Saturday Silliness!


I have decided to start a fun little thing to do on Saturdays that I am going to call Saturday Silliness. I do not know if it is original, and I am not claiming credit to it. I will just take some silly things from random book,s or just random things I saw or heard and post them. I figure after a long week, everyone can use a little silliness right?!!

The following are taken out of Vitamin Q by Roddy Lumsden It is a book with really random things in it and some make me laugh.

Unusual US place names
  • Intercourse, Alabama
  • Bowlegs, Oklahoma
  • Mexican Hat, Utah
  • Humptulips, Washington
 The next things are taken out of F My Life

Today I'm in Spain. In Spanish I told my students that I was excited to be working with them. However, the form of the word for "excitement" That I used apparently refers to sexual excitement. So I actually told the kids I was sexually aroused to be working with them FML (pg 5 out of the book)

Today I went to the gym to get into shape. I pulled a muscle while taking off my sweater. FML. (Pg 18 out of the book)
(this one made me laugh because it's totally something I would do lol)

Today I got a "save the date" card for the wedding of a couple my husband knows. I was excited because I really want to be better friends with these people. I emailed the bride, saying "I got your STD!" and hit Send before I reaized how that sounded. FML (Pg 26 out of the book)

Today I went to get a haircut, and I asked how much it was for a shampoo, a haircut, and a blowjob. I meant "blow dry". FML (Pg 29 out of the book)

Today I hit a parked car. I was walking. To make the scene more embarrassing, the car alarm shocked me, and I backed up quickly into the parking meter, which knocked me down. FML (Pg 33 out of the book)
 (I have so done that!, well, minus the getting knocked down)

And last is just a quote out of a book  I just finished, Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker

"It's almost like he's a banana chain-smoker." (pg 49 eARC)

It's really funny when you read the whole part, but even still, it's a bit silly so I wanted to add it.

Hope I have given you guys a little silly this Saturday. It was a kind of spur of the moment thing so I will try to put together some better stuff next week. I think this is a great way to start the weekend.

  3. LOL. When I saw the Twitter hashtag for Vampire Diaries, at first I couldn't figure out why it was #TVD. Oh. Right.
    I love this idea. If I find any funny things, I'll send them over.

  4. LOVE the FML quotes - those always crack me up, but I forget to look at them.

    I spent 5 years as a truck driver, and I LOVE the funny town names that are out there. Yellville Arkansa, Climax Colorado, Boring Oregon, Truth or Consequences New Mexico, Accident Maryland. (And I believe there is an Unalaska Alaska... but I've never been there. LOL! )

    1. The list had 20 or so funny town names. I just picked a few. I don't even know why I bought the FML book since there's a whole website. I think I got it for like $4 though.
