Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5

After doing four posts with pictures that show why women live longer than men, I should have known that it would be only a matter of time until more pictures surfaced. And surface they did! I got an e-mail last week with many pictures that weren't part of the ones I had published. In fact, there are enough for two posts! Today's post is the first of the two. These pictures all have something to do with men and their lack of fear (read: sense?) about height and safety.

Not all heights are a problem, and yet falling is still not a good idea, as in this one....

The Blind Cowboy and the Number 5

It has been a long, long time since I have published a blonde joke, but this one came my way recently and I just have to share it! I would change "blonde" to "airhead" in the joke since not all blondes are airheads and not all airheads are blonde, but it just wouldn't work so well in this particular joke. You'll see why as you read it.

So without further ado, I will proceed to the joke.


An old, blind cowboy wanders into a smoothie bar one day, mistakenly thinking he has gone into another kind of bar. He doesn't know it, but he's a little out of place as the only male in the whole bar. He finds his way to a stool at the counter. Before trying to order something, he yells to the smoothie barista, "Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?"

Everyone in the place immediately goes totally silent.

In a very deep, husky voice, the woman on the stool to his left says, "Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you're blind and all, that you should know five things:"

1. The barista is a blonde girl who keeps a baseball bat behind the bar.

2. The manager over there is a blonde woman who used to be a roller derby queen.

3. I'm a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate.

4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weight lifter.

5. The lady to your right is a blonde professional wrestler.

"Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. You still wanna tell that blonde joke?"

The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters, "No, ... not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."


Next week's post will be another set of pictures that help demonstrate why women live longer than men.

More Mug Shots

In my blog post before last, I posted pictures of coffee mugs and asked my readers to share any that they personally like. Several people took me up on it in the comments to that post and by sending me some pictures. So I am posting today what they've sent.

Here's one about the downside of dating.

Here's one with a Herbert Hoover quotation on it.

Here are several fun ones about coffee itself.

Interesting Signs

After going through a bit of a "blogging funk," I am going to post some of the signs that have accumulated in my folder. I was so busy before Thanksgiving (before I stopped working at Starbucks), that my enthusiasm for my blog waned greatly. Then with the holidays and illness, it has taken me this long to "resurface." We'll see if this new beginning gets me going again.

Without further ado, I will now post this strange mixture of signs that have come my way.

If I am reading this first sign correctly, hardly anyone would qualify to use this toilet.

Disabled What?!

I would think that any of this company's personnel would be "organic," that is, unless they are robots or bionic or something similar.

Organic People Only

You've got to love unfortunate misspellings, as in this next sign.

Mug Shots

Being a coffee hound, I am also a fan of coffee mugs. Coffee mugs can deliver most of the messages that can be found on t-shirts, and often do. But sometimes even better. Today's post is some mugs I've seen lately that I think are pretty cool or funny.

I shared a picture a while back that was based on the following picture I stumbled upon online, who knows where. I would love to have this mug!

Ah Coffee!

Friends went to France this summer and brought me back a mug that I love using at school.
