MAJOR Make Me Laugh Monday

Yep - guess what the prizes are for today's game of Make Me Laugh Monday?? MMM HMMM - Memento Mall stuff!!!

If you're new to MMLM, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post that makes me giggle! Keep it 100% clean, of course!

And if there are enough funny responses there will be many winners, so if you have been saving some funnies for today, lay em on me..

Here are a few pics while you're thinking of a funny. First, when I got home, on the way back from the airport, I see this.

That's right - a Ho Bus. It was driven by a young girl, and also said Ho Bus on the front. I have no way to explain this, but it had to be documented.

Next - under the "Fun things you find in your laptop bag" category - there's this.Yay - I get to wear a bat ring today!

Then, two cuties from the boards. Love the non-traditional Christmas color combo...And this ADORABLE gingerbread house which looks pretty simple to make!So, in my best Clint Eastwood voice ...

"Hey punk - it's Monday - you feel funny today? Go ahead, MAKE ME LAUGH!"

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

Want to see my other blog?


  1. Lydia, I have nothing funny to share with you today. I'm still trying to recover from an awesome time at Convention and wake up this morning. I just wanted to say how sad I was to miss coming to your party at Squatters and meeting you in person. I'm so glad that Amy found you in the bathroom on Saturday. You don't know how excited I was to get my Maddie pin! Just ask Amy, I almost kissed her! Hopefully we'll have a chance to meet another time. HUGS!

  2. Well, I hope this little video of my 2 dobes makes you chuckle... they certainly entertain us!

    The video shows our younger (black) male 'talking' (aka. trying to get attention/toys/play/whatever from) to our older (red) male...

  3. Lydia, I really didn't start following your posts until recently when I started reading your tweets from are so fresh and funny, now I'm hanging on every word!

    Here's my funny: this is my kitten, Gus. Hope it makes you laugh...

  4. Hey Lydia! Thanks again for your posts during the convention! You always have great ideas and you are so funny! Loved the "Ho Bus"!

    Here's my MMLM:
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes! :)

    Thanks again for your great blog!

  5. HA! - Just popping in to say the MMLM is off to a great start! I hope the videos become a tradition!! :)

  6. Hi there, I have a funny, I have 7 kids, thats not the funny but it really could be. My youngest is 10 and he is autistic and his mind is always thinking.

    So one night he was sleeping with grandma and he announced that he thinks he is ready for a girlfriend, she said "you are" and he said yes but he needs to build a shed in our backyard. She asked why a shed and he "Grandma, there just to many people around and I have to have some privacy to make out!" What does a ten year old know about "making out" two weeks ago he was going to marry me...LOL

  7. I'm never good at remembering clean jokes - so lolcats are my go-to for a clean laugh.

    Enjoying your blog!

  8. Your blog made me laugh so hard I had tears running down my leg.

  9. My supevisor called in to the office one morning and said she and her husdand were running late because of a dogfight. So I tell everyone in the office about our supervisor and a dogfight. All of us immediately thought of their terror of a dog Rosemarie. What a sweet name for a Westie, huh...Rosemarie has a rapsheet you see. She's been busted by Animal Control and has bitten people before. She escapes her owner's property as often as she can. She lures you in with that sweet face and then WATCH OUT. Before you know it, she's out the door and down the street.

    When our supervisor came in we all followed into her office with concern about Rosemarie in a dogfight. She looks at me and said, "Mary, I said I was running late because Alan had to stop at the JOB SITE not that there had been a dogfight.

    Ok, so my hearing is going...

  10. I made this, just for you:

  11. hey, quit making fun of my bus!!! got to find someway to pay the bills these days!!

  12. This is a pretty funny pic of my Boston when he was a bite-y puppy.

    They sell this stuff at Petsmart and it's supposed to keep your pet from chewing stuff.

    Well, this is the reaction that our Boston had to it.


  13. One evening a husband, thinking he was being funny, said to his wife, 'Perhaps we should start washing your clothes in 'Slim Fast'. Maybe it would take a few inches off of your butt!'

    His wife was not amused, and decided that she simply couldn't let such a comment go unrewarded.

    The next morning the husband took a pair of underwear out of his drawer. 'What the heck is this?' he said to himself as a little 'dust' cloud appeared when he shook them out.

    'April', he hollered into the bathroom, 'Why did you put talcum powder in my underwear?'

    She replied with a snicker. 'It's not talcum powder; it's 'Miracle Grow'!!!!! !

    Lydia, thanks so much for keeping us up to date at convention. I would have loved to have been there.
    Hope this one makes you laugh.

  14. I laughed so hard many times watching this video. I hope you think it is as funny as I do. And for those of you who might be tempted to go to'T. Ignore that part! :)

  15. My daughter loves country music. Myself....I am more of a pop music fan. One day she switched the radio to the country station without asking. I said to her " know country music sounds much better when it's played backwards.". She replies "Why Mom?"....I say "because then the poor singing fool gets his wife back, his house back, his dog back and his money back" and then I press the button for my pop music to go back on!!!

  16. Love your blog! Here is my joke for today:

    A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and claims that her body hurts wherever she touches it.

    "Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."

    The redhead takes her finger, pushes on her left knee and screams in pain. Then she pushes her elbow and screams in even more. She pushes her stomach and screams and then she pushes her ankle and screams even louder. Everywhere she touched made her scream.

    The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you?

    "Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde."

    "I thought so," the doctor said. "Your finger is broken."

  17. The only thing I can think of today is when my youngest son started picking on me again for something I said this last winter. I was trying to tell my boys to go shovel the snow but what I said guys need to go schnevel. I'm horrible about mixing words together. *shaking my head at myself*

  18. This one made my ribs tickle!

    On the first day of school, a first grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents." !

    Thanks for the Convention updates, looked like fun!

  19. There is a story that always makes me laugh, and demonstrates the need to proof reading before sending and email.

    A friend of mine worked in the HR department at a company. A new employee recently was hired and it was her job to collect a Void cheque to set up the auto-payment for him. So she sent the following email:

    Dear John,

    Welcome to Such and Such company. I look forward to meeting you. Please come by my office so that we can get acquainted and don't forget to bring with you a blank cheque so that you can get paid.


    Thankfully she re-read the letter before sending. Because instead of a P in Paid she had typed an L!! Puts a whole new spin on the letter doesn't it??? Spell check didn't catch it of course, because it was not spelled wrong. Yikes!

    Have a great Monday. Hope you laugh!

  20. Ack! I shared on here earlier and it seems it did not post! Well, it wasn't as funny as the others anyway, so I think I'll go share it on FB now. LOL!

  21. Okay Lydia, I can't make you laugh, but you sure made me laught. A "ho" Salt Lake City. I don't think so! How funny. I am glad you had a great time. Here's to a great week! Erin

  22. I am still laughing about this!! Thanks for helping me remember!

    In prepping for convention, I found out that I had seriously underestimated my adhesive quantities. I called upon my good friend Lisa who came to the rescue!

    I left her a quick comment on her Facebook again thanking her for saving my keister with the adhesive.

    Shortly afterwards, I read this comment:
    "Lisa, if I have problems with my keister please don't give me any adhesive. If half of it wants to fall off I'm going to let it!"


  23. the one that pops to mind today is recently i was in the car with my kiddies and my youngest was home supposedly not feeling well. Well as she was singing and bouncing around i began to question said belly ache and i looked at my youngest (who immed stopped bouncing around when she saw me looking)and said- so honey, let's be honest are you REALLY sick or were you just wanting to stay home with me today. well she got very indignant at the thought and she told me quite haughtily 'mom, i am not the boy with the wolf and the sheep!' i laughed sooooo hard and was glad to hear the story of the boy who cried wolf was heard by them during one of my lectures tee hee

  24. Thanks for sharing all the Convention goodness with us, Lydia! Bring on 2010. The SU demo recruitment drive sounds big time. Seriously, the lengths you gals will go to - planting a scary lizard on your porch to scare us off from picking up our goodies, so we'll sign ourselves up as demos! Positively brilliant! Afraid i'm not the best one to make you laugh, let alone on a Monday! Thanks for all the great updates. Cara

  25. I tried on a new coral colored shirt the other day in the Target changing room & stood in front of my 3 little girls, 8, 6 &5, and asked
    "So... what'd'ya think? I'm not sure I like it...."

    My 5 year old IMMEDIATELY smiled & said she loved it

    "because you look like a sausage mama, and papa LOVES sausage & you wanna look pretty for papa right?"

    The whole changing room erupted with laughter from every stall. Needless to say, I did NOT buy the shirt, but at least gave a few women a smile for the day, as well as a warning to stay away from that shirt as well. :)) Michelle Wallace, Belvidere

  26. PS- love all the fun you have on your blog!! Its very contagious :)) Michelle W.

  27. I went to get my hair trimmed. I went to Great Clips- so obviously I didn't want to spend a lot of money...... actually that's the only place I go. I sit down and the lady is asking me what I want- she starts looking at my hair, while standing behind me. She picks up some of my hair and goes "Holy crap, what happend to your hair?" Um- what do you mean??? "Well, it looks horrible." I then had to look at her and say, "you cut it last time...." That's my story. I really didn't think I was walking around looking so bad.....happy Monday! You just got to laugh at that.

  28. You have a great blog. I have to say yours is one of the best. This is the only funny thing I've heard in a while. It's long, but it made me giggle. Enjoy!!!

    Be Careful What you wish for:::

    A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.

    The waitress asks them for their orders.

    The man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke,' and turns to the ostrich, 'What's yours?'

    'I'll have the same,' says the ostrich.

    A short time later the waitress returns with the order 'That will be $9.40 please,' and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.

    The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke.'

    The ostrich says, 'I'll have the same.'

    Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

    This becomes routine until the two enter again. 'The usual?' asks the waitress.

    'No, this is Friday so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad,' says the man.

    'Same,' says the ostrich.

    Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, 'That will be $32.62.'

    Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.

    The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?

    'Well,' says the man, 'several years ago I was cleaning the attic I found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.'

    'That's brilliant!' says the waitress. 'Most people would ask for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!'

    'That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,' says the man..

    The waitress asks, 'What's with the ostrich?'

    The man sighs... pauses and answers, 'My second wish was for a chick with long legs and who agrees with everything I say.'

  29. Ok... OK... I couldn't resist adding to the blond jokes... cos I am one these days. What's the definition of Artificial Intelligence..... a blonde that dies her hair brown!

    Now... I have a cat story for you... true one.... My cat Bailey is one smart cat. He can pull open every door in every cupboard in the house, regardless of the type. So..... nice job Bailey. Except..... well... one night he opened the cupboard in the basement and went in the door. The door closed behind him. Next thing I know, he's yowling at the top of his lungs. He couldn't get out! So he's worked out how to pull open the door... but obviously his "push the door open, you big hairy twit" button doesn't compute in his brain!

    thanks for all the great updates from convention

  30. My youngest son was four years old (and well versed with technology) when we took a trip tent camping up the Pacific coast. The second morning we woke up and were having a pleasant family conversation when he suggested we play a game he had just invented. He meticulously outlined the rules of the game and we got started. Suddenly he stopped mid-sentence and stood motionless. We each offered our own endings. After a moment he ended his silence with this emphatic declaration, "No, no,'s loading!"

  31. i don't have much this monday. but my little one cracked me up the other day.

    daddy and went to walk back to his paper - sharpened pencil point up. in the interest of safety, DH told him to turn the pencil around when he walks.

    the little guy looked at him for a moment and then slowly turned his whole body in a circle.

    his look said it all - we were crazy!!

  32. I absolutely love reading about your adventures in real life. This "Ho Bus" tops my all time favorite list - The Bee Story/Pedicure Gully-washer are always going to be tops for me but "Ho Bus" comes in a close second.

    My funny for today is recently at a cookout with family and friends - Aunt Dawn's step dad had his little black toy poodle "Buffy" there. Buffy is the sweetest little girl ever but she's advanced in age and can't hear a lick. So my friend Wendy's little 4 year old boy, Gavin is chasing the dog around with its toy in its mouth, "Buffy give me the toy", "Buffy give me the toy" and the dog keeps running and running never even giving Gavin a glimpse of acknowledgement. So Gavin's grandma Barb tells him, "Gavin, Buffy is deaf", and to this the 4 year old begins screaming at the top of his lungs leaning toward the dogs ears, "BUUUFFFFFYYYY GIVE ME THE TOY!!!!!"....Buffy, still oblivious to Gavin's please does nothing but keeps right on running with the toy. We all busted out in laughter.

  33. I guess what's funniest of all is that I realized on Wednesday that my post on Tuesday was no longer Make Me Laugh Monday. Whoops. I hope you still laughed on Tuesday too!


  34. here's one of my favs...

    a gal (she could be me) is trying to put together a puzzle and can't do...she is FRUSTRATED and asks for help.

    blond: i can't put this puzzle together
    friend: hmmm....what's it supposed to be a picture of?
    blond: a tiger
    friend: the problem is that it's not a puzzle - it's frosted flakes. :)

    have a great week!

  35. I have no funny comment, 'cause there is no way on God' green Earth that I can compete with a Ho bus!!!! :D omg - I am cracking up over that one! welcome home!
