Last night hubby was helping Stinkerbell get ready for bed. I heard him ask her where she got the cut on her face, she replied "From the wall." Her father then asks "What wall?" Stinkerbell's response cracked me up "The wall I got it from."

It was tomato sauce.

Stinkerbell has the habit of giving technically correct but completely useless answers. Hubby says it reminds him of a Microsoft joke.

A helicopter with a pilot and a single passenger was flying around above Seattle when a malfunction disabled all of the aircraft’s navigation and communications equipment. Due to the darkness and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter’s position and course to get back to the airport.

The pilot saw a tall building with lights on and flew toward it, the pilot had the passenger draw a handwritten sign reading “WHERE AM I?” and hold it up for the building’s occupants to see.

People in the building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign, and held it in a building window. Their sign said “YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER.”

The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely.

After they were on the ground, the passenger asked the pilot how the “YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER” sign helped determine their position.

The pilot responded “I knew that had to be the Microsoft support building, they gave me a technically correct but entirely useless answer.”

Personally, it reminds me of Pooh and Rabbit:

Piglet: Pooh! Haven't you been listening to what Rabbit's been saying?
Winnie the Pooh: I listened, but then I had a small piece of fluff in my ear. Could you say it again, please, Rabbit?
Rabbit: Well, where should I start from?
Winnie the Pooh: Well, from the moment the fluff got in my ear.
Rabbit: Well, when was that?
Winnie the Pooh: I don't know. I couldn't hear properly.


  1. Very funny - lol! :oD

  2. My second laugh of the day. My first one was when my DH got up this morning and ralized that 18 holes of golf might be a bit much when you haven't played in years. Ouch! You see, I told him so. LOL

    RE: Southen gardens

    Yes, I can grow Pampas grass, and Bamboo and stuff, but you can grow asparagus, apples and rhubarb and all those lovely things. But then again, you freeze to death in the Winter and I don't even own a hat or a pair of gloves..LOL

  3. I love the honesty!

    My grandson climbed up into grandpa's chair and announced that he 'got an owie'. Grandpa asked where, and the reply was 'in the backyard'.

  4. Hilarious! My hubby will love that Microsoft joke!
