I'm Not Being Funny, Right...

...but Thursday night's Eight Out of Ten Cats was the funniest ever! When Mouthy opened her gob to make a comment, the first words to emerge were: "I'm not being funny, right -" and Jimmy Carr agreed. After that, whenever she tried to speak, which was roughly every five seconds, she seemed to be stuck on that one phrase. Well, it made me laugh, but I'm just shallow.

I can do deep and profound too. Italian cosmologist Sabino Matarrese of the University of Padova claims, in support of recent observations that the universe contains voids up to a milliard light years across, that dark energy may not exist after all, and that the accelerating expansion of the universe might be explained by the existence of large-scale spherical holes, somewhat like Swiss Cheese. Don't believe me? Look at Google Moon, then zoom in to maximum magnification. You SEE? You SEE?

Here's one that, well, it's a bit hard to classify. A friend was asked to babysit his nephew while mum & dad went out on the ran dan. All went well until bed-time. Uncle got the little 'un into bed and started reading him a story. He chose the one about the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. At the point where "He huffed, and he puffed, and he bleeeeeeeeeeew the house down!", the nephew piped up, in all innocence, "What a fucking bastard!" As you do.

Anybody ever wondered what it means when the computer prompts you to "press any key to continue"?
Now you know.
Any Key

Can't believe you've not submitted Charley's Blog to the other blog....Is it too much of a leap?

Mr Farty said...

Misssy - I'm not being funny, right, but Charley who?

Brom said...

Love the moon thing!

you think they could have included something linked to the omotted Apollo 13 too!


BOSSY said...

Bossy likes her Google Moon on rye with Corned Beef.

Mr Farty said...

Brom - Omotted? Is that a cross between omitted and aborted?

BOSSY - I love you.

Oooh, the nephew's clearly a 'hoody' in the making. Watch out!

Mr Farty said...

Well hello, Jo. Been waiting to say that for years. Do come again.
