Today being April Fools’ Day, and April being National Humor Month, I thought I’d write a funny post. The problem is that I’m having problems writing a funny post. Either the jokes I find are losers, or I don’t ‘get’ them (obviously, if I don’t get them, they can’t be funny), or they contain one or more of the seven words you can’t say on television (or mention on a family blog) — you remember, the 7 words comedian George Carlin warned us about back in the 70s:

Of course, you would hear every one of those words if you watched the above clip, so I can’t use it.

And then I thought about using this clip,


So, I can’t use it.

Finally, out of desperation, I thought I’d call my neighbors, the Funnies, but they were out of desperation too. However, they did let me borrow yesterday’s newspaper containing these cartoons:


Now that, I can use.

    Mister MUSE!! Such irreverent humour for April Fool’s Day!! Atta boy!! Big grin. . .. I haven’t heard that one by George Carlin for awhile and I was hooting!
    I’m so glad you’re watching those dingleberries. . . 🙂

      That reminds me that after I called the Funnies, I should’ve called my neighbors on the other side, the Dingleberries. But it’s just as well I didn’t — after all, the Dingleberries ARE dingleberries, and I might have given their suggestions the raspberries.

    Happy Easter, Sr. Muse. And April Fool’s Day. And National Humor Month. And Sexual Assault Awareness Month, proclaimed by the Sexual Assaulter-in-Chief.

      Not to mention the Golden Rule Assaulter-in-Chief and Intelligence Assaulter-in-Chief. But on Easter Sunday, we should dwell on good eggs, so enough about him and Happy Easter to you too, Ricardo.

    I think it is funny McGee. I actually saw George Carlin live once in Vegas, funny, very funny. When it comes to blue routines as they used to call them this guy is my favorite.

      LMAO at that clip, Don.

      BTW, did you catch who that is in the B & W “Tain’t funny” clip? They’re Jim & Marian Jordan (better known as FIBBER McGEE & MOLLY, from the long-running — 1935-56 — radio show of the same name). They also made four movies (that two-second clip is undoubtedly from one of them).

    Muse, while I didn’t recognize them I was pretty sure they were from the radio show. I do remember that line.

    The music of the Trump cartoon is good, and many thanks for the 7 no-no words! 🙂

      That’s funny, I didn’t hear any music with the Trump cartoons — then I turned the sound on 🙂 and I still didn’t hear any….not even songbirds tweeting like crazy, like Trump. But there SHOULD be music — music with lyrics using the 7 no-no words which are probably coming from the bedroom Trump can’t enter.

      P.S. Thanks for the thanks.

        Just checked. Strange. The music is still there (when I play the “Varvel: Drawing Trump non-disclosures” cartoon), a fun contrast to the character depicted. Then again, a version with Carlin’s 7 no-nos from behind the door sounds all the more exciting 🙂
