Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

1/10 - Just goof'n

Thursday, January 10, 2008

I was looking at some of the stats for the web site and looking at where people come from. A couple of people who came to my site from a family website called the “Wacky Tenny's.” They've got me listed as a favorite site! Yipee! Which reminds me. I need to update my links... Hopefully, by the time you read this, I should have them updated, over there on the right. I've been meaning to do that for awhile, thanks for the reminder Tenny Family!

Anyway, here's a couple of cool links I found there.

Here's one that shows what kind of celebrity I look like. (How do they do it??)

And here's one of me morphing into some guy named Kim Rossi Stuart. (Whoever the heck that is... But, hey, he's almost as good looking as me, right?) If you want to try some for yourself, just click on the picture somewhere.


But, I guess I should knock myself down a peg or two, least I get a big head... Son #1 got Guitar Hero III for the Wii, for his birthday. This boy is absolutely awesome at that game. It amazes me how fast his fingers fly on the play guitar. I started out on 'Easy' mode, and have mastered a few 'Medium' songs, but he can play most of the songs on 'Hard' mode.

There's got to be some way to turn that energy into something productive... Hmm...

Enjoy the Jokes

Marty, what is "wassail"
From Amber;

Happy to Educate the populace Amber...
Wassail (pronounced wossayl or woss’l)[1] is a hot, spiced punch often associated with winter celebrations of northern Europe, usually those connected with holidays such as Christmas, New Year's and Twelfth Night. Particularly popular in Germanic countries, the term itself is a contraction of the Old English toast wæs þu hæl, or "be thou hale!" (i.e., "be in good health"). Alternate expressions predating the term, with approximately the same meaning, include both the Old Norse ves heill and Old English wæs hāl.


The Navajo Times reporter was inquiring as to the secret of the long and happy marriage of Chiizhee and Rita.....

Chiizhee replied: Well, it dates back to our honeymoon at the Grand Canyon . We took a trip down to the bottom of the Canyon by mule.

We didn't go too far when Shi Heart's mule stumbled and she almost fell off.

Shi Heart looked down at the mule and quietly said, "That's once."

We went a little further and her mule stumbled again. Once more Shi Heart quietly said, "That's twice."

We got about a half-mile when the mule stumbled for the third time. Shi Heart quietly removed a pistol from her boot and shot the mule dead.

I SHOUTED at her, "What's wrong with you, woman! You're freakin crazzeee!" She looked at ME, and quietly said, "That's once."

"And from THAT moment.....we have lived happily ever after."

From and Indian Co-Worker;


It was the day after Christmas at a church in San Francisco .
The pastor of the church was looking at the manger scene when
he noticed that the baby Jesus was missing from the cradle.
He immediately turned and went outside and saw a little boy
with a red wagon walking down the street. And in the wagon was the
figure of the infant Jesus. So he walked up to the boy and said
“Son, where did you get that little baby Jesus that is in your wagon?”
The little boy replied, “I got him from the church.”
“And why did you take him?” asked the pastor.
The little boy replied, “Well about a week before Christmas, I prayed
to the little Lord Jesus. I told him if he would bring me a red wagon for
Christmas, I would give him a ride around the block in it.”
