Worst Christmas Story Ever? Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Seriously, think about the story. There is this reindeer who is different. All the kids make fun of him and tease him and then on that one fateful night, he becomes useful. “Hey Rudolph with your nose so bright! We found a use for you so we’ll like you now.” Honestly, is this what we’re teaching our children? Make fun of kids that are different, unless you find them a purpose that will directly benefit you, then you can be their friend.

Worst. Story. Ever.

I write a blog about the spoken word scene in the Twin Cities, and go to a lot of slams, some cd releases, and some miscellaneous readings. The slam scene is rowdy, and what I’m used to- the art is interactive, people drinking, snapping or whistling in appreciation, shouting and cheering after a piece. Going to a literary reading is Not Like That.

“Attending a reading at the Loft after having been steeped in slam culture is a bit of a shock to the system, a little bit like going to an art gallery opening in your smock after having spent weeks eating saltines and drinking box wine out of a mason jar. Actually, it’s nice, but you feel a bit underdressed.”

He’s the sweetest pup we’ve ever seen - we named him “Enzo” (for our love of cars). Here’s a ‘before’ and ‘after’ pic of him… the hairy guy is no longer hairy!! But he will be in good time. We are thankful to have been able to rescue such a gentle soul at Christmas.

Signs of life in the city.
A yound man’s life painted on a wall.

If humanity would ever fall
grafitti would artifacts of our lives.
Poetry scratched on a bathroom stall.

The concrete sounds like a concert hall
with the streets taking center stage.
A young man’s life painted on a wall.

A homeless man makes a hopeless call
for just a little recognition.
Poetry scratched on a bathroom stall.

Its what keeps our lives from being dull.
Flashes of color in a solid gray world.
A young man’s life painted on a wall.

A world of poets are answering the call
to make the streets into their canvas.
Poetry scratched on a bathroom stall.
A young man’s life painted on a wall.

Here’s the deal. We sat around for hours trying to come up with a few pithy, witty ideas to post up some holiday cheer. Let’s face it. The economy is in the toilet, the next “Pick Up Artist” is the one we didn’t like, and Britney Spears is still crazy. But we’re hopeful. There’s a brand new year ahead, full of gossip, new TV seasons and soon we’ll all be zipping around on those crazy Segway Human Transporters. In any case, next year is sure to bring more great opportunities for us to not only push the creative envelope, but even lick it. Happy Holidays from Julian Murray Photography.

There are times when laughing may not be the best option but you just can’t help it…
My 3 yrs old baby bro once came running to me completely broken down in tears, and managed to wheeze out between hiccups:

“I loo-ooked everyyyy-hic-wheeere and she looooosst it”

Needless to say I didn’t really get it but followed him as he pulled me to the living room where my youger babby sister was lying on the rug naked and cooing with pleasure at the breeze on her diapper-less self.
My bro points to her privates and, between sobs, says:

“She’s lost -hic- her wee-wee”

The fact that I burst into laugher didn’t please him much and so, to make ammends and try to calm him down, I proceeded to search around the house for my sister’s wee-wee…followed by a little sit-down session of boy vs. girl anatomy ;-)

One Christmas, Santa was having a really bad day. The local elves union was up in arms over their contract and were threatening a walk-out. Mrs. Clause was pissed that Santa was never around to appreciate all of the hard work she had been doing around the house. Santa decided he needed to go home, sit in front of a fire and relax.

When he got there, Miss Clause was all up in his face and wouldn’t let down. Then, there was a knock on the door. It was Rudolph. He said the reindeer were sick and tired of Santa not upgrading to the new lightweight sliegh and they were joining the elves walkout. Santa slammed the door and threatend “The next person who knocks on that door is gonna get it!”

At that time, there was a knock on the door. Santa flung the door open and there stood a tiny little angel. The angel had been searching for the perfect Christmas tree for Santa’s house all day long, until it found the perfect one. The little angel asked, “Santa, I was wondering where you would like me to stick this tree?”

And that is the story of how the angel atop the tree tradition began.

Sinatra was scamming on the chicks. I have proof.
“When I was seventeen
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for small town girls
And soft summer nights
Wed hide from the lights
On the village green
When I was seventeen

When I was twenty-one
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls
Who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair
And it came undone
When I was twenty-one

When I was thirty-five
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls
Of independent means
Wed ride in limousines
Their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty-five

But now the days grow short
Im in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage wine
>from fine old kegs
>from the brim to the dregs
And it poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year”

“The first thing was, I learned to forgive myself. Then I told myself, ‘Go ahead, do whatever you want, it’s ok by me.’”
Jack Handey

“Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let’s say you’re an astronaut on the moon and you fear your partner has been turned into Dracula.
Jack Handey

Next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham! You just slam the door behind him and blast off. He might call you on the radio and say he’s not Dracula, but you just say, ‘Think again, batman.’”
Jack Handey

I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.
Jack Handey

If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let’em go, because, man, they’re gone.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead all exscaped jail.

They were running down a hill trying to escape being caught by the cops, when they see a barn and decide to hide inside.

The brunette sees a bunch of sacks and say “lets hide inside the sacks”, all the girls oblige and hide in the sacks.

The police eventually get to the barn just to see if the prisoners might be hiding inside.

The cop opens the door and sees a bunch of sacks, he opens one of the sacks and sees some corn, and another sack is filled with potatoes, the cop then assumes the other sacks are just filled with potatoes and corn, but just to make sure he kicks a few of the sacks.

The first sack he kicks has the brunette in it, the cop kicks the sack and the girl say “meow”…and the cop calls back to his partner and says, “oh its just a cat”…

he kicks the next sack which the redhead is hiding in, and she goes “ruff ruff”, so the cop calls back to say it was just a dog.

He then kicks the sack with the blonde girl inside and she goes “potatoes”…

There are several men sitting around in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings. One of the men picks it up, and the following conversation ensues:

“Hello?”
“Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”
“Yes.”
“Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a beautiful mink coat. It’s absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?”
“What’s the price?”
“Only $1,500.00.”
“Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much … “

“Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman, and he gave me a really good price … and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year … “
“What price did he quote you?”
“Only $60,000 … “
“OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”

“Great! But before we hang up, something else … “
“What?”
“It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and saw the house we had looked at last year. It’s on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, acre of park area, beachfront property … “
“How much are they asking?”
“Only $450,000 - a magnificent price … and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover … “

“Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $420,000. OK?”
“OK, sweetie … Thanks! I’ll see you later!! I love you!!!”
“Bye … I do too … ”

The man hangs up, closes the phone’s flap, and raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present: “Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?

Deep within a forest a little turtle began to climb a tree.

After hours of effort he reached the top. Suddenly, he threw himself into the air, waving his front legs until crashing into the ground.

After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree, jumped, and fell to the ground again. The turtle repeated this process again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts.

Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.
“Dear,” she chirped, “I think it’s time to tell him he’s adopted.”

So I heard this joke when I was working a crappy summer job.Iit’s kind of long, but trust me it’s funny… at least to me.

John was working at a grocery store when a man comes up to him and asks “Can I buy just a half a head of lettuce?” John is some what annoyed by this question so he just says “Let me go ask my manager.” As he walks across the store to his manager he doesn’t realize that the man has followed behind him. John says, “Hey, I’ve got this jerk over here who wants to buy half a head of lettuce!” John soon realizes that the man is right behind him so he quickly says “and this guy wants to buy the other half.” the manager says that is fine and sends the customer to the register.

The manager then commended John, “Hey that was pretty quick thinking there, I like what I saw. Where are you from again?” John replies, “I moved out here from Minnesota but the only thing there are hookers and hockey teams.” The manager furiously says “Well my wife is from Minnesota!” to which John replies “Oh, really? what team does she play for?”

Okay so maybe you’ve heard it… did you smile though?

If this is not the most pure representation of being silly and funny or doesn’t make you smile and feel all warm inside, I truly don’t know what does it…

True Story:

I met my wife while we were both living in Ukraine for 2 years on a humanitarian mission. Neither of us chose to go to Ukraine but instead signed up for the program and were sent there, I from California, and her from Virginia. We ended up falling in love.

When we got back to the states, it was discovered that we had attended Sunday School each week together when we were 8 years old. Our families knew each other and some of our siblings had been good friends years ago but due to her dad’s military service, they had moved away. We had known each other since we were 8, but we had to be individually sent to the other side of the world in order to fall in love.

The office park where I work is covered in ice. The parking lot is pretty much a skating rink right now. Most people parked outside the lot to avoid actually trying to drive on the ice. My car has 4-Wheel Drive, so I made it all the way to the front door of my building just fine. I managed to slip as soon as I got in the building on the freshly waxed floors. Turns out the janitor got iced in and got bored and waxed the hallway 5 times before falling asleep. He bought me a coffee and some advil.

Okay, this is so silly, but it is my favorite joke:

Two muffins are baking in the oven.
Muffin #1: Wow, it sure is hot in here!
Muffin #2: Yikes, a talking muffin!

Okay, if that didn’t do it for you, check out these pictures from the “Let There be Light” exhibition that I was in last weekend. It involves outdoor light-focused art installations to celebrate the winter solstice. Just by coincidence it was also the brightest full moon of the year that night.

So instead of a cat video, here’s some Japanese milk commercials!

What is love? What is this longing in our hearts for togetherness? Is it not the sweetest flower? Does not this flower of love have the fragrant aroma of fine, fine diamonds? Does not the wind love the dirt? Is not love not unlike the unlikely not it is unlikened to? Are you with someone tonight? Do not question your love. Take your lover by the hand. Release the power within yourself. Your heard me, release the power. Tame the wild cosmos with a whisper. Conquer heaven with one intimate caress. That’s right don’t be shy. Whip out everything you got and do it in the butt. By Leon Phelps

One day I was driving down the street and saw a “rotund” homeless man pushing a shopping cart full of cans. On top of this rotund gentleman’s head was a baseball cap that said…No Money, No Honey. For the rest of the day I kept thinking about that hat, the bizarre sight and that rotund person. Was he an angel from God sent to remind me to appreciate what I have in my life or a sad soul who’d fallen on hard times and maybe wasn’t even aware of what the hat said. Either way, it didn’t matter cause all I wanted was that hat.

And I still do.
