Stupid questions

It never seems to amaze me How stupid some people are Whenever I am out And take along my guitar. ''Is it a guitar'' people say ''No an ironing board'' I reply with dismay. ''Can you play it?'' ''No I just carry it about for fun'' Even though it's a heavy one. ''Are they your dogs'' When out in town ''No'' I reply ''their someone else's And I'm taking them back to get the ransomed money honey.'' After a while i's an annoyance and not that funny.

Love this one Peter . I have a horse farm and buy wood shavings for their stall bedding. A man asked me once what I used them for I told him . The blankest look I ever saw came across his face ... So I said I raised hamsters... He said ah yes nodding his head ... ( bare in mind I had 30 bags on my truck weighting around 20 lbs each ) ... Bev :)

You may not find those people who annoy you funny, but this poet surely is. I laughed the whole way through. Your replies to them are hilarious. Since you play guitar, you may want to think about turning it into a song, "Ransom Money, Honey." Sorry I haven't read you before now...my loss, but I'm not losing this one.. into my favs and a 7 for humor.

Geeze, even your reply made me laugh. What's that saying? "There's no accounting for stupidity," but maybe they should be held accountable...lol I overheard someone asking a uniformed waitress, "Can you take my order?" She smiled and held out her pad and pencil to him..."No, but why don't you take mine." He at least had a sense of humor and apologized.

Thank you so much Lin. Im flattered you enjoy my work. People can be so stupid. I was filming aircraft at an airport taking off, suddenly A voice behind me said,'is that a camera'', 'No a banana''. ''Are you filming'' grrrrrrrrrr. I used to advertise for antique telephones, and had people ring up and ask if I wanted to buy an ice box and some ladders. take care, best wishes. Pete.

Hi Skat. so good to hear from you. hope you are well.. thank you so much. I once advertised for antique telephones, and people asked me if I wanted to buy, some ladders, an icebox. I may not have many brain cells myself, but at least I can count them. take care. Pete.
