I have mentioned before how Monday gets a bad rap and most people don’t like it very much. So why not make it more fun? 🙂

Mirthful means jolly or merry and what better to make someone feel that way than to share jokes and humor on the most hated day of the week? I don’t know how to make one of those cute little pictures that say “Mirthful Monday” to which I can make a widget, so for now, I guess I will be without one! Nevertheless, I hereby proclaim Monday’s on my blog as Mirthful Monday!

Enjoy the comedy and try not to dirty yourself too much rolling on the floor. I am dedicating this first Mirthful Monday to jokes about Typos in honor of my fellow bloggers who shake their heads in horror when they see them all around!

1. A daughter sent a telegram to her father about passing her B.Ed(beginning education?) exams, which the father received as ” Father, your daughter has been successful in BED.”

2. A husband, while on a business trip to a hill station sent a telegram to his wife “I wish you were here.” The message received by the wife was “I wish you were her.”

3. A man wanted to celebrate his wife’s Birthday by throwing a party,so he ordered a birthday cake. The salesman asked him what message he wanted put on the cake. He thought for a moment & said”U r getting older but U r getting better”.

The salesman asked “how do u want me to put it?” The man said “..put “U r getting older” at the top & put “but U r getting better” at the bottom.”

When the cake was unveiled at the party, all the guests were aghast at the message on the cake. It read:
“You are getting older at the top, but you are getting better at the bottom”

Morals of the Story:
Double proof read everything before you send.
Don’t trust others to write it right for you.

  1. Tell me about it… The tyranny of typos haunts me regularly… I blame it on my long fingers and then on my eyesight…
    Either way, I detest them… Great jokes Sharon… Makes me feel better as I know I’m not alone. 🙂
