Joke 259

8 Dec

You have three days left to submit your Christmas cartoon or joke.  If you win and it’s funny enough, I might even send you your Maltesers unopened.


What do you get if you cross Father Christmas with a detective?

Santa Clues.

    oh no oh no oh no

    There is a wonderful rationalisation as to why the reindeer are female and therefore all incorrectly named. If I can find it I’ll send it to you.

    A father asked his son, Little Johnny, if he knew about the birds and the bees.

    “I don’t want to know!” Little Johnny said, exploding and bursting into tears. Confused, his father asked Little Johnny what was wrong.

    “Oh Pop,” Johnny sobbed, “for me there was no Santa Claus at age six, no Easter Bunny at seven, and no Tooth Fairy at eight. And if you’re telling me now that grown ups don’t really have sex, I’ve got nothing left to believe in!”

    Thank you for your 7 tips for new bloggers. What is the reason behind the 140 character rule? Are less too short to be picked up, or and more too long?
    How do you reach a specific audience like what I need for my blog looking at the causes for the differences between older Bibles like the KJV versus modern Bibles like the NIV?
    BTW. I can’t read what you say about yourself because of the cluttered background.
    God bless,
    Herman Grobler, Pretoria South Africa.

      Hi Herman!

      The 140 character rule is something to do with anything longer being mistaken for spam, I think.

      The best way to reach a specific audience is to look at those blogger who use similar tags, comment on their blogs, and they will return the visit.

      The most effective way to build your own audience is to be a good commenter on other blogs. It is time consuming but worth it.

      The cluttered background is just for December. If you hover over the words, they show up in green type. My About page is pretty detailed but here’s a quick fact for you: I lived in South Africa for 14 years 🙂 Sasolburg, Vereeniging, Jo’burg and Alberton.


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.
