TricycleIt’s a long weekend in Ontario, so let’s lead into it with some Friday word fun!

  • Creative haikus about traffic (thanks to Sue Ridewood for the link). Example appropriate to Ontario holiday weekend traffic: “Need a few days off / after Sunday night drive from / the vacation house.”
  • Shakespeare’s plays compressed into tweets, usually funny. Example: “Hamlet: Hamlet avenges his father, and it only takes four hours.”
  • Funny name quiz. Is it a discontinued Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavour or a band on MySpace? Hard to tell!
  • Everyone is talking about the smutty Fifty Shades of Grey. But the funniest are Ellen DeGeneres and (not safe for work) Gilbert Gottfried reading excerpts from the book.

Have a great weekend!
