Funny Quotes and Sayings

August 7th, 2012 ~ Est. reading time: 2 mins, 48 secs

Some funny quotes and sayings aren’t worth the screen color they’re written in.

Here’s to funny quotes and sayings for breaking convention! Ironically, that old expression, “Laugh and the whole world laughs with you…” doesn’t apply.  More likely, only 50% will laugh, 20% will smile quietly, and the rest? Well they’ll merely harrumph at the stupidity of the thing.

Still I do enjoy sharing funny quotes and sayings. Always have. Well, not always. Back when I was a baby, I was more interested in my mother blowing raspberries on my stomach (so I can say I have always been interested in them). But enough of silly noises and vibrating tummies! Here’s a list of funny quotes and sayings that you can trot out at parties to make everyone look at you and make you wish you weren’t there. Hmm. Perhaps it’s best you keep these to yourself:
