Man, this Handeyism sure rings true --at least in reference to my husband, that is. (Alas, Billy is a comedian in his own eyes, I'm afeared...) To My Spouse: (coining a phrase often spoken by Sister Irena, a then already 150-year old relic of a nun who walked with a severe limp, wore a perpetual prune for a face, and was my favorite [fifth grade] teacher): "You're as funny as a crutch."

Hey, guess what? I posted My Jack Handey Friday a smitch ahead of time! Come for a read? Thanks!

Glad you liked it. I think that's what makes Handeyisms so funny; at the core of their ridiculousness rings truths we can all relate with. Love the Sister Irena description, especially the "perpetual prune for a face."

Thanks for the Jack Handey Friday reminder; I checked it out and commented :)
