Chuckle Of The Day – 21st Century Birds And The Bees

by Sherry Riter in Chuckle

It is time to laugh and I’m sure you can all relate since you are reading a blog!

This one explains the Birds And The Bees in our new modern day terms.

youve got mail birds and bees

21st Century Birds And The Bees

A little boy goes to his father and asks, “Daddy, how was I born?”

The father answers, “Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.
We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to do a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and it said, “You’ve Got Male!”


Did you immediately laugh? Well, I didn’t because I didn’t get how that explained the facts of life! I thought, “What in the heck is he talking about?” So I re-read it a couple of times to actually understand each computer reference. (rolling my eyes at myself)

I love it! …even though it smacks a bit of The Matrix! It also reminds me of a scene in the delightful movie “Short Circuit” when the robot Johnny Five is peering in on Ally Sheedy’s character while she’s in the bath, & he comments lustily: “Nice software! ” 😉


2 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 2:15 am

I love that movie!!!!!!! Mom quotes Johnny Five all the time LOL


3 Skip_D October 11, 2012 at 3:56 pm

yup… so I see 😀 …looks like we’ve got something in common – besides a certain redhead of whom we both think very highly! 😉


4 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 7:28 pm

😉 You are both very sweet.


5 mom October 11, 2012 at 3:12 am

“You’ve go it my dear!” God only knows how my own short circuit works, but comprehension today was no problem. Yippee! However, could you please help me in comprehending Microsoft’s Excel, Powerpoint 2007?! I just need to have it on my resume. I won’t even use it in “real” life, I promise…lol. I have been asked to leave classes these classes in the 80’s and 90’s for holding up the class when the versions were just that, basic. How on earth do these bufoons think I’ll learn the most complicated version to date? Hello, me thinks it is they who need to comprehend a few neuro terms…lol.

Oh and the joke was cute, but as it happens so frequently, it sparked another tangent for me to off on. You must be thrilled I’m back…lol. Sounds as if you’re in good or better spirits. I hope so. Hugs!


10 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 7:58 am

Yes! I missed you! I thought maybe you went on vacation!!!!

PS I love, love, love Excel and Powerpoint!!!! I use them every day and they are fun! LOL


11 Susanne October 12, 2012 at 7:25 am life is anything but a vacation, but thanks for noticing my absensce.

As for any of the Microsoft Products….ewwwwww!! Boring and tedious stuff, not to mention the bump I sustained as a teenager, makes it’s language Greek to me. Double whammy. Sorrry I know you love them…


12 Sherry Riter October 12, 2012 at 8:05 am

So the tally of Excel dislikers is now up to 3! LOL

Well darn! I was hoping you were on a nice long vacation!!! I did miss you – your encouragement and humor!!! {{{{hugssss}}}}

There is one problem with this relationship between mumsy and popsy on the first rattle out of the box after having met at the cyber-cafe. In this case, I would recommend the use of an Installation Wizard, for future happiness in their relationship. An Installation Wizard is an application which guides you through the installation of another application, which then guides you through the process of installing another application, which then guides you through the process of another application…ad infinitum. The continued download from the hard drive to the motherboard after the initial culmination always keeps the RAM, not to mention the inbox (and access point) always full, adequate, overflowing, and satisfied…then subsequent exploration of interface with both the motherboard access point as well as interface with the joystick; keeping the relationship alive and vibrant, while avoiding unnecessary crashes and subsequent defragmentation programs involving e-lawyers and settlements of bytes and unfriending.
Other than that, perhaps activating the pop-up blocker afterwards.

trust me on this, I’m an engineer


15 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 12:26 pm

LOL Oh yeah and we all trust engineers! LOL


16 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 12:26 pm

LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was so funny! I’m sitting in my office eating lunch and cracking up!!!!


17 Ric Fox October 11, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Well, you should trust engineers. The above scenario at the start of the blog put into context to young junior an attempt at explaining his existence through mama and papa creating him; therefore, Papa is equal to Mama; an equation of their coexistence mathematically has thus resulted in his own being. The proof of such is not overtly difficult.
According to Newton’s 2cd Law- F=ma (i)
We know that – Pressure (P)=F/A, => F=PA ; (ii)
Therefore, from equation (i) & (ii);
PA=MA ….
squaring both sides:
PAPA=MAMA ; proved.
Engineers are the species with the solution to any problem.


18 Sherry Riter October 11, 2012 at 7:25 pm

You are DEFINITELY an engineer!!!


19 Ric Fox October 11, 2012 at 1:52 pm

and while we are on the topic of engineers; do you even know the difference between cowboy boots and engineering boots? Having been both, I happen to know and be extremely qualified to relate my findings.

Cowboy boots have all the bullshit on the outside.

and here’s another of my favorite hi tech jokes, regarding engineers

Three Texans go down to Mexico one night and get drunk and wake up in jail. They found out that they are to be executed for their crimes but none of them can remember what they have done. The first one is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if he has any last words. He says, “I am from the Baylor School of Divinity and I believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent.” They throw the switch and nothing happens, so they figure God must not want this guy to die, and they let him go. The second one is strapped in and gives his last words. “I am from the University of Texas School of Law and I believe in the eternal power of Justice to intervene on the part of the innocent.” The switch is thrown and again nothing happens. They figure that the law is on this guy’s side and let him go. The last one is strapped in and says, “Well, I’m a Texas Aggie Electrical Engineer, and I’ll tell you right now you’ll never electrocute anybody if you don’t connect those two wires.”

scientifically maniacally yours,

29 Joan October 12, 2012 at 2:40 pm

LOL LOL LOL I got it on the second read! 🙂


30 Sherry Riter October 12, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Well, I’m jealous! I think I had to read it four times before it really clicked!


31 Jack October 15, 2012 at 2:15 am

Well I don’t know from where you got this joke but please keep posting such great jokes. It really made my day. It was really funny and awesome. Today everyone is so crazy about computers that I won’t find it hard to believe if you said that someone had actually said this to their son. Whatever it is, it was one hilarious post.


32 Sherry Riter October 15, 2012 at 2:49 am

I’m SO glad you enjoyed it Jack! 😀


33 Jeo October 29, 2012 at 8:59 am

Now that was really funny. I laughed so much that my stomach started aching. I have a friend who is a computer geek and I could actually imagine him saying all this to his son. I shared this joke with his wife and she also agreed with it. We really had a good laugh at his expense. Really this is the best joke I have ever read.


34 Sherry Riter October 30, 2012 at 12:27 am

I’m so glad you all enjoyed it! 😀


35 Peter November 2, 2012 at 6:02 am

Now that is what I call an incredible joke. I don’t know why they don’t have more such nice and clean jokes. They are simple and decent that one can repeat it in front of their family. Jokes like these have become a rarity. today’s jokes are crass and full of foul and offensive words.


36 Sherry Riter November 2, 2012 at 8:03 am

I’m glad you enjoyed it!


37 Daniel November 29, 2012 at 5:28 am

Ha-ha! It was really funny. I really wish to see the expression of the kid, I know it will be worth a million dollar. I don’t know what the poor kid will say when we ask him what did he understand from what his father told him. I guess I am blessed with a father who is very cool and not a nerd or I don’t know how my life would be.


38 Sherry Riter November 29, 2012 at 5:36 am

Being a nerd isn’t so bad. LOL 😉


39 Kenny Sellards July 11, 2015 at 12:49 pm

*chuckle* I would say I was geeky enough to get it on the first read… but I’d actually shared this before! 😉 It did still bring a chuckle though! 😀 Thank you for sharing! <3


40 Sherry Riter January 19, 2016 at 12:08 am

🙂 Glad you enjoyed it a second time around!
