When I Need A Laugh

There’s something wrong with my Plinky.com account, the site I use as a blogging prompt. I’m able to blog there  but unable to share it automatically with this blog here like I normally do. Oh well, I might have to recheck the settings. Anyways, here’s my answer to today’s prompt:

Websites are fun for a good laugh, when things are bringing you down and you are upset. Like there are lol cats & lol dogs. Assured to bring not just smiles but giggles, snickering and outright belly-busting laughter. Some people are just so talented with matching funny lines of words to the right picture and put together – genius! Some Youtube videos are also hilarious and there are series of videos from the same makers/uploader that make me laugh my ass off.

TV shows that are sure to make me laugh are Corner Gas, Friends, Seinfeld, and some others. I also find some stand up comics that are sure shot mirth inducing bets like Russell Peters, Danny Bhoy, George Carlin (RIP), Sugar Sammy and many more. All brilliant at making us laugh. Some movies are good too.

I don’t have a friend who makes me laugh as much as I do to my friends. But when I sit with my friends and my old team members I like to make them laugh. I can’t help it; I’ll crack jokes, tell them funny anecdotes & stories and rib tickling one liners that threaten to make them pee in their underwear. That’s just the way I am. I want my people to be happy and laughing and enjoying themselves. No sadness please.

McNugget That Looks Like Prez Washington

Heard this story? A three-year-old McDonald’s Chicken McNugget said to resemble George Washington has sold on eBay for $8,100, according to several news reports. Nebraska woman Rebekah Speight said in February that she was auctioning the McNugget to raise money for children at the Sioux City Family Worship Center to go to summer camp: total cost $15,000.

This is just great. There are, idiots or should I say rich idiots, who are willing to shell out money and lots of money for a small bit of meat, that they won’t be able to eat (if they do they might die, 3 year old nugget). They would then showcase that nugget in some glass case for people to see.

Speight said that during a McDonald’s visit with her kids three years ago, she almost trashed the uneaten McNugget before noticing a likeness to the country’s most distinguished forefather. She says that she looked down and laughed when she saw “this portrait of George Washington staring back at me.” She then stashed the McNugget in her freezer, she said. EBay took down the nugget at first, saying it violated its rules regulating expired food, but then the woman got an email saying the company was “willing to make exceptions to help your cause.” The McNugget drew 71 bids from 23 bidders, with bidding ending Monday morning. The auction had 44,795 views, with 1,610 people actively watching the proceedings.

So where’s my chicken tikka piece that looks like Mahathma Gandhi or burger patty that looks like Jawaharlal Nehru.
