My Convertible Life

Hello? Anyone out there?

My neighbor got me reading a blog called Chicken & Cheese (among others) because she knew I had WAY too much free time on my hands and needed more good things to read. So in yesterday's post, Mrs. Chicken asked people to leave comments on her post with jokes, rants, whatever, just to see how many comments she could get.

Until I started writing this blog, I never understood how much bloggers liked comments. Turns out, it's really cool to have people comment (in writing) about what I wrote and makes the whole process much more interesting. (Many thanks to those of you who faithfully comment -- am trying to do the same for you.)

So here's the deal. I'm going to share with you the MOST hilarious joke I read in the comments (thanks to Karen Sugarpants) on Chicken & Cheese. Then you write back with a comment of your own -- can be a joke, funny story, soapbox issue, pet peeve, whatever. Then I will know you're out there and will feel loved and appreciated.

Here's the joke:

A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!”

The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!”

The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

Hah! You're welcome. Now it's your turn!


  1. I never remember any funny jokes, but that one IS funny! :) PS- *love* your blog!

  2. HIGH - larious!!

    That is great. I enjoy reading your blog and I agree, comments on a blog are great too. Are you linked to our blog for the B?


  3. Yeah, comments are the best. I do have a funny quote I heard today on *gulp* Spongebob Squarepants (don't judge me). Mr Krabs said "Never before have I felt such a strange mix of pity and indigestion." It made me laugh!

  4. Oh no! Okay, I don't have a joke, but I love comments too so I'm just showing some love.

  5. Speaking of monkeys, do you watch "Clean House" on the style network? It's one of my favorite shows. Two weeks ago they "featured" a house where the homeownmers had pet monkeys- and they had over 250 monkey "collectibles"- aka monkey stuff.

  6. love it!
    wow! you have 20 followers!!!!

  7. LOL- That's hilarious! I totally know what you're saying about the comments. Sorry this is my first comment, but I do read (and have enjoyed reading!) your blog. :)

  8. I'm here but only have one little pathetic joke. What's brown and sticky? A stick. Yep, that's it.


  9. You have a great blog -- I especially like your lists of fives!

    Unfortunately, I can only remember really, really lame jokes. Such as . . .

    What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you? NACHO CHEESE!
    What did one strawberry say to the other strawberry? "If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be in this jam."
    Who's the first Irishman you see in the spring? Patty O'Furniture

  10. i don't have any great jokes but did want to comment that i so love reading your blog. and i love reconnecting with you too! :)


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
