Laugh links

It’s not that I have no sense of humor. I crack people up all the time because I love to play with language. For example, I told my hubby that I need new pajamas because my pajama shirt “sprang a leak.” That’s a bit more interesting than just saying that the pj shirt is sufficiently well worn to have a hole in it. But it doesn’t work quite as well in print. I specialize in spoken one-liners.

So, in the interest of not boring my readers to tears with my usual stream of serious posts, I’ve decided to link you to some good laughs.

Without further ado:

"My Wacky Wife"

Check the comments—apparently, the “wacky wife” took my advice about doing more writing.

So here are some of the further adventures of Mark's/PT’s “wacky wife,” a.k.a. Mrs. Balabusta.

Here's another new trick I can do

And the most recent winner:
"Winter Olympics my foot"

Meanwhile, back at the ranchhouse . . . well, here’s some of Mark's/PT's funny stuff:

(My favorite is the Dentist Sketch, which made me laugh so hard I got tears in my eyes.)

Take one Meshugeneh Man (hey, he’s the one who named his blog Psycho Toddler), add one Wacky Wife, mix vigorously, wait nine months, then another 16 ½ or so years for effort, and what do you get?

Here’s the sneak preview:

More Tales of Crime and Treason on the High Seas

wednesday nights at the skiers' house

And now, ladies and gentleman, I present the “Froot-Looped” (see the comments) Adventures of Fudge the Freshman:

"when your iq reaches 50, sell"

"the promised cab driver story"

"must sleep"

This blogger may not be related, but he’s a friend of the family, having played in the same band as Mark/PT (see "What was he thinking?" and read the comments to this post and the one to which it refers—just follow the link). Here’s a funny one from him, hyperlink courtesy of the JIB Awards:

"Daddy Syndrome"

And so concludes this blogger’s Saturday Night Laughs. Enjoy!

Wow, this is a great collection of some of the family's funny posts.

But I think for the sake of completeness, I'm going to refer you to Soccer Dad's post on Relative Blogging, and check the comments there.

Definitely! :)

Re your comment to Soccer Dad's post, you mean I missed two of the family blogs?! Who are

And by the way, is Tzipster91 another relative of yours?

I had a feeling that Tzipster was Tuesday's daughter.

Glazerbeam seems to be the family political commentator.

I just checked out "Larry's" blog. (I would have checked it out sooner if I'd known he had one.) His most recent post left me in stitches. Apparently, "funny bones" are heritary. :)

On the other hand,

Oops! Didn't quite finish editing that last comment.

Three of your children are now blogging. So nu, is starting a blog a rite of passage in your family? :)

Hey, wait a minute--we haven't heard from "Curly" yet! :)

As for The PT, watch out--she's gonna name *her* blog "The REAL Psycho Toddler"! :)
