Sunday Funnies V

maybe they just need some oinkment
when pigs get laryngitis
    i suppose they feel somewhat disgruntled

english teacher's nightmair
observed in a book store: 
    "sale - all spelling workbooks 50% of!"

too much of a good thing
poetry teacher:     "i can't say enough about not 
    saying too much"

paternal paradox
my grandfather once told me
    "never trust anyone... trust me on this"

where the h am i?
to a dictionary editor
     'h' is the middle of nowhere

such a critic
i tried that new restaurant on the moon
     good food but no atmosphere 

a pun further analysis
the bonfire sank my boat   
     you can't have your kayak and heat it too

i like the one about your grandfather - all good, but this brought out a loud chuckle. You and Tom are SO good at posting humorous short writes. Well penned my friend. POETRY HUGS AND BLESSINGS, Jennifer.

Glad to see the return of your weekly funnies John (even if only once in a while) My prize for most original goes to 'you can't have your kayak and heat it too' :)

My fav was "where the h am i? to a dictionary editor 'h' is the middle of nowhere"

They are all great John. Hard to pick a favorite but since this is a poetry site I'll go with the third one. Thanks for the chuckle.
