The funnies often get me in trouble. My funnies NOT theirs, if you get my drift. The Boy Scouts did not appreciate my 'creative knot tying' demonstration at the St. Joseph's Hall. I thought it was hilarious! I was asked not to return. Sister Joanne did not see the humor in my ring-leading the early morning 'attack' on the sanctity of her sixth grade classroom... after school for a week copying the dictionary. Whew! I told Mrs. Lyons that I had already ventured into puberty and the voice change, but she didn't believe me. My solo of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" will live in infamy in Lincoln Junior's Room 310. I had to prove to Father Graham that I had had just about enough of his falsetto-voiced tales of exorcism. I thought my impersonation was a 'comedy-connection' riot. Needless to say he didn't see it the same way. A few of my collegiate capers were classics. Firecrackers in cigarettes, radios flying out windows, and the night I commandeered the PA system after midnight in the girls' dormitory(@Nazareth College) in a vain attempt to get a date. Don't believe me? Ask SG... he was there. Like I've always said trouble seems to follow me. I like the funnies. Do you?

Yes I do, just as long as they are not too often directed at me. Great post Birdman.ReplyDelete
it seems more that "trouble" is your middle name...or at least "mischief". i used to love the funnies. now, not so much. do you suppose that means i'm losing my sense of humor?ReplyDelete
Great post Birdman!ReplyDelete
Thanks Birdman for the chuckle this morning, I needed that!ReplyDelete
I enjoy the funnies. I'm not good at it myself but I tend to surround myself with people who are.ReplyDelete
i have no doubt you've been a pistol your entire life! :)ReplyDelete
Yes I love the 'funnies' ---but love it when I'm playing the joke on someone else and don't like it much when it gets played on me!!!!!ReplyDelete
Kids these days cannot do anything like that. No matter what is done or said, someone gets offended and then kids get in trouble. There's not much 'funny stuff' going on these days...
I heard on TV today that a 9 yr. old child got suspended from school and has a 'sexual harrassment' report on his permanent record ----simply because he told his teacher that she was CUTE...... Puh-lease....
I am not surprised you were getting tales of exorcism! What a devil.ReplyDelete
Why, Birdman, I am shocked. Absolutely shocked.ReplyDelete
