Oh my dogs – the first sighting of a snake here at the Hotel Thompson. Don’t worry mom. I know how you feel about snakes. I so got you covered here. This little rascal is not going to bite those cute ankles of yours. Which brings me to something that daddy told mommy one time. You know daddy tells me stories of his and mom’s dating life when mom is at work. One time daddy said he gave mommy a romantical card and he wrote on it,
“You look as good to me as a bare ankle to a rattlesnake”.
Can you say that got mom hooked to daddy right there and then – Barks with puppy laughter.
Now I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – enjoy my friends and have a great weekend.
Thank you so very much my friends for making Bacon’s Show and Tell a great place to be every month. It takes everyone in blogville to have a party every month 🙂
This month for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting the funniest gift you have been given.
At Christmas when mom/dad were first starting to date, both sides of parents would have get together’s for dinner and presents. Around the 2nd or 3rd year of mom/dad dating, they were gathered at mom’s parents house for presents. They would pass presents around and each person would open them up while others watched. This particular Christmas had two funny gifts.
One was for mom’s mom (my Nana) that was from dad. One day dad heard Nana telling Grandpa that she absolutely loved pickles and she couldn’t get enough of them. Well, dad wanting to please her, fixed her up. He went to our local Sam’s Club and bought Nana the biggest jar of pickles he could find. One gallon of awesome dill pickles all to herself. What a guy huh?
The same Christmas, mom also got a present from daddy. She opened it up and it held nothing but band-aids and bandages of all assortment. Mom was confused at most while others wondered too what was this about. That’s when mom found the card in the box from daddy. It said, “You look as good to me as a bare ankle to a rattlesnake and I’m going to be all over you.” Various shades of red on mom’s face can not explain the embarrassment and trying to explain the box without reading the note.
Okay my friends. This weekend, I’m feeling funny with a slight temperature of amusement. With that in mind, I have jokes to share. I do hope that you enjoy these.
Snake 1 says, “Are we poisonous?”
Snake 2 replies, “I don’t know, why?”.
Snake 1 says, “I just bit my lip.”
One of the highlights of the biology course at my university was the monthly feeding of a caged rattlesnake kept in the laboratory. One time, the entire class gathered around the cage and, in complete silence, watched as the feeding took place.
‘I’m jealous of the snake,’ the instructor said. ‘I never get the class’s undivided attention like this.’
A student answered matter-of-factly, ‘You would if you could swallow a mouse.’
What is the difference between a cat and a dog?
Dogs think, “Humans are benevolent, they feed me and take care of me, so they must be Gods.
Cats think, “Humans are benevolent, they feed me and take care of me, so I must be God.”
This month we are sharing something that was hilarious that you got as a gift whether it was a present, a card or a note and what made it funny.
Well my friends – you know my humans – snorts – enough said huh? I asked mom about this and she thought for a few minutes and then started laughing. That’s a good sign, right? Now she had a lot to work with being with daddy for almost 27 years now. I asked her to tell me about what was so funny. This is what she says:
“Years ago… I mean years ago… your father got me a Valentine’s Day card. It was so sweet with a box of candy and flowers. All of that was perfect and made me oohh and aaww. But what was written “IN” the card by your daddy is what was the best and made me realize how much he loved me. He wrote in the card: You look as good to me as a bare ankle to a rattlesnake. Now if that doesn’t scream love, what does?”
