Don’t worry…be happy

Hello. It’s Monday. Let’s all be mellow as we greet the new week. Hopefully one of the following “silly-isms” will bring a grin to your face, maybe a chuckle, maybe a groan.

- Save the whales. Collect the whole set.
- On the other hand, you have different fingers.
- I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
- 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.
- I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe.
- I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
- Honk if you love peace and quiet.
- Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains.
- He who laughs last thinks slowest.
- I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.
- I intend to live forever - so far so good.
- Borrow money from a pessimist - they don't expect it back.
- If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
- Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.
- A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
- Change is inevitable except from vending machines.
- Get a new car for your spouse - it'll be a great trade!
- Plan to be spontaneous - tomorrow.
- Always try to be modest and be proud of it!
- The hardness of butter is directly proportional to the softness of the bread.

What a way to Mellow Yellow Monday!

Most of us are all obsessed with photoblogging vying the best shots the world lay in our feet, for our eyes to feast on everything beautiful Mother Nature provides; yet, we tend to put one small thing in hindsight, "humour".

This is so creatively thought of and it's wonderful to smile and laugh.

Very nice illustration with delicate tones of yellow. Nice set of one liners too, few all new to me. Great way to start a new week. Defenetly not too serious.

Who laughs the most, has best medication. :)

You have a great week!!

"He who laughs last thinks slowest."

It's the codiene-laced cough syrup, honest.

To those sayings I would add from the Mad Max series-

"No matter where you go...there you are."

I like to make up gift bags for people who visit me from out of the area.

Note cards by Mary Engelbreit are one of the items I include. I love her work and she is such a great example of what St. Louis has to offer.

Great MYM post.

Thank you Patrizia, I needed a good laugh.

The butter Murphy's Law is one of my favorites. Now the diagonal parking in the parallel universe challenges as top contender.
