Memories that make you laugh out loud(83 Posts)
I hope I'm not being unreasonable on a Friday night to ask for those memories that when you remember them have you randomly laughing away.. . Even when you're in public (I.e sat on the bus..)
When we both still lived at home my sister was laying in bed late one night, having fallen asleep listening to her iPod.. the next thing she is rudely awoken by our naked mother landing on top of her! Turns out my mum (pissed) had taken a wrong turn on the way to the toilet, wandered into my sister's room, slipped on a magazine and landed on my poor sister! Even funnier was that my poor mum broke her thumb in the process!
It still makes me laugh when I think about it now
Haha! That is brilliant.
Mine was when I was about 14 and gone shopping with a friend. There was an electric section in littlewoods and my friend picked up a microphone and said "hello" thinking it was a karaoke machine....
It was the whole shop sound system. The music stopped and everything! I nearly weed and still laugh about it now!!
At high school my friend put a flavoured condom in his mouth in call to see what it tasted like. Teacher came along said what are your eating, he mumbled "chewing gum" (condom still in mouth) don't know why we weren't allowed that either!
We were all in stitches there was a bit of back and forth spit it out now/I don't want to ect. eventually he mumbled he was embarrassed to spit it out in front of people and was permitted to go to the toilet to spit it out.
I have probably not explained it well but it was so excruciatingly hilarious that I can make myself giggle thinking about it even though it was over 15 years ago!
Eeeeeh love them!
I also laugh about the time my sister was pooed on by a chick when we were at primary school... the look of horror on her 7 year old face 😂😂
Age 16 trying Zumba for the first time with my older (fitter) sisters, though I was doing alright and was actually motivated to become a regular goer! Unfortunately a bunch of people came in late and we had to shuffle forward to make room for another row behind us, which resulted in the woman in front of me not realising how close I was an swinging her leg back and kicking me right in the privates not the health kick i paid £3 for! (But so funny in hindsight)
Being caught skinny dipping by a crowd of ramblers.
Years ago in my first proper job, the phone went and my older, experienced,
colleague (very distractedly) picked up a barcode scanner and said “hello?” into it a few times and couldn’t understand why the phone was still ringing. It was nearly 20 years ago and I still laugh at the memory!
I was helping a friend clean out her flat before she moved house. I was kneeling down wiping out the inside of the wardrobe when I must of leant on the edge and it toppled forwards trapping me inside. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t push it off me, and my friend (once she realised I wasn’t hurt!) was laughing so hard she couldn’t pull it off me. It makes me giggle every time I think of it and it was about 20 years ago now
My cousin and I had lunch in the underground part of a shopping centre. When we finished my cousin excitedly ran to the escalator so we could start shopping. Unfortunately for her it was the descending escalator so she ran up the first few steps and then went sprawling along the polished tile floor in her arse.
I was ringing looking for car parts for my Dad and the man on the phone asked me a question that I didn't know the answer to. I said "Here, he wants to ask you a question" and left the phone beside him on the table. My father, puffing his fag, cool calm and collected picked up the phone and said "Hello"? Except it wasn't the phone, it was the TV remote.
I can't think of any right now but enjoying reading everyone else's.
Years ago I got into bed just before DH. He came into the room as he was undressing. He caught his foot in his trousers and started hopping out of control along the length of the room. He was leaning forward trying to regain his balance and bit into the top of the chest of drawers which stopped him dead.It really hurt his teeth and jaw. Meanwhile I was howling with laughter in the bed. I was still chuckling hours later...and, in fact, am cracking up now as I write this. It was hysterical....but I suppose you had to be there!
My Friend spilled a coffee into a printer. We ran for the it person but said "We didn't know why it's not working..." just the a page printed out... smeared in coffee....
It person picked it up said "oh... could it be the coffee, milk or sugar" My Friend said "oh no! There want any sugar!!!!" Like that made any difference... We howled for .... well weeks.
My fiancee and I got together when we were 16 (we're 25 now & have a 10 month old boy) and one day we were walking back to his from school. He was randomly eating some After Eights from the box - I started chasing him to grab one. We got to these steep, long steps, him still running full speed, he couldn't stop himself and ended up crashing into steel railings, badly scraping up his leg but all he could do was sit up, glasses askew, holding his box of After Eights which he had crushed into the railing and mournfully cry - 'MY AFTER EIGHTS!!' The whole thing was so funny to watch and to this day whenever there are After Eights we'll look at each other and say- 'MY AFTER EEEEEIIIIGGGHHHTTTTS
I remember a sunny afternoon in my childhood and we had decided to eat lunch outside.
My brother sat on our swing to eat. Daft idea and we told him so, but he didn't listen.
Of course, he lost his balance. Rather than trying to save himself, he decided his food was more important. So, he plummeted to the ground backwards, having clapped his plate to his chest, both arms cradling it.
I will always remember the sound that made, and the sight of him picking bits of crisp out of his jumper afterwards.
His attitude to food hasn't changed now we're adults.
Had just finished washing dye out of my friends hair and blow dried it, only to then sit on the loo and read the back of the shampoo bottle for it to tell me it was dog shampoo
I have so many but they all occured with my ex best friend with us both absolutely pissed to the point of oblivion (before either of us had any babies) and I can only remember snippets of the night/funny things that happened.. because we was so unbelievably pissed. Oh I miss her
Love reading other peoples
At the beach with my SIL. She was standing in the water (knee high) and I was taking her picture. I saw a reasonably big wave coming and told her to turn around (I don't know why she listened to me). She did and promptly got hit by the wave and fell down. We both still laugh about it.
At a party for a 4yr old in a play area.
In the party room, one of the girls brought in a Hello Kitty cake for the birthday boy who was having a pirate party.
The main helper looked and said no, the pirate cake for in here.
The girl turned, stepped off the 5cm high stage, stood on the birthday boy, went sprawling to the floor completely wrecking the cake. Her shoes came off, her hat came off, the cake. The poor cake.
I couldn't stop laughing. I had to leave the room and was weeping tears of laughter.
7 years later my dd's still go on about how I laughed so hard all the way home.
You had to be there.
A few years ago I was coming down the stairs with a basket of washing. Our stairs were open to the lounge. DH was sat on the sofa. I didn't see one of our cats sleeping on a stair. Trod on him, slipped violently down the stairs. Meanwhile our other very nervous cat had jumped so much from the sudden noise he landed on DHs head scratching him badly. I couldn't understand why he had his head in his hands and wasn't helping me. It was only relaying the story to other people that we realised how funny it was.
Eeeh I'm laughing away at these 😂😂😂
The cake 😂😂
The other one that gets me every time, DH on the phone booking a fishing trip. After getting lots of information the person on the other end obviously starts taking DHs details, DH says 'My name?'.. Well obviously I had to reply 'JR Hartley'. How DH finished that call I don't know. I was crying.
On Halloween it is traditional to end our trick or treating at my parents house for a hot chocolate. Last year one of my older DDs chose to go round with her friends instead of with her
embarrassing beloved family but we all arranged to meet up round at granny and grandpa's at the end as normal. Myself and the younger DCs duly arrived at grandparents house and to our great amusement my VERY middle class, straight laced, quiet and retiring, pillar-of-the-community-type father answered the door wearing a long white hooded robe with the hood covering his face. It was some outfit he had bought or been given on a trip to Egypt many years previously and which he had uncovered during a recent wardrobe clear out and decide to give us all a laugh on Halloween. I really cannot stress just how out of character it was for him to get dressed up and enter into the spirit of things (no pun intended ).
Anyway, we went into the house and mum was chatting away and mentioned that she had been expecting a neighbour with a young toddler to pop round earlier in the evening. It had been pre-arranged for the little one's first ever "trick or treat" experience and mum had prepared a little bag of toddler friendly treats that were separate from the more general treats she had in for the older visitors. Anyway, as it turned out the neighbour hadn't come round at the agreed time so mum assumed their plans must have changed for some reason, maybe the little one had been unwell or had a late nap. Anyway, we thought no more about it!
A short while later my DD text me to say she was on her way round with her friends, so we all egged my dad on to give them a big fright when they knocked on the door. He duly put his hood up, turned off the porch light and waited for the knock, whilst we all giggled away with anticipation in the front room. A minute later the door knocked and he opened the door with a big scary roar. Followed by... silence... swiftly followed by frantic scrabbling around and the porch light quickly being switched back on and the sound of my poor dad apologising profusely whilst calling my mum to tell her the neighbour with the little toddler was on the doorstep for her treats 😂. Thankfully the small child was completely unphased and happily collected her little bag of treats however goodness only knows what the neighbour must have thought, having made a special arrangement for a nice, gentle introduction to Halloween with my quiet and respectable parents only to be faced by my dad, dressed like a member of the KKK, leaping out at them in the dark, roaring 😂
My parents were both utterly mortified and I can pretty much guarantee that there will be NO dressing up taking place at their house this Halloween or ever again!!! The memory still makes me cry with laughter whenever I think of it
My main one is too outing
But when recently DS2 said that my very long curly haired friend looked just like 'Samuel Pepys' - she does too !!!
When DS1 had a vomit bug and puked a bit on DPS face a little bit
evil but his facial expression !
And a very inappropriate video that was meant to show the cultural diversity of our work but was loads of women basically doing a sexy dance and we had to watch it straight faced
Meat I have an ex best friend too. I miss her so much. We shared some of the best moments of our lives together
