Either I’m Just Desperate for a Reason to Laugh or I’m a Magnet for Ludicrosity
Depending on your source, “ludicrosity” may or may not be a word. I honestly thought I made it up, but it’s littered all over the web – which just goes to show you that it’s impossible to be original any more.
Ever since I realized that my anti-depressant was making me happier than everyone else, then found out that someone obviously switched it with a placebo right at the moment that I was about to receive some not-so-anti-depressing news, I have been experiencing weird moments of ludicrosity that I decided I should start chronicling. If you don’t think they are funny, don’t tell me. Because I will start crying.
I had the above online exchange with a student who kept posting on Edmodo without following our class rules.
Kind of begs the question, “Why the heck did you put a door there if it CAN NEVER BE OPENED?!!!!”
So many things to love about this app. The price, the name of the company, the fact that 116 people have rated it already…
This is what happens when you buy a cheap bluetooth keyboard; they give you instructions that were apparently written by the student featured in my first image…
And finally, I think this was actually meant to be funny. I hope.

How odd, a mortician trying to be funny and hip. The old dignity approach to the gig was really the best and only way to go. Still he looks a bit like he wants to be Michael Bubble.
@David – Caleb is great, really. I’ve been reading his blog for some time now and I can only say I hope when I pass away one day my family has someone as thoughtful as him to support them through that process.
He does also believe in de-terrifying the spectre death through the use of humour. His facebook page gets a bit wacky at times. But do go check out his blog, Confessions of a Funeral Director.
Fair enough, just mark it down to one of the pratfalls of twitter. I know if I was a relative I wouldn’t be happy thinking my loved ones shoes were tied. Twitter reminds me of that joke about the man who built lots of houses, builds bridges and catches fish for the town every day but makes one transgression and that’s what they all remember.
Don’t worry. Some of his jokes have had me fidgeting around on my seat as well 😉 But once you’ve been following him for a while you realise his jokes are just jokes and as a funeral director he’s really a wonderful person.
I had no idea he even has a blog! I don’t follow him on Twitter; this was a retweet. But I might have to check out the blog now…
My daughter would love you right now for calling Michael Buble “Michael Bubble.”
Let’s face it not even Michael Buble takes Michael Buble seriously.
That’s what makes him so lovabubble.
Your student has a great future. He’s published already! Brilliant!
I worry about the future of publishing!
I thought it was funny – especially the mortician!
But then, I’m not too sane, especially on pain medication 😉
PS – what anti-depressant are you on? I’m on two of them and they don’t make me feel ‘happy’.
Currently, I am taking Effexor. It seems to work when everything is going perfectly right in my life. That’s actually an improvement 😉
These are all hilarious. People are weird.
Thank goodness people are weird!
sometimes. Other times it’s just annoying. 🙂
Your blog is snowing. Why is your blog snowing?
I’ve come across instructions like that before on anything cheap and imported. My theory is a tech manual in Korean/Vietnamese/Indonesian/Mandarin translated to English using Google.
The snow is so cool, I love it. Pity it doesn’t snow down here in Sydney
The snow is a feature that WordPress turns on every December. I always forget that I didn’t turn it off, and it surprises me as much as everyone else when it starts flurrying!
I love the zombie apocalypse advice! With an ex who was a bit zombie obsessed I know more about this uprising than any normal person should!
Now I know who to turn to when that particular crisis occurs! How much do you know about plagues and nuclear destruction?
I’m not really a plagues or nuclear destruction kinda girl, (I feel like a failure now!) I watched a programme as a kid on the black death – school forced it on me multiple times – I had nightmares for months about it so I have avoided that part of history. As for nuclear destruction, at least it would sort out the plague and the zombies! ;0)
Oh, that tweet! Well, it’s a thought. Nothing I would have thought of. Funny stuff.
I just love the mental image of a bunch of zombies tripping over their own feet!
The mortician tweet is hilarious! Thanks for that!
I must admit that I was initially jealous. How do people think of such clever things?
You are like original origami.
I will take that as a compliment?
You aren’t desperate- those are funny. 🙂 Lance said he wanted an ant farm for Christmas and it made me think of your post about the one for your class…
LOL. I made the executive decision to go another route this year. We are ordering temporary pets from Region 20. To date, we have had: a tarantula, a python, and a green anole. The kids are voting on what we order. I tried to get them to choose the hissing cockroach, but they went with the anole instead. I almost grabbed one from my backyard, but it didn’t come with a habitat and a spray bottle like the one from Region 20 🙂
Thanks for the smile.
I try 🙂
