Running Friday Funny

Sometimes I wonder if I am running out of ideas for the Friday Funny. The above picture might not be funny, but is a splendid piece of art to finish the week with.

Here is a funny video called "The Running Matador".

Running is a very serious sport, usually lacking in funny moments.

That is until we see a guy who just doesn't get it.

This next running race is also a bit out of the ordinary. Could it be a modern take on the "Hare and the Tortoise" race ?

Running Jokes 1

A blonde goes out for a run. She comes to a river and cannot see a bridge anywhere nearby.

She spots another blonde on the opposite bank. "Yoohoo doll!" she shouts, "How can I get to the other side?"

The second blonde looks up the river then down the river then shouts back, "You're already on the other side!"

Running Jokes 2

A brunette was jogging down the street saying "66,66,66" etc. a blonde comes up behind her asking her "why are you saying 66."

The brunette says "It helps me jog better." So, the blonde goes across the street and starts saying "66,66" etc.

The brunette yells "Its a lot easier if you do it in the street." So, the blonde goes in the middle of the street saying "66" all of a sudden a truck comes up and hits her.

The brunette keeps jogging down the road saying "67,67,67".

And full proof of the validity of the above jokes is very evident in the following photo finish.

This next video is all about sticking by your friends in times of trouble.

The Joy of Jogging

1. For every mile you jog, you add one minute to your life. This enables you, at the age of 85, to spend an additional five months in a nursing home at $5,000/month.
2. The only reason I took up jogging was to hear heavy breathing again.
3. I joined a health club last year, spending $400 in the process. I haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.
4. I have to exercise early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
5. I like long runs, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
6. The advantage to exercising every day is that you die healthier.
7. I have flabby thighs but fortunately my stomach covers them.
8. If you are going to take up cross-country running, it helps to start with a small country.
9. I don't jog; it makes me spill my milk shake.
10. Actually, I don't exercise at all. If we were meant to touch our toes, we would have them farther up on our body.

But not everyone who goes out running is exactly who the appear to be.

If you think that runner looked surprised, then check out the surprise you get when we find out who is jogging along in these running shoes.

This one isn't so funny, as just absolutely incredible. Parkour Free Running was invented by the Russians, and combined running with amazing gymnastic stunts in public places.

Serious Warning: Don't try this at home!

Something else incredible is this crazy UK guy called "Neg", and his Urban take on running sports.

(Warning: Some viewers may be offended by the language in this video).

Neg would definitely never get away from these security guys.

That's just about it for another Friday Funny.

But just before we go: Remember that advice that your mother gave you about never running with scissors in your hand?

That's it for now, I've got to run off and start another big weekend.
