Sunday Scribblings "Absurd"

Sunday Scribblings prompt this week is the word "Absurd". Yes I can do that.
What is Absurd.
Mad, crazy, silly, ridiculous, stupid, nuts, idiocy
The whole bloody world is
That is everyone,
Except for me.
I learned that you are not crazy if you think you are
and that you are if you think you are normal, and not crazy.
So what am I?
He he.

Absurd is the ridiculous comedy inside us all,
in our society
in our culture or someone else's around the world.
Our views on another religion that we don't understand.

Absurd is that stupid idiot box in the lounge room
and watching what goes on in it
for the sake of its lame entertainment.
Then telling the other people in the room with you to shut up while you watch
so you can hear it as well.

Maybe absurd is sitting here in front of a puter screen
while your beloved sits by themselves in another room.

Absurd is putting too much of your self into your job,
to the detriment of you family life.
Just to get the praise you need from your colleagues
and treating that job as your life instead of
the means to an end that it ought to be.
As a female I never could understand this,
I know males think differently.

Absurd is making money to the detriment of the environment
and fighting to keep doing it just for the sake of money.

Absurd is....political correctness gone overboard.

Absurd is reading silly joke books that have things in them like this;

An elderly couple was enjoying an anniversary dinner at a small hotel, lounge.The husband leans over and asks the wife , "Do you remember the first time we had sex together over 50 years ago?" we went behind this hotel where you leaned against the fence and I made love to you".
"Oh yes, she said, I remember it well".
"O.K." He says "How about taking a stroll around there and we can do it again for old times sake?"
"Ohhh Henry, she says, you old devil, that sounds like a great idea!".
The local policeman is sitting nearby listening to all this, having a chuckle to himself and thinks.
"I've got to see this, I had better keep an eye on them to see that there is no trouble."
He follows them around the back. They walk haltingly along, leaning on each other for support and aided by their walking sticks. Finally they get to the back of the hotel and make their way to the fence. They start going at it. She turns around and as she takes hold of the fence the old man moves in. Suddenly they erupt into the, most furious sex the policeman has ever seen. Just like a couple of 18 year olds.
This goes on for about 40 minutes, She is yelling " Ohhh God!" and he is hanging on for dear life.
Finally they both collapse onto the ground where they stay recovering for half an hour. The policeman still watching thinks, I've got to ask them what their secret is, that was amazing!
As the couple passes by he says to them, "That was something else! You must have been having sex for 40 minutes. How do you manage it? You must have had a fantastic life together. Is there some sort of secret?.
The old man says "50 years ago that wasn't an electric fence."

Yes I do have a few of these books.
Or just plain naughty?
He he.

Dear Linda ~~ I liked your absurd post and also the joke.Glad you liked that Vincent Van Gogh list.
Has it been very cold in Canberra?
It has been a very cold week here
but we are heading for a couple of 16 C days, so that's better than 9 C and 11C being the top temp
Take care my friend, Love, Merle.

Haha, yes, I sure did get a kick of the idiot box in the lounge room. Detestable things, TVs. Ooh, but sitting at the laptop come hell or high water or loved ones…that’s real close to home…ooh, and being married to the job…OK, well Linda May, it’s gettin’ mighty hot in here…gotta go…
Kidding. Enjoyed this smorgasbord of absurdities and the joke :-D

Believe it or not Lin....most men I know would rather "throw in the towel" than justify their lives by their jobs...they just play the old game because it keeps them employed.
