Five on Friday: Funnies Edition

Well it's Friday and we all know what that means: Five on Friday!
Lately I have been all about the "humor" section on Pinterest. I never looked through it before because I mainly just used Pinterest for decor, party ideas, and recipes. About a month ago, I was laying in bed before sleep, doing my nightly Pinterest perusing, when I happened upon the "humor" section. I was bored with all my normal categories, so I thought I would give it a try. Normally I can't stand the constant barrage of memes and such all over Facebook; I like Facebook for keeping updated on family/friends lives'. However contrary to my initial skepticism, this section on Pinterest is the best! I get at least one good laugh every time I skim through it, and usually by the end of the night, I need a good laugh! 

So here are my current favorites compiled in this weeks Five on Friday: Funnies Edition

I literally LOL'ed on this one! I think it's so funny when you find a meme that is totally you, but you thought no one else did or thought the same. I seriously do this a least 100 times a post. I am embarrassed by how horrible my spelling is.. I am a teacher for goodness sakes (though not a language one thankfully)! I have always been a horrible speller, so I rely heavily on spell-check and Google to be sure I don't make a fool out of myself. When I was in college, 90% of my tests were essay, so I had to be very strategic with my writing. If I wasn't 100% certain on how to spell a word, I would have to change what I was writing to use another word. #nospellwell #badspellerproblems

So sad, but so true! This doesn't happen every time, but it happens more often than I would like to admit. There are times I know that no one in the house will eat the leftovers, but I feel guilty throwing them away. So, in the Tupperware they go, only to be thrown away a week later. But for some reason I don't feel as bad then because, you know, now it's too old to be eaten, so I have to throw it away. First world problems at its finest y'all!

  This pretty much sums up my thought process everyday. Unfortunately, the nap part usually doesn't happen unless I lay down with Myles for his nap. I have been a nap lover since I can remember. I used to purposely not sleep as much at night, just so I would be able to take a nap in the afternoon. This was soo me all throughout college... and if I am being honest... my first years teaching as well!

Kids say the darnedest things, right?!? They are also extremely smart :)

Okay this last one isn't from Pinterest, but I had to include it. 
First a little background: Weird things happen in our house sometimes that can't really be explained (like coming home to our bath tub completely full and the water on full blast).  After the first couple of times, I decided it was a ghost and named him George. If one of us forgets to do something or leaves something on, I always blame George. He's a pretty good scapegoat if I ever seen one! 
So anywho, one day I am in my room folding clothes that I emptied out on top of the bed. I kept smelling something really horrible, but I couldn't quite figure out where or what it was. I thought maybe Myles had a poopy diaper or the dog had pooped in our room somewhere. After I finished the clothes, I went on an investigation. Well, it didn't take too long to figure out where the smell was coming from: I found the cat in his usual spot on our bed, but he happened to have a little something peculiar on him. Yes, that is right folks, he had a big pile of poop on him! I shit you not.. totally real!
I sat in shock for what felt like 10 minutes before I got the courage to clean it all up.. But I couldn't for the life of me figure out what happened. I racked my brain for the next couple of days and even now I can't understand. It couldn't have been the dog because we have a tiny miniature pincher that can't climb onto our bed because he is too small and old. Even if he did, I can't imagine the cat just sitting there while the dog pooped on him (our cat and dog do not get along. The dog is scared of the cat). Furthermore, the dog does not poop like that. I would say that it looks more like the cat poop, but how is that physically possible? I am missing something here? Does anyone have any thoughts?

Also I would love to have a caption contest! I have thought of a few myself but I want to know what you guys can come up with! Leave a comment below.

 Some really great ladies put this link up together, including Darci and April! Go on over and check out all the other Five on Friday posts; it's a great way to meet new bloggers and grow relationships :)
Happy Happy Friday Y'all 


  1. This post made me laugh so hard- until the cat story. Uhm, george is freaking scary and I cant imagine anything else being responsible for what ended up on the cat. I'm freaked out Julia!!!!!!! The bathtub full of water? wtf!

  2. I love the one about spellcheck!

    LOL and sleeping cat with poop you can't make that up!

  4. LOL. I've seen a few of those lately. Found you through the Monday blog hop. Following with google plus.
    Angela @ Time with A & N

  5. That is both hilarious and disgusting! We have a leprechaun we blame for whatever was forgotten in our house, too ;) I 'm glad I found your blog on the blog hop, am now tagging along, and can't wait to read more. Hoping you stop by to say hi sometime.

    The cat with what looked like poopy on it was hard to look at lol. The others were pretty funny. I have a humor board for the funny things I see once in a while. :) Thanks for sharing this one with us at Countdown in Style too :)

    I don't have a humor board, all of these go on my Mind, Body and Soul board because laughter is good for the soul! This year I declared that I would have less waste, so in the last three months, I've tossed out one Tupperware container. I'm so proud of myself. I send it for lunch with my husband, have tossed it in the crockpot for a soup, or in the freezer for another day. It's working well and I only have two tupperware containers in the freezer! Thanks for linking up with Countdown in Style.

  8. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! I might do it a little too much though :)

  9. It always feels better when you're not the only one! I just threw a Tupperware of stew away tonight... I totally knew no one would eat it again.. I wish I could give it to someone or place that takes food.
    Holy crap is right! So disturbing, right!?!

  10. I feel like there should be a reasonable explanation for the cat poop, but I just can't think of anything. Sorry for tricking you into looking at poop ;) But seriously I need an answer lol! All I can think of is that George has a sick sense of humor!

  11. Right?!?! Like how is that possible.. he doesn't even notice that is has a pile of poo on him.. just sleeping away... Cat's.. I tell ya, they are something else!

  12. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your link. It is so much easier to check you out that way! It is so nice having someone/thing to blame everything on! I love that yours is a leprechaun! They are so sneaky :)

  13. I need to get better at finding other ways to use the leftovers, like other dishes to make with what I have left. But I never thought of freezing it. That is such a good idea! Then it won't go bad as quickly. I am totally going to start doing that. Thanks for the idea!

  14. Pinning humorous things to my "lol forever" board is an almost daily routine for me. I love internet humor and I'm so sad when people in my offline life don't get it. I try to explain and they don't think it's funny or don't get it and I'm like you people have sad lives. Haha
