I know that I’m not the only one who is occasionally stuck by a thought so amusing that it makes me laugh. So it’s time to fess up to yours
As is often the way with these sorts of things, not all of the thoughts are funny to others, or even make sense. I actually took this one to be a sign I was over tired, but I’m still somewhat amused days later (which may be an indication that I’m losing my mind but whatever).
I was doing nothing in particular when the thought of the gameshow network crossed my mind. I suddenly imagined a wonderful gameshow I could create- one with triva questions so vague that they could not be answered correctly. Imagining hapless contestants faced with such questions- without any elaboration- as " What color would it be?" or " Guess a square" still makes me giggle.
Ok, who else has goofball thoughts, and what are they?
I have goofball thoughts all the time. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you any of them, since they are usually so inane that they pass right through my mind. They make me giggle, and then are lost in the mists of time.
However, I think it is great that you have them. I might be wrong, but I think that they keep me sane. Some people might differ. (In regards to my sanity, that is.)
Just today, I was at Downtown Disney. I saw a Wetzel’s Pretzels and thought (out loud):
How cheap! I’ll bet there really wasn’t a guy named Wetzel. I’ll bet some stupid corporate executive (whose name was something much boringer (yes, it’s a word, don’t argue) than Wetzel (like maybe Bob)) just made it up because it rhymed. But what if there was a Wetzel? :dubious: And what if he really wanted to sell ice cream, but Bob the Stupid Corporate Executive told him to sell pretzels just because it would rhyme? Poor Wetzel.
This is embarrassing, because it imvolves ANZAC Day (thing Remembrance Day in the US - which we have too), and ANZAC Day deeply moves me, and always has. Yet, in high school, one of my mates noticed that it was possible to meld the mournful bugle of The Last Post with the rather different feel of “Also Sprach Zarathustra”. So, after the solemn first notes: Da-da-daaa… da-da-daaaaaaaa", instead of “da-da-d’d’da…da-da-d’d’da”, I mentally intoned “da- DAAAAAAA!!! Boom boom boom boom…”
I still feel bad about that. And I was, deservedly, hauled out of the assembly hall by one of the masters.
I’m constantly cackling at something or other that I make up in my head. I have a friend (admittedly, she is clinically insane) who laughs hysterically at the mere implication of the phrase “Don’t f*ck with Texas,” and because of her, I generally laugh at the notion too. I also like the idea of cubic bread, bright orange pasta, and baklava sold in packages designed to look like a core sample.
I constantly giggle at my own thoughts. For instance, just now I had a memory that made me chuckle.
The visual image of my mom eating a carrot (and spittiing bits of carrot spittle) while complaining about how the cat pissed on something. “It was soaked with cat piss!”, She’d holler in outrage, spitting out bits of carrot.
It’s funny. Really. You had to be there. (And she did this more than once. She eats a lot of carrots and those cats piss a lot.)
