Ha Ha Ho Ho: Friday Mishmash

Cooking up a stew of totally unrelated information. I gotta be me.

Thank God for funny emails. Can’t get enough laughter, especially at this time of year. Don’t you dare slam me if you have PC issues – I didn’t make this one up. Sharing:

“Three men married wives from different countries.  The first man married a woman from China.  He told her she was to do the dishes and clean the house.  It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to a clean house with dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Italy.  He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning and cooking.  He saw no results the first day.  He saw it was better the second day.  By the third day, the house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a woman from Texas.  He ordered her to keep the house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. The first day he didn’t see anything.  The second day he didn’t see anything.  By the third day, some of the swelling had gone down, he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.” (compliments of KK)

Now that I want them, I can’t seem to find any of the others that made me laugh.  But I will … maybe.

Got a card from my dear Austin Ann the other day. She so “gets” me. And it’s nice to be gotten – non? Written by the Mincing Mockingbird, the front of it said:

“That’s a crazy idea.


It doesn’t make sense.”

“You’ll do it?”

“Of course,” I replied.”

And that’s the way we roll ….

  1. You are so good at rmembering the joke. I hear jokes, think they are great, and in a second, totally forget them.

  2. Thanks for the laugh! A great start to the weekend!

  3. Totally love the whimsy of this post!

    I’m blogging from Haiti and shared a rant this morning that might make you laugh. It’s totally not PC–but—–

    Sometimes you just have to rant! But you rant with flare!

    You’ve made me smile in Port-au-Prince this morning, and it’s not a very smiley place—–so thanks!

  4. Austin Ann sounds a lot like MyPalSal.
    Have a good weekend, Izzie.

  5. LMAO at the Texas wife! How very true! Believe me, if I told the wife to do those things, I would be blind for a month! 🙂

    • Believe me, Idiot, any man who gave me those marching orders wouldn’t have eyes to be blind about. And he’d be missing some other equipment as well. And that wouldn’t matter as I’d throw him out with the trash. What can I say? I live in Texas! Oh Idiot, I know we have these hoarder word wars, but there is a REAL hoarder that lives across from me. Shall I take photos and send them to you? UNREAL!

  6. I wonder if that is what happened to why the Idiot is now the house husband? He may of put the demands on too thick to the wife and after came to, he found himself in the laundry room with an apron on, a cleaning bucket at his feet and a grocery list and menu plan stuck in his hand. 🙂 This was great and I love it! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I love your story about the men who married women from different countries! Hey, I used to live in Texas, so I appreciate that third guy’s dilemma. Sounds as if he bit off more than he could chew! Thanks for making me laugh out loud!

  8. Nothing like poking fun at Texans…from a good, safe distance of course. 🙂

  9. Love the card…Happy Friday, Izzie!


  10. Happy Weekend to you, sweet Wendy!

  11. Gotta show some respect to those Texans! Hilarious!

  12. Interesting stuff Izzie.

    It is good to have friends that we have a special bond with.

  13. Great joke. Gotta love those Texas women!
