Cheeky Boy!

Jack and Jill (nursery rhyme)

Spud was in his English class.  Someone had never heard of the word ‘pail’.  The teacher explained it was a bucket as in,

Jack and Jill
went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.

As she paused, Spud interjected,

Instead they found whiskey,
got a bit frisky
and now they have a daughter.

That’s my boy!

A Blog Is For Christmas, Not Just For Life

Christmas in the post-War United States

What to expect from The Laughing Housewife in December:

  • A decorated blog
  • Christmas jokes
  • Christmas cartoons
  • Christmas stories
  • Christmas pictures
  • Christmas anecdotes
  • A lot of blogs about Christmas
  • A lot of re-blogs about Christmas
  • A lot of giddiness on my part
  • A lot of lists (some naughty, some nice)
  • A list of lots of things to do, mostly involving wine and hysteria, though not necessarily in that order
  • Panic – it’s six days to Christmas month and I still have to find 25 Christmas jokes, Christmas cartoons, Christmas stories, Christmas pictures and Christmas anecdotes
  • Coloured fonts

If this has come as a surprise to you, then it’s clear you haven’t read my About page: 

Christmas and Maltesers must be done to excess; everything else is showing off.

I’ve just made a connection!  Christmas is red; Maltesers are red – I’m not a greedy pig when I eat seven boxes of Maltesers: I’m re-living Christmas. 

Now pass me a bucket; I feel a bit green.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! 

If April showers bring May flowers what do May flowers bring?


What sound does a space turkey make?

Hubble, Hubble, Hubble.
