February 2: Giggle Pot Thursday!

on February 2, 2012

YAY! Some peoples funny bones have finally fixed themselves!

Every body needs to laugh and smile. Did you know that ten-minutes of belly laughing is as good an exercise as 20 minutes jogging? It is also a proven that laughing can help head aches, sadness, and minor aches and pains from the release of Endorphins. In the words of Elle Woods “Endorphins make you happy! People who release endorphins just don’t kill their husbands!”

Tonights funnies have been sent to me by my Aunt in England. I hope you get a giggle out of it, I did whilst I was reading it!

Something tells me these pictures mean it was last day at work!

The man said, ‘You can’t be serious. I could  Never shoot my wife.’ The agent said, ‘Then you’re not the right man For this job. Take your wife and go home.’

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was Quiet for about 5 minutes.
The man came out with tears in his eyes, ‘I tried, But I can’t kill my wife.’ The agent said, ‘You don’t Have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.’

Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given the Same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the Gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one After another..  They heard screaming, crashing, Banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was Quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the Woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.

‘This gun is loaded with blanks’ she said.  ‘I had to
Beat him to death with the chair.’
