Funniest Things Said and Heard This Weekend...

Said by me, at the overnight camp with my Beaver group, to the parents that were accompanying the children:

(Loudly) "PARENTS, CAN YOU PLEASE GRAB YOUR BEAVERS AND COME OVER HERE??"

Usually when I make Beaver jokes, I do it intentionally. Not this time though. One other leader got a good chuckle, which made me realize what I said. Later on, one of the moms admitted that she fought hard to resist the urge to comment at the time as well.

Heard by me, when I was sitting on the couch last night, typing my three children's summer baseball schedules into Outlook on my wife's laptop:

(It was from the tv I heard this, an advertisement for some kind of Poker show, one of the tons of those type shows these days. Had I been watching, I'm sure I would have seen the playing cards and the players, or the dealers, or something else to put me in the proper frame of mind. However, concentrating on the computer as I was, I simply heard...)

"POKER LIKE A CHAMPION!!"

Go ahead. Say it out loud, with a booming triumphant tone of voice. You'll hear what I heard. It definitely made me go, "Huh?!?" But no, it wasn't a Viagra advertisement. Just dumb old poker.

They say things come in threes. But I'm still waiting for the third. I'll let you know when it comes up.

Don't tell the Love Monkey that poker is silly. And please, do you know how many poker jokes are heard around my house. If it's not poker, it's Dungeons & Dorks. Lord, help me. Funny, bout the beavers, though.
