Magic 8 Ball Revisited

Whoa…apparently I have no balls. No, not literally. No, not even couragically (my word…you can’t use it). No, I totally missed another Theme Thursday post after having signed up. The theme was “balls”. One wonders what I would have come up with for that! That’s right…you don’t want to know.

Oh, ok, I’ll go ahead with the post late anyway…heck, I still made Thursday for Pacific Daylight Time.

Updated Magic 8-ball sayings.

That’s right. Do you realize how long the Magic 8-ball has been using the same old tired responses to your most urgent questions? I mean, come on, even fortune cookies have gone realistic and give you bad fortunes now. It’s time to update the answers to fit today’s world.

You couragically have balls, hah, I used it. And yup it is still Thursday and so you did make it. But I think I got a headache looking at all those Magic 8 balls.

God bless.

Elizabeth said...

Ha! A sarcastic Magic Eight Ball. I want one!
(still Thursday here, too)

moondustwriter said...

Ha and this is what you just magically pull out last minute.

Well aren't you master of the 8 ball

Subby said...

HA! Of course you know...you'll have to market this ;)

And how about one for "texters"? heh, heh...

Roy said...

Don't forget "Talk to the hand!"

lime said...

love the out of range option. that one just cracks me up.

Monkey Man said...

Realism for Magic 8 Balls is a tremendous idea. Always thought "you effing kiddin' me" should have been an answer.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

Love the last one!

The Incredible Woody said...

Reply hazy. Try again.

ReformingGeek said...

Wow! Did you think that up all by yourself?

Hee Hee.

Kidding. Kidding.

;-)

RA said...

LOL
Not marketable (whose word?). People don't want balls, any balls, telling them NO in any way or form.

Quirkyloon said...

Of course I have to do the annoying thing (which I excel at) and add one of my own. *grin*

"You WANT me on that wall."

Baino said...

Heh, someone else who's late. I don't feel so alone. How about Blogger is a bastard. Had three goes at publishing this inane comment

Gladys said...

VE Love your balls. They are so BIG!

I was late too. do you think it had anything to do with balls?

sharonheg said...

"Balls," said the Queen. "If I had them, I'd be King."

My mother used to say this in my presence when I was young . Like, REALLY young. I still don't get that...???

Tom said...

i guess your ball's got a USB port?

VE said...

mrsupole – I’m sending the gnomes over right now to deal with your illegal usage of my word. Don’t worry…you’ll never see their prank coming…

Elizabeth – Everyone does…we’re so used to abuse now it’s become the norm!

Moondustwriter – Yes, I am the master of my balls…wait, that doesn’t sound good…

Subby – They’d probably sue me if I tried to market…as usual…

Roy – Excellent…I would definitely use that one…

Lime – So true…isn’t it?

Monkey man – Me too…I use that all the time when I’m on the road…

Perpetual chocoholic – In the future…that will be the ONLY answer…

Incredible woody – Same as the skies over LA!

Reforminggeek – As a matter of fact…I did…

RA – People are used to abuse now…they WANT the abuse. They NEED the abuse…

Quirkyloon – Somebody knows their Jack Nicholson quotes!

Baino – It was worth it though! Thanks for the determination!

Gladys – I love it when women say that…wait…the wifey-poo does not approve…

Sharonheg – You got me…there must be a story there…

Tom – I hope not…sounds uncomfortable…

CatLadyLarew said...

You are doomed! How come I keep getting that one?

unfinishedperson.com said...

I like the last one, but I don't have to have a Magic 8-ball to tell me that. I already do that every day, in fact, I think I'm going to surf now.

California Girl said...

I agree with Subby, you should market this. Hahahahaha!

aladdinsane12 said...

losing totally IS the new winning! and broke is the new black.

JenJen said...

lol I love these...more!

Subby said...

VE, sue, shmue! It dinna hae to be an 8 ball, y'ken...er y'know...or "magic" either. It could be something like...um..."VE's Fantastical Orb"...er...

Jaime said...

i never liked the magic 8 ball... it would always come up in between two says so i got neither... i wonder what that says about me and the answers to my questions?

Janna said...

For some reason, my favorite is the one that says "You Are Doomed."

It's so nice to find honesty in this day and age.

VE said...

catladylarew - You're probably holding all the wrong cards. You need to steal the good cards from your neighbors...

unfinishedperson - True...but you'll still shake the 8ball to see that answer...everyone does...

california girl - I'm sure there are plenty of patents to sue me with...

aladdinsane12 - So that's why so many people wear black now!

jenjen - That's the trouble with the magic 8 ball...you always want more...

subby - Fantastical orb...I like it!

jaime - Ha! I forgot you could make it come up with a split decision...

janna - The great thing about that one is that it's nowhere but up from there and each and every positive just helps you prove it wrong (unless you really are doomed, of course)...

Annie Ha said...

blame the bankers! I like it! Drink the koolaid!

VE said...

annie ha - That's a good one...unless you live in Guyana...

Roy Scribner said...

Or Gonorrhea - their Koolaid is also suspect.
