The Swear Jar

This is an awesome classic came out a few years ago, but definitelyy worth mentioning again. I think every office should have a swear jar. Places would make a killing on Mondays. You could use the profits for Budwieser, Moral boosters, a new fax machine or just steal it when its full. If you have a swear jar at your house you can have parties and have everyone use the swear jar.. You can set your own price. Some circles of friends could probably pay your mortgage or kids college fund.

Adventures of Jaley Evans #3

Ohhh here goes Jaley again....

I have been working at this correspondent’s Mecca for a few months now. My credibility is growing as my expose counts rise. Journalistically I am in rapture. I am operating with a fabulous team that keep my leads juicy.

I have dug up an indication of my own and am scrambling to keep this undisclosed to the others. I lament over being deceptive but recognize that a breach in this trust would be detrimental to this flaming issue. “This is real Jaley” I prod myself in recognition. This is relevant. This is a dodgy situation and needs to be exposed. This is your big break!

I have been informed that a local Yule Log manufacturer has been fortifying its logs with Cannabis. These sweet holiday concoctions were being sold worldwide. To clarify for the layperson, Cannabis is an illegal drug known as “hemp” or “Mary-Jane”. I must jump into the call of duty and rectify this situation.

My “in” at the plant had prepared me proper work attire so that I will go undetected in my journey for evidence of this act. He laughed when he saw me in the paper jump suit and showed me how to write my name with Cheetos dust from his fingers on the front placket of my disguise.

“You will blend in well Jaley,” he said with another rumbled chuckle and a well-choreographed fall sequence.

This was a happy plant. Pink Floyd played in the background to motivate productivity and stamina.

The manager called together a group of employees. I was in deep. No turning back now. I quaked like a farmer in the Yucatan with a successful harvest. We all were served Yule Log cuttings. I ate 3 ravenously. Each tasted better than the last and made me feel more festive. There were many miss-steps, harmonious laughter fits and catchy songs about memory foam. This was an unusual way to handle a business meeting.

Chips were spread out like peanut butter on celery. There were lookouts at the door and some paper wearing figures were pacing as if nervously anticipating interruption. I went in for the kill.

“Excuse me sir” I said stammering uncharacteristically. “My name is Jaley Evans and I hear that Cannabis is being placed in these Yule Logs. What do you have to say about this?”

I awaited his refusal. I braced anxiously for his shock and denial of my absurd statement.

“Well how in the hell else would we sell this crap?” He stated strongly, eyes glazing over with humor.

He broke out in the familiar laughter of this plant assuring me that this was all an insidious inflammation of information. I had been led astray. My lead was now maliciously aimed and assumed false. This was a dead end to my break out story.

I stayed to eat more Yule Log chunks and sing about the hippopotamus of Africa that day. But I swear there were people watching us somewhere. As a seasoned reporter, I could not shake that feeling. I forced myself to laugh it off to enjoy more Yule Log, sour cream and onion chips and Pink Floyd.

I will possibly return to investigate when production of the Happy Easter Log begins in early spring.

Monkey Pickles Shoppers

I often think of things to do when out and about that would be fun to do this just adds to the list. We might even com out with soemthing like Monkey Pickles Missions that would be similiar to these to lighten the world up. Everything that is purpose driven, being prodcutive, managing time, failing forward, and succeeeding whatever happen to a firm handshake and just being a goofball enjoying some good simple humor with someone. GOOFBALLS United against daily purpose


Dear Mrs. Samuel,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behaviour and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Samuel, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.
2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in House wares to go off at 5-minute intervals.
3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.
4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in House wares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.
5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.
6. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.
7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.
8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called.
9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.
12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.
13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'
14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed 'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'

And last, but certainly not least:
15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.

Video of the week !!

Although we all love getting presents at Christmas time feeling just overwhelmed that someone thought enough of us to wrap something up tie a ribbon around it. Don't be fooled there are such things as bad gifts. I would rate fancy socks, handmade sweaters, and money clips pretty high. What are some of your worst Christmas Gifts?

Company Holiday Party

This is a wonderful piece of Cyber forward Holiday cheer !! Please feel fre to copy and past and send around... It's funny how office politics today are so funny...

Subject: Plans for our Holiday party

FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director

TO: All Employees

DATE: October 1, 2009

RE: Gala Christmas Party

I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party
will take place on December 23rd, starting at noon in the private
function room at the Grill House. There will be a cash bar and plenty of drinks!
We'll have a small band playing traditional carols... feel free to sing
along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus!
A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 PM. Exchanges of gifts among
employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make
the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets. This gathering is only for
employees!

Our CEO will make a special announcement at that time!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Patty

RE: Gala Holiday Party

In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our
Jewish employees. We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday,
which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year.
However, from now on, we're calling it our "Holiday Party." The same
policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians and to those
still celebrating Reconciliation Day. There will be no Christmas tree
and no Christmas carols will be sung. We will have other types of music for
your enjoyment.

Happy now?

Happy Holidays to you and your family,

Patty

RE: Holiday Party


Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics
Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, you didn't sign your name.
I'm happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that
reads, "AA Only", you wouldn't be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed
to handle this?

Somebody?

And sorry, but forget about the gift exchange, no gifts are
allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money and
the executives believe $10.00 is a little chintzy.

REMEMBER: NO GIFTS EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

RE: Generic Holiday Party

What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December
20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and
drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party! Seriously, we can
appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our
Muslim employees' beliefs. Perhaps the Grill House can hold off on
serving your meal until the end of the party or else package everything for you
to take it home in little foil doggy baggy. Will that work?

Meanwhile, I've arranged for members of Weight Watchers to
sit farthest from the dessert buffet, and pregnant women will get the
table closest to the restrooms.

Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not
have to sit with Gay men, each group will have their own table.

Yes, there will be flower arrangement for the Gay men's table.

To the person asking permission to cross dress, the Grill
House asks that no cross-dressing be allowed, apparently because of
concerns about confusion in the restrooms. Sorry.

We will have booster seats for short people.

Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet.

I am sorry to report that we cannot control the amount of
salt used in the food . The Grill House suggests that people with high
blood pressure taste a bite first.

There will be fresh "low sugar" fruits as dessert for
diabetics, but the restaurant cannot supply "no sugar" desserts. Sorry!


Did I miss anything?!?!?

RE: The F*%^ing Holiday Party

I've had it with you vegetarian pricks!!! We're going to
keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can
sit quietly at the table furthest from the "grill of death," as you so
quaintly put it, and you'll get your frigging salad bar, including organic
tomatoes. But you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when
you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing them scream right NOW!

The rest of you frigging wierdos can kiss my ass. I hope you
all have a rotten holiday!

Drive drunk and die,

The Bitch from Hell!!!

In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our
Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full
pay.

Happy Holidays!

Video of the Week (Mascots)

Why are Mascots always funny when they are messing with people or trying to dunk a ball ?? There is nothing better than a day with a Mascot. My guilty pleasure dream job would be a Mascot. I would totally love to be in a big goofy suit and mess with people or try to pull off stupid stunts. It's always fun when they obviously have ttheir stunts go not as planned. If you were a Mascot what type would you wnat to be? What would be your gags to play on people?

Adventures of Jaley Evans #2

So it continues......

I was scrupulously working on an exclusive story. It was about the Bull Ant population and a cutting edge mating experiment to replenish their numbers. My editor, Mr. Renal, came over and leaned on the edge of my folding table sending all of my things to the kitchen floor. I don’t have an office yet. I am working on a folding table in the hub of the building. Mr. Renal confides that I am doing very well and should be moved to the hallway soon. For now he wants me to stay next to the coffee pot. It has a faulty wiring problem and needs to stay full or there is possibility of a blaze. With my attention to detail, I am the one for the job. I know he would have helped me pick up my things if it wasn’t for an injury to his back received in the war protecting my freedom.


“Jaley, I have the perfect investigative project for you” he said, supportively kicking items my way. “You are the only one here I trust can handle it and I need you.” I could see the intensity in his eyes and basked in his conviction.


“Local drycleaners are overcharging a select group of professional clients to bolster declining business. I need you to infiltrate the inner circle and find out who they are targeting.”


I couldn’t believe that I was breaking into mainstream journalism this quickly and remained intently focused on him. I quaked as he further outlined my opportunity.


“The staff and I will support your efforts by bringing in clothing. You can drop it off and pick it up while you do your research.”


I tried to stay unruffled as I was writing each detail but my hands continued to quaver.


He straightened his silk tie urbanely, gave me a knowing glance and turned to amble away.


“Oh Jaley,” he turned back to dictate strongly “There is also a buzz that the Starbucks on 5th and Vine may be working in conjunction with the DC owners.”


“DC owners?” I asked, awed at his journalistic flair.


“Dry clean owners.” He retorted, brow furrowed “you should stop there before returning to the office.”


His eyes grew bright. I could tell he felt assured I would break this story. I wanted to show that I was fully committed so I countered him “I could purchase menu items for the office so no one would suspect me”.


As he sauntered away he mumbled, “Jaley, you ARE going places. Really going places.” I heard him laughing confidently.


I felt such a strong sense of passion burning inside me. This was the reason I had delved into journalism in the first place. I had studied so many years for these opportunities.


Mr. Renal has since even given me a carpool narrative to write. I pick his children up as to not expose myself to the others. He is a selfless man in giving me the tools I need to succeed. He and the team have contributed greatly to my research efforts. I am on my way to great journalistic achievement.

Big Wheels

These wonderful childhood toys got most kids moving along faster than walking for the first time. Very colorful and first time most of us tried to customize or trick out tool of mobility. Placing little streamers all over the place finding something to splash some color on etc. I remember how fun it was to get a bunch of fellow buddies together for a parking lot ride, or playing big wheel smash up slamming into each other. now they have slightly larger ones that adults use to have fun with. If you lose your inner kid then life becomes slower and boring. I give my hats off to Big Kid Big Wheel riders. You weren't a serious big wheel rider until your front tire was all split up. Here is some fun history on these mobile fascinations.

History of...

A Big Wheel is a type of tricycle, usually made of plastic, with an over sized front wheel, that rides very low to the ground. Introduced by Louis Marx and Company in 1969, the Big Wheel was a very popular toy in the 1970s in the United States, partly because of its low cost and partly because consumer groups said it was a safer alternative to the traditional tricycle or bicycle.

The design was quickly imitated, under a variety of brand names. Although Big Wheel was a registered trademark, it was frequently used as a generic name for any toy whose design resembled that of Marx. Marx sold the Big Wheel brand name and molds in the early 1970s to Empire Plastics, makers of the Power Cycle brand, which was Marx's biggest competitor.

By the late 1990s, few manufacturers were making these toys, and Empire filed for bankruptcy in 2001. The Big Wheel brand was reintroduced under new ownership in 2003.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Wheel

So I must say let your fascination with these things a start all over again.
Here is a lovely video original 1970's commercial. My only funny little notice is what is up with the cat ? how does that relate to having fun with Big Wheels?

Adventures of Jaley Evans

Short note Monkey Pickles would like to take the time to thank the writer @ The Invisible Seductress for wnating to respond to the call of "Monkey Pickles Searching" a new character adventure has been created.

So it begins......

I was traveling by supply truck to a very secluded location. With every bump the truck’s cavity shook ominously. The terrain was very rocky and we were told we were on a perilous back road. Not to worry, our heavily armed confidant divulged, it is heavily patrolled and swept for land mines or ambush.
I had been blindfolded hours ago as to further protect the destination. It was only myself and one other journalist being given this elite access. I didn’t see him but I recognized his voice and the smell of fruit jam. It was Willard Scott, I was in the company of a virtuoso of news reporting. The mood was tense and I stayed alert to every inexplicable noise and motion. Willard, ever the professional, was calmly chatting it up with the guard while I nervously practiced my interview in my head. With every jar he selflessly protected my heaving chest with a nice firm squeeze. He even grasped my thigh when he thought I was slipping off the thin metal bench seat. We finally arrived at location and were lead into an empty metal corridor before being unmasked. Long and wide, it was devoid of character and sound bounced off every wall like a ricocheting bullet. The air was musty and a rancid oil smell lingered thickly. It was an aroma that I had dreamt about my whole fledgling career. I drank it in, like a Russian man gulping Vodka. Willard just smiled at my wonder and touched my waist caringly making sure I was stable for the walk. Thousands of bellowing footsteps later we arrived at the main door, which opened with a moan. The air wafting out of the room overtook me with emotion. The sounds of crumpling and reverberating voices were deafening. Then something utterly amazing happened! A worker screamed uncontrollably and all sound ceased in reverence. Her words were foreign but the tone of excitement palpable. I stood in the underground CPCIRL. The surreptitious Celebrity Potato Chip Image Recognition Lab. The underground location where the hallowed “Potato Chip President” display is being held. I stood in awe in the very facility Angelina, Brad and all of their spud’s faces are represented regally in potato chip form. Everyday, 350 expert Potato Chip Recognition Technicians peruse 300,000 bags of plain potato chips. I was there for the astonishing inauguration of a new celebrity chip. Willard embraced me and tenderly kissed my cheek close to my agape mouth. After intense image verification, the chip was deemed an authentic replica and the crowd erupted in celebration. Today the first ever potato chip image of Lady GaGa was found and in chip form, there was no bump.

Beach Balls

Is it possible to be bored in the presence of one? More than likely not here are a few examples you can maybe relate with. When you walk by a huge basket of them in a department store ! When a fellow sibling makes you angry you can wind up as hard as possible and all your might and let them have it no bodily harm. I'm sure you've had the chance to be showered in them at a sporting event or concert. Magnifico. My personal favorite is the Tie Dyed blue ones doesn't matter on the size either I feel like a little kid when eating bacon in the presence of one. Here is an interesting fact for ya: The beach ball's invention is usually credited to Jonathon DeLonge in 1938. (wikipedia rocks) Who knew they have been around that long. Also what a thing to invent huh just sitting around one day. Then say I wish I could make a lighter ball to have joyness with ?? Those little or large inflatable balls are sure to kick any party into high gear when people have their hands on them they can't control bouncing, throwing, or using as a spur of the moment prop. So the next time you have the pleasure of enjoying some time with one make it something to remember.

Nothing

So today I will write about absolutely nothing at all !! How fun is this just not worried about anything specific. I have yet to read any blog or article where they have chosen to write about nothing. Lets see. ummmmm nope nothing comes to mind. Did you know that nothing is a seven letter word and has it's origin in Old English: nānthing, nathing then was converted to Middle English around the 1600's. Converting nothing must have been hard work for the blacksmiths and masonry's of that time our current scientific community are still trying to figure it out. When was the last time you actually thought of nothing at all? Even when your sleeping its hard to think about nothing. Imagine all the work our minds have to go through to just think about nothing at all for alot of us that alone is hard to comprehend. Here are some common Synonyms for nothing: nonexistence, nobody or nihility. It was hard enough to type the word Synonym let alone find some actual meaning stuff for it. What the heck is that word "nihility" its Greek to me but typed in English. Its amazing when you type the word "nothing" into google talk about a good for nothing waste of time but hey it was my time not yours try for yourself if you like the Internet is free to do that kinda stuff. Well I just tried that "nihility" and pretty boring search results besides their was a cool band that I came across with that name wow those guys were creative to come up with that. Well I'm done thinking about nothing.

SMILE

So I was thinking about how important it is to SMILE. How much more fun is life when people are smiling ?? Smiling more often will definitely bring more happiness and contentment. I mean really ?!?! Who likes to show up in a group of people and see a bunch of people with blank stares, distracted looks, and people that can look each other in the eye? Notice how much more fun it is when you show up to the same group people and at least half of the group is smiling !!! It's really hard not to at least start to feel cheerful while smiling or being around a group that is. It's probably the oldest attitude adjustment, sales technique, people skill, and friendly thing you can do. Think about it when was the last time you were walking by someone and they gave you some eye contact and smile? Did you not at least for 3-5 seconds feel a little better about your day. I know from personal experience as others do that sometimes a passing smile causes ripple effects in your whole day. The easiest way to get started is when you are standing in front of your bathroom mirror in the morning crack a smile at yourself have a laugh. At least give yourself the chance to start on the right foot. Heck if that doesn't happen do you really even have a chance sure (lottery winnings), but couldn't your overall mood, personality, and relationships over along period of time be totally affected by it you better believe it! I'm sure you've heard this just as I have "Its the cheapest thing you can do for yourself and others". BEST BELIEVE don't ever be afraid to burst out in random thought or pass a kind word you might just draw a smile out from someone. My philosophy has always been your either laughing with me or at me either way I win because you smiled and enjoyed yourself for brief moment in time. Think about this when was the last time you were sincerely smiling and laughing still thinking about your life challenges. Everyone has challenges so how about lets work at helping everyone think clearly and go through them with a smile. Life will always have a way of bringing up challenges that are not smile worthy, but one of the easiest ways to get through situations is just smile. For all you people who are in relationships or looking for a relationship. SMILE smiling has a wonderful way of just naturally attracing qualities you want out of someone. If your in constant frowned, upset, not interested mentally mode then it's not a surprise you typically have more intangible negative things that happen. No one is perfect and without reading a ton of books changing all your association moving jobs etc... The simplest way to start moving forward is SMILE. Go ahead start tomorrow with the person in the mirror with your hair all out of place, toothpaste dripping off your chin, eyes half closed, and crack a smile. Then pass 2-3 a day towards others and right before you go to bed. Look up at the ceiling or face down in your pillow and end the day with a smile.. (go ahead no one is even looking then) and don't worry it will all start to work out. JUST START TO SMILE give a go at it for a few months..

Monkey Facts...

 There are 264 known extant species of monkey.

 Due to its size (up to 1 m/3 ft) the Mandrill is often thought to be an ape, but it is actually an Old World monkey.

 Monkeys range in size from the Pygmy Marmoset, at 140 to 160 millimetres (5-6 in) long (plus tail) and 120 to 140 grams (4-5 oz) in weight, to the male Mandrill, almost 1 metre (3.3 ft) long and weighing 35 kilograms (77 lb).

 According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word "monkey" may originate in a German version of the Reynard the Fox fable, published circa 1580. In this version of the fable, a character named Moneke is the son of Martin the Ape. The word Moneke may have been derived from the Italian monna, which means "a female ape". The name Moneke likely persisted over time due to the popularity of Reynard the Fox.

 A group of monkeys may be referred to as a mission or a tribe.

What is Monkey Pickles?

Monkey Pickles: funny random thoughts or actions to share. or some people would call them bananas.

If you enjoy being a goofball like we do and not take things to serious than you've come to right place. We share random funny thoughts, jokes, and moments. Nothing is better in life than a good laugh with good people. How many times have you been just doing something through the day and something funny just pops in your head? exactly that Monkey Pickles... Enjoy each others humor and wit.... spread smiles, and laughter through a common bond of being goofballs !!!

We don't get caught up in all the hype of controversial topics like politics, religion, or race. If you would like to discuss those bad enough about who, what, when, and where then there are several other places to go..

Monkey Pickles started from constanlty saying it the end of 08'. In Jan 09' started thinking about a fun hobby to start learning would be web design stuff so at that moment the light bulb went off and they were combined, and the rest has been a blast. Monkey Pickles has brought people together, turned several frowns upside down and generally been a positve fun community. So there you have it !!!
