SUNDAY FUNNIES: PIPER EXPLAINS IT ALL (misc. jokes)

 Hello Everybody! Piper D. Katt here!
Just checking out the Easter preparations for next Sunday while trying to figure out what is going on with the weather!
The calendar said Spring was supposed to arrive on March 19th.
Yet here we are on the 24th and it's still Winter outside!
Or at least, the temperatures and wind are still wintry.
It's enough to drive a cat crazy if I had to use an outdoor litterbox, which thankfully I don't.
In any event, enough of my caterwauling.
It's joke time!

Being a cat, I have questions that cannot be answered, than answers that can’t be questioned. Like,
When's dinner?
And why isn't it NOW!

My friend Jack claims he can communicate with vegetables. That’s right. Jack and the beans talk.

Why doesn't coward mean to move in the direction of the cow?๐Ÿ„

๐ŸชจThis rock started out as a shy pebble.
Is it Spring yet?

Now it is a little boulder.
Someday it hopes to be a rolling stone.
Is the band hiring?

When at the wharf, some see two piers.
I see a paradox.
Then again, I have no peers. ๐Ÿ˜ผ

⛟They are coming out with a movie about big rig trucks.
I’ve already seen the trailer.
If handled right, it might be more than a semi success.

If people are serious about saving the planet, they should stop printing calendars.
They're part of the reason why your days are numbered.

You can’t always depend on experts for information.
Ask a turkey๐Ÿฆƒ on the best stuffing for a turkey and it will say to use seeds and worms.๐Ÿชฑ๐Ÿชฑ

Do Astronomers who come in second get a constellation prize?

If anyone ever tells you your dreams are silly, just remember things like the Slinky and the Pool Noodle exist today because of someone's dreams.

And on that note♫, have a great week everybody!
Take care.
STAY SAFE!๐Ÿ˜ท
And join us next weekend when our old friend EB, The Easter Bunny๐Ÿฐ hops by with more Sunday Funnies!—PDK.

*Former President Trump declared a “national emergency” to build his border wall, separating families upon apprehension. President Joseph Biden nullified the emergency, but other matters pertaining to these issues still have to be dealt with.
NOTE: While we are doing our best to provide coverage, the above is a serious ongoing issue. Especially since no one has yet to fully discuss the health and safety of all the detainees as well as the various costs under Donald Trump of separating families and who is truly responsible for the deaths of FIVE detainees (known to date), let alone if anyone might actually be making a profit from this situation.
