It has been a pretty busy week at work, culminating in a really full day today... so I think I'll post a bunch of funny things. I know that I could use a laugh, at least.
First up, a post from Antropologa, an American living in Sweden, with a memory of the hilarity that ensues when you try to speak a foreign language and ask for things that weren't in the textbook. I laugh out loud every time I read this post.
This Cracked post about the most baffling things about women's clothing is funny because it is true. I would add: you have to try on every pair of pants you buy, because two pair of pants in the same size and style but different colors might fit differently. I have a pair of black pinstripe pants that I do not wear, because I bought them based solely on the fact that I had just tried on a pair of theoretically identical grey pants that fit great. MISTAKE. I have been too lazy to take them back, so I guess they will just hang in my closet as a silent reminder to always try everything on.
If you, like me, live with a font geek, this xkcd cartoon will make you laugh out loud.
Amazon sells a purple unicorn castle T-shirt. A lot of guys apparently really like it. Maybe I should get one for my "unicorn" husband.
Here are the rules for modern movie posters.
My husband found this video of Vanilla Ice going Indie Rock:
And of course, don't forget to drop by Mommy Shorts and read my guest post about pink, purple, and princess toys that still encourage development of spatial reasoning and math skills. It isn't funny, but a lot of the other things on her site are (I particularly like her Parenting Charts), so I'm going to stretch the rules and include it here.
