Friday Funnies Nostalgia

EATING IN THE FIFTIES

Pasta was not eaten in Australia. Curry was a surname. A takeaway was a mathematical problem.    A pizza was something to do with a leaning tower. All potato chips were plain; the only choice we had was whether to put the salt on or not. Rice was only eaten as a milk pudding. Calamari was called squid and we used it as fish bait. A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining. Brown bread was something only poor people ate. Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking. Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.  Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. Fish didn't have fingers in those days. Eating raw fish was called poverty, not sushi. None of us had ever heard of yoghurt. Healthy food consisted of anything edible. People who didn't peel potatoes were regarded as lazy. Indian restaurants were only found in India. Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognised food. "Kebab" was not even a word, never mind a food. Prunes were medicinal. Surprisingly, muesli was readily available, it was called cattle feed. Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than petrol for it, they would have become a laughing stock!! But the one thing that we never ever had on our table in the sixties..... Elbows or Phones. Now for the next part of this weeks Friday Funnies. You could say that this one follows on from the previous one. :wink_ee: I have something that I know will make you really Laugh Out Loud!

WHY SENIORS STILL NEED NEWSPAPERS

Friday Funnies

I was visiting my daughter last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

“Come on dad! This is the 21st century,” she said. “We don’t waste money on newspapers. here, use my iPad.”

Shark Jokes Friday Funnies #309

I’m pretty sure this is my first ever shark jokes post.

Shark Jokes: Why Sharks Circle Before Attacking

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship. “Follow me son” the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.

“First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing.” And they did.

“Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing.” And they did.

“Now we eat everybody.” And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, “Dad, why didn’t we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?”

His wise father replied, “Because they taste better without the shit inside!”

Shark jokes also come in the form of memes, especially when you own the Creator:tongue_laugh_ee:

Shark Jokes: The Prawn Who Became A Shark

Two prawns were swimming around in the sea one day. They were the best of friends. The first one was called Justin and the second one was called Kristian.Thier biggest problem was the sharks that were constantly trying to eat them.

One day Justin couldn’t deal with being constantly threatened by the sharks. He said to Kristian, “Man, being a prawn sucks big time. I wish I was a shark, and then I wouldn’t have to worry about being eaten all the time.”

As he said this, a large mysterious cod appeared and said, “Your wish is granted!”

And believe it or not, with that Justin turned into a fearsome shark.

Kristian was scared shitless and swam for his life so his old friend wouldn’t eat him.

As time went by, Justin found his new life as a shark to be boring and lonely. None of his old friends would let him get near them as they thought he would eat them and so they just swam away whenever he approached.

It took a while, but eventually, Justin realised that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.

Then one day he was swimming all alone as usual when he saw the mysterious cod again. He thought it’d be better if he could go back to his old life, so he swam to the cod and begged to be changed back. The cod worked his magic, and suddenly Justin was a prawn once more.

With tears of joy streaming down his cheeks Justin swam straight to Kristian’s home.

As he opened the corral gate, the happy memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted, “Kristian, it’s me, Justin, your old friend. Please let me in.”

Kristian replied, “No way! You’re a shark now, and you’ll just eat me. I’m not being tricked into being your dinner.”

Justin shouted back “No, I’m not a shark anymore. That was the old me. I’ve changed. I’ve found Cod. I’m a prawn again Kristian.”

educational games

 life skills. It is important to include playtime in the routine of kids. The activities engaged in during playtime can also be tailored to enhance strategic thinking, problem-solving and emotional skills. Here are some educational games to play with kids. These games were selected based on their ability to develop essential skills in children.

Kids learn fast and soak up activities from their environment really quickly. So, educational games, puzzles and hard riddles that challenge them should be aimed at teaching them essential skills in a fun and relaxing way. Everyone from teachers to babysitters to parents will find the following games enlightening for kids.

Hide-and-seek

Although this is an old and traditional game for kids, it is still very much relevant in helping them to build essential life skills. Here’s what a child learns from hide-and-seek. When you hide and tell the child to find you, they begin to engage their minds in exploring possible hiding places. As they engage their minds, they also are building up critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Also, as kids hide, they analyze the environment and hide in most suitable places engaging their minds and building up analytical skills. Hide-and-seek is also so much fun, so you get to build these skills while having fun.

Simon says

This game is ideal for toddlers, as it helps them build communication skills and develop a healthy respect for authority. In Simon Says, the adult or older person is Simon, and the child must obey will Simon’s instructions. Simon says also improves the listening abilities of kids, as the adult can twist it up by giving instructions without adding the “Simon says” prefix, which means students must listen intently. This game is also a lot of fun as weird instructions could be incorporated.

Puzzles and Riddles

Puzzles and riddles are both traditional and effective games for building essential skills in kids. There are also several age-appropriate puzzles for toddlers. Puzzles can build different skills in children, from critical thinking skills to problem-solving skills. Puzzles can also build emotional skills and team spirit in children. Riddles are always a fun and exciting challenge for both young and old. Most children thrive on challenges and riddles are a great tool for this. Simply collect some good riddles with answers and tell the kids that you want to see if they are able to win the game of correctly figuring out the answer. Riddles help children learn higher order thinking and reasoning skills.

Odd one out

Odd one out is tailored to help children identify distinctions. These distinctions could be in colors or other characteristics. This is a good game to play with a child that is struggling with identifying colors.

Scavenger hunts

Scavenger hunts are great for developing cognitive skills. Scavenger hunts could also be modified to help kids with counting and identifying colors and items. If a child has an issue with telling two things apart, scavenger hunts are ways of helping them through it. Scavenger hunts can also be themed. Find me two pairs of purple socks and a blue napkin, for example, teaches the child colors, the meaning of pairs and what a napkin is.

The games highlighted above are both fun and education. They will be even more fun if you attach rewards to them.
