Friday Fun

It's Friday and it's Easter. First up, a festive Oddbox. This week, easter eggs on a tree and an economics reporter doing an Irish jig.

And now, for something new. Jokes.

Recent polls show women favor Obama over Romney in battleground states by over 18%. In response, Republican strategists urge women to get out of the kitchen and vote.

An author dies and is given the choice of going to Heaven or Hell, but is shown them both before he has to choose. His first stop is Hell and he sees writers chained to desks being forced to write for eternity and whipped if they don't produce anything. He's then taken to Heaven where he sees writers chained to desks being forced to write for eternity and whipped if they don't produce anything. He turns to St Peter and said, 'This is exactly what happens in Hell. What's the difference?' Saint Peter said, 'In Heaven you get published.'

A man professed a desire to become a great writer. When asked to define great he said, 'I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level. Stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger'. He works for Microsoft writing error messages.

Picture time.

Have a great Easter Weekend. See you on Monday.

Caitlin: You allow your husband to say that? Put him in his place. :)

Lisa: When I saw that twighlight picture I thought of you.

Kelley: It made me chuckle for a few hours.

I got a snicker out of that second joke; it really is heaven when you get an acceptance.

The Vader and cat pic were hilarious!

And wishing you a happy Easter!
