Friday Funnies! Are We Really That Stupid?

friday funnies


I’m ready to laugh today, so help me out and link up your funnies. Just make sure they are family friendly. You can link up a funny story, video, picture etc.


My funny today came with the purchase of this lamp.


What? You see nothing funny with this lamp?

My hubby purchased this lamp for his desk. No, that’s not the funny part.

THIS is the funny part.

These are the “instructions” for the lamp.

First let me point out that it’s in 3 languages.


Are you ready to get started? Have you found your language preference? Good. Let’s begin!

Read carefully this is important!


Got it?

Okay. Let’s look at the parts list to make sure we have everything. Take your time. You wouldn’t want to mess this up.


You okay? Are you sure? You wouldn’t want to move on without making sure you had your LAMP in front of you. You know, Part A.

Here’s where it gets complicated. Don’t rush this.


Reread if you need to. You wouldn’t want to make a mistake here. That part is crucial.

But don’t worry, you have plenty of time because apparently this can take anywhere from 2-5 minutes to accomplish.


I’m pretty sure my hubby did this in about 20 seconds.

Did we really need 2 pages to tell us to screw in a light bulb?

Which brings me to my earlier question. Are we really that stupid?

This cracked me up so I just had to share. Have you ever come across something like this?

  1. Not sure if the linky worked, so here's the link anyway :) http://bit.ly/ghUmal

    And oh my goodness, WHO WROTE those instructions for assembling the lamp!!! Good grief, what has this world come to! LOL

  2. Oh my gosh! That is too funny! What a waste of paper!

  3. Oh I laughed and laughed at this till I had tears rolling down my face...literally! Thanks for the entertainment! :)

  4. Wow! LOL! That is hilarious! It is for those that think the light bulb is already included. Does it tell you how to turn it on, too?

  5. Hey, don't they know how smart we are??? Happy Friday, dear one.

  6. Kim, that was AWESOME!!! Thanks so much for sharing! I had an ink pen in high school that had a sticker on it that said "To remove ink, keep writing" How do they come up with these things?!

  7. Seriously?
    Sad to think, though, that there really may be people out there who would need those instructions...and might have to read them more than once.
    Thanks for a good giggle this morning!
    Peace and blessings.

  8. So funny! Instructions for hair dryers and curling irons are funny too!

  9. Oh my goodness Kim! Really?? That is too funny!! And we wonder why other countries thing we're stupid..LOL

  10. But did it tell you to plug it in?!

  11. That was great!!!

  12. Goodness! Standard forms always crack me up, but this one takes it all. Too funny. ;)

  13. I'm really amazed that you were able to put it together my friend!! The instructions for my last blowdryer actually included "Do not attempt to use while sleeping." I am NOT kidding - LOLOL!!!

    Big took-you-longer-to-write-the-post-than-to-put-the-lamp-together size hugs to you!! Love ya!

  14. LOL! Too funny and what a waste of paper... Someone must have sued them at some point for something.


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
