Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Life certainly has its funny moments.

Funny isn’t it? I mean, one moment you think life is so predictable. You going to get up tomorrow morning (with a fair degree of certainty about when) and you predict what you will be doing from there. Then, along comes something completely unexpected and you wonder if anything is going to stay the same. Read the rest of this entry »

What is it about Aussies that’s so funny?

Funny is a relative thing. For starters, it depends where you live. For Australians, our unique way of calling a spade a bloody shovel is both confronting and endearing. Read the rest of this entry »

Do we look funny or silly in this pic?

It’s funny how comedy is changing. Back when I was a little lad, long before the likes of Kim Kardashian was a twinkle in her mother’s eye or a tilt in her dad’s slightly Armenian kilt, things were mightily different. Read the rest of this entry »

Funny When You Get It

Well I think it’s funny.

Isn’t it strange how what’s funny for one is totally boring for another? Like when you’re at the movies and see the joke in something done, but few others get it apart from you. Read the rest of this entry »

Funny By Nature

Funny?

Funny how some people can be witty yet generally serious. I’ve met surgeons and lawyers like that. Then there are those who get a laugh because they’ve got a joke timed for anything and everything they poke fun at. But as for me, well I don’t fit those molds. Read the rest of this entry »

Funny college farewell.

Hooray! No More School

Adds a funny spin to celebrating the end of college, doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »

Funny But Are You Having First World Problems Too?

February 7th, 2012 ~ Est. reading time: 1 min, 16 secs

Well it didn't seem that funny at first. But now it is kind of crazy.

My eldest son was busy poking fun at our first world problems this morning. Here we were, stuck because we didn’t have dishwashing powder!
