Cancer Comic Strip

My name is Suzan St Maur and I've had cancer twice. I find that humor helps me get through my cancer, and from what I understand it helps many others too. This blog is dedicated not to information about the disease, but to cancer warriors and their relatives/friends who just want some cheering chuckles. By all means share your funny stories and jokes with us - email them to suze @ suzanstmaur.com (If you want to know more about me see my profile on here or http://HowToWriteBetter.net)

Terrific opportunity for UK cancer kids

Julie Dugan from Bournemouth, UK, writes:

I volunteer at a local charity in Bournemouth called the Youth Cancer Trust. It is a small charity that gives free holidays to young people with cancer.

I spent time one evening this week "babysitting" 4 teenage boys - 2 with cancer (each had brought a friend) it amazed me how they were so matter of fact about their tumours. I am sure that if I ask Brenda the wonderful lady who founded the charity (in memory of her daughter who died at the age of 21) she would have have some good jokes from the youngsers. I will forward them to you.

If you have a moment they have a website - it is http://www.yct.org.uk.

If you come across any young people who you feel would benefit please do not hesitate to contact me or the charity. My next big task for them is a "marketing" campaign to get more young people to the house. Fundraising has been going well - so they are able to offer more places now!

Please support Julie, Brenda and Co as much as you can - especially if you're based in the Bournemouth area.

And for our daily funny?

Well, while we're on the topic of kids, let's share this useful Q & A about pregnancy and childbirth. Once again, thanks to the original author whoever s/he may be...

Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.

Q: How will I know if my vomiting is morning sickness or the flu?
A: If it's the flu, you'll get better.

Q: What is the most common pregnancy craving?
A: For men to be the ones who get pregnant.

Q: What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
A: Childbirth.

Q: The more pregnant I get, the more often strangers smile at me. Why?
A: 'Cause you're fatter than they are.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?

Q: What's the difference between a nine-month pregnant woman and a model?
A: Nothing (if the pregnant woman's husband knows what's good for him).

Q: How long is the average woman in labor?
A: Whatever she says divided by two.

Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word "alimony" means anything to you.

Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.

Q: Does pregnancy cause hemorrhoids?
A: Pregnancy causes anything you want to blame it for.

Q: What does it mean when a baby is born with teeth?
A: It means that the baby's mother may want to rethink her plans to nurse/breastfeed.

Q: What is the best time to wean the baby from nursing/breastfeeding?
A: When you see teeth marks.

Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.
