Friday Foibles ~~ Failure to Launch?




Welcome to a new feature here at Gumbo Writer's place. Management hopes you will enjoy these FRIDAY FOIBLES (*whoops* and *oopsies* the human animal often performs). It's my way of saying happy TGIF to you!

When you see the stick figure plunging down the stairs, you'll be reminded that Friday's finally here and a laugh is coming right up.

Now, to recap the schedule here at the blog, on Mondays we explore brain food and useless trivia usually; Tuesdays are yummy recipe day; Wednesdays are all about writing; Thursday is a sorta hodgepodge catch-all day which sometimes also feature writing stuff; on Fridays we showcase something for your funny bone (Friday Foibles or Ledbetter Lunacy); Saturdays are potluck because y'all are all busy to be stuck in front of your computers; and Sundays we round the week off with nonsense from those crazy Cajuns Boudreaux & Thibodaux.

Back to the Foibles -- The premiere installment of FF shows Bubba trying to launch his boat. Perhaps he has failed to fully grasp the concept. Judge for yourself. And have a great weekend!

Gues the car's engine had overheated, and it couldn't wait to cool off! :)

Dorraine said...

Thanks for the laughs, Angie!

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

Giggles a bunch! Notice that the oops was a man driving! Need I say more!

Janna Qualman said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhmygoodness. It's a doozy! Love it.

That picture is me getting into many projects before I've thought them through. Nice!
Like the new line up.

Hahah, this happened to hubby one year. The truck IS still running. : ) Happy Friday!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

LOL Jinksy. Mebe so.

Dorraine - My pleasure. :)

So true, Donna. A woman might've scraped a pier pole, but never driven in bass-ackwards.

TGIF Janna.

Thank you, Wendy!

Jeannette - Yeah, he's in real deep. Wonder how long it took him to figure things out? You're a winner too. :D

Hey kimmi! Hugs (& I have a hard time imagining Super Man launching backwards).

WendyCinNYC said...

Oh man. Think that dude's been drinking?

Angie Ledbetter said...

Wendy - Either that, or he's just a scabooble headed doober. :)

Marguerite said...

I'd say that he's in over his head, for sure. Hilarious! Have a wonderful weekend, Angie!

Deb Shucka said...

What's really funny about this picture is Bubba doesn't seem too concerned about the situation, but rather is very busy inspecting that rope. I wonder how/why he got out of his truck in the first place. :-)

Angie Ledbetter said...

You do the very same, Marguerite!

Deb - Maybe his driver brother's still in the cab?? :)

Sharla said...

You might be a redneck if... :)))

~jill said...

when we first got married, we'd pack an ice chest and go sit at the boat ramps to watch the fun. you would not believe the chaos there!

Jill Kemerer said...

That picture is hilarious!! Thanks for the smiles!

Robyn Campbell said...

Oh Angie! Cup of joe $4.00, Copy paper and ink $17.00, Watching Bubba do a boat launch PRICELESS! Love it. Happy weekend! :)

Lynnette Labelle said...

LOL That guy's got P-R-O-B-L-E-M-S.

Hahaha! I wish I could say I was surprised, but in Loo-siana, anything's possible. Suddenly, I'm really proud of my papa. Even with several beers in him, he's never done THAT at the boat launch.

I'm with Deb S. - I think it's particularly hilarious that Bubba hasn't noticed where his truck is yet... or maybe he just doesn't care. To give him the benefit of the doubt, the truck could be his wife's in the divorce settlement... I'm just sayin'.

Jenn Johansson said...

Haha! I love it! Gotta give Bubba some credit, he managed to launch something... just not the boat.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Sharla & Lynnette - For reals!

jill - what a fun and free date site. :)

You're welcome, Jill K.

LOL Robyn. Great weekend to you too.

Laura - I'm not sure where Bubba lives, but it COULD happen here. Love your possible scenarios...ya just can't turn off the writer, hunh? :D

Carrie Wilson Link said...

OMHOG!

Melissa Marsh said...

Hilarious!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Jenn, hehe, yeah.

Carrie - everytime I read that, it makes me laugh!

Hey Melissa. Glad ya enjoyed. :)

Carmen said...

Oh man...that's just sad!

Carmen said...

PS: and funny!

Suzanne said...

I am laughing out loud! (And I don't DO that!)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Too true, Carmen.

Suzanne - Glad ya got a grin. :D

colbymarshall said...

Hahaha...that would be my luck if I ever tried boating!
