Those mittens

Peace-loving person that I am, I generally try to avoid sharing political memes on social media. But occasionally, something comes along that is so funny I just have to make an exception.

A photo of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Biden-Harris inauguration, sitting with his arms crossed and wearing gigantic mittens, proved irresistible to the meme artists of the world.

Even the Senator himself is reported to think the memes are hilarious. So of course I haven’t been able to resist sharing a few of my own favorites.

Fashion magazines love to tell readers how to re-create a celebrity’s outfit. Note the manila envelope.

The Senator photobombs the vice presidential debate.

Here he is with one of our favorite cartoon characters.

Go ahead … pull up a seat at the table.

This has to be one of my favorites.

This was inevitable …

And last but not least, one web site (link HERE) even lets users insert the image into any Google street view photograph. Just type in your address/location and voila! So I simply had to invite the Senator – and his mittens – to our house.

My first thought upon seeing the memes was, “I want those mittens!” They look super warm. Alas, the mittens were a gift to Mr. Sanders from a supporter who reported on Twitter that she made them from some rather unusual materials. So they are truly one of a kind:

How cool is that?

Some holy humor

I just love all those funny church memes. Who says Christians can’t have a sense of humor? Here are my “Top 10” favorites this week.

When I saw this meme, I could still hear my own mother holding forth with one of her many “Momisms.”

Talk about missing the boat …

Needless to say, I made sure my sweet hubs saw this:

For anyone who has ever had to mess with technology at church …

And while we’re on the subject of technology …

As someone who had to do a lot of academic research over the course of my career, I find this one seriously funny.

I’m getting to just about the right age to appreciate this one.

There’s gotta be at least one COVID-19 meme in every bunch these days. I have a pair of “Cat in the Hat” slippers that would be perfect for the occasion.

Here’s one of my all-time favorites.

And another favorite … LOL!

Time for some cute animals

I know I’ve been spending way too much time on Facebook during this dang quarantine. But so far I’ve been resisting the urge — at least most of the time — to share the dozens of political memes that have been popping up on my news feed lately. I’d prefer to let others fight about the upcoming election and the best way to handle the coronavirus.

Cute animal memes help me maintain this discipline. So I’ve been collecting and sharing my favorites. Here are my “Top 10.”

Of all the variations on the “Woman Yells at Cat” meme, I think I like this one the best.

If the animals really could talk they’d probably say we taste like chicken.

Ms. Kitty means so well. How can we NOT be appreciative??

Get the tomato juice ready.

No truer meme was ever created.

An oldie but goodie.

Gotta have at least one bad pun.

Or two.

This is SO sweet.

And last but not least, my absolute favorite meme of all time.
