Let’s Have a Caption Contest!

Headless Female

Let’s have some fun this week! I took this picture of a headless women’s washroom sign and figured we could have some fun with a caption contest. I’ve even decided to chip in a prize for this one.

I’ll do a random drawing from all the entries and maybe create a meme out of the one that makes me laugh the hardest. I have decided to donate a $25 gift card to Chapters/Indigo as the prize. The only catch is that the card is only good in Canada. That doesn’t mean my American friends can’t play along though, so please feel free to comment with your best captions as well.

To enter, simply leave your caption in the comments below and I’ll draw the winner on Thursday morning. Good Luck and please don’t hold back on your captions!

Congrats to the winner, Michele!

Batman, Superman, Super Mario & The Avengers Walk Into a Cafe

Superman Mario Batman HISHE

I want to thank Rebecca from A Little Bit Of Momsense for posting a link to the “How It Should Have Ended” Youtube page the other day, because it gave me hours of hilarious videos to watch. On top of that, there are a couple of kid friendly Super Mario videos that my kids can;t get enough of.

Seriously, they make me watch the two Mario videos about 10 times a day. The great thing is that I laugh every time and it’s an excuse for my kids to want to cuddle up to their Dad. I wanted to share the two videos we watch and I apologize for the hours you waste afterwards on their Youtube page and website…

Sometimes Parenting Means Eating Froot Loops From The Floor In The Bathroom

Kelloggs Froot Loops

You’re probably thinking “link bait” on this one, right? Unfortunately, for me, the title is 100% accurate. Let me tell you why I was forced to eat my delicious Kellogg’s Froot Loops from the floor in the bathroom…

I guess I should start by answering the obvious first question: Yes, I am a 34 year old man/husband/father and I still occasionally enjoy a bowl of sugary Froot Loops. While we’re on the subject, once every weekend I even let my kids have a bowl of it. There it is. I am a terrible father and role model.

Now, where were we??? Oh yes, the eating cereal from the bathroom floor thing.

You see, I am a firm believer that crunchy cereal is meant to be enjoyed while it is still in a semi crunchy state. Otherwise, why would it begin crunchy in the first place? It would just come in a can, like soup, and we would either drink it or continue eating it with a spoon as we do now. Of course, that would just be ridiculous.

There is, in fact, an art to cereal eating that I have decided not to bore you with at this time. That being said, one of the key components to enjoy a perfect bowl of cereal is the ability to eat it immediately after the milk has been poured. This becomes difficult when your two year old, almost potty trained, daughter yells “I have to go pee-pee!” as she runs to the bathroom.

What else was I supposed to do? I followed quickly behind her, bowl in hand, as we took our usual places. I can’t say it was my ideal eating conditions but damn if that wasn’t a delicious bowl of cereal!

Have you ever been stuck between a Pot and a Hard Place? Share your story in the comments!

Cheers!

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things: Impractical Jokers

It’s a strange occurrence when you stumble upon a TV show that you have never seen, nor heard about before, that makes you laugh so hard that you wake up your sleeping wife. Well, I was fortunate enough to have that happen to me the other day and I have been infecting others with it, ever since!

The show is called, Impractical Jokers, and follows four friends who compete against each other in a series of humiliating yet hilarious dare challenges. The one who backs out of the most dares, must perform a solo humiliation at the end of each episode and I’m not sure I have ever laughed so hard in my life.

The show airs on TruTV but I have no idea what that is, probably because I’m Canadian, so I watch it on TVTropolis. I don’t really have much more to add, except to say that you should definitely be watching this show if you like to laugh until your sides ache. You can also find these guys on Twitter @TruTVJokers.

I’ve attached one of my favourite clips below and I hope you’ll come back and tell me what you thought.

Cheers!

The Most Talented Cat In The World

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am not a cat person. I do not own a cat and I will most likely never own a cat. The only exception I have seen so far is the cat in the video below. If he becomes available, I may jump in to the bidding war that will ensue.

My favourite show on television right now is Game of Thrones. I know, I know, the book junkies hate that they “ruined” this story by turning it into a show and it is nothing like the books. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I am not a huge book person either!

I like things that entertain me and Game of Thrones has provided me with countless hours of entertainment, which is all I need!

Back to my friend, the Cat! When I see something that makes me cry with laughter, I sometimes feel the need to share that with people. Now that I have a space to do that, I would like to share this video of a cat singing the theme to Game of Thrones and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

On the other hand, I may just been really tired when I watched it…. Either Way, Enjoy!

Happy Hump Day! Cheers!

The Never Ending Knock Knock Joke

 

 

You’ve heard it a million times before, “Knock, Knock!” “Who’s There?” and so on and so forth.

Rarely, if ever, are they funny enough to warrant even a phony giggle. Even the dirty adult ones aren’t overly funny.

That all changes when the joke comes out of the mouth of a small child, doesn’t it? We roar with laughter as the punchline rolls out, as if it’s the funniest thing we’ve ever heard in our lives.

The funny thing about it, for me at least, is that the laughter is completely genuine. Something about the fact that your child understands the humour in it, is comforting and hilarious at the same time.

Almost as if you have done your job as a parent by teaching your kid the lighter side of life and that being funny is okay.

That brings me to today’s post. My son, at age 4, has learned his very first Knock, Knock joke. In true child form, he immediately forgot it, which brought on this video of him reciting what may be the longest Knock, Knock joke of all time.

Enjoy!

PS – He was trying to do the one that ends with “Orange you glad I didn’t say Banana”. I tell you this because there is no way you would have guessed it from this….

Way to go buddy! Better than Daddy could do!

Cheers!
