Sarcasm At Its Best

There are just some emails that tickle your funny bone, and I received one today that did just that! I thought I'd share it. Perhaps you've already received this one, but I just can't help but share it. Thanx, Cuz'n Glenda, for the laugh. Although I am not the one who personally experienced this, I'm substituting my own dogs' names to make the story more personable. Here we go:

Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina Dog Chow at Wal-Mart for my dogs, Mick and Duke. I was about to check out when the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think that I had? An elephant?

Well, she asked the stupid question, so on impulse, I told her that no, I did not have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again, although I probably should not because I ended up in the hospital last time. On the bright side though, I had lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of every hole in my body and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

(I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was enthralled with my story by now.)

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food had poisoned me. I told her no; I had stopped in the middle of the parking lot to lick my butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!

Wal-Mart won't let me shop there anymore.

Hahahahhahaaa. Sorry, folks, I just couldn't help it. Now THAT's funny. Oh dear, guess I'm just in "one of those moods" today. Hahahahahahaa.

OK, that's it for now. Got lots of work to do (cleaning the basement.....argh!). Just wanted to take a moment and share that with you.

Everybody do the Friday Happy Dance.
