    Do you have a memory(s) that still to this day makes you laugh silly, even when no one else is around? I'd love to here some funny stories. Share the laughter!

    Hehee... this friend of mine who I worked with, she was going to get married & she was going to be living in a different rural county down in a valley. Well, she went to a new doctor in this new town for a female examination & she said he was conducting this examination & he asked why she was moving down here.... & she said "Uh..... I guess I'm just nervous." & he said... "I mean why are you moving down to this area of the country!: :D

    OK I have one....

    In high-school I was known for talking way too much (like that is hard to believe eh:p ). Well one day it caught up with me. I was walking back-wards in the cafeteria were the whole school was sitting down having their lunch. I was talking away not paying any attention to where my next action filled story would land me, when I toppled over a large garbage can. I ended up sitting right in it with my legs and arms hanging out and my quilt wrapped over my head, and my lunch flown half way down the isle. Lucky for me I was in an all girls high or this might have been embarrassing. Needless to say, every one including the teachers coming out of the cafeteria line, where having all out belly laughs at my most eloquent seating position. I can honestly say that that was the day in which I became "popular". Oddly, it never did embarrass me, but it sure does make me laugh even to this day.

    I know this is going to sound bad, but I remember when I was about 8 or 9 years old, my older brother had some friends come over and I was in the basement watching TV. He and his friends came downstairs and he wanted to look like a big man in front of his buddies, so he tried to take over the basement (and change the channel on the TV). Anyways, I refused and we got into a fight where I smacked him on the forehead with the remote control. Now, my brother was a big wrestling fan, so he thought he'd show off to his buddies by "drop-kicking" me. I moved out of the way, and he fell (completely horizontal) down onto our concrete basement floor, landing on his thumb :eek:......it sounded kinda like a twig snapping.
    Anyways, he ended up shrieking like a little girl, clutching his thumb and running around the basement in circles.......

    That had to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen :D :D :D

    Good idea for a thread Green.....I'll try to remember some more goodies....

    Just thought of another one, involving my other brother getting hurt.......:D

    Again, when I was maybe 9 or 10, my family and I lived in a small house that had a huge backyard, with 4 or 5 large trees growing in it. Anyways, this one summer, my twin brother and I had been watching Batman re-runs(the original with Adam West as Batman). Well, we somehow got this brilliant idea to take some jumping rope from the garage and tie it around the base of a protruding branch, coming from one of these trees in the backyard (so that the jumprope dangled down from this branch, which was about 12-15 feet off the ground).
    So there I am (portraying Batman of course) slowly climbing up the side of the tree, pretending that it was the side of a building. I made it safely to the branch, and climbed up to safety. My brother (finally having agreed to "be" Robin after much initial resistance) almost reached the top....ALMOST being the key word :D
    I watched from above as the the rope ripped, and "Robin" fell about 9 or 10 feet, brilliantly putting his left arm behind him to break the fall.....He ended up fracturing his humerus (sp.) in two places, and ran around the backyard screaming, jumping up and down and holding onto his arm.:D (I wonder why my brothers always do that whenever they get hurt?)
    :D :D :D

    Mother was NOT impressed.....

    Well, at least I find it funny....

    One day when me and my friends were teenagers, we were breaking night, like we always did (sneak out of our houses when parents were asleep). As we were walking down a street, we noticed that there was a person on the freight track overpass. The guy was screaming that he was going to jump. So naturally, we all started to yell at him to jump, that talk was cheap, etc.. Apparently that caught the guy by surprise (I guess he expected us to try and talk him out of it) as he didn't jump (it was a good 25-30 feet from the overpass down to the street). So one of my friends got aggravated (that the guy didn't jump), picked up a rock, and threw it at him. We were at least 30-40 feet from the guy, so, we were all amazed when the rock hit the guy. The guy ended up falling backwards unto the tracks. So, in a warped way, I think we saved that guy's life. :D

    Green, I know this isn't exactly what you were talking about but I have an addition. Every couple of months or so, I go through my computers hard drive to delete any old, unneeded files. Every time, I come across this joke that I saved and have to read it. Usually this is at work and I have a hard time keeping quiet while reading it:

    Recently I was honored to be selected as an Outstanding Famous Celebrity in my Community to be a judge at a chili cook-off because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking directions to the beer wagon when the call came.

    I was assured by the other two judges that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted this as being one of those burdens you endure when you're an Internet writer and therefore known and adored by all.

    Here are the scorecards from the event:

    Chili # 1: Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

    JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
    JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
    CAMERON: Holy smokes, what is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway with it. Took me two beers to put the flames out. Hope that's the worst one. These people are crazy.

    Chili # 2: Arthur's Afterburner Chili

    JUDGE ONE: Smoky (barbecue?) with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
    JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
    CAMERON: Keep this out of reach of children! I'm not sure what I am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. Shoved my way to the front of the beer line. The barmaid looks like a professional wrestler after a bad night. She was so irritated over my gagging sounds that the snake tattoo under her eye started to twitch. She has arms like Popeye and a face like Winston Churchill. I will NOT pick a fight with her.

    Chili # 3: Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

    JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
    JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.
    CAMERON: This has got to be a joke. Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been sneezing Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now and got out of my way so I could make it to the beer wagon. Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. She said her friends call her "Sally." Probably behind her back they call her "Forklift."

    Chili # 4: Bubba's Black Magic

    JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
    JUDGE TWO: A hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
    CAMERON: I felt something scraping across my tongue but was unable to taste it. Sally was standing behind me with fresh refills so I wouldn't have to dash over to see her. When she winked at me her snake sort of coiled and uncoiled—it's kinda cute.

    Chili # 5: Linda's Legal Lip Remover

    JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
    JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
    CAMERON: My ears are ringing and I can no longer focus my eyes. I belched and four people in front of me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed hurt when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. Sort of irritates me that one of the other judges asked me to stop screaming.

    Chili # 6: Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

    JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers.
    JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.
    CAMERON: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous flames. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally. I asked if she wants to go dancing later.

    Chili # 7: Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

    JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
    JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in canned chili peppers at the last moment. I should note that I am a bit worried about Judge Number 3, he appears to be in a bit of distress.
    CAMERON: You could put a hand grenade in my mouth and pull the pin and I wouldn't feel it. I've lost the sight in one eye and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My clothes are covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth at some point. Good, at autopsy they'll know what killed me. Go Sally, save yourself before it's too late. Tell our children I'm sorry I was not there to conceive them. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful and I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air I'll just let it in through the hole in my stomach. Call the X-Files people and tell them I've found a super nova on my tongue.

    Chili # 8: Helen's Mount Saint Chili

    JUDGE ONE: This final entry is a good, balanced chili, neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 fell and pulled the chili pot on top of himself.
    JUDGE TWO: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all, not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
    CAMERON: Momma?

    A few years ago Ken and I were in Michigan for a Nascar race. We stayed with friends that had little mopars. I was told to try one out there in the yard to get a feel for driving a motorized bike. The only bike I've ever driven before this was a normal bike where you either back pedaled to break and there were the hand breaks (which I was still getting used to).

    I'm going around at a whopping speed of 2 mph, didn't want the g-forces to get to me. Now I'm thinking I want to stop and at this breakneck speed I couldn't remember how to stop. So I aimed at and hit the porch. Hey I stopped didn't I? Now anytime I mention that I want to learn how to drive a motorcycle Ken pipes up with "Remember Michigan" followed by "not with my Harley". Party poop!!!! :eek: ;) :D :D :p

    My parrot, Bwana, was well know in the airline. My wife and I regularly carried her between Florida and our commuter place in NY. Crewmembers often asked how she was when they saw us. Several captains insisted on having her ride in the cockpit – she can be entertaining when she isn’t being surly.

    I took a flight from Cairo to Riyadh and back. The captain who was going to take it on nonstop to NY was a friend of mine and in operations when I arrived.

    He said “hi Wayne, how’s the bird” I told him she had just spent a week with our dentist while Suzie and I went skiing and she seemed to miss the dentist. Then I added a few more tidbits about her adventurous life.

    As I finished my bird babble I noticed my friend had a curious look on his face. He said “I was asking about the airplane”. Turns out he had never met Bwana and knew nothing of her. He still looks at me funny sometimes.

    Nothing gives me the giggles.

    I hate winter with a passion. I can understand why so many people commit suicide at this time of year. If I can I will giggle in the spring.
