Funny New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions Are Funny

Every year people make resolutions to change something about themselves or start doing something differently. Unfortunately, those new year's resolutions end quickly and they are back to the same thing again. Setting new year's resolutions has become such a joke that it's probably more useful to write a list of funny new year's resolutions and laugh at them. You could, of course, set resolutions for yourself at any time of the year.

Here is a list of funny new year's resolutions that you can laugh at before you set yourself up for failure this year. Write your own funny new year's resolutions at the bottom of this page, so the list can be even longer. Good luck on your resisting falling into the new year's resolutions trap.

General Resolutions

I will...

  1. Start washing my hands after I use the restroom.
  2. Stop drinking orange juice after I just brushed my teeth.
  3. Stop licking frozen flag poles.
  4. Only get divorced and remarried once this year.
  5. Watch more movie remakes.
  6. Go back to school to avoid paying my student loans.

  9. Spend less than $1825 for coffee at Starbucks this year.
  10. Claim all my pets as dependents on my taxes

Technology-Related Resolutions

I will...

  1. Watch more cute and cuddly kitten videos on YouTube
  2. Check my work e-mail account at least once this year
  3. Switch my username to “password” and my password to “username” to make each a lot harder for hackers to figure out
  4. Watch less T.V…. in standard definition
  5. Stop buying worthless junk on Ebay, because QVC has better specials

  9. Start a blog about how I would write more often if I had something important to write. Only make one blog entry and leave it published for years
  10. Talk with a robot voice all the time

Ones About Weight Management

I will...

  1. Lose weight by hiding it somewhere you'll never find it.

  10. Eat more fruit... snacks

Ones About Finances

I will...

  1. Pay off my credit cards every month in full... with my other credit cards.
  2. Save some money for a rainy day. That way I can shop online instead of having to go to an actual store.

  4. Look for investors for my "home office" business.
  5. Lower my bills by digging a hole to put them in.
  6. Avoid getting a divorce by practicing polygamy.
  7. Borrow things more often. Return then less often.
  8. Visit the grocery more often than restaurants, especially when free samples are being served.
  9. Buy a fire extinguisher, so that my money won't burn a hole in my pocket.
  10. Stop throwing away money that could at least be burned for heat.

        Hi Blake ~ Thanks for the early morning laughs to start my day, especially the one I made about paying off my credit cards every month. My husband thought that was funny coming out of my mouth about twenty years ago.
