- Producer15/07/2017Good Humor on BeBeeA humorous post on beBee lights up my day. It shifts my outlook on the world and on that which happens to all. A funny post relaxes, makes us smile, gets us to breathe a bit more, and yes, most probably makes us happier. Dale Carnegie said:...
Comments17/07/2017 #29 VDS BrinkLovely Gert! Humour is music for the soul. I wrote on it for Toastmasters. It is the most difficult form of public speaking as humour is not a joke, it is looking innovatively at the oddities of life, more here: http://vdsarticles.blogspot.co.za/2011/09/art-of-humor.html16/07/2017 #24 Shelley Brown@Gert Scholtz! Wow so exciting to be included with this amazing group of writers I'm honored. I can't wait to get a good laugh reading the other stories you've listed here. I agree, a humorous story can provide relief from a great laugh, change negative energy and certainly change my entire outlook! Cheers!!!!16/07/2017 #23 Randall Burns#21 Thank You @Gert Scholtz While I thoroughly enjoyed the post I didn't leave a comment as I'm not that familiar with the game. I worked with an English chef, (BIG Guy), in Toronto in the 80's who was a nut about rugby, played every weekend, and talked me into going to play with him. I said I would go and watch first, and take pictures. LOL, after watching I realized that I would probably never play as my sense of self preservation was too strong, but I used to go regularly with him to take photos. I have some friggin hilarious shots that personify your humorous dialogue here. I participate in more than enough other sports and physical activity to keep me in shape. :-) It is a great game though...16/07/2017 #16 Gerald Hecht@Gert Scholtz Once again...lack of warning...causeth me the greatest of embarrassment --as a sip of an expensive and exotic beverage was launched out of my nose towards the plunging neckline of my date's evening dress...and yet regarding the (hoped for) second date --I take comfort in your reminder of Oscar Wilde's remarks regarding the pitfall of lapsing into the endless Well of triviality --should I take this moment seriously! Thank you kindly my friend --this post could not have been more timely!16/07/2017 #14 Jim AbleThank you, Gert, for the kind shout-out. I've been asked recently why I've been so quiet about POTUS. My answer is how do you satirize c self-charicature? Instead, I give you one of my favorite pre-election reports:

Nothing sucks more than that moment...
Comments25/06/2017 #8 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI can see only one point I might disagree with: the cyclist one. I live in a huge cycling area and I have to say that most are very considerate of cars on the road. It helps that the city and county have created bike lanes all around the city and the cyclist usually 'stay in their lane'. Wish I could teach some car drivers that skill as they text and talk on their phone while easing over into my lane. I once yelled out the window: "I need a new car, just keep coming my way and you're paying for it!"24/06/2017 #6 Barbara HensleeHow long have you been IN MY HEAD?! LOL (genuinely laughing out loud). I have had about 90% of these same thoughts. Not wanting to be the one holding the remote control in a room full of people would be an exception. I think I might be a bit of a control freak. This buzz is seriously hilarious. My face is sore from smiling so big and I now need a neck massage from nodding so much! Ha! Thanks for the giggles!
Comments22/06/2017 #1 Barbara HensleeI'm here, I'm here! Your soulmate is here! It took me a while to get through that dumb door. I thought it was locked, so I stood there waiting until this 5 year old kid walked up and pulled open the door for me. Oh, now I see how it works. Then, I had to go through that revolving door thingy. I must have gotten confused because I found myself back at that dumb door again. I knew better this time, and tried to pull open that door (fool me once as they say). I think that kid locked it, the little bugger.

Comments06/06/2017 #8 Renée 🐝 CormierLOL. I have to say, I think guys that post pics of themselves without a shirt on are absolutely barfy (even if they look hot). Another turn-off is men posing in front of their high end vehicles, yachts, etc. Nothing says insecure and shallow like wealth and body flaunting.05/06/2017 #2 Harvey LloydI am living vicariously through your dating exploits. Thank heavens i have a wonderful wife. But you sure do display the reality of what's out there and happening. Great post and insight to online dating. The thing is you know the guy in the picture saw himself in the mirror and he made an active decision, somehow, this is OK.
- Producer02/06/2017Washington Post Humor The Washington Post held a contest years ago in which readers composed and sent in their worst analogies. Of the many entries received, about fifty made the shortlist for the prize of the worst analogy. Below are some of the final selection of wry,...
Comments03/06/2017 #28 Ken Boddie#24 And so, Gert, it appears that .....
Each analogy's a tragedy,
And bears no similarity,
Whilst criticism of neologism,
Will wear no popularity,
Then, dearie me, just who are we,
To disagree or to agree?
It seems to me, quite obviously,
To circumvent profanity,
We can't persist and must desist,
So we'll maintain our sanity. 😩03/06/2017 #22 Ken BoddieGert, I couldn't agree more with you that these analogies are the worst, with some of them being particularly dragged out for no apparent reason ..... unless, of course, you were to suggest that they aren't the worst, in which case I wouldn't agree with you, but, in order to avoid propagating a needless and somewhat pointless argument, I'd probably suggest that we agree to disagree ..... but only if we were actually to disagree, and since we don't appear to disagree then let's just leave it at that .... unless, of course, you have anything else to add, or to substantiate that we are actually in agreement? 🤔
