Mo Hawg - Week 31


Day 1.

   Mo’s Odd Mathematical Rule for Today: Eight nickels = 2 paradimes

   Mo’s How to Speak English Properly Lesson for Today: (These are jokes, folks!) One-word sentences?  Eliminate.

   Mo’s Household Hint: Cobwebs artfully draped over lampshades reduce the glare from the bulb, thereby creating a romantic atmosphere.  If anyone points out the light fixtures need dusting, simply look confused and exclaim, “What? And spoil the mood?”  You may also throw glitter on them and call them holiday decorations.

   Mo’s Wisdom: Gratitude is a sometime thing in this world.  Just because you’re been feeding them all winter, don’t expect the birds to take it easy on your grass seed.

   Mo’s How to Speak English Properly Lesson for Today: (These are jokes, folks!) Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

   Mo’s Household Hint: Explain the mound of pet hair brushed up against the doorways is that you are collecting it there to use for stuffing hand-sewn play animals for underprivileged children.

   Mo’s Wisdom: The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways.

   More Mo’s Wisdom: The smaller the understanding of the situation, the more pretentious the form of expression.

Day 3.

   Mo’s How to Speak English Properly Lesson for Today: (These are jokes, folks!) the passive voice is to be ignored.

   Mo’s Household Hint: Mix one-quarter cup pine-scented household cleaner with four cups of water in a spray bottle.  Mist the air lightly.  Leave dampened rags in conspicuous locations.  Develop an exhausted look throw yourself on the couch and sigh, “I clean and I clean and I still don’t’ get anywhere!”

   Mo’s been lurking (Mo loves to lurk!) at the courtroom in Colquitt County!  Here are things actually overheard:

  Question: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?

Day 4.

   Mo’s Odd Mathematical Rule for Today: The speed of a tortoise breaking the sound barrier = Mach Turtle

   Mo’s How to Speak English Properly Lesson for Today: (These are jokes, folks!) Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary.  Parenthetical words, however, should be enclosed in commas.

   In my travels, I have collected some of the things that airline attendants say to make the flight a bit more entertaining.  Here are some real examples I’ve heard: “As the plane was coming to a stop at Ronald Reagan airport, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: “Whoa, big fella.  WHOA!”

   Mo’s Wisdom: A bone to the dog is not charity.  Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.

Day 5.

   Mo’s been lurking (Mo loves to lurk!) at the courtroom in Colquitt County!  Here are things actually overheard:

   Question: “What is your date of birth? 

   Answer: July 20th.

   Question: What year?

   Answer: Every year.

   Mo’s How to Speak English Properly Lesson for Today: (These are jokes, folks!) Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.

   In my travels, I have collected some of the things that airline attendants say to make the in-flight safety lecture a bit more entertaining.  Here are some real examples I’ve heard: Weather at our destination is 50 degrees, with some broken clouds.  We’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive.
