No Teeth Were Harmed In The Making Of This Post

7 Feb

Scratching around for something to write about that doesn’t involve my sore gums – at long last starting to heal so that I’m only crying three times a day now – I hit upon my old cuttings notebook and I thought I’d share a few more funnies with you.


An old Garfield cartoon, in which it is obvious that Jim Davis has been spying on me:

Jim: Nothing lasts forever

Garfield: Except whatever is in the back of the refrigerator


A cartoon strip called Animal Crackers, by Fred Wagner:

Scene: An aging gnu and two frogs in the grass.

Frog One to Gnu: Sit!…Sit!

The gnu ignores him.

Frog Two to Frog One: Don’t you know you can’t teach an old gnu dog tricks?


I always bin chain letters but this one really scared me; I don’t know where it came from:

This letter was started by a woman like yourself in the hope of bringing relief to tired and discontented women.  Just send a copy of this letter to five of your friends who are equally tired and discontented.  Then bundle up your husband or boyfriend and send him to the woman whose name appears at the top of the list.  When your name comes to the top of the list you will receive 16,337 men and one of them is bound to be better than the one you already have.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
