I admit it. I’m an easy audience. I laugh easily and LOT. But I don’t have the traditional sense of humor that present society seems to dictate. I can’t stand Will Farrell most of the time (okay, I do love Pearl the Landlord, but that’s more about the little girl) and I hate the gross out immature humor of Judd Apatow and his crew. I have a very dry sense of humor. Maybe it comes from being raised on Mel Brooks movies.
Some things that make me LOL:
- Snark – which should be obvious if you’ve read Been Searching for You. I blame Clueless.
- Those memes where people rename animals or ordinary objects. I laugh so hard, I cry.
- Anything Jeff Dunham does with Peanut. Peanut is my hero.
- This ridiculously stupid video that has become a running joke at my day job:
- And this stupid one as well. I love all of Bad Lip Reading, but this one is classic.
- The minions. I am eternally a 12 year old.
What makes YOU laugh out loud?
We all need more laughter, and given this is a Celtic/Arthurian blog, I thought this might do it.
I didn’t write this. I don’t know who did. It was sent to me on a listserc back in 1997 and I haven’t been able to find out where it came from. If you know, please tell me and I’ll give credit. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.
Celtic Woman’s Rules
- Please do not talk to my breasts. You will not be meeting them.
- If you attempt to do so, you will be meeting my sword.
- My sexual preference is no. (Whoever wrote this had obviously never heard of Queen Maeve. I think this should be changed to “yes, please!” At least that would be more historically accurate.)
- Remember: my people can kick your people’s arse.
- Fifty-one percent love goddess. Forty-nine percent bitch. ALL warrior.
- Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice – say any differently and I will slice your head off.
- If you want to control someone, become a Roman.
- Breakfast is on the table. YOU cook it.
- It is not the size of your sword that counts, it is- no, wait… size does count.
- If you disobey ANY of these rules, you should better pray your horse is FAST.
Eventually, I’ll get around to doing a series of posts on women in the Celtic world: their status, rules on marriage/divorce, children, etc. (the laws are fascinating, but very complex), so keep this funny little post in mind. It’s more accurate than you may think!
