I collect koalas. No, not real, live koalas! I have koala statues, koala pictures, koala stuff of all kinds. I actually have thinned out my collection, keeping only the best ones. Of course, I also have koala jokes. So, here they are:
Koalafy: What every athlete must do to play in the Australian Olympics
B.C. comic by Johnny Hart
The nun leaves and returns in a few minutes with a steaming cup. The pilot takes the cup gratefully, but upon taking a sip, instantly gags and spits it out. "This tea is filled with hair!", he exclaims disgustedly.
"Oh, I'm dreadfully sorry!" The nun replies, "I forgot to tell you: The koala tea of Mercy is not strained."
(A pun based on the phrase, "The quality of mercy is not strained." taken from The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.)
A Koala walks into a restaurant, sits down and orders dinner. After he has finished eating, the waiter brings him his bill. The koala shoots the waiter and heads for the door. The restaurant owner runs over and stops him. "You can't come into my restaurant, eat my food, kill my waiter, and then walk out! Who do you think you are?" The koala says "A Koala. Look it up." The owner gets a dictionary and looks up koala. It say, "Marsupial. Eats shoots and leaves".
(You know, as in shoots and leaves off a eucalyptus tree!)
I'm a little fond of Mighty Mouse. He was a cartoon character quite a few years ago. I used to have a Mighty Mouse doll. It's body was made out of some kind of soft plastic and he had a cloth cape. When I picked a name to use on ICQ I picked Mighty Mouse. The reason is:
"For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness."
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
So, here is my Mighty Mouse collection:
Mighty Mouse first aired on CBS on the "The Mighty Mouse Playhouse" on December 10th, 1955. He was the first cartoon character ever to appear on Saturday mornings. The show ran for 11 years and became the longest lasting Saturday morning cartoon series. Pearl Pureheart was his girlfriend and his foe was Oil Can Harry.
Here's the words to the theme song:
Mr. Trouble never hangs around when he hears this mighty sound,
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!
Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right,
Mighty Mouse will join the fight!
On the sea or on the land,
He's got the situation well in hand!
I got the coolest email from a man in Canada who makes kites. He used one of these pictures and put it on a kite! The kite is called a pillow kite and is five feet wide by three feet high. Mighty Mouse is over four feet long from fist to tail! Isn't that neat?
FLY, Mighty Mouse, FLY!
When I was young I had a plain old rubber Mighty Mouse figure. I loved that doll. I would fly him around the yard. I even remember laying him down for him to sleep. His rubber eyes were wide open so I pretended they closed when I walked away.
I found one just like it on Ebay!
Goofy looking, huh? I loved that doll! I could buy this one on Ebay for only $72.00. Har! The things I should have kept! Who woulda' thunk it?
