Tickling Your Funny Bone

It’s been a hectic (busy) few weeks and I needed a good laugh. I came across these sayings that tickled my funny bone. To tickle is to touch someone else lightly to make them laugh. To tickle someone’s funny bone is to make them laugh.  (Did you know that it’s impossible to tickle yourself? This is one explanation why.)

These tickled my funny bone. Do they work on you?images1.jpeg

  • There are three kinds of people in this world: those who can count and those who can’t.
  • The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 (equal) chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability (likelihood; chance) you’ll get it wrong.
  • How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you’re on.
  • Buy one for the price of two and get the second one free!
  • Junk (useless things) is something you’ve kept for years and throw it away three weeks before you need it.
  • If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
  • Education is what you get from reading the small print (details, usually in a contract or document). Experience is what you get from not reading it.

    I can’t imagine such explanation about why we can’t tickle ourselves, also I am astonished when I know what some times scientifics are looking for, but indeed that is very interesting.
    Good sense of humor Lucy, to look for these funny thoughts, I like every one specially how long a minute may be and the difference between education and experience.

    I have to add now that I enjoy every script you write to ESL and be sure that without your great humor and such good writting that you put in all them nothing sould be possible.
    To study is a very hard work, even harder is to learn a lenguage without living the place where it is talking. But your magic do such a miracle that for me it is a pleasure to listen every day the voice of Jeff, yours, and to follow all what you write in every podcast. ¡ All them are a treasure to me ¡.
    Thanks a million Lucy for your diary work that is like soft tikles to our minds.

    Do you know what is the difference between a man how fall from 1.floor and the another from 100.floor ?
    it’s very easy the first one says BOOM …AAAAAAAAA and second one says AAAAAAA BOOM.

    Do you know way some people never close bedroom’s door ?
    because they don’t like the people see them throw keyhole.
