Now That’s Funny! – Issue 29

by Thomas Hoyt Again, words are funny! Let’s take a look at a word we use commonly. This word is pants.

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 28

by Thomas Hoyt Words are funny! Let’s face it, especially within the American English language, words are really funny.

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 27

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 25

by Thomas Hoyt Let’s face it, men and women are sooooooooooooooo different. We are not only different on the physical dimension; we think and communicate differently also. Men are, well…basic.

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 24

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 23

by Thomas Hoyt Some time ago, back when I was in courtship with my wife, Rebecka, I had an experience that involved a flatulence.

Well, itContinue reading “Now That’s Funny! – Issue 23”

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 22

Sometimes you must dress for the below freezing temperatures and go outside to clear the snow out of your driveway. You either do this with a snow shovel or a snow blower. I’m thankful that I do haveContinue reading “Now That’s Funny! – Issue 22”

Now That’s Funny! – Issue 21
