Feel Good Friday

Okay, thank Debambam for getting me to post something lighthearted after my angry rant of yesterday. Also thanks to Tweetie who has some great humor on her page today.

Here are some things to make you happy today:


This got my foot tapping.


I'm currently jealous of Vice-President elect Joe Biden. He just got a new German Shepherd puppy before the Obama girls got their puppy. Now take a deep breath and everyone squeal with me "PUPPIES!!!"




Okay, here's the video posted again if you needed a little help:



And finally, just a good old fashioned joke:

Generous lawyer


A local United Way office realized that the organization had never received a donation from the town's most successful lawyer. The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute.

"Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the community in some way?"

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First, did your research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that are several times her annual income?"

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "Um ... no."

The lawyer interrupts, "or that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?"

The stricken United Way rep began to stammer out an apology, but was interrupted again.

"or that my sister's husband died in a traffic accident," the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "leaving her penniless with three children?!"

The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, "I had no idea..."

On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again, "So if I don't give any money to them, why should I give any to you?"


HAPPY FRIDAY!!
