Man Down: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Basketball hoop to self: I'm not getting any younger and those kids just wear me out. I'm just gonna lay down and take a quick rest.

2. Kid (walking into the house and calling out to his mom): OK, I went out to play and I beat that game, can I come back in now?

3. Therapist: So why are you here?
Basketball hoop: Well, I've been bullied my whole life . . . hit, grabbed and swung on, had things thrown at me . . . it's become like a game to them.

4. Kid: I like it, at least I'll finally be able to make a basket. 

5. Kid: Hey dad, man down!

Raspberry Red Velvet Truffles        

Printable Recipe

1 package (12.2 oz) Red Velvet Oreos
4 oz cream cheese
1 TBSP Chambord (can substitute 1 tsp raspberry extract)
2 TBSP seedless raspberry jam
8 oz red candy melts
*Crush the cookies in a food processor. Add the cream cheese, the liquor (or extract) and the jam. Pulse to incorporate. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
*Roll into approximately 25 3/4 inch balls. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper and stick a toothpick into each. Freeze for at least an hour.
*Melt the candy melts in the microwave until smooth when stirred. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip each truffle into the candy melt to coat. Let the excess run off, then stick the toothpick into styrofoam (you can place them onto parchment paper but the tops will be flat). 
*Once set, remove the toothpick. Store in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature to serve.
*Store in refrigerator.

  2. Yum on the truffles, ma'am! Love your captions, but I seem to have a deep connection with the hoop's number one! Forgive me for being late. My blog wouldn't let me comment on it, thus a long morning of using foul language. LOL. Happy Friday, friend!

    1. You're not late, it's never a party till you get there.

  3. Oh, that's a man down, all right. The most important man if you ask me. Your treats sound so scrumptious.

    1. Believe it or not, that's the second time our basketball hoop was knocked down.

  4. ha ha, the basketball hoop that takes a rest. I like your use of giving objects a voice.
