I laughed like a loon when I saw the following surf report

Massive 2 cm waves.

If you're not familiar with metric m stands for metres and cm stands for centimetres. 2 centimetres is nearly 1 inch.

This is something I saw which made me smile.

BG - There are many Amish in our area, and they sometimes shop in regular stores.  For those not familiar with the group, they are a very religious people who follow a strict dress code.  Their clothing is very plainly made of dark fabrics.

I was shopping at a nearby Walmart, and saw a married [you can tell by his beard] Amish man walking within the area with the very frilly ladies *unmentionables.*  At first I thought that he was just cutting through to another department, but he was definitely strolling casually and getting an eyeful of the especially wispy items.

When he saw that I had noticed him he blushed a bit and left the area. 

I wonder if he was thinking of a way that he could buy some of this stuff for his wife without his friends finding out, or if he was just curious about what we "English" [non-Amish] women have under our outer clothing.

There is no strict dress code for underwear that I know of, other than "the rest of the household will see it in the laundry, so don't buy that french maid set!"

So he may have been debating whether the wife would go for something a little more frilly. Or just enjoying the view. ;)
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Mine comes from one of the 'my hobby' editions of the xkcd comic. (Warning: Mild language.)

Actually, I like to do a number of Randall's 'hobbies' in my head, but I wouldn't actually do it out loud.

Videos of cats or dogs acting funny.  Or even birds.

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

The fact that when I turn the stereo on in my car, it says, "Hello".  My friends get a kick out of this as well.  Like, "My, what a friendly car you have!"

When I turn the power off on my DVD player, it says, "Bye".  I feel like I should at least wave to it every time.

My friend belonged to a family dance troupe.    They were featured in the paper and identified in the photo caption.  It went like this

L to R:  Suzy Jones, Paula Jones, Michelle Jones, Mary Jones.

Unfortunately this photo was shot at a weird angle (possibly from the ground) and all you could see of Mary Jones were her feet.  Still, she didn't go unidentified.

I was behind a truck today, branded on the tailgate with a logo for a local construction company called something like "We Make Pools".

Someone had scratched out the "l".

I giggled for half an hour, and realised yet again that I am tragically immature.

In the pub where I work, there is a tin of pens and pencils behind the bar, labelled PENS. Someone at some point has added an 'I' to make it read PEN!S. I smirk every time I see it.

And also whenever someone adds an 'I' to a TO LET sign to make it read TOILET.
'I reject your reality and substitute my own!'

My mom's hometown had a "Rooms To Let" sign on a house.   My brothers and I thought that was the funniest thing EVER! ::)

I am a longtime fan of Cecil Adams and his awesome column, "The Straight Dope," a Q&A column in which he answers any darn question asked, mostly rudely. Someone once wrote in asking about the pirate flag, and well, it was priceless.

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/998/why-was-the-pirate-flag-called-the-jolly-roger

The question, if you don't feel like clicking, starts like this: "Of course he's jolly because he hasn't any lips, but who was that flayed Roger immortalized by the buccaneers on their skull and crossbones?"

For some reason, this just KILLED me when I read it. I couldn't stop laughing. Since then, anything that causes inexplicable or out-of-proportion mirth in my circle has been called a Jolly Roger.
Words mean things.

I am the same way, MacademiaNut - our microwave screen says 'Enjoy your meal!' when it's ready - I'm always tickled by that and say 'Oh, well thank you microwave...' It's especially funny to me when my boyfriend is just warming his socks up in there (which is quite often actually.. Always clean socks though!) :-)

You are my new best friend; we can sit around for hours telling each other stupid puns, and we can laugh like loons.

I can just imagine Dark Boyfriend shaking his head at me when I full out cackle at a stupid pun.  They're my favorite!

We were in a Visitor Information Center in Philadelphia when an Amish couple walked in.

The lady behind the desk offered a warm greeting, 'How nice you've come to visit Philadelphia.  We usually tell people how to visit YOU'.

For some reason, remembering that always makes me chuckle.
