PA Grandma, Joyce, use to post on this Depression forum, and for awhile did a column of jokes and words of wisdom. Her last column was 5/1/2018 before she passed away not long after that.
For about a week, I wrote her column for her, which consisted largely of sayings. I came across some jokes lately and thought I would post some of them. Joyce included humor in her column, so that reminds me of her, also.
Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars
Any heart not tough nor strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, holds a lot of rain
I'm young, I know, but even so
I know a thing or two
I've learned from you
I've really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a stove, burns you when it's hot
Some fools rave of happiness
Some fools fool themselves I guess
But they're not fooling me
I know it isn't true, know it isn't true
Love is just a lie, made to make you blue

I didn’t mean to fall in love, but I did.
You didn’t mean to hurt me, but you did.

If you wanted to boil down all of popular music to just two words — or better yet down to just two syllables — you couldn’t do better than “Love Hurts.” The great majority of all songs are variations on this two-beat meme. Love gets us up in the morning, obsesses us all day and keeps us up at night, alternating brief moments of ecstasy with stretches of anguish.
Usually we’re talking about romantic love, but it could also be love of family or love of friends, love of home or love of drink. Countless songs have tried to explain how the thing that’s so thrilling one moment can be so painful the next, but only one song boiled it down to nine letters.
The songwriters who performed this prodigious act of distillation in 1960 were Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, a husband-and-wife team in Nashville who’d already had #1 pop hits with the Everly Brothers and top-10 country hits with Carl Smith, Eddy Arnold and Little Jimmy Dickens.
Boudleaux (pronounced BOOD-low) was a classically trained violinist; Felice (pronounced feh-LEESS) couldn’t read music, but they worked together seamlessly to create marvels of minimalism that are still sung today — songs such as “Bye Bye Love,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” “Rocky Top,” “Sleepless Nights,” “How’s the World Treating You” and “Love Hurts.”
Earlier versions of the song by the Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison, but the article says, “the best version of “Love Hurts” is the incandescent duet between Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, recorded in 1973….”
