Welcome to my Motherwise March 17, 2008 edition of the family funnies. Well, it’s been so much fun going through all of the entries trying to understand how some folks could possibly misunderstand the specific directions I left to only to find some people submit blog posts totally unrelated to family and parenting humor. No, dogs are not kids, marketing isn’t funny. Nor are cooking articles and paying off your mortgage, and they are not even remotely related to this carnival topic. God help me, I feel like I am talking to my bloody kids for crying out loud. The rest of you I want to thank for following directions and providing those of use who enjoy family funnies with material that qualifies as such. Good job. My faith in mankind is restored. I may even do an April carnival. Bless you!
cate3 presents Humor: Who’s on First – the computer version posted at Why Homeschool, which stars Henry’s modern day version of “Who’s on First”. While this doesn’t mention families directly, I think since you homeschool children, it is at least in the same general universe and therefore related to our family funnies topic. And it’s funny.
Madeleine Begun Kane presents Motor Boating Just Isn?t Our Speed (Humor Column) posted at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. I give Mad lots of extra thanks because her entry has the word humor in it making it very easy for me to see that her blog post certainly belongs in this carnival. Thanks, Mad. And she is funny too.
Kara Williams presents Family Air Travel Stories: Even Young Kids Develop Brand Loyalty posted at Traveling Mamas, saying, “Note: MudslideMama (Jen) wrote this post for TravelingMamas.com”
Don’t miss Can’t Touch This:Fashion Fads from the 1980?s You Don?t Want to Remember! posted at CustomizedGirl Blog, teasing us by saying, “Who doesn’t remember these clothes coming out during family events!?” (She did include family in her description so I am giving her credit for this effort. She’s included by the thinnest of margins.)
Lena Santos presents Kitchen Buff, err Bluff! posted at and life goes on….., saying, “a new wife bluffs her way in the kitchen”. If she can bluff her way in the kitchen, I am going to let her bluff her way into this family funnies edition. I know it’s a stretch, but you need a wife to make a baby – it’s a future family just waiting to happen.
Michelle Robinson presents Four Kids for the Night posted at Mad About Kids, saying, “Kids can drive parents crazy sometimes, and sometimes unusual solutions are the best!” Many thanks to Michelle for including the word “kids” in her submission making it obvious that her post is a keeper.
Angela presents The Bulls: An Undefeated Hockey Season posted at Reality Testing, saying, “I’m in again–thanks!” Oh, no, Angela. After looking over all the unrelated blog posts submitted, I thank you!
That concludes this edition.
