Friday Funnies

Just a couple of funnies to start your weekend....

Every Thursday in the Washington Post they have an "Animal Watch" that lists cases where authorities had to be called for some reason or another. I've held on to this little gem for a while now. It still makes me laugh...

Snake Report Shrivels Up

QUARLES ST. NE, 4400 block, Jan. 11. A woman asked animal control to have a black snake removed from her kitchen cabinet. When an officer arrived, he discovered that the snake was a dried banana.

I emailed this to a couple of friends. One wrote back that this sounds like something she would find under a bunch of papers on her dining room table. That jogged my memory thinking do I actually have some old bananas under a pile of papers on my kitchen table and went to investigate. Here is what I found

Well, not quite the shriveled snake look yet. Not quite enough for banana bread either. Looks like the grapes will be going to the birds.

Then, my good friend and former blogger Cat59 sent this photo to me thinking Possumlady would appreciate it. Now, I don't know if this is true or not but I don't care. It makes me laugh and that's all that counts!

Have a safe and relaxing weekend everyone! Don't forget to laugh.

Funny post today! Hope you have a good weekend too Christine.

Watch out for the eagles with poor vision!

Wha. . .?? Did anyone think a possum was a cat?

As for the bananas--there's enough for a batch of muffins!

People do call 911 for the oddest reasons--like the woman last week who called to complain because MacDonalds was out of chicken McNuggets--really!

LOL! Those were both great. I can't believe the person who put up the flyer can't tell a cat from a possum! :D

Very funny! (This reminds me, though, that I have many over-ripe bananas in the freezer waiting to be made into banana bread!)

(PS - Word verification is "grattin" - mmmmm, cheeeese....)
