Now for some fun from Sally….  


In an effort to boost sales United Airlines announced that for two weeks only, any business executive who travelled on a midweek flight could take his wife along with him for only 20% of the normal fare. In order to judge the success of this campaign, they emailed all the wives concerned, asking them if they had enjoyed their flights.

Ninety percent of the wives emailed back asking ‘What Flight?’

Somethings are better kept to yourself!

A guy goes to the supermarket and notices a beautiful blond woman wave at him and say hello.

He’s rather taken aback, because he can’t place where he knows her from. So he says,

“Do you Know me?”

To which she replies, “I think you’re the father of one of my kids.”

Now his mind travels back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife and says, “My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that wore the red tassles and sprayed me with whipped cream before coming back to my motel?

She looks into his eyes and calmly says, “No, actually I’m your son’s math teacher.”


A man goes into a drugstore and asks the pharmacist if he can give him something for the hiccups. The pharmacist promptly reaches out and slaps the man’s face.

“What did you do that for?” the man asks.

“Well, you don’t have the hiccups anymore, do you?”

The man says, “No, but my wife out in the car still does!”

Thank you for joining us today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face.. Debby and Sally.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – 31st Jan – Feb 6th 2022 – Hits 1987, Travel Column, Nutrition, Short stories, book reviews, blogging and funnies

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

I hope that you are well… Nothing very exciting to report from my end but we have had some lovely sunny days although some high winds to go along with them. I am heading to the garden centre tomorrow to stock up on birdseed and suet… and hope to pick up some early spring flowers to brighten up the front of the house.

There will be of course Jubilee celebrations today for the Queen to mark her 70 years on the throne although her actual coronation was on June 2nd 1953… An auspicious day as my mother told me that was also the day of my christening!  I think she has been an amazing monarch and certainly as I read the media headlines about some of those who have self-appointed themselves into positions of life-time power, we are lucky to have the stability of such a head of state.

This week it has been a full house as far as our regular contributors are concerned and my thanks to William Price King, Debby Gies and Carol Taylor for their amazing posts.
