For no reason whatsoever, here are some things that make me giggle! Happy 2015. Hope it's a great year for you. :)
1. The Australian army! (not the whole army, but this is funny!) ;)
2. William Shatner and literal thinking, what more could you want?!
3. The worst bank robbery ever - and it was in Scotland!
"Robbing a bank isn’t quite as easy as it might look in the movies. That said, the three men involved in the attempted Rothesay bank robbery of 1975 probably handled the situation in the absolute worst way possible.
Upon first entering the bank, the unarmed trio managed to get stuck in the revolving doors after trying to push them the wrong way. At this point, it wasn’t clear that they were robbers, and the bank’s staff kindly helped them out of the predicament. Shortly afterwards though, they returned and demanded five thousand pounds.
Unfortunately for the robbers, they caught the staff at a bad time, who were still laughing among themselves about the revolving door incident. They thought that the robbers were just playing a practical joke, and didn’t take the demands seriously. Puzzlingly, the ‘gang’ leader lowered the demand to five hundred pounds, which was met with further laughter. To show he was serious, the leader jumped over the counter, fell, and twisted his ankle. In a panic, the others ran out of the revolving doors… only to get stuck again in the exact same way."
4. The french munitions guy who took over the ammunitions dept as a protest to get his job back...
This one boggles the mind. Did he honestly think the government would say, "give that guy his job back, let him take care of all the weapons, he's so stable..."???!
5. Tattoos that haven't been spellchecked...
6. Some contemporary art.
Okay, so I know this is off the wall and most of you are just shaking your heads right now and wondering if I need some medication! But this work is hilarious and I love it. I first saw it in an exhibition of contemporary Italian art at the Tate Modern years ago. In the corner of the vast gallery, was a tiny scene with a squirrel who'd had enough. You have to wonder at the workings of a mind that finds a dead squirrel and thinks: "I know exactly what to do with that." !:)
9. spelling mistakes tickle my funny bone.
10. headlines that really should be checked before going to print.
That's it for now. Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year's. :D
