Friday Night Funnies: What I Owe My Mother!

Cough Syrup..........

The pharmacist walks into his store
to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall.

He asks the Newfie clerk:
"What's with that guy over there by the wall?"

The clerk responds:
"Well, he came in here this morning
to get something for his cough. 
I couldn't find the cough syrup,
so I gave him an entire bottle of Laxative."

The pharmacist yells:
"You idiot, you can't treat a cough
with a laxative!"

The Newfie clerk responds..................
“Of course you can! "

 "Look at him, he's afraid to cough".
The Older Crowd
A distraught senior citizen
phoned her doctor's office.
'Is it true,' she wanted to know,
'that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?'
'Yes, I'm afraid so,' the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence
before the senior lady replied,
I'm wondering, then,
just how serious is my condition
because this prescription is marked
An older gentleman was
on the operating table
awaiting surgery
and he insisted that his son,
a renowned surgeon,
perform the operation.
As he was about to get the anaesthesia,
he asked to speak to his son.
'Yes, Dad, what is it? '
'Don't be nervous, son;
do your best
and just remember,
if it doesn't go well,
if something happens to me,
your mother
is going to come and
live with you and your wife....'
Eventually you will reach a point
when you stop lying about your age
and start bragging about it.
The older we get,
the fewer things
seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people
try to turn back their odometers.
Not me!
I want people to know 'why'
I look this way.
I've traveled a long way
and some of the roads weren't paved..

When you are dissatisfied
and would like to go back to youth,
think of algebra.


You know you are getting old when
everything either dries up or leaks.
One of the many things
no one tells you about aging
is that it is such a nice change
from being young.
Ah, being young is beautiful,
but being old is comfortable.
First you forget names,
then you forget faces.

then you forget to pull up your zipper.
It's much worse when
you forget to pull it down....

Long ago
when men cursed
and beat the ground with sticks,
it was called witchcraft....
today, it's called golf.

Two old guys are pushing their carts 
around Wal-Mart
when they collide.
The first old guy says to the second guy,
'Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife,
and I guess I wasn't paying attention
 to where I was going.
The second old guy says, 'That's OK, it's a coincidence..
I'm looking for my wife, too..'
I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate'
The first old guy says, 'Well,
maybe I can help you find her..
What does she look like?'
The second old guy says,
'Well, she is 27 yrs old, tall,
with red hair, blue eyes, long legs,
and is wearing short shorts..
What does your wife look like?'
To which the first old guy says,
'Doesn't matter,
--- let's look for yours.'
 What kids think about childbirth...
Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen , a 3-year old girl to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped  deliver the baby. Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked. 

Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. 

Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-yr old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Kathleen quickly responded, 
'He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place......smack his butt again!'

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred- ten. 

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred- ten?' 
She replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one..' 

She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there. 

The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. 

She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to a car just like hers which had its hood up and asked 'is there a 710 on this car?'.

She pointed and said, 'Of course, its right there.' the mechanic fainted

If you're not sure what a 710 is:


1.  Go to a secondhand store and buy a pair of size 14--16 men's work boots. 

2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of  Guns & Ammo Magazine.

3. Put four giant dog dishes  next to the boots and magazines.

4. Leave a note on your  door that  reads:

Bertha,  Duke, Slim, & I went for more ammo and beer. Be back in about an  hour.
Don't mess with the pit bulls. They got the  mailman this morning and
messed him up  bad.
I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard to  tell
from all the blood.
Anyway, I locked  all four of 'em in the house.
Better wait outside. Be  right back.


Fighting off a cold, have a great weekend. I'm off to bed with my hot lemon and honey drink and Cold FX!
