Gone to Pot

Time for a FUNNY FRIDAY!!!!!

A little (toilet) humor and a short story..............

I really won't go into all the DIRTY details of this, but.....every time Jim's sister comes to visit, she stops up the toilet!  No one really knows what she's doing in there - and  we don't WANT to know either, but it happens every time.  LOL!  Last time they were here Jim and his brother in law ended up having to go outside and dig up part of the sewer line to fix the problem!  Talk about a messy job.......but it had to be done!!  After that little episode, every time she'd go into the bathroom, we'd start banging on the door with warnings (and a lot of laughter of course).  I also took the plunger and tied a bow on it and put it in the bathroom - just for her! LOL!!  I'm going to send this to her so she'll know we still want her to come back!


The image is from Dude Time Doodles.....it was a freebie last week but you can still find it in the DTD store.
The idea of the little flower came after seeing Tammy's card last week.  She had an entire bouquet on hers and I loved it (go by and check out all her wonderful cards) but all you get on mine in one single flower!  In fact, if you check out the Dude Time Doodles blog you'll see all the DT's cards with this image - and just be amazed.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Art Impressions Stamps (Make Us Laugh).

Thanks for stopping by......and remember to always flush, conserve toilet paper, and have that plunger handy.....................KEEP SMILING..........

What a funny story, Lynn. At least everyone has a good sense of humor down there. I really would like to hear what your SIL says when she receives this precious card. I love the way you made the floor and, of course, that sentiment is outstandingly funny. The flower is the perfect touch. Have a wonderful weekend.

Ha ha ha!

Fantastic story & a great card to give to your SIL. This was just wonderful to wake up to & read.

Where did you get that toilet image? My partner does the same thing, so I think it would be fun to create something similar for him - Ha!

Happiness,
Corrinne

Lynn, you've made me laugh, again! All it takes is one flower to stop up a turlet!

Leslie Hanna said...

OMG, I'd be mortified! Yikes! It sounds like she keeps a sense of humor about it, though.

I wonder how many non-crafters wonder that so many of us have toilet stamps. I should break mine out this weekend -- totally forgot I had it!

Vicky Hayes said...

Oh Lynn! I have a brother-in-law that does that everywhere he goes! I LOVVE this card! But I wouldn't have the nerve to send it to him, he doesn't have a sense of humor about it!

Shawna said...

Too funny Lynn!!! Sure hopes she finds the humor, too ;-) Love that floor you added to your card!!

Dixie said...

So funny! Your card is hilarious, and oh so perfect for the "occasion". I love the tiled floor, and your sentiment (haha), and all the delicate pink details. But you tying a bow on the plunger just takes the cake :D

Sharon said...

Oh my golly Lynn, you make me laugh. What a story! Hope she'll like the card, it's a fab one! One needs a sense of humour is situations such as these...lol

Nancy in Iowa said...

Great family memories right there! Great story! Thought I was going to read about a toilet fundraiser. we fill salvaged potties with beautiful flowers and people pay to have the 'john' delivered in its full glory to a neighbors front year, the only way to remove the florabuna pot from your yard is to may to send it on to the next unsuspecting neighbor! BTW Very very cute cardl
