It’s finally here, the day we’ve all been waiting so long for and not just because it’s the day before the weekend either. Yep, today is Friday and we all know what that means don’t we? Yep, it’s Friday Funnies time and have I got some great material for you  :drunk_tb: But before we get to that I want to talk about something that is really quite serious. I’m talking about a filthy habit, one commonly known as smoking.

Unless you’re a smoker most of you would agree that smoking is a pretty bad habit, one with dire consequences. There’s a lot being done in the way of advertising to hopefully quell peoples desire to smoke but unfortunately most of the stuff they’ve come up with just doesn’t work. Until now that is, but even this one is pretty well limited to women only. So, if you have a loved one of the fairer sex who smokes and you want her to quit, the solution is simple. All you have to do is to buy her the cigarettes you see in the image below.

 Cool huh? Heck if I could find an affiliate site for this stuff I would provide you guys with a link to it  :drunk_tb:

OK, now for the joke you’ve all been waiting for.

The Nun At The Airport

A NUN WAS SITTING AT THE AIRPORT, WAITING FOR HER FLIGHT TO MELBOURNE . SHE LOOKED OVER IN THE CORNER AND SAW ONE OF THOSE WEIGHT MACHINES THAT TELLS YOUR FORTUNE AND THOUGHT TO HERSELF, ‘I’LL GIVE IT A TRY AND SEE WHAT IT TELLS ME.’

SHE WENT OVER TO THE MACHINE, STEPPED UP ON THE SCALE AND PUT HER COIN IN, OUT CAME A CARD THAT READ, ‘YOU ARE A NUN, YOU WEIGH 70KG, AND YOU ARE GOING TO MELBOURNE .’

THE NUN SAT BACK DOWN. SHE TOLD HERSELF THAT THE MACHINE PROBABLY GIVES THE SAME CARD TO EVERYONE. THE MORE SHE THOUGHT ABOUT IT THE MORE CURIOUS SHE GOT SO SHE DECIDED TO TRY IT AGAIN SHE WENT BACK TO THE MACHINE AND AGAIN PUT HER COIN IN, AND OUT CAME A CARD THAT READ: ‘YOU ARE A NUN, YOU WEIGH 70KG, YOU ARE GOING TO MELBOURNE AND YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY A VIOLIN.’

THE NUN SAYS TO HERSELF, ‘I KNOW THAT IS WRONG – I HAVE NEVER PLAYED
A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT EVEN ONCE IN MY LIFE.’ SHE SAT BACK DOWN. FROM OUT OF NOWHERE A MAN CAME OVER AND SAT DOWN, PUTTING HIS VIOLIN
CASE ON THE SEAT BETWEEN THEM. WITHOUT THINKING, SHE OPENED THE MAN’S CASE, TOOK OUT THE VIOLIN, AND STARTED PLAYING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC.
SURPRISED AT WHAT SHE HAD DONE, SHE LOOKED OVER AT THE MACHINE, THINKING, ‘THIS IS INCREDIBLE, I’VE GOT TO TRY THIS AGAIN.’

BACK TO THE MACHINE SHE WENT, PUT IN ANOTHER COIN, AND ANOTHER CARD
CAME OUT. IT READ, ‘YOU ARE A NUN, YOU WEIGH 70KG , YOU ARE GOING TO
MELBOURNE AND YOU ARE GOING TO BREAK WIND.’ NOW SHE KNOWS THE
MACHINE IS WRONG, AS SHE THOUGHT TO HERSELF, ‘I’VE NEVER BROKEN WIND
IN PUBLIC A SINGLE TIME IN MY LIFE.’ BUT GETTING DOWN OFF THE MACHINE
SHE SLIPPED, AND AS SHE WAS STRAINING TO KEEP HERSELF FROM FALLING TO THE FLOOR, SHE BROKE WIND.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNED, SHE SAT BACK DOWN AND LOOKED AT THE MACHINE.
SHE SAID TO HERSELF, ‘THIS IS TRULY REMARKABLE. I’VE GOT TO TRY THIS AGAIN. ‘SHE WENT BACK TO THE MACHINE, PUT IN ANOTHER COIN AND ANOTHER CARD CAME OUT. IT READ: ‘YOU ARE A NUN, YOU WEIGH 70KG, YOU HAVE FIDDLED AND FARTED AROUND AND MISSED YOUR FLIGHT TO MELBOURNE .’

I bet she’s cursing those dumb scales now huh?  :lol_ee:

And just to finish this weeks Fridays Funnies with a philosophical note I give to you the following quote.

Life is like a penis – simple, relaxed and hanging free . . .

. . It’s women who make it hard !!

And now it’s over to you, if you liked this weeks Friday’s please leave a comment and don’t forget to share it with those you know by Tweeting it of Liking it on FaceBook. Oh, one final thing, if you have what you think is a really good joke please email it to lottoman@buyonlinelottotickets.com with a link to your site/blog and perhaps some personal details. If I use the joke I will link to your site as a way of my appreciation. Hows that for a bit of extra linkluv?  :welcome:

Why You Should Not Refuse Being Interviewed


During my life as a blogger I’ve been approached many times to give an interview but unfortunately, due to lack of time, I’ve had to decline most of them. Emmanuel of Income Scene was the latest to approach me and luckily for him I not only had the time but the inclination to answer all the questions he provided. This resulted in Peter Pelliccia Interview – Founder Of Wassupblog.com. So, if you would like to learn a little more about me and what makes me tick why don’t you head on over to Emmanuel’s post and don’t forget to leave a comment  :thumbup_ee:

Truth be told I was crazy to refuse all those other interviews and I really should have made the time because those interviews would have had great SEO as well as great marketing potential. There are many reasons why you should not make the same mistakes I did and Im going to list them here for you.

Why You Should Do Interviews

  • Exposure: You’re a blogger right? Well something that all bloggers crave for is exposure and what better way than to answer a few questions in the knowledge that the interviewee will link to your blog in return.
  • Backlinks: Yep, something else that all bloggers crave are backlinks and just in case that first point slipped past you an interview can lead to several links back to your blog.
  • Personal Brand: A well answered interview will show the reader that you know what you’re talking about, that you’re a blogger to be reckoned with and that it would be in their best interest to head on over to your blog so as to learn more about what you have to share.
  • Helping Others: Usually, depending on the questions asked, an interview can help the reader to learn something new about certain topics and once you’ve wet their thirst for knowledge guess where there going to go to learn more?  :smoke_tb:

So, you see there are many positives for doing an interview, so the next time someone contacts you about doing one, get out of your comfort zone and jump at the chance You won’t regret it.

Good Friday And What It Means To Me


In reverence to Good Friday I have made an executive decision and decided to forgo the Friday Funnies for this week. Instead I’m going to write about what Good Friday means to me. I know a lot of you will probably skip this because you’re not religious but please don’t because I honestly believe that the story behind Good Friday can hold special significance even to those who don’t believe in a divine being, a God who loves us so much that He gave his only begotten Son up for sacrifice, a choice Jesus made willingly.However, before I get to that I want to state to all who read this post that I do believe.

I Believe In God

I believe in God, a God who loves us and is so powerful that He created all that weflower have and see around us. No matter how great man’s achievements are they pale to insignificance when held up to the beauty and magnificence of even God’s smallest creation. God to me is the Almighty, He is the Father of all and as a Father He wants all his children to enjoy His creation, to learn, to grow and to prosper and all He asks in return is that we believe in Him and in all that He has done for us. I also believe that alone is not enough as He also wants us to live a life that is pure, full of love for Him and those others who are also his children and therefore are also our brothers and Sisters.

I Believe In Jesus

I believe in Jesus! I believe that he is the Son of God. I believe that He walked amongst usJesus On A Cross as a man, that he suffered all the things that we suffer and that He did this in order to know everything that we go through. I believe that although He went through all the temptations He did not succumb to one of them. I believe that as the Son of God and because of his great faith He performed many miracles while amongst us from the changing of water to wine to the raising of the dead. I believe that he suffered the ultimate sacrifice by dying on the cross for us so that all who believe in Him and all that He did for us can be saved. I believe that He arose on the third day, that he ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, our God.

What Jesus Went Through

There are many who have made the ultimate sacrifice and of those many are reckoned as heroes. One that comes to mind is the brave and gallant soldier who steps in front of a comrade to save him from a bullet or even throws himself on a grenade sacrificing himself so that others can live. As brave as those actions are they are usually instinctive and done on the spur of the moment. One has to wonder how many of those brave and gallant people would go through with that brave act if they had the time, hours, days or even weeks, to reflect on what they were about to do.

I think of how stressed I get when thinking of the upcoming dentist appointment, or even when having to go to the doctors knowing that I could possible get an injection,,,,I hate needles :no_way: I can’t even imagine what Jesus willingly went through knowing full well all the suffering that was in his path.

There was one movie that gave me an inkling of what Jesus had to go through and that was Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (Widescreen Edition) I try to put aside viewing time every Easter to watch that movie so that it highlights just a little what Jesus went through for us.

If I have any regrets in life its that I’m not as good a Christian as I good be. I know I am far from perfect but I do know that all those times when I do the right thing it’s because I took the time to reflect on all that Jesus went through, asking myself what Jesus would have done if he was in my position.

I love reading the bible because it teaches me so much. Every time I take it up I learn something new. If people would only take the time to follow it’s teaching the world would be a better place. I know it’s helped me in my blogging career because I was able to take the time to reflect on it’s teaching. That’s why I don’t let people’s personal preference affect the way I feel or think and why I am able to offer them a polite discourse rather than attacking them angrily through the comments.

If nothing else, the way that Jesus carried Himself while He was on this earth is something that everyone should aspire to.

Happy Easter everybody. May the love of Jesus guide you in all that you do.
