I wonder what Michael Buble was like as a child …… I bet life was interesting, good fun, eh?
I remember my sister & I used put on variety shows for my parents most weekends when we were young. We used to sing occasionally & dance to Peter & the Wolf or Swan Lake etc .. We were both budding ballerinas - not!!! More like a couple of clodhopping elephants!! I fancied myself at tap dancing though, only my feet wouldn't obey & I'd stand there doing a spot of toe twitching & stamping a lot. I'm also embarrassed to admit … I used to lift my frock up to show my frilly knickers off too. I used to love them you see & would show them to everybody when I had them on. Plus, whenever I got too exuberant & demanding…. my parents used to send me out to the back garden to mow the lawn with a pair of scissors. It was like a jungle out there occasionally, 2 - 3 feet high grass, some of it & I was always advised to cut the clumps 2 inches off at a time so that I well & truly killed it. Thicko here believed everything I was told & when I'd finished that I was duly sent out to turn the soil over with a spoon!!! I used to spend weeks on end out there being useful!!

Plus, as I got a little older …I'll always remember going to watch Keith Chegwin, Maggie Philpin & Co when they came to the Halifax Piece Hall to do some filming for the Noel Edmonds Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, brill atmosphere - I tried to swap my sister for a ticket to see Thin Lizzy but no-one wanted her!! Worth a try though eh?!! Oh boy!! Confessions of a real burke!!! Anyone-else got good confessions.. er.. good memories to share!!

I know we all have funny family stories, why not share the laughter?

Well, the last vacation I went on with my family was to Orlando with my uncle, cousin, grandmother, mother, and I. We were all in the car on the way back to the hotel from dinner when my grandmother asks a question and the group reply came out something like this...

Uncle - Huh?

Cousin - What?

Mom - Oh

Me - Ah

Cousin - Huh?

All of us - Oy

Welcome to my family, y'all LOL

You're kidding! Posted Image Was she embarrassed? Poor girl!

I remember once when I was about six, my Dad had to go and pick up my eldest sister from her boyfriend's house. She was about sixteen, and of course thought our Dad to be the most embarrassing person on earth.

So, just to rile her up a bit, he took Mum's mascara, put it on his eye lashes and all over his eyebrows until he had a massive monobrow about an inch thick across his forehead.

And so of course he goes and knocks on the door, happily chats to the boy's parents who are staring at him like he's an escaped lunatic and fear being attacked. My sister dies of embarrassment and I don't think she spoke to my Dad for quite a while after that.

My mom is the one in the family that gives us most of our humor and she never really realizes that she's doing it. Before I was ever born, there was the pants incident. My family had come home from church and my mom wnet to take a nap. my brother and sister woke her up for the standing dinner they had with some family friends and went with dad to get the car warmed up. My mom comes out in her fur coat and they drive to the restuarant. once inside the place my dad helps my mom off with her oat and she starts complaining about how cold it is. the waiter seats them and she's still going on about how cold it is, while my family and our friends are trying not ot laugh. my mom got up to go to the bathroom in the front of the restaurant...she sashays as only a southern woman can, still complaining mind you, and still doesn't think anything is amiss. My family lets her go all night like this until they get home and tell her....she wasn't wearing any pants.

:) When my daughter was about 3 years old, I was making pancakes one morning and had set the table with forks, plates, butter and Mrs. Butterworth syrup. As I'm cooking the pancakes, I hear her little voice saying "Hello, Syrup"!! She was, of course, talking to Mrs. Butterworth (who comes alive during the commercials!) Some wonderful memories to cherish!

:) When she was about 4 years old, we went downtown and rode on the subway. This was her very first ride on a subway! There was a man wearing an eye patch who sat directly across the aisle from us. In her 4-year old voice (which is quite loud!!) she asks me why the man was wearing a patch on his eye. I whispered in her ear that he may have an eye problem, and then, really, really loudly, she proclaimed that "He might be a pirate"!!! Kids!!! :lol:

OH, how could I have miss this thread? Well here goes one of mines...

My youngest daughter was probably not six yet cause she
was promoted to a higher grade...she was with kids older than her.
Well there was this special play where her grade would represent
many different countries. At the start of the semester the teacher
told them they could pick out the country they wanted to represent.
She chose Japan...well everything was fine...she had her costume
ready, knew her lines...etc. And out of the blue the teacher tells
her she would have to represent another country cause some kids (with influential
parents) wanted another country. My daughter, being who she is...said no.
The teacher said if you don´t change you will not participate in the play.

Well to make this short...she hold on to her guns...so to speak...would not
change countries...but the teacher to get back cut short what she had to
say and changed it so she would not have center stage...

Well comes the day of the play...the teather was pack...lots of high fuluting people
and of course the parents...out comes my daughter...walks to the center of the
stage...while the teacher is going bezerk...telling her to take her spot...
My daughter walks up to the mic...says good evening...looks over to where her
Dad and I were sitting...says her original lines plus the new ones...tells everybody
to enjoy...and then turns to me and her father and YELLS, yes yells...See Mom...
I knew I could do it...while I´m almost fainting in my seat...she takes a bow (spell
check please) and everybody stood up and gave her an ovation. While the
teacher is almost fainting with anger...me saying to myself ...if she is almost six
what have I in store in the future.

When everything was over...many people came over to ask if we were the parents...
I remember quite vividly one comment from the Dean of the Education...she said
"Hon, you have your hands full"...and she was so right!!

Have other ones...will post later...yeah and they are about my youngest.

This is a thread I hadn't noticed.........I had the funniest mother-in-law alive........There are so many stories.....But I'll start with this one.......

One time when she was raising all her kids.....10 kids.....And struggling with money.....She used to take the trolley up town as they had no malls then....
As she was getting off of the trolley and on to the street.....The trolley driver started too fast before she had both feet on the ground.....She fell and hurt
herself.......Of course there was a sum paid to her of 250.00 dollars.........Well Granpa got a hold of the money before she did.....And decided to surprise
her with a present bought with the money.......He comes home with this beat up old car and pushing it into the driveway....It had a few problems......He
is so excited to tell Granma about her present he bought her with her money.....That she did not want......She almost killed him......So she put an add in
the paper......This fine bargain a slightly used car surely going to delight someone.....And sure enough some guy came and decided to buy it.......Granma
said it is a deal......He wrote her out a check for 250.00 dollars and said jokingly....."That check is good as long as you don't try to cash it"....And she said
back to him......jokingly....."That car is good as long as you don't try to drive it"........He got in the car and it wouldn't start and he pushed it up the street...........The end of story......................................She was a Hoot!..................Gram Irene.....

When she was a girl, my father did always this joke to me: I requested to him: "dog" says and my father with humorous tone responded... "I cannot say dog..."

And I insisted, time and time again, did not react in that then, who my father yes could say "dog"...

Just already adult I included/understood its game.

It wanted to count something but, but I please need aid my Bori!!! Ha la la

I just remembered one that I think y'all might get a kick out of.....

The John Travolta underpants fiasco

John Travolta lives in Anthony Florida and the Closest Wal-mart to his home is about 5 minutes from us. Anyways, My mom and I were in Wal-mart at about 3am on christmas morning (she had forgotten to get a gift for grams) and we were minding our own business when suddenly, moms eyes bug out of her head and she ducks down behind a rack of clothes, dragging me down with her. I asked her what she was so afraid of and her response was "THAT"S JOHN TRAVOLTA!". I stuck my head back up over the half price jeans to try and get a good look but she yanked me back down. I asked her where he was and she said "over there, in the mens underwear section". SO, being the curious person that I am...I look. Low and behold, there he is, Bag of boxers in his hand. I nearly fell over laughing....anyways, to make a long story short, she got him to sign said bag of boxers and they now sit on the mantle for all to see :)

Welcome to the family (GO BACK, IT'S A TRAP!!)

Okay, this story is kind of embarrasing :( But it's a funny story... so I'm going to tell you anyways.


I was about 6 or 7 years old. My brothers always loved to play pranks on me. So one day I'm in my room watching some t.v. I start looking around for my remote. I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm standing there in my room saying to myself, "Where is my remote??" I start walking towards the t.v. and the volume on the television starts to go up!! I was like, "WHAT??". So I started stepping back, and the volume went down. I stood there stepping forwards and backwards watching the volume on the television go up and down. I couldn't believe it! I called my brother into my room and told him what was happening. He told me to talk to it, give it commands and see if it would listen. So I said, "T.V. go to channel 45" and what do you know... IT CHANGED TO CHANNEL 45!!! I started jumping up and down, excited and amazed! My brother said, "Go ahead, give it another command." So I said, "T.V. go to channel 51" "T.V. turn volume down "T.V. turn off" "T.V. turn on" "T.V. turn volume up" ... I kept giving my television commands, and it would actually do all these things I would tell it to do. My brother turned around and walked out of the room. I wasn't sure why, but I didn't care. I had a magic TV!!! After he left I sat down on my bed and said, "TV go to channel 25". And it didn't change... so I said it louder. It still didn't change. I got up and started walking towards the TV and noticed that the volume wasn't changing. I started yelling at my TV giving it commands, but it still continued to do nothing. I was yelling and screaming, "YOU STUPID TELEVISION! WHY WONT YOU LISTEN ANYMORE!!!" I could here my brother outside of my room laughing. I went out into the hallway, and there was my brother, on the floor laughing as hard as he could, with my television remote in his hand.

<_<

I felt pretty stupid...

I also have another one that you MIGHT find amusing...


Me, my mom, my dad, my sister, and my brother were all sitting down at the table for dinner one night. I was sitting at the end of the table, with my mom sitting to my right, and my brother sitting to my left. My brother was in a good mood and was telling jokes during dinner. He was on a roll and kept me laughing the whole night. I'm in the middle of taking a drink from my cup (I don't remember what I was drinking, but I remember that it was red) my brother said something funny. I started laughing with this drink in my mouth, and I didn't want to choke on it, so I tried to spit it out. (Yeah, I know.. ewwww) I went to spit the drink back into my cup, but somehow, I missed the cup, and spit my drink into my mom's face. :blink: This made my brother laugh histarically, which made me laugh even more. And my mom is just sitting there, soked in my red drink. So she grabs the biggest cup we have in the house (my brother and I are still laughing histarically at this moment) She sits down and starts pouring the red drink into this cup. She starts laughing with us and she keeps pouring. She fills the cup all the way to the top with this red drink. My brother and I are laughing, my mom is holding the cup in her hand while laughing with us. Then, out of no where, BAM!!!! She throws the drink into my face while we're all laughing!!! So now I'm drenched, my mom is wet, we're all laughing, and my brother ended up falling out of his chair and onto the floor from laughing so hard. So of course, I had to include my brother, and I poured the remaining amount of drink that was left on his back (as he was laying face down on the floor laughing). :D It was a fun night, never quite had a fight over dinner like that before!!!

My family is pretty wierd and brutally funny, and this one time when i was a lot younger my mum went through an arty phase and started taking really random pictures of sunsets and teapots and stupid crap like that, and really liked to talk to the developer guy (the days before the digital age!).
So anyway mum went off to gloat with the photo dude about the latest batch. about an hour later she returns seething with rage and gets in a big huff. when we ask her what's up she gets out the photos and tells us to go through them (all the time glowering at dad)
As it turned out Dad had noticed that there were some free films left in the camera and had gone off to do some photography of his own without telling mum.
At the end of endless sunsets there's a picture of my Dad stood to attention in the livingroom with a lampshade over his head, and another of him sat in the bath holding a newpaper with a cardboard sign saying "Get Help!"

needless to say she wasn't impressed, but the photo guy was :D
(I sure as hell was!!)

OH and this other time my Dad took me and my brother to Toys R Us one day, and me and mum had gone inside for something. anyway as he was driving round to collect us he cruised slowly passed the walkway with his window down, when some woman did a huge wet sneeze right through the window and into his face.
instead of getting arsey with her he simply leaned out of the window and bellowed "BLESS YOU MY DEAR!" and cruised by lmao!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This next one wa told to me by my best mate about her uncle. He's a policeman and one day he did a drugs bust on some crack den and was chasing this smackhead down the road after he'd run out of the back of his flat.
He chased this guy through all these streets and backgardens and finally saw the man run upto a car and get inside. to stop him running away her uncle pulled out his trungeon and swung it as hard as he could at the window to smash it. unfortunately the window wasn't up and he actually belted the guy straight in the face.
Her uncle just stood there and said "....you alright mate?" before arresting him and calling an ambulance LMAO

hahahaha wow, I have a best friend like that. As soon as I read that, I thought to myself "HA! Yep, that's got Stephen written ALL over it" lol

I have another funny story for y'all!

I got to babysit my cousin Jordan who is almost 2 years old and she's learning how to talk by listening to others, right? So most of us watch what we say when we know she's within earshot. Apparently someone wasn't careful enough because when she dropped her sippy cup and couldn't reach it, she looked down at it, rolled her eyes, and said "Sh*t <_< " haha

That's Jordan for ya, she's a kick :D

You're kidding! Posted Image<!--graemlin::D--> Was she embarrassed? Poor girl!

I remember once when I was about six, my Dad had to go and pick up my eldest sister from her boyfriend's house. She was about sixteen, and of course thought our Dad to be the most embarrassing person on earth.

So, just to rile her up a bit, he took Mum's mascara, put it on his eye lashes and all over his eyebrows until he had a massive monobrow about an inch thick across his forehead.

I have a family story even worse than that...I went to the grocery with my dad and my 2 little sisters and lil' brother. Every thing went well until...we were at the register My older male friend(he is a senior in the Bandat my school) who works there turned around and said Hi to me...My little sister Alison turned around and said "Emmmiillly your in LLLLOOOOVVVVEEE" My friend turned around and asked what she had just said. My little brother(I hate him sometimes, but this time he was nice) said that Alison said nothing. Wonderful little ali said "No, I said EEEEEEEMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIILLLYYYY, your in LOOOOVVEEEE" This was sooo embarassing!!! He has a sence of humor and said "Oh, she wont even look at me now" I shook my head...then He said "See you on monday Emily" like something bad was gouing to happen. Nothing happend, but I Knew that we did not have band on mondays...On tuesday, he walked up to me all calm and said "So are we Cool" I said yes,and then he asked what it was, and I said "little sisters"
