• My Favorite Funny Blog Posts

    September 10, 2012

    Last night, I got sucked into reading my own blog. You know, the “You May Also Like” images at the bottom of each post? Well, I clicked on one of them and started reading an old post. That post brought up a bunch of different “You May Also Like” posts, so I read another… and another… and then one of my favorite Murphy posts popped up there.

    Do you remember The Donkey? I loved writing that post. Haha! Murphy was so freaked out by it, but I guess he outgrew his fear because he’s not afraid of the donkey in our new neighborhood.


    Anyway, reading “The Donkey” post last night put the biggest smile on my face and got me thinking about other blog posts that still crack me up. Here are two of my very favorite funny posts that always make me laugh no matter how many times I read them.

    Today: My dog is The Biggest Loser

    I love Elizabeth. She’s so funny and such a witty writer, so when her dog, Clark, wasn’t feeling well, she wrote a hilarious post about their visit to the vet. If you’re a dog owner/lover, you’ll definitely get a kick out of it!

    And that’s why you should learn to pick your battles.

    Have you guys heard of The Bloggess? She’s absolutely hilarious—follow her on Twitter too! Anyway, she wrote this post after getting in a tiff with her husband. The story is absolutely ridiculous and guaranteed to make you laugh.

    I actually love this post so much, I even have a picture of “Beyoncé” hanging on my office bulletin board. (The post was reprinted in the March issue of Ladies Home Journal.) It always manages to make me smile, especially when I’m having a bad day. FYI: This post has 3,800+ comments on it!

    Last night, Mal and I enjoyed dinner outside on our back porch. The weather was beautiful, so we took advantage and sat outside. Mal grilled chicken outside while I made salads and couscous (for him) in the kitchen.

    Meanwhile, Murphy ate strawberries off of our strawberry plant. What a butthead. Do pugs even like strawberries? I think he just wanted some attention since Mal and I were both busy doing other things.

    I topped my salad with avocado and a little salt and pepper for some added flavor.

    Mal and I were starving, so we ate our chicken and salads while we waited for our Sweet Potato Wedges to finish cooking.

    OMG I love The Bloggess, she’s hilarious. If you enjoy her, she wrote a book called “Let’s Pretend this Never Happened.” It’s seriously the funniest thing I’ve ever read. I looked insane laughing to the point of tears on the bus to and from work every day.


    Tina September 10, 2012 at 8:36 am

    I should really buy her book. I bet I would love it!


    tag September 10, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    @Tina: her book was great, I read that before coming across her blog!


    Colleen @ What's Baking in the Barbershop?! September 10, 2012 at 8:41 am

    I haven’t made sweet potatoes much this summer and now I’m wondering why since they’re my favorite… I think I need to get back on the sweet potato wagon this fall! Your dinner last night looks so yummy!


    Natalie @ FreshLifeFindings September 10, 2012 at 8:42 am

    Haha I love that chicken post from Bloggess. Thanks for sharing a new blog with me, I always need a good laugh 🙂 And that picture of Murphy staring at the donkey is hilarious because his eyes look so scared. I’m jealous of your patio, looks like the perfect way to have dinner on a weekend!


    Michelle @ Eat Move Balance September 10, 2012 at 8:44 am

    Mama Pea’s posts can definitely crack me up. Like, literally, laughing out loud.


    Jenica September 10, 2012 at 8:47 am

    Has Mal committed to the new eating style you’ve taken on, or do you prepare extra sides for him?


    Tina September 10, 2012 at 8:48 am

    He mostly eats a Paleo diet, but he’s really not strict with it.


    Ali @ Peaches and Football September 10, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Wow, TheBloggess was hilarious. Nothing like a good laugh for early on a Monday morning!!!

    I get excited whenever anyone talks about grilling food. I’m about a month away from moving out of my apt into a house and am SO excited to be able to grill out soon!!! (Hopefully before it snows 🙂 )


    Anele @ Success Along the Weigh September 10, 2012 at 8:53 am

    I love the pic of Murphy with the donkey looking at you like “mom…kill it!”

    I’ll have to go check out these other blog posts!


    Angela @ Happy Fit Mama September 10, 2012 at 8:55 am

    The Bloggess is awesome! Her book is great too.


    Katie @ Talk Less, Say More September 10, 2012 at 9:14 am

    Strawberries are good – can you blame Murphy? 😉


    lauren September 10, 2012 at 9:15 am

    Do you read cake wrecks? It’s pretty hilarious.


    Tina September 10, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Yes! So funny! Haha!


    Laura @ RunningJunkie123 September 10, 2012 at 9:20 am

    I think I’ll have to add “The Bloggess” to my roll since it got so much positive feedback on here.

    The weather was so great yesterday! Your food looks amazing!


    Anna Sims September 10, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I have to say the chicken story has been the highlight of my day…..and made a really boring day in the office a little easier to work through.


    Tina September 10, 2012 at 9:22 am

    Haha! Nice! 🙂


    Katie @ Peace Love & Oats September 10, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Haha we also think my brother’s dog is a weirdo. She is scared of everything, except people who she flings herself at. We’re pretty positive she thinks she’s a human and not a dog, and she also likes to sit her butt on the couch with her front paws straight down on the ground. No idea how that’s comfortable… But the couch is the perfect height for her front legs to reach the ground (She’s a golden retriever).


    Lacey @ familyfitnessandfoodery September 10, 2012 at 9:57 am

    Great post! Thanks for the links.
    That chicken avocado salad just made me drool a little.


    Annette@FitnessPerks September 10, 2012 at 10:03 am

    Oooh I want to read those posts! Thanks 🙂

    Love me some chicken & sweet potatoes. Good stuff!


    MoneyAfterGrad September 10, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Murphy looks so guilty in the strawberry photo. And thanks for the links, that Beyonce post was pretty hilarious!


    Meghan @ After the Ivy League September 10, 2012 at 10:41 am

    That Bloggess post is seriously too funny! Thanks for sharing!


    Rachel September 10, 2012 at 10:51 am

    haha awww! Murphy lol that’s like my Grandma’s dog.. she’ll eat anything if no one is giving her attention haha yesterday she was eating bark haha


    Lisa September 10, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Back when she first posted it, that Bloggess post had me and my coworker in stitches. We were both crying from laughing so hard. Later that week, she brought me in a (much smaller, obv) metal chicken that she found at a craft store. We named him Finneous and take turns keeping him on our desk. Oftentimes, when I am having a bad day, I go back and read that post. Lifts my spirits every time….


    Eating 4 Balance September 10, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Funniest blog post I’ve ever read… Besides that chicken post…

    Stories and Sweet Potatoes’ Six Degrees of Hippy Bullsh*t: http://storiesandsweetpotatoes.com/2012/04/11/six-degrees-of-hippie-bullshit/ I usually hate reading posts with cuss words in the title, but this was hilarious! And sadly too true.


    Paige @ Healthy Hits the Spot September 10, 2012 at 11:46 am

    That IS the best blog post ever haha!


    KiKi September 10, 2012 at 11:49 am

    Can’t wait to read the links. Sometimes, I cannot handle Murphy’s cuteness.


    Kati Mora, MS, RD, Kellogg's FiberPlus(R) Wellness Advocate September 10, 2012 at 11:53 am

    I love the salad! Adding the avocado is such a fun way to boost the flavor and fiber content just a bit. Looks delicious!


    Taylor @ liftingrevolution September 10, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    OMG funniest story ever! My anniversary is next week, perhaps some embroidered towels would be the perfect gift?


    Tina September 10, 2012 at 12:02 pm



    Beks September 10, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Murphy makes the funniest faces! He’s so expressive!


    Alison September 10, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Haha, the Bloggess post is hilarious. It’s funny how married couples can get into fights over the most ridiculous things. A recent post that cracked me up is from BERF – where she tells her mom that she is going to name her new son PeKanz. I was dying.


    Laura @ She Eats Well September 10, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I can’t think of the funniest blog post I’ve read, but I do love runningoffthereeses.com – all her blog posts crack me up big time.


    Jennifer L September 10, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    @Laura @ She Eats Well: I love runningoffthereeses too! she’s hilarious.


    Jennifer L September 10, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    I used to think dogs all liked pretty much the same thing: meat, peanut butter, and meat wrapped peanut butter. But my mom’s dog LOVES vegetables and refuses to eat deli meat. If you give him salami he’ll drop it on the floor, but he’ll eat an entire bowl of kale if you let him. Is this even natural? The best part is that he’s a beast of a dog (100 pound lab/golden retriever mix) and he looks like he’ll bite your face off, but all he really wants is your salad.

    Last summer I came across the story about Beyonce’. Laughed until I cried, which I needed SO much — I had just moved to a new town with teenagers who were pretty ticked off at moving. Emailed it to 2 of my best buds from my former town, they both told me they laughed until they cried, too. Fast forward… months. I went back to my town for something. Went walking with my buds. On the trail… IS BEYONCE’!! One of my friends purchased a Beyonce’ — she is making the rounds in my former town, and I have never felt more loved than when she showed up on my walk. So awesome. Everyone needs a little Beyonce’ in her life… 🙂


    Christina @ The Beautiful Balance September 10, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    I am literally in tears after reading about Beyonce. Seriously, how am I JUST reading her blog?!


    Cindy @ The Flipping Couple September 10, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    My dog picks tomatoes from our garden and eats them. She waits until they’re almost red (but not red enough for me to pick them) and chows down in the backyard. She’s also gotten more cucumbers out of the garden than I have and she’s working on obliterating the squash plant. She’d probably love to help Murphy take care of the strawberries. What a punk!!


    Katie September 10, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Thanks for making me laugh! I was crying & laughing out loud alone in my house (loudly) with the windows/doors open….the neighbors know think I’m weirder than they already did!


    diane September 10, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    I haven’t even been reading you that long and have told soooo many of my friends about Murphy and the donkey. Cracks. Me. Up.
    All & Sundry makes me laugh pretty frequently, but especially this post:


    chelsey @ clean eating chelsey September 10, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    My favorite line of the Beyonce post is…

    “me: The 5-foot tall one was $300, marked down to $100. That’s like, $200 worth of chicken for free.”

    Oh my gosh, I’ve gotten myself all worked up and in a tizzy from reading that again. Hilarious


    Angie @ Pint of Goals September 10, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    I LOVE The Bloggess’ post about Beyonce! I laugh so hard I cry. I also live her one about the stuffed monkey she finds at the thrift store. So frickin’ funny. Thank you for reminding me about it!


    Vicky September 11, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    I’m a little late commenting, but have you read Pioneer Woman’s adventure buying a donut? http://thepioneerwoman.com/blog/2011/12/all-i-wanted-was-a-doughnut/
    Sadly, I completely identified with the whole thing!


    Trine-Marie September 17, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Oh my god. The “Beyoncé” post made me laugh so bad that my husband asked me what was going on 😛


    Tina September 17, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Haha! 🙂
