WWTKW: Get yer laugh on

It’s Wednesday… We all know what time it is!!


Linking up with Scriptor & Kenzie for a little We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A, with this week’s questions revolving around jokes & laughter:

1.) Did you get any April Fool's pranks played on you this year?
2.) Do you take well to jokes of this nature or no?
3.) What makes you laugh?
4.) What move did you last laugh at?
5.) What is your favorite funny movie?

My answers:

1.) Did you get any April Fool's pranks played on you this year?  No, not really.  I was prepared for them, for the most part.  A few years ago, they got me with a “rumour” on the Team 1200 saying the Senators were negotiating to bring Alexei Yashin back to Ottawa, and I was all like, “What the WHAT?!?!?”.  I went to my parents’ place for breakfast, and when I shared the news with them, I remember my dad just sitting with a little grin on his face, saying, “April Fools.  Dummy.” 


This year, the closest I came to being tricked was an a girl I went to college with (and haven’t seen her since) put on Facebook that her water had broken & that she might have her baby that day.  Last night, it suddenly struck me that I’d never heard if the baby had arrived or not, and it dawned on me then… what a sucker, eh?

2.) Do you take well to jokes of this nature or no?  ON April Fools Day?  Yeah.  I’m always a little amazed that I’m THAT gullible & I forget every year, but I usually just laugh it off.   NOT on April Fools?  I’m not a fan of pranks.  I have been known to cry. LOL

3.) What makes you laugh?  I love to laugh – good comedians, funny movies or TV shows, funny family & friends… I remember once my mom commenting on all the laughing I did in the basement watching my Friends DVDs.  And they can STILL make me laugh!  Lately, I’ve been re-watching my Big Bang Theory DVDs and Sheldon DEFINITELY makes me laugh!!



4.) What movie did you last laugh at?  This is terrible, but I can’t even remember the last comedy I saw.  I’ve been in Prison Break lock-down, and I haven’t seen many movies during the past month or so!  The only one I can think of right now is Friends with Benefits.  I watched it not long ago, and it makes me laugh every time.  I thought JT & Mila Kunis made a pretty hilarious team in this one.


*edit* I realized I forgot HOP.  Watched it with the kids on Friday night, and it really is just good ol’ Easter Fun for the whole family.  Russell Brand voices EB.  And James Marsden is in it.  And the bunny poops jelly beans.  Really, how could you go wrong?!


5.) What is your favorite funny movie?  Oh, I’m not sure I can pick… I remember laughing a LOT watching Pineapple ExpressThe HangoverKnocked Up21 JumpstreetZoolander… This is gonna sound lame, but one of my all-time favourites is Weekend At Bernie’s.  When I need a pick-me-up, I often choose it from my DVD shelf!


So what makes you laugh?  Do you like playing pranks??  Go link up and share with us! :)

I love Big Bang Theory and Sheldon is just awesome. I love that there are constantly reruns of the show on tbs too. I kind of want to geek out our kid someday. I plan on making him a poster with the periodic table, or if I can find the shower curtain they use on big bang theory, even better! ;-)

Oh I love Big Bang Theory and Friends. What great shows and always a good laugh.

Stacie said...

I love Hop and the jelly bean poop!

Jillian said...

I love those shows! Especially big bang theory. I'm a little slow to get jokes so I watch sitcoms to help with that. Last Man Standing and How I Met Your Mother are great for girl is just pure goodness

Emmy said...
