Funny, funny, funny . . .

It’s hard to come up with the funny today. I’ve been selfishly absorbed with worrying about Britt as she travels up to Parkersburg, Iowa, to be with her in-laws, all of whom completely lost their houses in Sunday’s super-cell storm and resulting mile-wide tornado that destroyed most of Parkersburg.

So, this is all I’ve got:

Q: How are tornadoes and marriages alike?
A: They both begin with a lot of blowing and sucking, and in the end you lose your house.

What, too soon?

    Excellent question. Decent joke. Unsure on timing, but I’ll sit back and listen to the collective wisdom.

    I personally don’t get offended but I usually ‘feel’ for others and their sensitivities.

    Q: What’s easier to unload – a truckload of basketballs or a truckload of dead babies?
    A: Dead babies – you can use a pitchfork on them.

    Sorry, just trying to recover from yesterday’s saccharine post. Nice Avitable is just plain wrong.

    I was gonna say “It’s never too soon”, but Britt beat me to it.
    I for one, “make light” in time of tragedy. That’s MY way of coping.
    is it wrong?
    Personally, I don’t think so.
    Does my heart go out to those affected?

    For I may one day (again) be affected.

    Much love Britt, be safe!
    Z. :hug:

    Were you one of those guys who made up the Christa McCauliff jokes about twenty minutes after the space shuttle blew up back in the day?

    Humor is cathartic, I always say. Whether it’s tornadoes OR marriages.

    I have been thinking about her, and hoping things go well. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

    I really wish I had known you when I was radioactive. I bet you would have thought it was funny like I did that I was in a hospital room with “radioactive material” tape across the door and the radioactive material was ME. No one else laughed about it except my aunt. Apparently tumors and stuff aren’t funny to most people. But I bet you would have laughed at my jokes.

    Mary, will do. Keep an eye on Britt’s blog. We’re back to bestiality porn and desecrating ideals and dreams on this blog tomorrow.

    Amanda, well, I meant selfish because I was more worried about her driving straight through up to Iowa than I am about people I don’t know who lost their houses.

    BPR, awww, thanks. And no, that’s not a pen in my pocket.

    Tori, she totally understands – she finds the funny in everything.

    Wayne, yeah, I always have a group of inappropriate jokes ready to go at a moment’s notice.

    Poppy, it’s funny ’cause it’s true!

    Freelance, I’ll be more absorbed next time.

    Charissa, well, mercy would be nice, but if he can find a house somewhere, that might be better.

    Penelope, laughing at tragedy is, in my opinion, the best coping mechanism.

    Grant, I love dead baby jokes!

    Zom, that’s very nice – I’ll pass that along.

    Manager Mom, well I was only 9, but my mom told me those jokes the very next day.

    Fab, well, I know you might have a hard time recognizing funny recently, since you’ve gone all mellow and serious.

    Cap, well, when I told Britt, she laughed a lot.

    Nat, they are all physically okay and emotionally, they’re getting there.

    Bubblewench, will do.

    Hallie, I had to go with an old standby. Couldn’t think of any good jokes yet.

    Radioactive Girl, I totally would have appreciated those jokes!

    Mindy, you’re clearly going to hell.

    I know this feeling: last year, my friend’s roof blew off during that microburst in Chicago, and a) he’s a stand up comedian and b) it was on April Fool’s Day. How do you tell people you had that happen to you when they’re all going to go, “Yeah, sure, you’re a funny guy, you shouldn’t joke about stuff like that”?

  8. Avitable

    Metalmom, why? Do I have acid tears?

    Hello, always.

    Golfwidow, you can’t help but make jokes if that happens.

    Finn, well, she stil hasn’t shown me her boobs!

    Turnbaby, only if you wanted it!

    We had a tornado come through here a few years ago and the only thing I can really remember about it is a lady in town was sitting on the toilet when the top of her house flew off. Now if it even starts raining I refuse to go to the bathroom until it’s over!

    Dude! You skipped right over my comment! No reply! Yours is, like, only one of three blogs upon which I ever comment, and now you have me worried that what I wrote was inappropriate or something (now that that IS hard to imagine on this blog, but I’m like that). And it seemed so innocuous…

  11. Avitable

    Christie, I think her family will be able to recover.

    TMP, that is very true.

    JO, well, you could always just go in your pants.

    TrishK, too old for texting, eh?

    Maria, it’s unbelievable, honestly.

    Shelli, comic relief is what I do best.

    JenniferAmyD, clearly, she was barely hanging on.

    Amanda aka BB, nice one.

    Jay, good!

    MyWeeWorld, yeah, where the hell have you been? Oh yeah.

  12. Avitable

    Sybil, tornadoes suck and blow, but there’s no jizz.

    TrishK, I think it’s the too old thing. 🙂

    JO, the sucking and blowing?

    Mr. Fabulous, please. I don’t want to become diabetic here.

    Bossy, look what happens when you’re consumed with a graduation party!

    Turnbaby, /retch.

    Jasmine, that’s what I thought, too.

    Kay, and sometimes you have to laugh to keep from ejaculating too early.

    Gwen, at least it doesn’t suck.

    BE Earl, our power went out and we didn’t even have a thunderstorm. Can’t wait for hurricane season, I say sarcastically.

    Crystal, premature elaughication?

    Dragon, appropriate is only in the eye of the vagina.

    Just Another One, I’d like to hear more about that.

    Fantastagirl, done.

    BB, and she was wittier than you could be, too!

    Maman, good point.

  13. Mocha

    You wouldn’t be you if you waited to make that joke. I would have to make FUN of you for being all sappy and shit and tell you to go play with your titties and get back to normal.

    Luckily, I don’t have to say that now.

    Speaking as a soon-to-be-married, I have to laugh at that one. I’ll letcha know in a year or so how true it turns out to be. :jerkoff2:
