***THE OFFICIAL FRIDAY SILLINESS THREAD***

Posted on 02/01/2013 4:35:54 AM PST by Lucky9teen

National Freedom Day

When : Always February 1st

National Freedom Day celebrates freedom from slavery, and recognizes that America is a symbol of freedom.

National Freedom Day was established in 1948 to remind us that America stands for, and is a symbol of freedom for all people. The roots of this special day come directly from the end of slavery and the signing of the 13th amendment outlawing slavery.

Celebrate this day by reflecting upon your own freedoms that you enjoy by being fortunate enough to be in America. Millions of people in the world are not free.


Origin of National Freedom Day:

Major Richard Robert Wright Sr., a former slave, created National Freedom Day. He believed that there should be a day when freedom for all Americans is celebrated. President Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery on February 1, 1865. So, February 1st was chosen to celebrate National Freedom Day.

On June 30, 1948, President Harry Truman signed a the bill proclaiming February 1st as National Freedom Day.

A single glass of wine at night could mean a peaceful, uninterrupted night's sleep. Clare Valley vintners in South Australia, which primarily produce Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Grigio wines, have developed a new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic. It is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night ... The new wine will be marketed as "PINO MORE"

I’m reaching out on behalf of a fishing buddy of mine who needs some help!

His wife told him to go out and get some of those pills that would help him get an erection.

When he came back, he handed her some diet pills.

Anyway, he’s looking for a place to live. Let me know if you have a spare room or can help.

Bible Study

God does have a sense of humor!

Today’s Short Reading From The Bible from the Book of Genesis...

And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth.

Then he made the earth round ...

My Dr. asked if I was “regular”. I said “yes. I urinate at EXACTLY 7Am every morning. And I defecate each day EXACTLY 7:30 each morning.” He asked, “So what’s your problem?” I said I don’t wake up until 8:30.

An elderly couple are at the Dr’s. office for the husbands ailment.

During the examination the Dr. concerned about some symptoms tells the man; “ I want you to come back next week and bring a urine and a stool sample with you”.

The old man, who is almost completely deaf asks in a raspy loud voice; “what?”

The Dr. repeats his request several times but each time the old man unable to understand says; “what?”

The Dr. explains his request to the old man’s wife who apologizes for her husband’s stubbornness and they leave his office.

On the way home the old woman scolds the old man for not getting a hearing aid and embarrassing her.

In a gentler tone the man asks his wife, “what did the dr. want?”

Angrily she answers; “shut up will you, he just wants me to bring him a pair of your shorts”

Wife's Funeral vs. Super Bowl

Joe goes to the Super Bowl. His seat is in the nosebleed section, but at least he's at the Super Bowl.

He starts looking around the stadium with his binoculars and sees a guy about 5 rows off the field on the 50 yard line with an empty seat beside him.

This is driving Joe nuts, so at half time, he goes down and asks the guy why he has a vacant seat in such a choice location.

The guy says, "My wife and I bought these seats a long time ago. But unfortunately, she passed away." "Oh, I'm really sorry to hear that",

Joe says, "But why didn't you give the ticket to another relative or a friend?"

The guy replies: "They're all at the funeral."

A blonde got a job at the toy facory that makes the TICKLE ME ELMO dolls. The director gives her her instructions at the end of the assembly line and lets her get to work. Hours later, he’s amazed to see a HUGE backlog of dolls on the line. He gets to the end and to his amazement, he sees the blonde sealing two walnuts in a small bag and stapling them to the front of every doll. He asks what she’s doing and she says, “Just what you told me. I’m giving every doll two test tickles.”

A visiting minister waxed eloquent during the offertory prayer.

“Dear Lord,” he began with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. “Without you we are but dust. . . “

He would have continued but at that moment a very obedient young daughter (who was listening carefully to her mom [for a change!]) leaned over to her mom and asked quite audibly in her shrill little girl voice,
“Mom, what is butt dust?”
