It's Karin's birthday today. My little girl is 5 years old. :)

Mom revealed that not only did I run when she caught me dawdling along the road to school, but I ran past several houses and then tried to hide in a ditch! LOL She was embarrassed to death to take me into kindergarten an hour late and confess that I was trying to skip school at the tender age of 5 :D

I saw something on TV the other night that actually made me gasp out loud. I had just tossed back in the big chair to relax for a few minutes before heading to bed. One of those cop show re-enactment things came on, with a cop in a patrol car getting a call that all units were to report to such-and-such address and that shots were heard. So the camera follows the sirens-screaming police car to a suburban house, and jerkily follows the cop, gun drawn, up to the doorway, where he yells "Police!" and slams the door open with his shoulder. A huge group of his cop buddies are inside, with martinis in hand and party decorations and one big guy with a birthday cake. They all yell "Surprise!" and he, in his startlement, SHOOTS THE GUY HOLDING THE CAKE. Dead silence as the stunned friends stare at him and he lowers his gun. Cut to advertiser's message. Cut to Liz boggling and saying WTF??? Was that supposed to be FUNNY? Well, was. It was an ad for a cop-show parody program. bleah

I made the mistake of telling one of my all-time favorite bad jokes to a Swedish colleage a week ago, and she didn't get it. Now she repeats it, in my presence, to other Swedes, with the apparent intent each time of convincing me how bad a joke it is. I laugh my head off every time.

Why don't cannibals eat clowns?
Because they taste FUNNY!

I'm listening to Follow Me right now. WOW. It's really lovely. Am I allowed to download to my music library?

Have you listened to his other tracks? :) They're all good :)

I downloaded the whole shebang. :) I'm listening to Reunion right now. Very talented man you have there :)

First, Happy Birthday Karin!

And of course I dare with the jokes, even bad ones like that! I've always had a saying that nobody gets over here, except Anders now understands it and uses it too. When it's pouring down rain and you don't want to go out, but you have to: "Don't worry, sugar melts, shit just gets soggy." So I guess you have nothing to worry about down south there either.

Grattis på födelsedagen Karin!!! :)

1. Grattis på födelsedagen, Karin!
2. That is a bad joke, but no worse than the duck food joke.
3. Obviously, the Lawn Dog came from the Poop Polkadots story.

happy birthday to your little one!

Thank you thank you thank you for those laughs! :)

And happy birthday to the ever-spunky Karin!

(I saw the preview for that cop show...I thought it was real!)

me, too! that was why it was so awful! I literally sat up straight and gasped out loud. GEEZ!

Happy birthday to Karin!!! I love your stories of her.

I loved the joke. Stuff like that cracks me up. I'm going to add it to my list. :)

The poop polkadots were hil-freaking-larious! That poor woman.

happy birthday to karin! I hope she has a wonderful day, I really liked her 'backwards' party idea. And I like your clown joke,too!! also enjoyed hearing the end of your walking to school story. there was always so much trouble waiting to happen when you walked to school. OR walking home FROM school!!

was the cop parody show called 'Reno 911?' If so, watch it without delay - it is sooo funny.

thanks for emailing me about the comments - I've notified typepad and they just emailed me with a solution, I hope. You are very crafty in your ways to reach me!

Oh good! I've been hoping all day to hear from you...I wasn't sure you'd get the comment I left on your LJ...your yahoo mail on your site bounced, you know! I'm not sure if the cop parody show was Reno 911 but someone else commented on it, too, so that must be it. It would have been less shocking if I had known it was a parody or if it hadn't been so chillingly like something that actually COULD HAPPEN.

yes, it is now officially FIXED. Typepad rocks, especially for those of us who don't know WHAT the hell we're doing! I don't know what the deal was with my yahoo stuff, though. But all seems well now...

That COPS parody show is called "Reno 911" and it actually is really funny. I can see how that particular scene could be shocking if you weren't expecting it. They're in their 2nd season in the US.

And Happy B-Day to Karin!

Add my happy birthdays to the others, Karin. I love the interplay of humor and cluelessness in an intercultural marriage or bunch of people. I tried watching O Brother Where Art Thou with my French friend Christine, and it was torture, trying to explain all those funny cultural references. It's an adventure, what we do.

I'm not making for-real lj rounds tonight, but a very Happy Birthday to your Karin! :D

Oops, I think I just posted a comment in reply to the comment you linked to :) I was just saying that she sounds wonderful, and definitely a potential world ruler :) And I forgot to say happy birthday to her, so it's kind of lucky that I fucked up - happy birthday!

Grattis på födelsedagen, Karin!

Here is a makeover party for you, since you're getting so big!

Re: Grattis på födelsedagen, Karin!

ahahaha! Steph, that's HILARIOUS! I can't wait to show her! :) :) :)


I have to say, I love that joke, too. In fact, I used it on a bunch of postcards I sent to various people in a postcard group I belong to. It's just so corny...

Re: Jokester

I have a list of favorite bad jokes, but that one really tops them all :)
