Senior Moment – An Ancient Historical Event

Instead of getting all pontificatious (I know that’s not a word, but it sounds good) like usual here on Free Spirit Saturday, I thought I’d provide a yuk sent to me by an old friend. Enjoy, and see you tomorrow for a fun Dear Old Silly counseling session.

Ever wonder what really caused the dinosaurs to become extinct?

It was because of the first ever “senior moment” …

    Ha! Now I know the truth! LOL, good one. 😉

    Hey – where is THAT in the Bible? 😉 LOL, but makes sense to me!

  3. Stanley Berber / Mar 6 2010 7:14 am

    LOL, talk about missing the boat, huh?

    He, he, he. That’s fu….nny, Old Silly.

    I like the sound of the word “pontificatious.” If we, seniors (heck, you don’t even have to be a senior), get together as one and use the word in our daily vernaculars, I wouldn’t be surprised that in a few years, the scholars at Yale (or is it Cambridge?) would pontificate its usefulness as a true word.

    Happy Saturday!

      Ya know what, Tasha, I think you’re on to something pontificatious there. 😉

    Oh, this made me laugh. I say, “Was that today?” so many times during the week! I never would have made it on the ark.

    Ah, so that’s what hapened. Why didn’t they take the mosquito with them?

    So funny Marvin, are you sure it wasn’t The Titanic they miseed.?
    Why can’t pontificatious be a word it looks good on paper.

    Enjoy your week-end.

      I’m with you and Tasha, Yvonne – Let’s hereby proclaim that “pontificatious” is officially a word. 😉

    Now we know the truth!

  9. Leeuna / Mar 6 2010 9:50 am

    Hahah. I can certainly relate to that.

    I am so glad to finally know that answer!!! Been wondering what REALLY happened. hehehehe

  11. L. Diane Wolfe / Mar 6 2010 10:31 am

    I always said that was the reason the dinosaurs went extinct – they missed the boat!

  12. Connie Arnold / Mar 6 2010 10:48 am

    Thanks for the good laugh today, Marvin! Guess those senior moments have been happening for eons!

  13. quirkyloon / Mar 6 2010 11:15 am

    Barum bump!

    It’s going around the Net. It’s cute. It gets a laugh every time.

    I missed the boat, Marvin. Nice to see your terrific sense of humor has not gone overboard. Well actually, it’s always over board, but then that’s why I keep coming back for more. Missed y’all.
