taking your pet to church

I heard there’s a church that lets you bring your pets to service now.  Apparently it’s been good for their attendance, but I have to wonder if they ever asked themselves: WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?  Seems like there’s quite a few potential issues, and by “potential” I mean likely will happen.  Let’s look at a couple of scenarios.

1) Animals like to explore and smell things.  So they’re going to want to wander around.  Not only would that be a distraction, but it would lead to #2.

2) Fighting.  Are cats and dogs going to suddenly get along because they’re in church?  I doubt it.  It’ll end up like a Looney Tunes episode where the dog is chasing Sylvester, who is chasing Tweety Bird.  It makes for a funny cartoon, but not so great in real life, especially during something as important as a church service.

3) Animals poop.  Well, to be fair, humans do too, but we usually go to a bathroom for such things.  It would be a huge distraction to have animals urinating and pooping all over the place.  Even if you had litter boxes, some indoor pets aren’t housebroken.  (I know, that seems inconceivable, but I know someone who keeps a dog inside who isn’t housebroken. I just don’t understand.)  Either way, poop is distracting, as well as unsanitary.

I could go on, but I figure that’s enough reasons why you wouldn’t allow people to bring their pets to church with them.  What do you think?

funny pictures, episode 12

Someone pointed out that many of my recent posts have been asking for contributions to the humor (i.e., caption contests), and I make no apologies for that — I really enjoy seeing how different perspectives result in varied humor.  But I realized I have been neglecting the funny pictures series, so I will continue that post-haste.

Now, for your viewing pleasure, here are several funny / weird / random / odd pictures for you to enjoy.  (Of course you are welcome to leave comments, but don’t feel pressured to.)

This reminds me of regular reader Rurouni Kenneth!
Pets have a way of letting you know when they feel neglected...
This sounds like that "Important Doctor", with his bacon and cheese diet*...

* The bacon-and-cheese diet has been referenced many times, but you can find the first mention of it here, if you care to read more…  Just remember this is a humor site, so take any of this seriously at your own risk!  Better yet, don’t take any of it seriously!

This reminds me of a guy I know... his name is Anonymous. 🙂

There ya go.  Stay tuned for more funny pics, and feel free to peruse the funny picture archives if you are new here.

funny Christmas picture

Things are busy around here, trying to find the perfect gift for people you don’t see often, and going to various Christmas parties.  So posting has been a little slow the past few weeks (and will continue next week).  So here’s a quick post, just so you won’t have withdrawals too bad.  🙂

If you don’t get the joke / pun, it’s that “Feliz Navidad” means “Merry Christmas” in Spanish.  I’m not sure if knowing that makes it any funnier (because it is a pun, after all), but it may cause some of you to groan (which I suppose is the purpose of puns).

Easter eggs falling from the sky

Speaking of Easter eggs, a couple of years ago a church in South Carolina dropped 50,000 plastic Easter eggs from an airplane, for people to find.  They claimed that some eggs had prizes fit for adults.   As you might expect, we had an interesting discussion based on this:

That would have been hilarious, a field full of people waiting for the eggs to arrive, and then 50,000 eggs falling from the sky like pastel colored hail. I can see the news headlines now — “Easter bunny takes to sky, kills three”, “When Eggs go bad, the Easter Weekend Massacre”, and a Mythbusters episode where they not only prove that the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are real, but they can kill you too.   And when you say with prizes fit for adults, I’m imagining a TV wrapped in a giant eggshell, and a couch, car, and boat done the same way. ~ Turtle Dundee, 4/9/07

Now I have a bonus Easter-related link for you.  This story is about a couple who hid real, hard-boiled Easter eggs around their house for their kids.  They hid two dozen, but found only 13.   I’ll leave the hilarious explanation for your reading, because it’s really funny how he explains what happened.  Here’s the link: Smells like Easter.  [link broken]
