Why Men Are Happier

He is a humor about  why guys are happier. Now girls, you know this is true and how much I love you, but guys just have it easy. Yes, yes, yes, it is NOT fair, but it is what it is. Of course, not all women fall into this trap, but at least most of the guys do. Hope this puts a smile on your sunshiny faces?

Men Are Just Happier People: Want Proof? What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5,000. Tux rent…

Bounded

Samson chained upon a wall
With his strength gave it all
Tumbled Temple with his might
Forever gone was his sight

Fire giver left in chains
Raptors feast on its remains
Gift of wisdom with the light
Humans freed now delight

Planets, moons, orbs in space
Fixed, aligned held in place
Nature’s pull on them so tight
Against it so the orbits fight

Bounded I am to this embrace
Tied my heart with its full grace
Hope eternal will alight
Honor holds me to its bite

Stupid & Obvious Things

This post deals with things that on the surface look totally acceptable, but when phrased a certain way, well are like kind of stupid. The remind me something George Carlin would have said or written, and some might even be his. Anyway, thanks Tom Feige for the forward. I hope these bring some chuckles to your already great day! Enjoy, I did. Warmly, Jeffrey

Stretch You Mind

Good morning world! OK, I know it is Fryday, and you have had a tiring week, and you just want to go drink Mai Thais, martinis and margaritas, but before you go off into the weekend, I thought I would humor you today with something that combines humor and, well, thinking! Of course, this will NOT be too tough, but I think you will enjoy it once you have been properly “caffeinated!” Anyway, so to make it more fun, I listed all the questions first, then again with the answers following. Some of these you might have seen before, but this is the first time I put the ALL together. Hope this NOT only stretches your mind, but your mouth into a smile as well. “Keep hanging by your thumbs and write when you find work (Mel Brooks).” Cheers!

No Sex Since 1955

A crusty old Marine Sergeant Major found himself at a gala event hosted by a local liberal arts college.

There was no shortage of extremely young idealistic ladies in attendance, one of whom approached the Sergeant Major for conversation.

'Excuse me, Sergeant Major, but you seem to be a very serious man. Is something bothering you?'

'Negative, ma'am. Just serious by nature.'

The young lady looked at his awards and decorations and said, 'It looks like you have seen a lot of action.'

'Yes, ma'am, a lot of action.'

The young lady, tiring of trying to start up a conversation, said, 'You know, you should lighten up a little. Relax and enjoy yourself.'

The Sergeant Major just stared at her in his serious manner.

Finally the young lady said, 'You know, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but when is the last time you had sex?'

'1955, ma'am.'

'Well, there you are. No wonder you're so serious. You really need to chill …
