Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Bum Off - 11/04/13

     Not a day goes by without our kids saying something that is fall on the floor funny.
     Take this weekend for example.  My sweet daughter was reading her Bible.  She recently attended Bible Blast at church and they gave her a new one, so she's been reading independently these last few weeks.  I walk into her room and she says, "Mom, I feel like I'm reading another language."  I said, "I know honey, it seems like that in some parts of the Bible."  She then says, "You know what.  If you hand me a highlighter right now, I can correct ALL of these run-on sentences."  ROFLMBO
     Just a few weeks ago at breakfast, she says, "Mom, did Nana & Papa have a car when you were little?"  Without skipping a beat, my husband chimes in: "Nope, just a horse and buggy."  Really?  Does my daughter really think I'm THAT old?  Doesn't she know the 40's are the new 30's?   I know we had kids late in life, but geez.  What's she going to say when we're 60?  ROFLMBO
      My son is funny too.  One day he woke up in a grumpy mood.  I said, "You woke up on the wrong side of the bed."  He declared, "I did not.  I was in the middle."  ROFLMBO
      And this one happened several years ago when he was in preschool, but it still makes us laugh.  We had gotten KFC on Sunday for a picnic & hike on the Natchez Trace.  We had some leftover so I packed a chicken leg in his Monday lunch.  His teacher said, "Did you go to Kentucky Fried Chicken?"   With such innocence he said, "No, I got this in Franklin, Tennessee."  ROFLMBO 
      Then there was the time my parents pulled out a very ripe banana to eat.  He says, "Does that have caramel on it?"     ROFLMBO
       Finally, one more from this weekend.  We're at dinner Saturday night and my husband, like many men, has an Adam's Apple.  My daughter says, "Daddy, can you make your Applebee go down?"  ROFLMBO
       I feel so blessed to have these little laughter makers under my roof.

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
