STAY ALERT! They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…….

Note from Lois…..I am having trouble with the “new and improved” WordPress blog template. I can’t size photos and type. I am even having trouble with paragraph spacing. I am waiting for WordPress support to get back to me.

Meanwhile, here are some funnies from my friend Michael Sommer.



My husband and I went through the McDonald’s driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.
She said, ‘you gave me too much money.’
I said, ‘Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.’
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said ‘We’re sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.’
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at MacD’s.


We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a ‘large’ enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

He shook his head and said, ‘You need a 1/4 horsepower.’
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, ‘NOOO, it’s not. Four is larger than two.’

We haven’t used that repairman since…


I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.The reason: ‘Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don’t think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.’


My daughter went to a Mexican fast food and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for ‘minimal lettuce.’
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.


I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
‘Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?’
To which I replied, ‘If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?’
He smiled knowingly and nodded, ‘That’s why we ask.’


The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it’s safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an ‘intellectually challenged’ co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, ‘what on earth are blind people doing driving?!’
She is a government employee…..


When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a
service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
‘Hey,’ I announced to the technician, ‘its open!’
His reply, ‘I know. I already did that side.’

STAY ALERT! They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…….

Your Introduction To TikTok

TikTok is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012. It is used to create short music, lip/sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of three to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of three to 60 seconds.

Click on the above video to see what type of content TikTok is known for. After viewing, you still may not understand why it’s so popular. The answer is easy, your age. Yet, I know many well-educated adults who are addicted to TikTok.

TikTok has 800 million active users worldwide. The TikTok app has been downloaded over 2 billion times on the App Store and Google Play.

Thank you Dr. Steve Mandy for these posters.

Don’t Call A Rabbi Or A Priest– NYC Is Not Dying

TV personality Steve Greenberg and Editorial Consultant Lois Whitman-Hess  set the record straight on “Lying on the Beach On Camera.” NYC is the heart of the universe and it will only get better as time marches on. Those who ran away will have huge regrets. They are probably bored out of their minds. New York at its worse is better than listening to the endless hum of crickets.  Click above.
