Friday Funnies

Bring on the funnies! Bring on the funnies! Say it with me. Bring on the funnies! Are you ready? I know I am.
Did you know that Friday Funnies is coming up on it's one year anniversary. It started out slow but has slowly gained ground. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
With that said, go post your funny and come back and link it up to share!

There really isn't a day that goes by that I don't need want chocolate.
And not like I need them but here are some VERY good reasons to eat chocolate every day!

1. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine a chemical that the brain releases when we fall in love. (Uh, huh. I know that's right!)

Serotonin is released when chocolate is eaten, and communicates a feeling of calm while stabilizing your moods. (Our husbands should BRING us chocolate!)

3. Endorphins, also released when chocolate is eaten, send high levels of energy to the brain and give you a sense of euphoria. (Nothing like feeling good and having the energy to do housework right? Right?)

4. Chocolate contains anandamide, which helps open the synapses in the brain that allow feelings of happiness to transmit easily. Anandamide is the same brain receptor that responds to THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. However, it would take 25 pounds of chocolate in one sitting to feel the same high because anandamide is broken down quickly and easily. It is suspected that it does preserve a feeling of well-being. (25lbs. uh? Well, if I must, to achieve desired results then I gotta do what I gotta do!)

But wait! There's more!
I stumbled across this website called Chocolate Funny Farm Store and it sells chocolate themed t-shirts. They are too funny. I want the one that says,
" Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake. Please have chocolate at the Gate!" LOL

Last but not least, I'll leave you with this picture. It was funny to me because I have been known to stash chocolate in my desk. I just pray to God that I don't look like this when I go looking for it!
I wonder how many of my posts have contained the word chocolate? LOL

Okay I'm done!
Happy Friday my sweet friends!


  1. ooooo these are great things to know about chocolate...makes our addiction seem not soo bad huh??? LOL

    can't wait to share these with my DH....he is actually worse than I am about chocolate :)

    Happy Friday!

  2. Those are some good reasons to go have me some chocolate! Who would have thought? We should have known there were so many benefits to chocolate though because it makes us so happy to eat it. :)

  3. Kim, I love your sense of humor. I think I may need to join in one Friday. I do Fitness Friday posts each week but I guess I could do a second one too. After all, I wrote about attitude today on Heart Choices. I guess one small piece of chocolate would be fine; just don't eat tons of it. My mom used to buy one large chocolate bar each week and keep it in the fridge. Each day she broke off one small piece and ate it. I'm amazed as kids that we knew to never touch mom's chocolate. It always lasted a week and was a wonderful example of self-control.

  4. How funny my friend! I love your funnies and I love chocolate! Those t-shirts sound great and that cartoon makes me laugh!

    Chocolate is so healthy that I really should have some for breakfast! :)

    Now, you really must link this up to my Chocolate Friday so people can get more chocolate and funnies at the same time!

    Big phenylethylamine-Serotonin-Endorphins-anandamide-filled hugs to you! :)

    Have a super Friday my friend!!

  5. 25 pounds, eh? Lol! Surely it couldn't add that many pounds to our hips, could it??

    My husband DOES bring me chocolate. Often. I wonder what that says about me??

  15. Kim,

    Oh I am so guilty of that. I have chocolate stashed everywhere and there must be chocolate in our house at all times. Sanity relies on that one simply fact.
