February Funny Friday

Groucho Marx once said that he wouldn't care to belong to any club that would have him as a member and, generally I'd probably agree with that (mostly because no sane person has ever asked me to join their club ...) but there ARE exceptions.

There's a group of blogger who once a month come together to caption a photo that one of them has submitted.

Last month Angela from Sanity Waiting to Happen asked me if I fancied joining in (she is clearly insane ... just saying ...).  

Did I? DID I?? Well, yes, I did ...

Anyway ...

We all need to post this at the same time which is 10am Eastern Time. Got to say, that threw me a bit as we are on Greenwich Mean Time but a quick google assures me that we are 5 hours ahead and so I need to post this at 3pm. Hopefully this is right and I've scheduled the post for that time (hence my practise scheduling last week!).

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

13 - Sanity Waiting to happen.jpg

I've decided to call this cat Simon because, well because I've never had a cat called Simon ...

1. So you call and you just expect me to come running? Buy a dog lady - I'll get back to you later ...

2. Having spent some time checking out the back of wardrobe Simon concluded that C S Lewis was mistaken and it seemed far more likely to him that Narnia might be up here.

3. Simon decided a tactical retreat was in order while the humans argued about who exactly had eaten a hole through the centre of the chocolate cake.

4. As you can see, I am neither up nor down - 'If only he'd thought to ask a cat' Simon mused then that Grand Old Duke could have given ten thousand men the day off.

5. Simon had absolutely no idea who had flushed the dog down the toilet again and what's more he didn't wish to discuss it ...

Incidentally, a previously unknown known fact.

For ages I misread Angela's surname as Wright when in fact it's actually Weight which means that Sanity Waiting to Happen is probably like a really clever play on words incorporating Angela's surname unlike the name of my blog which is basically FACTUAL.

BUT if I WERE to rename my blog in a really clever way based on my surname (which is Mac for those not in the know) then maybe I'd call it 'What lies beneath' or 'It's a Cover Up' or something like that which isn't really a clever play on words at all ... and doesn't actually incorporating my surname ... or... or sound quite as good as Angela's actually ...

I always pick a favorite but you've stumped me, I can't. LOVE them all, laughed from beginning to end. Great post.

Natashalh said...

Ahaha. Love 2 and 3! And I never would have guessed that a cat could go up an attic ladder like that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog recently!

Tamara Gerber said...

I hear you on scheduling the correct publish time - I am an hour ahead of you in Switzerland!

Loved your captions, especially the chocolate cake and the dog flush. Ouch!

Nice to meet you - hope to see you back next month!

Jules B said...

Love your captions! I hope you participate more in the future! Thank you for all the laughs! I would have to say number one is my favorite. I hope your weekend is fantastic!

Michele Marriott said...

Welcome to Funny Friday! Your captions were great. When my son first saw the photo, he said "It looks like Aslan took the attic stairway to Narnia". Great minds...

Angela Weight said...

I am laughing SO loud right by myself, sitting here reading your captions, which are also clearly insane...which is why I instantly liked you so much. I can't decide which is my favorite. They're all so clever. Maybe the Narnia one. Or the Grand Ole Duke of York one. I have to read them again so I can laugh more.

And thanks so much for your analysis of my name. It's what I married into, darn it! Every day I have to explain to people, "It's Weight, like 'you've lost weight." Then they laugh uncomfortably and call me Mrs. Wright again as if I'd been joking about the whole thing.

In thinking about your name, I've got the Miss Mary Mac Mac Mac song stuck in my head now. Thanks!

Robin Allen said...

Ha! "Buy a dog, lady." Heehee

Sarah (The Momisodes) said...

Hi from one Sarah to another.
I totally read all of your post in a British accent. Hope that's okay. lol

Loved the captions! Welcome to the fun!

Holly Hollyson @ Full of Beans and Sausages said...

You make me piss. Number 4 is my very favourite.

R Dawn said...

Welcome to FF, love the dog flush

Eileen B. said...

Flush the dog, lol! Love the captions and I think the name of your blog is awesome as it is! No, people do not eat enough fudge :)

Kate N said...

Hi, loved the captions :) at the mention of your name all I could think was 'Mac daddy will make you jump, jump!' By the legendary song writers Kriss Kross. Lol. My surname would have my blog being a Flintstones catchphrase! Nyaaba dabba doo! I'm so glad I went with narcissism instead :) oh! And btw I have finished my PIF gift for you! Exciting times....

Sarah said...

Wow, thank you every one for your comments :-)

Karen, you HAVE to choose, it's the LAW!! (kidding ...)

Cats get EVERYWHERE Natasha!

Tamara - the STRESS huh?

Thanks Jules, hope you had a great weekend too!

Michele, they do indeed :-)

What can I say Angela? A kindred spirit without a doubt!

Made me chortle Robin

Yep, that's fine Sarah - think Bridget Jones (I know, I sound like a Texan pretending to be British ...)

Cross your legs and contract Holly ;-)

Thanks R Dawn, it's lovely to be there

Thanks Eileen, it's a fact isn't it?

Wow Kate, THAN YOU :-)
