Those Funny Mothers Day Quotes and Trivia

From Denny: Check out the sampling from one of many funny posts just in time to enjoy for Mothers Day! From the latest Mothers Day cartoons to funny facts about Mothers Day traditions around the world to funny quotes from mothers and about mothering to laugh out loud "how you know you are a mother when..."






Check this out on the way to facts about Mothers Day:

So when do they think the first celebrations of a Mother's Day were honored? As with so many traditions it goes back to ancient Greece where that culture celebrated the Mother of the Gods, Rhea. Their version of the perfect mother received gifts of cakes made with the sweetest honey, lovely flowers and drinks at dawn. Sounds pretty good to me. Make my drink a Margarita on the rocks with Silver Patron Tequila - though I'm not so sure alcoholic drinks were on that Mother's Day menu. :)

Well, we all know you can't talk "ancient" without bringing up the ancient Egyptians into the conversation. They honored the glorious goddess Isis because she was celebrated as the Mother of the Pharaohs - and we all know it's good PR to talk good about the government when getting your head cut off is at stake.

Speaking of an ancient culture, the Chinese are rather sentimental about how they celebrate motherhood. The tradition with them is that their family name often begins with the character for the word "mother." It's the way they like to honor their ancestral mothers who brought their line into this world.





You Know You Are Really A Mom When...

* You want to take out a contract on the kid who broke your child's favorite toy and made them cry.

* You consider finger paint to be a controlled substance.

* You mastered the art of placing food on a plate without anything touching.

* Your child insists that you read "Once upon a Potty" out loud in the lobby of the doctor's office and you do it.





My Mother Taught Me...

To Value A Job Well Done: If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.

Time Travel: If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!

Logic: Because I said so, that's why.

Dennys Photo Gallery: Life is Just Plain Funny

From Denny: While on one of my famous "coffee breaks" where I go tripping through the flickr Creative Commons database for interesting photos to rest my mind, relax and drink in visually - I put together this theme for you to enjoy with me! :) It is funny how animals and their silly ideas or just silly selves can provide hours of amusement for people. Of course, that might actually be a commentary upon us...

Make sure you check out the various photographers and the links to their pages over at flickr. There is plenty more humor to be explored with them, enjoy!





Ah, the endless joys of PhotoShop. Swine flu by The Artifex @ flickr






I told you it's time for dinner! Get yourselves in this house this instant, NOW! Yawn by Andrew Ciscel @ flickr






Photographer: I'm sitting in a presentation this morning and the kid in front of me has got this awesome 'fro blocking my view. What else am I to do? Photo by Robert S. Donovan @ flickr






This was a clever double meaning riding around the city on the side of a bus. It is amusing how funny photos and situations can literally drive on past us in our daily life. Quick! Pull out the camera and capture it! Scratch winners on the bus by Andrew Ciscel @ flickr






Here's another funny juxtaposition. While the owner comfortably reads in the background the cat is oh, so comfortable too in the foreground, lounging rather lazily. Cat gelling while mom reads a book by Andrew Ciscel @ flickr






I had a cat that I used to carry around on my forearm from the time she was a tiny kitten. When she was grown she still expected me to pick her up and carry her like that. At ten pounds the old girl was getting to be a bit of a load and she needed to go on a diet. It was her human perch and she loved it like a kid demands to be pushed higher and higher while on a playground swing. Looks like this lady had a better solution and invented a hitchhiker cat backpack. Lazy hitchhiker by Andrew Ciscel @ flickr






Talk about filthy. I don't even want to see the inside of that vehicle... Dirt is fun by Misserion @ flickr






Was this dog riding in the back of that filthy vehicle? Sure looks like he thought it was great fun! It is the same photographer, hmmm... Bath time with Mr. Muddy Mess by Misserion @ flickr






What all little boys want to grow up to look like to attract the ladies... Impressive! Photo by aleske @ flickr






This photographer often captures the humor in real life. Make up your mind already - is it Yes or No? by P/\UL @ flickr

I love this one. Look closely. This lizard is not just sunning himself on a green twig. This twig has lettering on it. Yep! That's a high voltage tension wire that lizard is catching some sun rays on up there! He must be getting quite the buzzing sensation like it's his very own massage chair.

Roundup of Late Nite Funnies: Colbert Lampoons Arizona Immigration Law

From Denny: Here's a fun sampling of the laugh out loud funnies going on over at The Social Poets on Mondays where I round up the late night jokes, political cartoons and funny videos lampooning something, someone and somewhere. It's a great way to get through the work week with a silly grin on your face. Maybe your boss will actually think you are enjoying your lame job - or looking at eight hours of porn on company time just like the weirdos over at the SEC. "Our government at work..." :)


David Letterman's Top Ten Goldman Sachs Excuses


10. Huh?
9. You're saying 'fraud' like it's a bad thing
8. Planned on using money to buy everyone in America delicious KFC Double Down sandwich
7. Distraught over George Lopez's move to midnight
6. We were framed by evil menswear company Goldman Slacks
5. Since when are financial institutions not allowed to screw their customers?
4. Hey sport, how much to make these questions go away?
3. America needed a villain both Republicans and Democrats can hate
2. Everyone we ripped off got an 'I Got Cheated By Goldman Sachs' tote bag
1. Uhh, it's Obama's fault?



*** Colbert pokes jabs at the state of Arizona for passing controversial bold new immigration bill which basically legalizes the harassment of Latinos. Colbert thinks the new strategy is one to irritate and frustrate the Latino community to the point they will get fed up and leave on their own.

Happy Birthday to Our Humanitarian Friend Peter



Happy Birthday cake by Omer Wazir @ flickr


From Denny: A very Happy Birthday to a cool friend of ours we met in Austria on a visit to Europe. He has a wonderful love for people - especially troubled people in transition in their lives. He has worked with people suffering from severe depression and suicidal - which is rampant in Austria. He also works with those who struggle with addictions and with single mothers who need to know someone is there to encourage them.

Peter is a joyful loving spirit, always ready to lend a hand to others. Today we celebrate the day he was sent to Earth as a humble humanitarian. He is not a rich philanthropist who gives of his money and gets lauded by the socialite community. Peter is a simple person who gives of himself and his time. He is an example of what any of us can do to make the world a better place. Happy Birthday, Peter of Austria!

May you have many more birthdays with so many candles on the cake your neighbors will have to call the fire department to come extinguish the flames. :)




Happy Birthday candles burning down the house by ritchielee @ flickr

May you have many loved ones around you as you celebrate your special day - a day of which many people are glad you are here because of how you have touched and impacted their lives to the good!






Chocolate birthday cake message by zappowbang @ flickr




A "Happy Birthday" message is always best written in chocolate cake - my favorite cake to give you if we were there to throw you a birthday party.





Funny dogs trying to grab some birthday cake food for themselves by Just Jefa @ flickr


Make sure no family dogs are close by to steal your delicious birthday cake! :) (Austrians love dogs like Americans do.)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Peter, and many more to you!!!

Love, From Your Friends in America...

Whats Happening in America This Week - Political Cartoons 24 Apr 2010

From Denny: In the interest of getting these pages to load faster for you I thought I'd try something different. You know about the traveling dinner concept? That's where you go to one person's house for the opening cocktail or appetizer, then travel on to another house for a salad, then somewhere else for the entree and finally the dessert.

Well, since I have such a love of the satire from clever political cartoonists lampooning our society, current culture and politics the weekly posts have gotten far too long. Fun but long. So, I thought I'd treat you to a traveling post among my various blogs to enjoy the flavors at each "house."

In this "house" post weapons seem to be the main theme: Iran working on becoming a nuclear state, concealed weapons carried by college students on campus and coffee drinkers into Starbucks coffee shops. It's no big surprise that NASA and the Air Force are preparing to weaponize space. More weapons loose on deck are the "nuclear option" of the Republican filibuster, the financial sledgehammer from Wall Street bankers and - leading up to celebration of Earth Day - planet Earth setting off the Icelandic volcano to scream its message of "Enough already with the fossil fuels, people!" Yeah, that Iceland volcano sure got the attention of the airline industry. It cost $200 million per day worldwide, wrecking a weak economy in Europe and America.

Check out what the cartoonists had to say about this week's news...






Where Obama, the Tea Party, Nukes and NASA intersect:


















































Congress and their voting dilemmas:















Oh, NASA, Oh, NASA, where art thou?










Our Earth:
