After Life

March 24, 2017

Like many of you, I'm a true believer of recycling. I'm quite the hoarder. I see the pecking order of one's junk turning into another one's treasure. That's why I love going to Thrift Shops and yard sales.

In the early years of the internet, there was a joke website that declared that you had reached the end of the internet superhighway. Some weeks I feel as if I had reached the end of the joke superhighway because I could not find any new jokes to share. I've noticed that recently many of the jokes that are submitted have been recycled — they've been around forever. I think 80% of the jokes in a week are "oldies but goodies." In fact, a couple of jokes that I've illustrated and sent out have returned to me full circle without the sender realizing that I was the one who illustrated the joke. Wild isn't it?

So with this issue I want to start recycling some of my early editions of my TGIF jokes.

One reason I want to do this is because several readers have told me that they collect my emails in a special folder. (That's very flattering.) I realized that they wouldn't need to save those emails if they were readily available online.

In case you didn't know, all my emails starting in April 2014 are now preserved in Sometimes, when I have time, I even share some of the feedback I get and respond. Last week's topic for example was really heavy stuff and I didn't expect so many interesting comments. You might want to look into it. CLICK HERE

Don't be surprised if I give you credit for a joke submission in the coming weeks — you really did send it but it may have been years ago. After all, I started TGIF Jokes in 2003 — that's a lot of jokes.

You may also notice that my cartoon style has changed since then. I now use brush pen and ink sketches more often than not.... whereas before it was more felt tip pens.

Don't let this discourage you from sending me your jokes and videos. If they're new or if I haven't used them yet, it may still be chosen as the joke or video of the week.

TGIF people!

After Life

(originally shared on Aug 2006)

Martha and John were deeply into spiritualism and reincarnation. They vowed that if either died, the other one remaining would try to contact the partner in the other world exactly 30 days after their death.

Unfortunately, a few weeks later, John died in a car wreck. True to her word, Martha tried to contact him in the spirit world exactly 30 days later.

At the séance, she called out, "John, John, this is Martha. Do you hear me?"

A ghostly voice answered her, "Yes Martha, this is John. I can hear you."

Martha tearfully asked, "Oh John! What is it like, and where are you?"

"It's beautiful. There are azure skies, a soft breeze and sunshine most of the time."

"What do you do all day?" asked Martha.

"Well, Martha, we get up before sunrise, eat some good breakfast, and there's nothing but copulating until noon."

"After lunch, we nap until 2 p.m. and then make love again until about 5 p.m. After dinner, we do it again until we fall asleep about 11 p.m."

Martha was somewhat taken aback. "Is that what heaven really is like?"

"Heaven? I'm not in heaven, Martha."

"Well, then, where are you?"

"I'm a rabbit in Arizona!"

Chinese Rock Paper Scissors

I laughed so hard at this video. I was in tears. The more clueless the "victim" was, the harder I laughed.

Life is like a Jar of Golf Balls

This lesson has been going around for a while but it's still a good reminder. And if this is the 1st time for you to see this, this will be really good.

Fishing Foibles

I love fish. Especially now that I need to eat healthy. But I never got into fishing. Only tried it once. However, I can appreciate what fishermen go through.

Thanks to Joji of Antipolo, Philippines
