Funnies Friday

My daughter turned me on to the Pickles comic strip. She said it reminded her of my folks (her grandparents). I just enjoy the humor.

I caught a commercial the other day that made me laugh my head off. OK--this husband and wife are sitting in the front row of a lecture or church service. The man leans over and asks the woman in a whisper if she has any lip balm because his lips are dry. She reaches into her purse and pulls out a cosmetic bag that she silently hands to him. Without taking his eyes off the speaker, he reaches in, grabs a tube and proceeds to spread the stuff liberally over his lips. Then, he sits back contented with bright red lipstick smeared all over his mouth.

It was the funniest thing I've seen in ages! Now every time I see someone applying Chapstick, I think of the man with the lipstick and I chuckle.

It made me laugh even in your telling of it. Hope to see it sometime. It's so good to laugh... thanks for sharing this.

I am glad it was only lipstick. I would never do that unless I had time to root and dig.

We must have been looking at tv at the same time, same channel. My husband and I let out a happy whoop! You're very creative to blog about Pickles and a commerical and how happiness is really inside. Beautiful!

I haven't seen that one, but how funny. I am a chapstickaholic! Love the stuff!

That comic strip is funny too. Love them both!

Enjoy your weekend.

You really made me smile. I'll be looking at chapstick in a whole different light. I keep a tube in a pocket of every coat I have.
