A few funny things

FOR REASONS UNKNOWN I woke up at 4 this morning, a Saturday morning on which I could have slept late.

Such a fact is funny to me because on work days my body does its best Rip Van Winkle impression and doesn’t want to move from the bed until it must.

Since I woke up at 4, I’ve been in a funny mood all day so I thought I’d try to think of a few funny things related to language.

Lewis Grizzard book titles, like Don’t Bend Over in the Garden, Granny, You Know Them Taters Got Eyes.

(I’ll take a slight detour to tell you I’ve taken several detours through Moreland, Georgia, to visit a museum with a Grizzard tribute. I have not found it yet.)

Oxymorons, like jumbo shrimp.

The word “befuddled.”

The word “bamboozled.”

Several of Chris Jones’ Friday Twitter stories, like the one in which he had a summer job as a beaver mascot at one of Canada’s national parks.

The best logo in Minor League Baseball.

(I admit this has nothing to do with language, but somebody put a butter-tongued biscuit on a baseball cap.)

Some Bad Lip Reading videos, especially presidential debates.

Last but not least, this T-shirt I ordered for my sister:

This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is, “funny.”
