Screw Loose: Funny Friday

Funny Friday:a multi-blogger challenge: one picture, five captions,  | developed and run by | #MyGraphics

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.

Here's today's picture. It was submitted by Me!

Funny Friday, a multi blogger picture captioning challenge | Picture taken by and property | #funny #laugh

1. Dad (mumbling under his breath): Some assembly required, they said. It'll be easy, they said. Easy, my ass.
Son: What, daddy?
Dad: I said grass, It'll be easy to assemble on the grass.
Grandfather (under his breath): Grass, my ass. 

2. Mom (to grandmother, both watching from the kitchen): You know he'll be a teenager before they get that done. 
Grandmother: It can be his high school graduation gift.

3. Grandmother (to mom): Let's go get mani pedis. You know dear, we should find them an 8 hour project every weekend. 

4. Son: Is it done yet?
Dad: We're just starting.
Son: Now?
Dad: It's going to take some time.
Son: Is it done yet?
Dad: I think mom's calling you why don't you go see what she wants?
Son: Then it'll be done?
Dad (under his breath): If she keeps you in there till dinner time.

5. Dad (walking into the house triumphantly): It's done! There were only like 6 screws left over, I'm sure they were extras.
Mom (whispering to grandmother): If he thinks I'm putting my son on a swing that's missing screws, he's got a screw loose himself.

And now for something yummy:

1 TBSP baking cocoa
1 TBSP sugar
1/4 cup brewed coffee
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup powdered sugar
*Whisk the baking cocoa and sugar into the brewed coffee. Mix in 1/4 cup milk and set aside to cool.
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 muffin tin wells with non stick spray.
*Whisk together the remaining 1 cup of milk, eggs, flour and salt. Whisk the coffee mixture one more time, then drizzle into the batter (do not stir).

*Take the pan out of the oven and quickly pour the batter evenly into the 12 wells.
*Bake for 35  minutes, without opening the oven at all.
*Run a knife around the edges and pop the puffs out of the pan (they will deflate). Sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
