Witty Wednesday # 47

Never underestimate the power of makeup
(apologies to my American friends but you can blame Embee for these pictures!)

So how about this one from my friend Carol:


A driver is stuck in a traffic jam going into Central London. Nothing is moving north or south. Suddenly a man knocks on his window.

The driver rolls down his window and asks, 'What happened, what's the hold up?'

The man replies 'Terrorists have kidnapped Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and Alistair Darling. They are asking for a £10 million ransom. Otherwise they are going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection.'

The driver asks, 'On average, how much is everyone giving?'

The man replies 'About a gallon.'

[For those who may not know the names (English past and present Prime Ministers and Chancellor) we are having a tough time here in the UK with prices on essentials rising above the rate of inflation and tax changes have made pensioners like myself worse off].


Do you think Embee is trying to tell me something sending this!!!!
Do you eat chocolate

Have a good day and don't eat too much chocolate!!!

Yuk, (to the last picture), the chocolate looked pretty good though!

No apologies necessary, I very much agree!
(I may have to stop eating chocolate after that picture, though.)

Putting the chocolate down as we speak. And putting my bikini back into storage.

Oh, my. Oh, dear.

That's like shock therapy! "Walk away from the chocolate and no one gets hurt!"

I might not look like that, but some days I sure FEEL like it! Maybe that's something I can be thankful for!


(headed to the doctor now to see if he can repair my damaged retinas!)

Sheesh! A little warning next time, please!! :0)

those are great apologies needed for the first one....I think most of us would agree with that comparison!!

I beg to differ on the chocolate one! A new study being carried out in England declares that chocolate is actually good for you. They are even feeding it to diabetics.

Thanks Chris! I happen to be eating chocolate when I was reading that. I am NO LONGER eating it!!

Oh I love chocolate but that make up. Wow! I'll look like a supermodel if I start wearing it? Or at least not a horses butt. :)
