Casual Friday Comes to an End

November 5, 2010 at 10:00 am (Casual Fridays)

OK folks, after many a Casual Friday joke session and funny photo, the Casual Friday’s will be over until further notice. Limited supplies of photos makes for a difficult weekly obsession, so here is to one last Friday hoo hah.

P.S. Another Weekly event will take it’s place, I just don’t know what yet ūüėČ

The Beatles above and to the left we have the Career Builder job fairy from Career Builder.

Star Wars fans will appreciate the above pic and no offense intended for  the pic on the right.

And that concludes our Casual Friday fun. Again no offense intended, I have nothing against fuller figured girls considering¬†I am one myself ūüôā Maybe.

Casual Friday Entertainment – the paraprosdokian

September 9, 2010 at 10:43 pm (Casual Fridays)

A paraprosdokian 

¬†(from Greek “para-“, meaning “beyond” and “prosdokia”, meaning “expectation”)
 is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is
surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to
reframe or reinterpret the first part.
 It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax.
For this reason, it is extremely popular among comedians and satirists.
Some paraprosdokians not only change the meaning of an early phrase, but
also play on the double meaning of a particular word, creating a syllepsis.

–¬†I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole
a bike and asked for forgiveness. 

–¬†¬† Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat
you with experience. 

–¬†¬† Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a
garage makes you a car. 

–¬†¬† The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it’s still on the list.¬†

–¬†¬† Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright
until you hear them speak. 

–¬†¬† If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.¬†

–¬† We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.¬†
   
–¬† War does not determine who is right – only who is left.¬†

–¬† Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a
fruit salad. 

–¬†¬† The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

–¬†¬† Evening news is where they begin with ‘Good evening’, and then proceed
to tell you why it isn’t.¬†

–¬†¬† To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is
research. 

–¬†¬† A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train
stops. On my desk, I have a work station. 

–¬† How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a
whole box to start a campfire? 

–¬† Some people are like Slinkies … not really good for anything, but you
can’t help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.¬†

–¬† Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can
train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

–¬†¬† I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted pay checks.¬†

–¬† A bank is a place that will lend you money, if you can prove that you
don’t need it.¬†

–¬† Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says “If an
emergency, notify:” I put “DOCTOR”.¬†

–¬†¬† I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.¬†

–¬†¬† I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with “Guess” on it…so I said
“Implants?”¬†

–¬†¬† Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars,
but check when you say the paint is wet? 

–¬†¬† Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street
with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy. 

–¬†¬† Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50
for Miss America ? 

–¬† Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a
successful man is usually another woman. 

–¬†¬† A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.¬†

–¬† You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to
skydive twice. 

–¬†¬† The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!¬†

–¬†¬† Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.¬†

–¬†¬† A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that
you will look forward to the trip. 

–¬†¬† Hospitality:¬† making your guests feel like they’re at home, even if you
wish they were. 

–¬†¬† Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
  
–¬†¬† Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.¬†

–¬†¬† There’s a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they
can’t get away.¬†

–¬†¬† I used to be indecisive. Now I’m not sure.¬†

–¬† I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lemon, and a
shot of tequila. 

–¬† When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department
usually uses water. 

–¬†¬† You’re never too old to learn something stupid.

–¬†¬† To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit
the target. 

¬†¬†– Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.¬†

–¬† Some people hear voices. Some see invisible people. Others have no
imagination whatsoever. 

  -A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it as when
you are in it. 

–¬†¬† If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some people have
more than one child? 

 РChange is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

–¬†¬† I discovered I scream the same way whether I’m about to be devoured by a
great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.

Fresh out of business school, the young man answered a want ad for an accountant. Now he was being interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small business that he had started himself. “I need someone with an accounting degree,” the man said. “But mainly, I’m looking for someone to do my worrying for me.”

“Excuse me?” the young accountant said.

“I worry about a lot of things,” the man said. “But I don’t want to have to worry about money. Your job will be to take all the money worries off my back.”

“I see,” the young accountant said. “And how much does the job pay?”

“I will start you at $85,000.”

“Eighty-five thousand dollars!” the young accountant exclaimed. “How can such a small business afford a sum like that?”

“That,” the owner said, “is your first worry.”
