It's the Groaner of the Week!!!

It's Monday again and it's time for a good groooooooooaaaaannnnn to start your week! Don't forget to send me your favorite groaner for The Friday Groaner so we can keep it going! My email addy is in the sidebar. Our guest groanmeister this week has another winner to end your work week that I'm sure y'all will enjoy! And here's the goody for this week:

Mr. Combs had a furniture store specializing in ornate antiques in the Baroque style. A dedicated business man, he had walking pneumonia last month but was at the store anyway. He was sitting in one of the Baroque style chairs and rubbing Vicks Vaporub on his aching chest when he serendipitously discovered that the soothing ointment gave the furniture a wonderful, deep, rich shine.

He passed along his discovery other furniture store owners who were not competitors because their furniture was more modern in style. It wasn't long before he received reports that the Vicks treatment not only failed to work on the modern furniture, but actually ruined some of it!

Mr. Combs is very unpopular now and his only consolation is that he learned one important rule:


If it's not Baroque, don't Vicks it.

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!

  3. I deleted a message because it contained a groaner and I'm posting my thoughts here because the party in question hasn't an email listed on his/her blog.

    The Friday Groaner is dependent on submissions by y'all. I started it because I'd become aware that y'all wanted to participate. Please use the email address in the sidebar, KayD1010@gmail.com, to send any groaners you have and they will be published on a Friday and you will be notified and given attribution.

    I will not use your email address for any other purpose or share it with anyone without your permission unless, of course, you're one of my long-time friends here and we email anyway!

    To the person who posted the groaner in comments, I will feature it as a Friday Groaner soon. It was cute.


    Thanks for your cooperation!
