On the heels of my Friday whine, a cheesy post might be exactly what's needed today.
I was surprised to find so many definitions of "cheesy" online, at least in the sense that I mean it here:
- tacky, tawdry, trite
- lacking style or good taste
- of poor quality, shoddy
- corny, cornball
Stop the presses! I think that last one is just what I'm looking for.
And that brings us to corny jokes, doesn't it? Sure it does.
How do you fix a broken tomato?
With tomato paste!
Why do flourescent lights always hum?
Because they don’t know the words.
How do you stop a charging rhinoceros?
Take away his credit card.
Why did Beethoven get rid of his chickens?
Because they kept saying Bach, Bach, Bach!
Why do cows wear bells?
Because their horns don't work.
Guess who I saw today?
Everyone I looked at.
And somehow they are even more delightful with pictures:
And this joke made me smile out loud:
Searching for these jokes on the internet actually did make me feel pretty good. Like this, really:
In future, when I feel like having some whine, I have to remember this: find cheese instead!
It's settled, then:
Over and out.
