Starting this Monday: a new feature!

I just found out that due to the pandemic, the earliest I’ll be back to work is May 4th.

That means a whole month of not working!

I think Husband is worried. Not because of finances, but because… well, for this first week off I’ve mopped the floors, vacuumed twice, baked bread, repotted all my houseplants, prepped a basement wall for painting and boxed up all our Christmas lights.

Oh, this also makes my fourth post this week? So yeah. He’s a little worried.

But I don’t know why. It’s not like I really think those plans I downloaded are feasible. I mean, where would I even buy the rocket fuel?

(Seriously. Do you know where I can buy rocket fuel? Let me know soon, okay?)

In the meantime, we’ve got a big announcement. We’re starting a new feature!

And if you’ve been paying any attention at all, you should have some inkling as to what it is.

That’s right! We’re starting a Bad Joke feature.

Look, I even made a logo for it:

Real professional, don’t you think?

Starting this Monday, I’ll post a couple jokes to get the ball rolling. Then you step in with your own joke in the comments.

(Oh, and I doubt it needs to be said because I know you’re all lovely people, but only nice jokes permitted. Nothing racist, sexist, or any other kind of -ist. K?)

The bad joke I like best will be showcased the following Monday for everyone to admire and heap praise upon.

An added inducement: if you’re the winner, I’ll post the link to your blog if you’re a blogger. And if you’re not a blogger, I’ll just say nice things about you.

Though more likely, I’ll just make fun of your shoes.

So start thinking of a joke now, okay? And stay tuned for Monday!

  1. Well, my repertoire of PG jokes is limited since I’m a musician. Are blonde jokes acceptable? Since I’m a blonde (under this grey), I’ve about heard them all. And I wear Birkenstocks so imagine you WILL make fun of my shoes.

      1. That’s one of my favorites. Well, check that one off the list. But I know more extremely dirty musician jokes. That’s one of the cleanest. Since I play French Horn, I lean towards trumpet or trombone jokes, flute is 3rd place.

        1. Ah, see, my husband hasn’t been around because he’s isolated at work anyway, and my cats sleep all day. So really, I can do whatever I want. Though with a whole month in front of me, I’ve got to come up with something better than cleaning!

  3. Silver linings! I will definitely love this though as someone who can never remember the punchline unless I have forgotten the lead in, I probably won’t contribute actual fractured and unintelligible bits of joke. Go ahead, make fun of my shoes …. it’s probably overdue 💫

  4. Ah, so you’re the one pilfering all the yeast. I normally bake specialized bread for the wife, who’s gluten sensitive, but I can’t find any…

    You’d think I’d have a collection of bad jokes, but I normally make ’em up on the fly. Even the Russian doll joke was off Google. So I don’t have a lot to contribute here…

    1. A recent NYT article said the yeast, flour, etc. shortage had less to do with fear-hoarding and more to do with — what they called — “anxiety baking.”
      I honestly thought I was the only one who did that!

      As for your joke shortage, someone has to be in the audience. 😉
