The Premiere of Friday Funny!

>> Friday, September 12, 2008

I’ve been toying with this idea for a while, and it’s time to make it happen. Most of you come here to be entertained. Some of you still might come here for triathlon / duathlon / running stories! But now that last group is in the minority... (Ha!)

So, to keep people entertained at the end of the work-week, I’m starting the “Friday Funny.” It’s just something random/funny thing that makes me giggle/chortle.

Today’s topic is Fake Motivational Posters. You’ve all seen the dumb motivational posters that are supposed to inspire us to work harder, work as a team, give it our all, etc. Shortly after, people started making DEmotivational Posters that are pretty entertaining. After that, people started making pointless and funny posters in the same format.

Here are some good ones:

This last one is just a little vulgar, but it really made me laugh...

One last thing for this Friday Funny: yesterday I picked this up at my local running store:

I’ll be wearing a pair on my nip-nips during the duathlon tomorrow (if you don’t know why I need them, read the previous post). Matt and I are reuniting "Team Happy Pants" at the Cannon Lake Duathlon. Look for a race report shortly! And watch for a new Friday Funny next week! Happy Weekend!

BTW, I might be able to site where some of the images / funnies come from, but many will probably just be random, funny things that I've found across the net. So I'm sorry, but I might not be able to tell you where all of these came from. Just enjoy and laugh!

Vulgar? Yes. But very funny. Great new feature.

BTW - Does "Team Happy Pants" mean the return of a "Bowl Full of Sunshine"?

Steve... a suggestion for your tender nips straight from the lips of my coach who does ironmans... I tape my knee when I run and I use this white medical tape as a base and then apply really sticky brown tape. The WHITE tape is what you need. You would need to shave the ahir around your tender nip...but you are not a stranger to that. Small piece of the white tape and you would be good. I have used this tape on my knee before swims and it stays on the entire triathlon (or in my recent ironman - the entire day). If you want the exact name of the tape - you know where to find my and I buy it at my physio office!! Now, I'll get back to tucking my ass in like a tshirt and would you PLUEASE - not mock my pain!!! Cheers!

Steve Stenzel 10:13 AM, September 12, 2008  

Jim - YES, hopefully it does.

And Jenna - thanks for the advice. Sorry I mocked your pain earlier... All in jest...

Jenna 10:22 AM, September 12, 2008  

I know silly...but did you know that people that mock the pain of others or thier race photos - have nipples that BLEED!!!! Baaa haaa haaa!!!! I love your blog:) Makes my work day go so much faster ...ha!!

Steve Stenzel 10:34 AM, September 12, 2008  

You got me there...

Bloody nipples don't lie.

I love your motivational posters. Especially the one with the duggars (aka--not a clown car).

Please keep it up. we all need the laugh!

I really like that lazy poster.

Good luck on your race!

Those are funny! The nip guards work but they make you look pretty funny. They tend to stick out from your shirt and well, lets put it this way they make people stare! So you may want to get one of those stop starring at my tits shirts when you wear them.

What is the song on your boombox when you are dancing in the grim reaper outfit? I've GOT TO PUT IT ON MY IPOD!

:) 12:48 PM, September 12, 2008  

Steve's favorite song - Nips Don't Lie by Shakira...

nip-nip is my new fave word!!!

chia 1:04 PM, September 12, 2008  

Wow. Someone should clean all this tea I just spit all over the monitor... that shizz was funny!

Anonymous,  1:09 PM, September 12, 2008  

hooray for nip guards!!! :D

Kelly 1:23 PM, September 12, 2008  

not a clown car. VERY funny. thanks. Good luck with team pants.

Kelly 2:03 PM, September 12, 2008  

The word "nip" creeps me out (I don't know why). Thus, after reading other people's comments and coming to the end, I am officially done and have nothing to say. Hmph.

Good luck to Team Happy Pants tomorrow, hope the nip guards prove successful. If not, I am sure we will have a nice photo essay.

Brian 2:13 PM, September 12, 2008  

Awesome. can't wait for friday's now. the hummer one and the vagina are the best.

Marcy 2:31 PM, September 12, 2008  

Dude, the vag one is my new fav!

Erin Leigh 2:50 PM, September 12, 2008  

LMAO at the "clown car" bit. That is so right on.

Jess 2:55 PM, September 12, 2008  

Those are hilarious! But "bathroom" is spelled wrong in one. Sorry, it's the English teacher in me; I must point out errors -- it's a curse.

J~Mom 3:35 PM, September 12, 2008  

Love the bathroom one!! LOL!!

Stef0115 3:58 PM, September 12, 2008  

Ha ha! The last two are the best! Along with the word "chortle." Haven' heard that one in awhile. Great new feature!

The (IRON) Clyde 4:05 PM, September 12, 2008  

You missed the best one.

Judi 4:34 PM, September 12, 2008  

I love the Friday Funnies. Very cute.

Kevin 8:23 PM, September 12, 2008  

Those are frickin hilarious

21stCenturyMom 8:25 PM, September 12, 2008  

The last poster made me laugh out loud which probably means I'm vulgar, too.

I think you are getting more famous than the J.C. Penny guy!

Thank goodness Steve you finally bought the NipGuards...hey are the happypants the same ones you wore at Steelhead spectating? Good luck to Matt and you at the Team Du this weekend!!!

triguyjt 8:21 AM, September 13, 2008  

thank god your nip-mares aill be over thanks to the nipguard..

i seem to recall a college incident that was very similar to rock bottom....many many moons ago

Marci 10:35 AM, September 13, 2008  

I guess I have a reason to look forward to Fridays now :)

Trishie 10:38 AM, September 13, 2008  

Google "demotivators" (it may actually be -- you can order prints of things like "because not everyone gets to be an astronaut" with a picture of french fries, etc. Got a couple for my dad --- brilliant!

Charlotte 1:55 PM, September 13, 2008  

You know, I've long maintained that men should swallow their pride and just wear a sports bra to take care of the ol' nips. They're reusable, better for the enviornment and come in a multitude of peppy colors & patterns! Hmmm... do I smell a marketing opportunity??

sRod 7:26 PM, September 15, 2008  

Oh my God. You could probably drive a Mac truck through that woman's uterus.

CoachLiz 9:28 PM, September 16, 2008  

The "Clown Car" poster made me cry I laughed so hard. I want to know what job that dude has to be able to clothe all those kids the same. That had to be astronomically expensive! With the money he is making his wife should be able to afford a hair cut to bring her style into this century. But then again, with all those kids she probably does not have time for a hair cut. Did you see how long her hair was??? LOL!

ShesAlwaysWrite 11:36 AM, September 22, 2008  

The 'clown car' one is priceless, even more so 'cause I've seen them on tv. Sadly, they didn't get the memo because they've had 3 more kids since that picture was taken!

Thanks for your comments! Have a great day!
