Cute, Funny, Sad: The Home Game

I enjoy playing with words and sentences. One might even refer to me as a "word player". So, I was goofing around with words the other day and created a new game called "Cute, Funny, Sad."  It's easy to play - you start a sentence with something cute, then make it funny and finish it off with a twist of sadness.  Really, it's a game the whole family will love!  Here are ten that I created while my wife was watching The Biggest Loser:



       CUTE                         FUNNY                          SAD
1. The bunny rabbit.......... hopped on one leg..............because one had been shot off in Vietnam.

2. The old man..................got a 'wet willy'..........from the nurse that was there to change his bedpan.

3. The mushroom..............played beach volleyball.......in Charlie Sheen's withdrawal hallucination.

4. Punxsutawney Phil.......was pulled from his den........frozen and dead of hypothermia.

5. Mrs. Claus's..................tummy growled..................... because Vixon smelled delicious in the oven.

6. The little boy...................farted..................................at his dog's funeral.

7. Build-A-Bear Workshop.....was eaten........................by a group of angry, anti-cloning bears.

8. The baby...........................giggled..............................at the homeless clown.

9. Justin Bieber...............cut off his hair................because his Barbie Doll needed hair extensions.

10. Tinkerbell...................shaved her back......................to get rid of the fairy lice.

If you've got a "Cute, Funny, Sad", I'd love to read it in the comments.

I lost it with #6 & #10. Hilarious.

Nikki said...

I had to do everything within my power to prevent bursting out laughing at these so my children (who are in trouble for multiple accounts of naughtiness) wouldn't come running to see what I was reading.

Joan said...

I'm tempted to modify this for my 6th graders, but I don't think I want to know what they would come up with!

TS Hendrik said...

I have to say, I think that even with the ending #6 just stays funny. I think the first is my favorite though.

middle child said...

The baby skunk/got his head stuck in a syrofoam cup/and got hit by a car.

Kristen said...

The guy in the truck behind me........
is riding so close that I can tell he is handsome.......
and now he is in a ditch because I had to hit the breaks.

This is a TRUE story and I am hiding in the house feeling guilty for continuing to drive on. He shouldn't have been so close, and he was cute, I hope he's not hurt! I am so glad he didn't hit me.... OH back to your game....
I can see why your teachers loved you - you made them laugh in an otherwise boring day!

T said...

I'm enjoying mixing it up a little...

throw the cute/funny/sad sayings in different bowls and the possibilities are endless!

Okay, not technically endless... but I don't want to do the math.

Oilfield Trash said...

You never fail to amuse me. Thanks for keeping the funneh up.

Holly Ruggiero said...

My favorite is #4.

FabuLeslie said...

YAYyayay!! [clapping] Word games!! Wheee! ooo, ooo, me, me! My turn: The Bachelor...got tickled by his date....and said he wanted to go 'repelling' when he meant 'rappelling.'

Joann Mannix said...

You had me at fairy lice.

The pink piggie got lost in his pigmobile on the way to visit his relatives in Swineville, he found himself in Pork Town where he ended up as sizzling bacon in a desperate Elmer Fudd's frypan.

Sorry, it's the best I can do, I'm tired from the Super Bowl.

Teachinfourth said...

Mr. Z's class' heads were so filled with unless drivel that they all exploded.

Oh yeah...

Baby Sister said...

This was hilarious. I approve. The chipmunk....stole a nut from his brother...to find it was covered in poo.

Kristina P. said...

Love it. Sometimes, I wish I had thought of this stuff first. Maybe I will just plagarize you.

Julie said...

Super Fun Game! I think Kristen's comment is the best.

I love putting my feet in water
And wiggling my toes like they're fishes
Because the pipes burst and my house is flooded

ModernMom said...

Oh my teachers never gave me asignments like that in class! lol

SherilinR said...

how can i be the first to vote for the wet willy giver as the best? i mean, come on, wet willies are always hilarious!

lisleman said...

fairy lice - really?
the worm wiggled
the girl giggled
the bird had fresh worm breakfast

Justin said...

Little Miss Muffet... sat on a tuffet... while in prison for manslaughter.

Melinda said...

I loved #4, made me bust up laughing!

The baby smiled at me....then giggled...because he was pooping on my lap.

Or how about:

My husband...hopped from foot to foot...because I set his shoes on fire.

See I'm good at this too!!

Impulsive Addict said...

When I grow up, I wanna be just as funny as you. And clever for coming up with a game that everyone loves and can play...except me. I have one but I'm not ready to reveal it just yet. (Ok...I lied. I totally don't have one but I'm gonna think of one and post it LATER!)

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Yeah, I can't think of anything as clever as yours and/or your followers'. This is a great, silly game, Cheeseboy.

Nancy C said...

I love #3. You are the funniest thing on the web, and I'm not just saying that. I will make an effort to comment more often.

Here's my shot...

The baby...threw her food off the high chair...because she likes her brains cut into triangles.

(Did I mention it was a baby zombie. They're still cute, yes?)

Jenn said...

Poor Punxsutawney Phil.... :)
LOL.. those were really cute, yet funny, yet so sad!! lol

Shrinky said...

What a clever and inventive lad you are, this game is a riot - thanks for making me laugh! It's tougher than it appears, after giving it 30 seconds thought, I've drawn a blank (sigh)..

-stephanie- said...

Did I play wrong? I laughed when I got to the sad line.

OK, now my attempt.

My husband...walked in to a wall....because the wine bottles were empty.

cute, funny, sad.

Cluttered Brain said...

#10 is hilarious....
Oh my...
love the word turn around....

Furry Bottoms said...

Jeez, where do you come up with these things!!! LOL :)

Copyboy said...

Now these would be awesome blog post headlines. Also I think i used the bunny one in my typing class.

Xmas Dolly said...

You're just too funny! You don't hold anything back, and I like that. Have a great day!

Teisha said...

Hilarious!

Susan in the Boonies said...

The white labrador...who had eaten fuschia playdough...pooped on the breast of the new fallen snow.

Cute...funny...sad...and partially true.
This is my life.

Lisa Loo said...

#1 reminded me of Spamalot and then I got distracted with "KILLER RABBITS!" and "Tis only a flesh wound" and "We are not yet dead" and a rousing sword fight with my son......so I got nothing--but fun was had all the same!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You got to watch out for those anti-cloning bears!

Lene said...

So freakin' funny.

The Church Lady said...

My puppy dog Cooper.....fell over while pooping in the snow.....and now his poop is stuck to his tail.

This is a fun game!! Thanks for sharing!!

Lazarus said...

Cheese: this was absolutely Grade A, Top USDA funny, nicely done!

Here are my two off-the-cuff attempts (I love this game already):

Mild Version:
The man in the adorable Barney outfit...went to pick up Chinese food to go...but when he got home he realized they forgot the dumplings.

Extreme version:
The man in the adorable Barney outfit...sat in the control room guffawing at "Family Guy"...until he laughed so hard that his elbow accidentally hit the "launch" button and he destroyed humanity with nuclear warheads!

OK, maybe I have to work on it. Hey, I didn't invent the game, I'm just playing along...

Sco said...

The yellow, fluffy chick..........................................
yodeled for all she was worth................................
behind the plastic wrapper of a Peeps container....

Amy said...

The aerobics instructor
was miming Richard Simmons
and then she was fired.


Funshine Bear
fed her pet monkey a walnut
then fed an alligator her pet monkey.

Debbie said...

What a fun idea! I am going to introduce this to my kids when they get home today. They will love it.

Just SO said...

The cat....grinned his secretive grin...because only he knew where he'd hidden the bodies.

SueLovesCherries said...

I can't even think to make my own, because yours keep infiltrating my mind! Oh, you're so good with these subtle brainwashing techniques!

By the way, I didn't spend the 2 years in Germany - just 4 months; the rest of the time was in Belgium. Germans are extremely clean and tidy people!

MiMi said...

Omagosh, the 1st one made me bust out laughing out loud!

Emmy said...

Lol! Okay this is our new dinnertime game! Seriously awesome.

Julie said...

I love these. The daycare kids had to come and see what I was doing. Funny!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Take care and God bless!!

Lourie said...

#4 and #5 have got to be my favorites! What does that say about me?

The neighbor's birds....squawked happily...until the cat ate them.

Kind of lame, but I don't want you know how dark and twisty I can really be. ;)

DEZMOND said...

I almost shed a tear after reading number 8 :( So touching ....

Hutch said...

Disturbingly hilarious!

Missy said...

The Fart at the Funeral took me out! Too Funny!

Shell said...

Considering how much I hate that groundhog right now, that one really made me laugh.

Lydia K said...

OMG, these are sick. Sick and totally funny.

Deborah said...

Aaaaahahaha!

Actually I started laughing uncontrollable at the photo!

That is a great game!

Lori said...

Sounds fun. Maybe you can play this with Cath and actually WIN a game for once! Maybe. :)

W.C.Camp said...

While downing a whole pizza, the fat wrinkly mushroom exclaimed 'My hunger's satisfied ... MOREL less"! Ooops, I thought the game was what the "Cut Fungi Said"? W.C.C.

Chris Phillips said...

Love #4! #10 was creepy at the funny turn.

how about:
The baby seal...
had a special club for seals...
that whacked it in the head.

Megan said...

this is the awesomest game ever.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

That? Was awesome. Great idea for my students in writing too!

IT IS ALLY said...

I love this but I'm not 100% sure I agree with your description of Justin Bieber as cute.

Thomas the Tank Engine...... puffed out pink steam....... because he needed routine maintenance.

Tree said...

You are a cute, funny, SAD man! lmao I love your technical term.. "word player." ;) And the Mrs. Claus one is SO wrong. LOL

The grits I'm eating... are yummy in my tummy... but just burnt the crap out of my mouth!

purseblogger said...

LOL! Tinkerbell, bwahaha!

mama-face said...

#5 and #6. bahaha. Although I know that a little boy farting would be happy no matter what the case.

GREAT GAME! The little boy I referenced would love it. He really will-can't wait for the next car ride.

Kelley said...

Who thinks of lice on the back of a fairy?? You are insane in the membrane and I love it!

Okie said...
