Default Re: Something Silly

Just something silly......
------------------
Ken and his wife Edna went to the state fair every year, and every year Ken would say, 'Edna, I'd like to ride in that helicopter.'

Edna always replied, 'I know Ken, but that helicopter ride is fifty bucks. And fifty bucks is fifty bucks!'

One year Ken and Edna went to the fair, and Ken said, 'Edna, I'm 75 years old now. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.'

To this, Edna replied, "Ken that helicopter ride is fifty bucks, and fifty bucks is fifty bucks!'

The pilot overheard the couple and said, 'Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and don't say a word, I won't charge you a penny! But if you say just one word, it's fifty dollars’.

Ken and Edna agreed and up they went.

The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Ken and said, 'By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!'

Ken replied, 'Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Edna fell out. But you know, "Fifty bucks is fifty bucks!'

i guess this is tragic, but their choice of hunting hours and clothing was silly, imo

i guess she let out a big WOHOOOO in that car...probably a belch as well

i'm actually surprised that hubby wasn't the one mistaking her for a moose...

you could probably jump ahead to about the 5 minute mark...enjoy

this could be sexier than the commercial itself

OMG, her hair is much worse than mine from the 80s! Unbelievable! I have to show my son, who was just last week making fun of my high school sophomore picture I have naturally wavy hair, so it didn't take much work to get it puffy, lol.

My silly something.

A young man in the the US won a ticket to watch Superbowl. He was overjoyed, he loved Superbowl but could never get a ticket. On the day, he arrived at the stadium and found his seat, but it was way up in row ZZZ and the view was not great. He noticed an empty seat way own front. He waited for 10 minutes and when nobody sat there he decide to nip down. An old gentleman was in the next seat, the young man asked if anybody was sitting there. "No" said the old gent "please sit down." The young man was overjoyed and told the old gent how amazed he was that nobody was sitting there. "The seat was for my wife, who has died." Said the old gent, "we were married for 50 years and saw our first Superbowl on our honeymoon and have seen every Superbowl since, this is my first one without my wife." The young man expressed his sorrow and asked the old gent why he had not offered the ticket to a relative or close friend. "I would have done." Said the old boy, "but they are all at the funeral."

Really, a lot of GL tunes would make great horse names.

But then, anytime I've ever bet on a horse it's been a "race among the ruins"
