Silly Sunday: That Was Quick!

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
1. Post a joke.
2. Link Up with the URL to your joke in the Linky Tools Widget.
3. Read my joke.
4. Leave a comment to tell me how much you enjoyed my joke.
5. Try and visit a few others participating in Silly Sunday.
6. Go to Sandee's site, linked above, and get the Silly Sunday code for your blog, too!

Brother-in-Law, The Mouth, has me do his taxes.  (For those who are interested, he is termed The Mouth because he can eat more than anyone i know and he can compress the most words into the smallest ideas of anyone i know, too.)

There will be more discussion of this on the Tuesday Coffee Chat, because i have something i need to get off my chest, but for now, suffice it to say he's getting a refund.  While he's grateful and has big plans, i know from past experience it won't last him long.

Boudreaux know dat feelin'.  He an' Clothile done file, an' dey be gettin' some back, but he be tellin' Thibodeaux, "De money don't go as far as it used to!"
