My Funny Bone Is Broken

How do you fix a broken funny bone?

Seriously, I think mine is broken.

Scratch that last line. I'm pretty sure it IS broken.

I can't come up with anything humorous, witty or funny to write about. I've had no funny or witty comments to make in your comment boxes. I'm drawing a blank. BORING!!!!

Is there a doctor in the house?

COME ON! I am in serious need of a shot of something!

Someone, make me laugh, QUICK! This is getting ridiculous!


The Papa's said...

I too am in the same boat. I got pulled over tonight after running a stop sign, oops!!! The cop came up to me & said he'd let me go if I could tell him a joke he'd never heard before...................................................................................................I coulldn't come up with anything, except for SHIT. He let me go!!! :0)

The Papa's said...

Sometimes it pays to not be funny!

Anthon and Jennifer Ellsworth said...

Holy flip! I thought you were serious! That picture grossed me out! I'm sorry, I don't have anything to make you laugh right now :o(

Kristina P. said...

This is pretty much the only joke I know, and the same one I tell everyone. And it's lame.

Why was Tigger looking in the toilet?

He was looking for Pooh.

My 6 year-old nephew told me that, and he thought it was HILARIOUS!!!

P.S. What State do you live in?

Barbaloot said...

If this doesn't make you laugh---you may be dead inside.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I hate it when that happens. I can so relate, but I think mine might be a compound fracture.

I am sure that your witty funnyness will come back soon, but I am sure we will all still love you anyway.

So even if you comment to say, hey I am still alive, that would be great. And enough, so to speak.

And I appreciated your comment about stress and stomach aches, I think you are on the money with that one. And the drug withdrawals, why didn't a doctor warn me about that?

I think everone is feeling it! It's a combo of the weather and the economy!! Just think even though the economy is broken, mother nature will soon make it be spring with beautiful flowers, green grass and birds chirping! I love spring, it means hope, new birth of things, especially my spririts! I hope it does the same for everyone else!! Especially over at Crashes! Everyone is a little cranky and need time outs!!!

Hallie said...

April I just have to tell you that your blog is so entertaining! You are so creative and FUNNY! If your funny bone is broken I'm sure it will mend soon. :) I love to see when you have updated because you always have something fun to talk about. I wish I had some kind of funny joke to tell you....but I was born with a broken funny bone. ;-) I sure miss you!!

Melanie J said...

Oh, I soooo know how you feel. I'm having a total dry spell too. If you find the cure, let me know, okay?

April said...

Roxanne! Mouthing off to a cop! WOW!!! And you think you are shy. HAH!

Jennifer....a blonde at heart! You are a sweetheart! And I know you haven't had a lot of sleep because of your poor little baby in the hospital for almost 2 weeks! I'm so glad he's off the respirator!!!

Kristina..that reminds me! When my nephew was a baby he had a Winnie the Pooh binkie. So I say to him, "Oh, you have pooh on your binkie!" And my sister freaks out! Good times! (And I live in southern UT....I will miss your little party on Sat! I hope you have a blast!)

F! Barb! I love those guys! I hadn't seen that one before! I had just seen the Mother's Day one. My boys sent it to me for Mother's Day a couple of years ago. So, now they say F. Tucker all the time. Charming, I know! And I laughed OUT LOUD!!!! YEAH!!!!

NHC, that stress can be so hard on the stomach! I didn't even factor in the pain meds! Poor kid! As long as he knows what can be causing it and has awareness about it, that can be part of the "cure".

Spring, I totally agree with you! Usually it is sunny and nice where I am, but the weather has been gloomy, cold and overcast! Really hard on the old body! Not to mention the accompanying headaches! Everyone was a bit testy over at Crash's last night! Must be the weather!

April said... got it!!! I would be "happy" to let you know! This is kicking my butt!!! I want to find my sarcastic voice again. I miss it!

April said...

Hallie! I miss you too! And thanks cute girl! I hope that your baby is getting better too! What is with all of these babies being so sick and in the hospital! How scary!!! BTW, I think you are pretty funny! You don't give yourself enough credit!

T said...

I'm afraid my funny bone was surgically removed yesterday - because I have yet to find the humor in having my car break down AND my heater in my house crap out on the same day... the bills aren't funny...

I think the doctor would send us off on a blogging spree - because all the humor in the world is there for the taking!

robin said...

true story about the binkie... wish I never bought the darn thing... she pulled that trick more than once on me... I'm too gullible for my own good.

speaking of Pooh... what is wrong with the creators of Winnie the Pooh??? seriously... I was in a bookstore and found a Winnie the Pooh cookbook and you guessed it... they named it:

"Cooking with Pooh"

Youngblood4ever said...

Has anyone helped yet? I am so sad for you. Kinda stinks to have the funny-bone all skeewampusy like that, huh? I have many a days like that. Have you taken the serotonin trip at Crash's site? The relaxation might help. I also have some Prozac I can send to you to put you in a mellow mood, but that won't help with the funny....

HMMMMMM, trying to think of a good joke. Hey, why don't you go to my site and read all of my embarrassing moments. Or you can check out the picture of my youngest chillin' in my bra. That should bring it back.

PS it's okay to laugh at me when you read my embarrassing moments. Everyone does!

Good Luck!

dede said...

I am with you (it seems to be the trend) - my kids usually write my blog for me (but they have been more annoying than funny as of late!). SO, here is my joke (or maybe it is advice??)...

why are frogs so happy?

they eat whatever bugs them!!!

Sandi said...

I should tell Joan to forward all of her Obama jokes....pretty darn funny.
I'm grumpy too, so I am of no help. Is that Suzanne swearing up there? I was pretty sure it had to be, but then you called her Roxanne.
Lets go enter to win the HGTV house, then maybe we will win and will be happy once again.

Heidi Ashworth said...

It happens to me all the time. Take today's post, for instance. Stinkeroonie! It always gets better, though, for some reason--I think it might be hormonal. Come to think of it, I think I am going to go watch some mindless TV and OD on chocolate

April said...

T! That REALLY STINKS!!! BOOOO to things breaking down and BOOOOO to our dependance on $$$$! My toe is ALMOST healed....then I MIGHT consider a pedi...MIGHT!!!

Toad- I totally forgot about the Cooking with Pooh book! hahahaha!!!! Now THAT'S funny!

YB4 -the link that Barbaloot sent is heee-sterical!! I love those guys! I really did LOL! I will have to check out your blog (after work...I am just making these comments to prolong the agony of going in...I am sooooo tired!)

Dede!! Frogs are so smart! But if they are so smart, how do they get caught so easily? One of life's mysteries I guess! I will just have to eat what is bugging that chocolate bar in the cupboard! Yes sireee! I think I feel better already!

OHHHH....Obama jokes! And yes, Sandi, Suzanne and Roxanne are one in the same! There is a lady a work who kept calling her Roxanne instead of Suzanne, so now that's what I call her! I think she gets her potty mouth from you! I would NEVER say that word....out second....hahahaha!!!!

Heidi, eat more chocolate for me and zone away on the TV while I am slaving away at work! {SIGH} I go! Knee deep into the trenches! Wish me luck! First stupid person I run into is in trouble!

wendy said...

Wow, that is indeed serious. Lets see, how can I make you laugh. (I bent over at work today to pick up a file and did a little "foofer") you get me here. I hate it when that happens.

Anjeny said...

Aw April. If your funny bone is broken, then mine must be seriously fractured. I have been trying to funny all week but not successful at it so I'm just sticking to being sarcastic and obnoxious. My family is looking at me funny because my sarcasm is really thick right now esp when I'm talking to my hubby.

Maybe you and I can go hunt down some stupid people and throw M&Ms at them, what ya say?

I love the Pooh joke you played on your sister. Speaking of joke {this may sound really stupid but hey, I am trying here, aight?!LOL}

Ok so why do you go to the bathroom? You and anyone will have to answer me on this one, I'd love to see all of y'all's answer.
I totally DOUBLE DOG DARE you April..eheheh.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I agree with Papa's.

I think we all need to take a deeeeeep breath and get some more sleep and quit our jobs. Jobs tend to cramp our style. Especially jobs we don't love.

Or just put it in a sling and let it heal.

It sounds like everyone is in a slump. I think we should all steal some laughing gas.

I also think WHO CARES if we're not funny all the time. Sometimes it's cool to be chill.

Let's chill out (by the pool)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh I was going to tell that Kristina P joke, but she already told it.


Kazzy said...

I think you guys that write the humorous blogs are so smart and daring. Seriously, I couldn't pull it off day after day either. This is why I have set myself up as the boring lady that sings once a week and then writes a couple of weekly posts that are pretty much just little thoughts I have had. In person I can swing more wit, but when writing I am a real snooze. You will get back in your groove. Right? You will, right?

Sandi said...

Yep I think your next post should be titled "How April got her groove back" I know it is coming soon, I can just feel it!

The Papa's said...

So I totally just got pulled over AGAIN. This time it was for speeding. Guess what? NO TICKET!!!! I am amazing!!!

I think what April said is true. I must've got my swearing from you!;0)

April said...

Wendy!!! ahahaha!!! I LOL'ed!! Did you blame your "fluffy" on the judge or bailiff?

Anjeny when I say "funny bone" I really mean "sarcastic bone" and all's fair in love and war and stupid people! And I go to the bathroom cause I have to pee.

Crash...I'll be over there in the lawn chairs in a minute! I need a break! And I am quitting one of my jobs...on Friday. I think that is causing part of my funk.

Kazzy, you and I both know that you are FAR from boring AND you have a gorgeous voice! AND ONE MORE THING MISSY!!! Your writing is soooo detailed and you use so much imagery that I am embarrassed to have a blog! Alright....I am stepping down from my soap box.

April said...

Ok, Sandi, I'll talk about how I got my groove back as long as I don't have to dance! If I do, then some might REALLY think I am Elaine Bennis' sister!

Suz! Seriously! Give it a rest with the police already! Was it the same cop who came and took a report about the freak sitting in the parking lot and then started following me home?

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Dancing like Elaine Bennice- not that there's anything wrong with that, right?

I can do a mean imitation of her dancing, in fact I kind of aspire to be her some days. Not the nipple thing though. But I would love to shove people down while saying Get out. If you know what I mean.

April said...

You see NHC? You and I would get along just great! I say "SHUT UP" and "GET OUT" all the time!

Favorite line...."you wanna Christmas card? You want a Christmas card? Here's your Christmas card!"

Love the Seinfeld!

SWIRL said...

HOpe I made you smile- I love Tommy Boy too! Too Too funny!

One time while traveling.. with kids... and my husband was exhausted from driving all night.. I tried to take the kids quietly out of the room to goto breakfast and let my husband sleep- .. but you know.. we were loud. I left the room and realized I didn't have our key... so I knocked on the door.. and knew my husband was going to be grumpy...
as he fiddled with the door.. I said, "room service.. need more towels?.."
He smiled when he opened the door and said, 'that just saved you from a very grumpy man'.
Tommy Boy is one of those dumb-but so very funny.
Maybe you should watch it.
Hope your funny bone recovers soon.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

You don't always have to be funny. We love you anyway! :)

Jami said...

My silly science boy's contribution:

Two electrons were walking along. Suddenly one of them cries out, "OH NO! I've lost an electron!"

"Are you sure?"

"I'm positive."

Humor is only fun when it comes naturally. Besides maybe it's just a sprain, so don't push it. You wouldn't want to hurt it by joking around on it before it's better.

Jami said...

By the way, you have one of the prettiest smiles ever.

wendy said...

April --are you ok. It doesn't matter if your funny bone is broken. We - I - need to hear from you. lol

Anjeny said...

Just stopping by to say hello and let you know I miss ya. So please put on some bandaid on that broken bone of urs and come and play, please pretty please.

You know you don't have to be funny all the time right? I hope everything is okay on your end.

Annie Valentine said...

It's not your funny bone, it's FEBRUARY. February is national funny funk month.

Kazzy said...

Miss ya, friend.

T said...

I've been SUPER busy all week - but I miss your cheery face:

Here's my kids favorite stupid joke: What do you call cheese that isn't yours?

Nacho Cheese
Sorry, I don't know a good joke to help your sarcastic bone :)

Kristina P. said...

April, I hope you're doing OK!
