This Neno Award is strikingly original, and I love it, the graphic, and I love that Linda Socha, of Psyche Connections thought to tag me for it! Right now, I'm too sleepy to pick out recipients, although everyone I know qualifies...I think?

Please click on this one-minute video, it is FUNNY!

Welcome, bloggers to my
Friday Happy Hour.

Blogs and comments of mine lately have been so serious, that I forgot to smile and laugh...can you imagine that? And Italy just broke away from the Continent, and is floating aimlessly around the Mediterranean Sea -grin!

Each Thursday night it is one of my privileges at the "cookie" meeting, Naples group of AA (about 200 peeps), to be their librarian. One of my favorite duties is to have a prepared joke to tell, to prove we are really not a glum lot. The jokes have been going so well, I'd like to share one each Friday--from the night before. Here goes:


On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife.
The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a
nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for
erectile dysfunction. After being persuaded, he drove to the
reservation, handed his ticket to the medicine man and wondered what
he was in for.

The old man slowly, methodically produced a potion, handed it to
him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is powerful
medicine and it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and
then say '1-2-3'. When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."

The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?"

"Your partner must say '1-2-3-4," he responded. "But when she does,
the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."

He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered,
shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife
to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took off his
clothes and said, "1-2-3!"

Immediately, he was the manliest of men. His wife was excited and
began throwing off her clothes. And then she asked, "What was the 1-2-3 for?"

Ok, bloggers. If ya don't like the respite, lemme know and it will never happen again--until next Friday!

And smiling and laughter is so akin to happiness, love and peace. I believe the world could use more of ALL of it...at least my world!

Love, and Peace,
Steve E

That was hilarious! I can see my daughter standing at the sink doing the same thing. When she was 3 she wanted to help me "tidy up". I had a beautiful brand new watch, (an anniversary present), sitting on a coffee table that I never saw again.

Syd said...

Very good joke. I guess the "manliest of men" went back to getting a new Native American name "Little Twig".
