S is for Silly, Slaphappy Saturday!

Yow! Books were only 15 cents.
Today is S day on A to Z. It's just past the middle of the challenge, and like many of you, I'm a bit frazzled, but determined to complete the challenge. My theme is the Creative Life. What do creative heads do when they need a recharge? LAUGH! Laugh at really stupid, mindless, silly stuff. So, here's a fresh dose for everyone to laugh their way into the weekend. And there are a couple of redeeming children's books mixed in, including my sons' old favorite series, The Teacher From The Black Lagoon by Mike Thaler, and Captain Underpants by Dave Pilkey. Yee-haw!






   

What's your favorite silly book? Silly joke? Silly sign?

  1. Love the Santa Claus Cemetery! One of my favorite silly books has to be Shel Silverstein's ABZ Book (not appropriate for little ones).

  2. My favorite silly book is the MG I'm revising right now. How totally egotistical of me, eh? I went over and searched my library for the TEACHER FROM THE BLACK LAGOON but all they had was the movie. I guess I could watch it instead, eh?

  3. I'm off to buy a crotch steamer now--that sounds like a hoot!

  4. Why do the green onions look so much like Mr. Bill? Are they an ingredient in steamed crotch?

    I always liked the Hitchhikers Guide To The Universe series by Douglas Adams.

  5. The Twits! --Roald Dahl

    I love all things Dahl, but this one makes me laugh out loud every time I read it to my son.

  6. I don't remember reading much silly material as a child, but I liked to be silly. As an adolescent I enjoyed Mad and Cracked magazines as well as those silly TV shows like Laugh-In.
    Hang in there! Just a few more letters to go.

  8. Arlee, I loved Mad Mag! Melanie, good one for the Twits. How about the Stupids too? Angelina, why not put in a good word for your own book?! Janna, I personally love the Santa Cemetary. And heck ya, everyone who's anyone should get a crotch-steamer.

  12. Silly rhymes by Shel Silverstein & Allan Ahlberg make me laugh. I have Captain Underpants on my to-read because I've heard so much about this series. Oh, and the best silliness is that from Bertie Wooster, my P.G. Wodehouse hero (okay, some might call him a worm instead)!

  13. Claudine, I have to admit, I have never read PG Wodehouse... is that a literary crime? I'll have to remember the name Bertie Wooster whenever I tackle Wodehouse.

  14. I love reading to my toddler he thinks everything is so funny and he can't stop giggling. Great post!

  15. Okay, that cemetery sign is cracking me up! Maybe it's run by the homicidal Santa Claus robot from "Futurama."

  16. Santa Claus Cemetery! What a hoot! And I have to admit I love Captain Underpants...so glad I have a 9 year old boy so we can LOL with toilet humor. Fun post!

  17. I love the picture of the onion people, that one made me laugh. The Bunnicula books by James Howe are always a good way to laugh.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog over the weekend.

  18. Here's my favorite silly joke:

    What do you call an Italian man with a rubber toe?

    Roberto.

    I know, I know. It's bad.
