Friday Funnies #13 The Bathtub Test, The Winalot Diet & Mrs Browns Misunderstanding

Hey guys, welcome to this weeks Friday Funnies #13, but before we get to that let’s have a quick look at Google’s latest PR update. Yep, apparently we had a May Google update and one has to wonder how Google comes up with a website’s PR.The reason I as this is because one of my blogs, Scenic Adelaide, went from PR3 to PR0 and of all my blogs that’s probably the one that provided the most unique content of all my blogs. It also does very well in the Serps for most of its posts because of the uniqueness of those posts.

Just thought I would throw that out, but now let’s get to the funny side of this post.

The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the senior’s home, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized?

“Well,” said the director, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the

“No.” said the director, “A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?”

Everyone knows that to most people diets are not a laughing matter, they take it very serious and it’s also a multimillion dollar industry. Still that’s no reason not to poke fun at it every now and again. :devil_tb:

The Winalot Diet

I don’t like shopping there anyway, but yesterday I was at my local TESCO store buying a bag of Winalot dog food for my dog. I was in the checkout queue when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

Hellooo, what did she think I had, a porpoise, a wildebeest?

So, since I’m retired and have nothing better to do than wind people up I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Winalot Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I’d lost 2 stone before I woke up in intensive care.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Winalot biscuits and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in queue was now enthralled with the story.)

Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off the kerb to sniff an Irish Setter’s arse and a van hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard and the cashier at the next till wet herself, so they had to close that checkout.

I’m banned from TESCO in Royston now. Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of daft things to say.

And now for this weeks funny video. I’m sure you’re going to love this one.

    Loved the two witty jokes, Sire. Sadly, the video is not showing up. I am seeing an error message where the video should be. Please let me know if you get it fixed. :)

    1. Twitter:
      Never mind, the video just showed up. :) Another great one! I love watching BBC shows, and this was one I hadn’t seen before. Definitely going to have to look up more Mrs. Brown videos.

      1. Hey Allie, glad the video started working again, weird that it was playing up before though. :ponder: Not to worry, it’s woking now and I’m glad you enjoyed this weeks post. :clap_tb:

  2. I liked the dog food joke. Some people do ask some pretty damn obvious questions just to make conversation. People like that deserve to be lead on and made a fool of.

    1. Yep, do reckon they will learn anything or will they continue to ask stupid questions?

  3. I am very happy to read update of Google on your blog and feeling very pleasure to read light jokes and by watching a video that I have watched with full interest. Waiting till next Friday.

    1. No worries Azam, I will be looking forward to your comment.

  4. I like the supermarket joke, but have never herd of Mrs Browns Boys before even though I’m from the UK and have the BBC, it looks very funny.

    1. I’m glad to be able to introduce you to something new Khaled.

  5. Twitter:
    from one retiree to another fantastic winalot joke, my wife thought i had lost it until she read it she was doubled up with pain with laughing, mrs browns boys the best sitcom on tv, thank you Sire for brightening up our day

    1. Anytime Antjon.

  6. Twitter:
    The bathtub is a very nice example of people not thinking enough when facing a problem. And it is funny as well :)

    1. Right on both accounts

  7. Thanks for the laughs! The last one had me almost peeing on the floor!

    Keeps telling me that the above comment does not have enough words to post. How many are needed? Hopefully now there are enough.

    1. I’m glad you liked the joke Will.

      I’ve set it to require 20 words which isn’t too hard to achieve and has resulted in a rise in the quality of comments I have received.

  8. 20 words is easy, just the first time I have seen that many. Wish I could do it at my site. I set my GASP settings to 6 words a while ago and got some complaints.

    1. The way I look at it is those comments probably weren’t keeping anyway. Besides, most people won’t mind the extra effort and I see nothing wrong with making them work a little in order to get the link juice that most of them are after.

  9. Loved the Winalot joke. I’ve heard a variation (on the driveway licking my p—-& the wife backed over me). With the Mrs Brown one, I’ve never figured if that’s a man or woman playing the Mrs Brown part – whatever she’s friggin hilarious.

    1. Hey Bruce, I reckon she’s a bloke mate and you’re so right she’s friggin hilarious :lol_ee:

  10. What a funny blog! This totally hilarious! Especially that dog food thing, why is that people ask the obvious? Haha! Can’t imagine if that woman bought a dog food and followed what you have told her about the diet..

    1. I reckon it’s because they speak without thinking of what they’re saying Heidi

  11. It’s always fun to ready the Friday Funnies. The bathtub test was awesome. Laughed to my hearts content. Looking forward to next friday. :)

    1. Maybe you should subscribe to my list so you don’t miss out :wink_ee:

  12. bathtub test depicts good sense of humor but i couldn’t understand to have the bed near the window.What was the relation between the two?

    1. It’s quite simple really, the response meant he was a suitable candidate to be admitted and the director was simply inquiring as to what sort of room he would like. Would he like a room with a bed near the window?

    1. Yep, and there are probably a lot of them who have gained PR as well. It kind f goes with the business we’re in and Google has been known to be fairly unpredictable.

  13. :)) The Bathtub Test is hilarious! I first thought at the bucket too :)) I hope they’ll give a room with a nice view :))

    1. Don’t worry Jennifer,I’ll put in a good word for you :wink:

      1. :)) Thanks, Peter! I’m counting on you. I have to warn you, though – I’ll be expecting frequent visits and balloons

        1. Not a problem, who knows,perhaps I could even bring some chocolates :wink_ee:

  14. hahahahahahahahha that was awesome story!!!! What a Winalot diet. I like your site; you always made my day :)

    All the best,


    1. Glad you enjoyed the post Joseph. You may want to subscribe to my list so you don’t miss out on upcoming posts :wink_ee:

  15. Ehehehe, nice video xD I agree with the non-serious point of view on the subject of diet. Ok, I know it’s hard, but, as you can’t enjoy food, enjoy a good sense of humor! ^_^

    1. Glad you liked this weeks Friday Funnies Sofia

  16. I love the stories people can come up with when asked the silliest questions. Perhaps the woman was at a loss for words and wanted something to make conversation about.

    1. That’s entirely possible Andrew, especially after being on the checkout all day putting up with smart ass customers :laugh_tb:

    1. Don’t worry Marisa, at least you’re one of the few to admit it. :smoke_tb:

      Perhaps you can watch in when you come home.

  17. Your blogs are funny as always. I really love the jokes and videos that you upload and this one is no different. Just love it. I have to agree that you cannot mess with old people. They have lots of time and energy to spend on mundane talks. I have a neighbor like that and he can talk about almost any topic under the sun.
