Make Mike Maze Laugh!

Posted July 10, 2008

One of the many endearing qualities of WRAL Meteorologist Mike Maze is his ability to laugh and not take himself too seriously. Mike is one of the hardest workers I've known and a superb meteorologist but he's never too engrossed to pass up a light hearted moment. Occasionally Mike “gets the giggles” on air. He did so this morning when talking about the downpour in Lizard Lick last night. I must confess there are some of us who enjoy egging Mike on. Today I invite you to egg him on.

The person with the best story or joke to make Mike Maze laugh will win a CD or DVD of their choice from my growing collection. Keep it clean but make it funny! Make Mike Maze laugh!

    A married couple in their early 60's was celebrating their 40th
    wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.
    Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table.
    She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.' The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.'
    The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands. The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic,
    but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.' The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish. So...the fairy waved her magic wand and -poof! -the husband became 92 years old.
    The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful ........ should remember fairies are female.

    A battery walks into a bar, and asks if he can buy a drink.

    The bartender says "sure, but don't start anything."

    My four-year-old daughter was asking questions about God one day destroying the earth. I told her that one day God would make a new heaven and a new earth. She asked, "Why is He going to do that?"

    My 3-year-old chimed right in, "Because He's tired of your fussing!"

    A woman brought a very limp duck to the veterinarian's office. As she lay her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm so sorry, your pet duck Cuddles has passed away."

    The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure?"

    "Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," he replied.

    "How can you be so sure," she protested. "I mean, you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

    The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room, and returned a few moments later with a black Labrador Retriever.

    As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

    The vet patted the lab and led it out of the exam room. He returned a few moments later with a cat.

    Before our granaughters brother was born, I asked what are you going to name him. She was 6 at the time and had a little problem with speech. I suggested George. Oh grandma I can't call him George that is the name for a monkey. I said okay how about Henry. That sounds okay grandma. I said then you could call him Hank for short. Oh grandma I can't call my baby brudder Heck

    Benjamin: Hey Mimi?
    Mimi: Yes, little man
    B: Are the men here to paint?
    M: Yes, they're here
    B: Are they ugly?
    M: I don't think so, Benjamin, why do you ask that? B: Because if they are ugly maybe they need to stay back there and keep painting. I have a ton of boy is hysterical!!! :)

    I like Wheelman's hair story!! I have no story, but I did have to laugh myself when Mike was laughing this morning. It reminded me of times that I was places you should not laugh,and just had to do it!! That is why I love your news--everyone seems to be themselves and can laugh--not too serious all the time. You act live real normal people that like each other!
