Funny Friday Photos

Happy Friday to one and all! It's here. The weekend has arrived and is waiting with anticipation for all the fun to be had. I plan to write my little fingers off. And put up Christmas decorations.

Why the renewed energy toward writing book two? Because over the thirty-six hours Finding Meara was free, it was downloaded approximately 4,300 times worldwide and even moved into the Top 100 of the Free Kindle E-book chart in the US. It may not sound like much to some, but to me the weekend was monumental. Thank you to all who did download the book and I hope you enjoy the heck out of it! And thanks to all the people who have bought the book since. I so appreciate you, as well.

Another interesting statistic is that every post in November that had a picture or video of Tom Hiddleston in it has gotten over one hundred views. That's about double of what the other posts have gotten. I'm contemplating putting pictures of him on every post. Just kidding! That would be so wrong.

So! Here is the winner of last week's funny photos. I used the comments on Facebook as well to determine the winner.

Here are this week's photos! As most always, the photos come courtesy of Cheezeburger.

One warning. The meme-maker needed a copy editor for these first two, but they were still so funny I included them. There are many  I don't include because the grammar on the meme is so terrible, even though the concept/photo is funny.

To be honest, I don't try to be sexy. I already know if I did I'd look like the dog.

Actually, the top one is how I wish I looked!

And people still say dogs don't feel emotion.
I guess they've never looked closely at doggie expressions.

"I am?!"

My husband said I should include this one. Wonder what that means...

I love, love, LOVE the bottom right photo.

The way we look out here on the plains of the West, with nothing to stop the rapid air currents.

And the pun...

Satisfies both the science nerd and word nerd in me.

Do your plans for the weekend include holiday decorations?
Which is your favorite photo this week?


  1. Ahh, they all made me laugh this morning. Even the grammar mistakes. :) The dog/men one is great, but that cat with the smiley faces really made me laugh.

    We got up some of our Christmas decorations. But I've still got stuff to do. This is our first year with an Elf on the Shelf. And I'm such a bad mom. I can never remember it. The first day I forgot and my daughter (7) caught it. I blamed it on either her dad or brother for touching him.

    Each morning I've forgotten, but I've caught it before she finds my mistake. Including today. Thank goodness things are hectic on school days. (Wait--did I just say that?)

    This damn Elf on the Shelf is gonna be the death of me.

    1. I don't know what an Elf on the Shelf is, but I like shifting the blame to Dad or Brother for it not moving (is that what it's supposed to do?) If that is the case, I'm impressed you're doing it. Our elf might move twice,and then it would be frozen in a forgotten state until the end of the holiday season. :P

  2. I never pick the ultimate winner, but I go for the guilty dog.

    congratulations, 4200 downloads is spectacular!!
    I am guessing this is a chick book so I have not checked it out, am I wrong?

    1. Not necessarily chick-lit. It's a fantasy. I'm not a fantasy fan, but Lara's such a fantastic writer I liked it anyway.

    2. I never pick the winner either, Joe! I've had people say they felt cheated because they view FM as a YA (although it's marketed as adult, and Hazel is 26) and I've had people say they felt cheated because FM is more adult than they thought it should be. When I listed it on Story Cartel I said it was like a cross between Janet Evanovich's Wicked Business series and Roger Zelazny's Amber Chronicles (although I haven't read all of the Amber Chronicles yet.) Some men have liked it, some haven't. I don't know if you'd want to give it a try, or not!

      Thanks for the compliment, David. :)

  3. Hey, congratulations to the max Lara! And my favourite photo form this week are the cat smiles. :)

    1. Yay, Veronica! I'm so happy you came by! Those cat smiles are cute, aren't they. :D

  4. Congrats, Laura, I've never had a day that good.

    I loved the element of surprise, but there's too much truth in the man/dog one not to pick it.

    1. I don't have a clue what happened. It's one of those mysterious things for why it gained so much momentum so fast. I totally expected it to continue to slip along unnoticed. The fun's over now, but it was cool while it lasted. :)

  5. I really needed these silly pics today, and all of them made me smile. I wondered about the guilty dog one, and then I figured maybe it has to do with the ears. Up = happy innocence; down = nervous guilt. It's a toss-up on the "sexy look" and the windy one. Since the sight of the leaning dogs and flying fur made me laugh the most, I have to go with Too Windy. ;)

    1. Glad to help!

      The wind is so bad here sometimes that it blows over kindergartners on the playground. When my kids were about two and one years old, I'd have to hold on to them so they didn't blow away like tumbleweeds. I know that sounds like a joke, but it actually did knock one of my boys down!

  6. The rabbit smile for the cat.

    1. Hey, Sabra! Thanks for voting - I liked that one, too!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below.
