Another Fabulous Friday Funday, September 23

_— Oe) ————

Ah, Fridays. What would most of us do without them? For so many, they're the end of the workweek, a chance to relax and kick off our work shoes, sit on the couch, and have a glass of wine or other spirits. We look forward to not being so structured for a couple of days. We look forward to playing, coaching, or watching sports. We spend quality time with our spouse, kids, and/or friends. 

Fridays are great! 

And for more than a year now I have used Fridays to remind myself and others of the gifts that laughter gives us. 

Unwind. Relax. Enjoy. 

                                         You know some weeks feel like this . . . right?

                                      Here's an example of when NOT to use a comma . . . 


These T-Shirts were tested

Brush Up on Your
American Grammar





             This is how many Americans in the south & midwest have been feeling lately . . . 


                                                                     Good to know!


                                                              And my favorite for today:


Which one made you laugh the most?


Many of these funnies come from Facebook pages that you can access any time you're in need of a few more good laughs. My favorites are Single Dad Laughing, I am not a grammar cop, Language Cranks Redux, Tannuzzo Copywriting, and Wrong Hands.


If you enjoyed the post and laughed at some of the pictures, I hope you'll share it with your connections, so they may laugh as well.  

My previous posts can be seen here on my website, and they're easy to find because they're categorized. Just type in a word in the search box on the topic you're looking for and see what I wrote on it.


Do the associates in your company look and sound as smart as they are? They would if they could take one of my Brush Up on Your Skills workshops right where they work. If your company hires outside experts to teach any topic to its associates, please share my posts and website with your Human Resources or Training Manager.

I offer free generic Brush Up on Your Skills workbooks in a pdf format in American grammar, business writing, and interpersonal skills. They show what I teach in my three-hour corporate classes.

Want one? Let me know which one, and please send me your email address. I will not use it for any other purpose. Honest!

Love these! Especially the very first one, that face just made me smile. Remind me not to go to DQ for a blizzard, ewww... Perfect Friday funnies, RooksSusan Rooks
Thanks for that, Franci Eugenia Hoffman! My favorites are the phone numbers (which are real, by the way), and those silly cartoons.
Yes, me too, Deb Helfrich! It looks as though someone just put the number upside down . . . but we've all had weeks that did feel that long!
These are all funny, Susan. I like the Road Closed and the Top Gear one. hahaha
I always appreciate your enjoyment and support, John Rylance!
Oh my, Paul \! Harmful if swallowed indeed! Thanks for spreading the joy today!

☺️ for them all. I agree re the comma. Perhaps it would of been better to have written "Made by" rather then "Made with Girl Scouts" My favourite is the Top Gear one, it epitomises the programme.
Yes and yes, Donna-Luisa Eversley! Scary how some things get written sometimes, isn't it?
