Best scene in a movie, EVAAAHH!
I love this stuff. Show me something old/vintage/period/from another time when life was so completely different and I’m interested. Show something vintage that makes me laugh and I’m even more intrigued. I wonder what people will be saying about our current advertising in 80 years’ time?
Here’s your dose of funny today, enjoy!

Totally feeling like this leopard today:
(Trailer for Festival of Animated Film in Stuttgard in April this year.)
Sometimes, someone sends you something at exactly the right time that just has you in hysterics. I’ve had a fairly serious week and it has definitely lacked a steady flow of humour. So when a friend mailed me these, they could not have come at a better time. They’re not even the funniest I’ve seen in my life, but, timing is everything, friends.
I am a fan of random acts of kindness, but random acts of giggles are welcome in my life 🙂
I hope that I have just done the same for you…
Seeing that Klout once said that I am influential about unicorns, I thought that this would be fitting (hee hee):
Having many gorgeous nieces and nephews around, I have grown accustomed to reading them bedtime stories filled with ridiculous stories of frogs turning into princes, and the pretty demure princess getting the handsome prince and living happily ever after. A farce based on fanciful stupors of materialistic royalty and shallow goals.
I read a story to my nephew over the weekend that was pretty damn cool, though, in my books.
A Golden Touch
There was once a king who wished that everything he touched would turn to gold.
His wish was granted by a passing fairy, and he ran around his palace turning all his belongings into gold. Vases, statues, plates and even cushions were turned to gold as soon as he touched them.
“I will be so rich,” he thought.
Before long, the king started to feel hungry.
“Bring me some fruit,” he ordered his servant. But when the king picked up an apple, it turned to gold before it even reached his lips.
The king began to feel very sad, but when his wife tried to comfort him with a hug, even she turned to gold.
“I never want to see gold again,” sobbed the king and he wished with all his heart for things to be back to normal.
Luckily, the fairy, who had been watching all along, took pity on him. everything changed back to the way it had been before.
The king had learned his lesson and he knew that there were many ordinary things more valuable than gold.
Okay, so if I had written the story, the fairy wouldn’t have taken pity on the king, but you get the point…
