Stories in Humor that you’ll love, handpicked by our team.
It all started during the "Short & Sweet" challenge, as I sat counting both syllables and letters for my last-minute haikus. Remember how they granted an extension because of a technical difficulty on the final day? I wrote several during that time – haikus, that is – and while I was rushing to get them submitted, there my husband was, writing haiku after haiku while he lounged in bed, loudly mocking me. Counting on his fingers.

Three Minute Reads
— Hooking in the Reader — MANY among us write with an introduction using logos and 'Handles,' I use my name proudly for better or worse — I Yam what I Yam — And that's All that I Am. I know that I'm not everyone's page-turner preference; I'm ok with that. If we are going to be out-there within this fabulous platform on a Global basis, then be out there as YOU! How would your closest friends over the years describe you? Who from our VM Village would you like to sit down at the Cheesecake Factory and actually speak to in person. No, not just a virtual friend, but touchy-feely 'real,' I can think of several, I'd even treat!
Classy Car Repairs
Last Saturday while loading up some groceries, I noticed that my trunk would not close. It appeared that the latch was broken. But that didn’t stop me from attempting to slam it shut about a dozen times with all my might, hopping up and down on it like a lunatic. There may have been a few tears. My efforts were unsuccessful and my daughter acted as if it was something I’d done on purpose to inconvenience her.
Crime of Fashion
I am not a particularly formal person. My grammar is lax. My hair probably needs brushing. My housekeeping is casual at best. No kitchen floor is swept before it sounds crunchy.
Dear Ghosts In My House
Dear Ghosts in my house, You are really annoying! I have lived in peace with you for over twenty years, and I continue to live in peace with you.
Yep this is a Temu thing. An impulse thing. A Get Myself In The Spirit thing. It’s a camisole jumpsuit, because it would look amazing on my body type maybe if I am lucky and everyone squints and I stay either standing up straight or laying down flat, and sometimes mama buys stuff when she should be sleeping.
Norm’s Diner Comes Out Fighting!
A restaurant in the US is charging some of its customers for their inability to control their children while they dine there. Hidden away at the bottom of its menu, the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant tells its diners of its “adult surcharge” — adding three dollar signs next to the words: “For adults unable to parent.”- Sky News, 29 October 2023
The Five Types of Meat You Get in Heaven
Note: my head has been in a weird place over the last few days. I have just lost my godmother after a very long illness, and even though it was not a surprise, I am still getting used to a world without her love, attitude...and wicked sense of humour. I had this in a notebook for quite a while, and I needed a laugh at the exact moment when I rediscovered it this morning. The title of Mitch Albom's book was perfect for a parody...

TYPE ~ You Just Know ~ If people were to admit it to be so, most aren't even honest with themselves, what really attracts those to the opposite sex or neutral sex for that matter? Do we have a 'Choice' – Our heads rarely listen to our hearts! What comes 'naturally' – what does the heart want? It will tell you what to do. But 'scent' is what attracts (pheromones) me most; the aroma. If I were to say blue eyed blond, you'd think I was just an eye man; nothing more. Some say personality and others have 'lists' of attraction-explanations. When being 'honest' interested parties 1st have to get past initial physical-attraction. I believe most people have preferences when it comes to physical attributes, but oftentimes other qualities override these considerations, of course.
Dear Sweet Looney Partner, With Halloween around the corner, you would expect a spooky story from me. Let me surprise you with a funny story instead!
Hagars House of Hot Ribs
When asked to write a restaurant review, one first needs the time for the world to cease spinning before the proverbial pen is put to paper. Who knew after a night out I’d see the sun rise from the cold tiles of my bathroom floor? Maybe if I had known, I would never have entered ‘Hagar’s House of Hot Ribs’.
