one-sentence funnies

Here's a bit of light summer reading. Enjoy. Maybe some of these will inspire you in your writing.

1. A day without sunshine is like night.

2. OK, so what's the speed of dark?

3. On the other hand, you have different fingers.

4. 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.

5. 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

6. Remember, half the people you know are below average.

7. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

8. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap.

9. Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.

10. If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.

11. When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

12. Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.

13. Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

14. What happens if you get scared half to death, twice?

15. Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?


  1. Inspiring topics that generate whirlwinds of intriguing thoughts. You may have provided a basket of ideas to pry loose writers-block.

  2. Very clever. I'll need to figure out how to use a few of them.

  3. Hey Elma, you are light for inspiring writers.
    Upon communications with the new writers/members whom have written me, I don't hesitate to send them your way. You can take a teacher out of the school, but you can't take the schoolin' out of the teacher. I'm sure, by nature, it's your heart that shares.

    Now, as for the speed of dark? The universe is full of light, visible and invisible. In most cases, the speed of dark is beyond what the eyes can see. If we saw all light with our eyes, we'd see nothing. Divine design is amazing!

    Anyways, thankyou for sharing! Your first poem reminds me of my first painting in kindergarten, "The Kingdom of God". You are a blessing.
