Downton Abby or Duck Dynasty?

 Hello, lovely readers!  As you can see, we are back to our house.  But before I continue, I must warn you that if you have not heard of both of the shows mentioned in the title, some of the humor in this post may not make sense.  Because we had invited Julie over, but she said she couldn't make it, Chrissa and I were pleasantly surprised when she showed up at our door ...
 "Julie!  I missed you so much!" my sister yelled, giving Julie a hug. "Even if we were only gone for a couple weeks."
"I missed you too!  How's gymnastics going?" Julie replied, returning the hug.
"It's going great.  It's funny to think that I go to Innerstar University every Thursday and never see you."
"Hello, Julie." I said happily, walking down the stairs to see my friend.
 "Hi, Elizabeth!  Hey- I've got an idea!  Since it's such a long drive, why don't you come and spent Thursday night at my dorm?" Julie offered.
 "That would be wonderful!  If our parents don't mind, I think Chrissa and I would love too." I agreed.
"Awesome!" Julie exclaimed. "Do you want to watch a movie or something when you come over?"
"Have you ever seen Downton Abby?  It's one of my favorite shows." I explained. "I have the first three seasons on DVD."
"Yes!  Only one episode, though." Julie said, nodding. "Do you want to dress up like those Downton Abby people?  I think you have some dresses that would be perfect."
"Indeed I do."
 In very little time, Julie and I had pulled on some of my dresses.
 I wore Caroline's Holiday Gown, ...
 ... while Julie chose to wear Caroline's Travel Dress.
 We were in the middle of a reenactment when Chrissa bust into the room.
 "Hey- enough Downton Abby!  Let's watch Duck Dynasty!" she said, holding a soft drink can. "What?" she added, because Julie and I were both starring at her.
"Chrissa, you just interrupted a very sad moment." Julie said, still starring.
"The thing about Downton Abby is that no matter when I interrupted, something sad would be happening."  Chrissa stated.  "Downton Abby is just too depressing.  That's a fact, Jack!"  
"So perhaps we should watch something that we all would enjoy." I suggested.
"What would that be?  Downton Dynasty?" Julie asked, making us all laugh.
Who, or what, makes you laugh?


  1. Well, Rissa, you make me laugh the most but hmm..... who else.... well Liz and Jubilee make me laugh sometimes. Oh, and yes I agree. Downton Abby IS VERY depressing. Gotta go! Bedtime! Libby

  2. Bad jokes make me laugh :)

    Un-sharped pencils have no point.
    I was addicted to soap once, now I'm clean.
    Wanna hear a joke about paper? Never mind, it's tearable.
    My windows phone broke, windows and be such a pane.
    What do you call someone with a nose and no body? Nobody knows.


  3. What did the buffalo say when his son left for collage? Bison
    What do you call an alligator in a vest? An investigator.
    Let's take all these bad chemistry jokes, and Barium!
    Resistance is not futile, it's voltage divided by current.
    When I talk about computers, I make my motherboard.
    My theory on inertia has no momentum.
    Dishonest golfers don't play the fairway.
    A backward poet write inverse.
    A tardy cannibal gets the cold shoulder.
    I regret not developing my photographic memory.

    An one that only fans of [i]The Princess Bride[/i] will get:

    Daylight Savings Time: We just sucked one hour of your life away- tell me, how do you feel?

    I should stop with the bad jokes, shouldn't I?

    1. Whoops, my HML code didn't work. 'The Princess Bride' should be in italics, sorry.

  4. We love both shows. Downton has some very happy moments with Anna and Mr. Bates. But I will admit the attitude at Duck Commander is always "happy, happy, happy." Now pass my tea glass, Carson. ;-)

  5. My mom and I like Downton Abby!
    Very Cute!
