|11:14 am - Funniest Thing Ever|
For some reason, I go through these phases where something is the "Funniest Thing Ever." Like, for awhile, it was the GlamGuns weaponry, and then for awhile it was the LOLTheist cross between LOLcats and religious art. Of course, LOLCats took its place in there as well. (I still think all of those are funny, by the way.)
Then there's this one, which made me about die laughing, but will sadly only be funny to Terry Pratchett fans, and possibly not all of those. I think it's the juxtaposition of the Agnus Dei artwork and the Pratchett reference that really just makes this for me.
Of course, there are the Despair, Inc. "de-motivational" posters which have always been amusing.
It just seems as though *everything* can be made funnier by putting it in the context of one of those "motivational" posters.
Anyone else go through phases like this? What's your current "Funniest Thing Ever?"
Or is it just me?
I'm still having fun with the cat macros...
oh, and have a poster.
Oh my God, Funniest Thing EVER!!!!!
I go through phases like that too, but I can't think of an example just now. That is funny though. I had a late night, broken sleep and no nap today so brain are brokeded.
Hehehe! It's okay. *pets you*
Is there such a thing as an LOLmotivational poster?
Does this count?
Almost, but I'll take it. *L*
Ooh, would you call it ... LOLivation?
Oh yeah, that was a good one.
I must have those magnets.
OMG! I've seen a couple of those, but not all of them. AWESOME! I love "HOPE." haha
There are a few others, I just have to fin them... :P
Where's my sacrificial cow!? Hee!
A bumper sticker spotted by my friend who lives in rural Utah:WWJD
for a Klondike bar?

Hahahaha! Yeah, our houseguest had that on a T-shirt the other day and I about died.
Then I started totally craving Klondike bars.
That's even better, because I didn't know your houseguest had seen one of these, let alone has a shirt with that on it, and your houseguest is how I found your site.
(I'd introduce myself, but as said houseguest knows, I try to keep my real name and this blog dissociated. It's a pleasure to almost meet you, even so.)
Heh. The pleasure's mine.
Houseguest has the best T-shirts.
Except he doesn't have the one with Moses holding up the stone tablets with lightning flying and "RTFM ... n00bs" in big letters. That one's all mine.
Or the one with Rubens Adam and Eve with "WTF? UR NOT STEVE!" on it.
Or the one that says "Guns don't kill people: Kids who play video games kill people!"
Or the other one my husband likes to wear to the firing range, "Please don't hurt me: I'm unarmed."
So many good T-shirts. So little time.
I think my adviser and her wife need "WTF? UR NOT STEVE!" except theirs should read "WTF? UR NOT MADAM!"

Oh, do the fundamentalists say "It was Adam and Eve, not Madam and Eve" as well as "It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve?" I hadn't heard the "Madam" one. I'll have to look around for an appropriate pic to caption with that. This one seemed perfect for the "Steve" one because Adam looks like he's saying something to Eve and pointing a finger at her. Maybe "No, I'm not Madam. U got a problem wid dat?" hahaha!
Hehe. "Madam and Eve."
Oh God, how I love religious artwork.
I haven't heard "Madam and Eve" before -- I was just trying to come up with something more apropos for a Lesbian couple.
I love religious satire myself and am having a fine time this weekend in Utah with an ex-Mormon friend and her immediate family. Much irreverence all around. For example, here's a family favorite:
Oh my Lord, that made me bust out laughing! Shall I assume houseguest has seen that one, 'cause if not, I seriously need to email that one to him.
That is today's Funniest Thing Ever™.
For which, my thanks.
Houseguest hasn't seen this from me -- I scanned my copy and mailed it to one of the kids here in Utah a while ago. Feel free to email it. I'm glad you like it!
I sent it to him and he was appropriately amused.
But then, I mean, how could one NOT be?
Amused, that is.
Indeed! Speaking of amused, I have shared your childfree saying with a number of friends and we've enjoyed snickering over it.
Here's another irreverent contribution:
(My mother sent me that card. I sent her back a fridge magnet that reads "I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the entire time!")
Oh, man, that's awesome! BWAHAHAHA! (Both the cartoon and the "sofa.")
I'm about to put up a slightly less potentially offensive version of the childfree saying, to wit: "I took the battery out of my biological clock and put it in my Rolex."
That's for, like, all us successful career wimmens.
Which, actually, I don't have, but if I did, by golly, it would have a battery in it.
As a side note, someone has actually bought the "maternity T-shirt" version of the biological clock/vibrator saying, which I think is almost the ultimate in hilarity.
Oh, score! You must be so proud.
The Rolex version sounds nice -- or at least polite -- but as someone who has been hassled again and again about not having kids I like the shock value of the original.
Here's my explanation of why I shouldn't have kids (aside from the not-so-minor matter of not wanting them):
(I'm the guy in this one.)
