Why is this in any way funny? Simply because in the subject line, the word ‘ion’ means ‘something’ in Esperanto. The subject line in English would read ‘I made ‘something’ out of wood!’ Cue the laugh track [link] This is my first ‘project’ made with my scroll saw.
The two elephants are friends of my daughter from of old. The mouse lemur, Mort is a newcomer from last year. Evidently the boys got into my clamps.
Above you see a wooden sculpture of a tornado It is a wood tornado. The word for ‘wood’ in Esperanto is ligno Ligno-tornado means wood turning, (like on a lathe) in Esperanto. Ligno-tornado also means ‘wood tornado’, (like the funnel storm) in Esperanto. (context would differentiate the meanings.)...Cue laugh track. N.B. Not responsible for health issues due to sustained laughter from this post. What’s Esperanto? [link]

Why buy it when you can make it! #31: I went for some Swedish meatballs, and walked out with a bonus chuckle
My 3 year old daughter associates the letter I with 3 things: her name, ice cream, and IKEA. This past weekend, I took her to IKEA to get ice cream, and to cause chaos running around the showroom. Armed with a bag (which was quickly forgotten) she got to work, wrecking a few hours of havoc in the store (and my psyche). About 2 hours in, we got to the dresser section. While I was there, a husband and wife couple were “cordially” debating over the stained or laminate venee...
Did you here about the guy at the sawmill who had the whole left side of his body cut off? Don’t worry, he’s all right. Did you hear about the woodworker who died when he fell into a vat of varnish? It was a terrible end, but a beautiful finish Not a joke you tell, but rather, one you play. You look wistfully into the blue sky and say “hey! dad will be on the plane by now” Your companion will invariably ask “where’s he going?” You respond ...
This one is priceless. A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down th...

I’ve actually heard other’s speak of similar experience, but as I’ve never had it first hand, I had always spoke in favor of the stores, and tried to bring a second side to each story. This time – I was on an unfamiliar side of the story… maybe this has happened to you?
