Funnies for the day

Thanks to Jane at Keeping the Pounds Off and Allan at Almost Gastric Bypass for the tough love and little reminder about what the hell I am doing.

I WILL NOT eat the foods that trigger my insanity.
I WILL make the healthy choices I know are good for my body.

Can't say much more right now. But here are some funnies for your day.

PARAPROSDOKIANS (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech
in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous.

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left..

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

8. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening,' then proceed to tell you why it isn't.

9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

10. Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. On my desk is a work station.

11. I thought I wanted a career. Turns out I just wanted paychecks.

12. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, notify:' I put 'DOCTOR.'

13. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

14. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

15. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.

16. A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.

17. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

18. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

19. There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away.

20. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

21. You're never too old to learn something stupid.

22. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

23. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

24. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

25. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

26. Where there's a will, there are relatives.

27. If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some people have more than one child?

28. The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!


  1. I did that list a year ago - I love them. There are a few here I do not have.

    BTW: Winston Churchill ALSO SAID something you must take to heart:

    Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, quit!

    I have it on a bracelet.

  2. Hi Kelliann - got your message on my last post, tried to email you directly but there's no email address connected to your comments. Feel free to quote away! I totally understand the struggle with what is right vs. what is comfortable, and doing a lot of reading on addiction now is helping. Maintaining is better than gaining but I want to be losing again, and in order to do that, I need to regain control over my addiction. It's a lot of work, but living a healthy life is worth every moment of struggle.
