More Monday Madness
(My kids will tell you – and so can I- that my title is "alliteration" – a word on last week’s English test. . . those education dollars at work)
I didn’t have to work on the farm this weekend. We had some friends over, and the husband went out and did what I normally would be doing (digging a trench for a faucet by the barn and piecing together water pipe – skinny stuff . . . a one-man job). Prince Farming was on the borrowed excavator digging a trench from a water source (broken pipe in the field) to the old barn for the water pipe to rest in (and not freeze during the winter). So I feel really blessed, and amazingly rested. And without a funny story for your reading pleasure.
Last Monday I shared a post about despair. For some reason my humor is sort of leaning toward the political genre, which is odd because politics and me just aren’t that close. I’m not a US citizen (nor am I here illegally, if you’re wondering ). I have a hard time following what’s going on and giving any kind of intelligent analysis. Actually – I probably have a hard time giving intelligent analysis anywhere in my life, but that’s a whole ‘nother post. Maybe it’s just that politics is the primary topic every time I turn on the radio. But every week I get this little video podcast that makes me smirk, or giggle, or laugh out loud, or sigh with a "I wish I could have thought that out and said it first." And sometimes, no matter how simplified it is, I just don’t get it. Or it doesn’t strike me all that funny. Which is okay too. Helping little minds understand big things, Uncle Jay has a great way ‘splaining things and I thought maybe you’d enjoy hearing a couple of my favorites. I would hazard a guess that it isn’t so much the politics that strike me as funny as the irreverence does. That’s probably more like it.
I haven’t watched this week’s video cast yet. But with everyone talking about the financial mayhem that we find ourselves in, I thought it would be appropriate to share a simplified version of what’s going on. Check this out.
Another one that is fairly popular (by vote of most clicks) is the congressional recess episode. It’s pretty funny too.
Hope you have a great week!
