Joke 64

27 May

A husband and wife were sitting in the living room discussing a “Living Will”.

“Just so you know,” he said, “I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine, taking fluids from a bottle.  If that ever happens, just pull the plug.”

His wife got up, disconnected the TV, and threw out all the beer.

Funny computer Andrew television  cartoon from September 13, 1995

This cartoon first appeared in 1995.  What I love about it is that it could have another panel: 2011 The World As Flat Again:

    So ironic that the vase of flowers are now on the floor…

    …and yes the tv’s have become the focus of some people’s lives more than we ever could have imagined or would have wanted, had we been able to see the full spectrum of consequences.

    That said… hypocrite moi, I do looove my compter LOL.

      I never noticed the vase! That is a delicious irony.

    So funny . . . and so sad. What would life be like without our addiction to screens? 😀

      It’s just the computer screen for me, these days. Not sure what would happen if I was unplugged…

    You cracked me up. I was sat here creased. My *AJ and his friend *DW came in from the kitchen to see what I was laughing so hard about. They are raiding my cupboards again. They ate all the Mackerel last time they did this, a family sized pack of peppered from ASDA, you know the one. I think they are doing Beans on Toast today, well I’m hoping anyway it’s cheaper. I’m keeping out the way so they don’t ask me to do it. I’ll just sweep up all the crumbs later.
    Sorry to babble, I need to chat to someone I think. Where do you live again…LMHO.
    Thanks for the giggle.
    Love and hugs.
    Lisa. xx 🙂

      I don’t believe I’ve ever met a child who ate mackerel 🙂

      I’m in Stockport.


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.
